D’Urton Heights offers you a collection of well-designed three, four and five-bedroom homes in the small Lancashire village of Broughton just north of the city of Preston.
Broughton is a great location if you work in Preston, and with a local pre-school, primary school, secondary school, and a Co-op for your day-to-day shopping, a new home here is a good choice for family life too. There’s a superstore in Fulwood on the outskirts of Preston, and it only takes about 20 minutes to drive into the city centre for all the usual high street stores.
As well as all that the city offers, you’ll have the open space of the Forest of Bowland Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and the beautiful Ribble Valley, the lively attractions of Blackpool’s seafront and the quieter beaches of Lytham St Annes, all within easy reach for easy day trips from home.
With revitalised docks and a marina on the River Ribble, and fantastic city centre shopping, the thriving city of Preston has plenty to see and do. In addition to the Preston Guild Wheel, a 21-mile cycle path that circles the city, there's a good choice of walking routes in the Ribble Valley. You'll have easy access to the Cockshott, Holland and Mosney woods, the Brockholes wetland and woodland nature reserve, and slightly further afield, the Yarrow Valley Country Park in Chorley.
Residents of D'Urton Heights can take advantage of the excellent range of local schooling nearby, including the Ofsted 'Outstanding' Broughton-in-Amounderness CE Primary School, Broughton High School, and St Mary's and St Andrew's Catholic Primary School. Preston College for further education is in Fulwood, the suburb of Preston nearest to Broughton.
The city boasts great shopping facilities, with its selection of high street names, bustling Victorian arcades, outdoor markets selling fresh produce and speciality shops in quaint, traditional streets. Taking a break from shopping? Why not enjoy lunch at one of the many eateries and pubs available at Preston's popular waterfront.
