On the cusp of Lostock and Heaton, an esteemed location, where the very best of local schools and amenities are within easy reach, discover spacious, high specification family living, on Mossdale Avenue, in the ever-popular Arundel Park development.
A peaceful residential neighbourhood, pull up on the tarmac driveway, or inside the large garage, projecting ahead and to the right.
Flanked on both sides by swathes of lawn edged by shrubbery and embellished by a mature tree and traditional lamp post, No. 20, Mossdale Avenue with its evocative Tudor style gabled front, presents a picture-perfect vision of a handsome and inviting family home.
Make your way inside, through the contemporary part-glazed front door, and onto the buff, Mediterranean-feel tiles of the entrance hall. Crisp white walls create a light and spacious welcome, as the modern oak and glass staircase rises up ahead.
Freshen up in the cloakroom, fitted with wash basin and WC, before continuing through into the kitchen on the right. Immediately evident is the exemplary finish of this culinary hub of the home: note the quality of the flooring, designed in a diagonal fashion underfoot; the contemporary trio of pendant lights above the curved central island-breakfast bar and impressive appliances serving your every need.
Warmed by a designed vertical radiator, cook up a feast for family and friends on the large Rangemaster cooker with gas hob. Encased within the sleek floor to ceiling units there is also a Samsung American styled larder fridge-freezer, plumbed to dispense chilled water and ice. There is even space for a subsidiary freestanding fridge-freezer to the side. Ample storage for all your epicurean essentials is available within the cupboards and drawers to the sides of the room and within the central island.
Plumbing for washer and dryer alongside further storage are found through the doors to the right in the utility room which connects with the large garage beyond. Sneak a peek at the garage and consider the potential for creating a home office within this space, or even by extending above…
A home with fantastic flow, from the kitchen, dine in the sunny conservatory to the rear. Overlooking the lush landscaped garden, throw open the doors to embrace alfresco lunches in the summertime.
Also opening up from the kitchen through bifolding part-glazed doors discover the dining room. Herringbone parquet flooring lends a formal feel in here, creating a room perfect for festive occasions and family entertaining. Chandelier lighting above the table combines contemporary chic with classic elegance, whilst double doors, fitted with blinds, open to the idyllic garden beyond.
After dinner flow through to the living room, a light, bright room running from front to rear and drawing in daylight from the bay window to the front and bank of windows to the back. Spacious enough to offer an alternative area for dining before the broad bay window – consider the potential to utilise the current dining room as a second lounge or play area for the children.
To the rear, hunker down for an evening in front of the contemporary glass enclosed fireplace in the winter, watching your favourite programmes.
When slumber calls, ascend the oak and glass balustrade staircase to the upper level. Emerge on a light-filled landing, where there is ample space for a desk or piano before the width of windows. There is also a large airing cupboard, handy for towels and linen.
Directly ahead from the top of the stairs, flow through into the master bedroom, dreamily dressed in soothing neutral tones and brimming with stylish fitted furniture including a range of drawers and mirrored wardrobes. A blend of pendant and contemporary spotlighting ensures a well-illuminated bedroom space, with fitted low level cabinets to either side of the bed.
Refresh and revive in the ensuite, where a large walk-in shower cubicle is fitted with a square rainfall head with a handheld attachment. Clad in large charcoal tiles within the shower, with a feature pattern of white, black and buff tiling to the centre, the remaining walls are coated in crisp white. A wash basin is inset within a wooden vanity unit, containing several cupboards and drawers for your toiletries. A mirrored cabinet proffers additional storage.
Next door, discover the home office, carpeted and cosy, and accommodating a corner desk unit, book cases and a wardrobe. With leafy views outside, settle down to work in peace and seclusion. Should you wish, this room could easily serve as a double bedroom.
Nestled in the middle of the home, refreshment and relaxation await in the family bathroom. Refreshingly styled in monochrome tiling and with a splash of turquoise within the separate shower cubicle, sunken storage is recessed in the wall above the centrally filling bath tub. There is also a large wash basin with vanity unit drawers beneath alongside a chrome heated towel rail and WC.
Children will immediately fall in love with the double bedroom next door to the family bathroom. Currently fitted with bunk beds and carpeted underfoot, one wall captures the thrills of the cosmos in its Decal décor. A large window to the rear frames views out over the verdant garden.
Overlooking the front, a fourth bedroom, provides a peaceful single, with space for wardrobes and chest of drawers.
Returning downstairs, step outside and into your own slice of paradise. Dine and entertain on the large patio, which runs along the rear of the home and is easily accessed from the conservatory and dining room.
Take the impressively styled cobble steps and admire the landscaped lawn to the right, perfect for cartwheels and kickabouts. To the rear, tall established planting provides privacy and screening, preceded by pretty planting and seasonal colour.
A serene highlight of this garden is the cascading water feature, which wends its way down the left hand-side of the garden, running into a pond with a fountain, creating a soothing sensory experience. Close your eyes, soak up the sunshine and serenity and relax with a cool, refreshing drink.
