'Ardlea' is an attractive detached residence set in 0.7 acres of mature, landscaped gardens and is virtually equidistant from the villages of Croston and Bretherton. Providing excellent family accommodation, this generously spacious home includes three well-proportioned reception rooms, a contemporary style breakfast kitchen with linked conservatory, timber built sun-room, master bedroom with split level en-suite plus dressing room and three further double bedrooms.
The uPVC front door with decoratively leaded inset and matching side panels opens into the naturally bright and airy, L-shaped hallway. Also lit by four wall lights, there is bordered Karndean flooring and an oak-spindle staircase to the first floor.
A door to the left opens into the elegantly presented sitting room with decorative coving, a bay window to the front, a pendant light and two wall lights. For evening ambience there is a composite stone fire surround and hearth with inset log burning stove and having a television point to one side.
Symmetrically placed off the hallway and also having a bay window to the front is the good-sized family room with central pendant light, laminate flooring and a further television point.
Further along the hall, the triple aspect principal lounge has two patio doors to side decking, two windows to the front and French windows to the sun-room with pendant and wall lights for evening-time. An ingle fireplace with slate hearth houses a log burning stove and has an inset timber beam above. There is a television point alongside the fireplace and discretely placed to one corner timber-built bar area.
French windows open into the timber-built sun room which has an exposed stone wall with display niche, recessed downlighting and double doors to the rear terrace.
The hub of the home is definitely the living-dining-kitchen which opens into a spacious uPVC conservatory with central combined light and fan, wall mounted television point and French windows opening to the rear terrace.
The kitchen is fitted with an extensive range of cream-coloured cabinets and drawers with pewter handles plus a central breakfast bar and having splash tiling between levels. Black and amber granite work-surfaces and upstands surround and incorporates an etched drainer to the side of the inset stainless steel one and half bowl sink unit with a swan neck mixer tap and hand spray. Also inset is a De Dietrich five-ring induction hob with brushed steel remote controlled extractor fan suspended over and an eye-level Siemens double oven, grill and combined microwave are set close by. Integrated appliances include an automatic dishwasher, a larder fridge and freezer. The pale porcelain tiled flooring follows through an opening between the cabinets and leads to a dual aspect dining area with bay window to the front, recessed downlighting and a pendant light over the table space.
From the main hallway is the conveniently located utility room with exit door to the rear garden and recessed downlights. Kitchen complementary units and work-surfaces are fitted with an inset circular stainless steel sink unit and swan neck mixer tap, and having space for a condensing dryer and plumbing for an automatic washing machine. The Baxi gas central heating combination boiler is also housed here.
The ground floor and spacious bedroom three has garden views, a pendant light and is fitted with a range of wardrobes with sliding doors. It is conveniently located next to the fully tiled cloakroom with a contemporary style three-piece suite comprising cubicle with a Galaxy Serene shower unit, pedestal wash hand basin and a close coupled w.c., all lit by recessed downlighting and an etched window to the rear.
Velux windows on the landing give open rural views over adjoining farmland. Lit by three ceiling lights, there is also laminate flooring, a loft access point and a linen cupboard having sliding doors.
The dual aspect, split-level master suite also enjoys rural views to front and rear and is lit by a pendant light and ceiling lights. The bedroom is fitted with an extensive range of wardrobes, drawer banks, dressing table, night-stands and cabinets which continue through to the adjacent dressing room with a further Velux window and a door to the fully tiled en suite further Velux and a side window panel. The white suite comprises a walk-in spa shower cubicle with granite seat, vanity set wash hand basin and a close coupled w.c. In addition, there is laminate flooring, extractor fan and a white ladder-style heated towel rail.
Bedrooms two and four are further double-size rooms – with windows to front and side respectively - both have pendant lights, a range of fitted wardrobes and laminate flooring.
The fully tiled family bathroom has a Velux window to the front and recessed downlights providing additional lighting when necessary. The contemporary fitments include a figure eight bath with protective screen and power jet shower over, a circular ceramic wash bowl on a granite shelf with shaver point close by, and a close coupled w.c., with a tall mirrored radiator finishing the styling.
High, automated wrought iron double gates open to the broad driveway parking area and a corresponding side gate gives access to the exterior utility area. The lawn area to the front has formerly been granted planning permission for a double garage and adjoins the landscaped gardens with stone edged pathways meandering through and past the side gravel garden with raised ornamental Koi carp pond and drawing you towards the large decked seating area to the side of the house. This area is edged by mature shrubs and trees and incorporates several quiet retreats. The rear garden is bounded by trellis and picket fencing making the raised sun terrace, directly outside the house, the perfect spot to enjoy a glass of wine and soak up the superb rural views. A cleverly designed shed (4’ x 36’) runs along the side boundary to provide ideal storage for garden equipment.
