An exciting opportunity to own a property with so much character and history. A grade II listed building, built in 1612, this property was one of the original buildings on Main Street in Warton along with The Saddlery and The Smithy. It is a well known fact that the family of George Washington owned this property way back in the 1700's. The property has retained many original features, which gives Washington House it's historic charm. With 3 reception rooms, 4 bedrooms, 2 bath/shower rooms and kitchen with conservatory, this is the ideal family home, or may suit a retired couple who love village life, with a picturesque back drop of Warton Crag. Chain Free.
The village of Warton is ideally placed for access to all the places of interest surrounding it. With a short drive to Arnside and Silverdale which are described as places of outstanding natural beauty. The small town of Carnforth is close by, with all you could possibly need, supermarkets, shops, banks, and schools. A small train station gives good commuter links to the bigger cities and the main bus route through to Kendal, Lancaster and other villages en-route . For those loving the 'Great Outdoors' Warton Crag is a main back drop with lots of walking and cycle routes. And of course, we have the local pubs to sit and rest afterwards.
A rather grande front door takes us into the vestibule, with doors leading off into any of the 3 reception room, all present their own character and style. Large stone fireplaces, original beams, suffolk latch wooden doors. Original sash windows, allow natural daylight light to spread its way through this spacious home. To the rear, looking out over the walled patio and garden which is well established and private, is the pantry and kitchen. With high and low level units in natural wood, gas fuelled Aga, with roped clothes airer above, beams and walk in pantry area, this is a well used country kitchen, which will have seen lots of activity over the years! Sitting off the main lounge room is a good sized conservatory, allowing us to take in the splendour of the plants and shrubs surrounding the patio and garden.
Older properties always have great stairs, hall and landings, they might be a little uneven, but this adds to the character and give a good topic for conversation! A family bathroom is off to the right, with bath, shower, hand basin and WC in white, Four double bedrooms with feature fireplaces, beams and sash windows. Natural wood lined walls along the hall way, give further character and style.
An enclosed walkway along the front of the property with a private gated driveway and garage. An enclosed walled garden to the rear, with a patio area overlooking the trees and planted borders. A secluded seating area for those quiet, lazy, summer afternoons.
