Welcome to 37 Littledale Road. This spacious detached home boasts a tranquil and highly regarded rural location on the edge of the village of Brookhouse. Brookhouse is well connected with the main campus of Lancaster University just 7 miles away by road, the University of Cumbria even closer and Junction 34 of the M6 only a 10 minute drive away. Lancaster Royal Grammar School (Boys) and Lancaster Girl's Grammar School are both within the catchment area of the two well-regarded local primary schools. The village of Brookhouse is home to a local post office/convenience store and a Chinese/fish & chip takeaway. There are several local pubs and churches and, for those seeking an active social life, nearby Caton and Hornby both have many thriving clubs and societies. The unique location of this home also affords excellent opportunities for relatively light-pollution-free dark skies. The current owner is a keen astronomical observer. Meteor showers are regularly seen.
What we say
"37 Littledale Road is a very intriguing home. It is surrounded by greenery and has some fabulous views. The sense of privacy this home affords is superb. Couple this with the tranquil sound of the nearby trickling beck and it is a beautiful place to bring up a family. This is a home which we believe you can add value to. There is so much scope and potential. Ask us for our ideas. We would love to share them with you."
The ground floor
This is a distinctive double-fronted home with the most welcoming and grand-feeling reception hall. Step into the spacious hallway, it's the central hub of this family home. All of the ground floor rooms lead from here.
The generous-sized open-plan lounge-diner is to the right. It's quite apparent why it's the owner’s favourite room. Bright and light, a large picture window looks out to the tree lined street in front of you. Open your windows and you will hear the birds sing. The decor is simple in white, a perfect blank canvas for you and your family.
The dark oak kitchen is where you can really make a difference. It's been well loved over the years. We know you will want to change it. However it's the space it offers that really interests us and its positioning with views over the rear garden. This kitchen has potential. We'd even be tempted to alter the layout and combine the dining area creating a spacious open plan kitchen diner. Remember, this home is all about possibilities.....
Head back to the hallway and on towards the left "wing" of this home where there are two further rooms. Designed originally as bedrooms, the versatile layout ensures you can use them just as you wish. Would you like a spacious home office for days when you work at home? Or would you prefer to have a playroom for the children? These rooms are served by a ground floor bathroom which also makes them perfect for visiting guests.
The first floor
Climb the stairs to the first floor. Peek to the left, there is a spacious attic providing copious amounts of storage. The first floor is interesting. The current layout has two bedrooms including a spacious master room with ensuite. The tranquil views over the wildlife garden are outstanding.
There is also a large landing area with a built in desk. Children could use this as a place to do their homework in peace, away from the distractions of their bedroom.
With its superb rural location on the edge of the village, the garden, set on many levels, is a gardener's and nature lover’s paradise. Two ponds are home to dragonflies, damselflies, colonies of frogs, toads, and 2 species of newts. Two active bird boxes have annual hatchings of blue tits and great tits and the garden is regularly visited by most common garden birds as well as pheasants, wood pigeons and nuthatches, together with squirrels and the occasional deer. Otters and kingfishers have reportedly been sighted on the local stream.
It is also a garden where children can explore and play. Vegetables can be grown, fruit trees and bushes picked. Paved patios and paths take you around this truly wonderful wildlife garden.
