This property must be viewed to fully appreciate the quality and extent of accommodation and also the stunning semi-rural position it offers. A myriad of local walks are on the doorstep towards the River Douglas, whilst Preston City Centre and access to the M6 (junction 28) at Leyland are both approximately 11 miles with local train stations found at Rufford, Croston and nearby Burscough giving access to Liverpool, Preston and Manchester.
The property has been tastefully extended over the years to provide a stunning family home. There is however further potential (subject to planning) to create an annexe/relative suite by converting the large integral double garage.
Entrance is taken from the front into the porch via a traditional timber door with leaded glazed insert and side panels which then opens up into a delightful Hallway. Natural light floods into this space from a side facing window whilst an impressive mahogany spindled staircase rises to the first floor accommodation. Useful under stairs storage is provided and there is access to a generous side Porch/boot room.
The beautifully presented Lounge was previously two rooms and was knocked through to provide one large reception space. Benefitting from both a window to the front and French doors out to the side this delightful room is flooded with natural light which adds to the neutral décor and overall sense of spaciousness that this room provides. Other features to this room include coving, decorative ceiling roses and wall light points. Secondary heating is provided in addition to the central heating by way of a large multi fuel burning stove with marble hearth and mantle shelf above.
The stunning Breakfast Kitchen was completely re-modelled in 2015 and fitted with an extensive range of cream gloss wall and base units and Island unit which features built in storage below, built in wine cooler and impressive granite top which attaches the walnut breakfast table.

There is a Franke one and a half bowl sink unit with swan neck mixer tap, tiled splashbacks and attractive tiled flooring. In addition to the front facing window there is a walk-in bay to the rear with French doors out to the garden and glazed side screens.
Off the Kitchen, the accommodation continues to impress with a further generous reception room, also being dual aspect with French doors out to the garden. This room is currently utilised as a Dining Room and gives direct access to the integral Double Garage. This space could be converted to a possible annexe(subject to planning/building regulations). The double garage has twin up and over doors, power and lighting plus it houses the oil fired central heating boiler.
