Description: Originally built as 'The Vicarage' for St. Peter's Church at Field Broughton. This lovely late Victorian house has all the attributes of substance and quality, typical of the period. A private house for many years: this comfortable home enjoys the delights of a country setting, yet is very well placed for access to all local amenities, to towns, transport links, and to the facilities provided by local towns. The A590 is only 5 minutes drive away, and there are railway stations at Grange-over-Sands and Cark-in-Cartmel. Ideal for the family buyer, this house has excellent principal accommodation with extensive storage and ‘usual offices'. With ample parking and 2 double garages, together with useful sheds and storage; this property is ideal for keeping up with the requirements of today's family. Beautifully presented and well maintained, this attractive house stands well in its own mature gardens, well planted with a variety of ornamental trees and shrubs. It has some very attractive views of the Cartmel Valley and towards the Lakeland Fells. This is a delightful setting, one which really does deserve close inspection by those seeking a substantial, yet manageable home in a convenient country location.
