Full description

With its imposing battlemented parapet, this Grade II Listed late18th Century property within the Halton Conservation Area was once connected with Halton Hall, which was located along the banks of the River Lune and was demolished in the 1930s. Various buildings remained and Tower House was long ago created. The driveway entrance is shared with Millennium House and opens to a large flagged courtyard with a flagged terrace and BBQ area situated nearest the door - ready for alfresco dining. Steps lead up to a raised garden with a small garden store, lawn and beds and a gate opens to a path which leads down to the River Lune.

The courtyard is central with doors to Tower House, Lune Lodge and The Cottage. The three properties offer flexibility with regard to extended family, guests or commercial plans. Lune Lodge has two rooms having flagged floors, there is a two piece cloakroom suite. One enters The Cottage straight into the light and spacious sitting room. There's space to create a separate kitchen but at present there are no fittings. Upstairs it's one bedroom with pine floor boards and a shower room. The main event is Tower House, an impressive and statuesque period home which lends itself to entertaining with the front door opening to large reception room on the ground floor and then two high ceilinged, Georgian style reception rooms on the first floor, both with open fireplace, sash windows with shutters. Connecting the floors is an impressive stone staircase with wrought iron balustrade. The main kitchen is next to the first floor dining room but there's a good sized utility on the ground floor. On the second floor are three charismatic double bedrooms with features such as exposed stone walls and exposed wooden floors.

Sold as seen. Please note - we are aware that the property flooded during the winter of 2015/16. Buyers are advised to make their own enquiries.

Mains electricity, gas, drainage and water. Fitted carpets, curtains, blinds, curtain poles, light fittings are all included in the sale. Garden furniture and planters are available separately.
Halton-on-Lune is a small village on the north 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, Kirkby Lonsdale is 15 miles distant and also into Lancaster (2.5 miles) and further afield via the M6 and J34 (0.9 miles).

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. Proceed past the local beauty spot and over the bridge until reaching the small roundabout in Halton. Here go straight across (first exit) and the gated entrance to Tower House is first on the left.
