One cannot impress enough the need for an internal inspection to appreciate this immaculately presented four bed detached chalet-style bungalow, not only to appreciate how fastidiously this home has been maintained to the highest of standards, but also the amount of space which is on offer here, with the deceptive, albeit attractive, rendered exterior belying a home of superb proportions, extending to in excess of a superb 1,835 square feet in total. The property is sure to appeal to a broad demographic, being of a type that is in consistently high demand due to their limited supply, bungalows being a rare commodity, with the obvious appeal for those more mature buyers with an eye on the future, looking to move to a more manageable arrangement of accommodation without wishing to compromise on space, but also to those looking for a well proportioned home in which to raise their growing family, with the reality that this home could serve as a forever home, due to the flexible arrangement of bedrooms and bathrooms on both floors, which would be equally appealing for those looking to accommodate an elderly or disabled relative within their family unit. The property integrates perfectly with its peaceful and salubrious surroundings, enjoying a lovely position along New Street at the heart of the picturesque and extremely sought-after West Lancashire village of Mawdesley, renowned for offering old world charm and a quality lifestyle to its fortunate inhabitants, as well as a pleasing blend of prestige, character and country homes amidst stunning countryside. Despite this real feeling of rural living, the position is far from remote, with a number of other surrounding villages close-by, including Parbold and Eccleston, which offer all the required shops, amenities, bars and eateries one could desire, whilst swift links to surrounding towns and cities are available via the M6 motorway, which will be most welcome for those with a commute to consider, ensuring one can enjoy the aspiration country life without the fear of isolation. Internally, the living spaces are filled with natural light and complimented by the neutral décor, whilst the impressive floorplan is superbly laid-out, flowing perfectly and meeting all the demands required of modern living. One enters via the welcoming reception hallway and is immediately enveloped by the warm and inviting atmosphere, which only increases as one proceeds through into the 14’ lounge, aided in no small part by the delightful feature fireplace with its inset burner-style gas fire, whilst the large bow window to the front elevation provides an abundance of natural light and the perfect vantage point to watch the world go by. The hub of this home is undoubtedly the 25' open plan kitchen/diner, which is the epitome of modern day living, the perfect space in which all generations can gather together to swap tales of the day over dinner or a fabulous room for entertaining even the most populous of gatherings, with the ability to emphasise the open plan layout even further by opening the bi-folding doors through into the fabulous 13’ conservatory, which has added further flexibility to the already adaptable floor plan and a great spot in which to relax with an after-dinner glass of wine or two. The kitchen is fitted with a range of beech-effect wall and base units with contrasting black laminated work surfaces and equipped with an integrated high-level double electric oven and halogen hob with extractor canopy, whilst the handy 13’ separate utility room with its atrium-style roof is of a great size and similarly well fitted out – a great place to keep the family laundry out of view of unexpected visitors. Two of the bedrooms are located to the ground floor – one double and a good-sized single, both of which benefit from built-in storage and the smaller of the two being a perfect size for use as a study, should one require some space in which to work from home. The ground floor is completed by the family bathroom, which is fully tiled and fitted with a four piece suite in classic white, comprising of WC, vanity wash hand basin, panelled corner bath and separate shower cubicle. To the first floor, the landing with its useful walk-in storeroom provides access to a further two excellent 17’ double bedrooms with Velux windows, as well as an additional three piece shower room. Externally, the gardens are low-maintenance, ensuring any occupier can spend their time relaxing in them, rather than maintaining them, however they are nonetheless attractively presented, the front enjoying planted borders and an abundance of off-road parking facilities, with a block paved double-width driveway providing access to the attached single garage, as well as an additional shingled driveway, which will be perfect should one be looking to accommodate a caravan or motorhome. The rear garden enjoys attractive planting and a high degree of privacy, whilst there is a pleasing blend of decking, shingle and stone paving, ensuring one is never without a spot in which to soak up a bit of sunshine. Other highlights include a summerhouse and a raised fish pond. Available with the benefit of no onward chain, we would highly recommend an internal inspection to appreciate all that this lovely home has to offer.
