5 bed bungalow to buy in PR4

Dreaming of the perfect home in the perfect locationits a familiar fantasy. At Dow Edge, in the friendly village of Freckleton, dreams are a made reality.

Tucked off the bypass on route to the coastal town of Lytham St Annes, a sign welcomes you to Freckleton Village of Music and Flowers; it doesnt disappoint.

Living up to its title, admire the lovingly tended and colourful beds and borders that adorn the village, as you continue to the oldest part of Freckleton where houses and local shops make way for countryside and marshes.

OWNER QUOTE: You wake up in the morning to nothing but birdsong. Weve seen herons and kingfishers in the brook at the bottom.

Pull up onto the newly installed block-paved driveway, where there is ample room for at least three cars, before making your way to the front door.

Welcome home.

Solid wood flooring stretches out underfoot, with crisp neutral walls and white ceilings allowing for the free-flow of light throughout.

Conveniently on hand to the left is the family bathroom, part tiled to the walls and featuring bath with overhead shower, wash basin, WC and radiator.

Following the hallway ahead and around to the right, step through into the sociable and contemporary open-plan lounge-kitchen. Immediately, you are serenaded by mesmerising views out over the countryside through a wall of windows to the rear.

Blurring boundaries between the outdoors and in, step out through the French doors and enjoy summertime barbecues surrounded by breathtaking views. Overhead spotlighting accompanies the light flow from the outdoors, suffusing the space with cheer.

In the winter time, curl up on the sofa in front of the contemporary style electric fire, set within a stylish surround. A quartet of radiators imbues the room with additional warmth, with ambient lighting courtesy of the wall-mounted fixtures.

So spacious is this lounge, there is ample room for a formal dining table. What better backdrop for a feast with family and friends than these rural views?

Opening conveniently on to the lounge is the expansive and comprehensively appointed kitchen. Carpet makes way for tiling, as high gloss, fitted wall and base units coat the walls, providing a plethora of storage space.

An array of integrated appliances creates an easy-to-operate, spacious kitchen, including microwave, double oven and five-ring gas hob with extractor fan. Two sinks plus an integrated dishwasher ensure a fuss free clean up after the cooking is complete.

Further storage is available within the central island, which also serves as a convenient breakfast bar, ideal for weekend brunches and informal dining.

Returning to the entrance hall, discover further storage above in the fully boarded loft.

When evening falls and sleep calls, choose from the four double bedrooms and one single bedroom provided at Dow Edge.

Turning left out of the lounge, discover the master bedroom. Coving decorates the ceiling as it does throughout the rooms at Dow Edge. Providing atmosphere and cheer, an elegant electric fire is fitted within an ornamental surround.

Light pours in through the window, offering views out onto the patio area. Sneak a peek through to the ensuite bathroom, fitted with bath with overhead shower, chrome heated ladder rail, WC, wash basin and spotlighting.

Turning right out of the kitchen-lounge is another potential master bedroom.

Framing spectacular views out over Freckleton marsh, and down to Dow Brook, this light, bright bedroom opens out onto the patio through French doors. Imagine waking up to the low mists and birdsong over the fields

Carpeted and cosy, fitted, walnut-toned wardrobes and drawers offer plentiful storage for your clothing needs, with a fitted headboard completing the room.

Next door, bedroom three shares the same beatific countryside views as its neighbour, and also features a range of storage including fitted bedside tables and built-in wardrobes.

Ideal as a study or a guest room, discover the fifth bedroom next door. Traditional touches including coving and a chair rail add character to this room, which looks out to the elevated decking suntrap, overlooking the marsh.

Located next door to the family bathroom, discover bedroom four, carpeted and also overlooking the raised decking. With five blissful bedrooms to choose from, there is room for all the family at Dow Edge.

Step outside to discover an attached utility room. Plumbed for a washing machine, this is the perfect place in which to clean down the dog and stash your wellies after an invigorating walk across the many paths available on Freckleton Marsh.

Enjoy the stunning views from the comfort of the sun room, perfect for an evening tipple as the sun sets. Located to the rear of the building is a store room for tools, patio furniture and mowers.

Explore the lawned area, leading down to Dow Brook - a shallow waterway perfect for dipping fishing nets and splashing wellies after which this handsome home is named. Pick up the Natural England coastal path, which begins at Heysham Head, from the bottom of the garden.

From the elevated decking, admire the ever-changing views, which on a clear day stretch as far as the Welsh hills. Spy the glow of Winter Hills mast, lit up at night. A large plot, containing a courtyard, lawn area, patio and decking, there is so much potential at Dow Edge.
