CROSS Hall House is a beautifully restored former farmhouse for the neighbouring Cross Hall Farm in Walmersley.

The refurbishment programme was completed about 10 years ago.

The current owners moved in eight years ago and have significantly improved the property in line with current fashions.

The building was originally constructed in the late Victorian era and remained the farmhouse until the turn of the Millennium, every inch of the fabric of the property was stripped back and replaced where necessary and the architects worked hard to incorporate as much of the available space to create a family home with accommodation over three floors.

Set in well-established gardens, it is bounded to the front by a substantial stone wall incorporating a special feature ­— the property's own red post box.

Accessed directly from Mather Road, the property is on the fringe of open countryside and yet Bury town centre is easily within a five-minute drive and Junction 1 of the M66 is a few minutes up the road.

There is gas central heating and double glazing.

The accommodation briefly comprises entrance hall, utility room providing access to the large double garage, dining room, guest cloakroom, farmhouse kitchen and lounge.

Upstairs, the first floor landing has bedrooms one and two, both with palatial en-suites.

The second-floor landing leads to a study area and storage with access to both bedrooms three and four, again with en-suites.

To the outside there are well-established gardens and patio areas with large driveway accessed via remotely operated entrance gates.
