Property Location

Relishing rural views, this turnkey ready four bedroom detached home in Brandlesholme, Bury has been renovated to the very highest of standards. Not far from the verdant greens of Greenmount, Tottington’s woodland trails and just over the river from Burrs Country Park, discover the contemporary comforts of Oakham Close.


Peaceful setting

Tucked away at the end of a peaceful former cul-de-sac, pull up on the smoothly tarmacked driveway where off road parking is available for two cars, before taking in the immediate signs of the renovation undergone at Oakham Close, with its anthracite grey windows and modern front door with side glazing.

Inside, pale wood-effect Karndean flooring in an attractive herringbone pattern creates a spacious and light feel in the entrance hall, as a glazed door ahead provides a passing view of the rear garden. Glass balustrades to the black staircase amplify the airy and bright feel of this home.


Seamless flow

On the immediate right, open the elegant oak door with modern black handle (featured throughout) to the cosy snug, which could make an ideal children’s play area, offering views out to the front of the home. Light and bright, the herringbone floor continues through here from the entrance hallway. Built-in cabinetry with harmonising black handles conceals the consumer unit, also providing an attractive shelf for a vase of flowers or ornaments.

Back in the entrance hallway, beneath the handsome staircase, the space has been cleverly maximised to offer a downstairs WC with wash basin, both wall-mounted and backed in modern white metro tiling with a large, fitted mirror above, amplifying the light. There is also a handy heated towel radiator.


Feast your eyes

Turning left from the front door, enter the capacious living room, flooded with light courtesy of a wide window with deep sill to the front. Herringbone flooring continues through from the hallway for a flowing, uniform feel, matched by off-white walls creating a blank canvas of decorative opportunity. Extra high skirtings are one of many thoughtful touches indicative of the high-quality finish of this home.

Sliding anthracite aluminium doors deliver so much light indoors, offering instant access to the broad, porcelain tiled patio to the rear, whilst framing verdant views out over the neatly mown lawn, stream and fields beyond.


Entertaining haven

Opening up to the right to offer seamless, open-plan living, is the dining-kitchen, where the stylish ‘Japandi’ kitchen features acoustic panelling, slate-grey quartz worktops, black Blanco sink and a range of integrated appliances including dishwasher, hob, oven and microwave oven, fridge and freezer. Storage is plentiful, with access through to a utility room housing the boiler, and with space for a washer and dryer.

Returning to the entrance hallway, take the champagne carpeted stairs up to the landing, continuing directly ahead to arrive at the family bathroom. Neutrally sandy tiles to the walls and floor create a crisp finish in this refreshing bathroom, furnished with walk-in shower, centrally filling bath with retractable showerhead attachment, vanity unit wash basin, heated towel radiator and WC. Step out of the shower onto the warm tiles, courtesy of underfloor heating.


Rest and revive

Back on the landing, turn right to reach bedroom three, where oatmeal coloured carpet extends underfoot and peaceful views greet you from the window, overlooking the rear garden, stream and fields beyond.

Overlooking the quiet close to the front is bedroom two, another similarly sized double bedroom, freshly painted and carpeted underfoot.

Also located on the landing is a shelved storage cupboard, ideal for toiletries and linen, automatically illuminated via sensor lighting. A loft hatch also leads to an attic above.

With verdant views out over the rear garden, the master bedroom occupies prime position to the rear of the landing. A bountifully sized bedroom with a fantastic outlook, watch from the window for deer roaming the woods and geese exploring the field beyond the stream. Carpeted and dressed in a delicate shade of eggshell white, this large bedroom also features a walk-in wardrobe.

Refresh and revive in the elegant ensuite, tiled in shades of grey to the floor and walls, and furnished with vanity unit wash basin with ample storage. Inspired by 19th Century ironmonger Francis Henry Crittall’s iconic window of the same design, there also features a black and glass Crittall shower enclosure with rainfall head and handheld attachment also in black. There is also a WC and heated towel radiator.

Finally, facing the front of the home is a fourth double bedroom, similar in size to bedrooms two and three, carpeted, serene and completing the collection of comfortable bedrooms at Oakham Close.


Safe and secure garden

With gated access along the sides, the garden at Oakham Close is enclosed to the front.

Recline and unwind on your sun lounger on the porcelain tiled patio with a drink in hand on lazy summer days, or dine alfresco with a family barbecue. Beyond the patio is an expanse of lawn, whilst rope fencing preserves the view out over the gently flowing stream and across the field beyond, where deer and geese roam.


On your doorstep

Soak up the perks of the locale. Enjoying a rural setting, there are walks aplenty on the doorstep, with Burrs Country Park a little over ten minutes’ walk away. Set upon 36 hectares of scenic countryside, get back to nature with a stroll around the wetland, woodland and open pastures.
