Welcome to Gelenogle, a truly distinctive family home perfectly poised in the village of Caton. This home is on Lancaster Road, opposite open fields and surrounded by the greenery that encompasses neighbouring Low Mill.
Caton is a highly desirable village, noted for it's open countryside, leafy surroundings and also its sense of community. The village sits within the Forest of Bowland an area designated as an area of outstanding natural beauty. It's a thriving community with a full range of amenities including a shop, post office, doctors, pharmacy, cafe and two pubs. Education options are excellent with a choice of two primary schools. Both Lancaster Boys and Girls Grammar Schools are within the catchment area as are other highly regarded schools.
The ground floor
Come in, hang up your coat and step through the entrance porch into the spacious hallway which conveniently sits central in this home. All principal reception rooms lead off the hall.
Straight ahead is the main lounge resplendent with it's large bay window overlooking the immaculately maintained front garden. The Elgin and Hall Wave fireplace sits central creating a warming focal point to this family room. French doors lead you onwards to the snug - a place to enjoy reading the daily newspaper or perhaps a book or two.
The ground floor bathroom is set just off which means - should you need - this room could become a guest room should have the need to accommodate a visiting guest.
The formal dining room also looks out over the front lawn. Also bay fronted, this spacious room is perfect for those who enjoy to entertain family and friends and host the occasional dinner party. You, of course, may be prefer more causal dining in which case this could be used as a 2nd lounge. The choice is yours.
Follow us on and into the L-shaped kitchen diner. We have lots of ideas for this room including extending it by squaring it off and adding bi-fold doors. Currently though it is perfectly workable as it is with white cabinets, a double built oven, integral appliances and a rather pleasing view out over the garden. There is even a stable style door leading out to the garden. The utility room next door is an excellent space with plenty of storage to hideaway family clutter.
The first floor
Take the original returning staircase. Pause at the half landing. Open the french doors and step out on to the balcony and take a moment to admire your views and take in your surroundings. The evening sunset from here is simply fabulous.
To the first floor there are 3 bedrooms - all of which are double rooms. The master bedroom is light and airy due to the dual aspect of this room. The built in wardrobes are stylish and provide his and her storage. The 2nd bedroom is used for the visiting grandchildren - it's a spacious double in its own right and has those fabulous open views. The 3rd bedroom is to the rear. This peaceful feeling room offers a sense of calm and serenity. It maybe the smallest bedroom however it is quite possibly the owners favourite!
The fully tiled bathroom features a 3-piece suite in cream. It is fully tiled to compliment and has a traditional built in airing cupboard.
The attic room
Take the 2nd staircase and up to the attic. This really beats having a pull-down ladder. This fully floored attic makes for excellent walk in storage. You, of course, may have other ideas for this area of the home.
With a little bit of work it would make a great hobby room.
The gardens, drive and double garage
Glenogle is on a large plot with ample off street parking on the block paved driveway for several vehicles. The neat gardens are surrounded by paved pathways leading to a large patio - ideal for alfresco dining. Behind the perfectly cut hedge is the wildlife garden and tucked away are sheds and a potting area - perfect for the enthusiastic gardener.
The double garage ( it has power and light ) also features a car pit. The owners have previously applied for planning permission which was granted to convert this into a self contained granny annex. Could this be a home where your relatives could join you too - yet still maintain their own independcy?
