Welcome to South Road, the gateway to the city, a street lined with fine beautiful period homes. Many are still large family homes, a few - like this have been separated into character apartments.
A key feature of this home is that the city centre is just a short stroll. Lancaster Canal can be joined in just 300 yards providing pleasing walks into the countryside. Two of Lancaster's key employers are close by, both Lancaster Royal Infirmary and the University of Cumbria are within walking distance.
For those who commute, the train station is close by, you can be in Manchester under 1 hour and London in just 2.5 hours. Access to the M6 is relatively easy with both Junctions 33 and 34 under 3 miles away.
Enter into the apartment
South Road has a choice of entrances. If you are coming home from a day out in the city or a stroll on the canal, you might prefer to use the front entrance from the main road. If you arrive home in your car, park at the rear in your private space, and use your rear door into the apartment.
