Prepare to fall in love! They don't build them like this anymore.

'Tudor Lodge', found in one of Thornham's most sought-after locations, is a most attractive, individual, detached house and a beautiful example of 1950s architecture. Whilst the property would benefit from updating, it has bags of character and excellent potential. This is perhaps a once in a generation opportunity to acquire such a prestige character property in this highly regarded cul-de-sac - home to some of the area's most beautiful properties.

Personal inspection of the property is essential and will reveal original features at every turn. Approaching the property you are drawn to the Apex with its mock Tudor beams and the distinctive Herringbone pattern brickwork which was a popular decorative feature of Tudor style homes. Another indicator of Tudor style is the tall chimney with the feature detailed brickwork, prominently featured on the side of the house. Step inside this charming characterful home and be amazed at the original Oak doors, staircase and panelling in the hall, stairs and the lounge, which is also home to a feature stone fireplace. The owners were told that the Oak panelling and stone fireplace came from an old hall in Cheshire.

Of course future owners may wish to completely remodel the property and the external space to the rear provides plenty of space for an extension - subject to the usual consents. The large garage - almost 10 metres in length - is also ripe for conversion.

The house stands in a large plot with driveway to the front and a huge, established garden to the rear with patios, generous lawned areas, mature shrubs and brick summerhouse (or perhaps an ideal home office?) with power.

The property is found just off Oldham Road (A671) in the very popular area of Thornham - just over 1 mile from the thriving centre of Royton with its good range of shops, cafes, bars and restaurants. Locally there are some beautiful countryside walks yet the north west motorway network is just approximately 10 minutes’ drive away. Nearby schools include Thornham St James C of E Primary school and St Cuthbert’s RC High School. Crompton House C of E Academy is approximately 1 and a half mile away. The town centres of Rochdale and Oldham are easily accessible, and Manchester city centre is usually reachable by car in approximately 45 minutes.

From our office in Royton town centre head up Rochdale Road (A671) towards Thornham in the direction of Rochdale. After approximately 1 mile continue past the Summit Inn for a couple of hundred yards and then turn right hand into Langdale Avenue which leads on to Ferndale Avenue.
