3 bed character property to buy in LA2

Wennington is a small parish near Tatham and Melling, to the north east of Lancaster and in the heart of the Lune Valley. It has a population of around 100 and is served by Wennington Railway Station and is approximately a 20 minutes drive away from Lancaster and the M6 motorway.

The sub-branch railway provides four trains each way per day, and if you pay close attention, you may spot the occasional heritage train chugging past on a summer evening.

The date stone above the door of Station House dates back to the 18th Century, the property was used in times gone by as the village Station Master's residence, its abundance in character is truly remarkable. There are three bedrooms in the main house which offer varying views over the property.

In the centre of Wennington, a quaint Hamlet settled alongside the idyllic River Wenning, this Grade II listed residence is in the perfect location for those looking for a tranquil base themselves either as their main residence, retirement home or even a potential thriving holiday rental.

As a quiet parish, home to the 14th Century Wennington Hall, Wennington also offers modern transport links, with its own train station and located just a 20-minute drive from the M6. Just a 10-minute walk from the local pub, The Bridge Inn, and Wray post office & village store a 4-minute drive.

This early 18th-century semi-detached property, once home to the station master of Wennington Train Station, was built mostly of 1731 dated stone, as displayed above the charismatic vestibule. This quaint dwelling, just a short drive from the Forest of Bowland, offers peaceful living, with a self-sufficient orchard garden as well as room for poultry friends! There are also stunning views of the gorgeous river which runs adjacent to the home. A small riverside hut is found a short walk into the orchard garden and provides the perfect base on the banking for avid ornithologists or just a pleasant spot for a peaceful moment with your favourite novel patiently waiting for the Kingfisher to fly past.

Through the little red gate, a path leads to the date-marked vestibule, home to the property’s prominent crimson front door. Through this entrance to the home, the comfortable lounge area is positioned to the right. This room instantly displays the intimate environment which can be found throughout, with a stone-built fireplace and stone-mullioned window. To the left, is the stunning kitchen, boasting an Esse aga, Belfast sink and integrated appliances. A large pantry space can be found just past the kitchen door, which borders the stairs to the first floor.

The first floor comprises of three bedrooms, the first of which is accessible directly from the stairs, alongside access to the first-floor bathroom. The second bedroom is found on the west side of the home and offers views out over the charming garden. The third and final bedroom, eastward facing, looks out to the front of this period property, and over the nearby rail track which runs through Wennington, hence this beautiful home’s name. The railway station connects Wennington with Lancaster, Morecambe and further East towards Leeds. The proximity to the station means the passing locomotives are always travelling slowly as they approach the platforms.

Down the stairs, a large porchway, with access to the garden, the attached annex, and the outdoor paved patio area. The annexe is a two-storey listed building, full of character, with the potential to be used as additional bedrooms, or even a separate office studio or study area. The attached cottage includes a fireplace and stove, in addition to a Belfast sink on the lower level of the property, with an ‘outhouse’ WC facility to the rear of the lower level. The paved yard is home to an outdoor pizza oven and provides plenty of space for garden furniture, including barbeque facilities and extensive seating.

The garden access door from the porchway leads out to a curious vestibule, and peers down the red stone path, which spans down the length of the garden. Walking along the path, a water feature is spotted to the left, and a shed and poly tunnel to the right, with various small seating areas nestled amongst fruit bushes and trees, which line the garden area. At the very end of the path, an area created for keeping hens, and past this, a large garage. The garage bears an up and over door, along with a pedestrian door to one side, and full power access.

If you are looking for a Lune Valley home simply bursting with character then look no further than Station House.
