Welcome to Cork Road. A popular residential street in Bowerham just a few minutes stroll from the University of Cumbria and close to Williamson Park. No 4 Cork Road is at the top of the street. It's on the corner where Cork Road meets Ulster Road.
A short stroll takes you to the leisure park where you'll discover a great farm shop. Walk into Bowerham centre and there is a parade of shops, a popular pub and a great fish and chip shop. Some of the areas top schools are close by.
The city centre is just a few minutes drive. The University of Lancaster and Hospital, both key employers are both under 1.5 miles.
Welcome to Cork Road. This very large terrace home is in such a great location and has been well presented inside to create a real homely feel throughout. The main entrance opens into into the hallway which has the stairs directly in front of you and access to both the reception rooms can also be gained.
The ground floor
We just love the presentation and decoration in the main living room. Not to mention the fact there are two windows to both the front and side of the home which helps to give the room a lovely, bright feel. The soaring ceilings, complete with the original coving and picture rails also gives the room a really spacious feel.
The second reception room has been used to dine, however is actually large enough to use as both a dining space and a further seating area, making this a perfect space to entertain your family and friends. The room once again has the high ceiling which gives character to the room and just like the living room there are two double glazed windows which the room offers. We like how the wood effect flooring continues seamlessly through to the kitchen which helps to give this space some continuity which flows perfectly. The dining area also offers a cupboard which goes underneath the staircase to store away your coats and shoes etc.
We like how much storage the kitchen has to offer with its modern range of fitted cabinetry. There is also plenty of work space for those who enjoy cooking at home along with space for all the white goods which we would all expect to have. A fitted extractor fan is just above where you could fit a gas stove and the splash backs have been tiled to complement. From the stainless steel sink area there is a double glazed window which looks into the rear yard. There is also a rear exit door which leads you to the outside space.
The first floor
As you reach the top of the stairs, the landing area is L-Shaped and allows not only access to all the rooms available on this level but has a rather unique bonus. The landing has its very own utility space which actually frees up extra space in the kitchen below and keeps the all of the dirty laundry out of the way.
The master bedroom is situated on the first floor and this room has a real sense of space and light. The tasteful, neutral tones continue and there is a double glazed window to the side elevation which provides a pleasing outlook towards the hills of Clougha. This vast, double bedroom is certainly large enough to accommodate all the furnishings you will need.
The second bedroom on this level is to the far end of the hallway and has been used as a child's room and looks out over the front of the property. This room is a well proportioned single room which could easily accommodate a three quarter bed if you so wish.
Also on the first floor there is not only a bathroom, but also a shower room, making this ideal for a large family home. The family bathroom has been fitted with a three piece suite in white which has been partially tiled and offers a shower over the bath. Built in storage is available underneath the contemporary designed hand wash basin. On top of this the shower room also offers its very own three piece suite.
The second floor
On the top floor there are two doors on the landing area which lead to a further two bedrooms with the larger of the two on your left hand side.
The larger bedroom on the second floor is a simply brilliant sized space which, like the bedroom below, offers a lovely aspect looking out towards the hills Clougha. We think that this would make the ideal room for a teenager or could potentially be used as a great sized room for when your guests come over to stay.
The fourth bedroom this home has to offer is currently used as a home office and spare room. This L-Shaped room has a window to the front elevation of the home and could be used as a spare room if you need all four bedrooms.
Outside the home
With this home being positioned on a corner plot there is a small lawned garden area to both the front and side of the property. The residents at the moment have chosen to add a small bench to this area which will enjoy sunshine for the majority of the day.
To the rear there is a concrete yard area with space for a shed which could be used for off road parking if you so wish. This area has walled boundaries and has enough space to add a table and chairs or maybe even enjoy a BBQ during the summer months.
For those of you who enjoy a larger space outdoors, you have 52 acres at Williamsons Park literally around the corner.
