Property Summary

Fully modernised and offered for sale with no chain, this impeccably presented, two-bedroom terraced cottage includes solid-wood floors, bright neutral décor, a brand new gas-fired central heating system and double glazing.
Within a short walk of numerous local amenities and within easy reach of the local public transport and motorway network, the property would be an ideal starter home for first-time buyers or perhaps as a buy-to-let investment.


17’ 9” (5.40m) x 11’ 2” (3.40m)

The front door of the cottage opens immediately onto the lounge area boasting exposed, wooden ceiling beams and an authentic open fireplace fitted with a log-burner set on a traditional stone hearth.
An alcove to the left of the chimney breast is ideal for shelving, another to the right for larger pieces of furniture while the room is comfortably large enough to accommodate soft furnishings around the fireplace.
The room is equipped with a thermostat for a new boiler, power points and a TV, phone and internet connection.
A double-glazed awning window overlooks the front of the property with a solid-wood door leading through to the kitchen/diner.

13’ 5” (4.10m) x 12’ 6” (3.80m)

Another exposed ceiling beam in the kitchen adds to the property’s cottage ambiance, although lighting is provided by modern, adjustable overhead spotlights. More natural light is also allowed by an awning window overlooking the courtyard to the rear of the house, which can also be accessed via a glass-panelled external door.
With warmth provided by a wall-mounted radiator, the kitchen design includes storage available in shaker-style base and wall units above and below solid-wood worktops laid out in a U shape. An electric oven and grill and a four-ring induction hob are located beneath an extractor while a stainless steel sink and drainer are set below the window.
Splashback brick tiles in white are fitted above the cooking and preparation spaces while the kitchen also includes space and plumbing for a dishwasher or washing machine.

17’ 9” (5.40m) x 11’ 2” (3.40m)

The spacious master bedroom overlooks the front of the house through a large awning window with warmth provided by a wall-mounted radiator to the right-hand side – supplemented by an authentic cast-iron fireplace with a bronze-effect grate.
Alcoves either side of the chimney breast are ideal for shelving if required while the room is equipped with power points in opposing corners, to the left of the door as well as a large walk in cupboard.

9’ 6” (2.90m) x 9’ 2” (2.80m)

The carpeted single bedroom overlooks the rear of the property through a large awning window and is equipped with a wall-mounted radiator, TV aerial connection and twin power sockets.

7’ 9” (2.35m) x 6’ 1” (2.00m)

Adjacent to the single bedroom at the rear of the house, the fully-tiled shower room includes a corner-quadrant cubicle tiled in green, a marble-effect floor with ceramic tiles in white above the dual-flush WC and pedestal hand basin. The room also incorporates a heated, ladder-style towel rail in chrome.


The house is built from traditional stone, the front door opening directly onto the pavement outside – although Old Ground Street is a quiet cul-de-sac so passing traffic is far from frequent. A smart, crazy-paved courtyard garden to the rear of the house can be accessed via a timber gate which opens onto stone steps or via an external door from the property’s kitchen/diner. Traditional stone-built walls to two sides and a timber fence offer some privacy from surrounding properties.


Tucked away in a private and quiet location behind Bolton Street (A676) Old Ground Street is comprised of stone-built terraces just a short walk from Morrison’s, the privately operated East Lancashire Railway, the Irwell and Red Rose Breweries, a Tesco Metro and an Aldi store, alongside the well-regarded Owens’ Restaurant and Bar and The Hungry Duck Bistro.
Bridge Street nearby is also home to a good selection of independent shops, businesses, restaurants and hot food takeaways, with buses to Bury and Peel Brow stopping here regularly. The M66 just a little to the east also makes travel by car south to Bury and Manchester and north towards Burnley relatively simple while, for those who like open green spaces, the Pennine hills are also within easy reach.

Local secondary school education is provided by Woodhey High School, located just over a mile to the south-west while the nearest primary school choices include St Andrew’s, rated as “good” by Ofsted in 2016 and St Joseph’s, which was assessed as “outstanding” in 2008.
Ramsbottom also enjoys a strong sense of community with hundreds usually attending the annual Easter egg-rolling tradition on Holcombe Hill while the market town also hosts an annual rhythm and blues festival and the black-pudding-throwing world championships.
