Resting on beautiful 1/5 of acre plot & surrounded by lush countryside & open fields, Watergate Lodge is an instantly recognisable landmark property that was originally built as one of the lodges for Adlington Hall.
Dating back to the 1880s & brimming with eye-catching kerb appeal, the lodge rests within lovely, mature gardens & offers buyers a unique opportunity to purchase something that boasts considerable potential & is steeped in significant local history.
Offering lots of flexibility, the home could be simply bought & used as a single storey building (which it currently is) or could be possibly developed & extended (subject to the necessary consent) to create something truly unique.
The owners have made numerous improvements over recent years to help enhance the living space, such as upgrading the bathroom & kitchen, plus replacing the boiler around 2 years ago. Freshly laid carpets & some redecoration in parts are other notable additions & the home in brief comprises; a porch, large main lounge with feature multi-fuel burner, dining room & modern fitted kitchen with underfloor heating, two bedrooms (with an ensuite to the master bed) & a principal bathroom suite. Additionally there is a loft space for storage (accessed via a drop down ladder).
Externally, the plot extends to the front, side and the rear. There is an attached garage at the rear offering off road parking, plus ample room to the front to create a generous driveway. The gardens are mature and because of the rural setting, the plot enjoys almost panoramic views across countryside. To the rear is a pretty brook known as Bucklow Brook runs at the rear of the garden. The plot in total is 1/5 acre in size & the rear faces due south & therefore enjoys sun all day round. Locally, the towns of both Wigan & Chorley, plus the village of Standish are all within easy reach, as are numerous scenic trails, walks & the picturesque Hic Bibi Nature Reserve, plus the stunning area of Rivington. Early viewings are highly recommended on this unique, landmark property.
