    Fisher Wrathall are proud to offer this historic grade II listed stone built property in the beautiful hamlet of Aughton. Nestled beautifully in the Lune Valley, Aughton House retains a wealth of period features from stone flagged floors to beams and exposed stone walls. There are 5 generous bedrooms and a large attic room. The property has been sympathetically decorated throughout to a high standard and there are two distinct parts to the house, both with kitchens, reception rooms and bedrooms. A stone built sun room adds to the living space and looks out across the garden to the picturesque countryside beyond. Outside is a stone built garage, plenty of off street parking and a well maintained garden that is mainly laid to lawn with fruit trees, mature shrubs and well stocked borders. Offered to the market chain free.

    LOCATION
    Aughton is located in the desirable Lune Valley, just a short drive from the city of Lancaster with its mainline rail links and even closer to the village of Caton with its shops, pubs and other amenities. It benefits from stunning rural views and is very quiet. There are plenty of excellent local walks and junction 34 of the M6 can be reached in 15 minutes.

The appliances are integrated with Electrolux oven and hob and a wood burner under the chimney breast. There is space for a table and chairs and the kitchen leads through to a good sized sun room with double doors leading out to the garden. Off the kitchen is also a useful outhouse room for cloaks, boots etc and off from this is a downstairs WC and utility. To the right of the entrance hall is the main reception room which is large enough to be used as a reception/dining room. It has an impressive original fireplace fitted with a woodburning stove and the old porch has been converted into a small office room. Down a short flight of stairs to the left of the entrance hall is a second reception room which has a large, feature arch shaped window and windows to two aspects.
