A magnificent opportunity has arisen to acquire a fine detached residence, situated in a private and enviable position enjoying delightful gardens and grounds. This substantial superior home offers versatile accommodation with five generous bedrooms, excellent reception space and has a beautiful and private sunny aspect over manicured gardens. Dating back to the 1930’s, Woodmuir has been a well loved family home to the same owners for the past 38 years; the ideal location and classically planned accommodation are sure to prove popular amongst discerning purchasers looking for their forever family home.
Woodmuir sits within a beautiful elevated position and offers home owners a unique countryside lifestyle on the very outskirts of the city, with canal side and countryside walks to be enjoyed from your doorstep. The area is highly regarded and sought after for its ease of access into Lancaster city centre and to the hospital, universities and renowned secondary schools. For those looking to commute further afield, Lancaster station provides direct rail links across the country and M6 junctions are a short 10-15 minute drive away.
Accommodation The property is accessed via a private tarmacadam drive which sweeps through a mixed band of trees and rises to the front of the house where ample parking is provided along with a detached garage with electric up and over door.
The slate entrance porch gives way into the inviting hallway with original floorboards and as expected high ceilings. There are two immediate reception rooms; a ‘morning room’ enjoying a sunny position and currently in use as a music room, and a formal sitting room to the rear; both of these generously sized rooms feature duel aspect with bay windows and working gas fires with decorative surround. There is a good sized study/home office that features views over the front garden, the perfect space to hide away from the hustle and bustle of daily life. To the rear, is the hub of the home, the kitchen; a spacious and bright room with external access and a breakfast bar with integrated appliances comprising oven, grill, Neff gas hob, sink and drainer and plumbing in place for a dishwasher. The kitchen opens out through double doors into a large garden room that was added approximately 5 years ago. Quietly tucked away just off the main entrance hall there is a separate downstairs WC and a very useful utility and laundry room with plumbing in place for a washer and a dryer.
The original wood panelled staircase conceals a handy under stairs storage area and leads up the spacious landing above that is filled with natural light due to the high ceilings, gallery windows and skylight. The first floor is classically planned to include five generous double bedrooms, each with a lovely individual outlook over the gardens and grounds. Serving the bedrooms is a good sized four piece house bathroom and separate WC.
Outside The front and rear gardens surrounding this well positioned home provide a wealth of areas for both practical use and family enjoyment. An arrangement of mature trees are scattered across the borders and when in full bloom provide that much needed privacy for summer time entertainment. Practically, the private driveway leads to the detached garage and provides ample parking for several vehicles. Delightful paving leads round the side of the property towards the rear, with plentiful space for seated al fresco dining with additional lawn area to the rear. There are two free standing sheds round the side of the property, perfect for storage.
