Occupying a choice position within this very well regarded residential development, this immaculately presented four/five bed modern detached property not only enjoys a superb plot, but has also been immaculately maintained by our client since its construction by Dorbcrest Homes, a builder renowned for their excellent reputation and the quality finish of their homes. Our client has continued where the builder left off, with the addition of a conservatory to the rear, as well as a conversion of the original garage to create a further living space, both of which have added wonderful flexibility to the already well-proportioned accommodation, which now extends to in excess of 1,600 square feet in total. The development is situated just off Mill Lane in the prestigious village of Appley Bridge, an area which successfully blends the benefits of living amidst pretty local countryside with the convenience of being within easy reach of all that modern day living requires, with the bustling village centre of Standish with its host of local shops and amenities only a short drive away, and the motorway network closer still, ensuring major commercial centres such as Manchester and Liverpool can be reached within a reasonable commute, returning to one’s country retreat of an evening for a relaxing stroll with the dogs along the banks of the adjacent Leeds Liverpool Canal. One enters the property via the welcoming reception hallway with its spindled staircase to the first floor and handy two piece cloakroom/WC, before proceeding through into the sizeable 19’ lounge, which is filled with natural light via the bay window to the front elevation, whilst the cosy atmosphere is aided by the wall-mounted plasma-style electric fire. The separate dining room provides a space for those formal dinner parties, with guests able to step through the French doors into the 11’ conservatory to relax with an after-dinner glass of wine or two, whilst more informal dining can be accommodated within the spacious 14’ breakfast kitchen, which is also large enough to fit a dining suite, which will be ideal for those swift bites to eat before the school run. The kitchen is comprehensively fitted with an extensive range of high-gloss wall and base units with contrasting black laminated work surfaces, as well as being equipped with a host of quality AEG appliances, including over-sized electric oven, five ring gas hob with extractor canopy, microwave, fridge/freezer, dishwasher and washing machine. The ground floor is completed by the conversion of the garage to create a flexible space which could be utilised for a number of purposes, such as a second sitting room, a playroom for the little ones or perhaps a fifth bedroom, if so required. To the first floor, one will discover the four good-sized bedrooms – three doubles and a single, with the 13’ master bedroom boasting a smart three piece en-suite shower room. The remainder of the family are well catered for by the main house bathroom, which is fitted with a three piece suite in classic white, comprising of WC, wall-mounted wash hand basin and panelled bath with overhead shower. Externally, the low-maintenance front garden is laid with astro-turf, with the borders allowing for the strategic placing of planters to suit one’s preference. Off-road parking facilities are provided for two vehicles on the double-width driveway. The tiered rear garden is very generous, with the lower tier being laid to lawn with planted borders, and the upper tier again being partially laid with astro-turf, providing that all-important space on which to soak up some sunshine or enjoy a spot of al-fresco dining. There is also some useful space to the side elevation, where one could house a storage shed. We would highly recommend an internal inspection of this beautiful home. Other benefits include gas central heating and double glazing.
