Tucked behind a neat hedge row, with views that stretch out towards the Welsh Hills, discover Number 1159, Chorley Old Rd.
Pull up onto the paved driveway, which can accommodate two cars (or a boat!) and head towards the arched front entrance. A handy porch offers space for all your shoes and coats before stepping through the original timber glazed doorway into the welcoming hallway. Rich in colour, the walnut timber floor immediately draws you into the space contrasting perfectly with the white panelled staircase and aqua blue wall finish.
Immediately ahead the spacious, open living area makes way for a galley style kitchen. The focal point being the large sliding doors stepping straight out onto the rear garden making the most of those far reaching open views.
Cream in-frame timber units topped with a solid wood worktop line the walls either side. A Belfast style sink sits nicely by the window. Space for a range style oven sits to the left with stainless steel hood above. A built-in dishwasher is available too. An oak beamed ceiling and slate floor beneath foot completes the modern country style look.
Family and friends can perch at the hand carved breakfast bar than spans between kitchen and living space. Sneak a peek through the portal windows either side before returning to the living room.
Natural light flows in through the rear and side bay window to create a bright and pleasant space to relax. Snuggle down to read a book by the contemporary wood burner stove neatly placed in the corner of the room to maximise the already spacious floorspace.
Throw open the patio doors of the adjoining conservatory and step straight out onto the garden from here. The solid roof providing extra warmth through the winter months.
Back in the lounge, push open the doors and move on through to the formal dining room. An original style feature fireplace presents a striking focal point to centre a large dining table around. There’s even space for a piano too. The large bay overlooking the front garden is dressed in heavy drapery giving a sense of grandeur against the neutrally decorated walls.
Returning to the entrance hall, sneak a peek at the downstairs WC tucked beneath the stairs. Follow the spindled staircase up to the first floor.
Directly ahead is the master bedroom where another bay French window takes advantage of the vast open fields that lie behind the property. Fitted wardrobes span the full length with plenty room for all your clothes tucked inside the walnut and frosted glass cabinetry. Decorated in cream and brown hues the room is a lovely calming space to rest your head.
Next door awaits the second spacious double bedroom in biscuity cream tones ready to move straight into.
The third bedroom, set to the front of the house makes a comfortable single, ideal for a nursery or guest bedroom or perhaps a study for those who need to work from home.
Serving the bedrooms is the neutral family bathroom, with a built-in bath, w.c and white pedestal sink teaming perfectly with the Travertine tiling to both walls and floor. Edging the bath and sprinkled around the inset mirror are harmonising mosaics. Tucked in the corner is a separate shower enclosure.
To the second floor, the newly converted loft provides space for a fourth bedroom. With large window giving plenty light and views to the rear there is plenty space here for a double bed. Next door lies a handy modern w.c with vanity sink with Velux window providing light.
The garden is a welcoming paradise for kids and adults alike. Mature planting, pretty rockeries and a greenhouse for keen gardeners; teamed with a built-in tree house, climbing wall, and lawn area for the family to enjoy all year round. Relax in the summer sun on the decking outside the French doors of the living room and enjoy the unfolding fields behind. Sit around the chimenea on the patio or under the pergola when friends are over to enjoy a summer BBQ.
For those looking for a bit more, the rear summerhouse provides extra space for those looking to work from home or those in need of a workshop, hobby or just plain storage space. 4.5m x 3.5m in size and with a height of 8ft, this ideal addition to the home also comes with light, power and water.
