Property details | 5 BedroomsDetached | Waterfront, Greenfield, Saddleworth

For Sale • £1,250,000 • 5 Single Bedrooms

Inglenook is situated on 1.2 acres of land and close to the Dovestones Reservoir. Dating back to the 1820s as a former coaching inn, this substantial sized property enjoys a unique position and grounds in the village of Greenfield. Rarely do opportunities of this nature arise in Saddleworth given the size of the house and the land.

The property is a grand residence and has been continuously upgraded and modernized by the current owners to create a beautifully appointed property. Following a conversion of the existing outbuilding in 2010, it is now possible to create an independent annex dwelling at the back for a multigenerational household.

Inside, the house is on two floors. On the ground floor you will find a large hallway, a ground floor toilet, a living room, a dining room, a kitchen, a laundry room, a living room, a bedroom, a bathroom and a kitchenette. From the first floor landing there is access to four further bedrooms (one of which is en-suite), a family bathroom and a study room.

The current owners have also had previously approved plans for a loft conversion and a rear dormer window to create even more living space which can be found on the Oldham Planning website under reference HH/335077/14.

The property is generously proportioned with each room being large in size. All outdoor spaces are also well proportioned. There are three main garden areas which are the paved rear courtyard, two formal landscaped gardens and a large private woodland area. Fantastic views are on offer reaching the Pots and Pans monument, Dovestones Edge and the surrounding area of ​​Saddleworth Moorland.

A large closed car park is available in addition to the independent double garage.

Inglenook offers a unique proposition on the market. The house is off Waterside, which in turn is on Holmfirth Road and a short walk from the Dovestones Reservoir. For more information please contact Kirkham Property 7 days a week.
