Once voted the third best place to bring up children in the UK, Galgate is a popular semi-rural village that is located approximately 4 miles south of the city centre and only a short drive away from Lancaster University.
The area offers a diverse range of properties from Victorian mill worker cottages through to modern family homes. There are excellent local amenities including 2 village pubs, a vintage tea shop, Spar shop, hairdressers and post office to name but a few.
There is a village hall which regularly features a farmers market and craft stalls as well as various events and social gatherings suiting both the young and old. Jct 33 of the M6 is close by, making this area very handy for commuters. The canal that runs past the village offers pleasing country walks.
Ground floor rooms
The main entrance opens up into a well appointed hallway which has access into the living room and also offers the stairs up to the bedrooms and bathroom.
We love the space the lounge offers which is delightfully private and immaculately presented. The large double glazed window allows in plenty of natural light and the decoration has been tastefully chosen. To the centre of the room there is a raised gas fire inset which has a coal effect setting with further heat provided from the radiator under the window.
The impeccably styled kitchen has been fitted with sleek and contemporary units which combine built in storage along with fitted appliances. The tasteful lighting also adds to the modern feel you get as soon as you step foot inside this space. The kitchen also has ample space to add in your own dining table so you and the family can all sit down and enjoy your evening meals together.
Just off the dining area is the conservatory which has been upgraded by the owners relatively recently and comes complete with a glass roof. The conservatory has a side exit door which opens onto the undercover car port whilst there are further sliding patio doors which lead you into the rear garden. This will be the perfect space to sit and relax during the day with your favourite novel or simply enjoy looking into the beautiful garden.
Up on the first floor
The first floor landing has access up to the loft space from a fixed space saver staircase and there are doors opening to all the rooms available on this floor.
The master bedroom is now the full width of the home thanks to the owners making the main bedroom and the third bedroom into one large space. This large bedroom features has ample space for large wardrobes to be added. There are two sets of double gazed windows which overlook the front of the home giving the room a very bright and airy feel. The decoration has been tastefully finished creating a soft and calming feel, ideal to relax in the evenings.
The second bedroom on this level is again large enough to accommodate a double bed if required and this room overlooks the garden at the rear of the property. This room has again been well presented and there is a feature wall to add a little extra colour.
We like the fact that the bathroom has been fully tiled to keep nice and easy to maintain. There is a three piece suite in white with a P-Shaped bath offering a shower above to give you the best of both worlds. A frosted double glazed window allows in plenty of light from the rear elevation.
Beautifully presented gardens
To the front of the home there is a very well maintained garden area which has been made into a double driveway creating plenty of space to park off road. There is a raised, planted border with walled boundaries and double opening wrought iron gates open to the side of the home where the undercover car port area is. This space has Indian flag stones and two wall lights along with access to a storage facility which is currently doubled up as a home gym.
Once you are round to the rear of the home, this private and tranquil garden has been made into a lovely low maintenance area you can enjoy all year round. This is a great space which will attract an abundance of wildlife thanks to the mature greenery and the pond also. The rear garden also has a simply fantastic summerhouse which comes complete with its own power supply. This really is a great space to entertain your guests in the summer months and is a great addition to this already beautiful home.
