Welcome to Kelsey Street, a sought after tucked away road located just a short stroll off the city centre and train station. This is a friendly neighbourhood. Many of the neighbours are families with children of varying ages which all enjoy the sense of community that living in this area of Lancaster gives.
One of the regions most in-demand primary schools is close by. Every amenity you could possibly want is close by including the Fairfield Association's play area, community orchard and nature reserve. Fairfield has the feel of living in a village.
Live here and you'll be living in one of the greenest areas of our city. You'll also be pleased to know a resident parking scheme is in operation.
From entering the home from the front door into the spacious hallway, Kelsey Street is a home with an abundance of original features. In only a few steps buyers will see a beautiful mosaic tiled floor, stripped original wooden flooring and original Victorian doors. Stairs naturally lead to the upper floors, whilst the stripped wooden flooring leads you through to the sitting room ( all ground floor rooms are accessed from the hall )
The living areas
The character leads through to the bay fronted lounge where an original Victorian fireplace stands proud. You can't beat the warmth and glow of a real working fire, especially in these chilly winter months. Laura Ashley wallpaper adorns the walls. Look up and the original picture rails and cornicing are all still feature.
The 2nd sitting room is beautiful and is the main hub of family life. It's place where the children gather and laughter is enjoyed. It's a place to read and relax. The family practise music here given the fact that the kitchen has the space to dine. There is space for a multi-fuel stove inset into the chimney breast. The sash style window looks out over the rear courtyard.
The dine in kitchen
The spacious dine-in kitchen is fitted with modern, stylish units in white hi-gloss complemented by a dark slate floor and colourful harlequin tiling. Integral appliances include the built in oven, hob and also wine cooler. This kitchen is the heart of the home. It's a place where you can gather around the kitchen table and enjoy meal times together.
Let's go upstairs
Head upstairs and you'll discover 4 bedrooms spread over the two upper floors. The master bedroom is on the first floor and features the large bay window which looks out over the front of the home. It is a peaceful feeling bedroom with soft pastel decor and stripped wooden flooring.
The 2nd bedroom looks out over the rear courtyard, decorated in soft blue and yellow. Along with the 4th bedroom on the upper floor ( the one with the chalkboard ), they make excellent kids bedrooms. The guest room has its own ensuite shower room. It is beautifully tiled (both the walls and floors) and features a stylish Victorian style radiator.
The family bathroom features a 3 -piece suite in white and is tiled in pale sage suiting the character and era of this home.
The rear courtyard
Step outside into your west facing courtyard which has gated access to the rear. This is the ideal place to sit and relax come the warmer months. There is also an access door into the garage.
The garage and permit parking
The garage features an up and over door to the front and access door which leads back into the courtyard. It makes for excellent storage. You won't find many period homes in the area with storage like this home has!
