DESCRIPTION Rocklands and Low Lodge form a substantial portion of a former Gentleman's residence, commanding a strong position within its elevated garden plot providing fine views across the grounds and wonderful panoramic views from the upper floors to Morecambe Bay.

The external stone steps of Rocklands leads up to the heavy panelled entrance door with marble pillars limestone pediment above.
Walking into the entrance vestibule, you are greeted with so much architectural detailing, from the characteristic high ceiling and beautiful pierced cornice detailing, tiling to the walls and impressive glazed mahogany doors with decorative etchings to the glazing.
The immense character and sheer opulence continues through into the reception hall with a marble pillared arch and ornate tiled floor. An impressive sweeping staircase takes centre stage and coloured/leaded glass panes to the door beneath.
The two principal reception rooms of this property continue to reaffirm the standing of this property with intricate mouldings to the ceiling areas, substantial bay windows and grand fireplaces.
There is a less formal family lounge to the rear of the property, which has a built in storage cupboard and internal access into the adjacent Low Lodge. Alongside the lounge is a separate WC and a private home study. A large, highly glazed modern extension has been added to the side of the property, providing a sympathetic addition, which serves as a fabulous entertaining room that has direct access onto the gardens.
Completing the ground floor accommodation is the kitchen, where there are plenty of fitted wall and base cabinets with a large expanse of work surface, space for a range style cooker and an inset sink unit. The room is naturally light with a low breakfast bar for four people and an external door allows direct access into the rear courtyard.

Similarly, Low Lodge features architectural detailing with its castellated walls, wood panelling and fabulous stained/leaded glass panes with decorative botanical insets.
The living area offers a modern feel, with the open plan lounge-dining space offering good proportions and views of the grounds with glimpses of the bay. The timber panelling across the walls remains, a hint to this rooms former use as a Billiards Room.
