Bedrooms: 4
The House:

A stunning barn conversion finished to extremely high standard both inside and out. The conversion took place in just 2015 and so the dwelling offers a great combination of the character associated with barn conversions and the benefit of modern construction methods and installation qualities.

Some particularly outstanding features are the impressive exposed beams and roof structure seen throughout the first floor, the open plan kitchen and living area to the rear which includes a high vaulted ceiling and a superb master suite including dressing room. The thoughtful finish includes, quality materials, neutral décor to allow the character to shine though and underfloor heating to the ground floor.

The brilliant far-reaching views to the front provide a sense of space and the semi rural location simultaneously allows access into the countryside which is literally on the doorstep yet the convenience of transport links. Lostock train station is just over two miles away and links to Manchester and the airport whilst junction 6 of the M61 is just over 3 miles away.

The ground floor includes a particularly versatile layout, the all important open plan kitchen and living area is a generous space whilst there is also an individual reception room to the front which includes feature stone fireplace and log burner. There is a third reception room which could function as a separate study or ground floor bedroom. In addition there is an excellent separate utility, ground floor WC and storeroom.

The first floor was originally designed as four bedrooms but has since be been reconfigured to provide a dressing room to the master suite. Both the en suite and main bathroom include underfloor heating are finish to an excellent specification.

In summary, this barn conversion offers a real sense of quality and the individuality will no doubt suit those discerning buyers looking for something a little different.

The Area:

Due to the location, dwellings of this style are often seen as a 'forever home' type, are seldom placed into the open market and therefore this can be seen a rare opportunity to acquire such a property.

As mentioned above, the location strikes a superb balance of rural surroundings yet handy transport links and we feel this characteristic will become increasingly important as the inner city and inner town locations become more densely populated. Lostock train station is just over two miles away and links to Manchester and the airport whilst junction 6 of the M61 is just over 3 miles away.

Footpaths lead immediately from the home and proved access to a great network of paths and bridleways. Areas such as Rivington Pike, Winter Hill and its associated moorland and High Rid reservoir are just some of pleasant spaces which are easily accessed. The large Smithills Estate has recently been acquired by the Woodland Trust and is within close proximity. Those who enjoy spending time outdoors will be spoiled for choice with the various landscapes on offer.

From a commercial perspective, Manchester and the Trafford centre can be accessed by the aforementioned transport links and more close to home there is access into Horwich town centre. The centre plays host to a vast array of mainly independently owned shops and services. This works hand in hand with a larger out of town style retain development. These facilities are which are around 2 miles and 3 miles respectively.
