A stunning house has come up for sale in Greater Manchester that breaks the mould of the ‘typical terraced property‘, estate agents say. The end terrace in Ramsbottom, Bury might look pretty normal from the outside, but inside it boasts a luxury interior and hides beautiful countryside views.
The impressive Victorian home, which has been fully refurbished, is set over four floors with 2,000 square foot of living space. It has three large reception rooms, four bedrooms and three bathrooms as well as a southeast-facing garden.
The £625,000 home has been chosen as our Property of the Week. Each week our MEN property journalist picks out a different home that has come up for grabs across our region, whether that be for its standout interior, affordable price or desirable location.
Described by estate agents as ‘ready and waiting’, the home is currently in a ‘blank canvas’ condition ready for its new owners to make it their own. It has been designed with modern fixtures and fittings, with a neutral interior theme running throughout, as well as retaining some of the original Victorian features.
The living space starts on the ground floor, with the first room being a bright and spacious lounge kitted out with LED spotlights, a central pendant and twin front-facing sash windows. It has been fitted with a plush carpet whilst the mouldings and a wooden mantle above the fireplace have been restored to give the space some original charm and character.
The ground floor also hosts a sleek navy kitchen to the rear, complete with an Italian marble-topped island bar and gold fixtures. The space is flooded with light from the French doors that lead out onto a raised terrace. The kitchen has a full suite of integrated appliances such as an electric hob, a double oven and microwave with warming drawer, a wine fridge, a concealed fridge-freezer, dishwasher, and washing machine.
Next to the kitchen is a spacious dining area, which also boasts French doors to the terrace and an attractive roof lantern skylight ceiling. The basement on the lower ground level has been cleverly converted to provide more living space with what could be an ideal home cinema room, complete with contemporary decor and large ceiling beams. There is also the first bedroom at this level with an en-suite bathroom.
Upstairs are two spacious double bedrooms featuring trendy panelling and large windows that draw in plenty of natural light. Across the landing is a spot-lit family bathroom with a huge walk-in rainfall shower and bath, complimented by dark matt black fixtures and detailing to contrast with spotless white design.
Up on the top floor is the largest bedroom, the master suite, which has serene views of the leafy landscape through two big windows. There’s in-built storage on the landing as well as a stunning marble-tiled en-suite, with a Velux window showing off sky views above the double-ended bath.
Outside there is a raised terrace and south-east facing garden to the rear with outdoor lights and in-built seating that create the perfect atmosphere for evening parties, as well as extensive parking for multiple cars. Opposite these area lies another expansive garden ‘brimming with potential’, says the estate agents, with the space ideal for a home office or studio.
The home is nestled on River Irwell in the West Pennine Moors, a desirable location near to the market town of Ramsbottom. It boasts popular shops, boutiques, restaurants and bars, including an award-winning brewery, while Victorian architecture and the East Lancashire Railway offer a glimpse into its industrial past. Its rural setting also means there are lovely walks such as Holcombe Hill and stunning scenery across to Peel Tower on your doorstep.
For house-hunters with young children, the home is ideally located just minutes away from Ofsted-rated ‘Good’ schools including Hazlehurst Community Primary School, St Andrew’s Church of England Primary School and Woodhey Secondary in Holcombe Brook all within less than half a mile away. You’ll also find grammar schools in nearby Rossendale and Bury.
Estate agents Burton-James who are marketing the home say: “Completely re-designed by Home Design and Build – reputable local builders renowned for their exceptional finishes – this high-spec four-storey home in the heart of Ramsbottom breaks the mould of the typical terraced property.
“Inside, the living space extends from an incredible converted basement level to two floors of immaculate receptions, luxurious bedrooms and bathrooms before ending on the top-floor master suite.”
