Scotforth Road is the main southern route into Lancaster and has traditionally been a sought after address. These large, bay fronted Victorian villas were built to impress. The elevated position keeps traffic noise to a minimum and affords superb views over Lancaster looking west over roof tops towards the bay and the setting sun. The generous plots mean gardens are great advantage to these houses, few have the private garden No 25 enjoys though. Scotforth is well served with local shops and amenities. There is bakery and dry cleaners amongst plenty of others and Booths supermarket is just up the road. Popular local schools include St Paul's Primary School, Ripley St. Thomas and of course both of Lancaster's grammar schools. The University is easily accessed and the city centre with a wealth of amenities including the main line train station and Royal Lancaster Infirmary is just a walk away passing the scenic Greaves Park on the way.
This impressive period property retains character features including stripped pine doors in places, restored stained glass work and mosaic tiles to the vestibule. There are several impressive fireplaces and the rear garden being private and generous is a really unusual feature. Downstairs you will find a generous front room with bay window overlooking the front garden. The rear reception room has a French Door to the garden and impressive fireplace. There is a morning room with original built in cupboards and access to the cellar. At the back a modern kitchen also opens to the rear garden. The garden provides real potential for this house in the future. On the first floor are two double bedrooms, a bathroom and a modern shower room. On the second floor a further three double bedrooms with the two at the front enjoying fabulous views over the roof tops of south Lancaster towards Morecambe Bay. At the back there is access to the private garage.
