Where is Derwent Road?
Freehold is one of our most requested areas of Lancaster. Probably because it's one of the greenest! Residents initially move here due to sought after schools and excellent motorway links.
They like the fact you can walk into the city, yet just a 5 minute stroll brings you to the park. They tell us there is a great sense of community, whether it's just getting to know your neighbours through to joining in the local events at The Gregson Centre.
We love it as it's one of the few places you can get a period home with a garden!
Williamsons Park and Lancaster Royal Grammar School are also just around the corner making this area very popular with family buyers.
Make your way through the iron gate and to the front door of Number 36 Derwent Road, the front elevation is neatly presented and the mature hedges add an element of privacy.
Step inside and discover a bright and welcoming entrance hall, there is ample room for taking shoes and coats off and tucking them neatly out of the way.
Access is available to both ground floor rooms and the staircase leads you either up or down to the next level. First, let's discover the ground floor...
The ground floor living
The ground floor is home to two reception rooms. The front reception room, currently set up as a home office, is a charming space. Bursting with character, the picture rails and cornicing are still intact. To the centre of the room is the cast iron fireplace, enhancing the period feel to this space.
To the rear of the home is the second reception room. This space will leave you speechless. Enchanting and elegant, the decor is clean and crisp, allowing for the stunning signature features to speak for themselves. The ornate cornicing is mesmerizing. Two original cabinets either side of the open fire provide excellent storage. The real wow factor though, comes from the large bay window, flooding the space with natural light and also providing stunning uninterrupted views towards the Lakeland Hills.
The lower ground floor is designed for entertainin
Take the stairs down to the lower ground floor, this space really is made for entertaining. The extended living space is the real hub of the home, there is ample room to relax, cook and dine. The open-plan layout allows for conversation to flow freely throughout the room.
There is a snug area with a wood burning stove to the centre which adds a real cosy feel. The kitchen is modern and well appointed, cream high gloss units provide excellent storage and add a sleek and modern feel.
French doors lead out from the lower ground floor and into the extensive rear garden. Velux windows in the extension bring a real sense of the outdoors in. This space lends itself perfectly for a large dining table to seat the whole family and visiting guests.
A useful addition to this space is the handy WC. Ideal for visiting guests.
To the front of the home on the lower ground floor the original cellar has been kept intact, currently used as a utility and providing excellent storage.
The upper floors
Take the stairs up to the first floor, here you will find two of the home's bedrooms and the shower room. Located to the front of the home, is the well proportioned first single bedroom. Currently used as a nursey, decorated in soft neutral tones, this is a space well suited to a child or visiting guests.
To the rear of the home is an extremely spacious double bedroom, spanning the width of the home, this space really is extensive. Decorated in soft delicate tones, this is the ideal room to relax and unwind before a good nights sleep. Stand at the window and admire the stunning panoramic views of Lancaster Castle and the Lakeland Hills. Imagine waking up to this view every single morning.
The shower room is modern and well designed. Housing a three piece white suite in a crisp and contemporary fashion. The room is partially tiled for ease and convenience. The stained glass window perfectly fuses the modern space and period features.
Up on the second floor you will find a further two bedrooms and the bathroom. Mirroring the layout of the floor below, the single bedroom is located to the front of the home, being on the second floor, this space has a wonderfully private feel.
Again, the double bedroom to the rear of the home shares the extremely spacious feel and those stunning panoramic views, it would be hard to choose which to have as your master.
The bathroom is an elegant and captivating space, the roll top bath is particularly appealing.
The extensive rear garden
The garden to the rear has a generous sized flagged seating area where you can sit and relax whilst enjoying the afternoon sunshine thanks to the west facing position. This area also features a timber storage shed for all your gardening bits and pieces. From the flagged patio there is a step down onto a generous sized lawn garden area where the kids can play. The mature hedges and trees offers privacy from the neighboring homes and there are planted borders to add extra colour.
