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 semi-detached cottage, its characterful exterior belying a home of such size, that it simply must be viewed to be appreciated. If one is searching for something a little more specialised, an individual home occupying a unique place in the market, then this property could well suit one's niche requirements, with an internal inspection revealing in excess of a truly vast 3,015 square feet of accommodation in total, with few homes able to compete with its size or flexibility, providing boundless potential. As well as an abundance of charming original features, such as exposed beams and rustic fireplaces, the property currently affords the option of a self-contained annex to the first floor, complete with its own private entrance, which would be ideal for an older child who requires their own living space, but with the reassurance of being within the family unit. However, if not required for independent living, this ancillary space could simply be incorporated into the main house as an impressive master bedroom suite, utilised as a work space or even as an independent rental opportunity. The property has been under the ownership of our client's family for decades, having been a lovingly cared for home and nestled away along this quiet, leafy lane within the beautiful village of Heskin, renowned for its picturesque local countryside and peaceful way of life. This highly desirable location is nestled between the equally well regarded villages of Wrightington, Charnock Richard and Eccleston, the latter being graced with plentiful amenities and the modern Carrington Centre, with its diverse array of shops. Further points of note are the extremely good schools and transport links, which are always important considerations with any family home of this type, with one able to return to their rural retreat of an evening, to partake of a relaxing walk with the dogs over the local countryside. One enters via the 15' entrance hallway with its spindled staircase to the first floor and which is large enough to accommodate a study/seating area, before proceeding through into the open plan, split level 17' lounge and 15' dining room, which is a wonderfully sociable environment for the family or entertaining space, complete with a feature stone fireplace with inset log-effect gas fire and patio doors through to the conservatory, which is an ideal space in which to relax whilst enjoying the pleasant aspect over the garden. The cottage-like feel is felt no more so than in the 18' sitting room, which boasts delightful rustic features, including a beamed ceiling and brick-built fireplace with inset solid-fuel burner, which conjures images of frosty winter evenings huddled around a roaring fire, whilst the bright dual aspect windows afford an abundance of natural light. The 16' kitchen is fitted with a range of Oak-effect wall and base units with contrasting laminated work surfaces, whilst there is also a separate 12' breakfast room for more informal dining, as well as a handy off-lying two piece cloakroom/WC. To the first floor, one will discover three initial double bedrooms, as well as the generously proportioned family bathroom, which is fitted with a five piece suite, comprising of WC, pedestal wash hand basin, bidet, panelled bath and separate shower cubicle. The annex is also located to the first floor, accessible via the main living accommodation or via its own private entrance with an independent staircase, comprising of a 21' lounge, opening into the dining area, kitchenette 13' bedroom and four piece bathroom. Externally, the property has a small garden-frontage, with a very sizeable garden to the rear, which is mainly laid to lawn, with mature trees and shrubs to the perimeter, which afford a great deal of privacy. The calming oasis also includes an attractive water feature, a large block-paved patio area for those frequent summer barbeques and a useful detached garage, which could be utilised for a number of purposes, such as a studio or storage area. The block-paved driveway provides off-road parking facilities, as well as giving access to the integral over-sized single garage, which is suitable for secure parking. We cannot stress enough the importance of an internal inspection to appreciate all that this home has to offer.
