Properties within this highly-prized residential development rarely come onto the market and it is certainly easy to see why, this fabulous location being nestled amidst beautiful local countryside and a wonderful environment to raise little ones. Furthermore, this wonderful example surely must be one of the finest of its type, not only having been superbly enhanced by our clients to include extensions to the rear elevation, a reconfiguration of the ground floor layout and a partial conversion of the attached double garage, but also boasting a premium plot and certainly the best that we have had the pleasure to market to date, with generous gardens which envelope this home, marrying perfectly with the spacious interior. The marvellous floor plan, which extends to circa an impressive 1,865 square feet, flows beautifully and is ideal for entertaining, with no less than four sets of French windows onto the rear garden, linking the outdoor and indoor living spaces perfectly, which is sure to score highly with those who love to host those well-attended barbecues in the warm summer months. The location affords a real feeling of country living, despite this being a modern residential development of varying styles of family homes, the gorgeous semi-rural village of Heapey being renowned for its picturesque countryside, ensuring one is never without an option for a relaxing stroll with the dogs of a evening. Despite these country credentials, one is in reality far from remote, being only a few minutes drive out of the vibrant town centre of Chorley, which itself offers a host of shops and amenities, as well as eclectic bars and eateries, along with well regarded schools and ease of access to the M6 and M61 motorways, ensuring major commercial centres, such as Manchester, Liverpool and Preston, are all within a reasonable commute. Our clients have gone to great lengths to create a home which meets all of the requirements one would desire for their growing family, lovingly cared for and presented to a simply stunning standard throughout, with high quality fixtures and fittings and an almost tangible warmth which infuses one's heart from the first step across the threshold, entering via the welcoming entrance hallway, with its useful two piece cloakroom/WC and spindled staircase to the first floor, before proceeding through the glazed double doors into the main 25' lounge, which stretches the full depth of the property, the bright dual aspect affording an abundance of natural light. This sizeable environment is large enough to be arranged as two distinct areas, with a comfortable sitting room where one can relax with a film, complete with feature fireplace with inset coal-effect living flame gas fire, and a quieter more intimate reading area, where one can absorb themselves in their latest novel of choice whilst enjoying the aspect over the rear garden. The adjoining 16' dining room is a perfect space for those more intimate dinner parties, with guests able to relax in the 14' conservatory with a pre-dinner aperitif, whilst the nominated chef for the evening whips up a storm in the gorgeous 23' kitchen - and what a kitchen it is! Our clients love to entertain and have designed this space around their passion, affording all the culinary requirements one could desire, being fitted with an extensive range of wall and base units in cream with contrasting laminated work surfaces and equipped with a host of integrated appliances, including high-level double electric oven, induction hob with extractor hood and dishwasher. There is enough space here in which to accommodate a dining suite for those swift bites to eat before the school run, whilst there is a most useful, well-appointed off-lying utility room in which to keep the family laundry out of view, complete with an integrated larder-style fridge. If one ventures up to the first floor, the state of impress continues with the four well-proportioned bedrooms, all of which benefit from built-in furniture and with the 14' master suite able to boast a very smartly fitted three piece en-suite shower room. The remainder of the family are well catered for by the main bathroom, which is fitted with a three piece suite in classic white, comprising of WC, pedestal wash hand basin and panelled bath with overhead shower attachment. Externally, the delightful plot is a horticultural treat, with the large frontage being an attractive mixture of low-maintenance shingle and manicured lawn, complete with mature trees and shrubs to the boundary, whilst there is plentiful off-road parking facilities on the block-paved driveway, as well as within the single garage, for those who have a number of cars or who perhaps need space to accommodate a caravan or motorhome. The side and rear gardens merge into one fabulous oasis, with a high degree of privacy to be enjoyed by all. The swathes of lawn, encompassed by mature planting, provide ample opportunity for the little ones to burn off their energy playing to their hearts' content, whilst mum and dad can keep a watchful eye from any one of a number of areas in which to relax, whether it be the pergola, the paved patio or the summer house, perhaps with a glass of wine or two in the late evening sunshine. Of course, such is the size of the plot, the opportunity exists here to extend the accommodation further, if so desired by a new owner and subject to the necessary consents and approvals. We cannot stress enough the importance of an early internal viewing to avoid missing out on this rare opportunity and to appreciate all that this beautiful home has to offer.
