Haverbreaks Place is a quiet Cul-de-Sac on the private Haverbreaks Estate, positioned South-West of Lancaster City Centre. Arguably one of the most desirable locations to live in the local area due, in part, to its close proximity to the city centre while also offering a relaxed & rural environment. As a private estate, there is virtually no through traffic making this a lovely secluded place to live with a strong sense of community.
The street itself runs adjacent to Lancaster Canal and is surrounded by greenery with the Fairfield Nature Reserve is also just a 5-minute walk away, a perfect place for the more active among us. Haverbreaks also falls in the catchment area for the best schools in Lancaster with some of the primary schools in Scoforth regularly achieving fantastic Ofsted reports and with Ripley St Thomas just a stone's throw away along with the outstanding Boys & Girls Grammar nearby also.
About this Home
Number 14 is a spacious two-bedroom bungalow with a sizeable front and back garden with mature hedgerows, bushes, and flowers surrounding the entire plot alongside very well-maintained lawns. The back garden does have a North-East aspect and backs directly onto the canal, but due to beautiful trees and bushes situated at the bottom of the garden still offer's a very private place to escape to.
The house itself while in good condition is in need of some modernization and more than likely will require decorating to suit more modern tastes. It offers a good floor plan with two double bedrooms occupying the front of the house while the living room and kitchen diner face out into the garden. There is also a very well positioned conservatory tucked off the back of the kitchen that is slightly raised and gives wonderful views of the garden. The garage is attached to the main building but is accessible via a small courtyard off the utility room from the kitchen. The three-piece master bathroom off the central hallway and a separate W.C just as you enter the house as well.
You have scope to extend this property by building upwards into the attic space, something that has been done by similar properties on the street already. Creating a new master bedroom taking advantage of the canal views of freeing up more space on the ground floor for an extra reception room is very much a possibility.
