Full property description

“Escape” to the country with no compromises! Unique opportunity to purchase a stunning, Grade II listed home. Dating back to 1670 Aughton Old Hall offers all the character you would expect and yet combines it with modern, energy efficient living.

Escape to the Country
Imagine an idyllic rural setting with rolling open views and a sense of real stillness and peace. A walk down the hill will take you to the quiet sound of the river. You can dance with the swallows as they nest in the garden outhouse and end the day marvelling in the wonder of evensong. This location combines this true rural peace with still being just a short drive from the city and all life's essentials. The house itself retains all the character and charm of the old farmhouse that it is and yet combines that with energy efficient living having air source heat pumps and solar panels. Hyper fast broadband is provided by the B4RN network so this old house is largely already future proofed in so many ways. This really is an escape to the country with no compromise. Life doesn't get much better!

The village of Aughton is in many ways a hidden gem. It combines a peaceful rural paradise complete with Lune Valley views and great accessibility. There is a junction to the bypass just south of the village of Halton connecting to the M6, meaning Lancaster, Morecambe or Heysham are within minutes making the village is perfect for commuters. Meet the mainline train station at Lancaster and you can be in the centre of London within a few hours. The Lakes are just a short drive north or the Yorkshire Dales so whether you are travelling for work, school for pleasure it is all close by. On the doorstep a short walk down hill takes you to the river, great for walks or canoeing. There are local primary schools and great access into Lancaster with several popular secondary schools including the grammars. Options to the north include QES and Sedbergh.

Aughton Old Hall
Built in 1670 and Grade II listed Aughton Old Hall has had a full renovation in recent years but you will find the character fully intact. A spa style en-suite to the master and a modern bathroom with free standing slipper bath complement perfectly with high open ceilings and exposed beams. The flagged floor in the kitchen is polished and the cream Aga (electric) matches the country style kitchen with Belfast style sink, stable door and French Doors opening to the garden. There's plenty of space for the kitchen table giving this split level kitchen a real 'Heart of the Home' feel.

Living Rooms
The main house has an entrance porch and two front reception rooms to either side. The living room has a solid fuel cast iron stove. The combination of solar, solid fuel and two new air source heat pumps make the heating both versatile and economical. The snug to the side has another stove in striking ceramic red. It's a perfect place for cosy winter evenings and the view is phenomenal.

Country Kitchen
At the rear the split level kitchen with dining area occupies the rear and there is a ground floor cloakroom/WC off the hallway. With solid cabinets, simply stunning polished, hardwood worktops, stable style door and naturally an Aga this really is the perfect country kitchen. A French Door opens to the flagged seating area at the rear. There is plenty of space for a table and chairs making this a real "heart of the home" kitchen and the lower kitchen area with Belfast style sink is a great laundry and kitchen area.

Bedrooms, Bathrooms & Annex
Upstairs you will find three double bedrooms and the bathroom. The master bedroom has an en-suite and the high vaulted ceilings create a real sense of space and light. The views to the front are simply idyllic and with window seats below you can sit and really breathe them in. The Annex is perfect for visiting family, teenagers or a granny annex. There is open plan living to the first floor and a large double bedroom with en-suite shower room to the ground floor.
