Mill Lane, Upholland, Wigan, WN8
FOR SALE BY OPEN HOUSE WIGAN ESTATE AGENTS
FREEHOLD COTTAGE, FULLY MODERNISED WITH EXCELLENT FACILITIES, NO CHAIN.
In this price band buyers are looking for something special, something extra. Well luckily the current owners of this property have invested a lot of time and money to make it EXTRA SPECIAL. Originally two semi-detached homes, the owners have cleverly retained the charm of the old cottages in most rooms but have made the kitchen area thoroughly modern and fully equipped.
The focal point of the beamed lounge is a wood burner set in the old stone fireplace which has space either side of the chimney breast currently used for a TV and a display unit. The chosen wood laminate flooring is perfect for this room having the benefit of modern materials but still giving the required period look. All in all this is a lovely comfortable social space that induces an air of peace and calm.
Across the elegant hall is what will probably be the most popular room, the kitchen. This room is an ergonomically designed working environment that is also as a fantastic second social space. A large Range Gas Cooker is set amongst ample work top space and storage units. Set back from the cooker an island gives more work top space and storage. This unit also doubles as a breakfast bar that despite the name will be used all day long. The work top areas are of quality granite.
Adjoined to the kitchen is the dining room which with over 11 square metres it will accommodate most requirements. As you will see from our photographs it is currently set with a table for 6 people but there is ample room for a larger one. Alternatively the room could be utilised as a second lounge or as another bedroom.
Upstairs the Master Bedroom has open beams and the chimney breast comes through from the lounge and again it gives this room the same special atmosphere. Along the corridor are bedrooms 2 & 3 plus the bathroom. The bathroom is finished to the same standard as the rest of the property with a basin, toilet and a large spa bath with shower over.
Externally this lovely home benefits from originally being two properties with an abundance of space on three sides. Access for vehicles is from the Beacon View Drive and on this side of the property there is a massive hard area that would be suitable for parking 4/5 vehicles. There is also a large grass area plus a 40 square metre games room that currently houses a full size snooker table. ( The owners are open to offers for this). Of course there is a myriad of uses for this room: store, office, gym, games.
An expertly flagged path continuously flows around the house and leads to a private ‘sun trap’ part of the garden. This lovely space will no doubt be well used for relaxation BBQ’s, kiddies play, etc.
Locals will know the advantage of living in the community of Upholland. It is close to the M6 (junction 26 & 27), M58 and A580. The village has a great community feel that boasts lots of shops, eateries, and 2 GP surgeries. There are two local golf clubs, Dean Wood and Beacon Park.
The Beacon Country Park is less than a mile away and is described on the Westlancs.gov.uk as: ‘ Our flagship countryside site, consisting of over 300 acres of rolling countryside spread across Ashurst Beacon between Upholland, Dalton and Skelmersdale. The country park is used for many activities and is considered a great benefit to local residents.’.
Finally, with the dearth of quality homes locally in this price band, this extra special property is certainly a ‘Must’ for your ‘Must See’ list.
