This impressively proportioned four bed detached property affords the perfect blend of size and location, extending to in excess of 1,570 square feet of accommodation arranged over two inviting levels. This modern property is situated within a small residential development of varying styles of family homes, within a short distance of the thriving village centre of Standish. At its heart, the beautiful Parish Church of St. Wilfrid, the only Grade I listed building within Wigan, whilst the bustling village centre provides a host of local shops and amenities. The property is ideally situated close to a number of highly regarded schools at both primary and secondary level, an important consideration with any home of this type, whilst the older members of the family are also well catered for, with close proximity to the M6 motorway ensuring major commercial centres such as Manchester, Liverpool and Preston are within a reasonable commute. The property itself benefits from a well laid out and flowing floor plan, which provides very well proportioned living spaces throughout, with the original design having been enhanced with the marvellous addition of a 19’ sun lounge-style sitting room to the rear, which adds a huge amount of flexibility to the already generous accommodation. One enters the property via the welcoming reception hallway, with its staircase to the first floor and convenient two piece cloakroom/WC, and proceeds through into the open plan lounge/dining room, which at 19’ is impressively proportioned and more than adequate to accommodate dual purposes with its inset coal-effect living flame gas fire provides an attractive focal point. Two sets of glazed double doors can be opened through into the marvellous sun lounge to create a fantastic space for those more populous gatherings, and providing an even more spacious open plan layout, with a lovely light and bright space with direct access onto the garden via two sets of uPVC double glazed doors. The 21’ breakfast kitchen is large enough to accommodate a breakfast bar for more informal dining, and is fitted with a comprehensive range of wall and base units in cream with laminated wooden work surfaces, and equipped with an integrated double oven, four ring gas hob and extractor hood. If one ventures up to the first floor, four good-sized bedrooms will be revealed, all of which feature built-in storage cupboards, with the master suite also boasting a three-piece suite en-suite shower room. The remainder of the family are catered for by the main family bathroom, which is fully tiled and fitted with a three-piece suite in classic white, comprising of vanity wash hand basin, WC and panelled bath with overhead shower. Externally, the property has a small low maintenance garden to the front elevation, with the block paved double driveway providing off-road parking facilities for a number of vehicles and access to the integral single garage. The rear garden is mainly laid to lawn, with a paved patio providing an ideal spot for those frequent family barbeques, or perhaps a glass of wine or two after a long day in the office. Only by an internal inspection can the size of this super family home be truly appreciated.
