Property description

Tenure: Leasehold

This three-bedroom property benefits from the Town House design which ingeniously gives all the facilities of a detached house without compromising on room sizes or amenities. With an integral garage and driveway it offers free and trouble free parking, which is a great asset to a property so close to the town centre.

The magnificent Victorian Gothic St Michaels and All Angels Parish Church is directly opposite giving a beautiful and peaceful backdrop from the lounge and one of the bedrooms. There are a myriad of facilities nearby including two railway stations one that sits on the West Coast Main Line and the other that links Wigan to Manchester, Southport and Kirby. (Kirkby connects to Liverpool Central). Wigan Infirmary, Haigh Hall Woodland Park and the magnificent Mesnes Park are all within a short driving distance.

The house itself can certainly be best described as a family home with three generous bedrooms, a lovely spacious lounge and a large kitchen with a dining area.

One of the bedrooms is located on the ground floor thus it could have many uses such as an office. Alternatively it may be especially attractive for a person with mobility difficulties, especially if the garage was to be converted into a studio flat.

At the rear of the property there is an excellent fully paved enclosed yard which can be used as a safe play area for children or an outdoor entertaining space for all the family and friends with plenty of room for a BBQ, tables and seating.

It should also be noted that in the last few years the owner as undergone an extensive exercise of replacing and renewing fixtures and fittings in many rooms and outside. This includes a new drive. a new boiler, rear fencing, curtain rails and vertical blinds. There is also a new loft ladder and fire alarms.

To summarise this attractive, versatile and well maintained property will tick many boxes because of its design and location. We strongly suggest that a viewing is essential to appreciate the many positive factors of this home.

Finally we have checked to see if it is possible to receive Fibre Optic Broadband at this address and it came up with a positive response from one major supplier.

The policy of Open House Estate Agents Wigan is to give both vendors and potential buyers good service therefore the telephone number shown is available 24/7. We try to respond to emails or requests for a viewing between 8.00am and 8.00pm seven days a week.
