Property Details

In the same family ownership since it was built in 1974, Wildacres offers a fantastic opportunity to create a wonderful and enviable family home set just on the outskirts of the popular village of Warton. Situated on a large private plot approximately 2.5 to 3 acres. Wildacres allows you to enjoy views of the gardens and surrounding land from most aspects of the house. Whilst the property is in need of modernisation, there is great potential for discerning purchasers to create their dream home within this secluded and completely private setting. Briefly comprising at present, a great sized living room, kitchen/diner with the potential to develop or extend (subject to relevant planning permissions) 3 double bedrooms and bathroom with separate toilet room. Outside, the property is surrounded by three separate paddocks, flagged patio areas and lawned gardens surrounding the property create a haven of peace.

Set back from the road via a private gravelled driveway Wildacres provides harmony and tranquillity, yet is only a short distance to the village of Warton, providing access to the village shop, post office, church, local pubs and primary school. The small market town of Carnforth is approximately 1 mile away with supermarkets, shops and railway links. A local bus service runs regularly into Lancaster, Milnthorpe and Kendal. Described as an area of ‘Outstanding Natural Beauty’ the village of Warton has lots of picturesque walks, runs and cycle routes close by. Access to the M6 motorway is only a short drive away so is ideal for those with a daily commute.

Living Room 14´10 x 12´0 (4.52 x 3.66) A generously sized living room to the front of the house with a double window provides lovely open views over the gardens. The exposed stone fire surround with copper hearth makes a delightful feature to this room.

Practically, there is space for a dining room table making this into a suitable Kitchen/Diner.

Outside Wildacres stands prominently up a private gravelled drive, enjoying an elevated plot and a beautiful surrounding of gardens and land. The driveway leads round in front of the house, allowing multiple spaces for parking. The flagged patio area to the front and rear of the house provides a colourful variety of shrubs and bushes. Lawned areas at Wildacres surround the property, leaving you spoilt with areas to enjoy. Benefiting from three separate paddock areas that brings the total plot size to approximately 2.5 to 3 acres, affords you with huge potential for say a small holding, equestrian interests or the like. The vendors have previously had planning granted for a double garage, now lapsed, but this could be something to look into if required.
