What The Owner Says
"I fell in love with the uniqueness of my home nearly 30 years ago and I still am .... It’s tucked away down a cobbled driveway , away from the hustle and bustle but close enough to everything. A hidden Gem in the heart of Prestwich, a quaint 4 bed home with a private courtyard and garden, quiet and safe. It has a real open and bright feel. It was built in 1880 as part of the dairy before being converted into a house and very cleverly keeps cool in the summer and retains the heat in winter. It’s been a wonderful place to live and I am sure who ever lives here will love it as much as we have.
The house comes with the added bonus of full Planning permission to extend to a 5 bed / 5 bath much larger property."
