Bordering picturesque countryside and occupying a fabulous plot of circa a third of an acre, Pine Tree Cottage is a really intriguing home, oozing all of the charming features of a characterful cottage, combined with the flexible layout of a chalet-style bungalow. In our opinion this property would be an ideal prospect for those whose children have flown the nest and are looking to down-size to a more manageable home, without wishing to compromise on space, however its spacious and flexible accommodation may also appeal to those looking for a home in which to raise their young family. The location similarly excels, being highly desirable indeed, situated at the higher end of the extremely well regarded Prescot Road and, therefore, amidst open countryside, ensuring one can enjoy a relaxing stroll with the dogs after a stressful day in the office. The prestigious district of Aughton is renowned for its pleasing blend of prestige property, as well as its convenient benefits, ideally positioned for access to the abundance of shops and amenities within the historic market town of Ormskirk, offering an eclectic range of boutique shops and high street stores, whilst excellent transport links via the nearby M58 and the railway network, ensures ease of access to major cities such as Manchester and Liverpool. The accommodation here extends to circa a most generous 1,870 square feet in total, entering via the entrance porch and into the welcoming reception hallway, where one is immediately infused with the almost tangible warmth of the atmosphere, the spindled staircase drawing the eye up to the galleried landing with its beamed vaulted ceiling, providing the first of the abundance of features on display throughout. One proceeds into the wonderfully spacious 21’ lounge, with its wooden flooring and decorative plasterwork, which manages to remain cosy despite its impressive proportions, whilst there is an abundance of natural light via the feature bay window to the front elevation. The 15’ formal dining room provides that ideal space for entertaining friends during those intimate evening soirees, although this could be utilised as a bedroom, should one wish to utilise the large lounge for dual purposes or indeed dine within the 11’ conservatory, which provides an ideal vantage point from where to enjoy the lovely aspect over the rear garden. The 17’ L-shaped breakfast kitchen incorporates a breakfast bar for a swift cup of coffee between chores, being fitted with a range of Oak-effect wall and base units with contrasting black laminated work surfaces and incorporating a Range-style cooker with overhead extractor canopy, whilst the vaulted ceiling provides another fabulous feature, as well as emphasising the feeling of space. A 10’ bedroom is located to the ground floor, although this would similarly make a perfect study, as well as the main house bathroom, which is sumptuously appointed with a five piece suite in classic white, comprising of WC, wash hand basin, bidet, panelled Jacuzzi bath and separate shower cubicle. To the first floor, the galleried landing provides access to a further two characterful bedrooms – both of which are doubles and benefit from clever built-in storage, as well as each boasting a private three piece en-suite shower room. Externally, a real feeling of rural living is afforded by the countryside views to the front, side and rear, which feel like an extension to the already sizeable gardens, which are mainly laid to lawn, with mature trees and shrubs to the perimeter. The rear garden benefits from a large paved patio area and a summer house, with one able to enjoy the privacy afforded by the open aspect with a spot of lunch in the sunshine. The large driveway provides an abundance of off-road parking, as well as leading to the detached double garage. Available with the benefit of no onward chain, we would highly recommend an internal inspection of this unique home.
