Tufton Warren Situated in an elevated position on the edge of Haverbreaks Estate enjoying magnificent views out over the open fields, Canal waterway and Lancaster Castle beyond, Tufton Warren is a substantial family house which has undergone complete renovation in the last ten years by the current owners. The property provides excellent, well-proportioned and generous accommodation with high ceilings, sash double glazed windows and the principal reception rooms benefiting from west facing views out over the garden and beyond.
Built in 1891 by the Storey Brothers of Lancaster, Tufton Warren accessed through a pair of electrically operated wooden gates mounted on stone pillars with a long private driveway leading down to the front of the house. The entrance hall has a flagstone floor and a gas fire with attractive surround with doors leading off to all principal reception rooms, making the house flow incredibly well. To the left of the hall is the study benefitting from hand built fitted units and a large sash window giving a wonderful outlook up the long drive.
The dining room has beautiful ceiling cornicing, enough room to seat ten guests and a lovely open fireplace with marble surround along with access into the garden room which enjoys west facing views out over the garden. The drawing room commands the central position in the house with a large open fireplace and a large bay window flooding the room with natural light.
The kitchen has been completely transformed, adding a substantial extension with full width bi-folding doors out on a patio area that overlooks the garden, creating the large family kitchen/breakfast room that all buyers are looking for, designed by English Hardwood Design.
