Keepers Cottage is a unique, detached house in a sought-after canal side location practically on its own private island, close to the quaint village of Crooke and Crooke marina, situated between Shevington and Wigan. The village itself provides a friendly community with excellent local walks and the obligatory village pub but is conveniently placed for both the centres of Shevington and the Town centre when a larger range of conveniences are required, with excellent schools close by both at primary and secondary level.

This character property has a spacious interior and is set over three floors, boasting an approximate floor area of 3616 square feet, which has been renovated by the current owners over several years to create a modern, six bedroom house perfect for a family to enjoy and undergone significant recent improvement to include a eco friendly Air Source Heat Pump and solar panels as well as solid wall insulation improvements ensuring a cosy home whilst caring for the environment.

The ground floor of the property starts with a large entrance hall, which then leads into spectacular living room with a feature fireplace and log burner with French doors leading out onto the lush secluded garden. The sizable kitchen is fitted with a range of modern shaker style units, breakfast bar and central island and is finished with granite worktops throughout creating the perfect space for the family to dine casually together. To the rear of the kitchen is an impressive oak beamed dining room perfect for more formal entertaining. An orangery provides additional space to the ground floor and could be utilised as an office space/ family room or play room, the possibilities really are endless. In addition, the ground floor offers a WC and a large utility / boot room.

On the first floor there are three good sized double bedrooms with the master offering an en-suite shower room and separate dressing room. The principle bathroom has been refurbished into a luxury spa like space, with a stand alone bath tub and corner shower, along with a wash basin and WC. To the second floor are two further double bedrooms and another bathroom offering a wash basin, WC and shower.

Outside and to the rear, there is a beautiful large mature garden with established trees and shrubs that faces south west, with the two acres of land being bordered by the river Douglas. A patio provides a seating area allowing the summer evenings to be enjoyed in tranquillity. There is also a summer house to the rear that currently houses a hot tub but could be utilised for a number of uses. The entrance to the property is a gated driveway that allows secure off road parking for several vehicles which is further supplemented by the large detached garage.
