In Bromley Cross, on the southern edge of the West Pennine Moors, discover Number Nine, Higher Ridings, a detached four-bedroom family home set within a residential estate.
Flanked by a screen of woodland along one boundary, off road parking is available on the paved driveway to the front, with an integral garage also at hand.
A neat front garden precedes the front door, festooned to both sides by trailing vines that blaze a glowing red in autumn.
Step through the contemporary black front door into a bright entrance hall. Light filters in through the trio of windows in the front door and the large rectangular side panel.
Decorated in muted grey tones, immediately to the left, beyond a smart oak door, a WC is situated, with fitted storage.
Solid wood, parquet flooring is concealed beneath hardwearing laminate – ideal for low-maintenance upkeep for busy families.
To the right, the large living room extends the full length of the home; the consummate family space.
Decorated in sky blues, greys and cloudy white, this lounge has a peaceful feel. Bright and welcoming, the enormous front window draws daylight in, filling the room.
Ample space for sofas, armchairs, television, sideboard and other furnishings, this room is also clad in quality laminate flooring.
Hunker down on the sofa in front of the cosy fireplace in the winter time, but in the summer months, throw open the patio doors and let the fun flow outdoors onto the patio; perfect for alfresco dining.
From the entrance hall continue directly ahead, past the understairs storage cupboard and into the open-plan and impressively sized Shaker-style kitchen-diner.
Integrated appliances include electric oven with gas hob and fridge-freezer , with ample space within the array of cream cupboard units and drawers for all your pots, pans, crockery and cutlery.
Beyond the stainless-steel sink, terracotta, hessian and cream splashback tiles coat the walls, with views out to the lush and colourful garden beyond.
Set before the patio doors is a dining table and chairs, perfect for modern family feasting, enabling all the family to be together at mealtimes.
Creating a perfect flow around the home – great for parties – doors open out from both the kitchen-diner and lounge onto the rear patio.
Sneak a peek through to the utility room, a new addition to the property, housing the washing machine, freezer and a second sink, with extra storage cupboards to stash all your overspill groceries and crockery.
A handy door leads through from here into the garage.
Returning to the hallway, take the white spindled staircase up to the light and airy landing on the first floor, where four comfortably sized bedrooms await.
Enjoying peaceful views out to the garden and woodland at the rear are two large bedrooms, perfect for children.
Carpeted in plush blue-grey tones, both bedrooms to the rear are fitted with natural ash-toned wardrobes, drawers and shelving, maximising the floor space available.
A third bedroom, to the front of the house, contains a walk-in wardrobe – ideal for an image conscious teenager looking for their own space in which to perfect their look.
Perfect too as a study for those working from home – stash your files and paperwork away from view.
Carpeted in neutral grey, with whitewashed walls, this is a light and welcoming bedroom.
Also overlooking the front of the Higher Ridings is the spacious master bedroom.
Dressed in tones of pale grey, this soothing space is the ultimate sanctuary. With high-quality, solid wood fitted wardrobes to two walls, there is an abundance of storage space for all your clothes and essentials.
Newly refurbished, sneak a peek at the ensuite, with WC, wash basin and large walk-in shower.
Also located on the first floor is the family bathroom. Another room to have had new additions, the shower over the bath is newly installed, with wash basin and WC also fitted.
Spacious upstairs and free-flowing downstairs, this is the dream hide-and-seek house for youngsters!
Popular with children and adults alike is the large and sunny rear garden.
Enjoy family barbecues and get-togethers on the large patio beyond, accessible from both the dining room and the living room, stepping down onto a lower decking area.
Beyond a graveled area, the garden opens up to lawn, with mature, perennially flowering borders and a secret trampoline area at the rear, alongside a shed.
Next to the house, acting almost as an unofficial extension to the garden is woodland that displays a symphony of colours in autumn.
Private and not overlooked, enjoy relaxing in solitude in this vast and secluded rear garden.
To the side of the house is a purpose-built area for storing the bins out of view of the main garden.
