Property Description

Full description

Commanding an enviable position at the head of the cul-de-sac, formerly an exclusive gated community and now one of several designated conservation areas in the town. Positioned in an attractive row beside the former vicarage, and constructed circa 1882, during an era of rapid expansion of the industrial town where prominent citizens lived in villas and short terraces closer to the towns boundaries. Ideally placed therefore within approximately half-a-mile of Burnley town centre amenities with access to the M65 motorway a short distance away, promoting complete freedom throughout the Northwest region.  

One of three period properties, this Victorian semi-detached home affords a wealth of enchanting character, lovingly restored to the credit of the existing vendors. The property has undergone a programme of renovation with stunning original stripped pine floors extending from the reception hallway with its sweeping balustrade and into light, airy reception rooms. Clean, neutral décor highlights the existing character with open fireplaces, plaster cornicing and ceiling roses, all of which benefits from modern gas central heating having been installed. There are three good-sized bedrooms to the first floor, with a magnificent main bedroom, formerly two rooms and spanning the width of the building. A sympathetically re-instated house bathroom further adds to the appeal. The property is enveloped within private lawned gardens to the front, side and rear.
