A quite stunning example of a fine period home, lovingly restored and maintained by the present owner in the ever popular village of Forton. Situated on Wallace Lane this semi detached farmhouse is the perfect blend between character and contemporary living. The accommodation comprises an entrance porch which leads into a versatile reception room/study. Beyond that is a snug, an inner reception hallway, a gorgeous split kitchen, a spacious and beautifully appointed lounge, a utility room and a handy ground floor WC. From the lounge there are stairs to a mezzanine bedroom with ensuite and from the kitchen is a second staircase up to the first floor which hosts four more exceptionally proportioned bedrooms with the larger one benefitting again from a charming ensuite. Externally the property has a mature courtyard, a lawned garden and off street parking for several vehicles. The position is quite outstanding. There are uninterrupted Countryside views, not least from the first floor balcony and the access to the village and M6 Junction 33 is particularly straightforward. Forton is a village and civil parish close to the Forest of Bowland. It is a short drive from both Garstang and Lancaster and all of the associated amenities on offer and is on the doorstep of a wealth of stunning walks. At over 2000 square feet and impressively presented throughout we expect a strong level of interest. Contact our office to arrange your internal inspection.
