Brooklyn is a substantial detached house set in gardens and paddock extending to 1.32 acres or thereabouts, occupying a very pleasant, semi-rural position on the outskirts of the desirable village of Brindle. The house is also convenient for local schools, shops and other amenities provided in neighbouring Clayton-le-Woods and for access onto the M6, M61 and M65 motorways. 

Interested parties should be aware that Brooklyn requires comprehensive upgrading and renovations but provides an excellent opportunity to refurbish and extend to create a bespoke residence. The property is situated within the Greenbelt and planning approval is usually permissible to enlarge by up to 50% of the volume of the existing structure. 


Travel north along Preston Road (A6) through Whittle-le-Woods and at the roundabout take the third exit onto Westwood Road (B5256). At the next roundabout take the first exit onto Sandy Lane and Brooklyn can then be found on the right.

Energy Rating 

Awaiting certificate 


It is understood the site is Freehold and free from Chief Rent. 


According to the Valuation Agency's website the Brooklyn has been placed in Band E and equates to a Council Tax of approximately £2290. 


Mains gas, electricity and water supplies are laid on and drainage is to a septic tank. It is suspected that the existing septic tank is unlikely to comply with current regulations and therefore potential purchasers should factor the cost of installing a new waste water treatment plant into their budget.
