The extremely sought-after West Lancashire village of Mawdesley has become synonymous with a quality lifestyle, renowned for offering old world charm and picturesque countryside, as well as a pleasing blend of prestige, character and country homes. In summary, this delightful setting is perfectly conducive to raising a family and any home with suitable credentials for this purpose is always in high demand. We would, therefore, highly recommend a swift appointment to view this intriguing four bed detached residence, situated on this quiet residential development, just off Smithy Lane, at the heart of this beautiful village. The property started life as a dormer-style bungalow, but has since evolved into a traditional house through a thoughtful extension to the rear, resulting in excess of 1,530 square feet of living accommodation in total, providing plenty of space into which the little ones can grow and flourish. Despite the real feeling of rural living afforded by the village setting, the reality is that the location is very convenient and far from remote, with a convenience store, Post Office, café and a number of public houses within walking distance, as well as a number of other surrounding villages close-by, including Parbold and Eccleston, which offer an even broader range of shops, amenities, bars and eateries. A number of outstanding local schools are within easy reach, which is always an important consideration with any home of this type, whilst swift links to surrounding towns and cities are available via the M6 motorway, which will be most welcome for those with a commute to consider. One enters the accommodation via the generous entrance hallway with its handy guest WC and Oak spindled staircase to the first floor, before proceeding through into the welcoming 18’ lounge, which enjoys a delightful warm and inviting ambience, as well as being filled with natural light via the large picture window to the front elevation. The Oak flooring and gorgeous feature Victorian-style fireplace with its open grate add lovely characterful touches and it is easy to see oneself relaxing away the stresses of the day on a frosty winter evening around a crackling open fire. Double doors lead through into a further reception room, meaning these spaces can be opened up or closed off, as required, which will be most useful when one is entertaining those more populous gatherings, perhaps pushing open the UPVC double glazed French doors to allow guests to spill out onto the garden. This flexible space could be utilised for a number of purposes, whether it be a study for those who require some space to work from home, a snug-style sitting room or indeed a formal dining room, although it is anticipated that most will prefer to dine within the spacious 19’ kitchen/diner, which is fitted with an extensive range of limed-oak wall and base units with contrasting laminated work surfaces and equipped with an integrated Range-style cooker with extractor hood. The ground floor is completed by a handy modern two piece wet room-style shower room. To the first floor, the landing provides access to the four bright and well-proportioned bedrooms, as well as the main house bathroom, which is fitted with a three piece suite in white, comprising of WC, pedestal wash hand basin and panelled bath with shower handset attachment. Externally, the property enjoys gardens to the front and rear, which are mainly laid to lawn with mature trees, plants and shrubs to the perimeter, with the rear garden also benefitting from a shingled seating area where one can enjoy a relaxing glass of wine in the sunshine. Plenty of off-road parking facilities are provided on the double-width shingled driveway, which also gives access to the integral single garage. Available with NO UPWARD CHAIN.
