Converted shippen offering three / four bedrooms and flexible living accommodation. The stone built home exudes character and is positioned in a high calibre area.

The House:
A stone built and semi-detached converted shippen which was initially subject to its conversion from a working farm building to a residential dwelling during 2003. Benefitting from further extension to the living accommodation during 2008, the Freehold property offers plentiful character. Striking features such as beamed and vaulted ceilings, deep window reveals with stone sills, log burner and galleried landing with vaulted ceiling, will no doubt appeal to a discerning buyer. The home has flexible living accommodation including an impressive open-plan living area and kitchen. There is a further versatile ground floor room currently used as a study but could become a fourth bedroom. To the first floor there are three bedrooms and the main family bathroom. A master suite is fitted with bedroom furniture and includes an en suite shower room. We suspect that the property would suit a wide variety of buyers and it is worth noting that the home has accommodated a mature family but would no doubt appeal to those downsizing from a larger property and equally those buyers looking for their rural retreat.

The Area:
A private and gated hamlet of character properties on the site of a former working farm. A simple look at the satellite image of this group of homes will clearly display the pleasant rural setting with an abundance of surrounding fields. Adlington centre itself is approx 1.5 miles away and benefits from a train station with the A6 further providing access towards Chorley town centre approx 4.5 miles away. There are a number of shops and services within the village with more commercial opportunities spread between Chorley and Horwich centres and the Middlebrook complex close to the Macron football stadium. Many locals would consider Manchester and the Trafford Centre as an appropriate distance to shop, work and socialise. Buyers are attracted to this part of the world due to convenient transport links whilst the surrounding countryside is also popular with access towards both Rivington and Haigh country parks. Ideal therefore for spending time outdoors, dog walking, running and cycling etc. The owners have certainly enjoyed 'incredible views and sunsets and gentle walks in the near vicinity'.
