The Manse, Bolton Road, Edgworth, Bolton 4 bedroom detached house For Sale in Bolton
4 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms.
WELCOME TO THE MANSE...Proudly positioned next to the church and discreetly set behind a perimeter stone wall, this impressive period property has been a part of this charming village since 1826.
Park up on the driveway at the side of the house, just in front of the double garage and pass through the stone gate posts bearing the name...a reminder that this was once the rather impressive home of the clergy but now a beautiful restored family home.
The gardens wrap around the house with lawns for the children to play, a patio area to dine and courtyard for your morning coffee, just enough to give you the outdoor space to relax but not too much to become a chore!
Architectural features adorn the building including an ornate side porch, now a handy log store whilst a couple of steps take you to the front door framed by the stone arch and as you push open the front door and step inside you catch your first glimpse of the grandeur that awaits.
LET US GUIDE YOU AROUND...You arrive in the hallway and are instantly greeted by the classic high ceilings, deep skirting boards and ornate coving. The oak flooring spans the length of this space leading your eye forward to the staircase with its bold striped carpet. The accommodation is centered from the here where you have a choice of different areas in which to entertain, relax and space for the whole family to spread out. First we take the first door to our right and explore the kitchen. The tall windows front and back let the natural light stream into this room which is well equipped for the cooks amongst you with plenty of storage and workspace and you have a breakfast bar built in for less formal dining. The lovely tall ceilings really come in to their own here where the pendant lighting is the perfect choice to illuminate this space. The adjacent seating area is glorious all year round with the warmth of the log burner in those cold winter months and on the sunny mornings enjoy the sun streaming in through the two large windows giving you a wonderful view of both the church and garden. A utility room just off the kitchen is a must have for every family, this one has built in storage, space for your washer and dryer plus a separate loo and access straight out to the side garden and with a tiled floor it's practical for bringing in the muddy boots and paws! Returning to the entrance hall and straight ahead you have the formal dining area, elegant and peaceful, overlooks the front garden and further along the hallway you have the second lounge, both of these rooms have the same oak flooring as the hallway linking the rooms beautifully.
At the end of the hallway a doorway leads down to the two cellar rooms, currently this is ideal dry storage, but as this is such a large space there is so much potential should you wish to convert these rooms...subject to building regs of course. We were thinking perhaps a cinema room or a gym, but the choice is yours!
Head upstairs to discover a lovely light landing area leading to the four double bedrooms you may be spoilt for choice here!
Starting in the master bedroom, the first on your left. Fitted wardrobes allow for plenty of storage space and a pretty ornate fireplace gives a sense of history. This room has a unique layout with a couple of steps down to your large ensuite bathroom. Here you have a fabulous walk in shower encased in glass while in front of the central sash window a decadent free-standing roll top bath invites you in for a relaxing soak.
Next to the master is the second bedroom, another large double and if you chose this room you have the perfect spot in the window to admire the view of the church and maybe you will keep this special spot for quiet contemplation. The original fireplace has been retained in this room adding to the character.
Next door you will find the shower room, light and spacious with a traditional style suite which is perfectly in keeping yet sleek and practical.
Next along is the third bedroom, this large room has two windows so you catch the view of the church here too but if it s too light you have the window shutters to help you get good night s sleep! The fireplace has been retained in this room too. Last but by no means least and facing the master suite you have the fourth of the impressive double bedrooms.
