Property SummaryA delightfully-presented double fronted property with a traditional country-cottage feel, close to both rail and motorway networks offering easy access to Manchester, Liverpool, Blackpool, Preston and Blackburn.
With a large rear garden, some outstanding local schools and with two national parks within an hours drive, this is a property ideally suited to a family but also conveniently located for commuting to a number of locations in the north-west.
Bow Lane is part of a residential development on the east side of Leyland, within a short drive of the M6 and just under 700m from the towns railway station, with regular Northern Rail connections to Manchester, Liverpool, Blackpool and Preston. Regular buses to the town centre and onwards to Preston also run from stops on nearby Bent Lane. Leyland Methodist Junior School, rated as good by Ofsted in its latest report in 2016, and the Balshaws Church of England High School rated as outstanding - are both nearby. There is a Tesco Express just a short distance from the property although Leyland town centre is home to Morrisons, Tesco, Asda and Lidl superstores as well as a selection of banks, shops, bars and restaurants.
The distinctive, brick-built property is separated from the road by a waist-high brick wall with access to the gravelled front garden between two decorative pillars. A flagstone path leads between stone-edged flower beds to the front door located at the centre of the property beneath a small pitched-roof porch extension.
A large, enclosed, L-shaped private garden can be found to the rear, accessed via an external door from the kitchen which opens onto a stone-flagged patio area. A raised lawn is accessed via steps and surrounded by head-high, timber fence panels offering some privacy from neighbouring properties. There is a rockery planted with a number of mature shrubs in one corner of the garden while a flagstone path leads to a timber shed.
The front door opens onto a porch with a separate glass-panel door leading directly into the lounge, which has a solid-wood floor, complemented by an exposed beam in the ceiling above. A feature fireplace with stone lintel and brick surround adds to the cottage-style ambiance, along with a cast-iron wood burner. There are alcoves with fitted shelves either side of the chimney breast, a window overlooks the front of the property while solid-wood doors lead into the snug/office as well as into the kitchen.
The office boasts exposed beams in the ceiling and also has a window overlooking the front of the property. The room is carpeted and equipped with a wall-mounted radiator and low-energy lighting as well as an Ethernet point for home computers. A storage cupboard can be found beneath stairs leading to the first floor. There is also a dining room with solid oak floor.
The modern, fitted kitchen also has a solid-wood floor with wooden wall and base units above and below rolled laminate worktops with grey and amber splashback tiles adding warm colours above all cooking and preparation areas. A composite sink with rinsing bowl, drainer and chrome mixer tap sits beneath a window overlooking the rear garden while an eye-level dual oven is incorporated into the design, adjacent to a four-ring gas hob beneath an extractor. There is also space and plumbing for a washer-drier with access to the rear garden via an external door.
The stairs to the first floor lead to a landing with internal doors opening onto three double bedrooms, which are all carpeted and fitted with wall-mounted radiators with individual controls to regulate warmth. The house bathroom also has a solid-wood floor and is partially-tiled in a dark blue, matched by the seat and cover fitted to the low-level WC. The room includes a pedestal sink and bath the latter surrounded by wood panelling as well as a separate shower cubicle with a sliding glass door.
Double glazed, with some loft insulation and low-energy lighting fitted in all fixed points, the property has a programmable, gas-fired central heating system with thermostat and separate radiator controls, all contributing to a D rating on its EPC.
