On behalf of Executors we are marketing this good-sized centre terraced house, with immediate vacant possession. It is in need of some general upgrading, yet offers two generous reception rooms, a spacious kitchen extension and has already been converted to 3 bedrooms on the first floor [plus a bathroom wc with shower]. Additionally the attic hobbly/play room is fully floored and has a velux roofline window. With the addition of a permanent forward facing staircase this could readily make a 4th bedroom. This property may suit a young family purchasing on a budget or a buy-to-let investor/renovator looking for a 3-4 bedroom house with income earning potential.

The property is located in the middle of Lightbown Street, which is a cul-de-sac with traditional terraced houses on one side and more modern linked/semi style houses on the other. It is in a fairly central positioned within Darwen, approximately 0.75 miles from the town centre.
