Property description

“askew gate house”. Sandside. Kirkby in Furness. LA17 7TE.
This very substantial stone-built semi-detached House, with the Post Office adjoining, is believed to date from around 1700 and retains some original features. It has been in the same family since 1870 and it occupies an excellent location at the foot of the hill, with the Railway Station but a short walk away.
There are 3 full “double” Bedrooms and a roomy Bathroom upstairs and a Hallway, full-depth Lounge, and a big Kitchen/Dining Room on the ground floor. It has a gas-fired Central Heating System and some Double Glazing.
Alongside “Askew Gate House” there is the former Post Office. This had a connecting doorway ( since blocked up ) and comprises a big ground floor room and an Upper Room. This offers some potential to be converted to a bijou cottage ( stp ) or to extend the already spacious main house so that it becomes even more substantial.
Outside, there is a lovely big Garden together with a large Car-Parking Area ( suitable for several vehicles) with double-gates giving very easy access.
Whilst the entire property does require some tlc it will be readily seen that “Askew Gate House” could be transformed and become a diamond of a family home.
“Askew Gate House” could well become quite Tickety Boo!
