12, The Drive, Walton Le Dale, Preston, PR5 4BL

Imagine waking up to open fields and beautiful sunrises with seemingly the whole world laid out before you. Well at 12 The Drive that's what awaits you with one of the loveliest views in the area. Perched on the side of a hill this row of Victorian red brick terraces seems a world away from the hustle and bustle of the city just across the river. Generous living space and a detached garage as well as a rear courtyard plus enclosed private garden are the order of the day. With no upper chain this delightfully located home could be yours to enjoy.


High ceilings abound in this late 19th Century home. The generous rooms start with a bright lounge flooded with an abundance of natural light from the south east facing picture window. Through a cosy sitting room with plenty of space for a family dining table and onto the fitted kitchen complete with ample work surfaces, a range of floor units as well as a 1 1/2 bowl sink unit and integrated oven and hob. The terracotta floor tiles continue round the corner to the back door and a good sized utility area housing the central heating boiler. Upstairs two of the three bedrooms delight in the stunning panorama of fields and hedgerows creating a wonderful vista whatever the weather. Just imagine throwing back the curtains of a morning to be greeted by a glorious sunrise or maybe turn the smaller bedroom into a study and let the views inspire you.

A stunningly contemporary wet-room with underfloor heating complete with walk in shower stall, rectangular wash basin, and low level WC all illuminated by twinkling down lights set into the ceiling.


To the front and accessed via wrought iron railing there is a lawned garden enclosed by tall hedges and perfectly placed to take advantage of those sunny summer days with a barbeque. Behind the house, a paved courtyard leads to the detached brick garage with its electric up and over door, which is approached via a service road accessible to all the houses.

A number of local primary schools are in easy reach with the popular St Patricks only a short distance away at the bottom of Knot Lane. Nearby the Capital Centre Retail Park offers more restaurants, a Vue cinema, Health Club and loads of great shops including a Waitrose store. With the countryside literally on your door step the opportunity to get out and about couldn't be easier.

Lime Likes

What's our favourite thing about 12 The Drive? Two words: 'The View'. We think this might be one of the nicest outlooks for a terraced house anywhere in Preston. On top of that the ground floor space,in particular, is wonderful and the wet room could be straight out of a hotel.
