Meadow Park, Galgate - a beautiful canal side location

Where is Meadow Park

Welcome to the Meadow Park, a quiet unassuming home set at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac in the village of Galgate. From the front, you would never know the secret that this home holds. But as you head down the driveway and discover the extensive garden with canal frontage, you'll quickly understand why we think this home is so special.

If lockdown has taught us anything, it is the importance of a sense of community and outside space. This is a great semi rural village - it actually came 2nd place as the best village to bring up children in 2011. The village is bustling with life. The local primary school is highly regarded and there are a variety of shops in the village. There are also two popular dining pubs. Many community events are held at the local village hall, along with a variety of activities for all age ranges.

Live here and you are just 4 miles South of the city centre and just 1.5 miles from the university. Commuters also enjoy the fact that the M6 junction 33, is just a 4 minute drive!

Lancaster Canal runs through Galgate, right past the end of this home's garden. In fact the previous owners' parents used to keep their boat moored here. This truly is a special home in a very enviable position.

Step inside

As you pull up outside Meadow Park, take a moment to take in your surroundings. This home is at the end of a quiet -cul-de-sac. It's peaceful and also family friendly. Take a close look at the outside and note how this is an exceptionally well maintained home.

Follow the block paved driveway, as it leads to the path that takes you to the main entrance. Step in through the Upvc double glazed door and into the L-shaped hallway. This home has been cleverly altered, creating a larger, more welcoming hallway. There is even a ground floor WC with cloaks room - perfect when guests can visit.

The ground floor living

The beautiful lounge and fabulous sun room are to the rear of the property. As you step inside, try and tear your eyes from the fabulous views over the extensive garden and canal. You'll soon be memorized as you stare out waiting for a canal boat to sail past , or a duck or swan to swim by.

Book shelves span one wall of this living room.

Patio doors slide open from the living room into the sun room. Imagine reading the Sunday newspapers overlooking the stunning gardens. Come the evening settle down with a glass of wine and enjoy watching the sun set over the canal.

To the front of the home you'll find the dining room. It is versatile. You could use it as study to work from home, a 2nd sitting room, a child's play room or even a 4th bedroom. The choice is yours! This rooms has also been newly carpeted and benefits from having a built in cupboard and shelves.

Next is the kitchen. It is light and airy fitted with cream shaker style cupboards and an outlook towards the garden. It's not a bad view to enjoy whilst washing up! A double Neff oven and halogen hob are both built in along with a dishwasher and fridge/freezer. The vendor will also leave the washing machine. The glass door leads you back through to the sun room.

A ground floor bedroom which has been newly carpeted and useful ground floor WC which is ideal for visiting guests complete the ground floor accommodation.

The upstairs

To the first floor there are 2 double bedrooms and a stylish 3-piece shower room complete with a double walk in shower cubicle which is beautifully tiled and features a walnut laminate floor. The master bedroom is to the front. It has recently been professionally decorated and has had a new carpet fitted. This room has a open outlook - looking straight down the street, over the roof tops and towards the hills.

Both of the bedrooms are light and airy with large picture windows which flood the rooms with light.

The storage

Did you know? This home has lots of storage. Under the house there is a large walk in area. In the past it has been used as a workshop. The gas combination boiler is also located here. There are two loft eaves which can be accessed from the bathroom which is boarded and complete with light and main bedroom. There is also a cupboard in the downstairs WC, which is very handy.

The gardens and canal

Are you a keen gardener? The gardens of this home belong on the pages of a magazine. There are both sunny and shaded seating areas. Catch the sun on the paved patio. Enjoy dappled sunshine under the large specimen tree watching the canal boats gently sail past.

The garden has been carefully thought out and it is one which you will want to explore. Large gunnera's and hosta's provide year round colour and interest.

Follow the solar lights that are dotted along the stone path which leads to the canal. Cross the stream which runs through the garden. Will you choose the bridge or the stepping stones?

Not many homes can boast a canal frontage like this. Nor can they boast open rural views. This is an idyllic garden which attracts wildlife. Ducks, swans pheasants and herons are regular visitors. The kingfisher perches on the branch just over the stream. Did we mention that you can also moor your canal boat at the end of your garden?
