HIGHLY DESIRABLE & EXCLUSIVE TOWNELEYSIDE / METICULOUSLY MAINTAINED RESIDENCE / MANICURED GARDENS FRONT & REAR / Located beyond the urban limits within an exclusive row of varying styled property affording warm and welcoming accommodation to suit the growing family.

Located beyond the urban limits of town, Towneleyside remains a highly desirable and sought after area, boasting an exclusive row of varying styled property overlooking Towneley Parkland. If golf is your past time, Towneley Golf Club is just a few hundred metres away; whilst all the amenities of Burnley town centre are within a short drive.

Benns & Holmes were well-established French Polishers and Cabinet Makers in the town of Burnley, but Mr Benns had aspirations to construct a residence built to his own meticulous standards, realising his dream in this pair of semi-detached homes. Completed circa 1912 and having remained in the custody of only two families since then, Runnymede does not disappoint, standing proud with manicured gardens to the foreground, attractive brick built elevations and a twin pillar porch. Internally there is a warmth to the reception, where an attention to the detail can be appreciated and has been sympathetically retained with the comforts of modern day living. Each of the reception rooms boasts an impressive original fireplace with mirrored mantle over, whilst the quality fitted kitchen has since been extended to appeal to today’s taste with space for a dining table. What was previously an outside store has also now been enveloped within the accommodation of the house to provide a separate utility space and WC. There are three bedrooms to the first floor, all of which boast an open outlook over private gardens and towards parkland to the front, together with a bathroom and a separate WC. The meticulously maintained gardens remain a credit to the current owners and have to be seen to be appreciated. A long paved driveway, detached garage / workshop and impressive Victorian inspired glasshouse, are further features. An early appointment to view is highly recommended in order to avoid disappointment.
