An exciting opportunity to acquire a beautifully converted period residence that dates back to the 1820s, conveniently located just on the outskirts of Lancaster City

An exciting opportunity to acquire a beautifully converted period residence that dates back to the 1820s, conveniently located just on the outskirts of Lancaster City. The Ashton holds a rich history and was fully renovated in 2008 into a truly stunning and award winning Bed and Breakfast. The elegantly finished interiors afford luxury social spaces and a total of six ensuite double bedrooms for guests to enjoy. Proving popular year round for its countryside surrounds that are still a convenient walk away from the city centre, the business enjoys a successful turnover and has been a well loved project and lifestyle for the present owners. For those looking to continue with this thriving venture, there is also potential to create a self-contained accommodation. There is a sizeable gravelled parking area to the front and sizeable private gardens to the front and rear.

Whilst The Ashton makes for the perfect restorative retreat for guests, this elegant property would also make for a fantastic family home, subject to the relevant planning consents. Slight work would be required to convert the kitchen facilities to that more suited for residential living. Two different designs have been created for new kitchen ideas, first an open plan living dining area in place of the ground floor ensuite bedroom and drawing room and the second option utilising the breakfast room. With this work, the accommodation would suit family life well, affording the open plan kitchen, living and dining area, a study, sun room and five ensuite bedrooms that are already beautifully finished to the highest of standards.

The historic City of Lancaster has much to offer people of all ages with a growing cultural and music scene, good range of high street and independent shops, cafes, restaurants, pubs and bars and an unrivalled choice of health care and further local amenities. There is an excellent choice of local schooling including the renowned Lancaster Boys' and Girls' grammar schools which are in walking distance. The west coast mainline Lancaster train station provides good connections across the country and M6 access is approximately 3 miles away.

The original entrance door opens into the welcoming entrance hall that sets the tone for this fine, sympathetically restored, period home offering high ceilings, original detailed cornicing and in keeping polished wooden floors. Across the property, many original features have been retained including the sash windows, picture rails and cornicing yet the property enjoys modern comforts to include underfloor heating to the bathrooms. Immediately off the entrance hall, there is a cosy study with built in original shelving framing the period decorative fireplace. Leading into the drawing room, an elegant space with French doors leading out to the rear garden, exposed stone fireplace and ample space for entertaining and guests to relax in. To the ground floor, there is also a light filled dining room that looks out over the front, a store room, serving area, a commercial standard kitchen and the first of the 6 ensuite bedrooms. All of the luxury ensuites have been stylishly finished with quality Imperial sanitary ware and include a selection of fittings, including a freestanding bath or a his and hers walk in shower. The further 5 double ensuite bedrooms are set across two floors and offer unique views, spacious proportions and an interior design finish, suited to the high-end bed and breakfast.

Externally, a private drive leads to a sizeable gravelled parking area and the front of this attractive double fronted property. The good size lawn is neatly kept with low maintenance shrubbery borders, tall trees and an enclosed flagged seating area. To the rear, the enclosed patio is ideal for alfresco dining and there are further secure gardens to enjoy.
