Beautifully presented, this detached five-bedroom family home offers excellent accommodation to include three reception rooms, breakfast kitchen, uPVC sun room, shower room, utility room, family bathroom and en suite shower room to the master bedroom. Having two driveways to the front allows parking for four/five cars, there is a detached store and workshop/home office and the secluded, enclosed rear lawn garden enjoys far reaching rural views across the adjoining farmland.
A tiled open porch shelters the uPVC door with etched and leaded glass inset and matching side panels which opens into the vestibule, a spacious area to kick off shoes and having an exposed stone feature wall, tiled flooring and a pendant light. A further timber door with similar glazed panels opens to the broad hallway beyond also having a tiled floor, pendant light and radiator. White panelled doors open into each of the rooms including the almost open-plan living dining kitchen.
Cleverly designed, the kitchen is partially separated from the living area by a central wall and has an exit door to the side and a picture window overlooking the rear garden with stunning rural views beyond. The area is fitted with a good range of ivory shaded wall and base units having splash tiling between levels and including drawer banks and a breakfast bar. Oak work surfaces surround and incorporate a one and a half bowl black sink unit with mixer tap and waste disposal unit. There is space for a range-style cooker having a suspended chimney-style extractor fan above. There is an integrated dishwasher, space for a larder style fridge freezer, and two radiators warm the area.
The oak flooring here continues into the lounge which has two windows overlooking the front garden, both fitted with plantation shutters, plus recessed downlighting and two wall lights for evening ambience. The carved pine Adam’s-style fireplace with black granite inset surrounds a gas coals fire and adds to the cosiness, along with the radiators, and there is a television point alongside. Also from the lounge, the open-tread staircase rises to the first-floor landing.
Just off the kitchen is the uPVC sun room with recessed downlighting and LED wall lights. The terracotta-shaded ceramic tiled flooring gives a practical finish when entering to room via the garden door and the room is warmed by a wall mounted electric heater in chillier times.
Across the hallway, the dining room has a window, with plantation shutters, to the front plus a pendant light and wall lights for evening-time. The oak laminate flooring gives an attractive appearance and there is a painted Adam’s style fire with granite inset and hearth housing a pebble-style gas fire for warmth and atmosphere during gatherings. Two doors lead off from here and give way to the study and the utility room.
The study has a window to the rear with plantation shutters, a ceiling light and a radiator. The utility room also has a rear window, ceiling light, tiled floor and a part glazed door to the side garden. There is plumbing for a washing machine and space for a tumble dryer.
Finally, on the ground floor and fully tiled in a burnt umber shade, the shower room has a contemporary three-piece white suite comprising a large, glazed shower cubicle with sprinkler and hand attachments, a wall mounted wash basin with mono-block tap, and close coupled w.c. There is an opaque rear window, recessed downlighting and extractor fan.
The first-floor landing and inner hall have pendant lights and give way to the family bathroom plus each of the five bedrooms which are fitted with plantation shutters to the windows, have pendant lights and are warmed by radiators.
The good-sized master bedroom overlooks the front garden and has a walk-in double wardrobe with light. The en suite is fully tiled in natural shades and fitted with a three-piece white suite comprising sliding door cubicle with Mira Sport power shower, a wall mounted wash basin with vanity light above and shaver point to the side, and a close coupled w.c. A chrome ladder style heated rail warms the towels and there is an opaque side window and extractor fan.
Bedroom four is a further double room which also overlooks the front. Bedroom two, with laminate flooring, and bedroom three, with a wall mounted television point, are both double rooms overlooking the rear whilst bedroom five is a single room with laminate flooring and also overlooks the rear.
Each of these bedrooms are served by the family bathroom, fully tiled in natural shades and forming the backdrop to the contemporary white suite comprising a tile panelled bath with shower and screen over, a wall mounted vanity cabinet with wash basin and mono-block tap, and close coupled w.c. There is an extractor fan, a chrome ladder-style heated towel rail adds the warmth, recessed downlighting illuminates and a wall mounted mirror cabinet stores the luxuries.
The property is set beyond a low retaining wall topped by decorative wrought iron railings with matching gates to both the entrances of the two Tarmacadam driveways offering combined parking for four/five cars, a turning space and a lawn area. Container planting embellishes the frontage and there is room for a couple of benches from which to watch the world go by and some beautiful sunsets.
The rear garden is fenced to three sides, has mature shrubs borders and a central lawn. A flagged patio area provides space for al fresco dining beneath a timber frame gazebo and offers a perfect spot for relaxing with a glass of wine and/or good book. A stone built detached outbuilding with power and light offers excellent storage for garden tools and furniture as well as being partially wall panelled and having laminate flooring to create either a workshop or even a home office if needed.
The location of this property is ideal for the renowned Croston schools, countryside walks and views, the well-stocked garden centres’ close by, easy commuter route access via Eccleston, Leyland and Chorley and, of course, the numerous charming watering-holes and eateries we are blessed with in this area.
