Galgate is a superb traditional village, conveniently located just 3 miles south of Lancaster City Centre, 3/4 mile from Lancaster University and easily accessible for the M6.
It's a village noted for its sense of community - many of the locals are born and bred, generations of their families have lived in the village for years.
Galgate has two popular pubs, a village store, doctors surgery and even hairdressers. The local primary school is highly regarded and ranked. It is also in walking distance of this home. Galgate also has a true village hall which hosts a wide range of events, classes and meet ups.
Pull up outside your home. There are no parking restrictions on Chapel Street, and being a one-way street, everyone is parked in the same direction. Step inside through the UPVC double glazed door and into the hallway.
Stairs ahead lead upstairs. Let's begin by turning left into the welcoming lounge.
The ground floor living
Light and bright and inviting all at once, this sitting room is beautifully decorated. Cosy up on the twin sofas in front of the inglenook fireplace. The alcoves to either side are perfect for bookshelves, ideal for those academics amongst us.
Step through to the kitchen diner. This is where this home seriously scores. The beech modern units are plentiful, providing lots of storage. There is space for appliances including a dishwasher as the outhouse has been re-designed to be a purpose utility area. This is a kitchen where you can dine and entertain both family and friends. After all, you'll be wanting to invite people around for dinner!
The bedrooms and bathroom
Return to the hallway and take the stairs upto the first floor. To the left is the master bedroom.
The master bedroom spans the width of the home. It is spacious and bright with ample space for the double bed, wardrobes and even a dressing table. It is is also immaculately presented with simple fresh, white decor and a feature wallpaper to one wall. The 2nd bedroom is also a double room, albeit smaller than the master bedroom. Pretty in pink, this bedroom has views over the garden to the rear.
The new bathroom has been designed for relaxation and has been tiled from floor to ceiling. The 3-piece suite features a P-shaped shower bath with electric shower above.
The outhouse / utility
Step outside of the rear door and straight ahead is a purpose-built outhouse. This has been cleverley converted to become a useful utility room, plumbed for a washer machine and also space for a tumble dryer.
The landscaped garden
The rear yard has been totally transformed with beautiful Indian stone paving and plum slate. A raised bed has been built for those keen on growing their own veg. This is the ideal place to sit out, enjoy BBQ's in the Summer, morning coffee on a sunny day or simply relax around a fire pit on those cooler evenings. To have outside space like this is a huge plus.
