Welcome to The Residence
Welcome to The Residence, a luxury apartment development, viewed by many as the best Lancaster has to offer. This award-winning grade II listed building has been converted by the PJ Livesey Group. It's beautiful. It's a hi-spec. It has to be seen to truly appreciate its grandeur.
The location on the edge of the city centre is convenient for local transport, as well as having easy access to the University, hospital and the M6. It is approached by a tree lined driveway and is surrounded by greenery with views over the Forest of Bowland. The grounds are perfectly manicured.
Live here and you are neighbouring Williamson Park with its stunning grounds, duck pond and ornamental gardens. If you are feeling energetic, why not join in with the Saturday morning run? The park is also a dog walkers paradise (pets are allowed at The Residence).
The historic city centre is just a 20-minute walk ( or you could jump on the bus ). Enjoy independent shopping, visit one of the many cafes, bars and restaurants or visit one of the two highly regarded theatres. For more every day needs the recently opened Co-op is just a few minutes away.
The grand entrance
Take the grand central entrance. Step inside and you'll instantly feel at ease. This entrance is akin to a 5-star hotel lobby with comfy sofa's, beautiful artwork and plush carpets. Take the lift or stairs, admire the architecture on your way. This truly is a stunning building. Apartment 209 is on the 2nd floor.
Step inside into your own private hallway. From here you will find access to the bright and modern downstairs toilet and also at the end of the corridor is the large open plan living space. There is also a crisp, white wooden staircase taking you up to the first floor where you will find your two double bedrooms.
The living areas
Arriving in the open-plan living room, dining space and kitchen you will instantly marvel at the high ceilings which are complemented by the crisp, fresh decor. The positioning of this duplex apartment allows for there to be large double glazed sash windows from two aspects of the apartment. The views really are stunning.
There is space to formally dine and entertain guests and the open-plan design allows for conversations to flow freely whilst dinner is being cooked. Relax after dinner in the living space, admiring the grandeur of the apartment and those views across to the Forest of Bowland.
Tucked in the corner of the open-plan living space is the sleek, modern, gloss kitchen. The clean white design allows for the space to feel contemporary and elegant. All appliances are integral and include a family size fridge freezer, dish washer, washer/dryer, oven and hob.
The bedrooms and bathroom
Take the stairs up to the second floor of this apartment. Here you will find the two double bedrooms and the main bathroom. The master bedroom is completed with its very own private, sheltered balcony. The decor is neutral and fresh, a blank canvas, ready to be made your own. On those summer days you could lay in bed with those french doors open, enjoying the peace and quiet.
The second bedroom is also a double room, again with fresh, neutral decor. There is a Velux skylight window with a feature electric blind. There is also a handy cupboard over the stairs, perfcet for storage or a built in single wardrobe.
The bathroom is both chic and luxurious. The soft, neutral decor allows for the room to feel spacious. The suite is pristine in white with signature, shiny chrome fittings.
The balcony and parking
The sheltered balcony is set off the master bedroom. What could be better than enjoying a morning coffee to begin your day? This home has two private parking space. Not many apartment developments offer private parking for two and have lots of parking spaces for visiting guests.
Did you know that small pets are allowed at The Residence? Providing they are well behaved they are all welcome. The Residence is one of few apartments that allow this.
