Couple have many happy memories of the home they watched being built
IT really was all about location for Carol and Marsh Bradley when they were looking to move house 27 years ago, and a detached family home in a quiet Barrow cul-de-sac was exactly what they wanted.
They noticed the plans in thefor new houses in a part of Barrow they knew and loved.
Plus they were able to choose the plot they wanted and then were able to watch Leck Construction build it, and have a say in the layout of their home.
This immaculate property has a lawned garden with rockeries and double drive and garage to the front.
The porch leads into a large entrance hallway with a spindle and banister staircase, coving and dark wood doors to all the rooms. There is also a ground-floor washroom with WC, wash basin and one radiator.
There is a large bay-windowed lounge with an open arch leading through into a dining room, which has double doors leading to a lovely south-facing conservatory.
In turn, the conservatory has its own double doors leading out into the back garden.
Sitting in this room gives the couple a great view of the glorious sunsets to the west.
Carol said: "It was lovely to come home from the Post Office we owned and be able to relax in the conservatory."
The property has a large, modern, fully fitted kitchen, with glass table and chairs, which also doubles up as a breakfast room.
All of the appliances are included in the sale price.
They have had some great parties in the house with friends and neighbours and have a lot of very happy memories to take with them.
Upstairs there are four large double bedrooms with a main en suite, and a family bathroom.
The bathroom has a bath, WC, wash basin, over bath shower hose from mixer taps, shower screen and a built in cupboard with hot water tank.
The two front bedrooms overlook the hills around Furness Abbey and, when they are up early enough, watching the beautiful sunrise in the east has always been a great start to the day.
There is a large, very attractive south-facing garden to the back of the property, which is very private with mature trees, plants and a paved patio. There is also a greenhouse.
The property is double glazed and has full gas central heating.
This beautiful family home is ideally located for schools and colleges, such as Chetwynde, St Bernards and Barrow Sixth Form College
Carol said: "For the last couple of years there has just been the two of us rattling around in the house and, having sold our business recently, we have decided to go and live in Spain where we bought a home 16 years ago, in a lovely quiet area on the Costa del Sol.
"But we have loved living here in this house.”
