Amongst a host of improvements, new anthracite grey double glazing has been installed, plus a stylish new bathroom and a fresh and bright standard of décor on display throughout, all of which has resulted in a ready to move into home for the family. The property is situated within the thriving village of Standish, 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 little ones, The bustling centre provides a host of local shops and amenities, including a post office and three supermarkets, whilst 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 it being virtually impossible to be any better positioned for access to the M6 motorway, ensuring major commercial centres such as Manchester, Liverpool and Preston are within a reasonable commute. One enters the accommodation via the entrance porch and into the reception hallway with its staircase to the first floor, before proceeding through into the 12’ lounge, which is filled with natural light via the large picture window to the front elevation, whilst the warm and homely ambience is created by the gorgeous feature fireplace with its inset solid fuel burner. The open plan layout into the 15’ kitchen/diner works wonderfully well and is the epitome of modern day living, creating that fashionable flow of living spaces which is as conducive to entertaining as it is to family living, with the nominated chef for the evening not needing to feel excluded from the fun. The kitchen is tidy and functional, offering an opportunity for a new owner to instil some of their own taste and designer touches into the accommodation, currently being fitted with a range of wall and base units in white, with complimentary laminated work surfaces and equipped with an integrated electric oven, five ring gas hob and extractor hood. The ground floor is completed by the beautifully appointed bathroom, which has recently been given a smart new look, being fully tiled and fitted with a three piece contemporary suite in classic white, comprising of WC, pedestal wash hand basin and a P-shaped panelled bath with overhead shower. If one ventures up to the first floor, the three good-sized bedrooms will be revealed – two doubles and a single, all of which are bright and well presented, with the 15’ master bedroom being of a particularly generous size, whilst the loft space – accessible from the landing via a pull-down ladder, has been boarded out and partially converted, complete with power, light and a Velux window, providing further potential which a new owner may wish to exploit further, whether it be a space simply for storage or perhaps some other purpose, such as a work space. Externally, the front garden is low-maintenance, whilst there is plenty of off-road parking available on the driveway, which also provides access to the detached garage. The rear garden is of a very good size and enjoys an excellent degree of privacy, comprising of a paved patio area for those summer barbeques and a lawn for the little ones to burn off their energy. This property has planning permission granted for a two story side extension and a single storey rear extension and also benefits from no chain. We would highly recommend an early viewing.
