Barton Road is one of the most sought after roads to live on in the Scotforth area of Lancaster. These homes range from semi detached family homes through to larger and more substantial detached residencies.
The area of Scotforth is popular for many reasons thanks to the local amenities which includes a Booths supermarket. There is a florist, a fish and chip shop and garage also all within walking distance.
Just a short stroll away there are open playing fields where children can play and dog owners can go for walks. Easy access to the University and the M6 Motorway can also be gained whilst the city centre is approximately 2 miles away.
Ground floor rooms
The main entrance to the front of this detached home opens up into the vestibule. We think this is a great space to store your coats and shoes before you step through to the hallway. The hall has been decorated in a neutral fashion and has access to all three reception rooms along with stairs which lead you up to the first floor.
The main living room is a wonderful size space where all the family can sit down and relax after a long hard day. This room has a bright and airy feel thanks to the two windows which give the room a dual aspect to the front and side of the home. There is a gas fire to the centre of the room which gives a cosy, warm glow in the evenings.
The second reception room to the front of the home has been used as a work room/study by the current owners over the years however could make an ideal second sitting room. Once again there is a gas fire to the centre of the room and two windows to the front and side of the home.
This home is rather special as there is a third reception room which is currently used as a dining room allowing you the opportunity to enjoy sit down meals together in the evening to catch up on each others day. This room looks into the garden at the rear of the home and offers two large built in storage cupboards.
Just off the dining room is the kitchen which has been fitted with a great range of built in base, drawer and wall units. There is room for all the white goods which you would expect to have and from the sink area you can look out into the rear garden. To the side elevation there is a further window along with a door which opens out onto the driveway.
First floor rooms
Once you are up to the first floor landing there is great sized built in airing cupboard which is ideal to store your towels and bedding. Access to the loft which has been insulated can be gained and there are doors to all the rooms on offer.
To the front of the home is the master bedroom which is a wonderful double sized room with a great sized window helping to give this space a bright and airy feel and there is a hand wash basin also. The decoration has been finished in a neutral fashion, so any style of furniture you have should fit straight in. The second double bedroom looks out over the side of the home and this too could easily be used as the master if needed as it is such a brilliant sized room.
A further double room has a pleasing aspect looking out over the garden to the rear of the home which also features a hand wash basin, whilst the fourth bedroom is once again to the front of the home and is a generous sized single room or home office depending on your needs.
The first floor also has a three piece shower room which has a walk in cubicle and the shower is powered straight from the boiler. This space has been completely tiled and there is a decorative border to complement. On top of this there is a further separate wc which will always come in handy if you have a family or even for when guests are visiting.
To the front of the home there is a well maintained lawned garden area with a mature hedge and rose bushes on show. Gated access opens onto the path which leads up to the main entrance.
There is a further gate which opens onto the long driveway which provides ample off road parking which leads down the side of the home towards the detached single garage which has an up and over door. The garage also has both power and light.
Once you are round to the rear of the garden there is a private lawned garden area with a mature hedge to the rear and side. A timber shed is available for storage. There is also an extra space behind the garage which is tucked away and would make the perfect space to add a small storage shed if needed.
