Casterton, Sedbergh Preparatory School (0.1mi.)
Underley Garden School (0.9mi.)
St Mary's CofE Primary School (1.3mi.)
The Old School is located in Casterton village on the outskirts of Kirkby Lonsdale. This property is a development proposition as it involves converting a former school building into a four bedroom detached dwelling. The property occupies a generous site in a streamside location opposite the Holy Trinity Church in the centre of the village. The gardens and grounds are substantial and have superb potential to create private gardens with a new driveway leading to parking at the rear of the property and adjacent to the annexe building which is a former teaching facility. This building alone has numerous uses including garage, workshop or studio (subject to planning consent). The Old School is a rare opportunity to acquire a property of this type in this location and inspection is strongly advised.
The village of Casterton enjoys a much admired setting in the Lune Valley and is home to one of the area's premier preparatory schools Casterton, Sedbergh Preparatory School. The village provides ready access to the M6 motorway whilst being equidistant to Lancaster and Settle and only some 15 miles or so from Kendal. Nearby Kirkby Lonsdale provides a comprehensive range of local services including a bustling market square, every day shops, a Booths supermarket, golf, cricket and rugby clubs. There are excellent schools nearby including Sedbergh and QES at Kirkby Lonsdale. The strategic location is well placed for North West business centres and the West Coast mainline can be joined at both Oxenholme (Kendal), and Lancaster. The stunning countryside of the Lake District and Yorkshire Dales National Parks are close by and offer great scope to engage in rural pursuits and hobbies as there is easy access to walks, challenging cycling and mountain bike routes, bridle ways and, for the more adventurous, pot holing in the Ease Gill Cave system, the longest explored pot hole system in the country.
From the A65 heading in the direction of Kendal turn right towards Casterton passing Devils Bridge and the petrol filling station on entering the village of Casterton. Proceed toward the centre of the village, passing the public house, proceed down the hill where the Old School can be found on the left hand side opposite the Holy Trinity Church.
