Property description

*Part Exchange Considered* Full presenter led tour available, see video tab. Believe it or not, the incredible plot where we now find this stunning detached home can be traced all the way back 70AD. Back then, our Roman ancestors used this spot as a fort! A great bit of history, but of course ‘The Romans’ are better remembered today for successfully establishing the early road networks – helping connect the country. Whilst the insight into this plot is rather incredible, what’s equally as incredible is the wonderful home we find here today. Whilst everybody has a different idea of what ‘the perfect property’ looks like, we are confident that if you are looking for a family-friendly property that offers something for the whole family to love, then all roads lead to 23 Dowbridge…

Located just a matter of minutes from Kirkham town centre and a short commute away from the motorway network, it’s no exaggeration to say that the positioning of this home puts all of the daily essential and desirable amenities in easy reach. Kirkham Grammar school is also close by as are an array of local transport services, making the whole of The Fylde Coast & Preston easily accessible. Something the earlier habitants of this plot would be proud to see!

In more recent years, this property has been ‘home’ to the same family for some forty years. Four decades since this property ‘changed hands’ which we really do think is testimony to just what a brilliant home this is. Sat back on a beautiful tree lined road, the property sits within an impressive plot behind a gated entrance. The driveway to the front of the home leads all the way up to the impressive garage, offering secure off road parking beside the stunning landscaped gardens.

Internally, the great first impression continues. A well lit, spacious and neutrally decorated entrance hallway provides a warm welcome to the home, and guides you in to the family kitchen to the rear of the home – which has been done beautifully by the existing homeowners. More than just a kitchen, this space is a fully functional family room that makes intelligent use of the available square footage. The integral NEF appliances are built in to the back wall, and the contemporary units offer all the storage you would hope or could wish for. An island which sits central in the space provides a real focal point in the room, but also serves a functional purpose offering yet more built-in storage (as well as a sleek wine cooler!). To the back wall, the existing vendors have created an informal dining arrangement – great for connecting the family during mealtimes. An integral access point connects the kitchen to the garage at the front elevation of the home. Karndean flooring spans the entirety of the ground floor (except for the lounge). Not only does it create a great aesthetic, it’s also hardwearing – so ideal if you have pets or children who like to stomp their feet. The karndean flooring extends beyond the kitchen, creating a great flow in to the conservatory extension at the rear. The heavy use of glass really connects this reception room with the leafy outdoor surroundings, but the underfloor heating makes for a ‘cosy’ ambience. The existing vendors use the conservatory as a snug come playroom. Partition doors separate the conservatory from the family lounge, which faces the front aspect of the home. A large window floods the space with light, and allows for a peek in to the leafy boarder at the front of the plot. A gas fire place is nestled away within a limestone fire place – the perfect spot to relax together of an evening.

All four of the bedrooms offered at Dowbridge can be found on the first floor. The landing has a fresh & contemporary feel to it thanks to the vendors choice of décor and it leads the way to each of the four bedrooms. Just like the rest of this home, the bedrooms are all finished to a great cosmetic standard and the master suite is no exception. This double room benefits from built in storage and a sleek ensuite that wouldn’t look out of place in a boutique hotel! The en-suite, family bathroom & the smallest of our four bedrooms all face the rear aspect of the home and thanks to the property’s raised elevation really capitalise on the stunning landscape that surrounds Kirkham. Rolling green hills for as far as the eye can see – the perfect outlook for a morning shower. The final two bedrooms can be found at the other side of the landing. Both rooms (as we’ve come to expect from Dowbridge) are finished to a good cosmetic standard and boast built-in storage. One room has an outlook facing the side elevation of the home and the final bedroom faces the front.

No family friendly property is of course complete without a garden that lends itself to family life. The gardens here at Dowbridge do exactly that. A lawned area is large enough in size for the children to play, or to create a truly stunning floral arrangement for those feeling more green fingered. The space is not overlooked, which is just as well as the paved area to the rear offers a great spot to entertain friends or dine al-fresco when the weather allows. Dowbridge really is a great example of a family home, and it’s with a heavy heart that the existing (long standing) occupants offer this property to market for a new family to start their next chapter here. Showings are now available by appointment only and can be arranged by contacting our offices on the number provided quoting reference ‘BM0005’ when you do so.
