Welcome to Main Street
Welcome to Main Street in the peaceful and historic fishing village of Overton, positioned southwest of Morecambe on the Lune Estuary. Main Street runs through the heart of the village and is made up of historic buildings with The Globe pub dating back to the 1600s. The Heysham bypass gives access to Heysham Port and connects to the Bay Gateway and the M6 Motorway, about a 15-minute drive.
The village has a Primary School, Garden Centre, Two Pubs, 17th Century Church, Playground and Shop. Lovely walks are available in most directions but heading inland down the River lune to Snatchams Pub has beautiful views across to Glasson Dock and up to Lancaster.
Approaching number 21 you will be struck by the picturesque nature of the property. Set back from the road in a row of cottages each with a stone wall and gate, a stone path guides you past the mature and well-maintained garden filled with flowers and space for a table and chairs to catch the morning sun. The house has a good proportion front porch with plenty of space to store shoes, boots, and coats before stepping inside.
The Ground Floor Living
From the porch, we enter the main open-plan living area of the house. The cozy cottage feel with be evident immediately with wooden beams in the ceilings, an open staircase separating the front and rear sections of the house, exposed original stonework, and a multifuel log burning stove in a wonderful stone hearth. As mentioned the open staircase splits the space in two creating a sitting room in the front perfect for sitting in front of the fire and a second reception room towards the back of the house that would make a very nice dining area.
Continuing through the ground floor to the kitchen which is placed in an extension to the rear. A galley-style kitchen with countertops adjacent on either wall with wall-mounted units for lots of storage, space for freestanding oven, fridge freezer, and washing machine is available and there are two large windows offering views of gardens. You can also access the small rear yard and off-street parking via the back door.
The First Floor
Returning to the main living rooms and taking the stairs we will get to the first floor. At the top of the stairs take a left and enter the Master Bedroom, situated at the front of the house with views over the front garden. Much like downstairs, we find exposed wooden beams and on your left-hand side are large floor-to-ceiling integral wardrobes helping to create more space. There is also an En-Suite W.C that sits above the stairs with a built-in sink unit a very handy and pleasant addition to the home.
Turning right at the top of the stairs brings us to another charming bedroom again with the period features we have seen throughout. As it is positioned to the rear of the property to the roof does slope away on the ceiling. A second door through this room leads you to the study, perfect for a home office, which is very much in demand. Then through the study, we find the well-sized recently fitted modern three-piece family bathroom. Tastefully decorated with contemporary tiling and units that perfectly compliment the rest of the house.
The Workshop, Parking & Fruit Garden
This house is truly blessed with what it has to offer outside. From the kitchen, there is a quaint yard that is great for plant pots and a clothing line with a small outhouse/storage room just sitting off the back of the kitchen. From here there is a communal driveway and shared access for the neighbours to the street and also leads on to the private driveway that belongs to this property.
The driveway is finished off by a handy carport that is framed by a superb 40-year-old Wisteria Tree and can fit up to three cars. The carport slopes down and separates the driveways and has a door that leads to the Garden, there is also a small workshop attached that has space for two workbenches and is powered. Then from the workshop, you can access the summer house with its glorious views of the 174ft garden. All glass fronted with large dual doors makes this is a perfect place to soak in the ambiance of the village.
The garden is wonderful, separated from the neighbours by wire fences, and stretches down for 174ft. The summer house opens up onto a dual lawn with a stone path leading along the right-hand side then taking you to a vegetable patch that sits at the halfway point of the garden. The garden then opens up to a small orchard with some fruit trees and a wild garden for the bees and insects then we finally come to an end with a Sweet Chestnut Tree, wonderful at Christmas Time, blackcurrant bushes, gooseberry bushes and raspberry canes, all which produce a good crop every year.
