Where is Barley Cop Lane?
Welcome to Barley Cop Lane, a beautiful and elegant period home. Set on a now quiet road ( traffic has calmed since the opening of the new bye-pass ) this is a home which has easy access to both the centre of historic Lancaster and is also a short commute to the M6. It's within walking distance of two primary schools and a popular high school. The canal, river and Ryelands Park are just a short stroll.
Within the vicinity, you'll find convenience stores. Larger supermarkets are close by. Public transport passes by regularly both on Barley Copp Lane and on A6.
As you make your way up the enclosed and private driveway, notice the large mainly laid to lawn front garden. Space enough for two cars is available on the driveway, leading up to the garage.
Head under the attractive arch before approaching the front door of the home and make your way into the entrance hallway. The grandness of this hallway is evident upon entering. Stairs up to the first floor sit to the right hand side and access to all ground floor rooms is granted from the central hallway.
Handy storage is located under the staircase, perfect for your vacuum cleaner, ironing board and shoes. It really is a bright and inviting entrance, what with the tasteful decoration to the walls and sheer amount of natural light flooding in.
The ground floor living
The first room you approach on your left is the front facing reception room. Benefitting from high ceilings, period features and a beautiful bay window overlooking the front garden. Gorgeous wood floor beams run under your feet and blend effortlessly with the tasteful and elegant decoration to the walls. The focal point of the room has to be the real open fire place, perfect for those cosy nights during the cooler months of the year.
Next door we have the second reception room. Once more, the subtle and light decoration to the walls is accompanied by stunning wood floor boards and a mufti fuel stove. Currently used as a dining room, it's perfect for entertaining family and friends. The room is kept light and airy, due to the large French doors that open out to the private rear garden.
Toward the rear of the home you will find the kitchen. Extended to the far end, this great size kitchen offers ample preparation areas and worksurfaces plus space for a free standing fridge freezer and oven. There is an integrated dishwasher and plenty of cabinetry for storage options.
Part of the extension to the kitchen is the handy separate utility area, perfect for storing your washing machine and tumble dryer. Access out to your rear garden is afforded from this utility area as well.
The bedrooms and bathroom
As we make our way up the stairs to the first floor, you will no doubt notice just how light and airy the landing space is. This is thanks to the window overlooking the side elevation, allowing plenty of natural light within.
To the rear of the home is the great sized family bathroom. Briefly comprising of a white, 3 piece suite with shower over bath, wash basin and toilet. The room benefits from additional storage and two frosted windows, simultaneously providing natural light and privacy.
Next door we have the first of two exceptional double bedrooms. This particular room will easily accommodate a king size bed with additional furniture if required. The light, blue decoration to the walls combine with the natural light flooding in through the large double glazed window, creating a relaxing space.
Overlooking the front elevation is the master bedroom. Once again this is a fantastic sized bedroom, easily accommodating a king size bed with an assortment of additional furniture to suit. Of course the glorious bay window adds to the sheer sense of space and light in this room.
Finally we have the third bedroom overlooking the front garden. This particular bedroom would be ideal as a child's bedroom, guest room or 'work from home' study/office - it all depends on your needs.
The gardens and garage
Accessed from both the front of the property and also the rear, is the large garage. Perfect for storage or even as a hobby room/workshop. There is power and light within and it also houses the combi boiler for the home.
To the front is a substantially sized garden, mainly laid to lawn and sets the home back form the road.
To the rear is a generous sized, south facing garden to take advantage of. With a little landscaping and imagination, this private and well established garden could be the ideal retreat for family and friends to enjoy during the warmer months.
