Welcome to The Residence, a luxury apartment development, viewed by many as the best Lancaster has to offer. This grade II listed building has been converted by the PJ Livesey Group. It's beautiful. It's hi-spec. It has to be seen to truly appreciate.
Located close to the city centre, this development is convenient for local transport, and the M6 motorway is around ten minutes' drive away. There is also the recent addition of a Co-Op convenience store literally just around the corner for those essential items. This apartment is on the first floor of the South side of the Residence with accommodation over two levels.
Come on in....
The welcoming communal entrance greets you with a real vast and grand feel which buyers are sure to be impressed with. As soon as you step foot inside this simply stunning development you will feel at home. The features on offer are beautiful and historic whilst there is space for you to greet your guests at the communal seating area which not all apartment blocks can boast.
The first floor can be accessed by lift or the stairs and the main entrance into your apartment opens into a bright and airy hallway. This space allows access to the ground floor living areas, a very handy and spacious wc, along with a great fitted storage cupboard which continues under the stairs, ideal for your coats, shoes, hoover and ironing board.
The living accommodation
The main living area has a really contemporary feel to it thanks to the tasteful decoration, finished in neutral tones and complemented by the plush, grey carpet. There is also a few original features to this space which really does complement the modern styling which the owners have created.
Just imagine relaxing in this space after a long hard day with your feet up in front of the telly, or maybe entertaining your family and friends when you invite them round to sample your home cooked delights whilst sitting down at your dining table. The L-Shaped living space allows you the options to do just that, relax and dine in style. The room has a wonderful, bright and airy feel thanks to the very large windows which looks out onto your very own, private decked seating area which is larger than you may first think.
The kitchen actually feels separate to the living space thanks to the way it has been designed, however is open so you can keep in touch with your guests whilst you cook your signature dish. The very sleek and classy kitchen has been fitted with a great range of built in storage with work tops to three sides. Built in items include a fridge/freezer, a dishwasher and also a washer/dryer. There is also an integrated Neff oven and hob, complete with an extractor fan..
There are lights under the units to shine down on your worktops whilst from the sink area there is a double glazed window which looks out to your private decked garden area.
Bedrooms and bathroom
Once you are up to the first floor of this apartment there is a well appointed landing area which has a further built in storage cupboard, ideal to hide away your towels and bedding. This space also houses the combi boiler for the home.
We love the size of the main bedroom with its great range of built in wardrobes across one wall. Ample space is available for a large bed and the cabinets along with the head board will be included in the sale as they match the wardrobes. The feature double glazed window enjoys a pleasing aspect onto your private decked garden and the enclosed communal gardens.
The second bedroom is actually larger than you may first think. As you first enter the room you are greeted by a double bed, a feature window and some original beams, but behind the door as you enter is another area which will be ideal for a dressing room, a home office or an extra sleeping area if needed. The choice really is yours. Either way, we are certain that you will like the space available.
The final room inside the apartment is the main bathroom which is in addition to the separate wc on the ground floor. This first floor bathroom has a very elegant feel with tasteful tiling complementing the modern, white three piece suite. Above the bath there is a shower which gives you options and there is a space for a mirror just above the sink area to help you get ready in the mornings or on those special nights out.
Private outside space and communal gardens
This home can actually boast what may well be one of the largest, private and enclosed spaces this development has to offer. The space spans the full width of the apartment and overlooks the integral communal garden area. Just imagine sitting out here with your family or friends enjoying a glass of wine, or simply just enjoying the peace and quiet whilst reading your favourite novel.
The communal grounds are beautifully maintained with a large tree lined driveway and there are two allocated parking spaces. Visitor spaces are also available and are clearly marked. The communal entrance is very impressive and really sets the standards high.
