About the Property

Forming part of the historical and charismatic Grade II listed manor house Carus Lodge and situated in substantial grounds extending to approximately 3 acres, is this stunning four bedroom attached home with outbuildings. Boasting pleasant character finishes throughout, this unique opportunity offers the perfect blend of period features and contemporary fixtures, whilst lying in an idyllic semi-rural setting that includes a 1.25 acre paddock, a mature orchard and considerable gardens. The internal accommodation briefly comprises on the ground floor of a welcoming entrance hall with vaulted ceiling, a formal dining room, a large drawing room with striking cornicing and pleasant views over the front lawn, a sizeable farmhouse style kitchen breakfast room with patio doors leading out to a relaxing side patio and a handy utility room with WC. To the first floor are four excellent sized double bedrooms and three well appointed bath & shower rooms, with a spacious landing area doubling up as a second sitting room / reading room. Externally, the substantial gardens offer a variety of enjoyable areas from extensive lawns surrounded by mature trees and well stocked flower beds, to paddock land providing an ideal plot for horses or livestock and a productive orchard. A large internal courtyard, formerly used as a coach entrance with full height double doors, provides a pleasant enclosed patio space whilst also giving access to the large double garage. A sweeping driveway extends round the back of the property and provides off road parking for several vehicles. The property lies on the periphery of the city of Lancaster and lies within close proximity to a multitude of amenities, including highly regarded schools, the award winning University of Lancaster, the Royal Infirmary and a handy West Coast mainline railway station. For commuters, junction 34 of the M6 lies within minutes, providing access South to Preston & Manchester, and North to Cumbria and the Lake District.
