Situated in the pretty rural parish of Lathom, this delightful 17th century detached farmhouse cottage, that formed part of Lord Lathom estate, will not disappoint. Having been extended and recently refurbished throughout the property successfully combines stylish contemporary interiors & rustic period features with a practical layout that is just perfect for the everyday modern lifestyle.

Discreetly located on Lowry Hill Lane the property sits in a private enclosed garden plot with countryside aspects to the front and rear. A private gated entrance opens onto a driveway for ample off road parking for at least 4 cars and there are good sized mature gardens to side and rear with both a paved and newly decked patio area that enjoy sunny southerly aspects.

The property is freehold and boasts triple glazed windows to the front and double glazed windows and doors to the rear, a recently upgraded LPG gas central heating system with Worcester combination boiler plus a charming and characterful interior that has been sympathetically updated with freshly plastered walls and ceilings complimented with new radiators and a modern white finish throughout. A newly added porch accessed off the driveway to the side of the house is the main entrance to the house and provides useful storage whilst leading through to a new open plan design and remodelled kitchen diner overlooking the gardens and fitted with sleek handleless units incorporating a range of built in appliances, Quartz worktops and a breakfast bar. Off the dining room there is an internal hallway leading to a lovely sitting room with exposed brick fireplace and working fire, another versatile room that could be a snug , office or 4th bedroom with another original working fireplace (may need sweeping), plus a good sized utility room & ground floor WC. Upstairs there is a large recently updated bathroom with bath, shower cubicle, vanity wash hand basin, low level WC and large storage cupboard plus three bedrooms. The master bedroom is a notable highlight and has pleasant aspects overlooking fields to front and rear.

The pretty villages and towns of West Lancashire all within a short drive and the bustling little town of Burscough just a stone’s throw away with its many excellent amenities, cafes, bars and railways stations giving easy access to the wider region.
