Back Bradshaw Road, Bradshaw, Bolton, BL2 3ES
Tucked behind the former bleach worker houses off Bradshaw Road in the historical hamlet of Bradshaw Chapel sits the aptly named ‘Flax Mill’, a converted former mill now providing a spacious stone semi-detached three storey home.
Drive down the cobble stones of Back Bradshaw road and immediately notice the prominent stone arched stained glass window that draws you in. Park up here, or choose to park on the two car flagged driveway or garage which sits alongside next door.
Shake off your brolley and step into the handy porch before entering the warm and inviting reception room that features the floral stained glass. Currently used as an open plan sitting and dining room this versatile space unravels into a study area ideal for those that work from home.
Move on through to the kitchen where the worktop evolves into a breakfast bar area perfect for a quick breakfast before you head out for the day. Centred around the ‘Range’ style oven are cream ‘Shaker’ style units which adorn the walls. Views out over the rear garden are framed in the large window over the sink.
Just off the kitchen you will find a utility room with sink and drainer, space for washer, dryer and a freestanding fridge/ freezer. Step through the door into the pretty and private courtyard garden.
Back in the hallway, there is plenty room here to hand your coats or stash away those shoes in the under-stair cupboard. A handy downstairs W.C awaits before ascending the softly carpeted staircase to the first floor.
Step through to your right and you are immediately greeted with a spacious and cosy living room with feature patterned wallcoverings in golden yellows reflecting the light flooding from the windows either side of the room. Curl up in front of the ornate fire and keep cosy on a winters evening.
Perfectly located next door you will find the large master bedroom suite, a separate haven or ideal guest suite away from the rest of the family! A bank of fitted wardrobes span the full elevation, gently flowing into a dressing area complete with matching dressing table, drawers and shelving above. Take a peek into the ensuite bathroom with w.c, pedestal sink and bath with shower above complemented by the subtle green tiling.
Returning to the u-shaped staircase, follow the stained timber handrail to the second floor where the light and airy landing has enough space to house a useful storage cupboard. Pass the window and turn the corner to find Bedroom two, a generous double bedroom decorated in soft greys to complement the Walnut laminate flooring. White fitted wardrobes with matching dressing table finish the room.
The third bedroom, a mirror image of similar proportions again offering fitted wardrobes, dressing table and shelving area comes with neutral beige toned walls and soft cream carpeting. Also on this floor, lies the fourth double bedroom with grey feature wall contrasting with the stark white providing a airy space saturated with light from the skylight window.
A large four-piece bathroom completes the second floor with a newly fitted double shower with contemporary white tiling all complementing the Travertine stone coloured tiling around the corner bath, w.c and pedestal sink.
Step outside to the rear of the property into the courtyard garden where the good sized paved patio with built-in stone walled planters creates a peaceful place to enjoy a family barbeque in those summer months. Or perhaps choose to enjoy your morning coffee by the quaint seating area next to the arched window at the front of the property.
Set within the local Bradshaw Conservation Area, the property is ideally placed close to Harwood Village with it’s excellent amenities, highly regarded primary and secondary schools and Bromley Cross Train Station just a short walk away. The idyllic location is also within a stones throw of the Kingfisher Trail leading to Bradshaw Hall Fisheries, Bradshaw Tennis and Cricket Club and the Jumbles Country Park.
