A former coach house, this peacefully-located home has since undergone a total refit and modernisation. The result? A contemporary and cosy home, resonating with the echoes of its heritage.
Park on the cobbled parking area to the front (room for two or three cars here) and head for the whitewashed, tiled porch.
Ahead, an internal, oak stable-door with a square porthole, flanked on either side by glazed side panels, opens out into a bright entrance hall.
Tiling continues underfoot, stretching out into the utility room on the far left. Across the hall, overspill storage for coats and shoes is available under the stairs.
Oak doors, grooved and robust, lead off to the left and right, whilst a rich oak staircase lined in plush grey carpet rises up ahead. The finer details add to the quality finish; note the curved wooden skirtings throughout The Coach House.
Bright and inviting, bedroom two lies first on the left off the entrance hall.
Inset spotlighting creates an even illumination in the evening, whilst natural light pours in through the window throughout the day. Spacious and bright, there is room for a double bed in addition to bedside furniture – and even space for a built-in wardrobe in the recess. Bag your first view of Loughrigg and the peaks of the Langdales from the window.
Across the hall, an internal oak door provides internal access to the large garage; a handy workshop space with a Belfast sink and electricity.
Follow the gentle curve of the oak staircase up to the first floor, emerging onto a spacious landing that also serves as a light and airy dining space.
Cook up a feast for friends and family in the contemporary kitchen to the right. Charcoal-toned granite surfaces lie above and below the softly curved edges of the polished-finish wooden units. An excellent fit, the cupboards curve into the corners in order to maximise storage space.
Integrated Siemens appliances at The Coach House include a dishwasher, induction hob, double oven and washing machine.
Return across the carpeted landing through the glazed triple oak folding doors into the sitting room.Bright and comfortable, light streams in from all angles through the arched window and small, recessed picture-window.
Carpeted in pale oatmeal, a multi-fuel stove takes pride of place on the left, sitting beneath a solid oak mantel and surmounting a slate hearth. Perfect for cosy nights in.
More peaks to see through the lens here; Coniston Old Man, Wetherlam, Wansfell Pike and Loughrigg to name a few.
A third bedroom, currently employed as a sunny study lies ahead from the landing, along a hallway and on the left.
Misty ocean tones coat the walls of this cosy space. Quiet and comfortable, take inspiration for your work with views out to the Langdales and Loughrigg.
Across the hallway lies a sleek and contemporary bathroom. Ceramic tiles coat the floor and walls. There is also a heated mirror and chrome ladder towel rail. Storage for all your shower room essentials comes in the high calibre glossy white sink unit. The showpiece of this room is its glass-fronted double walk-in shower.
Sneak a peek into the handy guest WC before moving on to the light-filled master bedroom.
So bright, windows to both sides allow for a constant flow of light, with bountiful views out to the lavishly-sized lawn in the natural garden to the rear. Plenty of space to stash those precious purchases in the range of contemporary built-in wardrobes. There is also a dresser with mirror and lighting. Ideal for perfecting your look before heading out to the bars and restaurants of nearby Bowness.
Outdoors, bask in the summer sunshine in your abundance of the garden. Private and peaceful, there is plenty of room for ball games.
Take a seat amidst the mature borders, or catch the rays on the gravelled seating area. The gentle elevation of this softly sloping lawn affords tranquil vistas of the surrounding fields and fells.
