Welcome to Cumberland View, a beautiful cottage, hidden away from the world, yet just footsteps from public transport and local amenities. So many people do not know this hidden gem of a street exists.
Cumberland View is a slice of tranquillity. It's a peaceful location, sitting in the garden you'll be listening to the sounds of the birds.
Live here and you are in walking distance of both the University of Cumbria and Lancaster Royal Infirmary. The local primary school is just across on street on Bowerham Road.
Homes on this street don't often come available. When you take a look at the view and begin to realise just how close to the city centre you are - you'll begin to understand why.
Leaving the town centre behind you, enter a little known walkway and through a tucked away front gate. Walk up the shared path and take a moment to feel a sense of calm, within the privacy of an enclosed garden. Open the traditional white painted soild wooden door and step inside.
The ground floor
The lounge is to the front of the home - it is a light and bright living room featuring an original and Victorian Cast Iron Fireplace. There are views of the garden from the window, and on those on those cooler nights you can enjoy the warmth and glow of a roaring open fire.
Step through to the kitchen - the units are plentiful, finished with beech shaker style door fronts. The oven and hob are both integral. There is plenty of room for white goods and also space for a small dining table.
Set just behind is the utility room. This area also has lots of built-in storage. You'll also find the gas combination boiler discreetly tucked away.
The first floor
Take the stairs to the first floor. Straight ahead is the master bedroom. This is a spacious double bedroom spanning the full width of the home. The decor is soft in shades of cream. An original cast iron fireplace features. Take a moment to admire the view across the landscaped grounds of the University of Cumbria. We understand that you can walk through these grounds, exiting at Wyresdale Road, and crossing straight into Williamson Park.
The 3-piece bathroom is located to the rear. Fitted in white, this is a stylish bathroom with slate tiling around the bath.
The 2nd floor
The top floor is one large double bedroom with a vaulted ceiling and Velux window. Storage is built under the eaves. Neighbouring homes have added a dormer. When you look out through the Velux window and see the far-reaching views across to Morecambe Bay and the Lakeland Fells, you'll understand why. This is a home with possibilities.
The garden and surrounding greenery really is the crowning glory of Cumberland View. Combined with the views on offer, very few homes can compete. Dine alfresco on the patio whilst enjoying the peace and tranquillity. This home also has a rear yard complete with a ramp - perfect for bringing in your bicycle and storing it in the shed. The gravelled area to the bottom of the garden is private parking for this and the neighbouring home. It is accessed via a side street (you drive in and reverse out). Don't forget there is also lots of on-street parking in the vicinity too!
