This four bed detached property has one or two surprises in store for any would-be acquirers, not least the superb garage conversion which has added superb flexibility to the accommodation, but also a magnificent sun room-style extension to the rear, which has created a magnificent open plan living space, which is so desired nowadays and the epitome of modern day living. The property is situated at the head of this quiet residential cul-de-sac on this extremely well regarded and established development, just off the prestigious Wigan Road, widely acknowledged as one of the finest residential addresses in the area. The location is wonderfully convenient for access to the thriving village of Standish, which has demonstrated itself to be a consistent attraction to prospective purchasers, its strong sense of community, and all that it has to offer its inhabitants, being a particularly strong pull for those looking for a location to raise their family. Wigan town centre is also only a short distance away by car or public transport, ensuring a diverse range of high street stores, trendy bars and eclectic eateries are conveniently on hand, 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, which is always an important consideration with any home of this type, whilst the older members of the family are also well catered for, with close proximity to the M6 motorway ensuring major commercial centres such as Manchester, Liverpool and Preston are within a reasonable commute. The accommodation itself extends to in excess of 1,100 square feet in total, with a contemporary and stylish interior from the décor to the quality fixtures and fittings, as well as a wonderfully flexible floor plan which can be utilised to one’s own requirements; entering via the entrance hallway with its useful off-lying two piece cloakroom/WC, before proceeding through the inner hallway with its spindled staircase to the first floor into the fabulous 22’ open plan living space, where one would be forgiven for believing that they’d entered a trendy city centre apartment, its superb sociable feel and contemporary presentation being a perfect representation of modern day living. The light here really is fantastic, with the abundance of glass, which includes Velux windows, really creating a bright and welcoming space for the family, or when one has the urge to entertain for the evening, with guests able to step out into the rear garden via the large patio windows for an after-dinner cocktail or two. The kitchen is fitted with a stylish range of high-gloss wall and base units in black, with contrasting solid wood work surfaces and an island unit incorporating a breakfast bar, whilst benefitting from a number of integrated appliances, including high-level electric oven, halogen hob with extractor canopy and microwave. The open plan feel continues through into a 14’ reception room, complete with a feature fireplace with inset coal-effect, living flame gas fire, presently utilised as a formal dining room, but which could be similarly utilised as a sitting room, if so desired by a new owner, whilst this could similarly be said for the skilful conversion of the original garage, which has created a further 16’ flexible space, presently utilised as a fourth bedroom, complete with built-in wardrobes, but which would also make an ideal study, should one require some space to work from home. To the first floor, a further three bright bedrooms will be revealed – two doubles and a single, with the 14’ master also benefitting from built-in wardrobes, with the accommodation completed by the family bathroom, which is fitted with a three piece suite in white, comprising of WC, vanity wash hand basin and panelled bath with overhead shower. Externally, the low-maintenance frontage provides plenty of off-road parking facilities, whilst the simply stunning rear garden has a distinct continental vibe and wonderfully original, complete with a large walled stone flagged patio where one can soak up the sunshine, with built-in seating, lighting and a water feature, whilst the side patio or decked area provide alternative seating options. An abundance of beautiful planting has created a delightful oasis which is perfectly conducive to relaxation, along with the private aspect, ensuring one can relax away the stresses of the day after a touch day in the office. We would highly recommend an internal inspection to fully appreciate this unique home.
