Is this the perfect family home? Positioned in the heart of Bowerham, where Barton Road meets Gloucester Avenue, is this deceptively spacious extended family home. It's the ideal location with a west-facing sunny garden - great for enjoying the Summer Sun. This home is within walking distance of some of the areas best schools. Four primary schools are all close by including three in Bowerham and one in Scotforth too. There are also some highly regarded high schools close by too such as Ripley School and also the Grammar Schools.
Local residents love just how convenient this location is. Booths supermarket is just a 10-minute walk. There is a great range of shops in the centre of Bowerham and don't forget the farm shop at Lancaster Leisure Park. You'll also find great days out at Williamson Park. You are just two miles from junction 33 of the M6. Both the universities are close by - just a few minutes away by car. Bowerham really does offer it all!
Step inside to the spacious hallway
Barton Road has a grand entrance. Located on the side of the home, the arched entrance feels imposing. The entrance vestibule still features the original mosaic tiled floor. Step through the Upvc double glazed door and into the spacious hallway. This is a hallway that feels light and bright. Oak veneered flooring floors through and into the open plan kitchen diner/family room ahead.
The ground floor living
The bay fronted lounge is spacious. Its decor is simple in fresh shades of cream. Note the stained and leaded toplights in the windows - it adds to the character of this family home.
Next is the open kitchen-diner / family room. This room has been made both open plan and generously extended creating a room where family life can be truly enjoyed. There is the space to relax, dine and entertain. In the living area, a wood-burning stove sits back into the chimney breast. A tv point with bracket has been fitted above the stove. The oak effect flooring flows through to the kitchen.
The kitchen features a stylish kitchen fitted with traditional cottage doors, the kitchen style was chosen to be in keeping with the character of the home. The range cooker sits back into the inglenook, there is also a dishwasher integrated. The previous owners had their fridge plumbed into the alcove that extends back under the stairs. The kitchen has been extended - a polycarbonate roof creates for a light and bright room.
The utilty room and ground floor shower room
A door from the kitchen opens up into the utility room, this being a further extension to the home. This is a spacious utility - the design allows for when children come in from Rugby practise ( or in this instance a mechanic husband )- a person can quickly get changed and showered without bringing mess into the home. It's also great for the family dog to be quickly showered off!
The first floor
The first-floor landing is spacious and sets the tone for the first floor. There are 3 bedrooms - 2 are large double bedrooms, the 3rd an excellent single room. All of the bedrooms have solid oak doors and the decor in each is simple in neutral shades.
The family bathroom is 4-piece. It features a separate cubicle in addition to the main bath and is attractively panelled to dado rail height.
The attic room
The attic room is the 4th bedroom to this home. It was converted to building regulations of the time, hence the door at the bottom of the stairs, strengthed floor and double Velux windows. There is good height. This bedroom also has storage built into the eaves.
The gardens, driveway and garage
Barton Road sits on a generous plot. If you look from the front you can see how the driveway extends into a deep garden border to the right. The tarmac driveway leads to a large garage. Note how it is wide - there is space to have a workshop at home.
The rear garden is fully enclosed. Facing west it has been landscaped to easy maintenance with a large patio, raised deck and small lawn. Being enclosed makes it secure for both young children and pets.
Please note that the polycarbonate roof over the kitchen and guttering does need some works of repair.
