This excellent detached property is approached via a quiet country track in one acre of beautifully landscaped gardens enjoying a gorgeous semi-rural location set amidst historical greenbelt farmland that formed part of the Lathom Hall Country Estate.

Despite a feeling of seclusion this lifestyle rural home has excellent connections to the major towns and cities in the northwest with train links to Liverpool, Preston, Wigan, Manchester and Wigan all less than 10 minutes drive and the market town of Ormskirk and vibrant Burscough town centre both also only 10 minutes drive. The M58 motorway junction is conveniently only 4 minutes drive away with links to M6 & M57 motorways.

It's no surprise to us that with a location as good as this that houses down the track are rarely sold (only one other property has sold in the last 35 years). Available with the added benefit of no upward chain this three-bedroom detached home has been significantly upgraded by our clients with various extensions and improvements added with great attention to detail in their construction. The internal living space of nearly 2,000 SQ.FT. flows across a single storey, with picture windows in every room enjoying wonderful views across the private gardens and surrounding countryside and ancient farmland.

There are three bedrooms, three bathrooms, front sitting room with working open fireplace, utility room and a high quality cooks fitted kitchen that provides an extensive range of fitted units incorporating a breakfast bar and a full range of appliances including a range cooker and a dishwasher.

The latest extension and scheme of works was completed in 2014 and added a stunning glass roof orangery that provided a bright and spacious family room linking the dining room to the kitchen as well as adding a self-contained home office / potential guest bedroom with its own shower room/WC to the rear. This stunning space is perfect for modern-day living with a stylish open plan design that merges interior and exterior spaces and invites the outside in with French doors that open out into a fantastic sunken paved patio area with brick built wall providing a sheltered area for outside dining. Steps lead up to a beautiful lawn with fully stocked borders and another decked terrace patio that enjoys sunny south-westerly aspects.

The large gardens are well-screened and incredibly private with many areas to sit and enjoy the sun all-day, making this the perfect home for enjoying the outdoor lifestyle. Being surrounded by countryside this is a great garden for nature and is regularly visited by deer, foxes, a wide range of birds, rabbits, squirrels and much more. There is a lovely enclosed front garden together with a driveway providing parking for 3 or more cars.

This is a truly remarkable one-of-a-kind home that must be viewed to be fully appreciated.

We are advised by our clients that the property is freehold and on mains water. It is warmed by oil fired central heating and has a septic tank. The council tax band is C.
