Barncroft Drive is a cul-de-sac of just a handful of houses off New Chapel Lane near the Jolly Crofters Public House in Horwich and offers well-proportioned family accommodation. The wide plot allows for a rear and side garden and some features which we feel are particularly worthy of note are the well-proportioned lounge, extended dining-kitchen with separate utility and there is an excellent sense of privacy as the home is not directly overlooked from the front or rear. The rear-facing bedrooms enjoy views towards the hills and the home has been well cared for though perhaps needs some general modernising to the family bathroom. In summary this lovely home is positioned in an excellent area, offers nicely proportioned rooms and would no doubt suit the growing family wanting to establish a long term home in a non-estate position.
The location provides a superb balance of access into the countryside as George's Lane which is one of the main roads into the surrounding moors is practically across the road. The Beehive roundabout is roughly 5 minutes drive away and provides further access to the nearby train and motorway links. The town includes a number of nurseries and both primary and secondary education through to A-Level stages. The closest commercial centre is Horwich town centre itself and the Middlebrook complex also includes a wealth of shops and services. All-in-all we feel this offers a rather family-friendly package.
Exit Horwich via Chorley Old Road. Turn right at Ye Jolly Crofters and then second left into Barncroft Drive.
