Reception Rooms: 2
Crazy Cow is the perfect family home, offering spacious and flexible living accommodation set across three floors to include two reception rooms, a dining kitchen and three well proportioned double bedrooms, of which one is ensuite. The modern conversion of this former public house was completed in 2006 by a well regarded local developer and has been sympathetically carried out to retain all the charming elegance expected of a Victorian property, with high ceilings and sash and mullioned windows that flood natural light throughout. Externally, the neatly landscaped courtyard gardens are ideal for those with busy lives who like to enjoy the outdoor space without the lengthy upkeep. This includes a great flagged courtyard style garden to the rear, directly accessed via French doors in the dining kitchen, providing the perfect space for alfresco entertaining. Practically, there are two private parking spaces and a single garage and families will be delighted with the hyper-fast B4RN internet connectivity available at the property. The property also benefits from fishing rights for 2 rods on the River Wenning.
The picturesque countryside village of Wennington is located along the B6480 and is a great location for commuters due to the local train station offering regular travel along the Leeds to Morecambe line. Access into the City of Lancaster, with its award winning university and hospital and the M6, is an approximate 30 minute drive. The property also sits within the catchment area for the renowned Lancaster Boys & Girls Grammar Schools as well as the high regarded QES secondary school of Kirkby Lonsdale, just 7.5 miles away, and a choice of well rated local primary schools. For local amenities, the neighbouring village of Bentham provides a selection of local shops, a post office and medical practice.
