Welcome to Standen Park House
Set in a prestigiously peaceful and private setting, No 9 Standen Park House is a beautiful, spacious family home. This is a private and exclusive estate, the style of homes very similar to the Georgian properties that grace the more exclusive parts of central London.
Standen Park House was originally built by the architect Thomas Standen in 1816. It has had an interesting past as a former hospital. In 1999 it was converted to create a number of exclusive homes. This particular home has a privileged position looking out over the gravelled driveway and stunning mature grounds of the estate.
Lancaster City Centre is just a 5-minute drive. Both Lancaster University and the University of Cumbria can be reached in under 10 minutes. Education in the area is highly regarded with both Lancaster Royal Boys Grammar School and Lancaster Girls Grammar close by.
Pull up on the gravel driveway, hear the gentle crunch of the gravel under your foot as you walk towards your front door. Pause for a moment to admire the grandeur of your surrounding and pause to listen to just how peaceful this location really is.
Admire the cast iron railings as you follow the stone path that leads to your glossy black door. The facade of Standen Park House is Grade II listed, hence the traditional and rather grand matching doors, windows and railings. Step inside and each home is different.
The ground floor living
You can't help but be impressed by the high ceilings, a characteristic trait from the era of this home. To your right is the study. If you are working from home, you'll be attracted by the view looking out over the green. The central tree is truly magnificent.
Continue your journey along the hallway. Next is the ground floor WC - it's ideal for when you have visiting guests.
Completing this floor is the impressive open plan living room. Designed to be a welcoming space where all the family can come together this room lends itself to multi-generational living. Whether your taste is for grander social gatherings or quiet family evenings – whatever you want to use this lounge for, it works. How many living rooms can boast the space for a piano? The southerly windows offer up views looking out over the central Piazza.
The lower ground floor living
The lower ground floor is also dedicated to living. How many homes can boast their own personal library / TV room? Floor to ceiling shelves cover the walls. The owner will leave the custom made shelving if required. The library could, of course, be used as an additional bedroom. The utility room is just next door and could be adapted into a shower room / WC.
Next is the dine-in kitchen. Predominately white, the minimalist design is fresh. The matt white units are plentiful, accented by a bank of light horizontal oak units which houses the double oven and American sized fridge freezer. This is a kitchen where the family can gather. There is space to relax and dine, such is the spacious layout and design.
The bedrooms and bathrooms
The first floor plays host to 3 double bedrooms and the luxurious family bathroom. As expected, all the ceiling are high. The master suite spans the rear of the home and has a stylish en-suite shower room all fitted and tiled in white. Look out of the window and you have views out over The Piazza.
There are two further double bedrooms. The decor is pleasingly simple in each. These bedrooms face the front of the home and the windows beautifully frame the greenery outside, giving this home a feeling of peace and tranquillity.
Next is the impressive family bathroom. Have you seen a bathroom as pristine? Whether you choose to relax in the deep freestanding bath or you prefer to take a shower in the large walk-in spa-like shower, this is a bathroom of pure indulgence.
Standen Park House is set within immaculately kept, private, mature grounds. These grounds are mainly laid to lawn with stunning foliage and large specimen trees. Each property enjoys part of a neatly kept lawn and private patio adjacent to the home. No 9 Standen Park House has a stone patio which faces due south, perfect for alfresco dining in the Summer.
Your private garage
Parking at Standen Park House is plentiful with ample space on the gravel driveway. This home also has a private garage set behind secure electric gates. The garage has power and light.
