Derby Road, Lancaster - a truly stunning home with river views

Where is Derby Road

There is something special about Derby Road and it's not just the fabulous river views. This is a street which is tucked away. There is hardly any passing traffic. It overlooks the tree-lined green in front. It is a small oasis set just moments away from the city centre.

Homes on this street don't often come up for sale. Residents will tell you that not only do they love the views, but also the convenience of the location. Many opt to leave the car at home and walk into the city, crossing over using the pedestrianised Millennium Bridge, one of Lancaster's famous landmarks.

The beautiful entrance

At first glance, this home appears quite unassuming. But as you open the sage green painted door and step into the vestibule, your interest will be piqued as you start to admire the classic period elegance.

Open the stained and leaded door ahead of you and step into the traditional hallway. A beautiful tiled floor greets you, purposely chosen to tie in the with the homes original period character. Glance up and you'll be pleased to see the original corning and ornate corbels all in perfect order.

The ground floor

Once you have torn your eyes from the captivating river view, start to explore your ground floor living areas. Note the high ceiling, the original cornicing and just how smooth the walls are (the home was re-plastered in 2017). A beautiful cast iron fireplace with gas inset provides a warming focal point in the main living room.

Step through to the dining area. Bespoke cupboards and open shelves have been built into either alcove, their traditional design purposely chosen. The decor and carpet match that of the living given a sense of space and a seamless flow. The inglenook fireplace here is used as a feature and is lit to give a beautiful glow and display art or flowers.

Next is the kitchen. Cream shaker style units are topped with dark oak laminate worksurfaces and complemented by a terracotta-coloured tiled floor. Open shelving gives it a quirky, cottage feel. The oven and gas hob are both built-in. There is even space for a dishwasher. The door ahead slides back to reveal a walk-in pantry and utility area - this ensures the kitchen is kept clutter-free!

The first floor

Wake up to views of the River from the comfort of your own bed. The decor of this calming serene master bedroom will guarantee you a restful nights sleep. The 2nd double bedroom is also beautifully decorated, this one looking out over the rear courtyard.

Serving the two bedrooms is the classically-styled house bathroom. Fitted with a crisp, white three-piece-suite gold plated taps, the bath is encased in half-height panelling painted in heritage cream to tie in with the decor. A beautiful deep bluebird print wallpaper adds to the luxury feels. The warm honey tones of the wooden floor give a feeling of warmth.

The cellar

This home has a cellar which is accessed via stone steps and has been used for storage by the present owners. The meters for the home are also located in the cellar.

The rear courtyard

Step out from the kitchen and into the enclosed rear courtyard. Stone walls are topped with fencing to give privacy. Planted tubs and pots add colour and interest.
