A rather unique opportunity to purchase a four bedroom detached stone property nestled within pleasant hills and enjoying far reaching views. Marklands House is Grade II listed and much of the property is thought to pre-date its 1746 date stone. We would expect the property to appeal to those house buyers seeking their 'forever home'. Please note that whilst the dwelling has been well loved it is now dated throughout and so any purchaser should have funds in excess of the asking price to allow for the necessary upgrades. This therefore provides an ideal opportunity for the end user to produce a home finished to their own choice and specification. The generous plot combines a large driveway with detached garage, lawned and wooded areas. We really must underline the rare opportunity on offer and homes of this style are very seldom placed into the open market.
The Area:Marklands House is located on Foxholes Road which is one of the towns most prestigious addresses. The lovely rural setting allows the property to enjoy far reaching views to the front and benefit from a great sense of privacy. Despite the home being positioned in the countryside the property is just around one mile from Horwich town centre and important travel connections such as junction 6 M61 is 4 away and Horwich Parkway train station which is on the mainline to Manchester provides further access towards London and Manchester airport is around 4 miles away. Horwich itself offers a choice of nurseries and there are both primary and secondary schools. The consistently popular privately run Bolton School is around 4 miles away. In terms of commercial amenities Horwich centre itself is a popular centre with free parking and a classic range of shops, such as butchers, bakers, fishmonger etc and some small supermarkets and convenience stores whilst some larger retail outlets are positioned at the Middlebrook retail complex close to the motorway link.
Directions:Exit Horwich via Lee Lane towards Church Street, passing the parish church on the left hand side. After a short distance turn left into Mill Lane which will then fork towards Factory Hill and Foxholes Road. Continue along Foxholes Road and you will pass by a set of homes and then there is a small break in the residential properties and Marklands House will then be the next property to your right-hand side.
