Located on the first and second floors, No. 112 has been upgraded since our client purchased from new and is now the epitome of style and glamour with high quality appointments; designer silk carpets from Jacaranda Carpets Limited in the living room, staircase, landing and master bedroom, refined wallpapers from Arte, Porcelanosa tiles on the verandah, bathroom and shower room and finally, Amtico flooring from their Signature range in the hall, dining kitchen and second bedroom. There have also been technology additions such as the integrated BOSE audio system to the living room and master bedroom, CCTV cameras and concealed wiring and internet cables for three wall mounted TVs. If you are impressed with the entire look and feel of the property, then the majority of the contents (several pieces of furniture are from design focused Cattelan Italia), the stunning statement light fittings and items of original artwork are available by way of further negotiation.

Located on the first floor and accessible by either lift or stairs, the property has a corner position with a rare roof terrace and partially enclosed verandah providing an enviable private outdoor seating and entertaining area.

The stylish interior offers an entrance hall with cloakroom, dining kitchen, living room with a wall of bi-folding doors opening to the verandah and roof terrace. On the second floor is the master bedroom with ensuite bathroom, a second smaller double bedroom and a house shower room. The apartment also comes with two allocated parking spaces, along with plenty of visitors’ parking and use of the communal grounds.

The owner tells us that he absolutely loves the peace and quite of the apartment, shutting the door on the world after a busy day. The living room is the favourite room; opening the bi-fold doors to the covered verandah which in turn is open to the roof terrace. It has a great flow and is excellent when guests come over.

The Residence is a select and prestigious development on the eastern outskirts of Lancaster offering great accessibility into the heart of this vibrant and historic city. Lancaster has much to offer all generations with an established cultural and music scene, an excellent range of high street and independent shops, professional services, two universities and good healthcare.

Here you will find access to the countryside almost on the doorstep.
