Welcome to Beech Road
Welcome to Beech Road, a quiet residential street in the attractive Village of Halton just 3 miles northeast of Lancaster. Situated on the north shore of the River Lune, Halton has its roots as an Anglo-Saxon settlement as far back as the Norman Conquests. The village is split along the High Road and Low Road (Running adjacent to the River) with some modern housing developments and properties dating back to the 17th & 18th centuries. The new M6 link road also connects the south side of the village to Morecambe as well as country roads through to Slyne with Hest and Caton. Halton boasts a highly-rated local butcher, fish, and chip shop as well as The Greyhound Pub. A well-regarded local primary school and a successful community centre with a playground, playing field, and mini-skate park round off this village as a perfect place to settle down or raise a family.
Beech Road can be found on the edge of Halton running off High Road and backing on to a scenic view of rolling hills and farmland. Originally built as a bungalow but now has a dormer roof conversion with three bedrooms, three reception rooms, and an attached garage. The house has two driveways, one on either side of the building, so along with the garage has off-street parking for up to three vehicles. A few steps up the driveway and through the front for you will find yourself in the welcoming hallway, one of the first things that jump out will be how well presented this house is. Tasteful wallpaper, carpets, and fittings run throughout and are sure to appeal to many.
Head to the end of the hallway and make a left and we will enter the spacious front lounge. Flooded with light from the large window overlooking the front garden it is a delightful place to relax. This room would suit many styles of furniture and has a quaint electric fire to act as a focal point.
On the opposite side of the house is the second reception room, currently utilized as a home office. Something which we know a lot of people will now be needing.
Open Plan Kitchen Diner
Running the rear width of the house is the open plan kitchen diner. At one point this would have been two separate rooms but has been knocked through in order to make better use of the space. We enter into the lounge/dining area on the right-hand side with the kitchen governing to the left, both rooms share stylish wood-style flooring creating a nice flow between both spaces. Gracious double doors lead out granting wonderful views of the back garden.
The fitted kitchen has a countertop and units along each wall with an integrated oven and gas hob on the far wall, there is also a free-standing fridge and washing machine. Generously sized with lots of storage and access to the rear patio this is a true family kitchen. From the kitchen there is also access to the rear patio from the stable door.
If we return to the hallway and make our way up the stairs to the first floor we can explore the bedrooms. From the landing turn left to step into the master bedroom, a sizeable room with his and hers built-in wardrobes and large south-facing window. Much like the rest of the house, it has been elegantly decorated.
Adjacent to the master is the second bedroom, again a good-sized double with a large window creating a light environment. This would make a pleasing guest room or child room. The third bedroom is more suited to a single bed but could fit a double if necessary, currently it hosts some large wardrobes and doesn't feel cramp.
Bathroom & Shower Room
The house benefits from two washrooms, a bathroom on the ground floor, and a recently fitted shower room on the first floor. Downstairs it is a three-piece bathroom with raised corner bath, it is tiled wall to wall and has a very cosy feel to it. Upstairs the new shower room sits at the top of the stairs. Stylish modern tiles compliment the stylish fixtures and the room is dominated by the large double shower.
Gardens & Garage
Between the front driveways, there is a small gravel rock garden. Low maintenance but still has some attractive plants and bushes and sets a lovely tone for the rest of the property. The rear garden can be accessed from the open plan kitchen diner, the garage, or the path around either side of the home. The garden is set above the rear of the house by 2/3 feet and is split into two sections. On the left-hand side is a well-proportioned patio and to the right is a well looked after lawn with vegetable patch. A stunning dry stone wall backs on to the fields behind the garden with a gorgeous mature flower bed in front, this adds real depth and layers to the garden.
Externally the home also benefits from having security lighting to the front, side and rear, an outside tap and a handy power point.
