Asking Price £850,000
Stunning detached farmhouse enviably located in one of Wigan's most coveted settings.
Resting within a beautiful, mature plot & surrounded by picturesque woods, open fields & the pretty Leeds-Liverpool Canal, Abbey Farm, Arley Lane is an instantly recognisable 18th Century landmark property that is brimming with historical & local significance.
Believed to pre-date the canal itself, this wonderful detached farmhouse offers buyers a unique opportunity to purchase something that is not only steeped in significant local history, but something that seldom comes on the open market.
Sharing links with the Grade II listed Arley Hall (the clubhouse for the prestigious Wigan Golf Club), Abbey Farm is unlike anything else on the market right now. Totalling a very generous 3192 square feet of wonderful living space that contains numerous original features such as superb York Flagged stone floors, original beams & rustic exposed brick chimneys - the home simply must be viewed internally to be fully appreciated.
The ground floor totals some 1800 square feet of living space that in brief comprises; a front porch, two large reception rooms with feature fireplaces & beautiful, beamed ceilings, an elegant bespoke conservatory which takes in superb views of the garden, a large dining area, a downstairs WC and a fitted farmhouse style kitchen beyond which is a utility room. Upstairs provides four bedrooms with en-suite off the master (bedroom 1), and a principal bathroom suite. There is an additional bedroom (bedroom 5) to the second floor which has a stunning exposed truss. Externally, the idyllic setting could not be bettered; the main garden rests adjacent to the canal & the entire plot is a delight - mature, well stocked and totally private, plus because of the westerly aspect, the garden enjoys lots of late afternoon sun. The plot extends to all four sides & there are some beautiful patio areas for sitting out, a lovely potting shed / greenhouse, plus ample off road parking via the driveway which also gives access to the attached double garage. There is also a totally unique & stunning feature wall which is a mix of brick & stone & features pretty castellations & abbey-style window spaces.
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 Worthington Lakes & Arley Woods, plus the stunning area of Rivington. Early viewings are highly recommended on this unique, landmark property. No chain delay. FREEHOLD. The Council Tax band for this property is G.
