Main Description:

The Home:

'High Bank' is located within a private cul-de-sac within the heart of Heaton just off Markland Hill. The home was constructed during 1879 and it is noteworthy that the property was comprehensively and sympathetically refurbished during 2005/2006 with the vast majority of rooms being taken back to brick and subsequently re-plastered along with the necessary electrical, central heating and joinery work.

The property has also been extended to the rear which has created a large open plan kitchen with living area and this comes in addition to the two formal reception rooms which are located to the front. The kitchen itself is fitted with bespoke units and designed with separate pantry, utility and boot room. The renovation has been completed with great thought and use of relevant period features. Four of the five bedrooms have an en suite facility with the fifth having the use of a separate shower room.

The owners went to unlimited lengths to ensure a total quality refurbishment. All underground drains and sewers were completely renewed back to the adopted manhole in Marshdale Road. An impressive detached garage / workshop which would no doubt suit those who enjoy spending time working on vehicles or alternatively there is great potential to create a home office / teenage den etc.

The Area:

Marshdale Road is a private cul-de-sac nestled within the heart of Heaton and positioned just off Markland Hill. It therefore forms part of one of the most highly regarded areas within the town and the road plays host to just seven detached dwellings. The general area attracts many buyers due to the excellent school catchment areas including Markland Hill County Primary School, whilst Bolton School is just around one mile away and therefore attracts many buyers to the immediate area.

In terms of general amenities there are a number of popular sports and racquet clubs, pubs / restaurants, whilst a small local shop is located on Markland Hill and is a great asset to the areal. The excellent transport links are a particularly important feature for the town. Junction 6 M61 is just 3 miles away whilst Lostock train station is just around 1.5 miles away. Both these links mean residents can gain access towards Manchester which may people consider to be a suitable distance to work, shop and socialise.



From Chorley New Road proceed up Markland Hill taking the turning on the right into Marshdale Road where the subject property will be on your left.
