Property description

The offering of this fantastic home upon the open market provides purchasers the opportunity of gaining possession of one of Garstang’s last untouched gems set within the heart of the market town within access of all of the local amenities and provides fantastic potential for alteration to form a superb family home.Offered for sale for the first time in over 50 years, this impressive residence represents one of Garstang’s last untouched, larger residences providing an impressive amount of accommodation and to the first floor some 5 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. There are also two useful attic rooms and externally there is a sizeable four car garage which provides fantastic potential to be converted to further ancillary accommodation to the main dwelling.

The property we understand was originally constructed for an eccentric Sea Captain and was subsequently owned by the town Doctor and has more recently been occupied by a local solicitor synonymous with Garstang. The property is set within an enviable position within easy access of the amenities of Garstang Town Centre yet providing fantastic levels of privacy. The property is in need of modernisation and improvement yet provides a fantastic blank canvas and boasts a large number of original features.

Adjacent to this is an inner butler’s hall with adjoining separate cloakroom with low level WC, handwash basin and bidet.

The impressive staircase provides access to the main landing and from here can be found an inner landing with large bedroom and family bathroom which benefits from a 1950s suite in white comprising of a panelled bath with low level WC and a pedestal wash hand basin with airing cupboard off.

The main landing provides further access to bedroom 2 benefitting from twin aspects to the front and side of the property, bedroom 3, the smallest of the bedrooms, boasting a window to the front of the property but could ideally be altered to provide en-suite facilities for one of the adjoining bedrooms.
