5 Bed Detached - Offers Over 560,000

A stunning detached house which has recently been redesigned by an Architect and totally refurbished to exacting standards to provide beautiful contemporary accommodation with high quality fittings and an excellent modern design throughout. The property now boasts five bedrooms and three "new" bathrooms. The large entrance hallway has a striking feature return staircase with glass balustrade and oak handrail. There is a cosy sitting room and a fabulous open-plan living dining kitchen with panoramic patio windows, a contemporary kitchen with island unit with breakfast bar and built-in dining table which was designed and installed by a local company using preconstructed units imported from Germany.

Also on the ground floor are two bedrooms, one is currently used as a study, plus a luxury 4-piece bathroom and utility room. Upstairs the landing has a feature gable style apex window offering excellent light and views across the open green towards distant fells. There is a luxurious master suite with feature gable window, dressing area, walk-in wardrobe and a superb 3-piece ensuite shower room. Also on this floor are two other bedrooms and a shower room.

Externally the property is sat on a good-sized corner plot with a driveway and single garage to the front. The property overlooks a "pocket park" which provides an attractive greenspace with horse chestnut trees. To the side there is a lawned garden with a patio and a second drive with ample parking which leads to a large garage for large car with significant storage along one wall and in the roof space. At the rear there is an attractive, private, enclosed garden with lawn and decked patio constructed using composite boards. Attached to the rear of the garage is an impressive fully insulated multi-purpose room with bi-fold doors. This room was completed in December 2023 and provides an excellent opportunity for work or hobby space with the versatility to be used for multiple purposes such as a gym, home office, games room or cinema room.

The house has been completely renovated throughout with all walls and ceilings in the property having been replastered, all original pipework replaced, a new roof, rewire, modern heating system and insulation, the windows and doors have been replaced and there is an alarm system, security cameras and electric blinds.

Read is a small village with excellent access to the M65 & M66 motorways offering quick access to Blackburn, Burnley, Bury and Bolton. Equally the nearby A59 offers convenient access to Preston and Skipton. These major roads are less than 10 minutes from this extensively renovated house originally constructed around 1965. The Village has a Cricket Club and the adjacent village of Simonstone offers a Tennis Club. Read is close to the village of Whalley and the nearby town of Clitheroe and the retail and leisure opportunities afforded from these historic locations. Read is linked by a frequent bus service between Burnley and Clitheroe. The property is also located a short walk from Read St John"s Primary School and is within the catchment of Ribble Valley secondary schools including Clitheroe Royal Grammar School.

The property benefits from high-speed internet and it is understood fibre optic internet is due for installation in the near future.

The property has not only extended the property's footprint but has also provided the opportunity to introduce a significant quantity of extra insulation. Recent gas and electric bills are available to view to demonstrate the impact this has made.

Enter the village of Read from the direction of Clitheroe and Whalley on Whalley Road, take the first left turn into George Lane and the first right turn into Tennyson Avenue.
