Come Off The Motorway at 5.30 pm, Pull Onto Your Drive At 5.35. You wouldn’t think this luxurious modern family home was so close to major transport links. Set back from the road and with panoramic views of open fields, you could be in the countryside.

Southworth House is just over a mile from the motorway but it feels more like a luxury rural retreat. It has a blink-and-you’ll-miss-it sweeping drive off Longridge Road and is the perfect place to relax and unwind or bring up your family.

It’s one of two modern detached family homes occupying substantial private plots, with breathtaking views of open fields from the garden and first-floor bedrooms.

If you’re looking for all the benefits of a modern, energy-efficient home without living on a tightly packed estate, this could be ideal.

There is another exclusive detached property next door but the size of their plots and their well-thought-out orientation means they both feel private and secluded.

Internally it’s in superb condition but the 270m² (2,900ft²) garden must be one of the best features. There’s only a low stone wall separating the garden from the open fields which stretch into the distance as far as the eye can see. It's not uncommon for the sellers to wake up to deer or a range of wild birds in the fields making this home perfect for nature lovers.

It will be the perfect place for the kids to play and fantastic for summer entertaining.

Heading back inside, the ground floor layout is spacious and versatile. There’s a choice of rooms to get everyone together and space to escape if you need to relax or do some work.

The impressive hall welcomes you into the home, with stunning hi-gloss floor tiles leading your eye to the kitchen/diner at the rear.

Chances are everyone will head straight for the kitchen.

It’s modern and stylish, with grey fitted units and an island unit, both with gorgeous granite worktops. Light floods in through the Velux windows and the French doors which lead to a paved patio area.

If the kitchen is the social hub of the home, there’s a choice of two reception rooms where you can escape to relax and an office if you need some peace and quiet to do some work.

It’s practical too, with a handy utility room which gives access to the built-in single garage.

Upstairs has three double bedrooms and a stylish four-piece family bathroom.

The master bedroom is particularly large and impressive. It has fabulous views you can enjoy from your frameless Juliet balcony and a luxurious ensuite shower room. It is important to note that the main bedroom was designed so that it could easily be split into two to make a four-bedroom house.

There’s parking on the drive for several cars, next to the neat front lawn.

If you have young children, Grimsargh St Michael's Church of England Primary School (which is rated “Outstanding” by Ofsted) is only a 2 minute drive away, or a pleasant 12 minute walk.

Being on the northern edge of the city means you’ll find it easy to get out and explore the countryside, with open fields only seconds from your front door.

You won’t have to struggle through the traffic if you need to head further afield on the M6, as it will only take a few minutes to join at Junction 31a. And if you need to head into town to hit the shops or catch up with friends, it only takes around 15 minutes to drive to the city centre.

It’s the same distance to the station, where fast and frequent West Coast Mainline trains will take you to London and Glasgow, along with more local northwest services to Liverpool and Manchester.

This spacious and versatile three-bedroom detached is in a fantastic location - especially if you work at one of the nearby businesses and can look forward to spending more time at home with your family.

It’s perfect for families looking for a luxurious yet welcoming property in immaculate condition.
