Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Set within the heart of the village of Casterton, enjoying views of Holy Trinity Church, a large detached stone and slate property, arranged as a one bedroom cottage with sitting room, kitchen and bathroom (currently let) and school rooms which are no longer in use. There is a detached single storey annexe, large lawn gardens to the rear and excellent parking provision to the front.
The annexe is full of potential and could make an ideal office for those looking to detach work from home, a splendid studio or domestic workshop or could possibly be upgraded for guest accommodation. Conversely, if you have grand garden design plans, it could be demolished to make way for your scheme. Interested parties are advised to make enquiries of the planning department to satisfy themselves as to their requirements.
There is planning consent (Reference SL/20/0319, dated 19 May 2015) for "Internal alterations and change of use of school accommodation and attached school staff residential accommodation to unrestricted residential accommodation". The neighbouring former school boarding houses have been sold for residential development.
Mains electricity, gas, water and drainage.
Casterton, being home to Sedbergh School's Preparatory School, one of the leading preparatory schools in the north of England with exceptional facilities for young children aged 4 to 13 and full nursery provision, is charming village within a sought after residential area with a village hall and green, a church, the popular Pheasant Inn and Town End Garage and store.
Kirkby Lonsdale, being 1.5 miles distant, has a good range of facilities (St Mary's Primary and the well regarded Queen Elizabeth School, a selection of local and gift shops, restaurants, pubs, tea shops, churches, Booths supermarket and a weekly local market in the square, high street bank and a Post Office) with Kendal (15.4 miles) and Lancaster (21.8 miles) offering a more comprehensive selection.
For those that love the great outdoors, Casterton is well placed with lots of good walks/runs/cycle routes from the door as well as nearby with the National Parks, the Howgill Fells and the Three Peaks. Golf courses are sited at Kirkby Lonsdale, Casterton, Sedbergh, Windermere, Lancaster and two at Kendal. For road and rail travel, access to the M6 motorway is either at junctions 34 or 36, depending on the direction of travel, with the nearest West Coast railway line stations at either Oxenholme (Kendal) or Lancaster.
From Kirkby Lonsdale take the A683, enter the village, and after passing the Church on the right hand side, turn next left. Continue and Old School is the first property on the right hand side.
