If you are looking for a family home then this is an ideal choice with lots of potential for expansion too. Downstairs there are two good sized reception rooms and the kitchen has been extended and has a recently installed Howden's kitchen with a Zanussi five burner hob, a New World Oven and a Luxair Extractor. In the rear reception room there is a Charnwood Wood Burning Stove which can heat up the whole house on those cooler Spring and Autumn days saving a little on the gas central heating bills! These houses have a generous sized loft and many down this street have been extended upwards to provide room in the roof space.
Close to both Roseacre Primary School and Thames Primary Academy, both rated 'Good' schools as well as several other Primary schools only a little further afield. The two nearest high schools are Palatine Community Sports College and Highfield Humanities College, both just over a mile away.
The transport links in this area are excellent with both bus and tram routes just around the corner, The Pleasure Beach railway station takes you to Preston and onwards throughout the network, and you are only a 5-10 minute drive from the M55 and onwards to the whole of the motorway network.
There are some local shops nearby on Harrowside and a little further on you will reach the main shopping area of Highfield Road with all its independent shops, Post Office, takeaways, restaurants, pubs and clubs. You are also within walking distance of the Morrisons supermarket on Squires Gate Lane and Blackpool Retail Park with its out of town shopping and larger chain stores. The doctors are all within a short distance as are dentists and the pharmacy.
For leisure you are a bus or tram ride from the centre of Blackpool with the theatres, clubs and nightlife, as well as the bigger chain stores for shopping by day. St Annes on Sea is roughly the same distance in the other direction with an equally good restaurant scene, independent shops, takeaways and pubs. There is also a cinema complex in St Annes as well as one nearby in Blackpool, so you'll never be short of a film to watch. Both St Annes and Blackpool have lots of attractions to entertain both young and old alike.
This is a very quiet street as it is the furthest point on this estate so the only cars that will pass the house are those going to the other houses along the row. It is an excellent street to raise children as the worry of traffic racing past is minimised. The train track passes in front of the house but it is an hourly service either way and passes by very slowly so doesn't cause any disturbance. This estate is aesthetically very pleasant with wide streets, front gardens adding to the sense of space, and houses in the main with the very pale green Westmorland slate roofs. The newly built seawall and promenade are just a stone's throw away, accessible by a couple of pedestrian crossings on the promenade, one near the Glitterball and the other in front of the hotels, which makes life a lot easier if you are going for a cycle ride or walk with the family.
This home includes:
- Family Room
4.34m x 4.01m (17.4 sqm) - 14' 3" x 13' 1" (187 sqft)
This is a good sized room with a front facing aspect viewed through the bay window which allows plenty of natural light and sunshine through.
- Living Room
4.01m x 3.03m (12.1 sqm) - 13' 1" x 9' 11" (130 sqft)
This room overlooks the rear garden and is slightly smaller than the family room, but still a good workable size. The focal point of this room is the Charnwood Wood Burning Stove, a notable brand, which gives plenty of warmth to the room and beyond.
- Kitchen Diner
4.9m x 2.81m (13.7 sqm) - 16' x 9' 2" (148 sqft)
The kitchen has in recent years been fitted with a Howden's kitchen in a cream colour, giving a sense of space and brightness. There are plenty of units providing lots of storage space. It is a 'foodies' kitchen, being blessed with a five ring hob with a central wok burner and a larger than average sink with shower style mixer tap overlooking the rear garden - washing up with a view. The boiler is also located here in the kitchen and was recently replaced with a Vaillant boiler in 2012.
- Bedroom 1
4.36m x 4.01m (17.4 sqm) - 14' 3" x 13' 1" (188 sqft)
The Master bedroom has an aspect towards the front of the house. This is a very peaceful street so no worries about traffic keeping anyone awake at night. This room has plenty of wardrobe space inside the fitted wardrobes the full length of one wall.
- Bedroom 2
3.99m x 2.64m (10.5 sqm) - 13' 1" x 8' 7" (113 sqft)
This bedroom overlooks the rear garden - wake up to hear the birds tweeting in the cherry tree outside. Again, this is a good sized double bedroom with fitted units for storage and clothing.
- Bedroom 3
2.42m x 1.82m (4.4 sqm) - 7' 11" x 5' 11" (47 sqft)
The third bedroom is facing the front of the property. This is the smallest bedroom although it still allows for a single bed and wardrobe, but would be more ideally suited as a study or hobby room.
2.08m x 2.75m (5.7 sqm) - 6' 9" x 9' (61 sqft)
A good sized bathroom with bath, toilet, sink set in a vanity unit and a generous sized corner shower unit. This room has been totally updated in recent years.
There is a good sized garage with room for storage in there too. A new back door to the garage has been fitted recently.
Please note, all dimensions are approximate / maximums and should not be relied upon for the purposes of floor coverings.
