Discreetly positioned along a leafy private driveway serving just a handful of similar homes, one would be forgiven for not ever having noticed the extremely private elevated position of this beautifully presented and extended three bed traditional semi-detached property, which undoubtedly will be a real bonus for those looking for a safe environment in which to raise their little ones. The privacy continues with a delightful rear garden which backs onto mature woodland, giving a true feeling of seclusion, whilst internally, further highlights include a new quality fitted kitchen and shower room, as well as a lovely conservatory, ensuring that garden can be enjoyed whatever the weather. The highly regarded address of Wigan Road is widely acknowledged as one of the finest the thriving village of Standish has to offer, an area which has demonstrated itself to be a consistent attraction to prospective buyers, its strong sense of community, and all that it is able to offer its inhabitants, being a particularly strong pull for those looking for a location to raise their family. At its heart, the beautiful Parish Church of St. Wilfrid, the only Grade I listed building within Wigan, as well as other delightful landmarks such as a late medieval cross and stone stocks in the market place, whilst the bustling village centre, which is within walking distance, provides a host of local shops and amenities, including a post office and three supermarkets. The abundant social scene continues to grow, with a plethora of eating establishments and bars to choose from when one is wishing to unwind and, when one is craving something more vibrant still, Wigan town centre is only a short distance away, with its own diverse range of high street stores, trendy bars and eclectic eateries, which will be perfect for those who enjoy a hectic social calendar. The area boasts a number of highly regarded schools at both primary and secondary level, whilst the older members of the family are also well catered for, with close proximity to the M6 motorway at junction 27, ensuring major commercial centres such as Manchester, Liverpool and Preston are within a reasonable commute. The property has been beautifully maintained and improved under our client’s attentive ownership and affords a very appealing low maintenance opportunity for those simply wishing to move in their furniture, sit back and enjoy their new surroundings. The neutral décor and generous levels of natural light compliment eachother perfectly and aid in the creation of a warm and inviting ambience, which is synonymous with traditional homes of this characterful period. The accommodation extends to in excess of 1,285 square feet in total; entering via the storm porch into the welcoming reception hallway with its spindled staircase to the first floor, before proceeding through into the 12’ lounge, linked by the quality Oak flooring and being greeted by the cosy atmosphere which is so prevalent throughout this home and perfectly conducive to relaxation, aided by the feature fireplace with its inset coal-effect, living flame gas fire. Glazed double doors lead through into the front-facing 11’ dining room, ensuring these two spaces can be opened up or closed off depending on the occasion, closed for those intimate evening soirees when one has friends over for dinner or open for those more populous family gatherings. The 13’ conservatory has been a superb addition by our client, adding further flexibility to the accommodation, stretching the full width of the rear and accessible from both the lounge and the kitchen, creating a pleasing flow of living spaces and suitable for a variety of uses, not least an ideal spot in which to relax away the stresses of the day with a glass of wine, whilst enjoying the pleasant aspect over the garden. The superbly appointed 14’ kitchen completes the ground floor and has been recently re-fitted with a range of high-gloss wall and base units in cream with complimentary laminated work surfaces and equipped with a range of quality integrated appliances, including high-level electric oven, induction hob with extractor canopy, microwave, fridge/freezer and dishwasher. If one ventures up to the first floor, three bright and appealing bedrooms will be revealed – two good-sized doubles with a range of built-in wardrobes and a single – as well as the beautifully appointed family shower room, which has again been comprehensively over-hauled with a stylish contemporary three piece suite in classic white, comprising of close-coupled WC, vanity wash hand basin and walk-in shower cubicle. Externally, there are gardens to the front and rear, being mainly laid to lawn, with the rear also enjoying a good-sized patio area on which to enjoy a spot of lunch when the sun is shining. Off-road parking facilities are available on the driveway, which also provides access to the detached single garage. An early viewing of this beautiful home is highly recommended.
