Full Details

‘Red Gates’ is the most impressive of detached family homes, set in an equally magnificent setting of Edgworth, Bolton. Previously the Headmasters’ residence of Crowthorn School, which was originally founded in 1872. The school has now been converted into luxury housing, but Crowthorn village, including ‘Red Gates’ is steeped in history. A stone detached home, boasting five double bedrooms and five reception rooms, able to accommodate the largest of families. Dating back to the 19th Century, and with many original features still prominent throughout the property, this unique period home is sure to entice those looking for a blend of space, character and unrivalled views. Sat on a substantial plot the property enjoys beautiful extensive gardens with open far reaching views to the rear. The rear garden is southerly facing, and wraps round to the side of the property leading to a delightful woodland area with brook running through. There is further potential to add additional rooms, by converting the basement level into a two bed apartment (planning previously granted but now expired, planning no. 10/10/0493).

A fantastic fit for this home would be a large family with older parents who want to live with them, but at the same time enjoy their own independence.
