Brimming with local historical significance & offering clients a totally unique opportunity to purchase something that is unlike anything else on the market right now - Jolly Mill Cottage was once part of a working corn mill that utilised the River Douglas to the rear & is believed to date back as far as the 14th Century, making it one of the oldest properties in the village.
Bought as a modest detached home around 12 years ago, our clients have lovingly & painstakingly renovated, remodelled & extended the property to what is is today. A triumph in design and execution, great care has been taken to maintain the original look of the home at the front, whilst to the rear, the mix of contemporary glass and specially sourced brick give the property a simply stunning style. Over the past 6 months our clients have added a high spec bar / entertainment room to the side and also had a bespoke double detached garage built (which has been built double-skin with window lintels offering the possibility to be converted into an annexe-style room / living area). The overall result now amounts to an astonishing SQFT of living space that in brief comprises; a front porch , two large reception rooms, with the stunning L-shaped open plan kitchen diner, which flows nicely into the rear sitting area which boasts bi-folding doors that lead out onto the garden. A useful utility area leads into the newly installed bespoke bar that is the perfect entertaining area, but could also be used to run a business from, should clients wish.
Upstairs there are four double bedrooms, with sleek en-suites to both the master bedroom & bed 2, with the master also enjoying its own balcony, a stunning feature vaulted ceiling & French Doors overlooking the garden & across the picturesque countryside of Douglas Valley.
Externally, the home rests within a wonderful 2 acre plot & the owners have cleverly made maximum use of the location and its views by professionally landscaping the rear plot and opening everything up, the property soaks up the beautiful scenery & rolling valley and serves as the perfect outdoor area for entertaining. Newly installed Indian Stone patios offers ample room to sit and enjoy the views. There are two access points for off road parking here and enough space for numerous vehicles, plus access to the newly built detached garage.
Locally, the property sits on the prestigious Chorley Road, a short distance to the centre of Standish itself, M6 motorway links and within the catchment for the areas. Early viewings are essential to appreciate the quality & size of home on offer. Council Tax Band G. We understand this property to be FREEHOLD.
