Restored by its current owners with several original features intact, the beautiful character property makes a special family home which is completed by mature, walled gardens and ample off-road parking. Standing hidden from the road, behind the mature trees and walls surrounding its grounds, this home has been witness to about 400 years of history. Enter the character residence through its newly formed front door and into the hall. Here, a generous study area is incorporated into the bay window. Head through into the lounge, the largest room in the property. Sit by the open fireplace and admire the intricacies of the original beams and staircase on display. You can find access into the rear garden, enter the formal dining room or continue along the inner hallway into the breakfast kitchen. A fantastic entertaining space for visiting family and friends, a central island with a breakfast bar takes centre stage with an array of of wall and base units wrapping around. The range cooker is ideal for any aspiring cook! A downstairs wc and utility room complete the ground floor. Head up the stairs and take note of the exposed woodwork or sit down in the seating area before continuing into the bedrooms or heading upstairs to the second floor. On your right, the main bedroom benefitting from its own four-piece en-suite bathroom and walk-in-wardrobe. Across the landing, a large, dual aspect double room overlooking the gardens. Before heading onto the second floor, make your way into another double room. This bedroom comes with a three-piece en-suite shower room. Now, heading upstairs to the second floor. A twin room with a large storage cupboard which has the potential to be converted into another en-suite. Finally, the last bedroom in the property. Currently dressed as a cinema room, but is a comfortable double room with storage into the eaves. Outside, the gardens feel very secret and feel as though you are in the countryside with its manicured lawns, sun terrace and hidden by mature trees makes it so secluded that once you're in the garden you have no idea what is beyond the walls. However, within walking distance form the property is Bury town centre, in addition to being a short journey from excellent shops and equally good local schools. With coming to market, this stunning character residence offers a fantastic opportunity to purchase your own little bit of history!

Additional Information

The history of the house has been traced back to 1659 when it was recorded as the birth place of the mother of the hymm composer John Byron who wrote the carol 'Christians Awake', and at one time it formed the coaching house of the hamlet of Starkie. It was an estate belonging to Captain Starkie who raised a private army of 500 cavalry to fight against Napoleon's troops in the 18th century, all of whom were paid 10 guineas in advance. Later in the early 20th century it became a rectory and during this time a third floor was added. The house still has its cobbled courtyard and included in its grade II listed status are the Georgian walls surrounding the grounds
