Where is Westbourne Rd?
No. 47 Westbourne Road is a beautiful period home in an exceptional location just minutes away from the city centre. This area is known as Fairfield.
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.
Set back slightly from Westbourne Road itself, wander through the iron gate, noticing the secluded little front garden before taking a couple of steps up to the front door of this wonderful period home.
You'll find yourself within a handy vestibule, displaying signs of character features from this particular period. Hang up your coats and store your shoes away before continuing on through the internal door into the hallway.
The light, bright and neutral decoration is inviting and beautiful wood flooring greets you as you head down the hallway. Access to the upper floors is achieved via the staircase to your left as is access into all the ground floor rooms.
Ground floor rooms
The 1st of two reception rooms awaits on your right, just follow the gorgeous stained wood flooring into a bright, spacious and character filled front room. The large bay window allows so much light within, working effortlessly with the charming decoration present. Recesses provide space for book shelves and furniture - either side of the attractive flame effect gas fire with eye catching surround. This room would be perfect as a relaxing lounge for the family or even a dining space to entertain friends and family. It's up to you.
Back out to the central hallway and head toward the rear of this stunning home. Enter the 2nd reception room, benefiting from the same light and neutral decoration to 2 of the walls and a stylish feature paper to the other walls. The same gorgeous exposed flooring is present, along with a deep window looking out over the rear yard, providing the natural daylight. For those colder nights, a wood burner sits proudly in a stone fireplace with modern surround.
Further still to the rear of the home is the large kitchen/diner. This is a great space for entertaining family and friends. Slate tile floors and light decoration make this an inviting space to enter, combining with the gorgeous cabinetry and contemporary splash back tiles. Plenty of room is afforded for a large dining table, along with a separate utility area to the far end. Access out into the private rear yard is achieved via a part glazed uPVC door.
Bedrooms and bathroom
As you walk up the stairs to the 1st floor, continue to the far end of the home, here you will find the large family bathroom. Consisting of an ultra modern 5 piece suite, hotel 'esque in it's appearance - you have a separate bath, walk in double shower, low flush toilet and even his and her's wash basins. The combi boiler for the property is located within this room, cleverly hidden away.
Back out onto the grand landing space and head back toward the centre of the property, on your left you will see a great sized double bedroom. Currently being used as a child's nursery, a double bed and furniture would not look out of place. Further still to the front of the home and you will find yourself within the grand and spacious master bedroom. Large windows overlook the front allows plenty of natural light within. The beautiful exposed and treated floorboards make a welcomed return and space for a large double bed plus furniture is available - making this a truly brilliant master bedroom to retire to come the evening.
Take the second staircase up to the second floor where a further two bedrooms can be found. The first to the rear would be perfect as a child's bedroom, guest room or study, depending on your needs and is kept light and airy due to the decoration and double skylights within. The 2nd bedroom on this floor is truly wonderful. Space for a double bed and furniture is provided, but what sets it apart is the dormer window allowing a desk/dressing table to sit. Offering views over the rooftops for miles.
Outside space and cellar
Accessed from the rear kitchen/diner door - you have a delightful space to enjoy during the warmer months. Room enough for table and chairs and a few potted plants - it's a lovely area to relax in.
Accessed from in between the kitchen and 2nd reception room is the cellar. Perfect for all your storage needs.
