Occupying an enviable position within this highly desirable district, this handsome, five bedroom period detached residence oozes elegance and grandeur. The property rests proudly within its substantial private plot, with its characterful exterior infusing a sense of tradition and heritage, yet belying a truly modern home, having been comprehensively upgraded to an exceptional standard by our clients, with the use of quality fixtures and fittings throughout. All the modern appointments demanded in the modern era are catered for and blended seamlessly with a wealth of period features, such as sash windows, ceiling roses and coving, creating an opulent, yet authentic, home which cannot fail to impress.
Offering close to 4,000 square feet of sumptuous family accommodation, the property offers an expansive floor plan arranged over two floors, which flows perfectly from one impressively proportioned room to the next. With a home of such depth, it would be an almost impossible task to pick out one particular feature which makes it so special; the sunroom with its glazed feature wall with no less than three patio windows does an exceptional job of bringing the outdoors in, and is the perfect vantage point to survey the fabulous grounds. This flexible space could be utilised for a variety of uses – a second sitting room, a home gym or perhaps an area in which to savour a few glasses of champagne whilst relaxing in the hot tub. Fortunately, one doesn’t have to decide, and could simply do all three, as in the case of our clients, such is the size of this 32’ space. Perhaps it would be the marvellous games room which could be the definitive highlight, located to the front of the property and flooded with natural light via the four large sash windows, creating the ultimate space for entertaining during those frequent house parties. This 28’ space is sure to be every gentleman’s dream, being large enough to accommodate both a pool table and a comfortable seating area with an attractive feature fireplace, whilst there is also a spectacular bar area, which could put many professional establishments to shame. The lady of the house is equally spoiled, however, with an opulent master bedroom, unashamedly luxurious in terms of its proportions, and boasting a balcony, 14’ en-suite dressing room and a four piece en-suite bathroom, comprising of WC, pedestal wash hand basin, panelled bath and separate shower cubicle with luxury multi-jet electric shower.
For many though, the choice would be a simple one after viewing the magnificent open plan breakfast kitchen/dining room, which is a real lesson in contemporary living; a wonderfully sociable space and the quintessential hub of the home in which to bring all generations of the family together. The kitchen is comprehensively fitted with a range of high gloss, two-tone wall and base units with inset lighting, complimentary tiling and black granite work surfaces, and equipped with an extensive range of integrated appliances, including double electric oven, five ring gas hob with overhead extractor canopy, dishwasher and washing machine. A central island provides additional storage, as well as a useful breakfast bar, creating an ideal spot to grab a quick bite to eat before the school run, whilst the formal dining room, with its delightful feature glazed wall, just yearns for those more formal family dinners, catching up on the day whilst enjoying the view over the stunning rear garden.
In its entirety, the accommodation comprises of entrance hall, 25’ lounge, breakfast kitchen, open plan dining room, cloakroom/WC, sun room, games room and a 17’ conservatory, whilst to the first floor there are five double bedrooms, four of which have en-suite facilities, with the master bedroom also boasting a dressing room.
Externally, the property is approached via electrically operated wrought-iron gates which reveal a large courtyard area with ornamental lighting and low maintenance planted borders, and providing access to the attached double garage, whilst the stunning woodland oasis to the rear offers endless privacy and a real feeling of seclusion, being mainly laid to lawn with mature trees and shrubs to the perimeter, and with a superb raised decked area which is sure to be popular for those frequent barbeques in those long Summer evenings.
Ormskirk itself is a hugely popular area due to the quality of lifestyle it offers, with its pretty town centre offering a pleasing blend of high street and boutique shops, vibrant bars and eateries, whilst excellent local schools and superb transport links cement its credentials as a place for all the family. This quality home simply must be viewed internally to appreciate all that it has to offer.
