Barrowdene House is an impressive building that sits in this quiet and historic area of Barrow Bridge in Bolton. Located within a conservation area, the now converted building was a former school dating back to the 1850's and was a focal point of the village which housed the mill workers. The cobbled streets and Victorian street lamps add to the atmosphere and the flat itself has also retained its period features with high ceilings, high skirting boards and large windows. Converted in the early 1990's into 14 apartments, one of the highlights of this property is that it has its own entrance and two car parking spaces which sit right outside the front door. Ideally suited for first time buyers and those looking to downsize.
Situated on the ground floor the apartment comprises of, Entrance vestibule, hallway, Living room with large window, space for dining and folding doors that open to the kitchen. The kitchen is fitted with wall and base units and space for white goods.
