Queen St. is situated just outside the city centre and a couple of minutes walk from the canal. A short stroll in either direction takes you to the shops and restaurants of Lancaster or the Nature Reserve at Fairfield and Aldcliffe Village, Not only that but the Girls and Boys Grammar schools are equally near along with Ripley CofE School and good local Primary’s. The location really is something special.
22 Queen St was built as one of a pair of houses in the Georgian period. It sits at the top of the street, very near to the canal and with an amazing view of the Ashton Memorial from the main bedroom. Over the last 5 years the owner has carried out a full renovation with a new boiler, consumer unit, plastering, repointing and full decoration. Original floorboards and shutters have been restored, the chimneys relined and a multi-fuel stove fitted in the family room. A new handbuilt kitchen was commissioned with integrated appliances and an Esse Range cooker fitted. Original, renovated sash windows let natural light pour into the house. On a winter evening the shutters keep the house cosy and secure, in summer they keep out the glare of the sun.
The ground floor reception room with its wood burning stove makes a perfect snug and opens onto the kitchen with internal half glass doors to maximise the space for family occasions. It has also been used as a dining room on occasion. The kitchen really is the heart of the house with a great space to sit and chat over food or coffee.
The first floor sitting room would have been the original reception room and the large sash windows and elegant proportions reflect this. A working fireplace with a beautiful surround further enhances the room. Also on this floor is the first bedroom which includes a dressing area leading to a large and stylish en-suite bathroom. The window from this room looks out onto lush gardens. On the second floor are two further bedrooms and a newly fitted shower room. The main bedroom mirrors the sitting room below in size and windows and has a wonderful view of the Ashton Memorial.
On the top floor is the attic room, this is a great space covering the width of the house and has original beams and a velux window with views over the rooftops as far as the castle.
The rear courtyard garden was landscaped two years ago with raised stone beds full of mature plants and a lovely rambling rose growing over the pergola. Indian stone setts add interest whilst the original pump for the house is still in situ.
