This charming property boasts an enviable location just a stone's throw away from Middlewood Way, the Macclesfield Canal, White Nancy, The Bollington recreation ground, and an array of shops, pubs, and restaurants. Bollington's popularity has been increasing steadily over the years due to its proximity to local amenities, quaint village feel, and tight-knit community. It is a wonderful place to call home for families and first-time buyers alike.
The property itself is set back from the road and features a delightful front garden with a lovely stone wall and wooden gated access to the front door pathway. The first few houses on the estate were built with real stone, as this was a requirement for the developers during the planning application process.
In addition to its charming exterior, this superb home also offers the convenience of off-road parking on a tarmac driveway that can accommodate more than one vehicle - an electric vehicle charging point (PodPoint) is installed. The private rear garden is equally impressive, with a wooden gazebo adorning a small patio seating area that overlooks the lawn and well-stocked borders.
Inside, the property is presented to a good standard in every room and is sure to appeal to a wide range of potential buyers. The modern uPVC double glazing and IDEAL gas combi boiler make this home energy efficient with an energy performance certificate rating of B.
The ground floor comprises a spacious entrance hallway with under-stairs storage, a convenient downstairs WC, a generously sized bay window lounge, and a stylish modern fitted kitchen diner with patio doors that lead out into the stunning rear garden. The sale includes appliances such as a fridge freezer, integrated hob, built-in oven, and extractor hood. On the first floor, there are two good-sized double bedrooms and a three-piece white bathroom suite. The master bedroom, as labeled on the floor plan, provides great versatility, allowing it to be sectioned into two single bedrooms.

What Does Shared Ownership Mean?
This property is owned 55% by the vendor and 45% by a housing association (Plumlife). On the share of the property you don't own you pay a rent to the housing association. Furthermore you are able to 'staircase' your ownership of the property up to 100% by buying more equity through the housing association.
