Welcome to West Street, Greaves - a popular residential street tucked away from the main A6 and one which backs onto the Greaves allotments creating a home which is light, bright and not overlooked. This is a street where homes rarely come available. In fact on this side of the street, only 3 homes have been for sale previously in the past 8 years. It speaks volumes.
Live here and you are in catchment area for some of the areas most highly regarded schools. Scotforth Primary School rates as outstanding. Lancaster City Centre is within walking distance. Many of the areas key employers are close by including the University of Cumbria and the hospital.
The ground floor
Pull up outside West Street - and take the path, through the forecourt garden to your new to be front door. Enter into the light and bright hallway and take note of the traditional 1930's features. This hallway is that little bit larger than many. Wide stairs lead to the first floor. Another staircase takes you down to large basement.
Turn left into the bay fronted lounge. The original 1930's open fire takes centre stage - a pleasing feature to this room and one which you'll really appreciate come the winter months. Book lovers will love the built in shelving which fills one of the alcoves. We are an academic city after all!
Follow us into our favourite room of this home. This fabulous kitchen diner stopped us in our tracks. This kitchen is a superb mix of traditional features and contemporary fittings all done in a style which reflects the true character of the home. Milt grey shaker style cabinets are complemented by smooth grey solid work surfaces. Appliances are all integral creating a streamline finish.
Entertain your friends or gather the family to eat in the dining area. Admire the original built in cupboard and open shelves. French doors open out the south facing garden. This kitchen diner really is the heart of this beautiful home.
The first floor
Let's go upstairs. You'll discover 3 bedrooms - which will you choose as your master? Not many houses have a choice but this home does. Will you take the bedroom to the front with it's original feature fireplace or the spacious double bedroom which feels serene and calm looking out over the garden and allotments?
The third bedroom makes a great child's room although the current family use this as a hobby room
Take a tour downstairs now and into this homes' large basement. Currently used as superb place for storage - think of the options and possibilities this basement has. This is place where you could keep your gym equipment. It's big enough to have a table tennis table.
It's also big enough to convert - cinema room anyone (we've seen it done before!)
The south facing garden
Step out of the french doors and into your own private south facing garden. There's a lawn for relaxing or children to play. Raised beds create a home vegetable garden - 5 a day anyone? Mature trees and shrubs provide dappled sunlight so in the height of the sun you'll be able to find some shade.
