This beautiful and stylishly presented home, located on a popular road, has been greatly improved by the current owners - who have installed a new kitchen and bathroom among other things - and is for sale with the benefit of planning permission in place for an extension to the rear.

If this were carried out, the extra space would increase the depth of the lounge as well as create an additional utility and ground-floor shower room off the kitchen.

The property, ideal for a family, is approached via a brick-paved off-road driveway providing parking for several vehicles alongside the lawned front garden.

Towards the back of the house, along the driveway, is a detached single garage suitable for a small car or storage.

The front door, which is sheltered by an open porch, leads into a light and airy hallway with a useful storage cupboard.

Just inside the hall are the stairs to the first floor while doors lead to the spacious lounge and kitchen diner.

The lounge - which is almost 17ft by 12ft - is bathed in sunlight from dual-aspect windows front and back and has double doors to the back garden. A chimney breast remains within the room, allowing for the reinstatement of a gas fire if desired.

The stylish kitchen diner has been upgraded to provide a beautifully fitted kitchen with a wide range of white high-gloss soft-close wall, drawer and base units with kickboard lighting.

Solid oak worktops extending into a breakfast bar area with pendant lights above while ceiling spotlights illuminate the rest of the space.

A Belfast sink with mixer tap and five-ring gas hob with extractor hood and double oven are complemented by a microwave, fridge-freezer and dishwasher fitted with the units. There is plumbing for a washing machine and the floor has an attractive grey tile-effect covering.

On the first floor are a large double bedroom, two smaller doubles and the family bathroom.

The master bedroom is located at the front of the house with elevated views over the front garden.

The second and third bedrooms are located at the rear and benefit from elevated views over the rear garden.

The bathroom has been impressively fitted with a three-piece suite including an L-shaped bath with wall-mounted rainfall and shower attachment.

Attractive grey-toned cabinetry houses the on-trend square basin and toilet and the walls are tiled in a complementary colour.

Externally the front garden has a manageable lawn with surrounding flower bed borders and shrubs.

At the back of the house is a patio area directly outside the double doors from the lounge which is an ideal place to sit and relax, or dine alfresco.

Elsewhere in the garden stone steps lead up to a gravel path alongside raised beds filled with mature low-maintenance shrubs and bushes. The path continues to a further lawned garden with space for a shed and round to the garage.

The property is in an area sought-after by family buyers with eas access to the nearby and well-regarded Ulverston Victoria High School and Croftlands nursery, infants and junior schools.

It is also conveniently situated for all the amenities of Ulverston including independent businesses, banks, cinema and eateries. Bus services are good and there is a train station.
