Plot 1 - Canal View


Overview - the total internal space is just over 4,700 sq ft of accommodation laid out as follows:
Ground floor, first floor and second floor space - 2,250 sq ft - this provides the main bedroom and living accommodation.

The accommodation is to be as follows:


Entering via a Large Vestibule into the Feature Hallway which incorporates Cloakroom and Separate W.C as well as a tucked away Kids Store and Utility Room. There is also the main Living Room with feature fireplace. Stairs then lead down into the main fabulous vaulted single storey family entertainment space that includes: Family Living Area with extensive views and feature fireplace, Dining Area and Extensive Kitchen with direct access on the south facing patios and 60 square metres of gardens with raised planters. The intelligent use of the levels within the plots allow 60m2 exclusive lawns and patios to be elevated by 3.5m above the canal bank level allowing for maximum privacy.


With the properties incorporating large glazing and roof skylights this property will be filled with natural daylight throughout the day and throughout the year. With direct access from all principal rooms to the gardens, entertaining and alfresco dining can be fully appreciated. From the garden further access is provided to the lower patio situated on the canal edge allowing access to mooring points and is a fabulous location to entertain and take in the relaxing location that the plot location offers.


Access to the first floor is via the double height atrium staircase space that allows access to the first floor. On the First Floor there are 4 Bedrooms as designed, along with a Study, however amendments could be undertaken by the potential purchasers. 2 of these bedrooms are En-Suite whilst the 3rd and 4th share a Jack & Jill Style En-Suite. To the second floor is the Fabulous Master Bedroom Suite with vaulted ceiling, having very much a penthouse apartment feel.


The basement is extremely flexible as to the accommodation it could include. There is the spacious open Garage for up to 4 cars as well as Workshop (or Cinema/Gym/Home office), Plant Room, WC and Store.


These unique south facing plots have the benefit of potential mooring rights onto the canal and are set in one of the most sought after locations in the County of Lancashire within walking distance of a public house restaurant and leisure complex as well as being within easy access of the beautiful West Pennine Moors, the connectivity for the motorway network and the market town of Chorley.


These are the last plots on Dark Lane with wide ranging open views and the benefit of energy saving technology including air source powered underfloor heating and 2 log-burners in each dwelling along with exceptionally flexible basement accommodation and garage. There are South facing garden spaces that are surprisingly spacious and very exclusive to the canal setting.

Full architects' floorplans and proposed elevations are available upon request.
