4 2 5
Enviably resting along the prestigious Wigan Lane in Higher Whitley, one of area’s most coveted settings, this substantial Edwardian home offers an astonishing 4240 square feet of beautiful living space spread across three floors and is brimming with lovely, period touches and features. The property itself boasts instant kerb appeal and sits imposingly within a large, private plot with beautiful mature gardens to the rear.
Internally, this eye-catching residence enjoys an array of striking original period detail; from the customary high ceilings, large feature bay windows, to the ornate plaster coving, architraves & mouldings.
The ground floor alone here provides some 1500 square feet of living space, (which is larger than the total floorspace of an average modern four bed detached home) & in brief comprises a vestibule & hallway, off which are two large reception rooms with feature fireplaces & pretty bay windows. The kitchen and utility room are located to the rear of the home, there is a superb 23ft x 17ft family room which enjoys access out onto the extensive decked patio which overlooks the rear garden, plus a ground floor bathroom & separate wc.
Upstairs offers 5 bedrooms (4 of which are large doubles) plus a modern principal bathroom suite.
To the lower ground floor there are large cellars which are currently used as snugs / offices. The cellars alone are the size of a decent bungalow and boast beautiful exposed brick walls, power, lighting, central heating and fibre optic internet. Beyond the cellars is the extensive garage area (which is 60ft at its longest) - this potential multipurpose area could be converted into further living space, used to house a number of vehicles or as a place to run a business from.
Externally, the stunning gardens are extensive, mature and notably private. The rear is completely enclosed and because of the south-westlery aspect, it enjoys sunshine throughout the day, plus there are lovely views from the large decked patio area. To the front there is a block paved driveway providing further off road parking. Locally, the town centre of Wigan is a short drive away, plus Swinley provides clients with numerous shops, restaurants, bars and cafes. The picturesque Haigh Hall is just walking distance away, as are the area's acclaimed schools. The property is warmed by gas central heating and the entire system was renewed just 5 years ago. Early viewings are highly recommended on this beautiful period home.
