Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Briar Lea is also known as 28 Whitegate Road is located in a beautiful part of Winsford, arguably the best location in the town on the Marton/Whitegate border. The property is very special having been in the same ownership since 1964 and has been a much loved and treasured family home ever since. The property was auctioned by Messrs Joseph Wright & Co (who in turn became part of Wright Manley and then Wright Marshall). In 1963 the property was described as a desirable freehold detached bungalow residence, with delightful views adjoining open countryside. In 2016 the same can be said and its with great delight that Wright Marshall offer the property for sale.

The property is constructed of brick with tiled roof and affords an excellent layout that is far bigger than one might initially expect. The accommodation is incredibly flexible and adaptable to suit the differing requirements of many alternative parties and a viewing is absolutely essential to appreciate not only the bungalow itself but also the size of the gardens and grounds, the comprehensive nature of the double garage/workshop and of course the magnificent views that are to the front, side and rear.

The accommodation opens with a most attractive entrance hall which is a substantial size. Within the entrance hall there is parquet flooring, carpet and doors that lead to the principal reception rooms, bedrooms and stairwell that leads to the first floor. The living room is a good proportion and has within it a custom built sideboard/display cabinet and a front aspect bay window. The dining room is of a good size with a wonderful aspect to the side over a farmer's field. The rear hall is fully tiled and has doors that lead to the dining room, kitchen and conservatory. The kitchen is equipped with a comprehensive range of wall and floor cupboards and has ample space for white goods. The conservatory is fitted at the rear of the bungalow, has UPVC double glazed windows that overlook the garden and the views to the side and rear.

With regards to bedrooms at the ground floor level, the principal bedroom is to the front and has a bay window that overlooks the gardens. There is a further double bedroom at the rear of the house with a vanitory unit within it and an excellent aspect over the garden in addition to floor to ceiling fitted wardrobes. The third bedroom is a smaller single to the side of the property and the family bathroom is an excellent size albeit now in need of some modernisation and improvement.

At first floor level accessed from a stairwell in the entrance hall is a lovely games room which has a fabulous double glazed window overlooking the wonderful views beyond. This area could alternatively be used as simply an excellent storage area.

As already mentioned the external environment is a real treat having wonderful views to the front, side and rear and a particularly large garden that is principally laid to lawn but also has within it a raised area that houses a well stocked pond. The double garage/workshop is of an excellent size, ideal for those who enjoy DIY or have an enthusiasm for motor vehicles or such pursuits.

Being offered to the market for the first time in over fifty years, priced at a very competitive level to attract market interest and boasting excellent accommodation that has to be viewed to be appreciated, this really is a splendid opportunity the like of which is rarely found.
