Full description

Should one be searching for that perfect balance of character and modern day living, then this fabulous two hundred year old three bed stone-built semi-detached residence presents itself as a fine prospect indeed; a beautiful conversion from a former school house and the winner of Wigan Council’s Heritage Design Award in 2015, it also has a House Builders Ten year guarantee. This individual home provides the opportunity to acquire a property of local historical significance and has lost none of its original charm, with one not failing to be enchanted by its rustic chocolate box exterior, whilst inside, the skilful conversion has created a home for the 21st century, with open plan living spaces and modern appointments throughout, providing a smart contrast. Available with the benefit of no onward chain, the property is situated within the consistently sought-after village of Shevington, with its library and many local activity groups and 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.

The bustling village provides a host of local shops and amenities, a number of highly regarded schools at both primary and secondary level, including Shevington Community Primary School, which is located virtually on the doorstep, 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 property itself offers in excess of 900 square feet of accommodation, with wonderfully bright living spaces and neutral decor throughout, with windows and doors hand made by a local carpenter and dry stone wall built with original stone by local stone masons, entering via the welcoming entrance hallway, with its wooden flooring and useful two piece cloakroom/WC, and proceeding through into the superb open plan L-shaped lounge/dining room, which is ideally suited to modern day living, providing a fantastically sociable space for entertaining, or in which the family can gather together, with the plethora of windows providing a dual aspect, as well as bathing the room in natural light. 

The kitchen benefits from a separate utility area, and is fitted with a range of wall and base units with contrasting laminated work surfaces, and includes an integrated electric oven, four ring gas hob and extractor canopy, whilst there are French doors opening directly onto the garden, which will be invaluable in those warm summer months. If one ventures up to the first floor, the three well proportioned bedrooms will be revealed, all of which are bright and appealing, as well as the family bathroom, which is fitted with a three piece suite in classic white, comprising of pedestal wash hand basin, close coupled WC and panelled bath with overhead shower. 

Externally, the property enjoys a low maintenance frontage, with a shingled driveway providing off-road parking for a number of vehicles, whilst the enclosed rear garden is mainly laid to lawn. Viewing is highly recommended.
