Full description

This magnificent double-fronted period detached residence simply oozes grandeur and splendour on a scale which is almost beyond compare in the area, boasting an eventful history, not least having spent a considerable period of time as a doctor’s surgery. The property is nestled amidst beautiful gardens with the added benefit of a large two storey outbuilding with power and water, circa 875 square feet, which incorporates the double garage and which, in another era, would have been where the pony and trap were housed, but which could now be utilised for a number of uses, such as a workshop or perhaps ripe for conversion to further accommodation, if so required, and subject to the usual consents and approvals. 

The property is located in the convenient locality of Whelley, only a short distance from thriving town centre of Wigan, with its diverse range of high street stores, eclectic bars and eateries, which attract visitors from across the region. Excellent local schools are within easy reach – always an important consideration for any family home – whilst easy access to the motorway network ensures the commuter can access a number of major commercial centres with ease. This unique home has been lovingly maintained throughout our client’s substantial tenure, and offers circa 3,590 square feet of living accommodation arranged over three levels, including two useful cellar rooms, with an expansive floor plan which offers impressively proportioned living spaces throughout and an abundance of original character features which exude the splendour of the era, entering via the entrance porch and proceeding through into the rather grand reception hallway, with its delightful spindled staircase to the first floor, and one immediately appreciates the feeling of endless space. 

The property affords no less than five reception rooms, with the 17’ main lounge being truly a joy, with its dual windows and feature fireplace, whilst the off-lying 16’ sun room has a plethora of windows which bathe the room in light, and boasts double doors opening onto the garden, which will be invaluable in the summer months. The 18’ dining room offers a vast space for those sophisticated soirees or intimate dinner parties, with a lovely dual aspect, whilst there is also a bright, cosy 13’ morning room and a study with a handy off-lying cloakroom/WC, which will be ideal for those requiring some space to work from home. The breakfast kitchen completes the ground floor accommodation and, at 18’ in length, is large enough to accommodate a dining suite for more informal dining, such as a swift bite to eat before the school run; fitted with a comprehensive range of wall and base units in Oak with contrasting laminated work surfaces, and equipped with an integrated high level double electric oven, four ring gas hob and extractor canopy., central heating and alarm.

If one ventures up to the first floor, the attractive galleried landing provides access to the four large double bedrooms, all of which are exceedingly bright spaces which provide ample space for the growing family, a three piece shower room, and the main family bathroom, fitted with a three piece suite comprising of WC, pedestal wash hand basin and panelled bath with overhead shower. 

Externally, the property occupies a delightful plot with sizeable gardens which are a horticultural delight, being wonderfully mature with an abundance of trees and shrubs, lawned area, paved seating areas and a pond, whilst there is ample off-road parking facilities for a number of vehicles, including the double garage with electric up-and-over door. We would highly recommend an internal inspection of this unique home to appreciate the size of the accommodation, and the charm and character it has to offer.
