Enquiries established that a group of offenders in possession of weapons had caused damage to a property before ramming a car they were driving into a stationary car parked on the driveway.
The impact of this collision caused the stationary car to collide with the front of the property, causing significant damage to the house.
Two cars were recovered from the scene and a full investigation was launched.
Detectives have since arrested a 22-year-old man on suspicion of criminal damage. He remains in custody for questioning.
Detective Inspector Alison Witkiewicz of GMP's Bury district, said: "Thankfully no one was injured as a result of this disturbance but it could have resulted in a far worse outcome.
"Since the report we've been following multiple lines of enquiry and have since arrested one male in connection with the incident. Although we've made an arrest our enquiries will continue and I would encourage anyone with information, or footage, to get in touch with us as a matter of urgency."
Anyone with information should contact police on 0161 856 8133, quoting incident number 105 of 04/10/2021.
