PROPERTY: Stunning Barrow home ticks all the boxes

5 July 2017 4:57PM

This is a stunning home which certainly provides the wow factor and ticks so many boxes.

Its accommodation has been significantly improved with the addition of a large glazed garden room and a games room as well as having its own private home cinema.

This fabulous property has been a labour of love for the last few years for the current homeowners. It has benefited from a comprehensive programme of works and improvements, including extending the accommodation with an impressive highly glazed garden room which overlooks the upper section of the garden.

Briefly, the accommodation includes three bedrooms, two reception rooms, one bathroom and a large driveway and garden areas.

Inside the light and spacious hallway welcomes people into this comfortable home before leading into the bay fronted living room where there is a central fireplace and decorative coving around the ceiling.

The original, rather small kitchen is now the utility space with fitted units with Shaker-style panel doors and a contrasting black laminate worktop with an inset sink and space beneath with plumbing for a washing machine and space for a clothes dryer.

There is a separate WC compartment.

The former dining room has been transformed into a contemporary kitchen which is a truly stunning space with a central island, cream gloss cabinet fronts and a black granite worktop with an under-mounted stainless steel sink.

There are quality branded appliances throughout, including two fan-assisted electric ovens with self-cleaning function, a coffee maker, a microwave, a hob and also a built-in dishwasher.

There is also a large space to accommodate an American-style fridge freezer with plumbing concealed behind.

One not-to-be-missed added extra in the kitchen is the under-floor heating and solid wood flooring.

Beyond the kitchen is a lovely garden room which has a fully glazed roof, access on to the upper portion of the garden which has been hard landscaped with paving, artificial lawn and raised beds with concealed coloured lighting. Again, the additional comfort comes in the form of underfloor heating.

The first floor accommodation retains its original layout of two excellent-sized double bedrooms and also a nice sized single bedroom plus a large family bathroom that has been created by joining the original bathroom and separate WC.

The bathroom is tiled throughout and has a stylish white suite with WC, a rectangular wash basin with cupboard storage beneath and, finally, a panelled bath with shower area, glazed screen and wall mounted shower.

Outside there is plenty of off-road parking at the front of the property on the recently resurfaced driveway.

Through a gate to the side of the house leads to the gardens and also to the former garages that have also received plenty of attention and investment.

Divided into two areas, this now boasts a games room and something that many people may wish for, a private home cinema with built-in 7.1 surround sound.

Beyond the entertaining space in the garden is the large cabin style summerhouse which has been used as a home.

The extensive gardens are also a particular feature incorporating a summerhouse, entertaining area and hot tub which is open to separate negotiation.

As well as being in a popular residential location, the house in Flass Lane is only a five-minute drive away from Barrow’s town centre and is well positioned for easy access to Roose railway station, a Tesco and a Co-op, bus services and also to nearby Newbarns primary school.

There are other primary schools plus a secondary school and college within a few minutes drive.
