Welcome to Victoria Avenue, a beautiful period home set on a highly regarded residential street.
This is a home which is just 1 mile south of Lancaster city centre. It's perfectly located for the areas key employers which include the two universities and hospital. It is also in the catchment area of Lancaster's most in-demand schools, both primary and secondary.
Live here and you have excellent local amenities. Within walking distance, there are convenience stores, takeaways, a chemist, bakery and even one of the regions best beauty salons. Greaves Park is just a few minutes walk. You are also on the main bus route into the city centre with buses passing the end of the road every 10 minutes to the University.
Open the wrought iron gate and follow the path to your uPVC double glazed door. Just by glancing at the design of the front garden with its plum slate and crisp white planters, you know this home is going to be special.
Open the entrance door, step through the vestibule and into the hallway. The original Minton tiled floor still features. Stairs ahead lead to the first floor. Turn left and into the spacious living room.
The ground floor living rooms
The bay fronted lounge to the front opens up into the spacious dining room. It's decorated in soft shades of creams which beautifully contrast with the pale grey. The original cornicing still features, a nod to the home's heritage.
The spacious dining room is to the rear. The decor flows from the lounge, perfectly connecting the two rooms. The honey tones of the original wooden floor add warmth to the room. The inglenook stone fireplace has been opened up -it's almost ready for the installation of a wood burning stove. The alcove to the right is large enough to house a piano. Detail like this makes a difference.
The stylish kitchen
The kitchen is ever so stylish and contemporary in its design. Black gloss units are teamed with solid wooden work surfaces. Chunky brass coloured handles complement adding an elegance to the room. The oven, hob and washing machine are all built in. This is a light and bright room with dual aspect windows.
Set off the kitchen, is the utility area. There is space for a freestanding condensing dryer and features the black glossy units and solid wooden work surface to match that of the kitchen. Just behind is a storeroom. It's already plumbed for a wc should you wish to add an additional toilet.
The bedrooms and bathroom
To the first floor, there are two double bedrooms and a beautiful 4-piece bathroom suite. The master bedroom is spacious, spanning the front of the home. The decor is fresh and simple, the perfect restful backdrop. The owners personal styling adds a Scandi feel to this stylish room.
The 2nd bedroom is also a double bedroom. It is currently used as a studio, the sofa bed folds out into a double bed when guests visit. This is an ideal multi-functional room.
The bathroom is pure luxury. How many bathrooms can boast the space this one has? The beautiful 4-piece suite has a traditional feel with its free standing roll top bath and walk-in shower, however, the chrome fittings and swan neck taps give it a more contemporary finish. The large airing cupboard also discreetly houses the gas combination boiler. It is such a light bathroom - imagine stargazing through the velux window whilst relaxing in a bubble bath.
The rear courtyard
Step outside to the rear courtyard. The paved patio extends into an L-shaped deck - perfect for alfresco dining now the warmer weather is approaching. Stonewalling and trellis fencing give the courtyard privacy.
A newly installed oak gate leads to the rear cobbled street.
