Chequers Avenue, Lancaster, LA1
An Analysis of This Property & The Local Area

Chequers Avenue can be found in Bowerham, south Lancaster.  Easily one of Lancaster's most sought-after locations thanks to its high standard of living, quiet nature, and access to all the area has to offer.  Perfectly suited for families with an array of highly regarded schools on offer, Moorside Primary is literally over the road and you also fall in the catchment area for Ripley St Thomas & the Grammar Schools.  Alongside this, you are within walking distance of Williamson Park, with its butterfly house, playground, stunning parkland views, and the playfields over on Barton road.

Bowerham offers a choice of shops and locally run businesses and has good transport links into Lancaster City centre where you can find the larger supermarkets.  Lancaster also has a lively atmosphere with lots of pubs, restaurants and two theaters.  Another major draw is the proximity to the M6 motorway and west coast mainline from the station.

There is more than meets the eye with this beautiful extended three-bedroom home.  Positioned on a quiet cul-de-sac with a long block paved driveway running along the side of the house to a detached garage.  Upon entering the house you will notice the high standard it has been decorated, from the lovely wood effect floor that spreads across the entire ground level to the stylish choices made for feature walls.  There are two reception rooms to choose from, to the front a wide living room with a large bay window acts as a cosy place to relax.  We then find the dining room to the rear with patio doors out to the top patio area, the kitchen is open to the dining room and continues out into the extension.  Modern fitted with Deep Red Gloss units and integrated appliances, there is a small porch and ground floor W.C to the far end.

Upstairs offers three double bedrooms and the master bathroom.  Your main bedroom can be found overlooking the front garden and benefits from good amounts and light and room for large wardrobes.  The second bedroom is to the far end of the landing and sits above the kitchen in the extension, it gets nice views over the garden and again is a good double bedroom and the third bedroom is just behind the master and while the smaller of the three is a great size.  A four-piece bathroom sits in the middle of the house with a full-length bath and separate integrated shower.

One of the most attractive aspects of this home is the wonderful garden.  With its Indian Paved patio and gazebo on the top level, a perfect place to host a BBQ with friends and family and the large lawn at the far end is a great place for kids to play.  Then at the far end of the garden, we have the 6-month-old lodge, full-powered and plumbed and containing a stunning home bar and lounge.  One of the nicest we have seen by far.

About JDG Estate Agents
Welcome to JDG Estate Agents - officially ranked by The Property Academy in conjunction with Rightmove as the BEST Estate Agent in the UK!

At JDG, we like to do things a little differently. We have a different approach when it comes to valuing our homes for sale and a different approach when it also comes to selling them!
We want our clients (both buyers and sellers) to be better informed. We want to share with you our research and knowledge of the area so you can make fully informed decisions. Take this brochure, for example, if you researched lots of different websites, you could find all the information yourself. But that takes time, so we do it all for you, using trusted data sources.

We share with you what is happening with property prices. We let you know upfront about the broadband speeds and mobile phone connectivity. We check the environmental search for the flood risk and we download the title deed at the beginning. It helps to ensure we bring around the people, who are more likely to offer on your home.

Over the past 12 months, 1 in 4 homes on average have sold through our company. If you are thinking of buying or selling, we would love to help.
Our team
It all began back in 1989, in a small office in Lancaster, when John Gallagher opened his first office with a team of just one other person. His vision was clear. To build an estate agency business built on trust, ethics and transparency.

Fast forward to today. Those basic values are still held in high regard. 'People and Property' are our two main passions. Great customer service is what we are about. We are friendly, we are approachable. We listen. We also get results. Since our beginning we have helped over 8000 families move home.

Generation after generation come back to us to sell their homes, which speaks volumes in itself. Landlords come to us for investment advice, after all we are located in a thriving university city. We also get many recommendations by word of mouth and via social media, which is one of the greatest compliments we could ever receive.

Testimonial 1
I used JDG to sell my home and their service was exceptional from start to finish. Their customer service really stood out for me, as did their advice on getting my home ready to market. We had a buyer within a few short weeks of going on the market with them after only two viewings in eight months with a previous agent. Once I accepted the offer, I had a single point of contact in charge of progressing my sale who was always on hand and very friendly.
Testimonial 2
Recently bought a house through JDG. Am so happy with my new home and how all the process went. All their staff are very well trained in giving excellent customer service and this shines through. Would recommend them to anyone.
Testimonial 3
After being let down by another agent, I can't thank JDG Estate Agents enough. What an absolutely brilliant team! Everyone from Eleanor who showed me the home, to Michelle and Boots who provided much needed encouragement, to Cassie and Louisa who kept me in the loop and finally David who left me the keys. A big thank you!
JDG Estate Agents are committed to comprehensive property data being made available up-front to make the home buying and selling process quicker, easier & cheaper. This is why we have partnered with Sprift - the UK’s leading supplier of property-specific data.

Council Tax pays for multiple services in the property's local authority with only part of it going to the council itself. Residences within a Parish or Town Council area have an additional charge to fund the body. Each parish/town council has a different budget and imposes different fees. Not all councils have parishes/town councils and this varies across the country.

In instances where parish/town councils do affect the council tax value and we do not have the exact figure, we present council tax data with the below highlights. Take care to confirm which is being presented by the dashboard as this will need to be made clear to your clients:

avg - When we indicate the Council Tax price is 'avg', it means we have not been able to obtain an exact figure, so this number represents the mean value of Council Tax across the council for that property band. The exact figure will be slightly higher or lower because each parish/town council is priced differently.

min - When we indicate the Council Tax is a 'min', it represents the known amount that the council sets for itself, but excludes the parish/town council cost which we have not been able to obtain. The additional cost will need to be considered as it will be greater than the indicated price.
