This handsome, detached property has been mindfully designed and finely extended to a traditional Bretherton style providing a truly impressive family home offering spacious accommodation throughout. Holding a prime village location and having far reaching rural views to the rear, the property is also within a short walk of the renowned local school and easy reach of various commuter routes.
A solid iroko front door with leaded glass insert is set into the apex porch with slate roof, two side windows and mat well. Pendant lighting from the vaulted ceiling provides illumination and the sheltered inner door has a tinted and leaded glass insert which coordinated with other panels which decorate the property. The L-shaped hallway has two pendant lights, a traditional-style radiator and a staircase which rises and turns to the first floor. Oak flooring and deep skirting boards in the hall continue into the study having a window to the front and another traditional style radiator for warmth.
The stylishly presented dual aspect lounge has a window to the side and one to the front which has a Lancashire grit stone mullion detail plus pendant and wall lighting for evening ambiance. Sandstone lintels surround the ingle fireplace with stone hearth which houses a wood burning stove for cosy evenings and further warmth is provided by two traditional radiators.
The superb open-plan living-dining-kitchen is light and airy due to the three side windows, two-sets of bi-folding doors, a window to the rear and two skylights set into the vaulted ceiling. Natural light reflects on the travertine tiled flooring which stretches throughout the areas and deep skirting boards continue the traditional theme.
The kitchen is fitted with a wide range of Martin Moore bespoke, two-tone cabinets and drawer banks lined with oak and hand painted in shades of pale pistachio and oatmeal. Co-ordinating granite work tops surround and incorporate a Kohler enamel sink unit with swan neck mixer tap over, etched drainer to the side and stone window-ledge above. A mixture of pendant and inset spotlights has been utilised to highlight different areas, and a range of three pendant lights are cleverly arranged for the clearest view over the inset five-ring ceramic Siemens hob which also has an extractor fan over and complementary twin ovens below. Integrated into this elegant kitchen are a fridge-freezer and Neff automatic dishwasher, and the storage includes a walk-in larder with shelves and automatic light.
The adjacent utility room has both a window and stable-style door to the rear with a tinted and leaded glass insert. Two kitchen-complementary double larder cupboards provide additional storage and there is plumbing for an automatic washing machine. Granite-effect work surfaces are inset with an enamel sink unit, swan-neck mixer tap and single drainer. The travertine flooring follows into the shower room with a wall tiled wet-room style area, white pedestal wash hand basin and close-coupled w.c. There is a ceiling light and opaque windows to the rear and side. From the utility room there is a door into the integral double garage.
The first-floor landing features a tinted and leaded ceiling light, loft access point and a radiator. There is a spindle balustrade, a walk-in storage cupboard and oak doors lead to all rooms.
The light and spacious, triple aspect master bedroom has two windows to the front, two to the side and a French window to the rear leading to a decked balcony with glass balustrade giving superb rural views over adjoining farmland. The vaulted ceiling has six pendant lights suspended, there is ample space for clothes storage furniture, a wall-mounted television point and the three traditional-style radiators provide warmth.
The dark oak flooring in the master bedroom continues through a door into the en suite which has a Velux window to the rear and is wired for wall lights. The white three-piece suite comprises a vanity-set console wash hand basin with mirror cabinet over, w.c, and a fully-tiled corner shower cubicle. Towels can be warmed on the chrome ladder-style heated rail.
The family bathroom has a window to the rear, pendant lighting and is wired for wall lights. The white three-piece suite of generous proportions comprises a panelled bath with shower and screen over, pedestal wash hand basin with monobloc tap and a close-coupled w.c. A traditional style radiator has a chrome rail over which is heated for the comfort of drying and warming towels.
Bedroom two is triple-aspect with two windows to the side and a window to the front with stone mullion detail. Two pendant lights provide evening illumination and there is room for clothes storage furniture.
Bedroom three is dual-aspect with windows to the rear and side, a traditional style radiator and pendant lighting. A door opens to an en suite with light oak flooring, traditional radiator, mosaic-tiled corner shower unit, close-coupled w.c. and pedestal wash hand basin with mosaic splash tiling behind. There is pendant lighting and the en suite is wired for a vanity light.
Bedroom four is a good-sized single room with a window to the front, pendant light and traditional style radiator to warm it.
The property is set beyond a sturdy privet hedge and approached through stone gate posts to a flagged driveway frontage with cobble edged detail which provides parking for four or five cars and leads to an integral double garage with electronically controlled up-and-over doors, power and light. The property has been built in keeping with other similar properties in Bretherton and has been constructed of York hand made bricks, Welsh slate tiled roof and the windows have Lancashire grit stone lintels and mullions. Outside lantern lighting provides evening illumination and there is a corner shrub border. A broad side path leads to the rear garden which is mainly laid to lawn with stock fenced and panel fenced borders and overlooked by a specimen flowering cherry tree. A flagged patio provides an idyllic space for al fresco dining with views of expansive, far-reaching rural views across the adjoining farmland.
