Property Location

Within easy reach of local schools and with easy access into the thriving town of Bury and the bars, restaurants and bistros of popular Ramsbottom, discover a 1930s home reimagined for modern living, at Longsight Road.

Pull off the road and onto the driveway, where there is ample parking along the lengthy paved driveway, leading to a large, detached garage.

With tall, established conifers along the border with the neighbouring semi, the privacy of No. 85 is instantly apparent. Make your way along the driveway, through the gate and enter through the contemporary charcoal door, emerging into the light, bright and open-plan dining area.

Immediately, views out to the garden greet you to the right, whilst light flows in through multiple windows. Peaceful and pleasant, walnut-toned laminate floor extends underfoot in contrast to the crisp, minimal white of the walls. Scandi-style furnishings, including a dining table and freestanding lamp, evoke a modern, on trend spartan vibe. Beneath the white painted staircase, an office area has been established by the current owners.

Sneak a peek through the door to the rear, opening to reveal a downstairs WC and wash basin, with marbled black LVT flooring.

Opening up off the dining room is the kitchen, furnished with an array of integrated appliances including Neff gas hob with extractor hood, oven, dishwasher and recently fitted fridge-freezer. Tucked off the kitchen is a small utility space, where there is plumbing for a washing machine and the new boiler that was fitted in April 2022 is housed. Tiled to the walls with plenty of hanging space for coats, this area is ideal for laundry and boots, with access out from the kitchen to the garden at the rear.

Retaining its 1930s heritage, open the traditional door on the left of the dining room through to the lounge, where a broad, lattice leaded bay window frames views over the front; fitted with blinds for privacy. Carpeted and cosy, spotlights are inset within the ceiling, with the wall mounted television set within the chimney breast.

From the dining room, make your way up the carpeted stairs to the landing, glancing up to spy a hatch leading to the loft above.

Turning right, step onto the original wooden floor of the main bedroom. Soothing décor includes crisp whites and a feature wall of muted duck egg blue. Fitted wardrobes provide easy storage for all your clothes and accessories. Cosy, minimal and inviting. Through the window take a glimpses of Peel Tower.

Cross the landing to seek refreshment in the family bathroom, where white walls and wooden flooring reaffirm the Scandi-vibes of the dining room. A chrome heated towel radiator keeps your towels warm, with a wash basin, WC and bath with overhead shower.

From the bathroom make your way into the second bedroom, a comfortable double bedroom, note the clever use of the over stairs storage to create a walk-in homework desk with shelving above.

Patio doors open from the kitchen to a neat terrace, with space for a bistro table and chairs. Beyond the terrace, step up to the neatly mown lawn, with a picnic table at the rear for alfresco dining. A delightful space in which to sit and contemplate, this privacy garden is sunny, south facing and ideal for those with small children.
