A simply stunning family home set behind private gates on one of the most desirable roads in Penwortham.
With uninterrupted open views to the rear and the front, this really is a unique position. Being set on an elevated plot only adds to the appeal.
As you enter through the gates into the driveway you get just a glimpse of what's to be found inside this beautiful period home.
You enter through the vestibule which nods to the period of the home with a heritage-style front door, decorative glazed side panels and original decorative tiled floor. The hall beyond is a great size, flooded with natural light and really is a room of its own.
There are many things to love about this home but one of my favourite areas is the open plan kitchen dining family room that spans most of the rear of the house. This is very much designed with entertaining in mind and the glazed frameless doors fold back to seamlessly connect the inside and the outside. The design of the kitchen is both elegant and practical. If I tried to list all the kitchen features, the list would be very long. I’ll just say that two of my favourite features are the 'U' shaped island with Corian surfaces, the perfect spot to catch up with friends over drinks, and the perfectly chilled beverages that would no doubt come from my other favourite feature the exceptional walk-in chiller room.
Although this space is open plan the snug seating area still gives a feeling of cosiness and has direct sightlines through the frameless glass doors into the gardens.
Located off the kitchen family room are two rooms that any discerning buyer will look for. The cinema room is a great feature and is ideal for movie nights, for the children to use when they have friends over or for watching that vital sporting event. There are doors which lead out to the patio which helps double up this space as an additional sitting room or snug. Similarly, if you are a musical family, it's a great place to practice your skills and as you will see this room has already been used for this purpose.
If you are someone that likes to work out then we also have you covered. The gym can be found to the front right of the house and has space for all your training equipment. There is also a full bathroom here including a steam shower which is ideal for relaxing after a tough workout.
On the left-hand side of the ground floor, we have the formal lounge running from front to back and is flooded with natural light given that its dual aspect. The focal point of the room is the impressive media wall with an inset television and floating feature living flame fire below. This is a great space for the family to catch up after a long day or to relax in front of the fire on a winter evening. The patio doors lead out to the rear patio and are like the rest of the rear of the house in the respect they link the outside and inside seamlessly.
Other family essentials found on the ground floor are the all-important utility room and separate WC.
The master bedroom suite is exactly as you'd expect to find in a house of this stature. It's decorated in calming neutral tones with feature lighting from the drop ceiling. The double doors which face to the rear lead to a balcony which gives wonderful views over the perfectly maintained rear garden. I’ve not seen a better place to sit and enjoy a morning coffee whilst watching the wildlife in the garden. The dressing area is flooded with natural light from a second set of double doors with access to the balcony and offers another picturesque view to take in whilst getting ready. There is an abundance of high-quality fitted wardrobes so even those with the largest clothing collections will have enough storage.
The en suite is finished impeccably. With his and hers floating sinks with storage below and mirrors above a walk-in double shower and beautiful wall and floor tiling. I think the bathroom is simply beautiful.
The other three bedrooms are all double rooms as you would expect and bedrooms 2 and 3 benefit from fitted wardrobes.
One of the bedrooms is currently fully fitted as an office space complete with bespoke bookscases, desk and cabinetry. What a place to work and to gain inspiration for that all-important project you are working on.
The family bathroom similar to the en suite has been finished exquisitely. The standout feature is the contemporary free-standing bath which is the ideal place to have a long soak after a day at the office or once the children are in bed. There is also a walk-in double shower. Whether you like a soak or a quick shower the bathroom caters for all.
When it comes to the garden it’s not an exaggeration to say that there are literally too many things to mention. It literally has everything you could ever imagine. I could never really do it full justice and the photos tell the best story. I'll simply say if you love entertaining, relaxing in the hot tub, year-round al fresco dining, toasting marshmallows on an open fire and want various places for the children to run, play and hide then you will not be disappointed with this garden.
The in-out driveway to the front has electric gates to either side to provide security and privacy. The parking area is extensive and can accommodate even the largest families and gatherings.
In my opinion, this is an exceptional house and will make a happy family home for the next owners for years to come. If you are fortunate enough to be looking at homes like this then it should be at the very top of your viewing list.
