Traditional character meets contemporary style in this much loved family home. This semi detached house sits in an often undiscovered residential area on the east side of Preston with quick access to the motorway network and the City centre itself. The ground floor living space has been reconfigured to give the home a practical modern feel and to make full use of the fantastic south east facing garden. Proudly retaining the original stained glass front windows set in stone surrounds, so typical of a property of this age, the house offers great value for any buyers looking for their first or next family home.
The brightly painted front door gives way to an elegant hallway with a practical and contemporary laminate wood floor. The spacious lounge with its large round bay window has a feature fireplace as the focal point to the room with the continuation of the hallway flooring. Bi-fold doors open into the modern dining kitchen with its contrasting white cupboards, dark worksurfaces and striking black tiled splashback. The dining area has space for a family sized table and double glazed doors open out to the lovely garden.
Upstairs the house delivers the right amount of space with the master bedroom to the front benefiting from a round bay window, alongside a single bedroom with the other double bedroom at the rear offering a wonderful view of the garden. The contemporary styled bathroom is fully tiled and features a shower bath with overhead electric shower, a wash basin set in a vanity unit with a low level wc.
The pretty front garden with its lawn edged with flower borders gives a clue to the real star of the show at the rear of the house. The large south east facing garden is an absolute dream for families with plenty of lawn for children to safely burn off their excess energy. A choice of a good size paved patio adjacent to the house and a large decked area at the end of the garden means you can make the most of the sunshine throughout the day as you relax and entertain. On a more practical note there is a detached single garage, which is approached via a driveway where there is space to park a car off road.
The Farringdon Park area of Preston sits atop the summit of Brockholes Brow at the bottom of which lies the award winning Brockholes Nature Reserve. There is also access here to the extensive motorway network with links to Manchester, The Lakes and beyond. In walking distance to the house you will find local shops and convenience stores with buses to the City Centre. There are various schools in the area and beautiful walks through woods and along the river via the Guild Wheel cycle path. There's even a golf club at the end of the road.
We have to start with the garden which is an absolute joy perfect for children and easy to maintain for the parents. We also like the location which is often overlooked by buyers but has so much to offer for families keen to take advantage of the local countryside.
The property is Freehold. The council tax band is B (£1360.48 per annum for 2017/18). We are currently awaiting the EPC.
