Fabulous family living, in the most tranquil of locations…welcome to Number 27, Silver Birch Close.
Travelling north up Fall Birch Road, follow the dry stone wall that borders Lostock Golf Course, until you arrive at the beautiful estate of Silver Birch Close.
Privately nestled at the end of a trio of new-build, three-storey townhouses, pull up at Number 27, where two parking spaces are allocated directly in front of the house. Ahead, the pretty powder blue front door beckons.
Freshen up in the handy cloakroom with WC and wash basin to the left, as light fills the entrance hallway, flowing in through the glazed French doors of the living room, directly ahead.
For now, follow the tiled floor of the entrance hallway through to the kitchen on the right.
Crisp white cupboard units harmonise with contemporary grey metro splashback tiles and a deep blue feature wall, all illuminated by a feature row of urban chic filament bulbs in a modern mesh shade suspended from the ceiling.
A new, stylish, sink and tap unit are inset into the multi-tonal wood-effect worktops, showcasing both functionality and flair.
Cook up a feast for the family in the Electrolux double oven with gas hob. Integrated appliances also include a dishwasher and new fridge-freezer with ice maker and water dispenser.
Turning right out of the kitchen, allow the light to draw you through into the lounge-diner at the end of the hallway.
Light suffuses this dining-sitting space from the wide French doors, opening out to the upper patio of the south facing garden and framing views of the striking oak trees opposite.
The ideal size for enjoying family time, snuggle up on the sofa for movie night with the candles lit or relax and read a book. Sit down to an evening meal at the dining table, looking out at the nature displayed through the wealth of windows. In winter, admire the purple and red sunsets with views stretching as far as the Welsh mountains. Storage is available too, in the cupboard beneath the stairs.
In the summer months, leave the French doors open, blurring the boundaries between the outdoors and in. Keep your eyes peeled for the resident sparrowhawk on his lunchtime hunt and listen out for the gentle hooting of owls in the oak tree at the bottom of the garden as evening falls.
Returning to the entrance hallway, take the stairs up to the first floor. To the rear, the large, south-facing second bedroom overlooks the garden, capturing the watercolour sunset skies at the close of day.
Decorated in soothing greys and whites and a duck egg feature wall, light pours in from a duet of windows, creating a peaceful mood. Plenty of space for wardrobes and drawers in here.
To the front of the house, a third bedroom, currently utilised as a study is also bathed in light from two windows to the front and side. Spacious and serenely styled in grey and white, this carpeted room looks out toward the friendly neighbourhood of Silver Birch close.
Recently renovated, the family bathroom features stunning blue tiling for a truly nautical feel. The wall mounted wash basin comes replete with storage beneath, while the large bath is fitted with a handheld shower attachment.
Continue up to the second floor, where the master suite awaits…
Sloped ceilings create a cosy vibe in this carpeted, peaceful, private master bedroom, located at the apex of the house. Storage is second to none, with walk in access to the eaves alongside a built-in wardrobe.
Experience luxury and relaxation in the wet room-style ensuite, fitted with waterfall shower with handheld attachment and colour changing lights. Underfloor heating ensures comfort throughout your bathing experience, with digital setting controls and remote, adjustable mood lighting.
With two patios to choose from, capture the views and sunlight at different times of the day from different spaces. Easy maintenance Astroturf is ideal for children or pets.
A purpose-built vegetable patch is the perfect place in which to upcycle the autumn leaf fall from the beautiful oak trees at the bottom of the garden.
Also at the bottom of the garden is a large garden shed (and much-cherished ‘man cave’). The furthest oak tree, the last to shed its leaves in the autumn, deposits its acorns on top of the shed, transforming it into a wildlife feeder. Observe nature in action from the upper patio with a refreshing drink in hand.
In the summer months, capture the best of the sun’s warmth from the lower patio, relaxing with a book and a cold drink.
Out and about
For families keen on a sense of community, Number 27 is perfectly placed in a friendly neighbourhood, close to well-reputed schools such as Claypool Primary School and the Bolton School.
Turn left, out of the end of the road onto Old Hall Lane, and follow its historic cobbles all the way through to Old Kiln Lane for views of High Rid Reservoir, local coarse fishery and abundance of wildlife – if you’re lucky you might spot the local roe deer grazing in the evening.
For those looking to stretch their legs further, continue on to Rivington Pike for fantastic views of the area.
Walks abound from the doorstep. Turning left out of the road and then left again at the farmhouse, follow the road past the pond and just past the stone car park; on the right there is a public footpath taking you up the hill onto Chorley Old Road. Be sure to turn around and look back for panoramas of Manchester as far as Hyde and Fiddlers Ferry Power Station.
Local deer, foxes and badgers can be seen late at night or early in the mornings, a truly spectacular sight. Continue on this route to Chorley Old Road to discover the historic Blundell Arms pub, renowned for its hot chocolate fudge cake, fine pub dining and refreshments.
Match day drinkers and Bolton FC fans can enjoy a more urban pub environment at the Beehive, while there are a number of popular contemporary restaurants such as Fanny’s (The Victoria Inn) within a five-minute drive.
A host of amenities including Post Office and Tesco Extra are also within a ten-minute walk.
For those looking to start a family, or relocate to be closer to nature, Number 27, Silver Birch Close is a stylishly and tastefully finished family home, with room to grow…indoors and out!
