Set within a quiet residential cluster of converted farm buildings, this unique and charming 3 bed home is located on the outskirts of Bay Horse, just a 2 minute drive to the A6 , with convenient access to both Lancaster, Preston and the M6. Converted in the mid 90s, the property has since been within the same ownership and has been immaculately maintained. The accommodation includes an open plan living space with a separate kitchen, ground floor shower room and three bedrooms and a shower room to the first floor. A hidden surprise to the property is the wonderful outside space which includes a beautiful front garden, rear courtyard, single garage, shared parking with neighbouring property and the fantastic, large woodland garden. Formerly a bare paddock, this private and green space that backs on to the dell has been lovingly transformed by the owner to create a space that not only attracts the local wildlife but provides your own tranquil haven with a summer house, selections of fruit trees and a lovely view over the Forest of Bowland.
The conveniently located village of Bay Horse is just 10 minutes drive south of the historic city of Lancaster, boasting quick access to the M6 junction 33 whilst still enjoying an idyllic countryside location with the Forest of Bowland on your doorstep. The nearby villages of Galgate and Dolphinholme provide an abundance of local amenities including shops and great country pubs and there is the lovely market town of Garstang close by. Lancaster City has a great choice of high street and independent shops and eateries. The train station provides access to the West Coast mainline with direct rail services to London and Glasgow (2½ hours) and Manchester with its international airport (50 -90 minutes)). There is also unrivalled health care and schooling in the area, including a variety of primary schools at Forton, Cockerham & Dolphinholme and the renowned Lancaster boys and girls Grammar schools and both the University of Cumbria and Lancaster University, just a 5-10 minute drive away.
Most importantly - the property is also just a few minute's walk to the award winning pub and restaurant, the Bay Horse Inn! Those with sporting interests will be delighted with the location; there are an abundance of heavenly cycling routes and great walks to be enjoyed right from your doorstep.
Entry to the property can be obtained from either the front or rear. From the front, a path leads through the lovely front garden to a glazed door opening into the open plan reception space.
From the rear of the property, access to the entrance hall, that was an extension completed in 2005, can be found from the rear courtyard. This is a great practical space with fitted storage cupboards, ideal for knocking off muddy boots and wet rain coats after enjoying one of the many local walks.
