Main Description:

The House:

A hidden gem; Willowcroft is a truly exceptional property and represents a rare opportunity to acquire such a dwelling. Set in approximately 3 acres of well tended gardens. The main residence offers four double bedrooms together with individual lounge and breath-taking kitchen with glazed living area. There is excellent presentation throughout. The separate annexe is a one bedroom single storey structure including lounge, kitchen, bathroom and the bedroom plus garage. The annexe is also finished to a good modern standard.

The discreet entrance into the property is concealed between two groups of terraced homes and leads to the 'hidden gem'. Once through the gates of Willowcroft the neighbouring properties seem to disappear with the end result being a remarkable level of privacy yet the comfort of having neighbours nearby. Walking through the private gardens you only catch glimpses of these nearby properties together with the open fields that fringe the rear boundary. The accommodation would appeal to a very diverse group, from those seeking multi generation living, perhaps working from home or a buyer seeking a lifestyle property. This home is the perfect example of a dwelling that has so much more to it than meets the eye and is certainly more than just bricks and mortar. We would ask that you contact Ben Washington at our office to discuss the home in more detail.

The Area:

Blackrod is a popular village within the BL6 postcode area and therefore benefits from brilliant access to key transport links such as Blackrod train station which is just over 0.5 miles away and Horwich Parkway which is just over 2 miles away. Junction 6 of the M61 is around 2 miles away. As a result, many locals consider Manchester and the Trafford Centre as an appropriate distance to work, shop and socialise. The Ofsted rated 'Outstanding' Blackrod Country Primary School is just a stone's throw away and it is worth viewing a satellite image of the property to appreciate the abundance of green land immediately surrounding the home. We find that in addition to the transport links, a strong factor attracting people to the general area is the access to this excellent countryside. The neighbouring area of Horwich has great access to a stretch of the West Pennine Moors and Winter Hill, together with large areas owned by the Woodland Trust, whilst the village itself includes access towards Haigh and the neighbouring village of Adlington which includes a stretch of the Leeds-Liverpool canal.

In terms of commercial facilities, the village includes a handful of shops and services, together with doctors and a library, with further opportunities available within Adlington, Chorley and Horwich town centres working 'hand-in-hand' with the out of town retail development, close to the football stadium which is a distance of around 2.5 miles away.
