This impressive detached true bungalow is set privately in one third of an acre formal gardens and impressive views on all four sides. Situated at the head of a private 200 meter track off (ideal for 4-wheel drive cars!) Granville Road on the edge of moorlands and yet with immediate access to surrounding towns, Darwen, Bolton and Manchester. The accommodation briefly comprises: Entrance vestibule, hall with access to a useful attic, lounge with bow window, dining room with easy access to a fully fitted kitchen, large conservatory with under floor heating, master bedroom with bay window and custom made furniture, guest bedroom (currently used as a study) and a three-piece bathroom with shower. Benefits also from hardwood double-glazed windows (all have private outlooks), gas fired central heating and filtered spring water system (no water rates!). The grounds are a 'gardeners delight', with well-stocked mature planting, pond, veg area, 10 meter greenhouse , a large brick built store and WC. In addition there is a larger than average brick built garage with additional parking to the front. In our opinion and with relevant planning permissions, we feel this property offers huge potential for someone to add considerable value by updating and extending, which could even include an additional first floor master suite. 'Viewing is essential for buyers looking to put their own stamp on the property and to fully appreciate the size and location this secluded plot has to offer'
LOCATION From Darwen town centre leave on Borough Road, continue to the park gates and take the sharp right turn into Manor Road. Follow the road around the park side, turn right onto tree-lined Granville Road, take the track on the left hand side until you arrive at the two parking spaces at the bottom of the Tal-y-bryn's garden.
TENURE We are advised by the vendor that the property is Freehold. Any prospective purchaser should seek clarification from their solicitor.
