One Thorne Bank is a spacious semi detached three or four bedroom family home, extensively refurbished by the current owners to offer beautifully-presented accommodation with a contemporary feel.

There is also a large garage with a separate, self-contained one bedroom flat above.

The property stands in extensive mature gardens and grounds which extend to approximately 0.75 of an acre and include two substantial former piggeries and a summerhouse. It has gas-fired heating to radiators and double glazing, is approached along an imposing tree-lined driveway and forms part of a detached former doctor’s residence.

This was divided approximately 50 years ago into two well-proportioned character homes enjoying panoramic views over the surrounding countryside from the majority of windows, with the Trough of Bowland in the far distance.

It is pleasantly located on the edge of the popular village of Great Eccleston, which offers a wide range of facilities and amenities including two village schools, churches, public houses, doctors surgery and dentist plus a range of shops and a weekly market.

Great Eccleston is approximately six iles from the market town of Garstang, approximately five miles from Poulton-le-Fylde, and is also well placed for access to the motorway network and commuting to the Fylde coast or the cities of Lancaster or Preston.

A most attractive feature of this home are the substantial mature private grounds which include lawns, paved sitting areas, paddock area, vegetable garden, established shrubs, bushes and trees, some of which are protected by Tree Preservation Orders.

The timber summerhouse is situated to take full advantage of the views of the gardens and surrounding countryside. The lounge and dining room both have free standing fireplaces while the kitchen is well appointed with a range of base and wall cupboards with under unit lighting, pelmet lighting and rolled edge worktops.

The master bedroom on the second floor is off a spacious landing which also has a shower room, bedroom two is an attractive room with a range of built-in wardrobes, bedroom two has a feature archway and bay window, bedroom three is currently used as a second sitting room and bedroom four could also be a study.
