Full description

Few properties have the ability to stir emotion and desire even before one takes a step through the threshold, but this handsome five bed detached residence certainly has that unique quality in abundance, offering real curb appeal and sure to have been cast many wistful glances from admiring passers-by. Being one of the most recognisable homes in the area, ‘Craiglands’ represents a rare opportunity to acquire a truly impressive and unique family home, brimming with all of the charm and character which is synonymous with a bygone era, and boasting one of the finest addresses the area has to offer.

This quality home occupies an enviable corner plot on The Green within the centre of Eccleston, a highly desirable and thriving village with so much to offer the family. Resting beside the River Yarrow, Eccleston was formally an agricultural village with a rich history stretching back many hundreds of years, being first mentioned in the Doomsday book in 1086. These days, of course, the village has developed considerably and offers outstanding amenities to rival a small town, with an array of shops available within the Carrington Centre, whilst high performing schools could not be any more conveniently located, such as Eccleston St. Mary’s Church of England Primary School and Eccleston Primary School, which are within easy reach, as is the M6 motorway for those who require an easy commute to surrounding towns and cities. The property has been substantially and sympathetically extended from the original design by our clients, with the new extension blending seamlessly with the traditional facade, whilst internally the accommodation oozes personality throughout its well proportioned living spaces and affords a flexible, well laid-out floor plan which is arranged over three inviting levels, and extends to over 2,235 square feet. 

One enters via the entrance hallway with its staircase to the first floor, and immediately senses the warm and inviting atmosphere which pervades throughout, proceeding through into the 20’ lounge, which is bathed in natural light via the plethora of windows, including a gorgeous bay window to the front elevation, whilst the feature fireplace with its traditional Victorian-style coal-effect gas fire provides an attractive focal point. A second reception room – a 12’ sitting room – ensures there are no family squabbles over the remote control, again benefitting from an abundance of light via the feature bay window, whilst the stunning feature fireplace with inset solid fuel burner conjures images of cold winter evenings huddled around a roaring fire. It is the fabulous 22’ open plan kitchen/diner/family room, however, which really is the jewel in the crown of this stunning home, being perfect for modern day living and a wonderfully sociable space in which the family can gather together or an ideal spot to host those intimate dinner parties, whilst uPVC double glazed patio doors provide direct access to the garden, ensuring even the most populous of gatherings can be accommodated, with guests able to spill out onto the patio; fitted with an extensive range of quality bespoke two tone wall and base units with contrasting white granite work surfaces, and including a central island unit with breakfast bar, traditional Belfast sink and a host of integrated appliances, including Rangemaster-style cooker with extractor canopy, microwave and dishwasher. The off-lying utility room, useful two piece cloakroom/WC and rear porch complete the ground floor accommodation. 

If one ventures up to the first floor, four of the five bedrooms will be revealed – three doubles and a single, the latter being ideal for use as a study, should one require some space to work from home, whilst the marvellous 15’ master bedroom is worthy of special mention, with a lovely dual aspect, en-suite dressing room – sure to score highly with the lady of the house – and a four piece en-suite bathroom. The remainder of the family are well catered for with the luxuriously appointed family bathroom, which is fitted with a six piece suite in classic white, comprising of twin vanity wash hand basins, close coupled WC, bidet, panelled jacuzzi bath and separate shower cubicle, whilst to the second floor, a further bright double bedroom will be discovered, which would be ideal for a teenager or guest bedroom. 

The generous plot is approached via wooden gates, leading to the substantial block-paved frontage, which provides off-road parking facilities for a number of vehicles, as well as access to the attached single garage, whilst there is a large garden to the side, comprising of an expansive lawn, with mature trees and shrubs to the perimeter, as well as a good-sized stone flagged patio area, which will be perfect for those impromptu family barbeques when the weather allows. We would highly recommend and internal inspection of this unique home to fully appreciate the size of the accommodation on offer
