Nestled on the quiet and peaceful residential retreat of Larkfield Close, discover a dreamy detached family home, with versatile rooms, natural flow and immense style.
Pull up onto the stone driveway, where there is ample parking for four in front of the garage. A manicured lawn to the side is bordered by pretty planting and shrubs. Make your way to the front door and step into the light and airy entrance hall, where richly-toned walnut flooring gleams underfoot, and light is amplified by the modern mirrors on the wall.
From the front door, flow through to the left into the open plan kitchen, dining and living area. Bespoke Shaker-style oak cabinets and drawers are on hand to house all your culinary essentials, whilst the vast oak and granite worktops provide plenty of preparation space for slicing and dicing. Oak coats the central island, within which is inset a gas hob beneath an extractor fan. Other appliances include an AEG oven and fridge with a large Belfast sink adding a traditional element. Enjoy casual family dining in this light, bright and homely space, where a dining table is set beneath a modern glass pendant light.
Contemporary yet durably practical grey flooring extends underfoot, concluding at the set of bespoke oak and glass double doors, harmonising with those seen on the opposite side of the home, leading through to the light-filled family room to the rear.
Sleek, high-quality laminate flooring extends underfoot, gleaming in light flowing in from the roof light above, with a media wall with inset television and electric fire set on the wall to the right; ideal for movie nights. Double doors to the rear garden, where a large Indian stone paved patio extends, perfect for barbecues and summer entertaining.
The flexible layout of living rooms allows ample scope for use. From the family room, across the hall, enter the living room. Glazed double doors draw light through to the living room beyond, where an electric fire sits snug within its limestone surround. A trio of dainty windows suffuse the space in natural light; as the daylight fades the Tala lighting subtly and imperceptibly takes its place. Throughout the home, all the rooms have stylish light-fittings with Tala bulbs. Snuggle up in front of the fire to watch your favourite shows. There is ample room for sofas and a media centre.
Turn right into a bright, broad dining room. Light streams in through a large window, overlooking the verdant front lawn and lavender borders. Well-proportioned and spacious, the living spaces flow naturally, offering a comfortable and relaxed lifestyle. The smart, Gazco fire, set into the wall, offers warmth and style in one.
A home in constant connection with the outdoors, beyond the living room discover the orangery, warmed by underfloor heating and framing views through patio doors over the garden. Above, a roof lantern captures the clear blue of the sky.
Returning to the entrance hall, note the understairs storage for coats, shoes and cleaning essentials, before ascending the carpeted stairs to the landing.
Dressed in light tones, the landing features crisp white walls and fawn carpet underfoot. Stepping up to the right, spy a dedicated area of shelving, slipping through to the second bedroom.
With its pretty duo of arched windows framing verdant views and Velux windows set within the vaulted ceiling, light streams into this large double bedroom. Wooden flooring underfoot reflects the light, this room embraces an expansive and bright atmosphere making it a haven in which to read or work, with a study area to the side.
Refreshment and relaxation await in the family bathroom, another light, bright room courtesy of the rooflight above. Natural stone style tiling adds a spa feel to this soothing room, with bespoke shelving ideal for stacking your fluffy towels. Soak away the aches in bath, fitted with overhead shower. There is also a wash basin, WC and contemporary white towel radiator.
Next door, the master bedroom is large, light and airy, with its own private en-suite featuring walk-in shower and tiled in a similar refreshing manner to the bathroom. Extended to comprise the fifth bedroom, there is a convenient and spacious dressing area to one end, replete with fitted wardrobes, illuminated by LED spotlights at their doors. Dressed in pastel colours and newly carpeted underfoot, windows deliver soft light through for a soothing, peaceful feel.
Nestled to the rear and overlooking the garden is the second of the three guest bedrooms, a double bedroom freshly carpeted with views of the treeline. Next door, overlooking the front garden a fourth double bedroom awaits, dressed in contemporary grey tones, also freshly carpeted. A spacious double, this bedroom could serve as an office for those looking to work from home.
An extension of the home’s good vibes, the gardens outside flow with colour and textured appeal. To the rear, a large patio steps up to the lush green lawn, enclosed by newly installed fencing. Borders are primed with planting for texture and colour.
Two well-placed patios provide pockets of serenity in which to sit back and capture the sun in both the morning and afternoon and in evening through to twilight.
With a substantial garden and four bountiful bedrooms, it is easy to appreciate the strong appeal Larkfield Close will have for families. Schools are a huge factor in the popularity of the Greenmount area, with both Greenmount Primary School and Hollymount within easy walking distance. Various local secondary schools are also close by, including nearby Woodhey. There is also a playground only a short walk from the front door.
Close by, there are many restaurants and pubs all within walking distance and varying in cost and cuisine. Enjoy fine dining Hearth of the Ram in Ramsbottom, who also serve a vegan menu, or a reasonably priced pub meal at the nearby Miller and Carter on the corner.
Walks are in abundance. Head down the Tottington Lines, a nature trail along the disused railway line between Bury and Holcombe Brook; hike up Holcombe Hill, or head through Greenmount Golf Course or over the fields to Hawkshaw.
For days out and a taste of local culture and history, pay a visit to Bury and its Art Gallery or the Fusilier Museum.
Amenities are ample and easily found close by, with a local Co-op, two chemists and cafes in walking distance. Why not visit the local garden centre at Summerseat. A local bus service runs into Bury from where Manchester can be easily reached, with its national and international connections.
With its sought-after location, versatile spaces, modern style and beautiful gardens, No. 28, Larkfield Close is the ultimate retreat; a relaxing home for all the family to enjoy.
