Property Summary

PERFECTLY POSITIONED just by the River Cocker on a quiet road which leads either into the park or into the town centre this lovely and very charming three bedroomed mid terraced home is just fabulous. Loved by the present owners for the last 43 years it’s with regret that they’re selling it and we’re hoping that the next owners will enjoy it as much as they have. From the front rooms there’s a bird’s eye view of the river and a heron frequents right opposite on a regular basis, along with much other wildlife. Inside there are two reception rooms and a kitchen and on the two levels above there are three double bedrooms and a large bathroom. There are small outside areas to the front and rear and off road parking for one car. You’ll want to update it and install heating etc and the good news is that very little water effected it internally during the flood in 2010. A truly lovely opportunity for you which gives you a good mix of semi-rural life as well as being in close proximity to the town centre and all it has to offer.

About this property

"We've lived here for 43 years and have a beautiful setting by the River Cocker and its handy for the park and town too. We have very good neighbours who are helpful and we love watching the heron on his perch just opposite"

Double glazing is installed
There is no heating other than gas fires in the ground floor rooms

FLOOD: The property sits in close proximity to the River Cocker but as it is in an elevated position only a small amount of water got into the first reception room (through the air bricks) during the flood in 2010.
