This immaculately presented two bedroom ground floor apartment is one of the residences which has been skilfully converted from the original grammar school and is thought to have been the old headmasters quarters. The property has now been tastefully decorated to a very high standard throughout, with neutral colours enabling the incoming occupant to introduce their own style; colour schemes within each individual room, with new carpets and Amtico flooring throughout. The apartment also offers spacious accommodation with all the modern appointments demanded from modern living. For those searching for a property brimming with history and character, yet unwilling to sacrifice the many contemporary appointments we have grown accustomed to in these modern times, this property really does offer the best of both worlds. The historic exterior of this stunning stone-built former Grammar School oozes charm and character, with its mullion windows and clock tower, yet step inside and one could be forgiven for forgetting that this magnificent building was designed circa 1850. On entering via the property’s own private entrance one is greeted by a wonderfully light and bright reception hallway, which leads directly into the spacious lounge, impressively proportioned and providing a lovely sociable space in which to entertain or relax. Wander through into the sizeable kitchen/diner and you cannot fail to be impressed by the comprehensive range of modern fitted wall and base units with a range of quality integrated appliances, including oven, hob, extractor hood, dishwasher, microwave and washing machine. The floor space/property size is more akin to that of a family home than an apartment. Other highlights of this immaculate apartment are quality alarm/intruder system, ‘Hive’ central heating programming system installed which enables you to control your heating and hot water remotely, TV point in the master bedroom and concealed connections for TV etc in the main living room. There is a large floor to ceiling storage cupboard in the main hallway. The feeling of space continues throughout the rest of the apartment, particularly in the bedrooms which have recently been finished with a brand new range of quality fitted bedroom furniture, with the master being a particular highlight, being luxuriously spacious and boasting a contemporary three piece en-suite shower room. A beautifully appointed three piece main bathroom completes the accommodation. Externally, there is allocated parking facilities and beautifully restored communal period gardens. The development is situated in the prestigious ‘Ruff Lane’ conservation area, set amongst some of the area’s finest homes and ideal for commuters, with its excellent rail and motorway links, yet only a few minutes away from the bustling market town of Ormskirk, with its welcoming blend of shops, bars and eateries. Internal inspection is highly recommended to appreciate what this lovely home has to offer.
