History meets luxury when you enter Castle Park. Fancy a Castle as your neighbour? You are just across the road from Lancaster Castle, owned by the Duchy of Lancaster. It's an area of the city steeped in history still featuring the preserved cobbled streets.
Lancaster is becoming well known for its cultural and lively music scene. It is home to two universities, renowned leading grammar schools, and a training hospital. The railway station with direct links to London, Glasgow, Manchester and Edinburgh is a short 2-minute stroll, making this location ideal for commuters.
About this apartment - once a former school
This stunning apartment, considered by many to be one of the finest of its type in Lancaster, certainly boasts the wow factor. Positioned on the first floor of a beautiful grade 2 listed building this home is filled with period features. It spreads over the entire floor with wonderful high ceilings and large Georgian windows which flood the apartment with light, as well as giving uninterrupted views out to the Castle. This apartment was once part of the George Fox school and the main living area was the science lab!
The solid front door leads you from street level to the main hallway and the grand cantilevered spiral staircase to the first floor. There is a rear door here too, leading straight to the car park area. Inside the apartment, the spaciousness of the hall, together with its arches, plaster ceiling roses, and architraves immediately draw you in. The apartment offers fantastic-sized rooms throughout. The large family kitchen has ample room for a dining area and large windows give views towards the estuary and Blackpool Tower in the far distance. There is a range of wall and floor units with solid oak doors.
The main extremely spacious L-shaped reception room features large Georgian windows, with recessed shutters, looking out to the Castle and the green grassed area with mature trees. A beautiful original marble fireplace now houses a gas fire. A grand archway leads to the smaller area which was previously used for formal dining. It would lend itself to an office or library area if needed. The bedrooms are both very large doubles, giving wonderful views. The front bedroom gives views of the castle and has original recessed shutters. A shower room is adjacent. The back bedroom has lots of built-in storage and a modern ensuite shower room.
This is a truly unique home offering a blend of modern living with period and historic charm in the heart of the city.
