Main Description:

The House:

'Fairhaven' is offered to the market with no chain and is a much loved home which has been owned within the same family for many years. The property has been well cared for and includes an excellent modern bathroom. It is clear that the fixtures and fittings are of high specification though some buyers may consider aspects to be dated and therefore the home does allow great potential for modernisation and or extension. The rooms are well configured for those who may wish to create open plan kitchen and living space opening onto the garden. The three bedrooms are an excellent generous size and the traditional build style which is illustrated by aspects such as the grand entrance hall, quality slated roof and excellent and well proportioned plot are very strong features of the property.

The Area:

Manchester Road runs through the heart of Blackrod village which in itself benefits from the A6 bypass which takes the majority of traffic passing by the village. This particular location is well placed for those looking for the popular Manchester Road County Primary School and equally Blackrod train station is just around half a mile away and is on the mainline to Manchester. Junction 6 of the M61 is around 2 miles away and these transport links are a consistently popular feature of the area. The village itself includes a number of shops and services together with pubs and restaurants with a greater quantity of retail outlets spread between Adlington, Chorley and Horwich town centres together with the Middlebrook 'out of town' retail complex. As previously mentioned there is popular local schooling together with a variety of further childcare facilities and the village also has access to secondary schools. All in all we feel that the location offers a very family-friendly package.



From the traffic lit junction with the A6 and Station Road proceed up the hill, taking the turning on the left where the subject property will be on the right after just a short distance.
