Bamford Cottage stands behind a long carriage driveway with twin automated gates and has impressive laurel topped stone boundary walls and impressive stone gate posts. Set within stunning gardens and woodland of about 1.4 acres, much designed for al fresco entertaining with a large heated gazebo, a croquet lawn leads to a pretty raised woodland area overlooking green belt parkland to the west.
Bamford village is highly regarded and includes an outstanding primary school, St Michael’s Church of England Primary School, within easy walking distance. There are good local senior schools and Bury Grammar Schools for Girls and Boys are only a short drive away.
Both Rochdale and Marland Golf Courses are a short distance away and the area abounds with leisure facilities and the nearby hills provide plenty of opportunities to enjoy country walks and cycle rides. Queens Park is within walking distance and stands above the Roch Valley, from which the local town of Rochdale was named.
The M62 motorway is only 2.5 miles away at junction 19 and provides both east-west access over the Pennines to Leeds, links to the M6 and M60 Manchester ring motorway along with Manchester International Airport. Most commercial areas of the North West are within easy commuting distance.
This impressive Georgian family house has been comprehensively restored and enhanced to provide all one would expect of a contemporary residence whilst retaining the elegance and charm of this most popular of architectural periods.
The inherent design features a delightful hallway with an elegant Georgian staircase, well proportioned rooms, window shutters and panelling plus many ornate Victorian embellishments. This has been augmented by a stunning orangery to the side and an outstanding Hetherington Newman bespoke living kitchen to the rear with a twin lantern roof creating a wonderful and light day to day family living area.
Whilst the main house offers great family space and entertaining areas, it is linked via a hallway to the fantastic open plan studio apartment and balcony above the multiple garages. This is the essence of multipurpose space, perfect for entertaining away from the main house, home offices, space for extended family or teenagers or as a leisure suite and gym.
An integral sound system is installed along with CCTV security and a monitored alarm system.
The attention to detail in this restoration is exceptional and the decor, finishes and style of the property are breathtaking.
The lovely external porch opens through to a superb hallway with a leaded and stained glass internal door, a fabulous stone floor and wainscot panelling. The period staircase has a carved newel post and leads up to the first floor landing. Off to the left are the two formal reception rooms, the first being the drawing room with an oak floor, a deep side bay with working internal shutters, a working stone fireplace and French doors to the orangery. To the rear is the formal dining room, again oak floored with a working fireplace, matching side bay and French doors to the orangery. The orangery is very elegant, has heated stone flooring and two sets of French doors to the gardens.
The main living area is based around the stunning Hetherington Newman bespoke kitchen with its large island, Silestone topped with an oak breakfast bar, a four oven Aga and Wolf appliances, a Miele hob and Barbecue, Steamer, Quooker instant boiling water, prep sink and double Franke sink. Gaggenau fridge/freezer and zoned wine fridges are fitted, there is under floor heating and rain and temperature controlled sky lights. A gadget/mobile phone charging station and a large walk in pantry with a hidden plant room are off the kitchen. This opens into a twin lantern roofed Vale orangery with dual aspect French doors and a comfortable family room.
The working section of the house includes a cloakroom with w.c off an inner hall and leads through to a utility room and a fitted separate laundry.
The annex is liked from here and includes a second cloakroom with a w.c. and an independent entrance to the front. A staircase leads up to the stunning open plan studio area mentioned previously with oak panelling, oak floors, vaulted ceilings with Velux and two double French doors opening to the balcony at the front from which there are super views over the gardens. A bespoke oak kitchen with an Aga is fitted with integrated appliances and a well appointed shower room and box store. Three immaculate garages and a workshop area lie below on the ground floor with triple automatic doors.
The first floor of the main house includes the superb master bedroom suite with a dual aspect, an adjoining fitted dressing room with scope for a fifth bedroom and a beautiful en suite bathroom by The Water Monopoly with a Victorian cast bath and shower canopy. An access door from the landing is handy for guests. There are three further double bedroom suites, all with well appointed bathrooms with contemporary Travertine tiled suites.
The gardens are described elsewhere in this document and include the double gazebo with heating, a large garden garage and extensive hard landscaping. The gated double driveway sweeps around to the annex area garaging and the croquet lawn forms the southern edge of the formal gardens with water features and a wild flower garden. A raised area of woodland lies beyond.
