Located in the pretty village of Bolton-le-Sands, this delightful property, offered with no upward chain, provides a flexible 4 or 5 bedroom home that has been extended and updated in the last ten years. The original cottage dates back over 100 years and many of the original features add character to the house. Set out over three floors and split levels, the house would lend itself well to a family or indeed a professional couple looking for additional space. The ground floor offers a spacious garage with combined utility, double bedroom and sizeable shower room. Located on the first floor is the kitchen, living room and a further double bedroom and pleasant bathroom. The upper floor has three super, versatile bedrooms, one of which is ensuite and all of which have been carefully planned with plenty of storage solutions on offer. Outside the property to the rear, the patio area provides an easy to maintain haven for al fresco living and benefits from access, via a lockable gate, on to the canal and with views towards Thwaite Brow Woods.
Bolton-le-Sands itself is a popular small village close to the larger town of Carnforth and with excellent transport links to nearby Lancaster and further afield if required. The village boasts a number of small shops, post office, three churches, three pubs, a library, a doctors surgery and a renowned fish and chip shop. Carnforth also offers a selection of larger supermarkets and additional amenities including the train station. There are plenty of pleasant walks along the canal and also towards the shore at Hest Bank. Schooling in the area is good with Bolton le Sands CofE being the closest and St Lukes in Slyne with Hest also close by. Those with children of secondary school age will be pleased to know the property falls within the catchment area for the Lancaster Grammar Schools, and Carnforth high school offers a further alternative.
