Main Description:

The House:

'Cream Cottage' was originally two cottages dating back to the 1800's as a working house treating cloth that was bleached and creamed by workers. Now converted into one impressive home, with original features such as; exposed stone walls, original fireplaces, feature beams and original flooring. The property has magnificent views overlooking countryside and beyond. An of-road parking area can be created.

To the ground floor the property comprises of; Entrance porch, lounge with fireplace, study/bedroom, utility room and WC. To the middle floor there is a second and third reception room with original flooring and exposed beams leading to a fantastic open plan split level kitchen/diner with access onto the rear garden. To the first floor there is a master bedroom with windows to the front and rear which offer stunning views, two further double bedrooms and a family bathroom. There are three lofts in which two are usable. Externally there is a rear enclosed patio area with two sheds and log store, a beautiful lawned area to the side alongside another patio area which is perfect for outside entertaining and dining and enjoying the summer months. Internal viewing is highly recommended to fully appreciate.

The Area:

'Cream Cottage' is located on Old Lane, just off Bottom o'th Moor, which is a high calibre address around a mile and a half from Horwich town centre and around two and a half miles from junction 6 of the M61 and Horwich Parkway train station. This station is on the mainline to Manchester and the airport. The area manages to strike a lovely balance of these convenient amenities with superb access to the surrounding countryside and therefore the location tends to attract people who enjoy spending time outdoors. There are footpaths leading immediately from the road with access towards High Rid reservoir, whilst the nearby Georges Lane is one of the main routes towards Rivington Pike and its associated moorland. Many locals consider Manchester and the Trafford Centre an appropriate distance to shop and socialise and is therefore another great attribute to the area.
