Welcome to Willow Lane, a perfectly positioned 4 bed detached home with outstanding views. Tucked away on a small cul-de-sac of just 4 homes, many people do not even realise these homes exist. They rarely come available for sale - the last home to be actually sold was 13 years ago!
Live here and you can be forgiven for forgetting that you are just 1.3 miles from the city centre. You are surrounded by greenery. The fauna nature reserve becomes an extension of your rear garden and in the distance, you have a perfect view of Williamson Memorial.
Why live here?
Ask a local resident why they love living here and many will cite the convenience as well as the natural beauty. How many homes can boast both a rural and almost city centre location? The education is excellent with many of the areas best schools close by including both Willow Lane and Dallas Road Primary School.
Lancaster train station is also close by making it perfect for those that regular commute.
Park your car on the driveway - you'll easily get 3 cars parked here side by side and step through the composite front door into the spacious hallway. Stairs ahead lead up to the first landing area. Discreetly set off the hallway is the ground floor WC, spacious enough to also be a cloaks cupboard. Just to the right is the ground floor study.
We will begin though to the left with the spacious lounge.
The ground floor living
The spacious bay fronted lounge is perfect for the whole family to relax with space for twin sofas. A coal effect gas fire creates a warming focal point- perfect as the summer slowly turns to Autumn. The decor is neutral, the outlook pleasant. This is a home where you truly have greenery surrounding you.
A door opens into the dining room, although this can also be accessed directly from the kitchen. The decor and styling match that of the lounge with pleasingly neutral smooth walls. It's large enough for the family to dine and also for a piano to be played. French doors open out to the fabulous garden. It is very private.
The 3rd reception room is used as the home office. How would you use it? It could be a place to quietly read or even a child's playroom. The choice is yours!
Next is the shaker style kitchen finished with honey-toned wooden cabinets and a dark stone effect worksurface. The cabinets are tall, the pan drawers deep, both allowing for lots of storage. The double smeg oven with its 6 ring burner is a key feature - a desired featured by many budding chefs! Note how the kitchen sink is positioned. When you have a view like - even simple chores like washing up can become a joy!
The bedrooms and bathrooms
On the first floor, there are 4 double bedrooms. All of the bedrooms have built-in wardrobes. The two children's bedrooms have been recently professionally decorated.
The master bedroom is a spacious double with ample built-in wardrobe space. It also has its own, private ensuite shower room.
The family bathroom features a 3-piece suite in white. It has been fully tiled and there is a shower over the bath.
The spacious gardens and views
Willow Lane is surrounded by greenery. This home is the last property on the cul-de-sac hence the garden feels more private than that of neighbouring homes.
The owners have landscaped the garden and cut the hedges to take in the fabulous view. The block paved patio has been extended to give the space to dine alfresco. The path leads to the garden gate which gives private access to the fauna reserve and nature park. The duck pond is just behind this home. You'll be pleased to know this is one of the few protected views in Lancaster.
To the front of the home, there is off-street parking for three vehicles and a detached double garage. The garage has both power and light.

Does this spacious family home have the best position on Westbourne Park?
With outstanding views over the nature reserve, a tucked-away cul-de-sac position and no passing traffic, we certainly think so. The 4 bedrooms are generous, the master is ensuite. The gardens wrap around the front side and rear. This is a home you do not want to miss!
