Full description

Offered for sale with NO CHAIN DELAY is this charming garden-fronted mid-terrace that offers the ideal opportunity for those wishing to put their own stamp on a family home. Dating back to the Edwardian era, this property has plenty of character and is situated among the fields of green belt land with delightful views from several windows. Although the house would benefit from some redecoration and modernisation, it offers a substantial amount of living space in an idyllic location in the sought-after village of Bretherton. The house falls within the catchment area for two Ofsted-outstanding schools, and is within walking distance of Bretherton Endowed C of E Primary School. Access to the property is via a private lane off the main road through the village, and this provides a secluded and yet not isolated country lane location. Ideal for commuters is access to the rail network at Croston, which is also within easy reach. The living accommodation briefly comprises: porch, lounge with an open fire with attractive tiled surround, dining room, kitchen, rear porch, ground floor W.C, and ground floor bedroom or further reception room to the rear. To the first floor are two good-sized bedrooms and a modern fitted five-piece bathroom suite. A useful loft room is accessed from the first floor landing. Outside to the rear, slightly offset, is a detached summer house ideal for use as extra occasional accommodation, home office or gym that opens out onto a garden area with picturesque views over fields beyond the boundary hedge. The property is warmed by a gas-fired central heating system and benefits from attractive double-glazed sash windows.
