Skerton is a region in the north part of Lancaster City. It was formerly a township, but in the late 1800s it was incorporated into Lancaster and the neighbouring townships. The area has much to offer with both local Primary and Secondary schools close by, handy amenities and a public park, all within walking distance. Gardner Road is a small quiet street set up of similar styled houses and has one road in and out, which means you only really go on here if you live here or are visiting. Also not far away there is the River Lune, which offers countryside walks in one direction or a footpath will lead you into the City centre in the opposite direction.
A little bit about the home
This home is set over two floors. The first floor offers open plan lounge/dining area , the kitchen and the family bathroom. The first floor offers two double bedrooms. The home is a blank canvass with magnolia walls and carpets throughout so it is ready for the potential viewer to make it "their own".
The first floor
Upon entering the home you will find yourself in the living room where by adding a sofa and other bits of furniture , this would make a fabulous comfortable family room. There is an electric fire at present but why not add a wood burner and really cozy up on those cold winter nights. The wooden floor makes for low maintenance and cleaning. The next room you enter is the kitchen where fitted units in white feature with room for a washing machine and fridge freezer. The worktops are grey and the floor is terracotta tile. You could fit a little table and chairs under the stairs if you wish to dine in this kitchen. The back of the property is where the bathroom is and the suite is in white with tiling almost floor to ceiling and again anti slip flooring. Access to the back yard can be accessed here also.
The second floor
The second floor is where the two bedrooms are found along with the boiler . The first bedroom is your main bedroom at the front of the home which is a double and carpeted with beige carpet and magnolia walls. The second bedroom is a double or a generous single to the back of the property. The combination boiler is discreetly tucked away in the cupboard in this room. The flooring is again beige and the walls are magnolia to follow the flow of the rest of the home.
The outside yard
You don't get an awful lot of space to the rear with these properties , however you can make it look homely and inviting by adding some seasonal pots and plants and even some fairy or solar lights?
