One cannot emphasise enough the importance of an internal inspection to appreciate all that this fabulous detached true bungalow has to offer, having been fastidiously maintained and improved under our client’s attentive ownership to create a beautiful home into which one simply needs to move in their furniture, sit back and relax in their new surroundings. Bungalows are so often in strong demand due to their limited supply, and never more so than when in good order, therefore we would anticipate a high level of interest in this finest of examples, which has a plethora of highlights to tempt even the most discerning of purchasers, not least the very high quality of fixtures and fittings on display throughout internally, whilst externally, aside from the stunning rural location, which affords beautiful views over local countryside, one will marvel at the spectacular private plot, which extends to circa one acre. This delightful location excels every bit as much as the home itself, positioned along this country lane within the desirable village of Shirdley Hill. This beautiful rural outpost has strong agricultural traditions, renowned for its picturesque countryside and peaceful lifestyle which gives a real feeling of seclusion, yet remains within easy reach of a broad range of amenities within the historic market town of Ormskirk, with its eclectic array of boutique and high street shops, bars and eateries, as well as excellent transport links via rail and road for those wishing to travel further afield, ensuring major commercial centres such as Liverpool and Manchester are within a reasonable commute. We are certain that this exciting opportunity will appeal to a broad demographic, with the obvious appeal to a more mature buyer looking towards the future and wishing to acquire a home with accommodation on one level, without wishing to compromise on space, but similarly the huge proportions of this property would similarly be an ideal place in which to raise one’s little ones, extending to a most impressive 2,670 square feet of living space in total. The floorplan is superbly laid-out and, due to the nature of the property, affords that much desired flexibility to utilise the living spaces to one’s individual requirements, which may even evolve over time; entering via the entrance porch and into the welcoming reception hallway with its ever useful two piece cloakroom/WC, where one immediately senses the warm and inviting ambiance which is so prevalent throughout, nowhere more so than within the vast 22’ main lounge, which stretches the full depth of the property and brims with natural light via the plethora of windows to three sides, which include patio doors opening out onto the garden, which will be ideal in those warm summer months. In the winter months, the rustic brick-built fireplace houses the all-important solid fuel burner and conjures images of frosty evenings huddled around a crackling fire. A further two reception rooms offer that aforementioned flexibility, able to be used for a number of purposes, such as additional sitting rooms, a playroom or study, or as in the case of our clients, a cinema room, ensuring those Saturday film nights can be enjoyed on your very own big screen. The real hub of this home is sure to be the sizeable 22’ open plan kitchen/dining room, which has provided that much sought-after sociable entertaining space when one has friends over for those evening soirees, with the nominated chef for the evening not needing to be excluded from the fun. The kitchen is extensively fitted with a quality range of two-tone wall and base units in white and grey, with contrasting black granite work surfaces incorporating a traditional Belfast sink and breakfast bar, whilst there is a host of integrated appliances, including Range-style cooker with extractor canopy, microwave, fridge/freezer and dishwasher. The off-lying lean-to conservatory incorporates a 12’ utility area, which will be a useful space in which to keep the family laundry out of view. The property boasts four well-proportioned bedrooms – three generous doubles and a good-sized single, with the lovely 24’ master suite, boasting a very well appointed four piece en-suite bathroom, as well as French doors onto the rear garden. The remainder of the family are truly spoiled by the sumptuous main bathroom, which is reminiscent of a boutique hotel suite, being fitted with a three piece suite, comprising of WC, vanity wash hand basin and, its centrepiece, a breath-taking chrome free-standing bath. Externally, a real feeling of rural living is afforded by the countryside views to the front and rear, which feel like an extension to the already vast gardens,. The soft-play area and swathes of lawn to the rear provide endless opportunity for the little ones to explore and burn off their energy, bordered by mature woodland, which offer unrivalled privacy, with mum and dad able to keep a watchful eye from any one of the patio areas, soaking up the sunshine with a relaxing glass of wine or two. The low-maintenance frontage provides all the off-road parking facilities one could desire, leading to the detached double garage. We would highly recommend an internal inspection of this unique home to appreciate all that it has to offer.
