Property Description

Full description

A beautifully crafted and restored townhouse in this prime location within the centre of Bury.

Situated within the medieval grid, a short distance to the amenities and cultural facilities, 78 Whiting Street is an attractive early-19th-century period house, built of traditional construction with white brick elevations underneath a slate roof, and re-built on an older site by William Steggles of The Guildhall Feoffment Trust.

The property has been beautifully refurbished and remodelled, undertaken by Moore & Stone under the supervision of John Stebbing Architects, who were located in this office before their move to new premises in Barton Road.

The refurbishment has beautifully fused the original fabric and elements of the property with contemporary nuances and a stunning monopitch sitting room extension which cleverly balances the accommodation, as well as forming an internal glass courtyard feature. During the renovation, the property was re-roofed, as well as undergoing a full rewiring and re-plumbing programme, with the addition of stylish high-quality modern fittings, bathrooms and beautiful hand-crafted modern parquet flooring.

The accommodation on the ground floor comprises entrance hall with sweeping curved staircase to the upper floors, and cloakroom with ceramic-tiled floors and space and plumbing for washing machine. The main living space is split-level and a beautiful fusion of the original building and its contemporary extension, set off by attractive handmade modern oak parquet flooring and a hand-built Shaker kitchen incorporating a double oven with induction hob and hood above, and integrated fridge, freezer and dishwasher, as well as a stylish matching island with granite worktop and inset sink.

Furthermore, where the table is likely to be placed, there is an attractive fireplace with freestanding modern wood-burning stove, leading down to a vaulted sitting room which also has the lovely oak parquet flooring and glazed end wall with bi-fold doors leading to the walled landscaped garden. The cellar has been converted and has the oak parquet flooring - and would make a perfect snug or home office.

Leading up from the staircase is a half landing with one of, we believe, only two remaining in-situ original outhouses, which has been refurbished and makes a pleasant feature of the staircase. On the first floor, there is a master bedroom with en suite ‘Jack-and-Jill’ bathroom, and further double bedroom.

On the second floor is bedroom 3, with attractive original painted brickwork and exposed timbers, Heritage Velux window and access to a large en suite and large walk-in airing cupboard.

The west-facing walled garden has been beautifully landscaped, with an exposed brick-and-flint wall, enjoying a good deal of privacy and seclusion.
