***Reduced ***This distinctive five bed detached residence has real curb appeal, its characterful exterior oozing charm and personality, whilst once inside there is a real feeling of nostalgia, with an abundance of features, as well as generously proportioned living spaces which extend to circa 2,530 square feet and infuse a lovely warm and inviting ambiance. The property occupies a most desirable position opposite Ashfield Park, a popular recreational area and making it ideal for those with children, whilst being situated on the much respected Wigan Road, widely acknowledged as one of the finest addresses the thriving village of Standish has to offer, and an area which has demonstrated itself to be a consistent attraction to prospective buyers, its strong sense of community, and all that it is able to offer its inhabitants, being a particularly strong pull for those looking for a location to raise their family.
At its heart, the beautiful Parish Church of St. Wilfrid, the only Grade I listed building within Wigan, as well as other delightful landmarks such as a late medieval cross and stone stocks in the market place, whilst the bustling village centre provides a host of local shops and amenities, including a post office, two banks and three supermarkets. When one is craving something more vibrant still, Wigan town centre is only a short distance away with its diverse range of high street stores, trendy bars and eclectic eateries, which will be perfect for those who enjoy a hectic social calendar. The area boasts a number of highly regarded schools at both primary and secondary level, whilst the older members of the family are also well catered for, with close proximity to the M6 motorway ensuring major commercial centres such as Manchester, Liverpool and Preston are within a reasonable commute.
The accommodation has been extended significantly from the original design, with a two storey extension to the side elevation offering the potential to create a self-contained annex with its own entrance, which would be perfect for a dependent relative such as a teenager or granny, who requires their own private spaces, yet with the reassurance of being within the family home. Furthermore, there is additional potential for living space in the converted attic room, as well as the tandem garage, subject to the usual consents and approvals.
One enters the property via the welcoming reception hallway, which makes a delightful first impression, with its spindled staircase to the first floor and tiled flooring, and immediately senses the homely ambiance which pervades throughout, continuing through into the first of the three reception rooms, a beautiful 16’ lounge, boasting a lovely feature fireplace with decorative surround and inset cast iron fire, which adds a real touch of character, whilst there is direct access to the rear garden via the uPVC double glazed French windows, which will be invaluable in the warm summer months. A superb 22’ open plan family/dining room provides a wonderful room for recreation for the family or when one is entertaining friends for dinner, with its rather grand fireplace and gorgeous decorative plasterwork, as well as another impressive view over the garden, whilst the third reception room is located to the front of the property – a cosy snug, again with gorgeous period detailing, such as a plate rack and stunning ceiling, and which could be utilised for a number of purposes, such as a playroom for the young ones, or perhaps a study for those requiring some space to work from home. The 15’ kitchen incorporates a breakfast bar for informal dining, and has recently undergone some modernisation, being fitted with a range of high gloss wall and base units in white, with contrasting laminated work surfaces and equipped with a range of integrated appliances, including a double electric oven, five ring gas hob with extractor canopy and dishwasher, whilst to the first floor, the characterful landing provides access to the five double bedrooms, making this a perfect house for the growing family. The main family bathroom is fitted with a five piece suite in classic white comprising of WC, pedestal wash hand basin, bidet, corner jacuzzi bath and separate shower cubicle, whilst there is a separate three piece contemporary shower room and a further separate washroom/WC.
Externally, the property occupies a substantial plot, with good-sized gardens to the front and rear, being mainly laid to lawn, with the rear being well screened and with a paved patio area, which will be an ideal spot for those impromptu family barbeques when the weather allows. Off-road parking facilities are available on the driveway for a number of vehicles, which also provides access to the integral tandem garage. We would highly recommend an internal inspection of this super family home.
