Description Garth House is very special indeed. Having been a happy and much loved family home for over 40 years, it now finds itself on the market looking for lucky new owners to bring it back to the life it so deserves.

This imposing property is wonderful with some incredible period features, rooms of exceptional proportions, space for even the largest of families (perhaps potential for B & B or to accommodate a dependent relative or two, or maybe perfect for the home workers). A superb location with a short, level walk to the amenities of the town, heaps of versatility to use as you wish and magnificent Bay views from the Terrace and First and Second Floor Rooms!

It is not often you find a property of this size that has not been converted into flats and we really can't recommend a viewing highly enough to really appreciate the magnificence and potential for yourself. Adding to the wonder of this super property are the splendid traditional features, such as beautiful original doors, high corniced ceilings, ceiling roses, original sash windows to name but a few.

The main front door opens into the Entrance Vestibule with half glazed original door into the Hallway. The Hallway is spacious and inviting with decorative arch, high corniced ceiling, magnificent original staircase and traditional doors to the Ground Floor Rooms. The Morning Room is a charming, well proportioned room with large walk in bay window affording pleasing views over the Garden and glimpses of Morecambe Bay. Gas fire with tiled surround. The Lounge is an impressive size with side window and lovely, walk in bay window with similar Garden views and glimpses towards Morecambe Bay. Feature Sandstone style fireplace with inset gas fire. Door to Kitchen.

The Kitchen is situated to the rear and is furnished with a range of older style wall and base cabinets with inset sink unit. Original recessed pantry cupboard. Central heating boiler, external rear door and window.
A door from the Kitchen leads in to the former Dining Room which has a rear outlook and wall mounted gas fire with wooden surround. More recently utilised as a Bedroom with WC and wash hand basin. Door to the Hallway.

From the Hallway there is an external side door and door with steps down into the Cellar. This is excellent space with good head height, power and light and consists of two main rooms ideal for storage/workshop and ideal for wine storage! From the Hallway the stunning, wide tread return staircase with original ornate spindles and balustrades leads to the half landing with wonderful original stained glass window and up to the main Landing which is spacious and provides access to all rooms.

There are 4 well proportioned Double Bedrooms, 2 with lovely views towards Morecambe Bay, 2 with rear aspect and 1 with side aspect. All have double glazed windows and wash and basins. Bedroom 5 is a large single with single glazed sash window. The Bathroom is also of large dimensions and has a 4 piece white suite comprising WC, wash hand basin, bath and shower enclosure. A door provides access to the narrow staircase that leads up, past a large window to the Second Floor.

The Second Floor has 3 further Attic Rooms, 2 with simply breath-taking Bay views from the dormer windows and 1 with built in furniture to the rear. These rooms could be further double Bedrooms if required or perhaps reconfigured to create a wonderful Master Suite, Teenagers space, Offices - there are many possibilities.

Externally to the rear is a superb Double Garage with 2 up and over doors, power and light. There a also 2 stone Out Houses, 1 with power, light and old shallow sink, 1 store room and a useful WC. There is also extensive Parking to the rear for several cars. The main Garden is to the front and will not disappoint. Ample space for children to play with spacious level lawn (ideal croquet!), deep, well stocked borders, original stone steps passing more rockeries which are planted with a fragrant and colourful range of plants to the Terrace. The paved Terrace is right outside the front door and is a real joy. An absolute sun trap and wonderful space to entertain, or simply sit quietly and watch the world go by. The outside space complements inside perfectly. 

Location Garth House enjoys a prominent and convenient location in Grange over Sands with amenities such as Medical Centre, Railway Station, excellent Primary School, Library, Post Office, Shops, Cafes and Tearooms all within walking distance. The picturesque Edwardian Promenade is just a stones throw away along with the Ornamental Gardens and Band Stand.

Grange-over-Sands is a mainline station for the Carlisle to Lancaster line, including a stop for the direct Barrow to Manchester airport service. Kents Bank Road enjoys a very convenient location, but also enjoys a quiet residential feel.
