At the summit of the hill upon which Levens is set, turn off the country lane and take the long, private driveway up to Number Three Hyning House.
Surrounded by farmers’ fields and private woodland belonging to the residents of the five properties on the Hyning House estate, this quirky and characterful home, dating back to the 1700s, was originally owned by the Bagot family, most famously associated with nearby Levens Hall.
Park up in the car port, before heading to the rear door. Upon entry, a quirky trio of steps leads down. Immediately sense the peaceful calm, the character and robustness of this home as its thick stone walls buffer you against the outdoors.
On the left, a small storage cupboard sits within a vintage-style wooden door, with a combi-boiler housed within the hallway cupboard where there is also storage for coats and boots.
Step across the heated, slate-style stone flooring (sourced locally from House of Stone) and into the Howdens kitchen.
Underfloor heating continues in here, beneath the House of Stone slate floor. Stone coloured units are offset by light-toned metro-style splashback tiles. An arched alcove in the wall, lined with oak shelving, is a useful yet rustic touch.
Equipped with a selection of under-and-over units, this practical kitchen also contains a fridge and separate freezer, Rangemaster 90 oven, Franke sink and Hotpoint dishwasher.
Perch in the seat beneath the newly-fitted window and enjoy views over the estuary courtesy of Hyning House’s elevated vantage point.
Dine beneath the gentle chandelier light glow in the charismatic dining room on the right. Bedecked in the original hardwood floor, an original-look spice cupboard within the deep wall is ideal for stashing place settings and other banqueting fancies.
A former fire place has been transformed into a cupboard, adding to the storage options.
Follow the original hardwood flooring ahead, where awaits the spacious yet cosy lounge. Snuggle up in front of the wood burning stove, set atop its slate hearth beneath an oak lintel.
Within recesses, shelved cupboards with built-in lighting are ideal for cherished items. Dressed in ornamental shutters, the deep window frames picture-postcard views of the countryside and the ever-changing course of the estuary.
Slip out of the original front door, beneath the Westmorland porch and onto the private patio, perfect for enjoying the best of the sunshine.
For rest and refreshment, head upstairs where three light and bright bedrooms await.
Step through the door on the left and onto the sandy-toned carpet of bedroom three. Fawn coloured curtains are embellished with an orange floral design – a recurrence in all three bedrooms. A comfortable double bedroom with high ceiling above, take a pew at the window seat and soak up those stunning sea views.
Across the way, a newly-fitted Villeroy and Boch shower is the showstopper of the bathroom. Decorated in buff coloured tiles, with a cream heated towel rail, sink and WC, this house bathroom is both stylish and practical.
Also located upstairs is a handy utility space with plumbing for washing machine.
Facing the front of the house and capturing vistas of Morecambe Bay estuary from its window seat is bedroom two. Replete with built-in wardrobe and fawny carpet, this is the second of three double bedrooms.
At the very end of the landing, lies the master bedroom. Private and inviting, this sumptuously sized master also boasts its own en-suite containing a large shower. Space too for a bath should you desire.
As with all the bedrooms at Number Three, Hyning House, soak up those spectacular bay views from the window seat.
Return to the lounge and head out through the front door to discover the bounteous outdoors that awaits at Hyning House.
