Welcome to Slyne Road. The area comprises mainly of Victorian homes but recently more modern developments have been built in the area.
There are excellent local amenities close by that include a local Spar convenience store, a doctor's surgery, a dentist and also a chemist. There are also a couple of primary school close by and a High School not too far away making this area ideal for families.
The area is well serviced by public transport with the main A6 offering regular bus links into the city of Lancaster or out to the Lakes District. For those who need to commute there is also very easy access to the recent addition of the motorway link road just a short drive away.
Such space on the ground floor
The main entrance to the front of the home opens into the hallway which has retained the original mosaic tiled flooring as your first step foot inside. You immediately sense that this home will offer plenty of space thanks to the high ceilings and original Victorian features.
We love the space the main living room offers with its bay window to the front of the home. This well proportioned room will be the perfect space to relax after a long hard day and there is currently a gas fire to the centre of the room. Some buyers may choose to open the fireplace up back to how it would have been originally. With a bit of imagination you could maybe picture yourself in front of an open fire in the evenings with the rest of the family.
The dining room is totally separate from the living room and this space also has a fireplace to the centre of the room. The dining room will enjoy the morning sunshine which enters through the double opening doors, leading you into the garden at the rear of the home. This room really does create a wonderful space to enjoy sit down meals together in the evening or maybe for those who love to entertain then this is the perfect space to do so.
The kitchen is a well proportioned room offering a flexible space to change the layout to however you desire. There is currently fitted units to two sides of the room with further space available for a dining area. The kitchen currently has a feature fireplace as you first enter the room on your right hand side complete with a gas fire. This could easily be changed into a space where you could maybe add a range style cooker complete with an extractor fan built into the chimney breast with a little bit of planning.
Just off the kitchen to the far end of the ground floor is the extension which has been used as a utility area and downstairs wc. This space is light filled thanks to the Velux and the window to the rear and there is a glazed timber door which opens into the outside garden at the rear of the home.
Great cellar for storage
The cellar can be accessed from the hallway and the stone steps lead you underneath the front of the home. The cellar is below both the hallway and the living room and we think that this is a brilliant area for storage. To the centre of the main room there is the original stone slab raised up from the floor and the meters for the home can also be found here. What was once the old ''coal hole'' is a further storage area now.
Up on the first floor
As you reach the top of the stairs the landing area has access to all the rooms with the largest of the bedrooms overlooking the front of the home.
The master bedroom is a simply fantastic sized double room which is the largest room in the house. There are currently a range of built in wardrobes along one wall which provides plenty of storage. The master bedroom has soaring ceilings which is a continuing theme throughout the first floor rooms which helps to create a really bright and airy feel.
Both the second and third bedrooms are also large enough to accommodate double beds and both enjoy a view, overlooking the rear garden. The second bedroom is in the middle of the home whilst the third bedroom is to the far end of the first floor. The third bedroom is also the one which hides away the boiler inside the wardrobes which have been fitted with sliding doors.
The landing area also has further access into both the bathroom and the wc which has been kept separate. This would be the ideal chance when updating the bathroom to create one large bathroom area by knocking the two rooms into one. Currently the two piece bathroom has been partially tiled and there is a shower above the bath to give you the best of both worlds. Both the bathroom and the wc also have frosted double glazed windows to the side elevation.
A terrace with front & rear gardens
The garden to the front of the property which is a low maintenance area with a flagged patio and planted borders to add a little extra colour and kerb appeal. Steps lead you up to the main entrance.
Once you are round to the rear, this private and secluded area will enjoy sunshine for the majority of the day and is over two different levels. Just like the front, this space has been kept nice and simple with flagged areas allowing space for planted pots during the summer months to create that bit of colour which we all enjoy.
