The Avenue, Bury, Greater Manchester


Guide price

  • Bedrooms: 3
A freehold double bay fronted detached true bungalow in a well regarded residential location approximately 1 mile north of Bury town centre. The Avenue is located off The Drive forms part of the grounds for the original Seedfield House, a mansion house constructed during the latter part of the 18th century. The houses on The Drive & The Avenue were constructed during the late 1920s and we would estimate that 5 The Avenue was constructed at this time. Our vendors have knowledge of the original plans which were for a pair of semi detached houses to be built, but the builder at the time chose to construct a single bungalow, on the instructions from his wife! The accommodation offers two or three bedrooms set in quite a magnificent plot. We believe that there is huge potential for a prospective purchaser to remodel the accommodation and create a bespoke two storey home. With combination gas central heating and upvc double glazing the property currently comprises: entrance hall, guest cloakroom/w.c., lounge with open fireplace, dining room, kitchen, inner hall, two bedrooms and a further sitting room or three bedrooms, there is also a five piece bathroom. To the outside there are mature gardens to the front and rear, there is a side driveway leading to the double detached garage with power and light and remotely operated door.
