Where is Tangelwood?
Welcome to Tanglewood, an individual architect designed home set in well- established gardens on the edge of Lancaster Canal.
Haverbreaks is a private estate, set just 1 mile south-east of Lancaster City Centre. Residents enjoy the peace and quiet countryside living brings along with easy accessibility to the city centre and the areas key employers. It's easy to see why living here is so desirable; shrouded in greenery, it is so peaceful. Being a private gated estate means there is little traffic, other than the local residents and their visitors.
There is an impressive selection of schools, with local primary schools in both Bowerham and Scotforth gaining 'outstanding’ in their Ofsted inspections. Ripley St Thomas is within walking distance and is also highly regarded. Both the girls and boys grammar school are within walking distance.
Pull up on tarmac driveway. There's ample parking for several vehicles, there is even the space to keep a motorhome, should you desire.
Enter through the front door, into the light-filled hallway. Look upwards, this hallway has a double-height ceiling and galleried landing. The hallway sits centrally. We'll begin in the main family living area.
The ground floor living
Throughout this home, the decor is simple, in neutral shades. There is no wallpaper, the walls are plain, allowing the garden views to do the talking. It is a perfect blank canvas.
The lounge is spacious, perfect for family living. It has a dual aspect with a large picture window looking out over the beautiful gardens. French doors open out to a raised patio, perfect for these warmer summer days. A wall-hung fire sits on the white-painted brick wall creating a warming focal point. An open arch leads through to the spacious dining room.
The dining room is the ideal size for those that like to entertain family and friends and is conveniently located adjacent to the sizeable kitchen. Imagine family Christmas's with a large tree in the corner. It also has superb garden views.
Next is the kitchen which is impressively large. You'll want to install a new kitchen, however, the layout allows for the perfect family room to be created with space to cook, casually dine and relax. There's also a gas fire installed. French doors open out to the raised terrace - alfresco dining is on our mind
The utility room and ground floor wc
Adjacent to the kitchen is the galley style utility room. It's designed to be practical, with plumbing for a washing machine and tumble dryer and space for lots of storage. A door leads out to the garden, another into the integral garage. There is also a useful ground floor WC, ideally positioned if you need to pop in from the garden.
The ground floor bedrooms and shower room
Looking out to the front of the home, yet still fully private, are two further rooms. These rooms give the home flexibility. You might choose to use them as bedrooms, after all there is the ground floor shower room adjacent. They could easily become home offices, a playroom or somewhere that a more dependent relative stops. The larger of these two rooms has a fully glazed door that leads out to the side garden and has its own private patio.
The first floor
Take the stairs to the first floor. The galleried landing looks down over the hallway below. The Velux window floods this hallway with natural light. You'll find lots of built-in storage cupboards.
The master bedroom is impressively spacious. The ceilings are high and along one wall is a bank of built floor to ceiling wardrobes, cupboards and shelves. A large ensuite shower room is set off. There is easily the space for his and her and washbasins. The key feature of this master suite has to be the terraced balcony. It certainly steals the show. The views of the garden are simply beautiful. Imagine walking up to the peaceful sound of bird song.
The 2nd double bedroom has lots of built-in storage, large enough to create an ensuite shower room or spacious walk-in wardrobe. This room has views over the rear garden. The 3rd double bedroom looks out to the front of the home.
The garage is larger than average and also has it's own personal door to the side, leading through to a large area which could easily be used as a workshop or boot room. Sporting enthusiasts will find lots of easily accessible storage. There is also power and light. The garage is also accessible from the house via the utility room.
Step outside and discover what makes Tanglewood such a draw to outdoor lovers, families, children and pet-owners alike: its swathes of lawn, fabulous planted borders, total privacy and raised patios - perfectly suited to alfresco dining.
The gardens wrap around this home, giving all of the rooms total privacy. In summer, the gardens come to life, as the perennial plants flower into bloom adding vibrant colour. This is a garden you want to explore. Find the almost hidden path in the two corners and take the gently sloped steps as it leads down to the canal bank. Whilst the canal bank also has mature planting, we have to ask the question - canal boat anyone?
