Full description

For many, the dream of living with the peace and serenity which accompanies water-side living is the ultimate aspiration. For those individuals, this quaint two bed mid-terraced cottage will undoubtedly appeal, idyllically situated overlooking a body of water known locally as ‘The Lagoon’, creating a real sense of tranquillity at an affordable price, which means that, for one fortunate buyer, the dream could soon become a reality. Lakeside Cottages date as far back as 1857, forming part of the Mayflower conservation area on the pretty semi-rural border of Haigh and Standish, designated as an area of special architectural or historical interest and originally constructed as accommodation for the workers within the cotton industry and former bleach works. Today, the picturesque setting has proven consistently desirable by those looking for a haven from the hustle and bustle of daily life, being tucked away along this quiet, tree-lined lane and surrounded by beautiful local countryside.

The Leeds Liverpool canal is only a short meander away, and a little further afield, the stunning Haigh Hall Country Park, spanning hundreds of acres and home to Haigh Hall, one of the most beautiful stately homes in the North-West of England, and so one is never without a quiet space in which to take a leisurely stroll to relax away the stresses of the day. Whilst the picturesque setting could convince even the most hardened sceptic that one is in the deepest depths of the countryside, this home is far from isolated, with the bustling village centre of Standish approximately a mile away, providing a host of shops and amenities, as well as excellent schools and transport links via the M6 motorway, proving that having that peaceful life does not necessarily have to mean isolation.

The delightful character accommodation brims with both charm and personality, and our clients have tastefully blended modern appointments with all the rustic elements one would desire from a home of its type, such as cast iron radiators, exposed floorboards and traditional doors, all of which will become abundantly clear as one enters the 15’ lounge, which has a spectacular aspect over the water, as well as boasting a gorgeous feature fireplace with inset solid fuel burner, conjuring images of cold winter evenings huddled around a roaring fire. The kitchen has recently been smartly re-fitted with a range of base units in white with contrasting black granite work surfaces and a traditional Belfast sink, and equipped with an integrated electric oven and halogen hob, whilst there is also a useful separate utility room. 

If one ventures up to the first floor, the landing area provides access to the two pretty bedrooms, both of which are located to the front of the property to take advantage of the pretty lake-side views, and the larger of which boasts a beautiful original cast-iron fireplace. The good-sized shower room completes the accommodation, and is fitted with a contemporary three piece suite in classic white, comprising of WC, wall-mounted wash hand basin and over-sized walk-in shower. 

Externally, there is a small enclosed courtyard to the rear, and beyond an elevated garden area bordering open countryside and featuring a decked seating area which would make an ideal spot to enjoy a relaxing glass of wine in those warm summer evenings. We would highly recommend an internal inspection of this delightful home.
