Welcome to Greaves Road, a sought after residential address located just a few minutes south of the city centre. Greaves Road is in demand. These period homes which were once home to Lancaster's hierarchy and believed to be the home of a doctor and are highly sought after. Greaves Park is just across the road which gives a pleasing, green outlook to this home.
What is in the area?
This home also has an excellent position for easy access into the city centre. Lancaster's key employers are close by - namely the hospital which is within walking distance and two universities. There are excellent local amenities within a short walk including a convenience store, bakery, wine shop and beauticians. Some of the cities most sought after schools are within the catchment area. For those who wish to commute, the train station is just 5 minutes by car. Junction 33 of the M6 is under 3 miles.
The ground floor
Come with us, and follow the curve of the garden path. Enter through the original solid wooden door and step through the entrance vestibule and into the spacious hallway. Pause and admire the beautiful staircase and admire the ornate original plaster work. This home may need updating, however, many originals features are still in place.
Turn left into the bay fronted lounge. The ceilings are high and the skirting boards are deep. The original cornicing is in tact - all period characteristics from the era of this home. Next is the dining room - a place to formal dine although given the fact there is the breakfast kitchen room - you might prefer to have this room has a 2nd sitting room. Once again original features are all in place.
The functional kitchen has so much potential. This is an area you'll really want to transform. It has a great view over the west facing garden.
The upper floors
Take the stairs up to the half landing, bathroom and separate W/C . Guests always comment on the stunning mouldings and question the twin doors. Where do they lead?
The first floor plays host to two bedrooms. The master bedroom spans the front of the home whilst the 2nd bedroom looks out over the garden. The two doors? One leads through to the family bathroom, the other to the additional wc.
Take the door on the landing area and head up to the 2nd floor. There are two further double bedrooms. Could this be an ideal floor families with children?
The cellar rooms
This home has two large cellars rooms. There is the potential to create two further rooms down here such is the head height. Alternatively it makes for excellent storage.
A key feature to Greaves Road is the beautiful established garden. Facing west it is not over looked. It really is a sun kissed garden perfect for Summer entertaining. Why not dine alfresco on the paved patio?
Off Street Parking
Greaves Road has private off street parking to the rear. The owner used to have a garage - there is certainly space to rebuild one should that be a wish of yours. Residents permit parking is also available to the front of the home.
