Ashton Drive is a popular residential road with a range of homeowners from first time buyers, families through to residents that have lived in the same home for the majority of their lives. The present owner has lived here for 41 years...This alone speaks volumes for the area.
Lancaster city centre is within walking distance of around 20 minutes or a short drive away being around 10 minutes. Local primary and secondary schools can be found within a short walk away too.
Easy access to the M6 in around 6-7 minutes means for those who commute this will be a great bonus to the location!
Just off the street is the main bus route taking you to both north and south of the river. For those who enjoy walks, the canal is also nearby with a few watering holes to quench your thirst on the way.
As you enter the spacious hallway, you will find ahead of you the stairs leading off to the first floor, as well as the living room and kitchen/diner. The three bedrooms, bathroom and access to the converted loft space are located on the first floor. Access to the loft space is via a fixed ladder but please note there are no building regulations for this space.
The ground floor living areas
Come on in, the hallway is spacious, bright and inviting. Kick off those shoes and put your slippers on before heading to the kitchen to flick the kettle on. There is space for you to place a side unit for a lamp and some family photographs and of course, hang up those coats.
The living room is a great size with a bay fronted window. A gas fire sits as a focal point to the room and a soft patterned carpet adds detail to the room.
The kitchen diner has lots of storage which is a huge plus with this home. The fitted units are eye-catching and a great place to store those crystal glasses and ornaments. Two windows allow light to enter and bounce around the room with a stable door accessing the rear garden.
There is space for a hob and a washing machine. The fridge and dishwasher are integrated.
A dining table fits nicely in front of the window where you can enjoy your evening meal with the family.
The first floor
Come upstairs where you will be pleased to see two great sized double bedrooms and a single bedroom along with the family bathroom.
The first double is situated at the front of the home and has a lovely bay window. The current owner has a wardrobe along one wall and the bed and bedside units on the opposite wall. The room is spacious enough to allow for this furniture. Walls are neutral and the flooring is a wooden effect laminate.
Bedroom two at the rear and overlooking the garden is also a spacious double with fitted units built around the bedhead. You will not struggle to find room for all those clothes here! Again the walls are neutral and there is a pale blue carpet underfoot. The combination boiler is located here in a cupboard next to the window.
The third bedroom is a single to the front of the home and has space for storage over the stairs. The current owners have used this space well and hidden it with a curtain pulled across. You could place some rails and shelving up here .Go on have a look!
I mentioned there is loft space also here on the first floor and a fixed staircase. Although the room has previously been used for family members please do note that there are no building regulations for this room.
The gardens, driveway and garage
There is off street parking for your car on the driveway and an area which could be brightened up with pots, plants and even a bench?
The rear of the home has access to the garage. A patio area under the dining room window is an ideal spot to have your summer table and chairs out and dine in the evening sun...I am sure you can squeeze a BBQ in here too!
The garden is in two halves, the first section is filled with plants and small bushes whilst the second half is a vegetable plot where the current owners grow their own veg. What a great idea and I am sure the kids would love that!
