Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Set within private and secluded grounds on the outskirts of the village of Halton in the sought after Lune Valley, convenient for Lancaster and the motorway.

The house is a testament to a bygone age with accommodation of character and great proportions enjoying splendid views over the gardens and the River Lune towards Clougha Pike and the Forest of Bowland. Times, fashions and how we live has changed and whilst a well loved family home for almost 40 years, it is now ready for the next generation to refurbish and remodel to create a contemporary living space. Three reception rooms, a conservatory and hallway with original mahogany staircase and parquet floor are complimented by a large dining kitchen and ancillary rooms. To the first floor are four double bedrooms, (three with across valley views), two bath/shower rooms and a separate WC. The second floor has three rooms which could provide further bedrooms and a large attic space.

The grounds are a delight with landscaped gardens to the front and rear. There is a large south facing terrace which runs the full length of the house with doors out from the drawing room and conservatory. With an adjacent parcel of woodland the grounds amount to c. 2.24 acres (0.91 hectares).

As the name suggests, Halton-on-Lune is a small village on the northern banks of the River Lune just north of Lancaster. It has a school, church, general shop and butchers, doctors' surgery, sports club and pub. There is good access to the scenically beautiful Lune Valley (jewel in the Lune Valley crown Kirkby Lonsdale is 12 miles distant) and also Lancaster (4.5 miles) and further afield via the M6 and J34 (1 mile) so a good location choice if you need ready motorway access for commuting.

Exit the M6 at J34 and proceed on the A683 signposted Kirkby Lonsdale. After around 2 miles and before reaching the village of Caton, turn left signposted Crook o Lune onto Low Road. Proceed past the local beauty spot and over the bridge and after passing Green Lane on the right, Forgewood House is the second property on the left.
