Byways, Horrocks Fold, Belmont Rd, BL1 7BX
Wishing for a family home in a quaint rural location?
Tucked away off Belmont Road in the picturesque hamlet of cottages in Horrocks Fold discover ‘Byways’, a unique stone cottage offering spacious accommodation in a quiet idyllic setting.
Follow the sweeping lane up to the top to the exclusive cluster of converted stone cottages. Awaiting your discovery nestled behind the rustic stone walled driveway is the wishing well belonging to the property. Make a wish as you pass by and follow the stone paving to the front entrance.
Admire the stained glass as you step through the cottage style door into a large porch. Stash your coats on one of the many coat hooks and follow your nose into the rustic tiled hallway.
Step through the Oak glazed double doors into a spacious living room set about a stone fireplace and cosy log-burning stove. Oak flooring beneath the foot guides you through the second set of double doors through to the open plan kitchen/ diner.
An array of modern country style units in a soft yellow finish adorn the walls perfectly contrasting with the black granite effect worktop that stretches into a handy breakfast bar. A built-in double oven with gas hob and stainless steel extractor hold centre stage. There is also an integrated dishwasher and space for an American style fridge freezer. Slide open the rear patio doors by the dining table and bring the outside-in whist eating your evening meal.
Back in the hall, the property has been re-modelled in recent times to include an office and under stairs w.c just off the hallway, whilst a nifty utility room is located just by the front door.
Take the staircase to the first floor where you will find the modern master bedroom suite with neutral walls and soft cream carpet underfoot offering a great space to relax and enjoy the views. Peep through the door to find the ensuite shower room with grey marble style tiling offering a contemporary classical feel.
At the end of the corridor sits a second double bedroom packed with natural light from the large window providing a wonderful sanctuary to rest your head. Spanning the full length are fitted wardrobes that come complete with matching bedside cabinets and dressing table creating plenty clutter free storage for all your clothes.
Heading back down the landing step into the third double bedroom, it’s neutral decor again providing a perfect backdrop to accentuate with furnishings in a splash any chosen colour.
Before heading back downstairs, pop into the family bathroom. The white four-piece suite perfectly complements the soft beige tiled flooring providing a tranquil haven to bathe in the freestanding bath. For those that prefer to shower, a large contemporary glazed enclosure completes the space.
Step outside the front door and enjoy the south easterly facing garden where a beautifully landscaped paved patio sits by the manicured lawns neatly and privately enclosed by pretty plant lined stone walling.
Beyond the front, across the shared paved lane is a single garage, complete with mezzanine floor, that currently provides a handy gym area. To the side of the bank of garages, ideally placed next to the wishing well is the gravelled driveway belonging to the house with enough space to park two cars.
To the rear of the property is a paved patio area and rockery garden with a row of trees providing a quaint more private shelter. Access the garden through the dining room patio doors or via the shared access garden at the end of the row of cottages.
The property is positioned in a semi-rural location between Bolton and Belmont on the fringe or local countryside making it ideally placed for immediate access to excellent local walks and outdoor activities including horse riding and cycling activities. Well regarded local schools, daily amenities, major transport links, such as the M61 motorway network along with local bus routes are located within close proximity.
Set within this tiny hamlet, Byways has a great sense of community and serenity. Complete with your own wishing well, what more can you desire?
