Cosy & Characterful

Steeped in history and nestled within a tranquil setting, this unique Grade II listed detached home lies between Greenmount and all the amenities of Tottington village, with Whitehead Gardens and Kay Woods a mere stone’s throw away.

Dating back to 1772, the interior is a labyrinth of levels, beams, and vaulted ceilings that combine character with a feeling of space throughout the home’s two reception rooms and four double bedrooms, including master and guest suites and a family bathroom.

The property also benefits from a high-speed fibre-optic broadband connection (ideal for home workers), a Worcester Bosch remote-control energy-efficient boiler guaranteed until 2028, and a fully boarded loft.

To the rear, the charming cottage garden overlooks a meadow home to sheep, goats and cows, where a convenient public footpath leads to the Kirklees Valley Trail – a converted railway track that now forms a walking and cycling route into Bury town centre.

Tucked Away

Although this lovely 18th-century converted barn enjoys easy access to Holcombe Road, which runs into the heart of the village, it’s also separated from the wide tree-lined street by a high brick wall and electric gates, granting a sense of seclusion and privacy.

Fringed with mature shrubs and a palm tree, the part-cobbled driveway and crazy-paved courtyard allow parking for up to five cars, with more room in the stone-built garage. This adjoins an elegant red-brick exterior, where two massive feature windows with curved brick lintels flood the hallway and living room with natural light.

The Charm Continues…

Stepping through a vertically panelled front door, you’re met by the beautifully bright and spacious hallway, where the sunlight enriches the wooden parquet floor with colour and warmth.

Meanwhile, ornate coving and a rose-crowned chandelier coordinate with decorative wallpaper below the dado rail to backdrop a dramatic half-landing staircase, which features a floral carpet and charcoal bannisters to contrast with the outer woodwork.

There’s plenty of open storage space beneath, while opposite, you’ll find a handy cloakroom with country-garden-inspired décor and a traditional basin and low-level toilet.

Returning to the hall, pass the covered radiator as you enter the living room – a spacious reception illuminated by that impressive feature window overlooking the front. Detailed coving and a ceiling rose with a central chandelier adorn the ceiling, while a dado rail intersects a white mantelpiece surrounding a working brick fireplace and tiled hearth.

To the rear of the hallway, you’ll find a country-style kitchen featuring wrap-around wooden cabinetry with chunky wooden worktops and a grey metro-tiled splashback with contrasting white grouting. Integrated appliances include a De’Longhi oven with a gas hob and concealed extractor hood and a concealed fridge-freezer and dishwasher.

Recessed downlights and a deep window framing views of Holcombe Hill brighten the space, which steps up into a dining room that fuses deep skirting boards, dado rails, and coving for character. At the same time, a chandelier-style pendant, elegant wall lights, and a large casement window to the garden soften the mood for mealtimes.

Carry on to find a large laundry room with plenty of in-built storage and worksurfaces that echo the black-and-white metro-tiled splashback, plus space for a washing machine and tumble dryer. There’s direct access to the garage from here, while back in the kitchen, a door opens to a boot room area leading to the side courtyard.

Space for Everyone

Ascend the impressive staircase to reach the top floor, where the floral carpet flows across the landing and the regal décor and features in the hallway below repeat.

Turning right, you’ll discover the master suite, hidden behind a private entrance that steps down into a spot-lit double bedroom big enough for a four-poster bed. With a beamed sloped ceiling, an attractive casement capturing the rural views, and a lower dressing area, you’d be forgiven for thinking you were in a high-end boutique hotel.

By the dressing area, you’ll also find a spacious modern en suite, where crisp white paintwork and dark blue panelling under a sturdy beam create a nautical feel. Laminate flooring offsets a panelled jacuzzi bath with Victorian-style taps and a handheld shower attachment, a tiled shower enclosure, a chrome heated towel rail, and a traditional close-coupled toilet and pedestal basin with a back-lit mirror above.

Across the landing, another generously sized double boasts lovely views across to Peel Tower from a deep-set window with a fitted blind and a quirky porthole. With a contemporary three-piece shower room on hand, it would make the perfect guest room.

Two large front and rear doubles with laminate flooring and deep-set casements with fitted blinds complete the accommodation. They share a spot-lit bathroom with grey panelling and white walls, which complement a panelled corner jacuzzi bath with Victorian-style taps and handheld shower attachment, a huge fitted mirror, a chrome heated towel rail, and more traditional-style sanitaryware.

Step Outside

Opening the back door, you’ll arrive in a walled side courtyard that can work as a handy storage space and an area for pot plants and kitchen herbs.

Continue through the tall wrought-iron gate, where a neat lawn enclosed by fencing, mature shrubs and boundary trees creates a secluded atmosphere where children and pets can play in safety. With nothing but meadows behind the house and views over to Holcombe Hill, it’s a lovely place to escape to enjoy al fresco drinks and meals.

Out & About

Tottington is a leafy, semi-rural town on the edge of the West Pennine Moors, just a few minutes’ drive from the historic market town of Bury and 15 minutes from Bolton. The 469 bus from Tottington runs to Bury between 6am and 11.30pm up to four times an hour – perfect for commuting or an evening out. From there, the Metrolink can rapidly transport you to Manchester or further afield.

Filled with parks, gardens, and woodland, plus a range of sporting facilities such as cricket, golf, and football clubs and a local gym, the family-friendly area acts as a gateway between the urban conveniences of Bury and the rural lifestyle on your doorstep.

From the house, you can stroll into the village and enjoy lunch at the library tearoom or book in at the hair salon or The Holistic Retreat. Pick up your essentials from the butchers, chemist, or the Co-op, open late daily. There’s also a doctors’ surgery and dentist nearby.

You are spoiled for choice for evening entertainment, too, with three local pubs – The Dungeon Inn, Tottington Conservative Club, and The Robin Hood – all frequented by the locals, along with two wine bars – Bilardi’s and Stanley’s. In addition, Carmelo’s and China Rose are also very popular for their respective Italian and Chinese cuisine.

The property is also ideally positioned for families, with a playpark in the village and an Ofsted-rated ‘Outstanding’ nursery school just down the road. Greenmount Primary School (‘Good’) is also within easy walking distance.

While there’s a well-rated high school in the town, Tottington is also in the catchment area for the prestigious Bacup & Rawtenstall Grammar School, served by a school bus running from Greenmount village.



*The garden at the rear is subject to a garden licence. The land owner has agreed to issue a licence to the new owner of the house, contingent upon vetting approval. An annual licence fee of £250 to £350 applies.
