Where is Shaftesbury Place?
Shaftesbury Place is located on a tucked away cul-de-sac, just off Piccadilly in Scotforth, South Lancaster. It really is a fabulous setting in an enviable location. Enjoy the glorious views over Lancaster towards Morecambe Bay and relax on the sun terrace from the living room.
Residents enjoy the excellent local amenities on offer. Booths Supermarket is less than 0.5 miles away. Excellent local schools are in the vicinity from Scotforth Primary School through to the renowned grammar schools. Many of the area's key employers, including Lancaster's two universities, are close by.
Whether you are strolling down the long driveway or parking up your car, the approach to Shaftesbury Place is wonderful. Set right into the corner of this already private and peaceful cul-de-sac, you will begin to see the views on offer to your left.
Take a few steps down onto the front patio area, perfect for a table and chairs and either enter the home via the kitchen/utility door or a little further along to the main entrance. We shall enter via the large main entrance door and into the hallway.
Upon entering, notice a spacious hallway decorated in light and tasteful tones. A handy W.C sits directly ahead and access into all ground floor rooms is afforded, including the stairs to the 1st floor attic room.
The ground floor rooms
As we continue down the hallway, to your right you will find the family bathroom. Comprising of a 5 piece suite - a cubicle shower, large raised bath, toilet, wash basin and bidet. The walls are fully tiled for convenience and a window to the side elevation, allows natural light within.
Back out and take a further right into the master bedroom. So much space is on offer within here. A large double bed can be accommodated, along with additional furniture to suit. A gorgeous, modern en-suite shower room sits to the right and is finished to a high standard.
Next we have two great sized double bedrooms, sat across from each other, as we head down the hallway toward the front of the home. Both offer more than enough space for a double bed and further furniture. You may choose to update the decoration in these two bedrooms. Both have large windows for natural light to flood in, one overlooking the side gardens and views beyond and the other to the private driveway.
Straight to the end of the hallway you will find a spacious kitchen with casual dining space. Once more, whilst this kitchen has been kept in a great condition, you may wish to put your own stamp on this room with modern kitchen units. Conveniently, there is a large utility room to take advantage of, just off the kitchen. A door to the front garden is located here.
Head back the way you came, down the hallway and take a left toward the living room, dining room and study. The first room on your right would make a brilliant study area and has been used as this by the previous owners. To your left and through the part glazed double doors - in here you will find a spacious dining room, perfect for entertaining family and friends. Carry on through the concertina doors into the quite simply stunning living room. In here you will find so much space to use...large corner sofa maybe? Separate comfy arm chairs?? - all facing two sets of French doors leading out to the sun terrace/balcony.
What a joy it would be to open up these doors and bring the outside in. Plenty of space is afforded for terrace furniture, meaning sitting out on a summer's eve will be glorious. Just take in those views!
The spacious converted attic
Accessed from a fixed, wide staircase and just off the central hallway is the converted attic room. This really is one of the largest we have come across in a bungalow. Currently being used as a spare bedroom and hobby area, it even has its own private en-suite bathroom.
Skylights allow plenty of natural light within, complementing the light and fresh decoration present. This would be an ideal bedroom for a teenager or maybe even as an enviable guest room for family and friends.
The gardens, views and garage
The views from the side elevation are really something. Gaze for miles out toward the rooftops of South Lancaster, with the lush greenery and trees in the foreground. It really does give you a feeling of serenity when taking it all in.
The gardens at Shaftesbury wrap around the home itself and offer a number of different areas to enjoy. Mainly laid to lawn to the rear and side, there is a patio area to the front, perfect for garden furniture.
At the end of the long driveway, you will find a huge double garage. Within here you will find so much space for either parking your cars or simply used as additional storage. The modern condensing boiler is also located within here. This fantastic garage is accessed via an electric up and over door.
