3 Bedroom Cottage
Pulling through the gates and onto the neatly paved flag-stoned drive, there is parking for two or more cars and a pretty Lakeland stone wall. On entry, characterful beams line the walls and ceiling, whilst underfoot the carpet-covered stone floors, curved by centuries of footfall, retain a unique feel.
Continuing through a finely crafted wooden door into the lounge, the quirky character of Burrow House reveals itself. Note the finer details – the cast iron latch, in perfect synchronicity with the character and age of the cottage. Each internal door at Burrow House has been newly fitted by a local carpenter.
Re-wired, re-roofed and with new double glazed UPVC windows throughout, contemporary touches complement the authenticity of the cottage.
Windows to the front and side make the living room a bright and welcoming space. Above, original beams line the ceiling, whilst a cosy open fire sitting amidst its local Lakeland slate surround takes centre stage.
Take the step up to the right of the living room to a large well-lit home office area.
Simple, stylish and sunny; here is the kitchen.
Bright and cheerful, sun splashes in through three windows: one to the side, and two to the back overlooking the rockery garden.
Sky-blue, painted, wooden units also help bring the outside in. Woodgrain-effect flooring continues the country charm, whilst all the modern essentials are on hand including: fridge, electric fan-assisted oven, electric hob and sink.
With space for a standard fridge freezer, there is also a large larder cupboard and access outside through the back door.
The door to the right leads into the dining room. Also accessible from the hallway, beams line the walls and ceiling for a true Tudor feel, whilst the exposed stonework to one wall epitomises rustic charm.
Bold and bright, windows to both the front and rear allow a clear flow of light, ensuring that this cosy cottage retains its cheerful charm. The ideal spot for Sunday dinner with loved ones.
Off the dining room, step through into the back lobby, a useful area which serves well for storage. The downstairs WC, newly floored, is found there and is ideally situated for dinner guests.
Beyond, there is a bonus room. Currently used as a store room, could this amply-sized room with its garden-facing window be the perfect games room?
Head upstairs now and explore the upper floor.
Bedroom two lies at the left of the landing. This bedroom is full of quirky original features including exposed stonework and beamed walls and ceiling.
Windows to the front and back ensure a light and bright feel, with views of the well-manicured garden to the rear.
Beneath one window, a recessed wall provides a natural desk space – the ideal homework spot for any school-goer.
Next door is the most modest of the three bedrooms. Cosy and bright, ideal perhaps for children, you can easily fit two single beds in whilst the low window offers a quirky viewing platform out to the front.
Across the landing is the family bathroom. The bathroom floor is lined in checkerboard black and white vinyl with seafoam wooden panelling. Beyond the frosted window are views of the garden, but there’s nobody about to look in on you. An over-tub shower is also in place.
Finally, explore the master bedroom up two steps to the right of the stairs. Fitted cupboards flank the double bed, facing the large window and its glorious views out to the garden.
Light, bright and so relaxing, enjoy the warmth of the sun in the mornings in this bedroom. Spy the first snowdrops of the year outside from your window, followed by the bright red bursts of azalea blossom in the summer.
Boots on, take a walk about the low-maintenance and vastly sized garden. Follow the central flagstone path leading to the stone-built outhouse with its stable door entrance and neat window; perfect for storing the patio furniture in the winter.
A large, flat, lawn bordered by a tall conifer hedge lies to the left, great for games in the summer time. Follow the steps up to the right of the flagstone to the raised area, with a mixture of shrubs and lawns.
Along the side of Burrow House, are planted heathers and fuchsia whilst there is also space for parking here.
So quiet, so peaceful…and so spacious. What could be better?
