If one is searching for something a little more specialised, an individual home which occupies a niche in the market place, then this characterful detached residence may well suit one’s requirements, not only offering spacious accommodation within the main home, extending to circa 1,927 square feet, but also ancillary living space within the detached bungalow-style annex, which itself affords circa 566 square feet of accommodation. This superb enhancement by out clients has added wonderful flexibility to the property, perhaps for a dependent relative who requires their own private living space, but with the reassurance of being within the family unit, such as a teenager or grandparent, or indeed for some other purpose, whether it be a recreational area, such as a home cinema, games room or gymnasium, or indeed a work space. This intriguing home is situated along this delightful country lane within the highly desirable district of Aughton and close to picturesque Downholland, therefore enjoying a wonderfully picturesque setting, with open countryside views to both the front and rear, giving a real feeling of rural living, which will be perfect for those relaxing evening strolls with the dogs after a stressful day in the office.

The main living area measures a vast 28’ x 23’, which will be perfect for the family, as well as providing that much desired wonderfully sociable entertaining space, with guests enjoying a seamless transfer from the comfort of the lounge to the dinner table. The lounge boasts a gorgeous feature fireplace with the all-important solid-fuel burner to offer that relaxing crackling soundtrack to one’s evening, whilst the dining area benefits from direct access to the rear garden via the patio doors.
