Full description

Converted from a former school house this Georgian stone detached building has been extensively renovated and beautifully converted into a unique and very sizeable contemporary home in a lovely semi-rural location on the edge of Billinge with a large south facing rear garden overlooking open countryside and Winstanley Country Park.

When converting the house the clients stuck with tradition by retaining much of the beautiful stone facade to the front however have cleverly redesigned the house and all of the interior with a new access to the rear. The rear has been rebuilt with a contemporary rendered finish and an outside balcony/patio off the 1st floor which boasts sunny aspects and stunning southerly views.

The whole house has been finished to a high standard with high specification fixtures and fittings and the layout will definitely appeal to families with large open plan rooms featuring throughout. The kitchen is a very large room offering in excess of 460 square feet with zoned areas for cooking, eating and living. It has been fitted with a comprehensive range of high gloss wall and base units complete with a central island which houses a 5 ring gas hob and fitted base oven. French doors open out into the rear garden which incorporates a well-placed outdoor eating area. It is worth noting that there is a good sized utility room off the hallway. The modern light wood and glass panelled staircase offers access from a spacious entrance hall to the first floor landing which is of a good size and has a recessed office/study area. Two of the four good size bedrooms enjoy en-suite shower rooms with the main family bathroom being tiled in modern ceramics and fitted with a traditional white suite and a jacuzzi spa bath with over head shower. We feel that particular mention must be made to the master bedroom which has an opening door/window allowing access onto the good size roof terrace from which one can enjoy the beautiful views over the tended gardens and panoramic aspects across neighbouring agricultural and mature woodland.

Outside in addition to the beautiful manicured lawns which have well stocked flower beds and private patio areas there is a good size driveway allowing private parking. The driveway also gives access to the double lofted detached garages. Attached to the garages is an annex which is constructed to a residential standard and perfect as an office or gym although it would take little work to convert this into a self contained Granny Flat or Studio Apartment (subject to planning consent).
