About this property

  • The house is Grade II Listed and dates back to 17th and 18th century with later additions. Built from white brick to the front and flint and red brick elevations to the back the property is enhanced by attractive sash windows under a slate roof. The accommodation is beautifully presented with light-filled rooms and excellent ceiling heights. There are attractive fireplaces and decorative cornice work.

    A large front door opens into an elegant entrance hall with stone floors and gently curving staircase. From the hall is a side hall with cloakroom to the end and a superb reception room with fireplace, sash window with working shutters. The kitchen is located in the heart of the house with a gas Aga set into a fireplace with granite tops. A further unit with twin bowl sinks with wooden tops and a comprehensive range of Shaker style units, twin electric hob and door out to the garden.

    On the second floor are two further bedrooms with another very well fitted bathroom.

    The walled garden has a seating area and a lower level off the kitchen with a terrace and small lawn and a gate on to the parking area with bin store and garage.

I love Honey Hill - to me it's the perfect location. Just moments from the shops, cafes and restaurants of Bury. The house is fully renovated so nothing needs doing to this lovely town house.
