  • Sitting room with wood burner
  • Four bedrooms, bathroom, cloakroom

With a surprisingly large rear garden, this handsome detached house dates to the 1950s and offers attractively upgraded and presented accommodation which will suit families and couples alike. Purchased in 1997, No.34 has been improved in the intervening years; windows, soffit and fascia boards are all PVC, the front and back doors are both composite, the bathroom and cloakroom fittings have been replaced and there’s a super and very stylish fitted kitchen.

The entrance hall is lovely and wide, off which is a downstairs cloakroom with two piece suite. Double fronted, to the left a sitting room stretches front to back with bi-folding doors opening to the rear garden and a welcoming wood burning stove. To the right the kitchen and dining room have been combined to create a sociable living space offering room to cook, eat (either at the breakfast bar or dining table) and relax on soft seats. The kitchen was refitted in 2020 with a sleek and contemporary range of high gloss units with quartz worktops. There’s a NEFF hob, Elica extractor fan, Belling double oven and grill. The rear vestibule offers a route out to the back garden and also into the single garage (with fitted workbench) and utility room which houses the boiler, pot sink and has ample space for a condenser tumble drier as well as general storage. Leading off the airy first floor landing are four bedrooms (three doubles and a single room) and a house bathroom. The bath has a power shower over (as well as a second hand held head for when bathing), floating wash basin and a loo. Tiled walls and chrome fittings complete the picture.

There is a lapsed planning permission (reference 15/00575/FUL dated 2/7/15) to demolish the existing garage and utility room and replace it with “a single storey extension to the side and rear elevations.” The plans show this to comprise a workshop, shower room, dry room and utility room. Plans may be viewed on Lancaster City Council’s website.

The front garden has been landscaped to provide an in and out drive with a planted border between the two. The back garden is an absolute delight, with a large level lawn it is a great space for a family. With hedged and fenced boundaries there are two wooden sheds (power and light to both), a log store (with light) and a greenhouse. An attractive feature is the garden pergola, a solid structure providing sheltered and shaded seating when needed. There are first floor views of the Lakeland fells between neighbouring houses and the sunsets from the rooms on the rear elevation and garden are absolutely lovely.

This is an accessible place to live being handy for local services. Situated in the popular village of Bolton-le-Sands, Greenwood Avenue is close to all local amenities including the Sports and Recreation Pavilion (with tennis courts and a children’s playground), post office, library, doctors and pharmacy, a number of shops, and a hairdressing salon. There is a variety of places to eat and drink, including The Royal Hotel or Hest Bank Hotel (both accessible off the canal tow path), Trungs, the Far Pavillion and the Packet Bridge Fish and Chips are all in Bolton-le-Sands as well as a couple of pubs in nearby Slyne. Primary schools are in the village and adjacent Slyne-with- Hest, the house is also within the catchment area for the Grammar Schools and Ripley St Thomas CoE Academy, all in Lancaster.

Bolton-le-Sands is highly accessible with regular bus services, Lancaster and Carnforth train stations and access to the M6 motorway nearby at either J34 (Lancaster) or 35 (Carnforth) depending on the direction of travel (both reachable in under 4.5 miles). Whether you are traveling for business or pleasure, from Lancaster both London (Euston) and Edinburgh are reachable by train in under 2 hours 30 minutes and Manchester in just less than an hour.
