Bowerham is one of Lancaster's most popular residential areas. Located on the South side of the city it attracts a wide range of clientele from the young professionals, growing families and the retired due to its wide range of amenities, shops, schools and churches. There are excellent transport links with regular busses both to the university and the city centre, both of which are only a short drive way. Minutes away are the hospital and University of Cumbria, two of the cities largest employers.
What we like...
We love the fact this home needs updating inside. This gives you as the buyer your chance to get this three bedroom home in such a popular area and then change things to just how you want without having to pay over the odds.
A brief description
The hallway to this home has access to both of the reception rooms on the ground floor. The front living room has been used as a bedroom due to this home being an ex student rental. To the far end of the ground floor is the fitted kitchen which also offers ample space to dine if you so wish. Once you are upstairs you will discover the master bedroom overlooks the front of the home and has built in wardrobes whilst the two other generous sized single rooms look out over the rear. Externally you will find a courtyard style area to the front whilst there is an enclosed yard to the rear. The home is double glazed, offers a gas central heating system and is for sale with no chain.
Ground floor rooms
Step inside this home from the main front entrance and you will firstly find yourself in the hallway. This area is a great space to hang your coats and store your shoes before stepping into the reception rooms. There is also access to the stairs which will lead you up to the first floor.
The front reception room would make an ideal living room however the previous owners have used this as a fourth bedroom as it has been rented to students over the past several years. This room offers a double glazed bay window to the front elevation and there is ample space for the furniture you would expect to have. The room has retained it's original coved ceiling and there is the potential to open up the fire which was once there if you wish.
The second reception room has been used as the main living room however would also work as a formal dining room depending on your needs. A double glazed window looks out into the rear yard and there is also storage which has been built in under the stairs to hide away your bits and pieces. This is a wonderful sized room so you can see why this has been used as the lounge. Just off this room to the far end of the ground floor is where you will find the kitchen,
The fitted kitchen offers a great range of built in storage and there are ample work tops for those who love to cook. As you would expect there is space for all the white goods which we all use on a daily basis and there is a built in electric oven, hob and extractor fan available. Both the splash backs and the floor have been tiled for ease of cleaning and there is enough space for you to add your own dining table making this a great space to enjoy your evening meals. Access to the rear yard can also be gained from the kitchen.
Up to the first floor
Once you are up to the first floor you will see that the landing area has doorways opening to all the rooms available with the first being the master bedroom to your right hand side.
The master room is a generous sized double which offers a range of built in wardrobes and storage for all your clothes and shoes. There is a double glazed window which looks out over the front of the home and the room has been decorated in a neutral fashion to create a bright and airy feel. There are two further bedrooms to the rear of the home which are a similar size to one another. Both these bedrooms are generous sized singles and some buyers may even choose to use one as a great sized study depending on your needs.
Finally inside is the three piece bathroom. Currently you will see there is a white hand wash basin to the centre of the room along with a coloured bath and matching low flush wc. The room has been fully tiled and there is an extractor fan fitted in the ceiling to help clear the steam whilst you relax in the bath or make use of the shower which is above.
The outside space to the front of the home has a small walled courtyard style space with gated access leading to a pathway which will lead you to the main entrance. Once you are round to the rear you will see that there is an enclosed concrete yard with walled boundaries. This would make a great space for a table and chairs where you could sit out and enjoy the afternoon sunshine during the summer months. A timber gate leads out to the rear service lane.
