A double-fronted period home in the heart of Higher Bartle. When I think about what a traditional house should look like this home is exactly what I see in my mind's eye.

It certainly stands out on the road and once inside, it opens up into a beautiful home, with flexible living accommodation and plenty of original features making it elegant yet homely.
Set back from the road with parking at the rear in front of the double garage with a perimeter enclosing both the front and rear garden. This just further adds to the character feel and charm.

The beautiful front door opens out into a traditional-style hallway, and you immediately get the feel for the type of home this is with its high ceilings and stylish interior. To the right is a versatile dual-aspect main reception room. The stone recessed fireplace houses a log burner for cosy evenings by the fire with the family.

On the other side of the hall, we find the formal dining room with character features, an inset stone fireplace and a range of bespoke cabinetry for all your Sunday best.

The kitchen features modern design which blends seamlessly with the traditional style cabinets. With a range of appliances, a wide choice of storage solutions and granite work surfaces including a peninsula island it’s the perfect space for cooking up a storm or catching up with friends or the children with a pot of tea.

Most family buyers ‘must haves’ include a downstairs WC, and this can be found as well as a traditional rear hallway as well which leads to the garden.

On the first floor, there are 4 bedrooms, 3 of which are doubles. and 2 of which have fitted wardrobes. The main room has an en-suite as well as a full range of fitted bedroom furniture. Currently, one of the bedrooms on this floor is utilised as a study which is ideal for those still working from home. The family bathroom has a four-piece heritage suite with a free-standing roll-top bath with claw feet.

On the second floor, we find a further bedroom with an en suite and fitted wardrobes. Just outside this room, there is an additional study space which could also act as a lounge for this bedroom. The only problem with this home is that this top-floor bedroom is likely to be the bedroom everyone wants to secure as their own.

At the rear of the property is a low-maintenance garden which is blocked paved and is an ideal entertaining area. Equally, if you have a busy life or gardening isn’t your thing it would also suit.

As the front garden is enclosed, I could see children playing here in the summer. The garden is mainly laid to lawn with a range of mature shrubs and trees further enhancing the character.

Higher Bartle has excellent transport links to the City Centre and the motorway network making this ideal for professionals commuting around the NW and beyond. There are outstanding schools, plenty of parks and leisure facilities, and an increasing number of social and shopping amenities within a short distance.
