Set within the highly sought after, private residential estate of Haverbreaks on the outskirts of Lancaster City, Raffles presents a rare opportunity to let a unique, spacious and contemporary detached family home with sizeable yet relatively low maintenance grounds. Built in the late 1960s in an American-Style and focused on bright and airy rooms, the property has recently undergone an extensive renovation to include a new central heating system, re-plastering, carpeting and new luxury bathrooms and kitchen. Designed in an ‘Upside Down’ manner, there are three generously proportioned double bedrooms of which two are ensuite, a family bathroom and utility to the ground floor and a show-stopping open plan living and dining area to the first floor, separate sun room with WC and a stylish kitchen. Externally, there is a private drive leading to a double garage and double carport, a large lawn to the front, and a paved patio that extends around the property.
Haverbreaks is a secure and peaceful area just to the South East of the centre of Lancaster, a bustling and vibrant City with plentiful shops, restaurants, entertainment and amenities. Its convenient and accessible location, including the proximity of the hospital which is just over half a mile away and the university being only two miles away, will prove to be extremely popular with a range of tenants. Those looking to commute will also find M6 J33 within a 10 minute drive and Lancaster Train station provides a 2 1/2 hour, regular service to London Euston, not bad for a property that also boasts the wonderful Lancashire countryside also within easy reach. There is an impressive selection of schooling in the area with primary schools in nearby Scotforth and Bowerham both gaining ‘outstanding’ in their Ofsted inspections, further Ripley St Thomas and both the Girls and Boys Grammar schools are within walking distance and highly regarded.
Entering into the ground floor through a practical porch, the entrance hall is spacious and welcoming, offering access to the bedrooms and externally to the rear. Each of the bedrooms are large doubles with fitted wardrobes and two include contemporary ensuite shower rooms, fully tiled and fitted with Duravit sanitaryware. The house bathroom also includes Duravit sanitaryware and a modern bath with complimentary tiling to finish. There is also a useful utility space with plumbing for a washing machine.
The stairs lead up to the semi-open plan living and dining room, split with feature wooden dividers typical of the late 60’s style. This fantastic space is filled with natural light afforded from the wall of full length windows looking out over the front balcony. Two embossed windows depicting the Lancaster Castle and Priory Church make for fantastic features and are highlighted by unqiue hanging pendant lighting. Adjoining this principal reception space there is also a sun room, which again features full length windows and French doors giving access to the balcony, with a separate WC for guests. The stylish kitchen includes a range of contemporary units topped with polished concrete effect worktops that encompass a sink and drainer and AEG oven with 4 ring electric hob. There is also an integrated AEG dishwasher, sleek splash back tiling and mosaic effect floors to finish.
