Welcome to Lindow Square, one of Lancaster's most prestigious addresses. This stunning city centre home enjoys a privileged location.
Live here and you can walk in to the city centre and enjoy the vibrant cultural mix that living in a University city offers. Why not stop and enjoy a coffee at Atkinson's Coffee shop, dinner at The Borough or take a stroll around the city and enjoy one of the many museums? Take an afternoon stroll along the canal, enjoying a drink at one of the canal's wine bars or grab your bicycle and cycle into the countryside.
Lancaster train station is just a 5 minute walk connecting Lancaster to London in just over 2 hours. Families will also be pleased to know that many of the area's top schools are in the catchment area including Dallas Road Primary School and both the Boys and Girls Grammar Schools.
The ground floor
Open the wrought iron gate and stop to smell the roses. Enter through the pastel blue traditional solid wooden door and step through the entrance vestibule into the beautiful traditional hallway. The first thing you will notice is the beautiful honey tones of the original solid wooden flooring and the stairs which have been lovingly stripped back. This flows throughout the home creating a feeling of warmth.
Turn left into the main living area. Admire the high ceiling with its ornate cornicing. The design of the room is minimalist yet still cosy, thanks to the clear view multi fuel stove which is set back into the chimney breast set on a Lakeland slate hearth. Cupboards and open shelves fill the alcoves displaying books, photographs and artwork. The lounge to the front is perfect for relaxing, whilst the dedicated dining area steps down to the stylish well-equipped kitchen.
The first floor
Come with us, taking the original staircase up to the first-floor landing. Three of the home bedrooms are on this floor along with an additional useful WC ( the main family bathroom is on the upper floor).
The impressively spacious and handsome, master bedroom spans the front home. It has characterful quirks with its dual aspect sash windows and original period fireplace. Pause, look out of the window and admire the outlook with views down the street. Sunshine floods this room with light.
Two more and inviting bedrooms complete this floor. Both are well-proportioned bedrooms featuring beautiful flooring and crisp white decor. The 2nd bedroom also has a traditional, ornamental fireplace.
The 2nd floor
The 2nd-floor hosts the fourth bedroom - a room always commented on by friends and family for its peaceful feeling. Used as a guest room and also somewhere to quietly read, this room is the perfect place to simply gaze at the constellations as you drift off to sleep. Floor to ceiling built in wardrobes provide ample storage whilst the eaves storage is ideal to hide away the Christmas boxes.
The family bathroom is located to the rear. The Dutch influence can still be felt with this crisp white suite with its straight lines. The modern brick tiles are a nod to the Victorian era.
The large cellar still features the original cobbled floor. The headroom is ample. What will you do down here? Create a further room? Use it as a workshop or perhaps it could make a superb cellar room. It's an area of the home which is full of possibilities or could be simply used as is.
Outside the home
Sit tucked away in your front garden, secluded by the private hedge to the front. It's something the owners enjoy to do on a warm summer afternoon. Alternatively why not enjoy alfresco dining in your rear courtyard whilst enjoying the evening sunshine? Flowering jasmine and deeply planted borders afford this courtyard privacy. The planting scheme has been designed to give all year-round interest.
