Welcome to Cumberland View, a beautiful cottage, hidden away from the world, yet just footsteps from public transport and local amenities. So many people do not know this hidden gem of a street exists.
Cumberland View is a slice of tranquillity. It's a peaceful location, sitting in the garden you'll be listening to the sounds of the birds.
Live here and you are in walking distance of both the University of Cumbria and Lancaster Royal Infirmary. The local primary school is just across on street on Bowerham Road.
Homes on this street don't often come available. When you take a look at the view and begin to realise just how close to the city centre you are - you'll begin to understand why.
Park your car in the allocated space at the end of the garden and walk up the garden path. Take a moment to pause and listen to the sounds of the birds. You'll feel the sense of calm and tranquillity that washes over you. Open the traditional white painted soild wooden door and step inside to Cumberland View.
The ground floor
The lounge is to the front of the home - it is a light and bright living room featuring an original Victorian Cast Iron Fireplace. Now the summer is approaching you'll be focussing more on the garden, however on those cooler nights you can't beat the warmth and glow of a roaring open fire.
Step through to the kitchen - the units are plentiful, finished with beech shaker style door fronts. The oven and hob are both integral. A breakfast bar has been built in - it's ideal for casual dining and enjoying a morning coffee stop.
Set just behind is the utility room. This area also has lots of built-in storage. You'll also find the gas combination boiler discreetly tucked away.
The first floor
Take the stairs to the first floor. Straight ahead is the master bedroom. This is a spacious double bedroom spanning the full width of the home. The decor is soft in shades of cream. An original cast iron fireplace features. Take a moment to admire the view. You won't find another period home in Bowerham with views likes this.
The 3-piece bathroom is located to the rear. Fitted in white, this is a stylish bathroom with deep dark chocolate tiling around the bath.
The 2nd floor
The top floor is one large double bedroom with its vaulted ceiling and Velux window. Storage is built under the eaves.
Neighbouring homes have added a dormer, some have created 2 bedrooms on this floor. This is a home with possibilities. When you look out through the Velux window you'll quickly understand why.
The gardens and parking
The garden and surrounding greenery really is the crowning glory of Cumberland View. Combined with the views on offer, very few homes can compete. Dine alfresco on the patio whilst enjoying the peace and tranquillity.
This home also has a rear yard complete with a ramp - perfect for bringing in your bicycle and storing it in the shed.
An additional benefit to this home is the private parking. The gravelled area to the bottom of the garden is private parking for this and the neighbouring home.
We understand that Stainsby Joinery and Fencing are to fit new fencing and posts along the boundary of the property, as well as brand new bespoke gates for the parking area, on July 8th and 9th 2019
