IN a wonderful position overlooking St Helens Green is a superbly flexible home, with a name that could be apt if you were asked to estimate the space on offer.

Although it is substantial looking, detached Guess Again, in Station Road, opposite the western end of the green, is more capacious than you might imagine.

It comes with a big sitting room, delightful dining room, good-sized kitchen/breakfast room, airy conservatory and superb master suite.

At the top of the house is a huge attic room, with fine views to Culver Down through two Velux windows opening to create small balconies.

Another pleasant surprise is a self-contained annexe, with a bedroom, living and dining area, all overlooking the green, and a kitchen and bathroom. Ideal for a relative or generating an income, it has its own outside entrance stairs but can also be reached via a door on the first-floor landing.

The comfortable, well-proportioned house provides convenient heart-of-the-village living, with bus stops, shops, a pub and doctor’s surgery to hand.

Large windows look out to the downs and provide front views over the green, where cricket is played in summer.

Mature shrubs and a wall screen the extensive front paved parking area, with space for several cars and access to a double garage with an up-and-over electric door, power and light.

Easily-maintained gravelled beds and a paved path feature in the side garden leading to the back garden, a mainly lawned area enjoying privacy. Accessed from the sitting room and conservatory is a split-level paved patio, which gets the sun most of the day.

Tiled flooring continues from the entrance hall, with stairs to the first floor into a cloakroom with WC.

Neutral floor tiles run throughout the 24ft-long sitting room, with a front window, rear sliding patio doors and an imposing wooden surround to a fireplace with a gas coal fire. A front bow window frames views of the green from the good-sized dining room.

Double doors lead to the airy, double-glazed conservatory from the kitchen/breakfast room, with wood-effect flooring complementing wooden Shaker-style units. There is a built-in gas hob, double electric oven, space and plumbing for a dishwasher and an integrated fridge freezer.

A good-sized utility room, with a side door, houses more units and has plumbing for a washing machine.

Off the first-floor landing, with space for a desk below a window overlooking the green, are three bedrooms and a spacious bathroom, with fully tiled walls and a suite including a bath as well as a separate shower unit.

From the rear-facing master bedroom is an archway to a dressing area, with built-in wardrobes and doors to an en-suite shower room.

Also rear-facing is bedroom two with built-in wardrobes, while bedroom three looks over the green. The 28ft-long attic room has wooden-panelled walls and ceiling, with a front and rear outlook.
