Fulwood is a large and popular suburb of Preston. It’s under 2 miles, due south, to the city centre along the A6 and property there is always in demand. Fulwood is one of many areas Dewhurst Homes has excellent knowledge of.
It’s a desirable location in its own right and has property for sale for every budget – 1 bedroom flats can be purchased for under £100,000 whilst executive homes easily exceed £1 million, meaning it is one of the most expensive parts of Preston. This is partly due to its proximity to Preston, as well as easy motorway access to the M6 and M55.
Fulwood feels like one of the greener parts of the Preston area, however it is nevertheless a fairly built up area, with buildings dating back to the Victorian gentrification of the region, and earlier.
Due to large investments during the late Victorian era, Fulwood was an area of much development by wealthy Preston industrialists. Some of the finest Victorian buildings of Lancashire can be found in Fulwood, such as the Fulwood Barracks, Fulwood Union Workhouse, and Harris Orphanage.
Many of the larger houses in Fulwood were also built during the Victorian period, particularly those in the Nooklands cul-de-sac.
Great for families
If you’re looking for a place to settle with children, Fulwood is excellent with a choice of ten primary schools and four high schools. There’s also preparatory and independent schools to be found in Fulwood.
