What we like
There's something special about Belle Vue Terrace. You feel it the moment you step on the terrace. Tucked away off the main A6, it feels somehow serene away from the hustle and bustle. These homes have a feeling of grandeur with their high ceilings, original cornicing and original wooden floors. These homes though also have garages and gardens. They really are a perfect family home.
About this home
Belle Vue Terrace is a fine example of a Georgian Terrace home and is believed to date back to approximately 1840. It's a spacious family home, one with characteristic high ceilings, many original features and 4 bedrooms - all of which are double bedrooms.
This is a home which is set over 3 floors. With two reception rooms ( they have been made open to create a social space for family living ) and a stylish kitchen you can casually dine in, you'll find a home with a large cellar, useful garage and generous size garden.
Belle Vue Terrace is a sought after location. Could this be your next home?
The ground floor
The main entrance of the home opens up into the hallway which has access into both reception rooms and the stairs up to the first floor are straight ahead of you.
The main living room is to the front of the home and this is a generous sized space which all the family can enjoy. The chimney breast has exposed stonework which is a real feature and the floorboards have been exposed. The lounge is actually open plan to the dining room which creates a spacious feel and helps to make both rooms nice and bright. Buyers will no doubt like the space the dining room offers and we feel it will be the perfect space for all the family to sit down and enjoy their evening meals together.
The dining room offers direct access through to the kitchen which is a brilliant sized room offering plenty of built in storage for all your bits and pieces in the solid wooden cabinets. There is ample worktops for those who love to cook and there is space for all the white goods which you will require. The kitchen also offers a breakfast bar facility with tiled splash backs which complements the flooring which has been laid. Access to the outside space can be gained from the far end of the kitchen and there are three double glazed windows in total in this part of the home.
The upper floors
Once you are up to the first floor you will find that the master bedroom is to the front of the home. This generous size double room is a wonderful size and has been decorated in soft, neutral tones which complements the stripped floorboards which are on show to add a little character. The second bedroom looks out over the rear of the home and would also be large enough to accommodate a double bed if required. This would make a perfect children's room or maybe even a guest room.
The bathroom has been fitted with a three piece suite in white which offers a shower above the bath to give you the best of both worlds. The majority of the room has been tiled and there are two frosted double glazed windows.
Once you are up to the top floor you will discover two further bedrooms which once again could accommodate double beds if needed. These are both currently used as children's rooms with one to the front of the home and one to the rear. The room to the front of the home offers elevated views over Lancaster and out towards the Lakes in the distance.
Once you are down to the cellar you will see that this is a great storage area. This space offers both power and light and also houses the meters for the home.
The gardens and garage
To the front of the home there is lawned garden area with planted borders and a mature hedge which offers privacy from the roadside. A stone paved pathway leads you up to the main entrance and there is a step up to the front door.
Once you are round to the rear of the property you will find that there is an enclosed yard area with a lockable gate. This then leads you onto the communal driveway to at the rear which provides access to the detached garage which has an up and over door which is large enough to accommodate a car or would be ideal for storage. Steps then lead you up the side of the garage to the main garden area.
The garden is a generous size with a lawned area and a patio seating space which offers a timber storage shed for all your gardening bits and pieces. There are fences which provide privacy from the neighbouring homes and the garden will be able to be enjoyed all year round.
