This historic Grade II listed gothic building was built in 1883 and has since stood as an iconic feature of the Lancaster City skyline. In present day, the near 40 acres of private grounds has been completely transformed by developers PJ Livesey to provide an array of new build homes and stunning contemporary apartments within the striking annexe building. The generous proportions of 303 South Wing will appeal to a range of buyers, offering three double bedrooms, two ensuites, a family bathroom and a stunning, light filled open plan living and kitchen area featuring a striking original stone circle window. The mix of contemporary finishes and original features creates a stylish and impressive apartment and there is also private balcony accessed from the bi-folding doors on the open plan area. The apartment also benefits from two private parking spaces.
The Residence is situated in an ideal, prime position close to Lancaster City Centre; 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.
The apartment is positioned to third floor and can be easily assessed by way of a communal lift or stairs. On entry, the hallway is flooded with natural light afforded by the two velux windows. One of the exceptional features of this apartment is the amount of storage on offer, from the abundance of eaves storage to the many built in cupboards, two of which can be accessed from the hallway.
The open plan living arrangement is impressive to say the least; bright and spacious with a dual aspect to include the bi folding doors which lead out onto the balcony. The second aspect can be enjoyed via the exposed feature circular stone window which over looks the playing fields beyond and distant Forest of Bowland. This striking structure is a beautiful part of this apartment and overall the space is great for both modern living and entertaining. The kitchen is both modern and practical with tiles flooring comprising a full range of wall and base units, breakfast bar with space for seating, NEFF oven, drill, microwave and gas hob, sink and a half and a combined, integrated washer dryer. Adjacent to the kitchen is ample space for formal dining furniture to seat all your family and guests along with a designated living for comfortable seating; the furniture within this open plan living arrangement can be available to purchase by separate negotiation. There are a couple of steps up to the bi folding doors, which lead out onto a fully enclosed, decked balcony area which overlooks the grounds of The Residence – the perfect sun trap and ideal for private, al fresco dining in the summer months.
In total, there are three generous double bedrooms, all of which boast quality fitted wardrobes and two of which benefit from attractive, fully tiled en suites. The stunning family bathroom is fully tiled and comprises a bath with shower attachment, WC, wash hand basin and towel radiator.
This property will appeal to a wide range of buyers seeking executive-style living in a highly convenient 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 a private allocated parking space but also the additional benefit of visitor parking spaces.
