Full description:DIRECTIONS Driving away from Grange over Sands town centre via The Esplanade, continue driving along passing the playing fields and then shortly afterwards drive up the steep hill by the nursing home. As the road starts to level you will pass the modern houses of Over Sands View. Take the next turning on the left-hand side into Carter Road and as you reach the right-hand bend in the road, bear to the left and continue along Carter Road descending down the hill where you will very shortly see a stone-pillared entrance on your right- hand side which has a name plaque 'Seawood'. Following this driveway approach to Seawood House, you will shortly arrive in front of the building with the parking for the ground floor apartment seen immediately ahead of you beneath the carport.

LOCATION Seawood House is discreetly located within mature grounds and within the popular Kents Bank area of Grange over Sands, a popular Edwardian town that sits on the northern shores of Morecambe Bay. The immediate area is predominantly residential, however there is a railway station close by which is perfect for commuters, along with a local bus service. A short walk along Carter Road, you will find yourself on Cart Lane where there is access onto The Promenade where you can enjoy the fabulous sea views and maybe also use some of the recreational areas which include tennis courts, mini-golf, basketball court and also several outdoor fitness machines. The Promenade is also home to two small cafes and a children's play area.

DESCRIPTION Entering the building via a highly glazed, communal entrance hall, you will see a winding staircase leading to the upper floor flat and also a private door leading into the ground floor apartment.

Walking into the apartment, a rather fabulous open reception hall welcomes you, boasting an array of character detail which includes panelling, stained-glass windows and panes to the internal doors, an impressive central archway and coving around the ceiling. This open plan space provides two distinct areas with one currently being utilised as an office area and a second more relaxing and cosy snug which offers the perfect amount of space for a comfortable easy chair.

The generous proportions continue throughout this apartment, firstly into the lounge which has a beautiful pink granite fireplace with open grate, an impressively high ceiling with decorative cornicing and also a large bay window with full height windows.

The kitchen is a naturally bright and airy room with windows to the front and side elevations and glazed French-style doors opening onto a patio. There is an extensive range of fitted units with traditional oak panelled doors and a solid timber work surface which extends throughout and incorporates a stainless steel, under-mounted sink with a glass trim and drainer.

There is also an integrated double oven with grill, a microwave oven, a ceramic hob with cooker hood and space for a dishwasher. The large breakfast island takes centre stage within the room, providing further extensive storage and plenty of space for your family or friends to enjoy informal dining.

There are two fabulous sized bedrooms, the much larger of the two occupying the front position within this apartment and enjoying beautiful views into the gardens with seasonal views to Morecambe Bay. There is extensive fitted wardrobe furniture incorporating a dressing area with fitted vanity mirror.

The second bedroom has 'his and hers' built-in wardrobes with glazed/leaded panes to the panelled doors. A further door leads you into the en-suite shower room which is attractively finished and provides a walk-in shower area which incorporates a low-level seat and also has a dual head shower fixture and a high-level window with an extraction system. There is a rectangular-shaped, wall-mounted wash basin with cabinet storage beneath and a WC alongside.

Returning to the reception hall, there is a staircase which descends down into the basement which is fully decorated and currently used as a home gym. There is open access into a small laundry room where there are fitted units, a single drainer sink, plumbing for a washing machine and space for a clothes dryer.

There is also a separate, fully enclosed cylinder cupboard alongside which houses the pressurised hot water heating system.

Completing this impressive property is the family sized bathroom which has a traditional three-piece suite in white including a panelled bath which has a shower fitted over, a wash hand basin and WC. There are also beautiful stained glass windows and an electric heated towel rail.

Externally, the apartment benefits from ample parking with the ground floor apartment having 3 private parking spaces including a carport plus one allocated space for guest parking. There is also a private yard area to the rear with access to two outbuildings.
