Set in a stunning location with far reaching views across open farmland to the hills beyond and within the Top Locks Conservation Area. Just a short walk from the Leeds Liverpool Canal and the locally renowned Ship Inn it is far from remote within walking distance of Burscough centre, train stations and commutable to Liverpool, Warrington and Manchester.

Skilfully extended this three bed property offers deceptively spacious, high quality accommodation that really has to be viewed to be appreciated. It is immaculately presented with high quality fixtures and fittings. The front facing pretty sitting room is warm and inviting with its solid oak flooring, original fireplace with multi fuel stove, high ceiling and bay window. A family sized dining room, with built in display cabinets leads into the generous sized kitchen. Set out with the serious cook in mind it offers granite worktops, integrated appliances and double oven with induction hob. There is even room for a small sofa to sit and enjoy the view of the main garden through the patio doors. Upstairs there are 3 bedrooms and a family bathroom. The master bed boasts a vaulted ceiling with bespoke lighting, large enough to take a super king sized bed and a good sized, walk in closet with additional eaves storage.

Outside, there is a pretty raised front garden with shared side access to the private, gated rear garden. There is a charming private courtyard style patio with useful concealed storage and wood store with ample space for outside dining and seating area. The extensive lawn is bordered by well-stocked mature shrubs that offer year round colour and interest. An additional patio area makes the most of the sunny aspect. A brick built garden room / utility with its Belfast sink, electrics and plumbing completes the main garden. An original cast iron gate leads onto the additional plot of land that houses a large wooden shed, pergola and generous parking area. Laid mainly to lawn with fruit trees and shrubs and a second wood store there is room for a greenhouse or allotment if desired. The Council Tax Band for this property is C.
