Set within the heart of the popular village of Halton, located a short drive from Lancaster city centre, sits this lovely stone built Victorian family home. Named for its views of the River Lune, formerly named ‘Loyne’, Loyne View is estimated to have been built between 1886 and 1891 for the headmaster of the former village school. Since being extended, the property now presents flexible and spacious living accommodation that is ideal for families. On the ground floor there is a sitting room and open plan living dining room, kitchen, breakfast room, utility and useful ground floor shower room. To the first floor, there are three sizeable double bedrooms and a large single accompanied by a spacious family bathroom. Furthermore there is also a practical two room cellar and loft space to suit the storage requirements of a large family. The garden has been kept low maintenance to suit the current vendors requirements with a pebbled drive affording plentiful off road parking for several vehicles and access into the detached double garage. This space could be further developed for use of a larger garden if required.
