Full description

Wigan Lane has always been renowned for boasting some of Wigan's most desirable period houses but this is without doubt one of its finest. Not only does it sit at the higher end with spectacular views over Douglas Valley & surrounding countryside but also offers 6 bedrooms and in excess of 3000 sq.ft. of beautifully appointed and recently updated accommodation. Situated in Wigan's prestigious Green Hill conservation area, the front exterior has remained largely true to its original design with the small addition of an extension over the garage. However, a whole new floor has been created in the loft and extensions added to the rear which have increased the overall size of the property by more than 50% and made it so deceptively spacious. The owners have also extensively updated the interior including many modern benefits whilst retaining many distinct period features, thus creating a wonderful blend of old and new. This includes a magnificent reception hallway with cloakroom, WC and beautiful turning staircase, but is best highlighted in the main lounge which features an inglenook fireplace with the original picture stained glass windows, complimented with a striking red decor and stylish modern fixtures and fittings. There is another family room which is currently used as a games/entertainment room and a open plan bespoke kitchen with centre island, granite work surfaces, luxury integrated appliances and a seating area with fantastic views to rear. Off the kitchen, there are two utility rooms, a store and 2nd ground floor WC. There are two more floors of accommodation comprising six bedrooms, two ensuite shower rooms and a charming family bathroom with roll top bath. The property benefits from full uPVC double glazing including reglazing the original stained glass windows and is warmed by gas central heating. Outside, there is a large paved driveway to the front to provide off road parking for several cars with mature plants and shrubs enclosed by a brick wall and an attached double garage with automatic doors.There is a beautiful landscaped garden to the rear elevation with an abundance of mature plants, shrubs and paved patio area with steps leading down to the mature lawn. The rear garden is a credit to its present owners and has the added benefit of not being directly overlooked and enjoys the spectacular panoramic views over Douglas Valley and the surrounding countryside. An early viewing on this prestigious property is essential.
