Detached, stone built in Lakeland slate, and unique to the area, Lucerne is nestled behind its award-winning colourful front garden along private Langrigge Drive.
Primly-pruned hedging borders the colour-burst of blooms in the flower beds, and a swathe of bowling-green trim lawn. Park along the roomy driveway (there is also an immaculately kept and spacious garage ahead) before heading to the large, glazed porch.
Engineered-wood provides a robust floor for the atrium, before stepping through onto the candy-striped carpet of the light and bright entrance hall.
For inclement weather, a door on the left provides direct access into the hall from the garage, saving wet footprints and slippery shopping bags. Smartly presented and with plenty of space for storage or even gym equipment.
Take the oak door to the right where a sitting room, bathed in light from a broad bay window, awaits. Bright and spacious, a gas fire is currently housed within a fireplace, though a log burner could be installed here too.
Another rectangle of window lies to the left of the fireplace, inviting more daylight into this neutrally-decorated and cheerful lounge. Built in the 1940s, handsome cornicing is illuminated overhead.
Plush carpet and soft décor also await in the second room on the right. Formal dining room, snug lounge or children’s play room. Tasteful, patterned wallpaper and attractive architraves decorate this room, which could also serve as an additional fourth bedroom, ideal for a relative with mobility needs.
A large fireplace with recessed mirror could house a wood-burning stove, an idea the current owners have considered.
The heart, stomach and centre of the home, the kitchen, lies directly ahead from the front door.
Immensely spacious, a dining area is currently located, while a neat breakfast bar curves around to the left ahead in this vast, L-shaped culinary space.
Buff-toned tiles line the floor, complementing the gleaming worktops and oak units. Cleverly designed, every inch of space is devoted to storage…note the many in-built wine racks sprinkled about the kitchen!
Other integrated elements include an electric double oven, gas hob, American-style fridge-freezer and dishwasher.
From the kitchen sink, look out over the swathes of green in the garden beyond. A Velux above invites even more light in.
In this eternally-unfurling kitchen, turn another corner to discover a utility room replete with plumbing for washer and dryer. There is even a sparkling shower room complete with a sink and WC.
Returning to the hall, take the broad staircase up to the first floor, where three spacious bedrooms await.
Love lake views? Sneak a peek from the front right bedroom, with its bountiful bay serving up a slice of Lake Windermere to its occupants. With a wealth of built-in wardrobes, storage need never be an issue here.
A natural master bedroom, with its array of storage and views, however a contender for this title is located to the rear of Lucerne.
Private, peaceful, enjoying leafy views of the back garden and beyond, this spacious would-be master bedroom is also furnished with its own elegant en-suite.
Super solid 1940s walls mean that whichever master you opt for, a peaceful night’s sleep awaits – no snore can penetrate the depth of this stone!
Finally, overlooking the front garden, a further third bedroom awaits. Decorated as impeccably as its siblings, the soft sage green reflects the verdant views out over the front. A winning trio of bedrooms.
Providing restful refreshment to all three bedrooms is the large family bathroom. Decorated in muted sand tones, a walk-in shower to the left is mirrored by a large, deep bath to the right. Stash the shampoos, conditioners and other lotions and potions in the wooden storage unit beneath the sink.
Lawn wraps around the rear to the side, providing so much space for children and pets to play on. Fenced off and dog friendly, this is a garden for sheer enjoyment and minimal maintenance. There is even a handy shed for the mower and other tools.
