It's aways hard to strike a balance between a contemporary finish and a period home.
However, in my opinion the sellers of this beautiful home have it absolutely spot on.
Central to the design of the home is the open plan kitchen family room and it's easy to see how this is the hub of the home and family life. It offers more than enough space for sitting, cooking, and dining.
It's an ideal space for summer parties as the doors open to the garden entertaining area, seamlessly linking the outside and inside. The addition of the log burner offers another dimension making this an ideal spot for cosy winter nights in front of the fire.
No matter the season this room is always flooded with natural light and that gives it a natural draw for people to sit, chat and catch up.
If cooking or baking is your thing then to me you will be blown away by the kitchen. It has everything you need for cooking up a storm for family and friends. With an abundance of storage, the all-important island and a range of mood lighting the sellers have executed the designed with pinpoint accuracy.
The hallway offers a glimpse of the homes past with a range of painstakingly restored original features including but not limited to skirting boards, door frames and decorative plasterwork.
To the left of the hallway is the bay fronted formal lounge, again with a wealth of original features. With the rear room being such a communal space, the lounge is sure to become the "best" room.
All three of the bedrooms are doubles meaning no one get the small room and if you are looking to downsize this offers a range of options for guests.
The bathroom caters for all with a bath and separate shower. It has been refitted to the highest standards much like the rest of the home.
When we get into the garden this is where the property gets more intriguing. The landscaping is such that there are places for the whole family. There are two seating areas to take account of the sun, a lawn area for the children to play as well as a space for the hot tub. This int to mention the raised beds and range of mature shrubs and trees. I would guess that this garden would easily become the go to place for your friends and family this summer.
The garden room offers even more space and is currently used as a bar, games room and entertaining space. There is also an additional room (currently a gym), WC and store area.
These spaces could be used in a variety of ways to to suit your needs. One room that we see more and more in demand is a home office with space for two people to work from home. The garden room here could easily accommodate that and more. Or if you have teenage children it could become a safe haven for them to hang out with friends.
To the front of the home, there is ample parking for 3 cars, which could easily be increased to 5 cars with some small changes-this is unusual in this part of Fulwood. There is also a bus route for Lancaster Grammar School which stops very close to the home.
