Full description

Never judge a book by its cover is a frequently used phrase, however it is certainly relevant in the case of this substantial detached Freehold home, its characterful exterior belying a home of such depth and quality, that it simply must be viewed to be appreciated. An internal inspection will reveal in excess of a truly vast 3,195 square feet of accommodation in total, with few homes, if any, able to compete with its size, and certainly not at this price bracket in such a highly desirable location. The expansive floor plan affords a practical arrangement of space, which is just perfect for the lifestyle of a modern family, yet offers endless potential in terms of its use, able to be adapted with minimal expense, to create accommodation for a disabled/elderly relative or perhaps those who may require some space to run a business, such as a nursery, subject to the necessary consents, but being wonderfully child-orientated. This historic property really is a landmark home, being steeped in local history, having been originally the village school and, in later years, the local Post Office, before being sympathetically remodelled, extended and converted to the residential dwelling it is today. Despite its evolution over the years, its charm and character have remained, giving this home real personality and individuality, both externally and internally, whilst being maintained to the highest possible standard by our client, with the immaculate interior being presented in absolutely pristine condition. The location is equally family-friendly, being situated along this pretty, leafy lane at the heart of the highly regarded village of Charnock Richard, one of the region’s most sought-after villages and an area which has demonstrated itself to be a consistent attraction to prospective buyers, with its strong sense of community, and all that it is able to offer its inhabitants, being a particularly strong pull for families. Particular points of note are the pleasant country public houses within strolling distance, excellent schools, convenient motorway links, and close proximity to the plentiful shops and amenities within the bustling market town of Chorley, as well as beautiful local countryside and a number of local beauty spots, such as Astley Park and Yarrow Valley Country Park, which are perfect for those relaxing evening strolls with the dog. Internally, one cannot fail to be impressed with the space on offer here from the first step across the threshold into the fabulous circa 605 square foot open plan living room, which is a wonderfully sociable and flexible living space for all the family to gather together, brimming with light via the plethora of windows. However, this vast space could very easily be partitioned to create a number of smaller rooms, if so desired, with minimal expense, which will be particularly useful should one be looking for a property to adapt to accommodate an elderly or disabled relative, or simply a teenager requiring their own privacy.

One proceeds via the inner hallway, with its characterful spindled staircase to the first floor, through to the 15’ kitchen/diner, with its handy 14’ utility room, which is fitted with a range of cherry wood wall and base units, with contrasting laminated work surfaces and equipped with an integrated double electric oven and five ring gas hob with extractor canopy, with the main ground floor accommodation being completed by a stylish bathroom, complete with mosaic tiling and fitted with a four piece suite in white, comprising of WC, wall-mounted wash hand basin, tiled bath and separate shower cubicle. If one ventures up to the first floor, the state of impress continues with the large landing providing access to a superb 16’ lounge, complete with feature fireplace and bathed in light via the uPVC double glazed French doors which will be most useful in the summer months, although this could be utilised as a further bedroom, if required. A further four good-sized bedrooms are also located to this floor, all of which are bright and appealing, as well as a luxuriously appointed bathroom, which is fully tiled and fitted with a five piece modern suite in white, comprising of WC, pedestal wash hand basin, bidet, two person jacuzzi bath and separate shower cubicle. Externally, much of the good-sized plot is occupied by the substantial circa 1,000 square foot garage, affording real flexibility of use; presently utilised as a fabulous extension to the living space, complete with kitchen facilities and home office, although it could be utilised for a wide range of purposes, including a gymnasium, playroom for the little ones – able to be used come rain or shine, or simply for storage or secure parking. Should this space not be required or should one desire more of a traditional garden, our client has received very reasonable quotes for the complete or partial de-construction of the garage. To the side of the property, the gated access provides access to a garden store and WC, as well as a patio area, which will be ideal for those family barbeques when the sun is shining or perhaps a relaxing glass of wine after a stressful day in the office. We cannot stress enough the importance of an internal inspection to appreciate all that this fabulous home has to offer.
