AUTHORS NOTES 
Although just off the main street down into Lothersdale, The Brow offers a very high level of privacy, particularly in the rear gardens. The property is simply superb in every way both outside and inside and yet with options to extend perhaps with an orangery or erect a substantial double garage; without imposing on what is already a beautiful home. If the house and the gardens were not enough, the views have to be some of the best in the area, Set in an elevated position looking across open farmland in three directions and to the north the only thing you can see is the steeple on the church. A beautiful property in beautiful gardens in a beautiful location. If Lothersdale is within your area this property is one that you must visit.
