Dunkenshaw Crescent is a cul de sac in the popular South Lancaster location of Hala. The cul de sac is tucked away with green space behind making it a quiet and peaceful place to come home to. It is incredibly convenient for academics or anyone working at the University as both the "back road" and the cycle path are adjacent. If work takes you further afield the M6, Junction 33, is just a few minutes drive. Whilst peaceful, the area has plenty of local amenities with some popular "foody" pubs nearby and also a local Booths Supermarket for life's essentials. Hala is close to some very popular primary schools such as Moorside and St Bernadette's Catholic as well as easily accessible to Lancaster's grammar schools.
This detached house sits on a generous plot offering plenty of off-road parking and a rear garage. The mature front flower bed with stunning Japanese Maple creates screening for privacy. The rear garden is generous and backs onto green space. With three bedrooms there is opportunity for a functional home office and the addition of a conservatory to the ground floor creates plenty of light and usable living space. There is a hallway, lounge, dining room, fitted kitchen and upstairs a modern bathroom. The bathroom was updated just a few years ago and a new fire installed in the lounge during the last year. The house also has a new (2016) Vaillant EcoTech combination boiler efficiently powering the hot water and central heating. Other recent improvements include a new garage roof, new uPVC weatherboards and a new oven and grill. This is a well looked after home in a great area!

The lounge has a flame effect electric fire with a contemporary wooden surround. Decor is neutral and light and the room looks out over the front of the property.
