Only three minutes’ walk from Oxenholme train station with its links to London, Manchester and the Lake District, Whitewalls strikes the perfect balance for those who love to work hard and then play hard on the fells.
Park up in the larger-than-average garage, with space also available for another car in front. Facing a patchwork of fields, the outlook is so peaceful.
Through the front door and into the entrance hall, the space opens up. White walls surround, knitted together by solid-oak flooring.
Complementing the modernist and minimalistic décor of Whitewalls, a Karndean floor featuring a blend of blacks and greys adds luxury to the family bathroom on the left.
Illuminated by LED lighting, underfloor heating provides warmth, even on the chilliest of Cumbrian mornings. Ideal for that first step out from the spacious, walk-in, double power-shower.
The entrance hall ahead transforms into an open-plan dining area, flowing on to the kitchen. Bespoke shelving lines this space, adding to the storage proffered by the built-in cupboard.
Step through to the contemporary kitchen, where dark-toned Karndean flooring balances the white cupboard units. Topped with solid oak counters, these units also house a ceramic hob and top-of-the-range Miele oven. Bright and light, LED lighting amplifies the natural light that flows in from two sides.
All the essentials can be found in here including an integrated dishwasher, fridge and freezer. There is also plenty of space for a washing machine.
From the front door, slip through to the master bedroom. Spacious and sun-filled, this bright bedroom features an array of fully-fitted wardrobes that stretch up to meet the tall ceiling.
Herdwick wool carpet is gentle on the toes, so why not linger by the window to catch the most magnificent sunsets across the fields ahead?
Ahead from the dining area is the second double bedroom, beautifully bedecked in zesty Farrow and Ball. Garden views filter in through the window, providing a pretty backdrop. A recess in the wall is the perfect place for clothes and is currently fitted with a clothes rail and chest of drawers.
For those who love to be in tune with nature, nowhere is better set to bring the outdoors in than the modern light and open lounge.
Solid oak flooring contrasts gratifyingly with crisp white walls which reach up to the high cornicing above.
Set within the chimney breast recess is a television, whilst a pair of French doors open out onto the garden.
Beyond the patio doors, a truly inspired garden awaits.
Created in collaboration with a Cheshire-based designer, this 250-square-foot serenity space has been carefully crafted to provide peace and relaxation for its visitors.
Surrounding the pond, and throughout the garden, specially-sourced plants from Inglefield Nursery in Staveley create an exotic backdrop. Bamboo, palms, grasses and ferns combine to create space that is evergreen.
Meander down the garden, to an artificially-lawned central section with sofas and a large umbrella (perfect for catching the noon-time sun), before reaching the bottom terrace which basks in the last of the sun – sometimes as late as 9pm in the summer.
To the bottom of the garden also stands a pretty summer house, which doubles as an art studio. A true extension of the home, also located in this miniature Eden is a contemporary outdoor office, which serves as a third bedroom when friends and family come to stay.
