EDWARDIAN elegance abounds in this beautiful four-bedroom residence close to Grange-over-Sands.

Meadow Grove, at Carter Road, Kents Bank, is a detached property that has been lovingly maintained, with two reception rooms, four bedrooms, fabulous gardens and scenic views across Morecambe Bay.

On the market with Thomson Hayton Winkley for £550,000, this fine period house was built in the early 1900s and has kept many of its original features, from plaster mouldings to deep skirting boards.

At a glance, the accommodation features a substantial entrance hall with timber and lead-glass door, sitting room with open fireplace and bay window, family dining kitchen with original fireplace, shower room, utility room, store and porch on the ground floor; three double bedrooms, a fourth bedroom/study and a family bathroom on the first floor; and a cellar on the lower ground floor.

Meadow Grove is reached through two gated entrances and is surrounded by mature gardens, with a gravelled driveway offering plenty of off-road parking.

From the sitting room, views overlooking the bay can be enjoyed through the bay window. There is a traditional, art deco-style cast-iron open fire with tiled hearth and painted surround; and period details such as cornicing, a ceiling rose, picture rail and dado rail.

The family room has double-glazed French doors to the terrace, another art deco-style tiled fireplace with hearth and surround, and painted panelling up to the dado rail.

The family kitchen is the heart of the home with its excellent wall and floor cupboards, Corian worktops and upstands, and island unit with solid oak worktop. There is space for a freestanding range cooker, with tiled splashback and extractor hood; space for a fridge freezer, plumbing for a dishwasher, and a built-in microwave. Light pours into the dining area thanks to three windows and two Velux windows, all double-glazed, and there is underfloor heating.

The useful utility room also has underfloor heating, plus a good range of floor cupboards, a sink, plumbing for a washing machine, space for a tumble dryer and freezer, and fitted shelves. The handy ground-floor shower room offers a vanity basin, fully tiled shower cubicle and loo; and also houses the gas central heating boiler and loft access.

Up to the first floor, the landing and the first of four bedrooms have bay views through sliding sash windows. The landing features original plaster ceiling mouldings, a cornice and dado rail.

A white three-piece suite gives a fresh feel to the family bathroom. There is underfloor heating, a heated towel radiator, built-in cupboard and mirror with lighting.

The lower ground floor cellar and the stone-built workshop have heating, light and power. The workshop also features an original stone sink, fitted workbench and shelves, and there is a toilet attached.

Outside, a substantial lawned garden and grounds surround this lovely property, together with a gazebo, greenhouse, fruit and vegetable patches, terraced seating areas and borders of mature trees, established shrubs and plants.
