Prestigious location

Just a short walk from the peace and tranquility of Jumbles Reservoir and within walking distance of shops, cafes and transport links, discover the eclectic delights and rural vistas of Karwood House, tucked back off Chapeltown Road.

Pull through the electric gates and along the driveway, bordered by lawn and colourful planting, where there is ample parking for four cars alongside a detached, single garage.

A handsome, detached and well-balanced 1950s home, Karwood House is ideal for modern family living.

Warm welcome

Make your way through the front door into a handy porch, where a storage cupboard is on hand for coats and shoes, before emerging into the broad and bright entrance hall. A cloakroom on the right is furnished with wash basin and WC, handy for visitors and guests.

Work from home with ease from the study, peacefully situated on the right and tucked away from the main flow of the home and furnished with fitted desks, glass-fronted cabinets and wine rack. A versatile room, it could also serve as a playroom for children.

Directly ahead from the front door, comfort and relaxation await in the sumptuously sized lounge, where light streams in through a large picture window. Cream carpet extends underfoot, harmonising with shimmering striped wallpaper. Warmth and welcome emanate from the attractive fireplace, within which a gas flame fire emits a cosy glow.

Contemporary kitchen

Turning right from this room, enter the contemporary kitchen, a large and well-equipped room running the length of the home. Natural light floods the space through large Velux windows overhead, whilst charcoal and dove grey Shaker-style cabinetry with brass handles offers a profusion of storage. A stunning and contemporary space, the kitchen is furnished with a range of appliances, including a Quooker instant boiling tap.

Tucked off the kitchen is also the utility room, with further storage, plumbing for washer-dryer and a sink, with access out to the garden.

OWNER QUOTE: “It’s a great party house.”

To one end is the sitting area, with gleaming oak flooring underfoot and a trio of pendant lights suspended from above. Borrowed light flows in through double doors leading to the sunny orangery at the rear.

Wine and dine

Light and bright, the orangery is the ultimate all-season room, basking in sunshine and framing verdant views out over the garden to the rolling hills beyond. The garden is easily accessed via bifolding doors, whilst in the winter months the orangery is warmed by underfloor heating. Wave thermostatic heating controls also feature throughout the home.

From the sitting area, a sliding door opens to reveal a cosy snug, with a fresh deep blue feature wall and window overlooking the front. Ideal as a media room, playroom or reading room, this home offers a fantastic combination of social space alongside pockets of peace and privacy.

Rest and relax

Returning to the entrance hall, take the carpeted stairs up to the landing; a light and airy space courtesy of a large window overlooking the front garden.

Peep through the door on the right to discover the third bedroom, the first of four generous doubles, with views over the front garden.

Continuing to the right, discover the sublimely sized second bedroom, furnished with king-size bed along with wardrobes and dressing table and cosily carpeted in grey underfoot. From the window far reaching views extend over the garden and rolling countryside.

Next door bedroom four is a comfortable double, sharing in the impressive countryside views of its neighbour.

The master suite

Finally, arrive at the master suite, dressed in light tones and laid in champagne carpet. Newly fitted wardrobes stretch flush along one wall, providing plenty of storage. Refresh and revive in the stylish ensuite, where warm wood tones permeate in the wash basin vanity unit and storage cabinet.

Returning to the landing, arrive at the family bathroom, furnished with bath containing showerhead attachment, separate shower cubicle, wash basin and WC, with spotlighting overhead.

On the landing further storage is available in the linen closet, with a large loft above, boarded and fitted with lighting.

Entertain alfresco

Outside, the large garden provides plenty of scope for entertaining and relaxation. Enjoy a gin and tonic on one of the sunny patios, both suntraps at different times of the day.

Lush lawn extends back, bordered by established, mature and colourful planting including a magnificent magnolia. In springtime, the garden to the front and rear is awash with colour when the hydrangeas and rhododendrons burst into blossom. A gardener’s paradise, grow your own in the greenhouse.

At the bottom of the garden, by the lower patio, the large summerhouse with built-in barbecue is perfect for parties and entertaining.

OWNER QUOTE: “It’s a fantastic, large and safe garden for children, with plenty of room to play inside also.”

With scope to extend to the rear, there is also the potential to create annex living in the detached garage, which is currently served by a soil pipe.

Out and about

On the cusp of the countryside, leafy walks unfurl on the doorstep. Explore Turton Tower or stretch your legs with walks over the West Pennine Moors, to Entwistle and the Wayoh Reservoir. Jumbles Reservoir is also on your doorstep.

Perfect your swing at Turton Golf Club, where you can find a brand-new restaurant, open to the public, serving up fine food in a great ambience. There is also a selection of pubs within walking distance.

Families are well served by local sporting facilities and entertainment, with various cinemas located within a couple of miles radius. Meanwhile, local schools include Canon Slade, Bolton Grammar and Bury Grammar alongside Turton Sixth Form. There are several local primary schools to choose from.

Pick up all your essentials at the local supermarkets and shops, or head into the Last Drop Village for use of the gym and spa or grab a bite to eat or a drink at the bar – so many fantastic amenities lie within ten minutes of the doorstep.

Commuters are well served by the local motorway network, whilst the nearby train station – a mere five-minute walk away – connects you to Manchester and Clitheroe.
