Main Description:

The Home:

A 'hidden gem', Wenderholme Lodge is a lovely four bedroom detached home that was originally constructed during 1974 and sits in a plot approaching 0.7 of an acre (including its drive). The home is pleasantly secluded and the road plays host to a number of impressive high value dwellings, the most recent neighbouring home having sold during 2018 at £1.45 million. We feel therefore that there is an opportunity for an individual to purchase Wenderholme Lodge with a view of re-development into one large dwelling and the plot size certainly supports this. It may also be possible for whole scale redevelopment of the land to create multiple smaller homes (both subject to the usual consents).

The current home is around 1884 square feet and a local architect has provided guidance suggesting that a home in excess of 6000 square feet could well be possible.

The Area:

A prestigious road within the heart of Heaton (close to the tennis club) which is regarded as one of the most high calibre parts of this popular residential area. There are several large detached dwellings within the immediate area that have sold for above the £1m barrier and hopefully this underlines the quality of the environment. The local schools are a consistently strong feature of the postcode and include Markland Hill County Primary School, whilst the area in general has good access to Bolton School. Heaton also includes a number of popular pubs / restaurants and leisure facilities. Junction 5 M61 is just over 2.5 miles away whilst Lostock train station which is on the mainline to Manchester is under 1.5 miles away. Many locals consider Manchester as an appropriate distance to work, shop and socialise and for those who enjoy spending time outdoors the area has access to Doffcocker Nature Reserve which is ideal for dog walking, running etc.



From Chorley New Road, proceed up the hill of Victoria Road and take the second right (on the bend) and turn into to continuation of Victoria Road where the private entrance into will be on your right hand side (practically opposite Towncroft Lane).
