The idyllic village location with rural views makes the perfect backdrop for this Grade II listed home. Packed full of character, steeped in history and with a stunning garden this truly is a beautiful home.

Location

An idyllic village location is just one of many attractions this home has. Brookhouse, in The Lune Valley is part of the parish of Caton With Littledale. As the name suggests Church Hill House sits opposite the parish church of St Paul's. The village is very sought after and has a popular primary school, a post office, shop and popular local, "The Black Bull". For those commuting the M6 is convenient and the back roads allow convenient access to Lancaster and on to the University.

Summary

Church Hill House dates back to the 1600's and originally was a public house called The Eagle and Child. This history explains the generous and impressive rooms the home offers. There is a charming frontage onto Caton Green Road but the home is accessed from the private, gated driveway at the rear. The driveway offers parking for plenty of vehicles and the grounds include a well stocked, mature garden with views and a double garage. Entrance to the home is through an impressive conservatory complete with grape vine. Straight ahead leads to a welcoming reception style hallway. There is a sitting room with log burner and bespoke stone fireplace. The home has a generous, formal dining room, a kitchen diner and off the hallway a cloakroom and ground floor shower room. Upstairs are three generous bedrooms, a beautiful bathroom with slipper bath and a large storage room. The home is delightful throughout with character features in abundance and wooden beams on show. This has been a well loved family home for many years and it really shows. The house has been updated but always kept true to the character and the garden, with it's design and variety, is likely to enthral avid gardeners.

The Living Accommodation

Entrance to the home is through a generous conservatory which even has grape vine. The conservatory looks out over the west facing garden and has views over roof tops to the fields beyond. From the conservatory a door to the side allows direct access to the kitchen diner and straight ahead is access into a welcoming reception style hallway. From the hallway the staircase with stripped wood and gallery landing winds up to the first floor. A glazed door leads straight ahead to the lounge and formal dining room and there is also a door to the kitchen diner. To the right a further a door opens to a generous cloakroom and from there to the ground floor shower room with three piece shower suite. Finally a small door accesses the stone steps leading to an arched cellar, the perfect wine cellar! Even with the thick stone walls, complete with window seat the reception rooms are bright and airy. The sitting room has three windows and the most superb focal point fireplace with bespoke carved stone lintel. The multi fuel stove makes a great feature but the home also enjoys full gas central heating, the boiler is in the cellar. Exposed beams to the ceiling enhance the character feel. The dining room to the side also has three windows to two elevations and again there is a focal fireplace. The kitchen diner is fitted with wooden cabinets incorporating pull out pantry style storage and with an integrated double oven, hob and extractor hood above. There is plumbing and space for a washing machine and slimline dishwasher.

Bedrooms and Bathrooms

In addition to the ground floor shower room there is a first floor bathroom which has been updated in recent years. The freestanding slipper bath is the perfect choice and with two windows, exposed wood work and wooden flooring the bathroom has a hint of real luxury. There is a wash basin and low flush WC too. The three bedrooms are well proportioned and surprisingly generous, there are also fitted wardrobes. The final door off this gallery landing opens to a generous store room with fitted cupboard and under eaves storage.

Outside

The grounds of Church Hill House are simply charming. The gated gravel driveway allows private parking for plenty of vehicles and there is also a double garage with inspection pit. The garage is accessed via two up and over garage doors and behind the garage is a log store. To the side of the home is a walled seating area and private garden, great for a quiet moment or entertaining. The main garden with lawn and planted beds is simply stunning. There is a backdrop view over roof tops to the local fields and the garden itself has such a variety of flowering plants and shrubs.
