Local shops, a post office, pub and restaurant are also all within walking distance. Despite this real feeling of rural living, the position is far from remote, with a number of other surrounding villages close-by, including Parbold, Eccleston and Croston, whilst swift links to surrounding towns and cities are available via the M6 motorway as well as the rail links to Manchester, Liverpool, Preston and Southport being nearby, which will be most welcome for those with a commute to consider, ensuring one can enjoy the aspiration country life without the fear of isolation. The expansive floor plan here affords a practical arrangement of space, which is just perfect for the lifestyle of a modern family; entering via the entrance hallway with its spindled staircase to the first floor and handy two piece cloakroom/WC, before proceeding through into the 22’ open plan kitchen/diner/family room, which provides that highly sought-after sociable environment for entertaining, with guests able to spill out onto the rear courtyard via the uPVC double glazed French doors. The kitchen is fitted with a range of wall and base units in cream with contrasting laminated work surfaces incorporating a breakfast bar and comes equipped with a number of integrated appliances, including high-level double electric oven, induction hob with extractor canopy, microwave, fridge/freezer, dishwasher and washer dryer . To the first floor, one will discover the main lounge, which manages to remain cosy despite its sizeable 23’ proportions and aided in no small part by its exposed beamed ceiling and feature fireplace with inset log-effect, electric fire. Three of the bedrooms are also located on this level, two of which benefits from modern fitted wardrobes. There is also a three piece en-suite shower room, which would make a lovely guest room, as well as the main family shower room, which is fitted with a smart three piece suite in white, comprising of WC, pedestal wash hand basin and shower cubicle. The second floor is a delightful retreat being reminiscent of a trendy boutique hotel room, the 21’ bedroom coming complete with beamed vaulted ceiling incorporating four Velux windows which bathe the room in natural light, a free-standing feature bathtub and a separate two piece washroom/WC, as well as a useful storage room. The retail unit has previously been run as a successful café but could similarly be utilised for a plethora of business activities, subject to the necessary approvals, or it could be rented out to provide an income, comprising of 22’ retail area, 16’ kitchen, storeroom and toilet facilities. Externally, the low-maintenance frontage is laid with stone paving, providing possibilities for outdoor seating and off-road parking to the front of the main house. The private rear courtyard is also laid with stone paving and enjoys an excellent degree of privacy, which will be ideal for those frequent barbeques. Available with the benefit of no onward chain, we cannot stress enough the importance of an internal inspection to appreciate all that this fabulous home has to offer.
