Property Location

In the friendly town of Haslingden, within easy reach of the shops, schools and parks, discover easy family living at Fields Road.

 

Turning left after the handy Tesco Superstore, drive along the quiet Fields Road, with its elevated views toward the surrounding countryside, before pulling onto the Indian stone paved driveway where there is ample parking.

 

A traditional 1930s semi to the exterior, step through the front door and onto the slate effect tiles in the entrance hall to discover a traditional home with modern comforts.

 

Warmth and welcome

Turning left, open the part-glazed oak door into the living room, a light and bright room overlooking the driveway and planted borders. Warmth emanates from the holly-berry red feature wall, within which is housed a decorative multi-fuel stove, which could be commissioned back into use. To the walls and above, a traditional picture rail and decorative ceiling provide a nod to the origins of the home. Where better to unwind on a Friday evening than on the sofa, curled up watching television with a takeaway from the local pizzeria at the end of the road?

 

Making your way through to the kitchen, oak flooring extends underfoot – continuing through to the understairs storage cupboard and cloakroom with wash basin and WC. In the kitchen, grey wooden cabinetry offers ample storage, with two curved end units and a dresser. A large induction hob is set beneath an extractor hood, with a double oven, integrated fridge and freezer, dishwasher and plumbing for washing machine. A sink with chef’s tap looks out over the well-maintained and manicured garden to the rear.

 

Feast your eyes

Flow through to the open-plan dining area, where a dining table is set across from French doors which open out into the garden. A Smeg gas fire issues warmth ensuring this space is comfortable and cosy throughout the year.

 

From the entrance hall, take the carpeted stairs up, brightly lit courtesy of a tall window on the turn, before emerging on the landing. Four traditional doors lead off to three bedrooms and a bathroom.

 

Following the landing along to the front, step into the third bedroom, perfectly sized for a silgle bedroom or nursery and currently used as an office. Overlooking the front garden and drive, this room is light and bright, with large wardrobes to the side and an office desk in the opposite corner, in front of the window.

 

Sweet dreams

Coming out of this bedroom, turn left into the main bedroom, carpeted underfoot for comfort and brimming in light courtesy of a large window overlooking the front. A spacious bedroom, note the original picture rail skirting the wall, where green-blue tones harmonise with cream colours. Built-in wooden wardrobes provide plenty of storage, whilst the feature fireplace adds further character.

 

To the rear of the home, a good-sized second bedroom is cosily carpeted, dressed in neutral tones to three walls, with a feature aubergine hue to the rear wall. Abundant light flows in through the rear window and Velux overhead, with delightful views out over the rear garden. Storage abounds with space for double wardrobes and a double bed.

 

Serving the three bedrooms, at the head of the stairs, a door opens to the bathroom, tiled to the walls, and furnished with a bath containing overhead shower, wash basin, WC and heated chrome towel rail.

 

Green escapes

Outside, the sunny west-facing garden is awash with colour from springtime onwards, when the first blossom appears on the mature fruit trees. Move between the manicured lawn to the paved patio and elevated decking to soak up the sun throughout the day.

 

Manageable yet spacious, this garden is perfect for families with children or pets, with two garden sheds for all your garden furniture and tools alongside a handy wood store.

 

Out and about

Nestled in a friendly community, life here is ideal for families, with lots of children and access to schools close by.

 

Within walking distance to Victoria Park, there are no main roads to cross when it’s time to head out and play. Enjoy a nature hunt at the old quarry nearby, home to rabbits, foxes and deer. Carry on from there to Whittaker Park, with its museum, newly refurbished cafe, football pitches, play park, bowling green and tennis courts.

 

There is also a small field directly behind the house where children play. With many fantastic primary schools nearby, choose from Broadway, St Veronica’s and Helmshore – all of which have outstanding Ofsted ratings. Nearby secondary schools include Bacup & Rawtenstall Grammar School, a local non fee paying grammar school that is within catchment area and Ofsted rated ‘Good’ Haslingden High School and All Saints Roman Catholic and Language College.

 

Get to know the locals in nearby local pubs The Rose and Crown and The Woolpack, both only a few minutes’ walk away. Haslingden is home to a cricket club, represented in the Lancashire League. Dine out at one of the many pubs and restaurants in the centre of the town, only a 15-minute walk away.

 

For all the essentials, Tesco is only a two-minute walk away, with a car shop and pizzeria also just down the road. For artisanal products, head to the monthly farmers market in Helmshore. Meanwhile, nearby Rawtenstall town centre is a five-minute drive or a 25-minute walk away.

 

Handy for commuting, Fields Road is on the 464 bus route from Accrington to Rochdale, or you can walk five minutes to the Manchester bus stop which takes you into the city in around 45 mins (or drive to Manchester city centre in around 30 minutes). For day trips to the seaside, Blackpool is accessible in 45 minutes. For leisurely train trips, the East Lancashire Railway is a heritage railway running from Rawtenstall to Bury, through Irwell Vale, Ramsbottom and Burrs Country Park – often holding special ‘Santa services’ at Christmas. Fields Road is also well located for accessing Bury, Burnley, Blackburn and Bolton – all of which can be reached in less than 30 minutes.

 

An ideal home for a young couple starting out in their family life, Fields Road is a comfortable home with a fantastic garden and great transport links on the fringe of both town and country.
