Horrobin Fold, Horrobin Lane, Turton, Bolton 3 bedroom house Sale Agreed in Bolton
3 bedrooms, 1 bathroom.
A country retreatWith origins dating back to 1760 to the bleach crofting days, the quaint hamlet of Horrobin Fold is quietly situated within a cobbled courtyard which nestles on the edge of The Jumbles Country Park.
Made up of just six properties, No 6 formed part of the Barn and Stables for Horrobin Mills which were demolished circa 1970 to make way for the picturesque reservoir. This is, without doubt, an idyllic, tranquil setting for those seeking a 'country retreat' yet needing to be within very easy reach of daily amenities.
Park up on the cobbled courtyard where you have space for three cars plus one in the garage.
Step insideStep into the wide and welcoming hallway with its rich wooden flooring, hang your coats, and kick off your shoes ready to discover the accommodation within.
One of the dominant features throughout this clever conversion is the abundance of light...just beautiful. The rooms connect effortlessly in this spacious home, where light flows in from every aspect. Let's start in the kitchen. If cooking is your passion then you will love the prep space and storage in this spacious kitchen not to mention your six ring range oven. Fresh and white and illuminated by a flurry of spotlights, this room is both sociable and inclusive, you'll never feel left out of the chatter whilst cooking as the breakfast bar is the perfect place from which to hold court. When you're ready to be seated, follow the flow of light through to the conservatory, so close by yet conveniently separate. This is a fabulous big room to take the largest of tables. Open the doors to the garden when the weather allows, perfect for afternoon al fresco feasts that continue long into the evening with good wine and even better company.
Stepping through to the lounge and sense the cherished ambience that this home exudes. The warm wooden flooring that welcomed you into the hall is mirrored in this room and here you have space for all your favourite tables and armchairs without ever feeling crowded.
Continue through the lounge and you are back to the hallway, ready to follow the turned staircase to emerge on the light and spacious landing.
Here you have a choice of three double bedrooms, which one will you choose? All three offer a soothing sense of peace and solitude. Quiet and so private, the largest room overlooks the lush rear garden and outlying woodland. The second is at the side of the house and overlooks the stables next door but not for long! The third looks out over the courtyard to the front.
The bathroom is gleaming and sparkling. Crisp white wall tiles contrast with bold black floor tiles and glistening mirrored mosaics -the result - a room to restore your senses and add some zest to your morning routine.
Perfect privacyWith nature all around you, peace and privacy are ensured here. Your private rear garden is filled with colourful summertime shrubbery where you have seating areas to relax and unwind. The patio is perfectly placed, ideal for barbecues and summer parties with friends and when you want to explore more simply slip out the gate at the back to fully immerse yourself in the tranquil surroundings and if you're lucky you will catch sight of the deer who often make an appearance here.
You may have noticed the stables just over the wall, you can spy the rusty roof from the front photo...soon to be gone. Plans have been passed to remove the old stables and make way for a new luxury eco-home which will be positioned further back and will be totally unobtrusive. Access will not be through the courtyard.
