An impressive residence situated along a private driveway. With outstanding character features throughout with scope for refurbishment. Providing garage buildings and workshop along with extensive gardens and grounds extending to approximately 1.3 acres.

A spectacular property providing accommodation of exceptional size and character, set within a secluded position on the edge of a sought-after village in the heart of the Lune Valley. Escowbeck Cottage is in an extremely convenient position for access to highly regarded schools, the M6 motorway links, the Lake District National Park and the West Coast Mainline rail services from Lancaster Station.

The village of Caton has lots of offer with a range of amenities and services including shops, pharmacy, doctors schools to name a few, all set within a thriving community. Despite the property's private and secluded position, the village services are all within walking distance. For those with family Escowbeck Cottage falls within the catchment for the Royal Grammar schools in Lancaster and has bus links to Queen Elizabeth school, Kirkby Lonsdale.

The property has been extended over the years and now provides a substantial character residence with stunning features, set within good sized gardens and grounds extending to 1.3 acres or thereabouts. Now in need of upgrading and refurbishment there is excellent scope to design a stunning home with ample floor space to create secondary accommodation.

Situated along a private, shared driveway the property occupies a secluded position amongst mature planting. The driveway splits at the main entrance point, as shown on the plan within the sales particulars, with the property grounds being situated to the front, side and rear. Situated along the driveway are two other properties.

The accommodation is extensive and extends over approximately 5,500ft2. The formal entrance is an impressive space which sits centrally within the main house. The ground floor affords four reception rooms, a breakfast kitchen, utility area, pantry and stores. To the first floor the property offers six bedrooms and three bathrooms. There are two staircases to the first floor, with one historically being used to access the  servants' quarters. The accommodation lends itself to be reconfigured to create a living space of exceptional design, suited to modern day living.

Outside, the property offers two garages and a workshop set within the rear courtyard, together with extensive gardens and grounds. The gardens require some love and attention but could be brought back to their former life. The gardens are predominately set to the rear and provide an extensive lawned area and mature planting to the borders, with a spectacular display of rhododendrons. In all the property extends to 1.3 acres or thereabouts.
