The sweeping driveway leads you from South Road to the substantial detached garage and the main entrance. Step into the vestibule and from there to the imposing hallway with solid oak flooring, which flows through much of the ground floor, all overlooked by the minstrel’s gallery.
Reception one is a welcoming living room with plenty of natural light from windows to two elevations and multifuel stove in imposing hearth. Reception two is currently used as the formal dining room with cast iron fireplace, whilst reception three is the delightfully cosy snug.
The hand made English Rose kitchen comprises a range of wall and base units topped by granite work surfaces and set on slate flooring. Integrated appliances include dishwasher and washing machine complemented by a range cooker, Belfast sink and Fisher Paykel refrigerator and freezer. Completing the ground floor is the cloakroom with wc and wash hand basin.
Externally, the gardens to the front are reminiscent of a village green planted with fruit trees all observed by the delightful summerhouse where you can sit, relax and enjoy the view. Closer to the house, box hedging sets off the character and the side garden is constructed in Italianate courtyard style. The southwest facing walled garden to the rear is bordered by mature espalier fruit trees and rowans making this private space a haven for wildlife and humans alike.
The substantial detached garage has two sets of double doors, power and light and a lovely external staircase leading up to the studio which makes a first class gymnasium or home office.
To the first floor bedroom one has exposed beams, bespoke wardrobes and windows to two elevations so you can enjoy the long view over fields and trees. Bedroom two is the perfect guest bedroom with en suite comprising rainfall mixer shower in cubicle,, wash hand basin and traditional wc with high cistern.
There are two further double bedrooms, the smaller of which is currently used as a home office, a laundry room which houses the Worcester boiler, and the stunning and elegant bathroom comprising free standing bath, wash hand basin, traditional wc with high cistern and rainfall shower in cubicle.
Within easy reach of primary transport routes, countryside walks and amenities in both Bretherton and the surrounding villages and with the added benefit of being in the catchment area for excellent schools, this is a wonderful place to call home.
