Description

This unique home dates back to the early 1800s. It backs onto the Leeds and Liverpool Canal and enjoys a fantastic wide frontage to the canal with a delightful canalside garden and a lovely outlook with the treelined towpath and sports fields opposite. The house is beautifully presented and has the cosy style of a cottage yet a contemporary feel and plenty of space in every room. The house is within easy walking distance of Maghull station, bus routes, and local shops and facilities.

The house is quite imposing from the front with a shallow walled front garden, a gated driveway to side leading to a garage, and a side gate leading to the garden. The front door, set under a porch, opens into a welcoming dining room with a cast iron fireplace and a window to the front. To the rear of this room is a wide inner hallway, leading to a combined utility and cloakroom, and a door out to the rear courtyard.

To the right of the house is a spacious living space divided into a kitchen area with a breakfast island and a window to the rear, and a sociable snug with a window to the front. To the left of the house is a spacious through sitting room which enjoys a gas fireplace for cosy nights in, a window overlooking the side garden, and French doors opening out to the rear courtyard.

Stairs rise from the inner hall at the rear of the dining room to the first floor landing, where French doors open out to a magnificent decked balcony overlooking the garden and canal. The master bedroom is a good size with French doors leading out onto the balcony, and an en-suite shower room with a window to the rear. There are three further bedrooms, one to the rear and two to the front, and a contemporary traditional style bathroom to the front. A walkway from the balcony leads directly out to the canalside garden.

The garden is a delight with a paved sunken courtyard immediately behind the house and steps leading up to a delightful lawned garden overlooking the canal. Further steps lead down from the rear garden to a second lawned garden to the side. The garden is charmigly landscaped with attractive borders, mature shrubs and a lovely willow tree. There are lovely spots on the balcony or in the garden to sit and relax, admire the view and entertain friends and family.
