The Spinney offers such a fabulous private setting, with large mature gardens and the electric gated entrance setting the tone of what’s to come when you finally walk through the front door.  But what an approach and façade this home has, so unique being a period, one off build.

 The large entrance porch is just ideal for all your coats and shoes, with the beautiful internal entrance door awaiting to let you through to what’s beyond!  The entrance hall here is like no other, far reaching, with an astonishing fireplace with hand carved surround and seating to either side, all finished off with inset internal glazed windows. It’s just a joy to behold and, like us, I am sure you will spend a few moments to take it all in, wood block flooring, detailed beamed ceilings, and the space! Well, you decide how best to use it, but I have to say the current arrangement of both seating areas and dining works perfectly.

 The spacious lounge offers yet more character with its large leaded windows and beamed ceiling, whilst the open fireplace adds a cosy back drop to the room. The study across the hallway offers similar proportions and features to the lounge, here our current sellers use the space as a study, however you could use the reception room for a formal dining area, or even another sitting room.  The master bedroom is located on the ground floor, giving you massive flexibility, and comes complete with built in wardrobes and a spacious en suite, with walk-in shower and spa bath, all of which are enhanced by polished tiled floor and walls.

 The kitchen is a real treat for the chef within you, having been recently been re modelled with a gorgeous arrangement of deep blue and grey units, all providing an abundance of storage, with quartz work tops over. A fabulous island provides breakfast bar seating, again with quartz work top, whilst integral appliances include black fronted AEG ovens, induction hob and wine cooler.  Leading off the kitchen comes both a walk-in pantry, plus a fantastic utility room with more base and wall units, as well as space for further white goods. There is also a downstairs WC / cloakroom, a walk-in airing cupboard and a boiler room.

 To the first floor, the landing has doors that lead off into the remaining four bedrooms, all of which are a great size.  One side of the house creates a fabulous guest suite to offer bedroom, dressing area and shower room, as well as a bathroom.  The more I walked around the first floor you can see how flexible the rooms and space could be utilised, but best you walk around and let it show you how you need it to work for your own lifestyle.

 Outside, we have touched on the entrance via electric gates, which open onto the extensive tarmac driveway, allowing for ample parking and leading to the ‘tandem’ garage.  The gardens are established with a variety of beautiful mature trees, which give you privacy within the garden. There is a raised patio seating, which is ideal for BBQs and family gatherings, plus decking with a hot tub, plus a shed, a greenhouse, and a summer house for when you need some external covered space.

We really do suggest that you take a good look at the video we have created for this house, to give you an even better insight into just why you should take a proper look around this magnificent home.

The Seller's View

Living in The Spinney is a dream. A beautiful, spacious house in a secluded setting that makes you feel you could be anywhere. In fact, you are never more than a mile away from main amenities: the shops, bars and restaurants of Hoole, the city centre, the Greenway and Canalside, good schools and two railway stations. On top of that, there is a park next door, and the motorway network is less than two miles away. Perfection.
