Conveniently situated just outside the vibrant centre of Chorley, this three bed traditional 1930s detached residence is a rare proposition indeed and sure to invoke a great deal of interest, being of a style which is often in high demand, yet rarely available. This handsome property brims with characterful kerb appeal and has been within our clients’ family for a substantial period of time, being a long-term family home. It is this almost tangible feeling of warmth and tradition which is so prevalent throughout its generously proportioned living spaces, which extend to in excess of 1,365 square feet in total, whilst the abundance of features of display are a real testament to a bygone era, which really does charm the soul. The property is priced to reflect the need for a programme of refurbishment here, however this exciting opportunity will no doubt be extremely appealing to those looking for a project, with limitless potential for a new owner to infuse one’s own style to produce a bespoke home to one’s individual taste and specification. The convenience of the location is also a point of particular note, being situated within walking distance of the wide variety of shops and amenities available with the town centre, a range of local schools, as well as offering the commuter ease of travel throughout the North-West, with both the bus and train station close-by, as well as the M6 and M61 motorways, ensuring major commercial centres such as Manchester, Preston and Bolton are within easy reach. One enters the property via the reception hallway with its useful cloaks cupboard and is immediately transported in time to the 1930s, the simply gorgeous panelled staircase and stained glass window to the side elevation merely hinting at the period features to come. The property enjoys two spacious reception rooms, affording a new owner the option to arrange their living spaces as they wish, however it is anticipated that one will wish to locate their lounge to the front elevation, complete with its attractive bay window, with a larger 13’ dining room to the rear, perhaps taking down the wall between the adjacent kitchen to create that much desired open plan entertaining space overlooking the delightful garden, subject to the necessary approvals. The current kitchen is fitted with a range of wall and base units with complimentary laminated work surfaces and benefits from a traditional pantry, whilst to the first floor, the landing provides access to the three bedrooms – two excellent doubles and a good-sized single, as well as the bathroom and separate WC. Accessible via a loft hatch on the landing, one will also discover a useful 19’ loft room, which provides a very handy storage space or perhaps a hobby room/work space. Externally, the property enjoys a very generous plot, particularly to the rear, offering great potential for extension, subject to the necessary consents. The front garden is low-maintenance, with the driveway providing access to the detached single garage, with an adjoining wash house/utility room and garden WC. The rear garden is of a great size, being mainly laid to lawn with mature fruit trees and a useful large storage shed/workshop complete with power and light. Available with the benefit of no onward chain, we would highly recommend an early appointment to view.
