Where is Kensington Road?
Kensington Road is located in the area known as Greaves, one of Lancaster's most popular locations South of the River Lune. Being only minutes from the City Centre where you will find a variety of high street shops, bars and restaurants. makes it appealing to many.
The area has a varied mix of homes ranging from apartments and semi detached homes, through to larger Victorian terrace properties. Greaves Park is a stone's throw away, where there is a children's play area and large open fields. Also in the Park stands the Grade II Listed building which is the Greaves Park Hotel, a very popular place to dine.
Close by, you will find there are a number of popular schools, shops and amenities and the Lancaster Royal Infirmary and Universities are also not too far away.
As you take a stroll down Kensington Road and reach your private iron gate and steps leading to the front door, you'll immediately notice the pretty front garden slightly elevated and welcoming you to number 16.
This low maintenance and attractive welcome gives really special kerb appeal as you enter through the largely glazed, Upvc front door. Once inside you are greeted with a wide and spacious hallway entrance, affording access to all ground floor rooms and staircase leading to the upper floor.
The decoration within the hallway is soft, neutral and tasteful, with only maybe new carpet or flooring to be considered.
From the hallway and immediately to your left is the front facing living room. This particular reception room is spacious and light, largely due to the bay window allowing plenty of natural light in. Once more the decoration is soft and warm colours and you may only wish to change the flooring and fire surround within this room. Currently an electric fire sits centre to a wood panelled fire place and alcoves.
Next door and again to your left from the hallway, you will find yourself in a really great size dining room. With a feature fireplace being the focal point and dark wood laminate flooring, this 2nd reception room really is a great area for entertaining. Sliding patio doors give access out to the rear garden and there is the possibility of knocking through to the kitchen area next door to create a spacious and social kitchen/diner.
Back out in to the hallway and enter the final room on the ground floor, the kitchen. Whilst small and compact at present, it is certainly functional and in great condition. As mentioned the potential to open this room up to the dining room is there to be seen. Currently offering kitchen units, modern white splash back tiles and space for the necessary white goods, it may suit buyers in it's current format.
Bedrooms and bathroom
Once upstairs, notice the spacious landing in this home, giving access to all rooms on this floor. Straight ahead is the modern 3 piece bathroom offering toilet, wash basin and electric shower over a bath. Completely tiled for ease of cleaning and maintenance, this bathroom is in a great condition and also houses the electric water heater.
Next door, overlooking the rear garden is the first of two double bedrooms. Neutral decoration once more is present and an abundance of space for a double bed and furniture to suit. Next door and to the front of the property is the master bedroom. Currently offering built in storage and wardrobes, this room is a truly great size. A large bed and furniture wouldn't look out of place.
Finally overlooking the front of the house is the 3rd bedroom. Perfect as a child's room or study/office depending on your needs and requirements.
This home is blessed with easily maintainable front and rear gardens, whilst still displaying attractive qualities, kerb appeal and delightful areas to enjoy in the warmer months. The rear garden is private and secluded. the patio provides ample space to have table and chairs, plus a handy storage shed sits to the rear. Access out to the service road for your bins can also be achieved from this garden.
The front of the property benefits from further low maintenance gardens, plants and shrubbery sit either side of steps leading from the street up to your door. this really does make an attractive sight as you look upon the home.
