LOCATION Rockland Road is located in a quieter part of the town yet it is only a short journey to the shops including family run Butcher's, Bakery and Fruit & Vegetable shops. The community is also served by larger retailers too, including Co-op and Spar shops. Several pubs and cafes give you options for good food with a Fish & Chip shop and Chinese restaurant/takeaway offering you something a little different.

The long promenade offers a lovely walk, great views over Morecambe Bay, recreational facilities and cafes dotted along the route. Transports links are provided by a regular bus and rail service.

DESCRIPTION Rocklands and Low Lodge form a substantial portion of a former Gentleman's residence, commanding a strong position within its elevated garden plot providing fine views across the grounds and wonderful panoramic views from the upper floors to Morecambe Bay. A sweeping driveway leads you up to the extensive parking area with open plan lawn covered gardens with mature trees. The external stone steps of Rocklands leads up to the heavy panelled entrance door with marble pillars limestone pediment above.

Walking into the entrance vestibule, you are greeted with so much architectural detailing, from the characteristic high ceiling and beautiful pierced cornice detailing, tiling to the walls and impressive glazed mahogany doors with decorative etchings to the glazing.

The immense character and sheer opulence continues through into the reception hall with a marble pillared arch and ornate tiled floor. An impressive sweeping staircase takes centre stage and coloured/leaded glass panes to the door beneath.

The two principal reception rooms of this property continue to reaffirm the standing of this property with intricate mouldings to the ceiling areas, substantial bay windows and grand fireplaces.

There is a less formal family lounge to the rear of the property, which has a built in storage cupboard and internal access into the adjacent Low Lodge. Alongside the lounge is a separate WC and a private home study. A large, highly glazed modern extension has been added to the side of the property, providing a sympathetic addition, which serves as a fabulous entertaining room that has direct access onto the gardens.

Completing the ground floor accommodation is the kitchen, where there are plenty of fitted wall and base cabinets with a large expanse of work surface, space for a range style cooker and an inset sink unit. The room is naturally light with a low breakfast bar for four people and an external door allows direct access into the rear courtyard.

There is access beneath the main staircase down into the cellar where there are several rooms including a laundry area with each having excellent head clearance.

The first floor landing leads to the first four double bedrooms. There is an impressive master bedroom with a five piece en-suite bathroom, which includes a roll top bath, a corner shower, WC, bidet and wash basin. This floor also has a family bathroom with a traditional three-piece suite with shower installed over the bath and a separate WC accessed from the landing.

The second floor leads to the remaining four double bedrooms, the two rooms at the front enjoying the best of the panoramic views over Morecambe Bay.

Lastly, there is a three-piece shower room with laundry facility, with plumbing for a washing machine, space for a dryer and fitted work surface above. The sanitary ware includes a WC with wall mounted wash basin and shower cubicle alongside.

The adjacent Low Lodge benefits from its own entrance, as well as having internal access from Rocklands.

Similarly, Low Lodge features architectural detailing with its castellated walls, wood panelling and fabulous stained/leaded glass panes with decorative botanical insets.

The living area offers a modern feel, with the open plan lounge-dining space offering good proportions and views of the grounds with glimpses of the bay. The timber panelling across the walls remains, a hint to this rooms former use as a Billiards Room.
