Main Description:

The House:

A relatively rare opportunity to acquire an extended true bungalow positioned within a generous corner plot and with the added benefit of two driveways and two garages.

The corner plot may offer potential for further development and it is also worthy of note that the property benefits from a large loft area which may also offer scope for further conversion to first floor level. That said, true bungalows are a scarce commodity and this particular home has been extended. The current layout includes three reception areas and two bedrooms and offers potential for general extension of the ground floor if increased accommodation is required.

The lounge is positioned to the front and includes a large picture window which overlooks the front garden. The open plan kitchen and dining area leads to a garden room at the rear. The master bedroom includes an en suite facility and the second bedroom is served by the main bathroom.

The home has been well cared for but we feel an intending purchaser would look to update items such as the kitchen, bathroom and décor. Should the property be retained as a true bungalow the corner plot provides excellent garden space and the flexibility of the dual driveway and two separate garages is a particularly rare characteristic.

The Area:

Sharples is a consistently popular location and is positioned in an area where there is excellent access to the countryside towards the North and West side of Bolton. There are a good number of shops and services located along the nearby Blackburn Road and Astley bridge. As such this combination of factors attracts many people to settle in the area for long durations. The nearby village of Belmont also plays host to a couple of popular pubs/restaurants and there is a long established convenience store 'The Top Shop' within close proximity.
