Where is Westbourne Rd?
Fairfield is in demand. This is an area of the city which is noted for its greenery. It's home to many of Lancaster's academics and professionals, many of whom choose to live here for the convenience city life offers combined with benefits of living in an area with protected green spaces. It's a sought after location. Fairfield is after all, home to the nature reserve and also a community orchard.
Live in Fairfield and you can walk into the city centre. Lancaster train station is under 1/4 mile with direct connections to both Manchester, London, Glasgow and Edinburgh. The area is in the catchment area of many highly regarded schools including both the Boys and Girls Grammar School.
As you walk toward number 9 Westbourne Road, along this delightful, tree lined street - make your way through the iron gate up to the attractive, composite door. Once inside find yourself in a handy vestibule before continuing on into the main hallway via a part glazed internal door.
Wood laminate flooring can be found under your feet, blending nicely with the soft neutral decor and original Victorian features above. Straight ahead you will see the carpeted stairs leading to the 1st floor and to your right, access into all ground floor rooms.
The ground floor rooms
From the hallway, enter into the dining room. A fantastic space, decorated in a stylish and tasteful way. It has been knocked through to the adjoining living room, creating a bright and open plan area to enjoy. The large bay window to the front allows an abundance of natural light within. The French doors opposite, leading out to the rear yard, add even more light to this part of the house.
So much room is afforded to create a brilliant family, lounge/diner. It would be ideal for entertaining guests. Gas flame effect fires, sit in both rooms, both within attractive surrounds and feature walls. The rooms are finished with gorgeous wood effect laminate flooring, really complimenting the simplistic and pleasing decoration within.
Toward the rear of the home you will find a modern shaker style kitchen. So much room is available in here, including plenty of preparation areas, cabinetry and space for all the necessary white goods you would need. There is even space to casually dine or sit with a brew in the morning. Just beyond the kitchen is a pantry, perfect for further storage or even the potential to be a separate utility room.
Bedrooms and bathroom
Once you have reached the top of the stairs, continue to the rear of the home where you will find the first of 3 bedrooms. Elegantly decorated and offering room enough for a double bed, this bedroom is kept light and airy thanks to the large window overlooking the rear.
Next door we have the family bathroom, comprising of a modern p-shaped bath with rainfall shower, low flush toilet and wash basin. There is very much a ‘boutique hotel’ feel to this bathroom, what with the gorgeous large tiles to the walls and equally impressive tiled floor. A heated towel rail completes the room.
To the middle of the house is the 2nd bedroom. A great size, easily accommodating a double bed and furniture to suit. Once more the decoration is tasteful, and natural light floods in through the large window overlooking the rear of the home.
Along the landing heading toward the front elevation, notice handy storage to your right, just before entering the master bedroom. This glorious master, comes complete with built in storage and a modern fitted en-suite shower room. The large bay window adds a sense of extra space and airiness. More than enough room remains for further furniture and a king size bed. You’ll find it difficult to leave this room, as it’s so inviting and relaxing.
The cellar and outside space
Accessed from the kitchen is the cellar. With copious amounts of storage room down here and fantastic head room, you may wish to convert this space into something more.
The rear yard faces south and is accessed from the utility/pantry room and dining room via the French doors. Decked steps from here, lead to the yard, an area perfect for sitting and enjoying the afternoon sunshine.
A gate allows access to the service road behind.
