Three/four bedroom detached stone property in hamlet style location and finished to a superb specification throughout. Rural location yet served by mains services. Private driveway and impressive landscaped gardens.

The Cottage:
Ivy Cottage within Limbrick Village is a stunning example of a detached stone dwelling. Our clients have carried out significant renovation works during the last four years, the results being a home that has been finished with great thought and using quality materials. The specification shines through and is highlighted by aspects such as the oak floor to the lounge and stone flagged flooring to the dining room. There is an excellent versatility to both the bedroom and living accommodation with there being a possibility of three or five bedrooms depending on your preference. In its present layout the master suite affords an impressive en suite shower room plus large dressing room. The ground floor layout itself has four reception areas with the addition of creature comforts such as separate utility, ground floor cloakroom and pantry. Galleried landings look into parts of this ground floor accommodation. A very important aspect of this property is the rural location, but this has not stopped the property from being connected to mains services which is a feature seldom associated with rural properties. Externally there is a pleasant gravel drive with gardens to each side where significant work has been carried out to landscape the formally tiered gardens to create a now altogether more level and useable zone. The property is not overlooked to the rear and we anticipate good rates of interest.

The Area:
Limbrick Village is roughly between Horwich and Chorley and close to Rivington and Heath Charnock. The hamlet style location therefore benefits from excellent access to the surrounding countryside which we feel fair to describe as 'on the doorstep' and would no doubt suit those who enjoy spending time outdoors. There is a country pub serving the hamlet with a number of other pubs and restaurants within the general area; whilst a good variety of retail outlets can be found in both Horwich and Chorley town centres. Despite the rural setting it is worthy of note that Adlington train station is around 2.5 miles away and Junction 7 of the M61 is between 2-3 miles away. Chorley includes a number of primary and secondary schools with primary schools also available within Adlington centre itself.
