IF a quirky medieval property is something you had in mind for your next move, this Barrow property ticks all the boxes.

An original gate house close to Furness Abbey, a former monastery founded almost 900 years ago, the home is brimming with history and charm.

It is even built with Cumbrian stone and set within its own private walls.

The five-bedroom property sits in Abbey Road.

It is currently on the market for £399,995.

Spread across one floor, on top of the five bedrooms, with one of which including an en-suite, the house is made up of a reception room, dining room, kitchen, utility room, bathroom and an impressive garden.

The charming property is accessed through a breathtaking archway in the walls of the building.

It leads through onto the driveway which has plenty of space for at least four vehicles.

A great location for large families who own multiple cars, or for those who like to have lots of visitors.

The bright and low-maintenance garden is set over different levels and includes sitting areas, planted areas and pathways — a paradise for those who enjoy the great outdoors.

It’s a huge space for the whole family to enjoy, with lots of room for socialising.

The spacious areas carry on throughout the inside of the property, with the most impressive being the large reception room.

The room contains a feature gas fire and two windows to let in the light.

The room has access to the front garden patio and the courtyard.

Although the medieval property is surrounded by history, there is nothing dated about the wifi connection.

The average broadband speed within the postcode is 67Mb — a great relief for big families who require lots of gadgets and streaming services connected to the internet all at once.
