The Property
Absolutely stunning location with magnificent sea views in an idyllic country setting. This splendid detached period farmhouse overlooking Cockerham Sands has so much to offer! Lower Bank House lies directly adjacent to the coastline towards the south of Morecambe Bay. The house was built in 1812 and still retains many character features, including beams (yet with good ceiling heights throughout), stone fireplaces, and two feature arched windows.

Accommodation is over 3 floors and briefly comprises of a lounge, study, conservatory, kitchen/diner, boot room, utility room, hall, landing, bathroom and five bedrooms, although the fifth is currently used as an upper lounge.

There are many period features and the property benefits from double glazing, central heating, fireplaces, off-street parking and gardens to the front and rear. Much of the sandstone used to build the house is believed to have been sourced from the now derelict Cockersands Abbey which lies just half a mile north along the coast.
Cockerham Sands is a peaceful hamlet of five houses and a small, privately owned caravan site neighbouring, but screened from the property. The setting is truly unique and will especially appeal to sea and nature lovers. It is conveniently located in a quiet area but within easy reach of Lancaster and the M6 motorway. The property is also within the catchment area of the highly rated Cockerham Primary School.
