Should one be searching for a home of distinction, then one needn’t look any further than this magnificent five bed double-fronted detached residence, a home which brims with the character and elegance of a bygone era of heritage and tradition. The state of impress continues internally, with not only the number of living spaces, but the proportions of them also, extending to circa 3,635 square feet in total, aided by the substantial extension to the ground floor and the most welcome surprise of a useful outbuilding to the rear. The flexibility, however, does not end there, with a ground floor bedroom suite with adjoining rooms affording the potential for annex-style accommodation. The property occupies an extremely generous plot and is conveniently located within close proximity to Southport town centre, therefore within swift access of all of its plentiful shops, amenities and attractions. Highly regarded local primary and secondary schools are on hand, which is always an important consideration with any family home, and for the older generations, transport and commuter links, with the local railway station within walking distance. The accommodation enjoys an abundance of natural light and a real feeling of grandeur, with charming features abound, no more so than in the welcoming vast reception hallway, accessed via the entrance porch, where one is greeted by ornate decorative plasterwork and a beautiful spindled staircase rising to the first floor, whilst there is a useful off-lying two piece cloakroom/WC. One can choose any one of the three separate reception rooms in which to relax, presently arranged as a 14’ formal lounge and a 13’ dining room to the front elevation, both of which boast attractive fireplaces and delightful bay windows, as well as a cosy 15’ snug-style sitting room to the side elevation. The beautifully appointed 18’ kitchen is large enough to accommodate a dining suite and has been re-fitted with an extensive range of wall and base units in cream, with contrasting solid wood work surfaces, including a central island unit and incorporating a host of integrated appliances, including a high-level double electric oven, gas hob with extractor canopy and dishwasher. There is also a most handy off-lying 14’ utility room, which is also accessible from the hallway. The ground floor is completed by a 12’ double bedroom, complete with a stylish three-piece en-suite shower room, and a 28’ conservatory, which stretches the full width of the rear of the property. The first-floor accommodation impresses in equal measure, with the feature landing providing access to the four bright double bedrooms, the two largest of which boast a smart ‘Jack and Jill’ style en-suite shower room, with a contemporary three-piece suite. The remainder of the family are suitably spoiled by the main house bathroom, which is fitted with a three-piece suite in classic white, comprising of WC, vanity wash hand basin and free-standing jacuzzi bath. Externally, the front garden is mainly laid to lawn with plants and shrubs to the borders, whilst there is a gravelled parking area for a number of vehicles. Vehicular access is provided to the side of the property via the driveway, proceeding through double gates into the rear garden, therefore providing plenty of possibilities of use for the substantial circa 634 square foot outbuilding, whether it be a workshop, storage space, garaging for multiple vehicles or potential conversion to ancillary accommodation, subject to the necessary consents. The rear garden itself is of a very good size and enjoys an excellent degree of privacy, being mainly laid to lawn with mature trees and shrubs to the perimeter. We would highly recommend an internal inspection of this unique home to appreciate the size of the accommodation on offer.
