Tower Cottages is situated on Middleton Road in Heysham and has plenty of history dating back to the mid 1800's. The story of the Tower is bound up with two families of ‘landed gentry’, the Knowlys from the London area and the Heskeths of Lancashire of which there are now road names named after both close by.
Times have now changed and the area has everything you will need on your doorstep now making it a great area to bring up your family. Just around the corner on School Road there is a primary schools, with other schools also being just a short distance away. The village itself has St Peters Church, a popular village pub and stunning walks along the cliff tops of Morecambe Bay.
There is also a Co-Op store and Beech Stores for your local shopping needs whilst just across the road is the Doctors surgery. Also close to hand there is a library, a butchers, a florist, fish and chip shop, a Chinese and an Indian Restaurant to name but a few. This area really does have it all, why not come and explore?
Ground floor rooms
The main entrance to this extended home opens into the hallway which allows access to the stairs, the kitchen and one of the living rooms. There is a great sized double glazed window on the half landing which allows the daylight to fill this space creating a lovely welcoming feel.
The main living room is actually in the extended part of the home. This neutrally decorated space is the perfect place to sit and relax after a long hard day with your feet up in front of the telly. We love how bright and airy this room feels thanks to a window to the side and the large sliding patio doors which will open out onto the front garden area which enjoys sunshine all day long on those summer days.
The kitchen separates the two living areas and this room has been solidly put together with real wooden units and work tops which can be sanded and treated time after time. There is plenty of storage and more than enough space for all the white goods you will require. From the sink area at the far end of the kitchen there is a double glazed window which looks out into the private garden area at the rear.
The second living room doubles up as a dining room also. This space runs the full length of the home allowing a dual aspect to both the front and rear of the property. The lounge area has a coal effect gas fire which is the main focal point and for those that like to entertain there is enough room to add a generous sized table. A handy cupboard is available underneath the stairs and there is a frosted double glazed door which will lead you out to the rear of the home.
As you reach the top of the stairs, the landing area allows access to all the rooms on this level along with access to an insulated loft.
The master bedroom is one of the lightest rooms in the home thanks to the great sized double glazed window which looks down Middleton Road, but then there is also a sliding patio door which opens out onto the flat roof of the extension which is a little different and maybe there is something you could do with this space with a little thinking.
The second bedroom can also accommodate a double bed if required and looks over the front of the home, this room would make a great guest room or teenagers room thanks to the space available. The third bedroom is actually used as a nursery at present however will accommodate single bed if needed or maybe you work from home and want an office space, the choice is all yours.
Finally inside is the rather spacious three piece bathroom which comes with a range of built in storage allowing space to store your towels and bedding whilst also providing the option to remove said storage to create a 4 piece bathroom. The bathroom itself has been fitted with a three piece suite in white and has a shower over the bath. The room has been partially tiled to complement and also has a frosted double glazed window.
Low Maintenance Exterior
To the front of the home there is a great sized shaled area which is fenced off to make this an enclosed space. There is gated access from the side which opens onto a flagged pathway where there is a seating area along with access to the main front entrance.
A driveway to the side of the home leads up to a garage which has an up and over door. The garage is used for storage at the moment and comes with both power and light which is always handy. From the garage there is also a power supply to the ornamental pond in the rear garden and a door from the garage will open into your rear garden.
Once you are round to the back of the property there is again a low maintenance area which could be brightened up with some potted plants or maybe add your own table and chairs to sit and relax in this peaceful, private space. Access to two storage sheds can be gained whilst steps lead you down to the communal courtyard area at the rear where a further two storage areas can be found.
