Nestled among acres of sprawling countryside on the edge of one of Greater Manchester’s finest market towns is this seven-bedroom mansion that could be yours.

If you’ve got £1.35 million to fork out, that is.

Situated on a private road with its own gated entrance, and currently on the market with the Bury-based branch of local estate agency chain Miller Metcalfe, Bank Lane Farm is described as being an “exceptional detached residence” in the unspoiled Victorian mill town of Ramsbottom that extends to approximately 10,000 sq ft, and sits proudly on an elevated plot of five acres with panoramic views of rolling green hills.

Maintained to the highest of standards throughout, and looking to be ideal for growing families of all sizes, the light and spacious interiors of the this house combine high-quality contemporary design with original features to retain plenty of character and charm.

An expansive lounge area, an open plan dining room and sitting room, a split level kitchen with a breakfast area, utility, and study, and a master bedroom with a feature grand fireplace and a luxurious en-suite facilities and dressing room, are just some of the highlights of the home.

Of course, the property also boasts a games room, a gym, and what is by far the stand-out feature, an indoor heated swimming pool.

Planning permission has previously been granted for further en-suites, a cinema room, a walk-in wardrobe, and a large first-floor terraced balcony – with the estate agents saying plans are available for on request.

The location of the property is also said to be “absolutely superb”, as not only are the grounds not overlooked, but the impressive house sits within beautifully-maintained gardens and lawns and there’s also a separate three-acre greenbelt field too, which could be adapted for a variety of uses.

Ramsbottom is one of the most sought-after residential areas of the region, and is known and loved for being home to some of the North’s best cafes, bars and restaurants, as well as famous landmarks such as Peel Tower on Holcombe Hill.

Despite its semi-rural setting in the West Pennine Moors, it’s still just a short distance from all the amenities central Bury has to offer, and is not far from a range of excellent schooling options – including the renowned Bury Grammar School.

The property is also conveniently-located close to a range of transport links for commuting, including rail links, Metrolink lines in Bury and Radcliffe, and motorways connections for journeys into Manchester city centre, Liverpool, the Midlands, and beyond.

If all of this doesn’t sound impressive enough as it is, the property even offers further development potential through the included barn – which forms part of the main property and is situated between the games room and swimming pool – and there is also a two-bedroom bungalow annexe with lounge, dining kitchen, and shower room too.

Externally, the property’s grounds are split into different areas – including a formal Indian stone patio, gardens with lawns, and well stocked matured borders.

It goes without saying, but viewing is recommended to fully-appreciate all this house has to offer.
