Nestled in a serene and picturesque setting on one of Lancashire’s most sought-after lanes this magnificent detached property from the 1920s features five spacious bedrooms, a generous detached annexe and superb garage facilities.

Within walking distance to Parbold village and convenient for rail and motorway networks, Miry Lane is home to some of the area's finest properties and as such has been designated a conservation area by West Lancashire County council.

Set in a secluded and spacious plot of 4.15 acres, Lowood provides the perfect lifestyle for families featuring a beautiful heated outdoor pool and patio, manicured gardens with wide lawns and a rose garden, a grassy tennis court, stables ideal for a pony with an enclosed paddock plus private woodland. The house is accessed via a quiet village lane, with its own electronic gate and a driveway that can accommodate several cars and leads to an attached garage. There is also another driveway with hardstanding and a large 522 sq. ft detached garage (compared to a typical double garage of 300 sq. ft).

The property boasts almost 5,500 sq. ft of luxurious living space including garaging and annexe. It features five double bedrooms, with bed 5 converted into a study with lovely double aspects. There is a Clive Christian handcrafted family bathroom, a lavish ensuite guest room with a cosy reading area, a splendid formal lounge with a large bay window overlooking the manicured gardens and an original feature fireplace with a crackling open fire, a formal dining room perfect for hosting guests, a morning room with a warm wood burning stove, a Mark Wilkinson ‘Cooks’ kitchen with an AGA and granite worktops plus a bespoke traditional timber framed conservatory that harmonises with the period details of the property and provides a gorgeous family room with stunning views of the outside patios and swimming pool.

The annexe is privately situated in the gardens with its own entrance from Miry Lane and has been designed to offer great entertaining space for guests with a large games room, its own fitted kitchen, orangery and shower room. It is as big as many 2-bedroom bungalows and could easily be converted into a self-contained dwelling if a buyer is looking for a granny flat or a property that is suitable for multi-generational living. The garages can fit 3 large vehicles.

Parbold takes its name from the old English for ‘Pear Orchard’ which aptly reflects the quiet and peaceful rural atmosphere of the area. Surrounded by small agricultural communities through which the river Douglas runs on its route from Wigan to the Ribble estuary, the village is ideally positioned for access to the extensive walking routes through the surrounding countryside. The area is dominated by Parbold Hill and the rough-hewn monument in the shape of a bottle which sits below its summit, known locally as Parbold Bottle which was originally erected to commemorate the great reform bill of 1832.

The village is well-regarded for its friendly community spirit, hosting street festivals and events throughout the year. There are several local pubs, primary schools, shops, two churches, a canal side cafe, and Parbold picture house which screens national theatre dance and independent film.

Lowood is also well-placed for access to the motorway network, with Junction 27 of the M6 just four miles to the East. Parbold train station has direct services to Wigan, with a journey time of around 12 minutes, and direct routes from here to London, Birmingham, Manchester and Edinburgh.

The local Parbold Primary School is rated Outstanding by OFSTED and there are two private schools within reaching distance (Scarisbrick Hall and Clevelands in Bolton).

This is a first-class location in a wonderfully verdant setting, ideally situated for the commuter who desires a home close to a village which has easy access to motorway and rail links but at the same time provides a real haven to escape and relax.

We are advised that the property is freehold. The house is warmed by gas central heating and has mains gas and drains. Please note that all land and property measurements are approximate and we advise any prospective buyers to get verification with their solicitors prior to exchanging contracts.
