The Property
'Mayfield' is a lovely stone-built residence built in the 1840s, which has been a wonderful home to the same family for over 50 years. It comes to market ready to move into, yet with further untapped potential in its outbuildings. Carefully maintained by the current owners while retaining many period features, Mayfield is comfortable and established yet adapted to modern living. The superb and spacious accommodation includes four bedrooms and a beautiful modern living room with wall to wall windows on the South-facing side and patio doors leading into the garden. The house is surrounded by completely private, substantial gardens with established borders, fruit trees, wildlife areas, and plenty of space for outdoor living. Located in the popular village of Forton, with easy access to Lancaster University and the historic towns of Lancaster and Garstang, Mayfield is also handy for those who want to commute further afield, being close to junction 33 of the M6.

The accommodation briefly comprises entrance hall, lounge, sitting room, dining room, kitchen, utility/garden room, and downstairs shower room. On the first floor are four bedrooms, and a four piece family bathroom. Externally there are gardens to the front, side, and rear, a driveway providing ample off road parking, and a garage. There are also outbuildings with the potential to extend into these (architect's plans are available for a potential guest suite / home-working suite at rear).
