Property Description

Full description

BRIEF DESCRIPTION This much loved property has been in our client's family for a number of years and, although elements would be considered aged, it has been extended to both the front and rear elevations creating an entrance porch and cloakroom/WC (a most useful addition) and to the rear is a conservatory which welcomes in the garden to the home. In total, there are three reception areas including this conservatory and a kitchen fitted with a range of wood fronted units. On the first floor, there are three bedrooms, two doubles which both benefit from built-in wardrobes, and a larger than average single third bedroom. There is a shower room and a separate WC across the landing. The property does benefit from UPVC double glazing being installed and there is gas central heating, with the boiler being located in an outside boiler cupboard. Externally, off-road parking is provided via a private double-gated paved driveway with an accompanying front garden with low wall with iron railing. There are shrub borders and the driveway leads past the home to double-gated access to the rear. The rear garden is of a notable size and features a paved seating terrace with a hardstanding with timber shed and a golden gravelled section of garden behind and a block paving edged lawned garden with trellis garden seat. 

LOCATION Appleyards Lane is a tree-lined road situated within the much coveted and popular district of Handbridge, being within walking distance of the city centre, with quality day-to-day amenities on hand in both Handbridge itself and the city centre.
