This is an extremely unique opportunity to purchase a landmark home in the beautifully maintained & picturesque canal side village of Crooke located off Wigan Road between Shevington and Wigan. Keepers Cottage is a gorgeous rendered period home that has undergone various improvements and renovations over the years to provide modern style family living accommodation totalling nearly 3,000 square feet of actual internal living space.

Please note the house has been renovated and modernised to a high standard in recent years but would now benefit from some cosmetic updating and is sold as seen - a fact reflected in the competitive asking price.

Upon entering the property a wide entrance hallway leads to a very impressive lounge with exposed beams and a broad inglenook fireplace featuring a herringbone brick back with a large log burner. At the heart of this home is a modernised farmhouse-style kitchen with central island and breakfast bar all complimented with a range of applicants and Granite worktops leads through a rear dining hall and beyond into a gorgeous oak beamed orangery which provides an additional family room/playroom or study enjoying serene views across the extensive and secluded lawn garden which is interrupted with fruit trees and offers a haven for wildlife. Downstairs there is also a cloakroom and substantial (larger than many kitchens) utility / boot room which can be found at the other side of the house with a stable door leading directly to the side patio. Upstairs there 5/6 double bedrooms over two doors of accommodation including a generously proportioned master bedroom which has an equally sizeable en-suite shower room plus they are bed 6 as a large dressing room. Also on each floor there are two full-sized bathrooms.

The property is approved via a private tow bridge over the canal leading to parking at the front and gates which open to a large parking area and substantial garage. A path leads to a side entrance opening into extensive south-west facing gardens with a rear boundary running along the river bank. We are advised that the plot extends to approximately 2 acre or thereabouts (we advise clients to verify this with their solicitors) and features a wide range of established trees/woodland, a sun terrace with a barbecue area which is ideal for al fresco dining on summer evenings, a conservatory/garden room which houses a hot tub and numerous seating areas offering the perfect spot to enjoy the tranquillity of Crooke Village.

Set within a beautifully maintained & picturesque canal-side setting, Crooke village has an award winning children's nursery, country pub and a gorgeous marina as well as easy access to amenities in both Wigan and Shevington and excellent road and motorway networks.
