Spacious seven bedroom house in sought after village of Delph with spectacular views. Built in 1855 and extended, the house offers an opportunity to combine country style with sunny spacious rooms. There is gas central heating throughout.
You step into a generous vestibule. Coming off is a large utility room and a broad corridor which divides the semi-open plan space of a dining kitchen and family room on one side and a large lounge on the other.
The l-shaped fitted dining-kitchen is big enough to comfortably house a 10 seater dining table. From here you can see a view of the valley.
The kitchen then opens onto a spacious family room.
All ground floor living rooms have French windows opening onto a large stone flagged patio.
To the right is a massive lounge perfect for entertaining. The room has a cosy feel enhanced by a large woodstove.
On the first floor there is a master suite plus, separated by discreet double doors (with security benefits). A broad feature corridor leads to a master bedroom that goes up to the eaves, with a very large en suite bathroom. Back into the corridor is a second bedroom, with en suite bathroom. This could be a snooze room, dressing room or the whole suite could be converted into a flat at minimum cost.
There is a large family bathroom and an en suite bedroom with the special feature of lighting through the curved top of the old coach entrance. At the other end of the first floor are two large corner double bedrooms used as studies at present.
The second floor, lit by skylights throughout, is made up of a massive bedroom, used as a playroom, and a second guest bedroom.
Next to the house is a two storey barn with external stone staircase feature, suitable for conversion to a two-bedroom house. The buildings are separated by a cobbled yard with other features such as a stone kennel. There are stone outbuildings with development opportunities that need to be seen. Beyond the buildings is a small copse with further opportunities for planting. There are no public paths on our land.
There is a large garden separated from the land by a restored dry stone wall. Wildlife is rich and easily seen.
This is a warm and practical modern family home for those with a large family or a need for granny/graddy accommodation or home office space.
Saddleworth is noted as one of the best places to live in the north west and is a patch of green hills, teashops, canals, streams, industrial architecture, brass bands, live music pubs, excellent schools, state and private, etc. The estimated drive times to the tram and motorway are hardly any longer in rush hour.
