Nestled at the junction of Simister Lane and Droughts Lane within the esteemed village of Simister, this substantial detached family home, constructed in the mid-1980s by its original owner, epitomises a blend of tradition and untapped potential. Located merely a stone's throw from the Prestwich village and a brisk 15-minute drive from the dynamic Manchester City Centre, this property presents a unique opportunity for those wishing to infuse their personal flair into a classic space. While the property does require modernisation, it sits on an exceptionally large plot, offering immense potential for extension and redevelopment. It's a project that invites vision and creativity, perfect for those looking to create their dream home.

The ground floor exudes possibility, with an inviting entry vestibule leading into a hallway. It houses essential amenities like a guest toilet and then unfolds into a vast living room and a dining room with patio doors opening onto the rear. A snug study area offers a retreat for quieter moments. The heart of the home, the kitchen, is well-appointed and adjoins a utility room, offering the perfect canvas for culinary creativity.

The home's potential continues as one ascends to the first floor, where the layout is designed with family living in mind. The principal bedroom is a spacious sanctuary, complete with a dressing area and a recently upgraded ensuite, embodying a private haven within the home. Four additional bedrooms provide ample space for family, guests, or versatile uses such as a home office or creative studio. A primary bathroom equipped with a three-piece suite serves these rooms, echoing the home's overall theme of potential and possibility.

Externally, the property occupies a prominent corner plot, with mature gardens enveloping it in tranquillity and privacy. These landscaped gardens at the front lead to a side lawn, bordered by mature trees, while an enclosed lawn behind the garage opens up to a flagstone patio area at the rear, offering a serene outdoor retreat. The inclusion of a double garage provides practicality in terms of storage or parking space. With no onward chain and under freehold ownership, this property stands as a beacon of opportunity, ready for a new owner to usher it into a new era of modern living.
