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 the well maintained front elevation of Number 4 Derwent Road to the front door.
Step inside and discover a characterful and charming entrance hall with grand proportions. Immediately upon entering it is clear that this home is going to be special. There is space to hang coats and store shoes before stepping through into the property.
The entrance hall boasts a wood burning stove to the centre, enhancing the cosy and charming feel to this space. Access can be gained to two ground floor rooms, the garage and the stairs which either lead you up or down to the next level.
First, let's start in the bay fronted study space...
The ground floor living
Located to the front of the home is the bay fronted reception room which is currently used as a home office. This space is perfectly suited to the modern demands of working from home, the feature bay window floods the space with natural light and the fire to the centre creates a warm and inviting focal point.
To the rear of the home is the stunning living room. Spanning the width of the property, this is a bright and airy space which enjoys a pleasing outlook over the leafy green extensive garden, towards Lancaster Castle and the Lakeland Hills.
The lower ground floor
Take the stairs down to the lower ground floor, here you will find the kitchen, space to dine, the utility, a shower room and excellent storage facilities.
The kitchen offers an array of modern units which provide plenty of storage space. This is a great kitchen if you love to cook and host dinner parties, partially open-plan to the dining space, a fantastic environment for entertaining.
The dining space is located to the rear of the home, partially open-plan to the kitchen and with French doors opening out on to the rear garden. This space is plenty big enough for a table to seat the whole family and visiting guests. Why not have the French doors open in the summer whilst hosting a family BBQ, this space is the real hub of the home.
The utility space houses plumbing and plenty of room for all necessary appliances to be neatly stowed away.
The shower room boasts a three piece white suite and is partially tiled for ease and convenience.
Storage is not something Number 4 Derwent Road is short of. The lower ground floor still has a cellar room, a store room and built in cupboards.
The first floor bedrooms & bathroom
Up on the first floor, you will find the home's four double bedrooms and the family bathroom. The master bedroom is located to the rear of the home with two large windows allowing for this space to have a breathtaking view. Imagine waking up here, opening the curtains and peering over towards the rolling hills of the Lake District, simply stunning.
Adjacent to the master bedroom is a second double bedroom, this space has wonderful character with exposed beams and neutral decoration creating the perfect blank canvas.
A further two double bedrooms can be found on the first floor, both enjoying a pleasing outlook over the front elevation. One of the spaces being decorated in bold red tones, creating a warm and inviting space.
The family bathroom boasts a modern three piece white suite. The corner bath is enticing, a pleasant spot to relax and unwind whilst having a bubble bath before a good nights sleep.
The extensive rear garden, garage & off road parki
Freehold is known for its extensive rear gardens but Number 4 Derwent Road's really is in a league of its own. The space is amazing. A large rolling lawn with an array of well planted flower beds create a space for the whole family to enjoy.
A large patio area close to the house is perfect for placing outdoor furniture and enjoying the summer sunshine throughout the day and into the evening.
Number 4 Derwent Road also has a large garage and off road parking, rare for a home in Freehold. The garage can be accessed via the house or through double doors externally and boasts fantastic storage or potential to create further living accommodation.
