THIS traditional four-bedroom detached home was built in the 1930s and set among a half-acre plot at the top end of Horwich.

The property has been a loving family home for a number of years and this is reflected in the internal condition.

The owners have retained many of the original features yet combined them with a modern finish.

The garden offers impressive landscaping with a range of mature shrubs, trees and flower beds with open aspect views of Rivington and the woods to the rear.

The property boasts original hardwood windows, a partly boarded loft and is fully boarded underneath the original Westmorland slates.

There is also a wealth of space throughout and the plot also gives the opportunity for the home to be comfortably extended at the back without compromising any of the garden. Extra en-suites could also be built across two bedrooms over the utility.

The home briefly comprises entrance porch and storage room, bright open hallway with original doors and tiling and another storage room.

There is a formal dining room to the front and a separate spacious lounge which stretches the full length of the house and leads into the bright conservatory.

The spacious kitchen offers a range of wall and base units and leads into utility room with access to a W/C and external door.

Upstairs there are three good-sized double bedrooms and a single bedroom.

The large dual-aspect master bedroom overlooks the front gardens and is complemented by fitted wardrobes and an en-suite.

The other three bedrooms are complemented by spacious tiled family bathroom.

Externally to the front there is a well sized mature garden and ample parking and to the rear there are the generous landscaped gardens with a sweeping flagged patio, two green houses with power and a double detached garage with remote-controlled door.

For those feeling energetic, the lawn takes about 50 minutes to mow!

The location is extremely sought after next to only a handful of homes at the top of the popular Chorley Old Road as you leave Horwich.

The spacious plot receives sun all day long making it ideal for entertaining long into the evening.

It is a short drive from the centre of Horwich, the M61 motorway, Middlebrook Retail Park and Horwich Parkway train station while
