A LOVELY high-specification family home that is newly built and with a spacious layout is now available close to playing fields and a park.

The Mardale house type is from Esteem Homes and is a detached four-bedroom property on a development that occupies the site of the former Parkview Grammar School.

The ground floor has a fabulous contemporary open-plan kitchen diner, with bi-folding doors out to the garden and a fully tiled kitchen floor.

This space is perfect for the demands of today’s families.

You could be cooking the dinner while chatting, or watching the children do their homework, and then sitting down to a meal - the dining area is ample enough for table and chairs.

The separate living room is a generous size, full of light from large windows and warmed by modern fire in a feature fireplace.

Upstairs is an en-suite master bedroom with the other three bedrooms sharing the smart family bathroom.

Outside there are gardens to the front and rear, the latter with a patio ideal for al-fresco dining and entertaining.

A block-paved driveway complements the single garage

Esteem Homes sales manager Bradley Dewhurst said: “The Mardale has a fully fitted kitchen with your choice of finishes and Zanussi appliances as standard.

“It has a high-spec interior which you’re sure to love and appreciate for many years.”
