Cosily set behind a crop of privet hedging, find deceptively-sized, red-brick and whitewashed walls of Number 60, Rigby Lane.
Plentiful parking is available on the road directly outside the house, or slot the motor into the garage to the rear.
Take the path alongside the neat rectangle of front lawn, up the steps and past the seating area to the traditional front door with original brass bell-push.
Step through into the porch, and beyond into the spacious entrance hallway where the elegant staircase ascends ahead.
Carpeted and cosy, take the door to the right which leads into the bright and inviting living room.
High ceilings are embellished with a frosting of ornate architraves, with light permeating every corner courtesy of the bountiful bay window to the front, aided by a tall window overlooking the side.
Snuggled down with the family, multi-fuel stove lit and roaring whilst admiring views of the birds flitting about in the woods, framed beautifully beyond.
Returning to the entrance hall, continue ahead through a glass-paned door into another bright and welcoming space.
Free-flowing, a spacious dining room to the right swims in light from the large rear bay window. Control its flow and create the perfect ambience using the adjustable wooden shutters.
Atmospheric teal walls meet with crisp white above the original picture rails for a fresh feel in this formal dining space.
Spacious and open, gather all the family around the dining table, set before a feature fireplace, for an evening’s dinner and entertainment.
On romantic date-nights in, after dinner, cuddle up in the snug in front of a film for a cosy end to the evening.
Streaming with light, the kitchen is discovered beyond the snug lounge, a wall of windows overlooking the patio garden to the side.
Cook up a storm on the homely Range cooker, with gas hob. Space for a tall fridge-freezer to the far end with plumbing for a washing machine on the opposite side, beneath the window.
Wooden units sit over and beneath charcoal countertops, providing a wealth of storage for pans, plates, crockery and cutlery.
A door leads out to the paved patio seating area outside, but for now continue through into a handy utility space, beyond which lies an office with WC.
Ideal for home workers, this quiet spot, tucked away from the main socialising areas of the home allows you to separate work from pleasure. There is even a handy downstairs WC leading off from this room.
Returning to the entrance hall, take the fawn-coloured, carpeted, open-spindle stairs up to the first floor.
Looking out over towards the woodland at the front, discover the sumptuous master bedroom.
Elegantly decorated in shades of sugarplum with a feature wall of shimmering, patterned wallpaper, this evocative room with its warm colours is a true den of dreams.
Across from the bed, an original cast-iron fireplace adds further ambience, an eye-catching focal point.
Sneak a peek beyond the wooden door by the window to discover handy built-in wardrobe space. Such a spacious bedroom, there is ample room for a dressing table, chest of drawers and other furnishings.
Two more bedrooms await on this level. To the rear, another large double bedroom with space for a bed, sofa and corner desk. Ideal for a school-aged son or daughter with homework assignments to complete.
As with the master bedroom, light flows in from two aspects.
The third bedroom on this level faces the front of the house with fantastic views of the leafy woodland opposite through a tall window.
Freshen up with funk and flair in the classically tiled family bathroom, with bath, shower attachment, WC and wash basin. Light flows in through the deep-set window.
Teenagers looking for peace and privacy from the rest of the flock? Say no more…
Take the stairs up to the second floor, to discover a bonus bedroom all on its own.
Emerge onto the light, bright landing, where a contemporary feel pervades amidst the whitewashed walls.
Step onto the plush grey carpet of the fourth bedroom. Lavishly-sized, a vaulted ceiling creates a sense of airiness and room to grow.
Recessed spaces and eaves provide additional storage space, with plenty of room for furnishings.
Step out into the rear garden, so secluded and private. Colourful planters brimming with seasonal plants surround the patio.
A sheltered space not overlooked and protected from the wind, sit outside and soak up the sun, or enjoy summer barbecues with family and friends.
In the front garden, also screened from view by tall hedges, listen to the birdsong from the woodland opposite, particularly during springtime breeding season.
Watch the sunset whilst seated at the front, with a glass of wine in hand. Idyllic in the summertime with the long drawn out evenings, and in autumn, snuggled beneath a blanket.
