The idyllic village of Mawdesley has become synonymous with prestige and country homes and therefore we would anticipate strong interest in this delightful cottage set within this most sought-after location. This pretty home has been lovingly cared for and the current owners have tastefully presented the property throughout, in our opinion it ticks all of the boutique property boxes with a balanced blend of character and contemporary accents. The internal accommodation extends to in excess of 730 square feet of living space, entering via the rustic external porch with slate roof, through to the internal entry with its staircase to the first floor, before proceeding through into the cosy lounge which features an exposed brick fireplace with a York stone flagged hearth and a Firefox clean-burn log burning stove. The adjacent dining kitchen benefits from a pretty view of the garden as well as access through to a conservatory which itself has French doors that give access out onto a paved patio area. The kitchen affords a range of hand painted, Shaker style cabinets and drawers in a muted shade with brushed steel handles, Oak worktops, a Belfast sink and integrated appliances including a five ring gas hob, a Bosch oven, grill, combination oven/microwave, fridge and freezer, automatic dishwasher and washing machine. On the first floor the master bedroom has a recently fitted mock sash double glazed window to the front and a mirror-fronted walk-in wardrobe. The second bedroom is also a double room with a window overlooking the pretty gardens and countryside beyond. A corner cupboard houses a Potterton gas central heating boiler and there is an access point to the part boarded and insulated loft. The fully tiled bathroom affords a modern four-piece suite in classic white comprising corner shower cubicle, vanity wash hand basin, deep bath tub with central tap and hand shower, and a low level W.C - an illuminated mirrored, recessed down-lights, and a chrome heated towel rail complete the look. Externally there is ample parking to the front on the gravel driveway whilst to the rear there are gorgeous gardens that extend to around 160 feet to include a private patio area, an outbuilding with power and light and a beautiful landscaped garden with well stocked borders brimming with cottage garden and shrub planting. Beyond the landscape areas an arbour gives way to a pebbled area which includes raised vegetable beds and fruit trees including apple and pear. At the far end of the garden is a further Indian stone patio and decked area with a pretty little summerhouse that takes full advantage of its South facing aspects - an ideal spot for alfresco dining and entertaining. As well as its beautiful homes, Mawdesley is renowned for its gorgeous countryside and peaceful way of life, yet is far from isolated, with easy access to the rail and motorway networks, ensuring major commercial centres such as Liverpool and Manchester are within reach for those with a commute to consider. Furthermore, there are a number of bustling towns nearby, including Chorley and the historic market town of Ormskirk, both of which offer a host of shops, bars and eateries, when one is looking for something a little more vibrant. This is the home that will remind you of why you want to live in Lancashire. Wake up to the good life and sunshine flooding your home with light, relax in the gorgeous gardens or cosy up with a good book by the log burning stove, enjoy the privacy and the countryside, stroll through the pretty village or get your boots on and go for a walk through the surrounding fields - the property and the setting are both just perfect, we love this home and we know you will too!
