Full description

The House:
Foxgill is an excellent four-bedroom detached which is well presented and offers further scope for extension. There are lovely private views to the rear over fields and surrounding countryside. The plot itself is well proportioned and attractively landscaped. To the front there is a large block-paved 'in and out' style driveway and an integral single garage with hard standing to the side (currently used to house a trailer). The stunning kitchen is finished in a cream gloss, includes many integral appliances and enjoys the excellent views, as do the dining room and main lounge. All four bedrooms include fitted furniture and Bedroom 4 which is currently used as a study has the thoughtful addition of an integrated, fold-down double bed. Houses of this age generally offer nicely proportioned rooms and include family-friendly features such as separate utility, downstairs wc. The master bedroom includes an en suite shower room; Bedroom 2 also incorporates a shower and hand basin and Bedroom 3 includes a hand basin.
The Area:
Foxgill is positioned at one of the town's most prestigious addresses and on a side of the road which offers excellent plot sizes and open views. The access to the surrounding countryside is literally on the door step and many people buy within the town due to the practical balance of nearby countryside and good motorway and train links; the present occupier, for instance, worked in Manchester for many years and enjoyed retreating after a day at work into this semi-rural setting. The closest commercial centre is Horwich town centre itself and the town is also served by an out of town complex which includes larger supermarkets, cinema, restaurants etc.

Exit Horwich via Church Street, proceeding over the mini-roundabout next to Horwich Leisure centre and take the first formal turning on your left into Mill Lane. Where the road forks continue to the right into Foxholes Road where the subject property will be on your right hand side.
