The Clever Way To Enjoy Winckley Square Without Paying Winckley Square Prices!

This tastefully updated and surprisingly spacious Grade II Listed Georgian townhouse is a conveniently located family home between the Square and leafy Avenham Park.

Winckley Square has been one of Preston’s most exclusive addresses since the 19th century. It’s always been one of the most sought after places to live, attracting the great and the good since Georgian times.

But if you’re looking to live on the Square in 2024 you’re faced with a pretty limited choice. You'll find expensive apartments or super-expensive three storey townhouses - nothing that really ticks the “normal family home” boxes.

So why not look round the corner? Regent Street is still in the conservation area and shares the same Georgian heritage. And it’s halfway between the Square and leafy Avenham Park.

This traditional period property has an unchanged layout, with two reception rooms that both benefit from high ceilings, sash windows and attractive fireplaces.

There’s a separate dining room next to the kitchen, meaning you could consider using one of the reception rooms as an extra ground floor bedroom.

The kitchen at the rear has plenty of storage space in the fitted units, along with an integrated oven and hob and room for your appliances.

The first floor has three double bedrooms, the family bathroom and a separate w/c.

The stylish part-tiled bathroom is at the rear, accessed through one of the bedrooms - so this could be classed as an ensuite.

If the whole family needs access it may be worth classing the bedroom as a dressing room, or considering another use rather than as a bedroom.

There is a substantial basement with two rooms. It does need work but it’s a versatile space that could have a number of uses. You could turn one room into an office or a TV room/games room, perhaps using the second as an additional bathroom. All subject to building control approval, of course.

As you’d expect from a property so close to the city centre, outside space is limited to a low maintenance back yard - but you’ve got plenty of green space on your doorstep.

You’ll love living so close to the square, with guided walks and live music performances in the summer as part of Preston Jazz Festival.

And if you long for riverside walks or a larger green space to explore, Avenham Park is literally at the other end of the street.

It’s also an incredibly handy location if you work in the city centre, or have an active social life where you regularly meet up with friends.

If you have a car there’s residents on-street parking in front of the house.

This tastefully updated Grade II listed property ticks all the period property boxes and is in a handy location, only a short walk from the city centre and conveniently located between Winckley Square and Avenham Park.
