Where is Locka Lane
Locka Lane is situated just off Slyne road in the North of Lancaster on a quiet cul-de-sac location. The homes here are a mixture of three storey houses like this one, flats and bungalows further down into the cul-de-sac.
The road is very private and you get no through traffic so it is very safe for those who have young families.

The ground floor living space
As you step into this home through the vestibule, take a moment to look at the beautiful original flooring. Homes in this area and of this period feature this flooring,it is always a selling point! The flooring is engineered oak throughout the hallway and the lounge diner. The stairs lead you to the first and second floors and the door to the left takes you into the remaining rooms on the ground floor.
The living room is open plan to the dining room and is a great space for the whole family to sit, relax, play games , eat and enjoy together. A wood burning stove is the focal point to this room and was installed around ten years ago with all the relevant certification.
The windows are large and allow ample light to enter and fill the room. The decor is neutral with a feature wall decorated over the chimney breast.
The dining room leads off this room and currently has a table and chairs where the family sit and dine together. The chimney breast is exposed here creating a lovely feature that instantly draws your eyes as you come into the room.
The neutral decor flows through into this room and then on to the final room which is the kitchen on this floor. Cream units greet you with a gas hob, electric oven and a cooker hood all in brushed metal. An under counter fridge, freezer and dishwasher are found here.There is plenty of storage space and cream splash back tiling to compliment with lemon painted walls.
Access to the back garden and cellar are found here also.
The first floor living space
Come with me up to the first floor where the master bedroom, the family bathroom and the second bedroom are found. The bathroom is a really great size and offers a bath with a seperate standing shower unit, sink and w/c. The walls are tiled half way and act as splash backs complemented by teracotta style flooring. A large unit features in this room also.
The next room we come to is the single bedroom or as the current owner is using as an office. Fitted shelves are hung on the wall and the decor is white with a window for ventilation and light complemented by wood effect flooring.
The master bedroom with an en-suite is the final room on this floor and here the room is very spacious with wood effect flooring, a feature wall across the chimney breast , a large window for light and ventilation and plenty of room for two or three items of bedroom furniture. The en-suite is fabulous and is a great asset to the home. It offers a walk in shower, sink and toilet with tiling half way up the walls. you will also notice beautiful cornicing and coving. This is most definitely a room to relax in.
The second floor living space
The second floor is where the current owners have created three bedrooms out of the original two. They are all a good size and the two front bedrooms have velux windows so lots of light can enter here and you can star gaze at night. The three bedrooms are all being used as singles, however the two front rooms would accommodate double beds if needed. The bedroom at the back is a single and has a rectangular window for light and ventilation. The decor has been kept neutral in these three bedrooms and all carpeted in a neutral beige shade ready for the new buyer to just move in. The top floor is fully insulated.
The garden, cellar and storage
The garden is a lovely size for the family to enjoy, sit out, eat,drink and relax. Partly paved with paving slabs and partly grassed it is the perfect combination giving space to dine al-fresco and an area for the children to play.There is an outhouse attached to the back of the kitchen where the washing machine and tumble dryer are currently stored . There is also room for other gardening items and tools along with power, light and water feed coming into the outhouse.
You will notice a patch where the current owners have had a vegetable patch. If you like to grow your own vegetables then this is a perfect space separated from the garden where mum and dad can have their own space and chill out time.
