Welcome to Portland Street, a residential City Centre street which is always in high demand.
Live here and you can walk in to the City Centre and enjoy the vibrant cultural mix that living in a University city offers. Why not stop and enjoy a coffee at Atkinson's Coffee shop before exploring the Independent shops and boutiques? Filberts bakery for daily fresh bread is almost on your doorstep.
Enjoy dinner at The Borough. Take a stroll around the city and enjoy one of the many museums, theaters or even go to the cinema. Take a stroll along the canal, enjoying a drink at one of the canal's wine bars or grab your bicycle and cycle into the countryside. It's all easily possible when you live here.
Lancaster train station is just a 5-minute walk connecting Lancaster to London in just over 2 hours.
Families will also be pleased to know that many of the area's top schools are in the catchment area including Dallas Road Primary School and both the Boys and Girls Grammar Schools.
Make your way through the iron gate and up the steps into Number 10 Portland Street. Immediately upon entering you will notice how light and bright this home is, rare for a terraced house.
The welcoming entrance hall allows access to all three main ground floor rooms and the stairs straight ahead lead you up to the upper floors.
First, let's start with the stunning lounge...
The Ground Floor Living
The sophisticated premium living space is one which will appeal to many. The large bay window floods the room with natural light. The decor is soft and neutral, with a pop of color at the fireplace, creating a contemporary yet traditional feel. The original cornicing is intact and the ceilings are high. There is a real sense of space.
Adjacent to the living room is the dining room. The dining room looks out into the rear garden and will be the perfect space to enjoy a sit down meal with the family in the evenings. French doors open up and allow for the air to flow freely throughout the space. Wonderful for having open on those warm summer days.
The kitchen, located to the rear of the home, is modern and well appointed. Cream high-gloss units allow for ample storage space and there is plenty of room for all necessary appliances. To the rear of the kitchen is the extensive utility space, a very handy room with extra storage and room for a washing machine and tumble drier.
The Upper Floors
Up on the first floor you will find two of the three bedrooms and the family bathroom. The master bedroom is located to the front of the home and spans the full width of the property. The decor is soft and neutral, creating a tranquil setting which is ideal for relaxing and unwinding.
The second bedroom located on the first floor is the smallest of the three but is still a generous sized double bedroom. The room enjoys a pleasing outlook over the rear of the property. The soft and neutral decor is continued through this space, ready to be made your own.
The family bathroom is one you will fall in love with. Contemporary yet classic in design, this room has been cleverly designed to be in keeping with the property but with modern twists. Home to a three piece white suite which is completed with a shower above the double ended bath. The large airing cupboard in the bathroom is fantastic for storing towels and linen.
Take the second set of stairs up to the second floor. Here, you will find the third bedroom which spans the whole top floor of the home. You're bound to fall in love with this room, the Velux window provides stunning views across Lancaster's rooftops and across to Williamsons Park and the Town Hall in the distance. There is ample built in storage and access to the eaves from this room.
The cellar access is just off the kitchen. The cellar spans the space under the living room and is generous in size, fantastic for storage. There is power and light and the cellar is also home to the property's meters.
If you're looking for a project why not look at converting this space!
Your private yard to the rear is bigger than most, given the position of this particular home. It would be easy enough to create a little oasis outside, think potted plants and garden furniture and it would be an ideal sunny west facing retreat.
