Property Summary

Aldercliffe is a most impressive family home, with five generous bedrooms, a large playroom and a separate study. It is situated on the Haverbreaks Estate, one of the most prestigious locations in Lancaster.

The convenience of the location will appeal to many, especially those looking for a long-term family home. Being on the edge of town, there is plenty of choice for a stroll in the countryside or along the canal towpath, where a short walk brings you to Lancaster's historical city centre. Three Outstanding-rated secondary schools are all within walking distance; there is easy access to Junction 33 of the M6; and Lancaster's mainline railway station is only a 20 minute walk.

Aldercliffe was built in 1900 and sits on a generous plot on a private road. Spacious separation from neighbouring properties and mature planting combine to afford a high level of privacy.

With high ceilings throughout, the house design is influenced by the Arts and Crafts movement. On entering the property, the first impression is of a delightful and large reception hall which includes a functioning open fireplace. There are two very well-proportioned reception rooms and a dining-kitchen which has plenty of room to allow the whole family to sit down for day-to-day meals. A lovely, snug garden room catches the morning sun.

Upstairs there are five good-sized bedrooms, master with en suite, and a family bathroom.

The rear hallway affords access to the garage and utility room and a separate staircase leads up to the playroom and study which could easily be converted into a granny flat if desired.

Good-sized rooms and solid walls throughout allow residents their own personal space, but there is also a very pleasing intimacy for a house of this size.
