Exquisite and breath-taking, this simply stunning four/five bed executive detached residence has the credentials to warrant limitless hyperbole, presented to an almost unassailable standard throughout, not only having been beautifully maintained since its initial construction, with an impeccable standard of décor and stylish upgrades of its fixtures and fittings, but also having been continually improved to our clients' exacting standards, creating a simply sublime end product which is reminiscent of a show home. So often modern properties are criticised for their lack of character, but this rather handsome example puts up a very convincing argument to the contrary, oozing curb appeal within this highly regarded modern development and enjoying a premium position, adjacent to delightful mature woodland and benefitting from an excellent degree of privacy, all of which provides a safe and secure haven for the youngest members of the family. The property was constructed by Arley Homes in 2014, a quality builder of new homes renowned for their attention to detail and exceptional standards of finish, who through thoughtful design have managed to instil character and charm, whilst ensuring that all the modern appointments expected of a contemporary home are catered for. The high standard even incorporates an energy-saving specification, which includes rain water harvesting and solar powered water heating. The elegance of the exterior integrates seamlessly with its pleasant surroundings, with our clients having carefully selected their plot, which really stands out from its neighbours, with its discreet position and great-size rear garden creating a very enviable position within the Duxbury Manor development, just off Myles Standish Way. The convenience of the location is a point of particular note, being situated just a short drive out of Chorley town centre, therefore being well placed for access to its abundance of shops and amenities, as well as being within easy reach of well regarded primary and secondary schools and transport links, including the motorway network. The accommodation itself benefits from the optimum layout, being arranged over two inviting levels and complimented by an exceptional floor plan which extends to in excess of a most impressive 2,170 square feet, and epitomises the concept of the 21st century home perfectly, entering via the rather grand entrance hallway with its spindled staircase to the first floor, ever-useful two piece cloakroom/WC and stylish Amtico flooring, which extends throughout virtually the whole of the ground floor, linking the living spaces perfectly. One proceeds through into the gorgeous 16’ lounge, which cannot fail to infuse a warm and inviting ambiance, complete with a great deal of light via the feature bay window to the front elevation, whilst a second 10’ reception room creates a flexible space, suitable for a variety of uses, whether it be a snug, a playroom for the little ones, a study for those who require some space to work from home or perhaps a formal dining room, as in the case of our clients. We are confident, however, that most will choose to dine within the magnificent 33’ open plan kitchen/diner/family room, which is so popular and much desired nowadays, complete with matching separate utility room, which stretches the full width of the rear and is the hub of this home, a wonderfully sociable environment in which the family can gather together, or indeed the perfect entertaining space, whether it be a sophisticated dinner party or the most populous of gatherings, with guests able to spill out onto the patio via the two sets of uPVC double glazed French doors; fitted with a range of quality high-gloss wall and base units in cream with contrasting black granite work surfaces and incorporating a host of integrated appliances, including electric oven, five ring gas hob with extractor canopy, fridge/freezer and dishwasher. Stylish tiling and inset lighting complete the stylish finish. If one hasn't been wowed enough, an inspection of the upstairs will see this home excel even further, with the delightful galleried landing providing access to the four excellent double bedrooms, all of which are as bright and appealing as they are spacious. The divine 14’ master suite boasts a simply breath-taking re-fitted en-suite wet room, a sumptuous addition of the highest quality, as well as an en-suite dressing room – sure to score highly with the lady of the house – which has been beautifully fitted out with modern wardrobes and a dressing table, however this could be utilised as a fifth bedroom, if so desired by a new owner, given it also has direct access from the landing. Bedroom two also boasts its own private three piece en-suite shower room, which would be ideal for an older child or as a guest room, with the remainder of the family suitably spoiled by the main bathroom, which is fitted with a smart four piece suite in classic white, comprising of WC, pedestal wash hand basin, panelled bath and separate shower cubicle. Externally, our clients have spent a great deal of time and money re-landscaping the outside spaces, with the front garden being mainly laid with low-maintenance astro-turf and bordered by mature planting. The lengthy block-paved driveway provides an abundance of off-road parking facilities, which is rarely seen within a modern development, being able to accommodate a number of vehicles, as well as giving access to the detached double garage. The rear garden is a real horticultural delight, being arranged over two levels, with the upper level providing a vast flagged patio area for those well attended barbeques, as well as a decked seating area with glazed balustrade, creating a unique balcony-style effect, which is a lovely feature. Stone steps lead down to the lower level, where the little ones can burn off their energy playing on the astro-turf, complete with attractive hedging and mature planting to the perimeter, with mum and dad able to keep a watchful eye relaxing around the fire pit with its built-in stone seating, perhaps with a relaxing glass of wine or two. An early internal inspection of this aspirational dream home is essential to avoid disappointment and to appreciate the quality of its accommodation.
