Secluded Luxury

Nestled in approximately three acres of beautiful gardens, complete with a tennis court and next to a boating lake, all enclosed by Greenbelt countryside and the Bolholt Estate, this immaculate five-bedroom, 5.5-bathroom rural residence is a unique find on the outskirts of Bury.

Once owned by the Skorski family (of Bolholt Estate), who held the home for generations, the 8,000-square-foot house has since been brought back to life by the current owners.

Inside, the property has been fully redecorated, rewired and replumbed. Throughout, new signature doors, feature chandeliers and LED mood lighting, and underfloor heating to the tiled areas link the grandly proportioned living areas and en suite bedrooms together.

You’ll also discover an open plan, recently refitted dining kitchen and kitchenette; a new integrated conservatory; bespoke joinery, media walls, and dressing rooms in all six bedrooms; and separately controlled Bluetooth speakers in the bedrooms and gym.

Outside, the improvements included landscaping the grounds and installing a new tennis court. Meanwhile, the new external lighting scheme illuminates the woodland-style, re-laid golden-gravel gated driveway that turns off from Walshaw Road via the Bolholt Estate.

Parking either to the front or the area to the side, you’re greeted by a K-rendered exterior with new fascias, gutters and soffits, and huge black-framed windows, including those surrounding a glossy, double-height black front door.

Welcome Home

Stepping into the hallway, you can’t help but be impressed by the fusion of light and grandeur, from the double-height glazed entrance rising to a galleried landing with a stunning chandelier to the LED lighting edging gorgeous high-gloss heated tiles underfoot.

Ahead, a new handcrafted Italian half-landing staircase with a fitted runner, tread lights, and an exquisite ornate bannister to match the gallery draws you towards a walk-in cloakroom leading to a convenient two-piece WC.

Breathe Easy

On either side of the hallway, part-glazed signature double doors reveal two beautifully decorated reception rooms with original east-facing bays that capture the serene garden-lake views and plenty of morning sunlight.

Starting in the lounge to the right, LED ceiling accents, spotlights, and a luxe chandelier pair with deep side windows to brighten crisp white walls, a plush cream carpet, and a decorative original archway. A pair of sleek matt radiators provide warmth and style.

Across the hall in the living room, matching spot-lit décor channels your focus to the wide bay, a series of bifolding doors, and huge picture windows that link the integrated conservatory to the terrace and lake beyond, creating an amazing space for summer parties.

At the same time, a central wall with a modern feature fireplace below an alcove for a television shifts your attention inwards for cosy evenings in, backed up by another sleek radiator. Solid wood, spot-lit nooks for displaying artwork pop against the white paintwork for a stylish touch. 

Wine & Dine

From the living room, a walkthrough leads into a fabulous modern dining kitchen lined with the same gorgeous marble-effect tiles found in the hallway. You’ll begin in the dining area, where expansive windows and glazed double doors overlook the south lawn, and spotlights and mood lighting illuminate the clean lines and surfaces throughout.

On either side of a fabulous Element4 Sky Large Tunnel gas fire set within a feature wall, walkthroughs draw you into an oversized kitchen further warmed by matching radiators and underfloor heating. Large mirrored splashbacks reflect light from the chandelier pendants, enhancing the sense of light and space along with the full-height west-facing picture windows.

Elegant tonal cabinetry built along one wall and a long, six-seater island bar – with quartz worktops and gold handles – create a sophisticated backdrop for any party and provide ample storage. The fitted NEFF appliances include a double oven and microwave built into the main bank, an electric hob with a hidden extractor and a gas hob to the island, a fridge-freezer and a dishwasher.

You’ll also find a large storage cupboard, while a grey panelled door leads to a separate storage room and a big and bright secondary/spice kitchen that matches the first in design and comes fully fitted with NEFF appliances. You can also access the garden from here, so you can avoid bringing the shopping through the main house.

Work & Play

Returning to the entrance hall, follow the walkthrough into the rear hallway, where you’ll find stairs to a two-room cellar (ideal for storing your wine collection) and a study lit by a west-facing window. To your right, a big dual-aspect spot-lit gym with practical flooring, integrated cupboards, and Bluetooth speakers leads to a glazed porch connecting to the side parking area.

Retreat Upstairs

As you ascend the wide half-landing staircase with its stunning wrought-iron Italian bannister and arrive on the first floor, you’re met by a view over the hallway and the tree-peppered front garden. In the evening, the palatial chandelier comes into its own.

The Amtico parquet flooring underfoot pairs with a tiled stone-effect feature wall, while throughout the six doubles and five en suite bathrooms, immaculate white paintwork/tiling, spotlights, and sleek radiators combine for a warm, bright and modern aesthetic.

Indulgent Slumber

In the super-size master, Amtico meets a thick cream carpet and a soft, full-height integrated headboard flanked by mirrors. These reflect light from several windows with fitted blinds and glazed doors opening onto the roof of the bay below, like in the second front bedroom.

Follow the Amtico into the adjoining dressing room, which is fitted with marble-effect mirrored wardrobes and a vanity table beneath a back-lit mirror. The en suite, with its marble-effect tiling to the walls and floor and gold fittings, is equally elegant and offers ultimate luxury in the form of a gorgeous slipper bath, a stylish walk-in rainfall shower, a double vanity basin unit beneath an illuminated mirror, and a smart toilet.

Exploring the rest of the upstairs, you’ll discover another five double bedrooms served by a first-floor laundry room. They feature a mix of thick-pile carpets and Amtico parquet flooring, bespoke joinery, Bluetooth speakers, fully fitted walk-in dressing rooms, and spa-hotel-quality en suite bath and shower rooms with smart toilets. Bedroom five comes with an adjoining room, making it an ideal guest suite.

A Peaceful Idyll

Outside, the three acres of fully enclosed grounds are laid out in the parkland style, allowing you to ramble across extensive, wrap-around lawns, while tall mature trees create shady spots to retreat from the sun and stare up at the canopy.

Meanwhile, the enormous lake provides a serene and picturesque oasis, offering a captivating view where adults and children can delight in watching the wildlife and admiring the scenery. The private tennis court sets the scene for lively afternoons and friendly matches, surrounded by this tranquil backdrop. With ample parking available on the driveway and the extensive parking area to the side of the property, it's perfectly equipped to welcome your guests for memorable gatherings.
