Description
This mature family semi detached house enjoys a corner position in a private cul-de-sac of only six houses. Larger than average, it offers two separate reception rooms and five bedrooms. There are two bathrooms, one of which is on the ground floor. The corner plot is generous with driveway parking, a detached double garage and a private verdant and well stocked rear garden. Built in 1937, the property has plenty of traditional period character including lovely leaded glazed bay windows and art-deco fireplaces in both reception rooms. There is a good-sized unit fitted kitchen and a large utility room/store. Gas central heating is provided by a combination boiler.

Location
The property is located in the cul-de-sac approximately half way down Crosshill Road. This is a popular and sought after family area due to the proximity of highly regarded local schools including Wensley Fold Primary and Tauheedul Girls. Local shops, Churches and Mosques are all within short walking distance and Blackburn town centre itself is within approximately 0.7 miles. Crosshill Road is equidistant from Corporation Park and Witton Country Park, which both offer open 'green' space. Crosshill Tennis Club and East Lancs Cricket Club are also popular with local families.
