Description: The bungalow occupies a most attractive semi-rural setting adjoining open fields yet convenient for comprehensive village amenities, access into Chorley and surrounding towns and cities and to the motorway intersections.
It was built in 1987 to the original owner’s bespoke design and to a specification that incorporated many fine features and quality internal joinery but is now in need of some superficial upgrading.
The graciously proportioned accommodation is orientated to take full advantage of the pleasant south-facing extensive gardens which provide a total of 1,375sq.Yds (0.284 acres – 0.115 hectares) or thereabouts.
The original concept provided for the possible future enlargement by creating a loft conversion which is sufficiently spacious to provide two further bedrooms and bathroom.
