Elgin Street is located in the heart of Moorlands. This is a very popular residential area of Lancaster which is just a few minutes from the vibrant City Centre.
Moorlands itself though is quiet and residential with handy corner shops. Homes in this area are predominately 2 and 3 bedroom terraces that were built circa 1900 and today attract young professionals, couples, families and students. It is a truly vibrant mix! The area is well serviced by regular buses and Lancaster also has a mainline train station which connects Lancaster to London in just 2 hours and 20 minutes.
Close by is the University of Cumbria, Williamson's Park which offers 52 acres of green space. You are just a short stroll from Lancaster Canal which provides pleasing walks. Excellent local schools, popular churches and the Gregson Community Centre are also in the vicinity.
Open the traditional front door, take note of the inset glass panel - inspired by Rennie Macintosh and a nod back to the era of this home. Step through into the hallway and take note of those original features. The female face corbels smile down at you, welcoming you home.
Stairs ahead lead up to the first floor. For now though, we will turn right and discover the ground floor living areas.
The ground floor living rooms
Immaculately presented, the open plan living area has been designed to flow. Stylish oak effect flooring connects the two areas, creating a seamless finish. The crisp, contemporary decor brings the rooms together. Predominantly white, deep blue enhanced chimney breasts add a pop of vibrant colour. This is a spacious living room where you can comfortably relax around the living flame gas fire yet still have the space to invite friends around for dinner.
From the dining room, step down into the stylish white hi-gloss kitchen which is complemented by walnut effect work surfaces and flooring. The contemporary design will appeal to many. A double oven, hob and extractor fan are integral. There is dedicated space for a tall, family size fridge freezer.
The first floor bedrooms and bathroom
Take the stairs to the first-floor landing.
The master bedroom spans the front of the home. It is a peaceful feeling room, perfect for a restful night's sleep. It is also spacious, large enough to easily take a king size bed and also have a range of his and her wardrobes along one wall.
The 2nd bedroom is also a double bedroom - ideal as a guest room or even a spacious work from home office. Take a moment to admire the views from here - you can check the time on the town hall clock and you have perfect castle views. In the distance are the Lakeland hills.
The family bathroom features a 4-piece suite in white. It is a spacious bathroom and beautifully tiled in Emerald Green. The mixer shower is operated off the gas combination boiler.
The west facing patio garden
The rear patio garden faces west, enjoying sunshine in the afternoon and early evening in the summer. Neatly paved, you'll be wanting to dine alfresco as the summer approaches or simply enjoy evenings around a warming fire pit as the sun sets.
This enclosed courtyard also has a useful outhouse for storage and an outdoor tap.
