    *When we describe a unique property, this is what we are talking about*
    Dating back to around 1650, it is rumoured that Bonny Prince Charlie once stayed at the property. Later in life, it became the bakehouse for the original schoolhouse opposite.
    A detached farmhouse, located in Bowgreave, close to Garstang town centre. The configuration is such that it can be kept as one large family home, or separated into owner and guest accommodation. In its current formation, there is an entrance hallway, boot room, kitchen utility, 'den', sitting room, dining room, dining kitchen, and a WC closet on the ground floor. On the first floor, you will find four bedrooms, a shower room, and an ensuite bathroom. Externally that is extensive parking and well-manicured gardens.

    This family home is full of the quirks you would expect in such an old property. There is a double roof, and in the attic, you can still see the original pegs. The original walls are lumpy and bumpy, again, something you expect to find.

    A rare find! If you love old homes, with lots of original period features, boasting versatile accommodation, then we recommend you arrange a viewing with our Garstang team on 01995213101.

    When the sellers were asked what they loved so much about the house, they advised that the coziness of the home is so welcoming. The rear garden is a sun trap from morning until evening, and the sizes of the bedrooms are great.
