Eccles is situated approximately 5 miles West of Manchester on the North bank of the Manchester Ship Canal. Ellesmere Park is located to the North of Eccles and to the East of Monton Village.
Holly Bank is a classic Victorian semi detached house. Despite having been restored and renovated via a programme of works which have included the conversion and tanking of the cellars, great emphasis was placed in retaining as many period features as possible. This has resulted in a grand and spacious 6 bedroom home, which offers a totally flexible living space. The converted cellars have provided a self contained 3 bedroom lower ground floor apartment which would be ideal as a 'Granny annexe' or could be rented separately to provide income. Holly Bank has high skirting boards, tiled fireplaces, decorative cornicing and mouldings to the ceiling and magnificent two storey galleried landings and staircases all adding to the charm and character of this unique residence.
Holly Bank is located on the periphery of Ellesmere Park which is an area of tree lined and highly sought after residential roads, which have always been much desired by the business and professional community alike. This area is very popular with medical professionals as Salford Royal Hospital is within walking distance as is Monton Village. Monton offers a range of boutique style shops, restaurants and bars. There is a bowling green with a club house, a cricket club and a pretty Village Green excellently maintained by the Monton Village Community Association. Shops and extensive transport links can be found at nearby Eccles, complete with rail, Metrolink and bus stations.
