Where is South Rd?
Welcome to South Road, the gateway to the city, a street lined with fine beautiful period homes. A key feature is that the city centre is just a short stroll away. Lancaster Canal can be joined in just 300 yards providing pleasing walks into the countryside.
Two of Lancaster's key employers are close by, both Lancaster Royal Infirmary and the University of Cumbria are within walking distance. The renowned Lancaster Royal Boys and Girls Grammar Schools are in the neighbourhood. The education options when you live at South Road are excellent.
For those who commute, the train station is close by, you can be in Manchester under 1 hour and London in just 2.5 hours. Access to the M6 is relatively easy with both Junctions 33 and 34 under 3 miles away.
From the road itself, make your way through the iron gate and up to the attractive, colour coded front door, matching beautifully with the iron railings and gate. This home really does have kerb appeal.
Wander on through into the vestibule, the perfect area to hang your coats and store your shoes, before heading on through the internal door into the hallway. Notice the wonderful solid oak parquet flooring under your feet and the tasteful decoration to the walls.
Straight ahead are the carpeted stairs leading up to the 1st and 2nd floors, for now, we will take a left under the arched entrance into the living areas of the home.
The ground floor
Step into the middle reception room and immediately have your attention caught by the multi fuel burner in an attractive fire surround. Recesses either side, provide storage options and opportunity for displays. Under your feet notice the gorgeous original Yorkstone flooring, adding further charm to this warm and inviting room. Neatly tucked away to your right is access to both the stairs leading down to the cellar and a handy W.C.
Look to your left where the front facing living room can be found. The flooring changes to solid oak, blending wonderfully with the pleasing decoration and character features of the room. A large bay window looks out over your front garden and provides ample natural light within. A living flame effect gas fire provides the focal point to this cosy living room.
Head toward the rear of the home where the kitchen and dining space await. Oxidised slate to the floor and splashbacks provide a touch of class and elegance, encompassing the solid oak cabinetry and polished granite worktops. Two integrated freezers are present, along with a large range cooker and space for a washing machine and under counter fridge.
Around the corner is a handy dining area for entertaining family and friends. Imagine sitting round a table enjoying dinner next to the large bi-fold doors overlooking the rear garden.
1st floor and 2nd floor
Up to the first floor and let us explore the two bedrooms and family bathroom. Straight ahead is the quite simply stunning bathroom. Modern, crisp colours adorn the walls, blending effortlessly with the tall ceiling and exposed beams, creating a rather unique setting for a bathroom. The white 3 piece suite works well against the contemporary greys and whites, and the dual aspect windows provide an abundance of natural light within.
To your right, along the landing, is the first of 3 double bedrooms. Pleasant decoration and ample space for a double bed and furniture to suit, ensure a fantastic room to use. Further down the landing and you are blessed with a larger double bedroom, overlooking the front elevation. Contemporary decoration and plenty of integrated storage is available in this great sized double bedroom.
Head up to the second floor and take a right into the single bedroom. Currently being used as a study/office, it lends itself perfectly for this. Alternatively, it would be a fantastic child's bedroom or guest room, depending on your needs.
To the front of the home is the master bedroom. Benefitting from ample internal storage to your left upon entering, there is the option to take this out and extend this particular room back to it's original dimensions. An en-suite shower room sits to one side. This master bedroom is the perfect get away after a long day at work.
Rear garden and cellar
Accessed from the middle reception room on the ground floor, is the stairs down to the cellar. An expansive area under the front living room, perfect for storage.
Accessed via a gated side passage is the beautifully landscaped rear garden is an absolute delight. Gorgeous flag stones await you, upon walking out of the bi-fold doors to the rear of the home. The first of many areas to sit at a table and chairs as you enjoy this space during the warmer months.
Step down and find a quaint little area for further usage, with artificial grass under your feet. Further back still and you are blessed with a raised decking area for seating and a handy storage outhouse for gardening equipment.
The entire garden is surrounded by walls with a stone wall to the rear and well established plants, trees and flowers, making this one of the most attractive city centre gardens we have come across.
