This rather grand row of Victorian terraced homes has no doubt been cast many wistful glances from admiring passers-by, their timeless elegance being a real tribute to a bygone era of character and tradition. This four bed mid-terraced example is no doubt the jewel in their crown, having been fastidiously maintained and improved under our client's ownership, the latest additions being an upgraded kitchen and bathroom, with the whole property presented in exemplary order throughout. Our client has taken great care to ensure all of the modern appointments expected nowadays have been carefully and sympathetically selected and blended with the abundance of characterful features on display throughout this period home to uphold the traditional feel and it really is a triumph. The location similarly excels, being highly desirable indeed, being set well back along the extremely well regarded Prescot Road and, therefore, only a short walk from beautiful open countryside, ensuring one can enjoy a relaxing stroll with the dogs after a stressful day in the office. The prestigious district of Aughton is renowned for its pleasing blend of prestige and character property, as well as its convenient benefits, ideally positioned for access to the abundance of shops and amenities within the historic market town of Ormskirk, offering an eclectic range of boutique shops and high street stores, whilst excellent transport links via the nearby M58 and the railway network, ensures ease of access to major cities such as Manchester and Liverpool, the latter being accessible within a short walk at Aughton Park. The handsome exterior is somewhat modest, belying a home of great depth, with only an internal inspection able to do justice to the size and wealth of accommodation on display, extending to in excess of a most impressive 1,565 square feet in total, with a thoughtful floor plan arranged over three inviting levels; entering via the welcoming entrance hallway with its staircase to the first floor, before proceeding through into the superb 15'lounge, which is positively overflowing with period features, including picture rail, decorative coving and a beautiful sash-style bay window which floods the room with natural light. The feature fireplace with its inset solid-fuel burner creates a warm and inviting ambiance, as well as a delightful focal point to the room, with a similar story within the 14' separate dining room, an ideal space for entertaining those intimate dinner parties, with the crackling burner providing the perfect soundtrack to one's evening. The open plan feel through to the 16' kitchen works very well indeed, being wonderfully sociable and ensuring the nominated chef for the evening needn't feel excluded from the fun whilst they are whipping up a storm. The kitchen has been recently comprehensively upgraded, being fitted with a range of quality high-gloss wall and base units in white, with contrasting laminated work surfaces and equipped with a number of integrated appliances, including two high-level electric ovens, five ring gas hob with extractor canopy, microwave and dishwasher, whilst there is a handy 11' separate utility room with off-lying cloakroom and guest WC, in which to keep the family laundry out of view. If one ventures up to the first floor, the feeling of endless space continues with three bright and well-proportioned bedrooms - two excellent doubles and a good-sized single, the two largest of which boast attractive display fireplaces, including the wonderfully spacious 15' master bedroom, complete with exposed floorboards. The family bathroom is also situated on this level, having been recently re-fitted with a modern three piece suite in classic white, comprising of WC, wall-mounted vanity wash hand basin and paneled P-shaped bath with overhead shower. To the second floor, one will discover a further double bedroom, complete with a bright dual aspect, which would be perfect as a guest room or for an older child, given the privacy it affords and the benefit of a walk-in wardrobe and three piece en-suite shower room. Externally, immediately to the rear is an enclosed courtyard, which will be ideal for keeping the dog contained and, beyond, accessible by a small private access road, is a parking space and a large detached single garage, providing plenty of space for storage or as a workshop. Behind the garage one will discover a secret garden plot, which is of a great size and a real delight, being mainly laid to lawn and encompassed by mature trees and shrubs, with one able to enjoy the private aspect from the paved patio, perhaps with a relaxing glass of wine or two in those warm summer evenings. There is also a garden to the front of the property, again mainly laid to lawn with mature shrubs to the borders. We would highly recommend an early inspection of this beautiful family home.
