This individual detached home is set on a desirable lane in the village of Mawdesley and offers charming accommodation which is well presented throughout. Briefly, the accommodation comprises two excellent reception rooms plus a superb dining kitchen, separate utility, cloakroom, three/four double bedrooms - one with en suite, one with a loft room - and a family bathroom plus planning consent to extend further. Sitting almost central to the plot, there is ample room for driveway parking, an attached double garage and beautiful, secluded, split-level rear garden.
The glass panelled door with matching side panels opens to the spacious and light hallway with recessed downlighting set into the tall ceiling and a Neville Johnson glass balustrade staircase with oak handrail rising to the first floor. A radiator warms arrival and the wood effect tiled flooring gives a contemporary finish. There are panelled doors off to each of the rooms, including the cloakroom which has an opaque front window, ceiling light, radiator and a two-piece white suite.
The lounge is well proportioned, light, bright and beautifully presented. There is a window and French windows to the rear garden and, for evening-time, the room is lit by a central pendant light and five wall and/or picture lights. The focal point of the room is the fireplace with slate tiled hearth housing a Jotul log burning stove and a television point is positioned to one side.
The second reception room is also a good size, has a window to the side, a pendant light and a radiator. This room works well as a home office but could easily be used as bedroom four being in close proximity to the cloakroom.
The spacious dining kitchen has bleached wood flooring running through both areas, there is a window to the front and the dining area has a bay French window to the rear with windows to either side. The kitchen is fitted with a range of hand painted cabinets in Farrow & Ball complementary colours with white sparkle Silestone worktops over and having an etched drainer alongside the inset stainless steel sink unit. A modern, dual-fuel three-oven Aga provides cooking facilities and integrated appliances include a Bosch automatic dishwasher, microwave and larder fridge. In addition, a bespoke and attractive hand painted cabinet in Farrow and Ball complementary colours, designed and installed by renowned local furniture maker, Matthew Marsden, and provides further excellent storage. The dining room provides more than ample space for a dining table and chairs plus a sofa whilst two radiators warm the room which is lit by two ceiling lights and three wall lights.
The separate laundry room with laminate flooring has a door to the garden, a window to the side and a personal door to the garage. The kitchen-complementary cabinets have an integrated stainless steel sink unit, washing machine and tumble dryer.
The landing is lit by a window to the front and a pendant light, and the glass balustrade overlooks the stairwell. Panelled doors, once again, give access to the rooms off.
The master bedroom overlooks the rear garden and views beyond, has a pendant light to the semi-vaulted ceiling and a radiator. There are fitted wardrobes to one wall and ample space for further storage furniture. The adjacent en suite has a Velux window, recessed down-lights and laminate flooring. The suite includes a wall panelled shower with sliding door, a close coupled w.c. and a vanity cabinet with white granite surface and ceramic wash bowl having a wall mounted tap above whilst a graphite shaded heated rail warms the towels.
Bedrooms two and three are both spacious double rooms, overlook the rear and front gardens respectively, have pendant lights to the semi vaulted ceilings, radiators and space for furniture of your choice. Bedroom two also has a staircase leading up to the carpeted loft room with two Velux windows and eaves storage cupboard. This room would create a further study or home office space or simply a games room for a teenager.
The contemporary family bathroom has an opaque window to the front, two ceiling lights and recessed down-lights. The natural shaded ceramic floor tiling is also strategically placed to the walls beyond the three-piece white suite comprising a panelled bath, vanity set wash basin with mono-block tap, close coupled w.c. and step-in shower with glass folding door.
The property sits beyond a low stone wall giving vehicular access to the pebbled driveway which provides ample parking for several cars and leads to the attached double garage with two up and over doors, power and light. The drive is edged by several specimen trees and an Indian stone flagged approach rises two steps and leads to the front door. The attached path continues around the perimeter of the property via two side gates giving access to the rear garden. An extensive Indian stone flagged sun terrace stretches across the rear elevation of the house - which is fitted with composite weather boarding - and provides an idyllic al fresco dining area. A path leads off to a further patio, placed to catch the morning sun and sitting alongside the slate chipped parterre area planted with box trees and lavender.
A stone-built retaining wall is built around the raised lawn and, beyond and slightly higher still, is the well-stocked herbaceous border overlooked by a copper-shaded acer for structure.
NB Planning permission has been granted for a further extension above the garage to create a new master suite to include a spacious bedroom area, en suite shower room and separate dressing room. The application also allows for a more permanent staircase to the loft room off bedroom three. Plans are available to view on the Chorley Borough Council Planning Portal using reference number Ref.
