Welcome to The Residence, a luxury apartment development, viewed by many as the best Lancaster has to offer. This award-winning grade II listed building has been converted by the PJ Livesey Group. It's beautiful. It's hi-spec. It has to be seen to truly appreciate its grandeur.
The location on the edge of the city centre is convenient for local transport, as well as having easy access to the University, hospital and the M6. It is approached by a tree lined driveway and is surrounded by greenery with views over the Forest of Bowland. The grounds are perfectly manicured.
Live here and you are neighbouring Williamson Park with its stunning grounds, duck pond and ornamental gardens. If you are feeling energetic, why not join in with the Saturday morning run? The park is also a dog walkers paradise (pets are allowed at The Residence).
The historic city centre is just a 20-minute walk ( or you could jump on the bus ). Enjoy independent shopping, visit one of the many cafes, bars and restaurants or visit one of the two highly regarded theatres. For more every day needs the recently opened Co-op is a just a few minutes away.
The grand entrance
Take the South Wing entrance, the one just of Quernmore Road. Beautiful late 1800's style lanterns frame the beautiful arched entrance. Go through the glass entrance door and step into the stunning stylish foyer - it sets the scene of what to expect. You won't have to go far to find your apartment. Turn right, through the door and your apartment is just on the right. ( Your garden apartment also has its own private entrance too )
Step inside into the welcoming hallway. All the rooms are set of this hallway. You'll love the layout with the living space to one end and your sleeping quarters to the other. The hallway has a large walk in airing / cloaks cupboard. Follow us through to the open plan living room.
The open plan living area
Enter the spacious open- plan kitchen living room. Take a moment to admire the tall high ceilings, a characteristic of the era of this magnificent building. Bespoke shutter windows adorn the 3 tall double glazed sash windows. Straight ahead of you is the space to entertain your family and friends in style.
Relax after dinner in the bay fronted living room whilst you admire your own private garden through the floor to ceiling glazed doorway. This is an apartment which is so light and bright. Did we mention it faces due south?
Set just behind the living room is your sleek gloss kitchen. The design is slightly different from many other apartments and in many ways preferable. It has been created to be more open plan allowing the free flow of conversational chatter whilst dinner is cooked. In a kitchen like this - cooking becomes a pleasure. The units are sleek fitted in cashmere gloss, topped with walnut effect units. Appliances are all integral and include a family size fridge freezer, dishwasher, washer/dryer and oven and hob.
The bedrooms and bathrooms
Your master bedroom complete with its own luxury ensuite shower room is located at the end of the hallway. It's a blank canvas, awaiting just you. His and her wardrobes have been built and are set back into the alcove, cleverly maximising the use of space. Enjoy the green outlook from your window looking out into your private garden.
The 2nd bedroom is also a double room with simple, fresh, neutral decor. Close those beautifully bespoke blinds when the time to sleep arises or simply keep open and let the sunshine stream in.
The bathrooms are both sophisticated and lavish. The family bathroom features sophisticated dark wood effect tiles whilst over in your spacious ensuite the taupe stone tiling is softer. Both feature pristine white fittings enhanced shiny chrome fittings.
The private south facing garden
Step out the glazed door from your living area into your fully enclosed private garden. Mature laurel hedging screens you from the surrounding car park and grounds and gives you total privacy. Come the warmer weather you'll be dining alfresco on your stone patio or simply laying back and enjoying the fresh air and surrounding countryside views.
The garden also conveniently has its own gate which leads to the car park. This apartment comes with two private parking spaces, which are conveniently positioned close to the apartment private garden and entrance. Simple pleasures like having your own private entrance makes unloading your shopping a doddle!
