Hampson Green Farm is a carefully restored late Georgian Farmhouse located amongst rolling countryside with beautiful surrounding gardens, just on the outskirts of Lancaster City Centre. This impressive stone built detached home has been meticulously maintained by the current vendors and would make an idyllic family home for those looking for a quieter pace of life whilst not compromising on the excellent accessibility both locally and across the country. Sash windows, high ceilings and intricate plasterwork create an elegant and authentic charm throughout the spacious living accommodation that includes a large sitting room, garden room, dining room and kitchen to the ground floor and three generously proportioned double bedrooms and a single on the first floor.
The buildings of Hampson Green Farm were converted approximately 30 years ago and the development now stands as a community of 4 private dwellings that are conveniently located near to the Junction 33 of the M6, along a quiet country lane just off the A6 and past a range of one time estate cottages. The Historic City of Lancaster is a short 5-10 minute drive away that passes by the Lancaster University and Royal Lancaster Infirmary. Lancaster is a small yet vibrant city steeped in culture and with an ever growing arts and music scene. The city offers something for all the ages, from its established high street to great independent cafes, restaurants and bars. The West Coast Mainline at the Lancaster train station provides quick commutes across the country, including London in two and a half hours respectively.
The living room is flooded with natural sunlight due to its position, high ceilings and lovely sash windows with pretty window seats and one window running ceiling to floor, all of which over look the lush garden. The living room is double ended and offers abundant space for both a formal and casual setting. Impressive Minster stone fireplaces sit at either end, one with a cast iron Rayburn Rembrandt, the other a cast iron wood burning stove. This leads into the garden room that overlooks the formal, manicured garden to the side of the property. The expanse of windows coupled with Velux’s to the roof ensure for a bright and relaxing room that can be utilised year round. Patio doors also lead out into the garden and the floor is practically covered in hardwearing quarry tiles. The Siematic kitchen includes a range of integrated and fitted appliances that include a NEFF microwave and dishwasher, Miele fridge/freezer and an Everhot cooker with two large ovens, cast iron hot and simmer plates and an integral grill. There is complimentary splash back tiling and quality Amtico tiled flooring. From the kitchen, a glazed door leads through the back porch and into the home office that is quietly tucked away from the main house, yet interestingly there is an internal window looking into the sun filled garden room. This is a perfect space for those looking to work from home due to its quiet position and peaceful garden outlook. In support of the kitchen, there is also a handy utility room that provides space and plumbing for a washing machine, dryer and further fridge/ freezer if required. Access can also be found into the attached double garage from here and back in to the hallway, access into the dry cellar below that also makes for a wonderful wine cellar and offers a wealth of storage space.
From the inner hall, the balustrade staircase circles up to a lovely and bright galleried landing that offers access into half boarded loft space. There are a total of 4 bedrooms spread across this level, one a single room that is currently utilised as a handy hobby room. The remaining three are double bedrooms that are generously proportioned, each offering a unique outlook over the surrounding countryside. One of the bedrooms also benefits from an ensuite shower room and another has a good range of fitted wardrobes. There are plenty of characterful features throughout the whole house like the exposed beams in the family bathroom and pretty exposed lintels over the windows. The spacious and well fitted bathroom enjoys a lovely aspect from the tall window with original shutters, comprising Jacuzzi bath, double shower cubicle, vanity wash hand basin and WC.
The lawns of Hampson Green Farm are bounded by hedgerow and scattered with mature trees that include an ancient Sycamore, Lime Tree, Silver Birch and Apple Trees. The lawn stretches around the property, providing ample space for family enjoyment. Tucked away to the side of the property is a formal landscaped walled garden that proves as a year round suntrap and is a perfect space for taking in the tranquil surroundings. Those with gardening interests will be pleased with the original stone built potting shed and shielded compost area. Out front, the paved driveway affords off road parking for up to two vehicles and also leads into the double garage with remote control up and over doors. There is a further cobbled area that gives access into two handy garden stores, the ideal space for a work shop and storing a sit on lawn mower.
