Situated just 4.5 miles away from the City of Lancaster yet enjoying a highly sought after, private and semi-rural location on the outskirts of Caton village, this is truly a rare and exciting opportunity. Set along the quiet yet popular and private Ball Lane, where properties rarely come to the market, the building plot has planning permission for a premium family home. Plans have been passed for a detached dwelling of approximately 2820 sq ft, offering accommodation set across three floors. To the ground floor, three reception rooms and an open plan dining kitchen with separate utility and larder offer flexible space suited to modern family living. Set across a further two floors there are five double bedrooms, of which three are ensuite, to include the spacious master suite with ensuite and dressing room. The property has certainly been designed to be impressive yet will also blend seamlessly with the characterful properties of the surrounding countryside. It has also been designed to capture the beautiful views and will have sizeable, private gardens protected by tall trees and hedges and a private drive leading to a large detached single garage.
Caton offers the best of both worlds, a peaceful semi-rural setting in the Lune Valley and a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty that is perfectly positioned for commuters. M6 access can be found just 2.5 miles away and the Lancaster train station provides regular, direct commutes to Manchester and London. Within the village itself there are a choice of amenities to include a shop, doctors, pharmacy, vets, cafe, two pubs and popular primary school. The thriving village community also offers something for those of all ages with an active village hall and IT centre, tennis courts and bowling green. Lancaster provides an excellent choice of schooling including the renowned boys and girls grammar schools, the Lancaster and Cumbria universities and Royal Lancaster Infirmary. For the lovers of countryside, there are many rural walks and cycle tracks across the Lune Valley to be enjoyed right from your very doorstep.
