Where is Millar Court?
Welcome to Millar Court, a stylish executive detached home set on the exclusive Haverbreaks development. Haverbreaks is a leafy, private, secure development just 1 mile south of the city centre. This is where many of Lancaster's finest, and often largest homes are located. There is very little traffic, only the residents and their visitors pass by.
Millar Court is a small cul-de-sac of just 5 individually architect designed homes. This is a street which is shrouded in greenery. Homes are set back from each other, discreetly positioned to give each property privacy.
Schools in the catchment area are highly regarded. The local primary schools achieve outstanding Ofsted results, whilst at senior school age, both Ripley Academy and the two highly regarded Grammar schools are nearby.
Pull up onto your large tarmac driveway. There is parking for several cars.
Step through the welcoming entrance porch and into one of the most spacious and light hallways you'll see. Light floods through the Velux windows bouncing off the crisp white decor. The split levels lead your eyes everywhere. For now, turn left, taking a few steps down to the living accommodation. Before you step down, check out the spacious cloakroom and WC - it's ideal for visiting guests.
The living rooms
The spacious living room will easily seat the largest of families with almost floor to ceiling patio doors that slide open and allow you to admire the leafy garden view. It is so big that the current owners chose to create a formal dining area to one end as they enjoy entertaining family and friends.
This allowed for the dining room to become a games room, a place where literally family board games can be played and musical instruments played and practised. The decor in each is soft and neutral, the greenery that surrounds the homes adds the colour and therefore nature really does become one of the main focal points of this beautiful home.
The stylish kitchen and utility room
The contemporary kitchen itself is of the highest standards. Recently installed, this kitchen is in many ways, the real hub of the home. Matt grey units are enhanced by sparkling white worksurfaces. There is so much storage. Cooks will love the range cooker, it's perfect for rustling up culinary treats and will suit those who love to entertain. Imagine cooking a hearty weekend breakfast, whilst the kids perch at the breakfast bar as you talk about your plans for the day ahead.
Set off the kitchen is the utility room. How many homes can boast of a utility room big enough to house a large American double fridge freezer?
The bedrooms and bathrooms
Take the stairs and head up to the upper floor. The splits levels of this home mean staircases are shallow. The landing area acts more of a lobby, it is such a light and bright area.
Your first port of call is the glorious master bedroom. A king size bed stands proud heading up the room. There is ample space for his and her's wardrobes - storage here will never be an issue, even for the most ardent clothes shopper. Sneak a peek through to your ensuite shower room. Recently fitted, you'll be soon enjoying refreshing morning showers under the powerful shower spray.
Adjacent is the 3-piece family bathroom. If you prefer to bathe, you'll soon be falling in love with the deep free-standing bath.
Next, you'll discover 3 further double bedrooms, all of which look out over the mature woodland and garden behind. The 2nd of the bedrooms could easily also be the master bedroom, given its large dimensions and own ensuite. Which will you choose? The 3rd and 4th bedrooms both make excellent children rooms - we, in particular, love the 3rd bedroom with its dual aspect windows and deep bay window. The owner's daughter loves to curl up in the window whilst reading, feeling the warmth of the sun streaming through the window.
The gardens and double garage
The gardens at Millar Court are just waiting to be explored. From sunkissed patio areas through to secret hideaways, the gardens have their own magical feel.
The lower garden is perfect for children to play. Gentle sloping stone steps lined with planted rockeries and abundant flower beds lead down to the lawn. Kids can kick around a ball, bounce around on the trampoline whilst the adults dine alfresco on the large patio adjacent to the home whilst keeping a watchful look.
This versatile garden offers great potential, especially for those with green fingers. Furthermore, the garden extends into a small wooded area, also to the rear which is designed around nature and makes for safe and exciting exploring for children.
The tarmac driveway provides plentiful parking for several vehicles as well as access through two up and over doors into the double garage. This large garage space benefits from power and light and provides ample storage space.
