Set behind an electronic farmhouse gate at the end of a private tarmac surfaced lane, Winstanley House is a distinctive stone-built residence that is hard to find but certainly worth the effort. In recent years it has undergone comprehensive and sensitive modernisation and improvement to provide a very beautiful and desirable character filled family home. The accommodation perfectly blends the best of old and new and is both tasteful and well suited for modern living with a fabulous reception hallway with vaulted ceiling and balcony landing, 2 excellent reception rooms (one with an eye-catching focal fireplace and the other with eye-catching views through bifold doors), a magnificent open plan family kitchen with dining area and snug incorporating bespoke hand-crafted units, Aga cooker, central island, exposed feature brick wall and wood burner. An elegant Orangery overlooks the gardens, and a spacious study and utility room completes the accommodation downstairs whilst upstairs there are 5 double bedrooms, 2 en-suites & a luxury family bathroom.

The gardens and grounds are all immaculately maintained with a long sweeping driveway leading to a gravelled courtyard to the front with access to a large integral double garage. Whilst to the rear and side there are extensive lawned garden areas leading onto fenced and enclosed paddocks to east and south elevations. The plot also includes some woodland. A landscaped Indian stone terrace that runs along the rear of the property links both reception rooms and the Orangery providing stunning outside living space that enjoys the amazing south facing views.

The house despite enjoying a completely serene location has plenty of amenities within walking distance including Haigh Woodland Park with its Kitchen Courtyard full of boutique food and drink stores, two golf courses, and St David's primary school and a bus stop to one of the North West’s leading independent day schools in Bolton ensuring outstanding educational facilities for children are also readily available.
