Located on the periphery of Caton village, within walking distance to the amenities and access to the Forest of Bowland National Park, this three-bed semi-detached Victorian property is the ideal option for families. Dating back to 1895, this beautifully decorated home has been in the same ownership since 2006 and has been considerably updated during that time to include the conversion of the cellar. The property therefore offers three reception rooms along with a modern kitchen, three good sized double bedrooms and a generous, well planned family bathroom. As well as the modernisation, the home offers all the character and charm of a Victorian home with some well retained original features and high ceilings. The property enjoys lovely gardens to both the front and the rear. The rear garden is perfect for those who enjoy alfresco entertaining with a covered pergola, patio and mature garden for added privacy. Furthermore, to the rear of the property there is access to two private parking spaces.
As a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty it provides a lovely countryside backdrop to the house. It also boasts excellent transport links, with easy access onto the M6 and just a short drive to the City of Lancaster where there is the West Coast Mainline train station offering quick commutes across the country. To the other side of the village, the open countryside continues to offer fantastic walks in the Lune Valley right from your doorstep. The village provides a full range of local amenities including a shop, post office, doctors, pharmacy, cafe and two pubs. There is also a choice of two primary schools, and you are well within the catchment area for the renowned Lancaster Boys and Girls Grammar Schools, as well as other well regarded secondary schools including the Queen Elizabeth School in Kirkby Lonsdale.
