Main Description:

The House:

It is rare that we are able to officially state that a home has countryside access on its doorstep however Windmill Cottage is the exception to this rule. Surrounded by open fields, located in the highly regarded Haigh Country Park and with a lovely view of Haigh windmill; hence the property name of Windmill Cottage.

We understand that the property was built during the late 1940's and is an individual dwelling with private grounds. The accommodation includes two reception rooms plus a versatile kitchen area. To the first floor there are four bedrooms together with a large bathroom and separate shower room. The home has been well cared for during its lengthy ownership, however please note that the property does require general modernisation, hence the asking price, and we would ask that people take this into account prior to booking a viewing. What this home does represent is a relatively unique and potentially once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to purchase a home within this remarkable environment and providing potential to create a home finished to their own choice and specification. Dwellings of such a calibre often generate speedy rates of sale and we would most certainly recommend a speedy viewing to avoid disappointment.

The Area:

Copperas Lane is regarded as a desirable area within a semi-rural location and gives access to Haigh Country Park, a well-known recreation area with open green space, parkland, wooded areas; including a optional dining and beverage facilities, a miniature train ride, playground and rope course, mini-golf and an 18 hole golf course which is extremely popular with families of all ages and dog walkers. Whilst the country retreat allows open views to the front and back there is good access to transport links. Approximately 4.5 miles to Wigan station (linking to London). Between 3 and 4 miles to Manchester train links. Approximately 3 miles to J6 M61 and approximately 5 miles to J27 M6. St. David's junior and infant school is positioned towards the top end of the road and the general area also allows access towards good secondary schools. There are shopping facilities around 1 mile away in the Aspull / Haigh area.
