Property type: House
This classically symmetrical 1930s home is set in a private road on the edge of Bolton-le-Sands. Just through a gate in the back garden you’ll find the towpath, and a beautiful tree lined stretch of the Lancaster Canal. The property is set above the road, but below the canal, affording you privacy from passing walkers and boaters to the rear, but also giving you glimpses of Morecambe Bay to the front.
The house stands behind a neat low front wall, with an area of lawn, and a driveway leading to the garage. Steps lead up to a welcoming porch, and a tidy paved path continues around the house to the side. Step inside and you’ll find a long central entrance hall with doors opening to each of the ground floor rooms.
The spacious lounge is on the left, and has an unusual and characterful feature window set on the corner of the house to the front, and a large fireplace for cooler seasons. To the right is a lovely front bedroom, which has a matching feature window. The dining room is set behind this bedroom with a window to the side, and behind this room, overlooking the back garden, is a good sized kitchen. There is potential to combine the kitchen and dining room to form a large kitchen diner if you prefer. At the end of the entrance hall is a large bathroom with a corner bath and separate shower. Finally there is a rear bedroom overlooking the garden.
A staircase rises from the entrance hall to the master suite in the roof space. The truly delightful master bedroom has a lovely private balcony overhanging the rear garden, a perfect spot for your morning cuppa or evening nightcap. To the front of the house the space has been divided into a large dressing area and a separate en-suite bathroom, each with a velux window for natural light.
The back garden is a delight, and beautifully cared for. It slopes up towards a border of mature trees, enjoying a delightful crazy paved terrace, beautifully stocked borders, a greenhouse, and planting including a palm tree. A gate in the top corner of the garden gives direct access to the towpath. If privacy is not a particular concern for you, you could open up the hedges and trim the trees to the rear, to reveal views of the canal.
