Full description

For those searching for a traditional home brimming with charm and character, this substantial stone-fronted semi-detached residence provides an ideal opportunity. Constructed circa 1900, the property infuses a real feeling of history and grandeur from the first step across the threshold, with high ceilings and decorative plasterwork to mention just a few of the delightful character features and, whilst the grandly proportioned living spaces would benefit from modernisation, they have been beautifully cared for throughout our client’s substantial tenure, and provide the freedom for a new owner to create a bespoke home to their own individual specification, with their own taste and style.

The property is located on the border of Whittle-le-Woods and Heapey, two of the most desirable areas in the district and on the fringe of beautiful open countryside, ensuring one is never short of somewhere to enjoy a relaxing evening stroll, yet despite its rural credentials, one is far from isolated, with junction 8 of the M61 within a short drive, ensuring major commercial centres such as Manchester and Preston are within a reasonable commute. Chorley town centre is similarly within easy reach, complete with its abundance of shops and amenities, whilst the younger members of the family simply need to cross the road to school, with St. Chad’s Catholic Primary School virtually on the doorstep. 

In addition to the sizeable living accommodation which extends to in excess of 1,215 square feet, to the rear of the property one will discover a range of outbuildings, which include a 15’ utility/workshop, as well as two garden stores. One enters the property via the entrance hallway with its staircase to the first floor, and proceeds through into the fabulous 16’ lounge, complete with its beautiful parquet flooring, continuing through into the 18’ open plan kitchen/diner, which is a wonderfully sociable space when one is entertaining friends for dinner, with the nominated chef for the evening not needing to be excluded from the fun. 

The kitchen is fitted with a range of wall and base units, whilst there is an off-lying uPVC double glazed porch providing access to the rear. If one ventures up to the first floor, two excellent double bedrooms will be revealed, including the simply vast 18’ master bedroom, as well as the bathroom, which is fitted with a traditional three piece suite in white, comprising of pedestal wash hand basin, WC and panelled bath. 

Externally, the property is garden-fronted with an enclosed courtyard to the rear, whilst further highlights include uPVC double glazing and gas central heating. Available with the benefit of no onward chain
