Tenure: Leasehold

WHERE IT IS? From M65 Junction 4, turn left on to Earcroft Way, left on to the A666 Blackburn Road, proceed for approximately half a mile and turn right into Lynwood Avenue. The property is on the right hand side of the avenue. 

WHY VIEW THIS PROPERTY? This is a substantial property, especially the ground floor. It enjoys a lovely aspect & privacy to the rear as the back street is lined with garden plots rented from the local authority. It is accessible in many ways - at the bottom of the avenue on the main road, there are some shops, a pub, a swimming pool & a bus route. You are within easy reach of the M65 & from there only a junction away from Blackburn hospital. There is a wide choice of primary & secondary schools & countryside encompasses the district. Darwen Cricket Club is very close by & Ewood Park, home to Blackburn Rovers FC is not far away either. You can access either Blackburn or Darwen Town Centres alike with a larger range of shops/supermarkets in a few minutes drive, so you are not very far away from anything you may need. There is an entrance vestibule opening to a traditional hallway with an ornate period decorative archway, deep ceiling cornices and decorative mouldings to the ceiling which are stunning. The front lounge is presently used as a formal dining area, though you may have a cosy lounge here instead. The rear living room is very roomy & could be used for both living/dining & this leads into the fitted kitchen which includes integrated appliainces - very handy for the kettle! The first floor has two bedrooms & the stylishly decorated master is huge. There is plenty of space up here; the bathroom is very spacious indeed with a large window, so potentially it could be reconfigured to form three bedrooms by repositioning the bathroom & making it smaller. Outside, the store in the yard houses the washing machine freeing up cupboard space in the kitchen & has power & plumbing. Beyond the back street, the vendors of this property presently rent the garden plot positioned behind the property, from the local authority for £60 per year & it is level, enclosed & has been recently landscaped. We have been informed that the new occupants of this property would have to apply to the local authority for the use of this if desired as it won't automatically be passed on - so the benefit of its continuing use must not be assumed & individual enquiries must be made to Blackburn & Darwen Council. 

WHAT THE VENDORS SAY? "We have lived in our beautiful home for 10 years now, the surrounding area is very quiet. There are primary schools and shops within walking distance as well as access to Sunnyhurst woods. We often take walks to the local riding school and through the woods. There is a lovely café and swings for children . An ideal place for dogs also. The motorway junction is a two minute drive away, making it handy for travelling. The area is a great place to live and has suited us as both young professionals and family life. Sadly we have outgrown our home so are looking to upgrade."
