Scotforth is one of Lancaster's most sought after residential areas. South of the city centre yet within a short drive/walk of it, Scotforth benefits from a diverse mix of homes and properties from the old to the new, the small to the large, therefore it benefits from a diverse mix of residents ranging from the first time buyer to the retired!
There's an excellent range of shops and amenities and some of the area's most sought after schools are in the neighbourhood. Booths supermarket is also a stones throw away. It is well serviced by public transport and is perfectly placed for access to the city's major employers, the universities and the Royal Lancaster Infirmary.
Looking down the long and private driveway toward the home itself, you will notice the beautiful and well established garden to your left. It really creates a private and secluded entrance offering ample parking off road and access to the rear and garage.
Step through the outer doors in to the handy vestibule area, perfect for storing your coats and shoes before entering the main hallway via a gorgeous part glazed inner door.
From this inviting entrance hallway, you are granted access to all ground floor rooms and of course the bedrooms and bathroom via the staircase. The decoration throughout this home is soft and neutral. The home also retains the original coving and picture rails to the reception rooms and the bedrooms which is a lovely feature.
The ground floor living
From the hallway, take a left in to the first reception room. The high ceilings, the huge bay window, the picture rails and fireplace - it's just such a lovely and comfortable room to enjoy. Overlooking the stunning front garden, the bay window allows so much natural light within. The current owner has kept the entire house in such good condition.
Back out to the hallway, head a little further toward the rear of the home and take another left in to the second reception room. This fantastic space is so light and airy, due primarily to the extension to the rear. Space to dine is afforded and a wonderful area to relax in the conservatory extension. French doors lead out to the back garden, also providing so much natural light within. It's the perfect area to sit with a book and relax.
Next door we have the kitchen. Boasting modern sage units, worktop surfaces and space for all the usual white goods. A large windows looks out on to the green and lush driveway as you wash the pots, and a rear door leads to the handy utility area and back door.
The first floor
Up the carpeted stairs to the bedrooms and bathroom. To your right is the modern fitted shower room - comprising of a large corner, walk in shower, low flush toilet and wash basin. This shower room is in fantastic condition.
Next door and overlooking the rear of the property is the 1st of two great sized double bedrooms. Neutrally decorated and benefiting from built in wardrobes, this spacious double bedroom is kept light and airy thanks to the large window overlooking the rear garden.
Looking out over the delightful front garden is the master bedroom. Once more, an impressive bay window allows natural light to flood in and brighten the room. Recesses either side of the chimney breast are fitted wardrobes. The sheer amount of space available within this room guarantees plenty of options for a large double bed and furniture to suit.
Finally, we have the third bedroom of the home. A really good size once more. Space enough for a single bed and furniture if required but also equally suited as a study/office - it really depends on your needs.
The gardens and off street parking
The beautiful gardens to the front and rear are really something special. So well established - they both provide peaceful and green areas to enjoy. The driveway can easily accommodate 3 cars for off road parking and the separate garage provides ample storage options.
