Big 2 bed ground-floor flat+garden, in city centre
This is a very large, furnished, 2 bedroom flat with one very big double bedroom and one smaller double bedroom.
I will put some more photos on the ad when they are available. The first one that I have put on shows the outside of the building, which is at the top of Church Street, right by the castle. I've also included a picture showing the view of the castle from the front of the flat.
The flat has a very large sitting room with sofa and armchair and which also has a dining table and chairs. It's a grand, south facing room with large windows that face the street and an impressive polished wood fire surround.
The rest of the main rooms face towards the back of the building, with views onto the building's large, quiet and peaceful garden, part of which belongs to my flat. The back door opens from the kitchen and provides access to the patio, where there is a table, and there is also a lawned area.
The kitchen is located in the middle of the flat and has an electric cooker, fridge freezer, dishwasher, washing machine and kettle. There is enough room for a small table if required. There is a laundry drying rack which can easily be lowered from the ceiling using a rope and pulleys. There is also room to dry laundry outside and store bikes space etc..
The very large double bedroom has a double bed, bedside cupboards, desk, double wardrobe and chest of drawers. The room is so big that even with all this furniture it is still really spacious! This bedroom has direct access to a large bathroom with bath, toilet, basin and walk-in shower cubicle.
The smaller double bedroom has a double wardrobe and 2 small chests of drawers. There is room for a double bed, although the one that is there at the moment belongs to my tenant. This bedroom has an ensuite shower room.
The kitchen has a cooker, microwave oven, kettle, and fridge/freezer and there is a separate small utility room with a washing machine. There is an airer that can be lowered on pulleys from the kitchen ceiling, to dry laundry on. Clean bedding, towels, kitchen equipment, crockery, cutlery etc. are also provided for use if wanted.
The entrance lobby has room for storage of coats, shoes etc. and there is also storage space in a built-in cupboard in the smaller bedroom and a cupboard above the shower room.
Heating and hot water are provided by a modern, efficient, gas boiler. Bills for gas, electricity, water, telephone, internet, TV and council tax are not included.
The house is quiet and so the flat would suit people who are also quiet and civilised - possibly a postgraduate student/couple or visiting researcher/s with a child, or two postgrads sharing? Please note that it is not available on separate tenancy agreements, only on a joint one that covers all tenants. Please let me know if you are interested even if you don't currently have someone to share with, as I may already have one person interested, who might be able to share with you.
The back door has a catflap installed and I would consider renting the flat to someone with a well-behaved cat (not more than one), but no dogs or other pets are allowed.
There is some on-street parking available nearby, although the residents' parking scheme requires use of a resident's permit, which is currently c. £25/year. Visitor's permits are also available. Further information about the scheme is available on Lancaster City Council's website; look for residents' parking zone B.
I live only a few minutes away in case of problems and the flat is near Lancaster railway station and the city centre. It takes only a few (about 3!) minutes to walk to the bus station, from where there are frequent buses to Lancaster University and the Lancaster campus of The University of Cumbria. Alternatively it's only a few minutes stroll into town and there is an excellent coffee shop very nearby. Sainsbury's supermarket in Cable Street is only a few minutes away.
The campus of the University of Cumbria is a pleasant 20-25 minutes walk away and there are lovely countryside walks and cycling routes very close too, along the river and canal and round the local nature reserve.
