Main Description:

The House:

A very impressive property, constructed during 2004/2005 and overlooking fields to both front and rear. The home is located close to important local travel connections and will suit a large variety of buyers, especially those wishing to select a property with little need for ongoing improvement and maintenance.

The large open-plan kitchen, living and dining area is fitted with wall and base units in grey gloss, is fully loaded with appliances and finished with Corian worktops. The separate formal lounge is well-proportioned and includes feature vaulted ceiling with Velux roof light and a log burner and both these primary rooms benefit from under floor heating. In addition to this the ground floor includes a fully fitted study and large utility room with storage.

To the first floor there is an impressive feature landing which is positioned to take advantage of the excellent far-reaching views which include Winter Hill and its surrounding moorland; also the master bedroom to the rear overlooks fields and also includes views towards the surrounding countryside. Each first floor bedroom is fitted with bedroom furniture/storage and the sanitary ware is of a neutral style.

Externally, the home is finished with a driveway and electric gates with further access to the detached brick-built garage with electric doors and to the rear there is a flagged patio, tucked away bin storage area, and a lawned garden which opens onto and views over fields immediately.

The Area:

Blackrod is a popular village within the BL6 postcode area and therefore benefits from brilliant access to key transport links such as Blackrod train station which is just over 0.5 miles away and Horwich Parkway which is just over 2 miles away. Junction 6 of the M61 is around 2 miles away. As a result, many locals consider Manchester and the Trafford Centre as an appropriate distance to work, shop and socialise. The Ofsted rated 'Outstanding' Blackrod Country Primary School is just a stone's throw away and it is worth viewing a satellite image of the property to appreciate the abundance of green land immediately surrounding the home. We find that in addition to the transport links, a strong factor attracting people to the general area is the access to this excellent countryside. The neighbouring area of Horwich has great access to a stretch of the West Pennine Moors and Winter Hill, together with large areas owned by the Woodland Trust, whilst the village itself includes access towards Haigh and the neighbouring village of Adlington which includes a stretch of the Leeds-Liverpool canal.

In terms of commercial facilities, the village includes a handful of shops and services, together with doctors and a library, with further opportunities available within Adlington, Chorley and Horwich town centres working 'hand-in-hand' with the out of town retail development, close to the football stadium which is a distance of around 2.5 miles away.
