Just a 5-10 minute drive to Tesco supermarket in Greenfield along with Greenfield Railway Station with frequent rail links to Manchester and Leeds City Centres.

Whilst the house does need a degree of modernisation, rarely do opportunities arise to acquire a home of this positioning and have the ability to put your own stamp on it. Contact Kirkham Property to enquire further or to request a viewing of Running Hill Farm House.
