About The Location

Castle Court is located on West Road just round the corner from Lancaster Railway Station and The Castle precinct is on your doorstep. The block overlooks open fields to the rear and mature trees provide extra colour which is lovely considering you are in the city centre. Both Lancaster City Football and Cricket Grounds are just around the corner for those who love sports. The vibrant city of Lancaster has a cultural night-life with a great range of restaurants, theatres and bars all within walking distance.

What Can You Expect?

This apartment can be found in a small residential block on the first floor. Once inside you will find a hallway which offers storage and leads to all the rooms available. The main living room looks out over the front of the home and there is a separate dining room also. The fitted kitchen has space for the expected white goods and there is also a three piece bathroom. Finally the two bedrooms both look out over the rear with views towards the open playing field and football ground.

To the rear of the building there is parking spaces available and there is a communal area where you can dry your clothes. The property has been central heated and has a gas combination boiler.

The Living Accommodation

Stepping inside this apartment you will find yourself firstly in the hallway which has two handy built in storage cupboards so you can hide away your coats, shoes, hoover and ironing board etc. This l-Shaped hall has neutral decoration and provides access to the rooms available.

Buyers will find that the lounge is just off the hall on your left hand side. This room has been decorated in a neutral fashion to suit most peoples style and has two windows which look out over the front of the building towards the mature trees, providing privacy from the road side. There is ample space for all the expected furniture we all use and there is access through to the separate dining area.

The dining room sees the continuation of the neutral decoration and once again natural light is provided from a window to the front elevation. Here you can enjoy your morning and evening meals and there is direct access into the kitchen from here so it's rather handy.

Buyers will find that the kitchen has been fitted with a good range of built in storage with wall and base units on offer. There is space for the expected white goods and whilst you are stood at the stainless steel sink you will find yourself looking out of the window which is to the side elevation. One of the wall cupboards hides away the gas combination boiler and the splash backs have been tiled for ease of cleaning.

Bedrooms & Bathroom

The master bedroom is a great sized double room which enjoys a rather pleasing aspect over the rear of the building towards the open playing fields and the football ground. This room is plenty big enough for a double bed and all the expected furniture we all use on a daily basis. The second bedroom has the same aspect and like the master has been decorated in a neutral style. We feel this would make a perfect single bedroom or maybe even as a study room depending on your personal needs.

The bathroom has been fitted with a three piece suite in white. This modern suite also features an electric shower above the bath so you get the best of both worlds. The room has been fully tiled for ease of cleaning and there is also a frosted window to the side elevation.

Communal Outside Space

To the front of the building there are a variety of mature trees to give a leafy green aspect as you enter the development. A driveway leads down to the rear of the building where you will find space to park and a communal lawned garden space which is well maintained. To the rear there is also access to a communal drying area which you can use.

Each flat owner has their own individual storage area.
