Full description

Knowsley Fold:
Knowsley Fold is the plot on which the original Knowsley Grange sat prior to the redevelopment of its grounds and enjoys therefore one of the most desirable positions within Knowsley Grange. The plot extends to approx 1.5 acres and is available for the first time in nearly three decades. The current property is a well-loved detached home of around 3500 sq ft. It is evident when comparing this home to some of the units within the same cul-de-sac that the plot has potential for the creation of a variety of new build opportunities.
Knowsley Grange is one of the town's most prestigious locations and supports house sales at a particularly high value with the most recent Land Registration entry at £2.75m. We believe that our subject property possesses the largest plot within Knowsley Grange and therefore would support the development both in terms of plot size and potential end value with the creation of a huge detached dwelling. We have been given guidance by a planning consultant and architect that the size could be up to 800 sq m / 8500 sq ft. Guidance from these professionals has also suggested that retaining the current structure and building one additional dwelling is highly likely to receive planning permission (and indeed there was a planning permission long since expired) to add an additional house in the garden. There also appears to be potential to demolish the existing home and build up to three executive properties.
This opportunity is likely to appeal to a wide array of purchasers from developers through to an individual wishing to create a very large bespoke home. The attributes of this plot and its various styles of potential could be described using much more text, but it is perhaps easier to discuss the topic and we would therefore ask that you contact Ben Washington directly at Lancasters Estate Agents to discuss the proposition in more detail .

The Area:Knowsley Grange is located just off Chorley New Road within Heaton and is one of the town¿s most prestigious roads. It plays host to a number of large high value dwellings where the Land Registry shows the most recent entry at £2.75m. Important transport links such as the mainline train station towards Manchester is just around one mile away whilst junction 5 of the M61 is approximately two miles away. We therefore find that many people settle within this area who wish to benefit from these transport links and have a requirement to commute towards Manchester and beyond. More generally speaking the town maintains a remarkable balance of family friendly characteristics: on one hand the aforementioned transport links make the area an ideal commuter belt whilst those who have desire to have easy access to superb countryside will also be delighted to know that the West Pennine moors and Smithills Estate (which has recently been purchased by the Woodland Trust) have access points at between 1-2 miles and the summit of Winter Hill is approximately one hour¿s walk from the house. In terms of amenities there is a traditional town centre in nearby Horwich offering many independently owned shops and services which combines brilliantly with the large 'out of town' retail development close to the football stadium and includes large supermarkets together with the likes of cinema, gym, restaurants etc. Bolton Town Centre and rail station are approximately 2 miles away and are accessible via a high frequency bus service with stops approximately 200m from the house. Many locals would also consider Manchester and the Trafford Centre as an appropriate distance to shop and socialise. Schooling often plays a large role when purchasing such a dwelling and the renowned Bolton School is approximately 1 mile away on the bus route and provides care from Nursery age up to A-Level. There are also a host of excellent primary schools which have been consistently popular and attract people to settle within the area with a good choice of further secondary school options dotted around town.
