With an integral garage and driveway it offers free and trouble free parking, which is a great asset to a property so close to the town centre.

The magnificent Victorian Gothic St Michaels and All Angels Parish Church is directly opposite giving a beautiful and peaceful backdrop from the lounge and one of the bedrooms.

(Kirkby connects to Liverpool Central). Also Wigan Infirmary, Haigh Hall Woodland Park and the magnificent Mesnes Park and the Plantations are all within a short driving distance.
