Full description

Fisher Wrathall are delighted to offer this stone built, detached double fronted property for sale. Built in the 1890's, it has been well maintained and lovingly cared for by the current owner and the original Victorian graciousness still remains. It is true, some upgrading may be needed, but the encaustic tiled floor, decorative plaster mouldings, ceiling roses and full length sash windows give the property it's historic charm. The rooms are spacious, light and airy. Sitting in a substantial plot, the manicured gardens wrap neatly around the house, giving an array of colour and privacy, the sweeping driveway is lined with colourful trees and shrubs giving lots of space for parking.

Location - Privately tucked away from view this detached home sits quietly behind the trees and hedgerows as we drive along Hest Bank Lane. The heart of the village is just a short drive away with a welcoming community spirit, local groups and activities. The pubs are a great attraction serving delicious food and drink and create a meeting place for friends and families. There is a local church group, primary school and local village store. Deepdene is surrounded by green fields and countryside, with views to the front and gardens to the rear, the canal towpath runs close by for those loving to walk or cycle. Just off the main A6 as we leave Lancaster towards Bolton-le-sands. The new link road has opened up the travel links to the M6 motorway at junction 34 and the main bus route to and from Lancaster offers regular transport to the city.

Kitchen - You will say, 'it needs a new kitchen!' we know this, but it is a great size and has lots of potential, with high ceilings, a large sash window, built in storage and a selection of high and low level units with space for appliances. A stainless steel sink and drainer with white tiled splash backs and white painted decoration. An attraction in the kitchen, the original bell indicator which told the servants which room was ringing. Disconnected by the current owners when their children were small as they were fascinated by it and rang it all the time!

Hallway - Leading through from the front of the house, the hallway is very bright and airy. The glass panelled front door allows the natural sun light to meander it's way though and it complements the coloured, original encaustic tiling in blues and browns. A carved newel post and mahogany hand rail gives subtle contrast to the soft Grey decoration and panelled walls.

Lounge - As we wander in from the hallway we cannot help but notice the brightness of this spacious lounge. The large bay window stretching from floor to ceiling gives lots of natural daylight and the original features give a Victorian graciousness to this period property. We love the wooden floors, the ornamental oak fireplace, the soft decoration with white painted plaster mouldings. The room has lots of space for furniture and an outlook to the front of the property where the neatly manicured gardens can be enjoyed.

Dining Room - A large spacious room with high ceilings and decorative coving. Lots of natural daylight comes from the sash bay window along the front wall which allows us to take in the view of the trees and shrubs planted to the front of the house. There is a second window to the side adding further light. The room has plenty of floorspace for furniture and has painted wooden floorboards running through. There is a dark oak fire surround with cast iron inset complimented by a coloured tiled hearth. The main feature of this room will be the Gillow wood panelling which you will want to keep (Gillow of Lancaster were founded in 1730 and were based on the back of the lucrative slave trade and became well known furniture makers throughout the country, importing mahogany from Jamaica they have a huge and priceless collection on display in the Judges Lodgings)

Conservatory - Running along the back of the house, a lean to conservatory gives extra space for sitting with a good book and enjoying the afternoon sunshine. It is quiet and peaceful, the planted trees and shrubs give privacy and screening as the driveway sweeps in from the road. A little room at the end gives ideal space for hanging coats and boots.

Wet Room - A walk in wet room with a mains shower, low level WC and hand basin. Mainly tiled in soft Grey with a decorative tiled trim, electric extractor, heated towel rail, frosted window and non-slip flooring.. A handy room to have downstairs.....especially if there are children about, running in from the garden.

Stairs And Landing - As we move upstairs an impressive leaded window from Shrigley and Hunt, (one of the finest 19th century stained glass makers in the country whose main studios were in Lancaster and London) with creative colour and design is waiting at the top. We can branch off left or right where wood panelled doors take us into each of the rooms. There is a large walk in airing cupboard with the water heater and shelving for storage. Large windows make this area bright and airy which gives a feeling of grandeur as move through the house.

Bedroom 1 - A good sized double room with dual aspect sash windows. Decoration is neutral and the alcove has shelving for books and ornaments.

Bathroom - A larger than average room with an enamel bath and handbasin. The WC is separate and just next door, which is always handy! The shower sits over the bath, but there is plenty of space to add a cubicle. Another room which will need upgrading, but the space is there to create a modern stylish bath/shower room designed to your own taste.

Bedroom 2 - Currently used as the main, this is a large room with lots of space for added furniture. The wardrobes are built in and there is a vanity cabinet and dressing table to match. Dual aspect windows make this room bright and airy and the out look to the front is over green fields and countryside.
