*** NO UPWARD CHAIN*** Beautifully renovated to a very high standard by the current owners, 24 St Helens Road is a homely period property situated in the historic market town of Ormskirk. With spacious room proportions this property offers everything that one would expect from a period home - high ceilings, traditional picture rails, decorative coving, sash style windows and original feature fireplaces these are just some of the impressive features to be found in a house where finishing touches and attention to detail are clearly evident in every room. To the front of the property is a large lounge that lets in an abundance of light courtesy of a bay window that almost stretches from floor to ceiling. And, if you are looking for elegant period features, look no further than the stunning feature fireplace that takes centre stage. A second similar sized room also benefits from a beautiful bay window and could easily be a formal dining area, second sitting room, or study for those working from home. However, the real centre piece of this home has to be the fabulous bespoke kitchen to the rear of this property; here you will find a plethora of stunning traditional solid oak units, which include a sizeable central island perfect for informal dining, although there is plenty of space for a separate dining table if you so wish. Hi-spec integrated appliances and a stunning inset range cooker add to the overall finish of this exquisite room, with large sliding doors leading directly to the charming walled garden Upstairs the spacious room proportions and hi-end finish continue; the master bedroom to the front of the property is beautifully decorated with elegantly printed Laura Ashley wallpaper, and would easily house multiple storage options. There are a further two bedrooms to this floor, both of which could be considered good sized doubles. However, as with the ground floor, there is a room that almost certainly stands out from the others and that's the family bathroom. Very generously sized this stunning room has been finished to an immaculate standard befitting of any five star hotel, and includes a traditional style roll top bath and a separate modern shower. As for decor sumptuous glossy floor tiles are further enhanced by bold coloured-walls and stylish wall-hung radiators/towel rails. Externally, the property also benefits from a sizeable workshop and separate utility area, and in terms of storage there is a sizeable cellar with low ceiling beneath the house. Ormskirk's town centre, which is perhaps best known for its twice weekly market, which is held on a Thursday and a Saturday, is a stone's throw from this property. Here you will find Ormskirk's mainline station and a varied selection of mainstream and boutique style shops, plus numerous modern cafes, restaurants and bars. With regards to education there are a number of good schools in the catchment area at both primary and secondary level; Springfield Nursery, located in nearby Aughton, is a great place for pre-school children and recently received an outstanding Ofsted report. For further education close to home Ormskirk's prestigious Edge Hill University recently shortlisted for the University of the Year Awards, making it one of the country's most sought after places to study. Ormskirk also offers great transport links to the nearby areas of Southport, Preston and Liverpool, courtesy of Northern Rail, whilst various bus services also operate locally.
