Property description

Tenure: Please confirm if this is a freehold or leasehold property with Reeds Rains

**SENSIBLE OFFERS CONSIDERED** Resting in a private position, situated within its own secluded grounds of approximately 3 1/2 acres to include a paddock and twin stables, Whitegate Fold Cottage is tucked away behind remote control wrought iron gates at the head of a private road, the land sweeping down to the stream at Whitegates wood. This beautiful, bespoke detached residence oozes charm and character, retaining a wealth of characteristic features from bygone times. In need of some updating the property would benefit from a scheme of modernisation and/or extensions (subject to the relevant planning permissions being obtained) but offers potential to create a truly spectacular home in a fabulous location. The accommodation is well proportioned throughout, offering generous room sizes and light and airy living spaces. The ground floor comprises; entrance hall, lounge, sitting room, dining room, fitted kitchen, large utility room and a ground floor WC. To the first floor is the main family bathroom and four double bedrooms - the master benefiting from an en-suite shower room. Externally the magnificent plot is extremely private, approached via a private road and accessed via wrought iron gates this leads to a large gravel driveway providing off road parking for a number of vehicles, leading to an attached double garage and a large car port providing an ideal space for caravan/boat storage. There are fabulous, natural/wildlife gardens linking charming, separately themed areas. There is a vast lawn which provides a great space for children to play and a large flagged patio area offering the perfect space for summer BBQs and enjoying the warm summer evenings. An adjacent paddock has a stable and tack room and measures approximately 2 1/2 acres and benefits from it's own access from Freemans Lane offering convenient access for horsebox or trailer. The property is encompassed by beautiful countryside within the sought after semi rural village of Charnock Richard - you would certainly not believe you are only a short drive away from the M6/M61/M65 motorways and only approximately 3 miles from Chorley Town Centre with its array of amenities and well regarded schooling. Viewing is highly recommended to fully appreciate this superb home - call today to arrange your appointment. Awaiting EPC.
