Perhaps not the kind of house you would associate with the town, but this 1960s architect-designed four-bedroom property in Bolton, Lancashire has a lot going for it.
For a start (as I know, due to local knowledge), it’s in the good part of town, backing onto a large golf course. Sadly, most of the other distinctive architect designs on this road have been knocked down and replaced with fairly nondescript modern builds. This is being marketed in the same way, so you hope someone else sees the merits of the current design.
That design is an interesting period build with straight lies and a slanted flat roof, with large windows on the rear to show off the extensive gardens. This is quite a sizeable plot, hence the desirability as housebuilding land.
Inside, things haven’t changed a lot, which is a good thing. See past the carpets and dark wood furniture and you’ll find a shell unchanged in decades. Some new decor and sharp interior design would transform this place.
Space-wise, you are looking at four bedrooms, a spacious family lounge with separate dining room, fitted kitchen / breakfast room with utility room, an additional sitting room, cloakroom w/c and a family bathroom. Gardens re to three sides, with a large sweeping driveway and an attached garage making up the outside space.
It’s on the market for £475,000. If we had the money, we would put an offer in ourselves.
