LOCATION Situated in one of the town's prime residential areas, this property is conveniently situated for access to one of the town's larger employers being Furness General Hospital.
Lakes Parade is also close by where there is a general convenience store and other small businesses. A bus service travels close by, providing connections around the town. Just a short distance further away, there is The Bay Horse and The Kings Arms pubs, a hair salon, Dane Ghyll Community Primary School and also Barrow Golf Club.
DESCRIPTION This property is extremely well presented with tasteful and modern décor and equally up-to-date fixtures and fittings to the bathroom, shower room and the kitchen. The entrance vestibule leads you into the main hallway where there is access from here into the two reception rooms, kitchen, ground floor bedroom and family bathroom.
The main family lounge is a lovely sized room that has a view into the front garden and also a fireplace to the centre of the room with a cream coloured surround, a marble conglomerate inset and hearth and a gas coal-effect fire.
The adjacent reception room is also a spacious room providing a family seating area, as well as a generous sized dining space where there is access into the adjacent kitchen and also via the glazed doors into the conservatory.
There is open access from this room onto the staircase which ascends to the further two bedrooms and shower room. Within the family seating area, there is a fireplace with a painted surround, a marble conglomerate inset and hearth and an electric fire.
The kitchen offers extensive cupboard and drawer storage, with the work surface above extending to form a small breakfast bar area. The kitchen is equipped with an integrated oven, gas hob and cooker hood plus a one and a half bowl sink unit with a drainer and mixer tap.
There is also an integrated fridge, an integrated freezer with further space for an upright fridge/freezer, open fronted housing for a microwave oven and plumbing for a washing machine. This dual aspect room also has a built-in shelved pantry-style cupboard plus a side access door opening onto the patio.
Accessed from the front part of the hallway is the first of the three double bedrooms, which has a pleasant view of the front garden.
Completing the ground floor accommodation is a smartly presented bathroom that has a traditional three-piece suite that includes a WC, a rectangular shaped wash basin with a monobloc-style tap, a bath with side mounted taps plus a shower area with a thermostatically operated shower and a glazed screen fitted alongside. There is also a wall-mounted vanity mirror with integrated lighting, inset lighting to the ceiling and an extractor fan system.
The first floor landing provides access to the remaining two double bedrooms, both generously proportioned with the larger of the two being at the rear. This rear bedroom also has a useful built-in storage cupboard over the staircase as well as a lovely far-reaching view across the rooftops to the distant sea where you can clearly see Piel Island and its ruined Castle.
Last of all is the shower room, which has a full three-piece suite including a WC, a vanity wash hand basin that has a cupboard below providing storage plus a shower which has a sliding glazed door and a dual head shower fitting within, with a fixed overhead rain shower and a second attachment on a flexi-hose.
Externally, the property has open access onto a generous sized driveway that is covered with decorative slate chippings, providing parking for at least two or three vehicles. There is access to the detached garage which has mains operated power and lighting within.
The garden is fully enclosed alongside the driveway with a mature hedgerow providing some privacy. There is a large planted flowerbed with narrower borders running below the front facing windows.
There is gated access alongside the garage leading into the paved patio garden, which continues round to the rear of the property. The rear garden is stepped over several levels with mature shrubs and planting to the borders, enjoying an open and sunny aspect.
