Property Location

Nestled off Chorley New Road, with arterial connections to many destinations in both directions, discover No. 8, Briksdal Way, a spacious 1970s home, lovingly extended and brought into the 21st century to provide the very best in modern family living.

Set to a backdrop of rurality, pull off the Briksdal Way and onto the spacious block paved driveway of No. 8. Lush lawn extends to the front, with a double garage for secure sheltered parking.

Take the neatly paved path to reach the contemporary solid wood and curving glass front door.

A warm welcome

Emerging into a broad and bright entrance hall, wooden flooring is attractive underfoot, with contemporary shades of grey to the walls.

Fully tiled and practical, the cloakroom lies to the immediate left, spotlit to the ceiling and furnished with stylish countertop wash basin with vanity unit storage, WC and heated towel radiator.

Ahead and right from the front door, double oak and glass doors deliver light through to the spacious sitting room on the right. Carpeted in grey with shimmering shades to the walls, this light and bright room overlooks the front and side of the home and is well proportioned for furniture and family living. Fitted oak cupboards conveniently conceal the boiler.

Returning to the spacious entrance hall, the scope and scale of this home reveals itself, continuing past the staircase to discover the abundantly sized kitchen-dining room on the right.

Savour mealtimes…

Tiled underfoot, this spacious room is a sociable hub, well-furnished with a range of cabinetry running along three sides of the room. A broad window invites daylight in, framing views out over the garden, whilst cream and grey splashback tiling runs along the remaining stretches of wall.

Currently accommodating a dining table to the centre of the room, there is ample space for a stylish central island-breakfast bar. Flow through from the kitchen to the handy utility room, furnished with the same cabinetry and tiling as the kitchen and featuring an additional sink and plumbing for a washer and dryer. A door opens to the rear garden, making this a handy ‘boot room’ entrance for entry after gardening or muddy country walks with the dog.

There is also potential to open the room up fully to the dining room beyond,. With French doors opening to the private rear garden, the dining room offers an easy flow between indoors and out, perfect for summer barbecues and alfresco dining.

Grand Living

Reconnect with the entrance hall via double doors from the dining room and when passing the foot of the stairs, sneak a peek at the ample understairs storage available for coats and shoes.

Next, arrive at the heart of the home, a huge, open-plan family room, saturated in light from a broad window to the front and French doors to the rear. Light and bright, and with views out over front and rear gardens, this room is a warm and welcoming space in which to relax and unwind. Cosily carpeted underfoot, with feature wallpaper, a glass-fronted gas fireplace is inset within a wall, as the room stretches back, affording so much space. Draw the curtains for total privacy for a quiet night in front of the television.

Great flow ensures all the rooms to the rear have direct access out to the private, enclosed rear garden, ideal for parties and social gatherings.

Room for all

Returning to the entrance hall, ascend the spindled staircase to the first-floor landing, where feature wallpaper in a combination of gold, bronze and anthracite adds a touch of opulence.

To the left, overlooking the leafy green front of the home is bedroom five. A good-sized room, with wood toned flooring underfoot and contemporary white and grey walls, spotlighting shines down from above, with natural light entering through a wide window. This room is also ideal as a private study for those working from home.

Sleepy sanctuary

A soothing space

Further along the landing, across the way enjoy a soothing soak in the family bathroom. Tiled in white to the walls with an iridescent mosaic band, and furnished with a large centrally filling bath, wall mounted wash basin, separate shower with rainfall head and WC. Black tiles underfoot are lifted with a sparkling accent.

Peaceful haven

Next awaits the bountifully sized master bedroom, where sunset shades add a soothing feel. A full bank of fitted wardrobes are accompanied by a fitted dressing table, with peaceful leafy views out over the garden to the rear.

Freshen up in the master ensuite, fully tiled and fitted with a walk-in wet room shower, wall mounted WC incorporated into a range of fitted furniture which provides plenty of storage and also accommodates the wash basin. Above the wash basin is a large, LED touch sensor mirror. Exuding a hotel spa-like ambience, this shower room elevates the master suite to boutique chic.

At the end of the landing, discover the fourth bedroom, carpeted and furnished with fully fitted wardrobes designed to accommodate a single bed. Should you wish, elements of this furniture could be removed to easily accommodate a double bed. Earthy shades reflect the greenery viewed out of the window to the front.
