73 Shelley Road, Ashton-on-Ribble Lancaster Canal



  • Mooring
  • Offside Water's Edge


This terraced house offers an amazing opportunity to refurbish a canalside home to your own tastes and standards. The house is set close to the Preston terminus of the Lancaster Canal, and the garden benefits from potential mooring and fishing rights subject to the relevant permissions. The outlook to the rear is surprisingly picturesque, and the canal here is especially wide, with a tree lined towpath, a winding hole and a small basin through a bridge almost opposite the house.

The house is in an urban location between Ashton-on-Ribble and Preston with good access to local amenities and schools. It is set in a long neat row of similar red brick terraced houses, immediately opposite a well presented red brick clothing warehouse. The houses here front directly onto the pavement.

The front door opens into a small porch area which leads into the sitting room at the front of the house. Stairs rise from the sitting room to the first floor. A door from the sitting room opens into a separate dining room. To the rear of the house there is a small brick built kitchen extension on the left and a modest UPVC conservatory on the right. Each of these has a door to the back garden. Upstairs a landing leads to a small bedroom and a good sized shower room to the front and a large master bedroom to the rear, with an attractive period fireplace. This bedroom overlooks the garden and the canal.

The garden immediately behind the house has a concrete patio area with shrub borders. Steps lead down through three decked levels which descend to the canal side mooring space. The garden also has a small outhouse with power and light. There is huge potential to create a stunning space here for outdoor living.
