Full Details

303 North Wing is a truly spectacular penthouse apartment; arguably one of the most spacious three
bedroom apartments that the highly regarded Grade ll listed development, The Residence, has to offer.

Now on the open market for the first time since it was developed by PJ Livesey, this luxurious third floor apartment with truly stunning views will suit a wide range of buyers who live busy, professional lives.

Originally built in 1883, the building boasts many original fine features, portraying elegance and style throughout, which also extends into the apartment itself; representing the perfect environment for modern day living with attention to detail. The communal gardens and grounds which surround The Residence have been lovingly created and developed to complement this fine, exquisite building.

Situated within a stunning conservation area, the location of The Residence is ideal and offers the best of both worlds, set within a prime position close to Lancaster City Centre yet with the rolling countryside on your doorstep. The historic city of Lancaster has so much to offer people of all ages with a growing cultural and music scene, excellent range of high street and independent shops, and an unrivalled choice of health care and local amenities. Families will be delighted with the exceptional choice of primary schooling, and the highly rated Boys and Girls Grammar Schools, and Ripley St Thomas also within easy reach and walking distance for those of secondary age. The apartment is conveniently located, with close bus routes, the M6 motorway junction 33, Lancaster University, Lancaster Royal Infirmary and the locally renowned Williamson Park on the doorstep.

303 is positioned to third floor and can be easily accessed by way of a communal lift or stairs. On entry, the spacious hallway is flooded with natural light by way of a large velux window. One of the exceptional features of this apartment is the amount of storage on offer. The hallway has three separate sizeable storage rooms, one of which is an exceptionally large walk-in eaves storage space, the second perfect for hanging coats and boots and the third housing the boiler and electrics with ample space for linens and domestic equipment. In total, there are three generous double bedrooms, all of which boast quality fitted wardrobes and delightful far-reaching views across park land and the Lake District fells. The two stunning bathrooms are fully tiled and both comprise shower, WC, wash hand basin and towel radiator, with the family bathroom additionally benefiting from a bath. The open plan living arrangement is impressive to say the least; bright and spacious with a dual aspect approach by way of the bi-folding doors which lead out onto the roof terrace and the exposed feature circular stone window which overlooks the fields beyond. These structures certainly make this room the heart of the home and perfect for open plan entertaining. The kitchen is both modern and practical with tile flooring and comprising a full range of wall and base units, breakfast bar with space for seating, NEFF oven, hob, sink and a half and a combined, integrated washing machine and dishwasher. Adjacent to the kitchen is ample space for formal dining furniture to seat all your family and guests along with a designated living area for comfortable seating. There are a couple of steps up to the bi folding doors, which lead out onto a fully enclosed, South-facing decked outdoor roof terrace area which overlooks the grounds of The Residence and the park beyond – the perfect sun trap and ideal for private, al fresco dining in the warmer months.

303 North Wing will appeal to a wide range of buyers seeking executive-style living in a highly convenient, sought after location. The communal areas at The Residence are simply stunning and are there for the residents to enjoy, without the stress or time of maintaining the upkeep. The apartment comes with two private allocated parking spaces which are certainly well placed (very close to the door!) and also the additional benefit of ample visitor parking spaces.
