Tucked away in the corner of a quiet residential cul-de-sac on the highly sought after Haverbreaks Estate, is this wonderful 4 bedroom detached family home that boasts lovely countryside and canal views. The first to be built on the street in the 1930s, 1 Haverbreaks Place is a unique home with a grand period feel. The living accommodation is set out over two floors. The ground floor offers spacious and versatile spaces that are perfect for larger families, briefly comprising Living Room, Dining Room, Kitchen and utility. On the first floor there are a total of 3 double bedrooms and a generous single, along with a house bathroom. Whilst some of the rooms within the property could benefit from material modernisation, the property has been well maintained during its time as a loving family home.

The tiered garden at the rear is a great space for kids, fully enclosed and with a lovely outlook over fields and towards the Lancaster canal.
