This four bed chalet-style bungalow is a real class act, not only being situated on the prestigious Prescot Road, widely acknowledged as one of the finest residential addresses in the area, but also boasting a beautiful interior, being classically styled and brimming with all the personality one would associate with a bygone era of character and tradition. Aside from the delightful accommodation, which extends to in excess of a most generous 1,775 square feet, the convenience of the location, just a stone’s throw from the highly desirable village of Aughton, is a most salient point, close to the centre of the historic market town of Ormskirk, a vibrant commercial centre with an abundance of shops and amenities, including an eclectic range of boutique shops and high street stores, diverse eateries and trendy wine bars. Excellent transport links are also conveniently on hand, with the M58 motorway and the railway network close by, the latter being accessible at Aughton Park, which is just a short stroll away, ensuring the commuter has ease of access to major commercial centres such as Liverpool or Manchester. For the younger generations, excellent schooling at both primary and secondary levels are within easy reach, which is always an important consideration with any home of this type, plus the highly regarded Edge Hill University, cementing the area’s fine credentials as a place to raise the family.
One enters the property via the entrance porch with its courtesy door to the garage, and proceeds through into the welcoming reception hallway, and immediately is enveloped by the warmth and character which flows so prominently through the accommodation, the gorgeous parquet flooring and feature cast iron spiral staircase to the first floor adding real charm. Stunning Art Deco style double doors lead through into the 14’ dining room, which is lovely and bright via the atrium-style roof, and a fabulous entertaining space for those intimate evening soirees with friends, the gorgeous traditional fireplace providing a lovely focal point to the room, with the adjoining 20’ lounge boasting an attractive fireplace of its own, with inset coal-effect living flame gas fire. The quality Oak flooring and panelling to the walls again provides that much desired feeling of character and tradition, whilst the excellent flow of living spaces continue with glazed double doors through to the adjoining 13’ conservatory, which has a pretty garden room type quality, and provides a space in which to reflect and relax whilst admiring the aspect over the rear garden. The quality crafted 15’ kitchen is a real delight, being fitted with a comprehensive range of wall and base units in cream with contrasting granite work surfaces, and including a Belfast sink, as well as being equipped with a host of integrated appliances, including double electric oven, halogen hob with extractor hood, Bosch washing machine and fridge/freezer, whilst there is an adjoining breakfast room, in which to enjoy a relaxing cup of coffee of a morning.
Three of the bedrooms are located to the ground floor – two doubles and a single, as well as the main family shower room, which has been recently re-modelled into a contemporary wet-room style, comprising of WC, vanity wash hand basin and walk-in shower cubicle. A further 16’ double bedroom is located to the first floor, which would be ideal for children, particularly an older teenager looking for a bit of privacy, complete with a three piece en-suite shower room. Externally, off-road parking facilities for a number of vehicles can be accommodated on the paved and shingled in-and-out driveway, which also provides access to the attached single garage, with mature trees and shrubs to the perimeter.
The rear garden is a particular treat, being lovely and private, and mainly laid to lawn, complete with ornamental pond and two raised decked seating areas, as well as a further paved patio, ensuring one can always find a place in the sun to enjoy a glass of wine or two. We would highly recommend an internal inspection to truly appreciate this beautiful home.
