Nestled within a small enclave of pretty canal-side cottages, this beautifully appointed two-bedroom, semi-detached stone property has an open plan contemporary style interior set over two floors. Arguably holding one of the most picturesque locations in the Appley Bridge area, Number 3 also enjoys stunning views over the Douglas Valley to the rear and is perfectly placed for both local amenities, schools and numerous commuter transport links.
The property is approached via the gravelled cul-de-sac, Canal Bank, with available residents parking along the way. A roll-top, low stone wall with inset timber gate surrounds the stone flagged frontage with flower and shrub borders, featuring a specimen Magnolia tree, and has an idyllic seating space overlooking the waterway.
The stone porch to the front has a solid timber, stable-style door which opens to the vestibule having windows to either side. An opening gives way to the beautifully appointed, contemporary style open-plan living dining kitchen with ceramic tiled flooring throughout the area. To the far end, bi-folding doors stretch across the width of the room allowing natural light to flow through and, for evening ambience, recessed down-lights are set into the coffered ceiling.
The kitchen area is fitted with a good range of ivory shaded cabinets, a drawer bank and a broad peninsula unit. Granite work tops surround and incorporate a one and a half bowl stainless steel sink unit with swan neck mixer tap which is set beneath the window to the rear. Also inset is a Miele four ring ceramic hob with complementary oven and grill below. Integrated appliances include a dishwasher, automatic washing machine, fridge and freezer.
The spacious living area has a luxurious feel projected by the elongated, pebble-style gas fire inset into the chimney breast and having a wall mounted television niche above and surround-sound from the four strategically placed ceiling speakers.
In between these two, and for great convenience, is the dining area with ample space for a six-seater table and chairs and still benefitting from the warmth from the fire place. A further stylish touch is the open-tread oak staircase with glass balustrade which rises and turns to the first floor from here.
The landing gives way to the two bedrooms and bathroom and has an opaque window to the side, inset spotlights and a loft access point. The well-proportioned main bedroom has French windows and a wrought iron Juliette balcony to the rear, the vaulted ceiling has recessed down-lights and there is a wall mounted television point opposite the bed space whilst one wall is lined with fitted wardrobes. The en suite has fully tiled walls and floor in a natural colour-way as the backdrop to the three-piece white suite comprising a one and a half-sized shower cubicle with sprinkler and hand showers, a vanity set wash hand basin with recessed mirrors and cabinet above and a wall mounted w.c. Illumination is provided by the rear window, recessed down-lights and over mirror lighting and there is a chrome ladder style heated towel rail to warm the towels.
Bedroom two is also a double room, has two windows with canal views, inset spotlights and also has two fitted double wardrobes plus fitted shelves to another wall.
The bathroom is fully tiled in natural shades and has a white three-piece suite comprising tile panelled bath with sprinkler and hand shower over plus a protective glass screen, vanity set wash hand basin with recessed mirrors and cabinet over, and a wall mounted w.c. alongside. Again, a chrome ladder style heated rail is on hand to warm the towels.
To the rear of the property is a flagged and spacious sun terrace, surrounded by rendered walls to provide seclusion and a contemporary water feature to provide tranquillity whilst enjoying the absolutely stunning rural views across the Douglas Valley and beyond. An outside tap is on hand to water the container planting which lines the walls.
