This late Victorian house, part of a majestic terrace, sits proudly on Symonds Road at the south end of Fulwood in an area popular with families. The fine period features are still evident and as appealing today as they were back in the 1890's. A true family home with plenty of space to spread out and the potential to create a home in your own style. The current owners have recently moved on after many happy years here with their family and loved the generous accommodation with its 2 large reception rooms and 4 good size bedrooms. It is a rare opportunity to purchase a property of this size that's not over looked and in an area with a really nice community feel.
Step past the solid front door across the monochrome tiled floor and into the high ceilinged hallway so typical of a home of this era. The impressive front lounge with its rich, red walls and large bay window has a superb fireplace, fitted with a living flame gas fire, complemented by period details of picture rail and corniced ceiling. The equally sized rear dining room has its own feature fireplace also housing a living flame gas fire, with shelving to both alcoves and similar period features to the lounge. At the back of the house there is a simple but practical fitted kitchen with ample cupboard space and worksurfaces which leads to a great utility room housing a Belfast sink, plumbing for a washing machine and hidden away in a cupboard the central heating boiler. There is also a downstairs cloakroom complete with low level wc and wash basin. Upstairs the split level landing has a glass skylight letting in loads of natural light and there are four good size bedrooms, of which two have the original fireplaces. The bathroom has a grey suite and comprises a panelled bath, separate shower cubicle, pedestal wash basin and low level wc. There is also a useful loft room with access via a pull down ladder.
The mature front garden with its abundance of shrubs and trees is bounded by a low brick wall with wrought iron railings and shields the house perfectly from the road. The original stone pillars with a wrought iron gate give access via a granite set path to the imposing entrance. At the back of the property there is an enclosed south facing courtyard perfect for alfresco dining with a storage shed and gate leading to the rear service road.
There's a real community feel to the area with a number of independent shops in walking distance, bus routes nearby and the lovely wide open spaces of Moor Park a short stroll away. For families there are a number of popular primary and high schools in easy reach including independent schools such as St. Pius X preparatory school on Garstang Road. Situated mid way between the City Centre and the motorway this part of Fulwood is ideal for anyone looking for a peaceful but convenient place to bring up their family.
The property is Freehold with a council tax band of C (£1554.84 per annum for 2017/18). There is gas central heating and double glazed windows. The house is being sold with no upper chain and vacant possession.
Without doubt the overall size and number of rooms appeals to us but we also love the way the house hides itself behind the mature front garden just waiting to be discovered.
