Main Description:

The House:

A beautiful and large family home located in the sought after area of Foxholes Road and offering superb access to the surrounding countryside. The property sits to the front of a substantial plot which includes an open lawn, free flowing stream with waterfall and pond plus wooded areas. We feel that the property offers much larger accommodation than first meets the eye.

The internal layout offers immense versatility and can easily function with 6 bedrooms although more recently the layout has been utilised as four bedrooms plus a large games room and separate study.

The large master suite is equipped with a fitted dressing room and substantial en-suite. The games room could easily be split into separate bedrooms if desired but equally provides flexibility to the living space. In summary, all the rooms are of generous proportions.

The Area:

Foxholes Road is one of the town's most prestigious addresses. The lovely semi rural setting allows the property to enjoy easy access to the surrounding countryside which is literally on the door step whilst important amenities and transport links are conveniently positioned.

Horwich itself offers a choice of nurseries and there are both primary and secondary schools . Please note that that Bolton School is around is around 4 .5 miles away and the bus route for the school passes the end of the road. (on Chorley Old Road).

In terms of commercial amenities Horwich centre itself is under 1 mile away. The popular centre includes free parking and a classic range of shops, such as butchers, bakers, green grocers, some small supermarkets and an abundance of cafes and restaurants. Larger retail outlets are positioned at the Middlebrook retail complex close to the motorway link which is just under three miles away. The closest train stations which connect to Manchester are between 2 and 3 miles.

Finally and as mentioned previously the surrounding countryside is a very strong feature. Paths lead immediately from the road into the hills which include a stretch of the West Pennine Moors. This area links to The Smithills Estate, an area that has recently been acquired by The Woodland Trust.
