This fabulous spacious home is meticulously presented and enjoys incredible views to the rear across the Lancaster Canal to Fairfield Nature Reserve. The house is set in a quiet residential road, on the edge of a prestigious suburb of Lancaster, yet it is within easy reach of all the city’s shops, eateries and amenities. The rear gardens are absolutely wonderful, with an extensive area of sweeping lawn stretching down to the canal.
This smart and elegant house has a neat walled frontage, and a attractively planted front garden with a substantial gravelled carriage drive. A large and practical entrance porch gives access to the house as well as internal access to the integral garage with its attached workshop.
The beautifully fitted kitchen breakfast room is at the front of the house. Double doors at the end of the kitchen open into a magnificent garden room with a vaulted ceiling, which makes a fabulous dining and entertaining space with its fantastic views of the garden. To the rear of the house there is a lounge with a living flame fireplace, fabulous views, and double glazed sliding patio doors to the garden. This room also has internal glazed doors connecting it to the garden room. Also to the rear is a separate dining hall from which a staircase rises to the first floor.
To the right of the house is an area which could be suitable for use as an annexe. It incorporates a bedroom, currently used as a sitting room, which has sliding patio doors taking full advantage of the rear views, an en-suite shower room, and to the front, a study with a deep storage cupboard. In this corner of the house there is also a lovely sun room with French doors opening to the rear garden.
On the first floor a galleried landing leads to a master bedroom, with an en-suite shower room. Sliding patio doors open onto a large full width balcony, taking full advantage of the fabulous rear views, a perfect place for your morning coffee or a sundowner in the evening. There are two further bedrooms, both doubles, one to the rear with a door onto the balcony, and one to the front. A modern bathroom at the front of the house, benefiting from both a bath and a separate shower, completes the first floor accommodation.
The back garden is a delight. There is a pleasant terrace across the rear of the house for relaxing or entertaining. To the left is a fruit and vegetable area and a summer house. The lawn slopes down towards the canal, and the garden is skillfully landscaped with mature trees, shrubs, borders and flowerbeds. The local nature reserve opposite does attract some walkers, resulting in a single string of car parking along the lane on the opposite bank of the canal. This can be seen in the photographs, but you will notice that there is sufficient careful planting of shrubs and trees to make this unobtrusive, particularly in the summer, when the garden is almost completely private.
