Perfectly positioned minutes from the centre of the active market town of Keswick, Whitbeck is nestled peacefully away from the bustle and buzz – but within easy reach.
To the front, a traditional, spacious lawn, bordered by neatly pruned planting, colourfully lines the long stretch of driveway.
Securely gated, this driveway and its front parking area can accommodate a minimum of three cars, while a garage with separate pedestrian access is also on hand.
Freshly back from a jaunt up Latrigg, hang the waterproofs in the glazed porch before stepping into the warm and welcoming entrance hall. High ceilings stretch above and a white, carpeted and open staircase leads up to the left.
Lightly-toned and robust laminate flooring continues through to the living room on the right.
Emerging into a light and inviting lounge, to the right a bay window frames striking views towards the mighty peaks of Skiddaw and its little brother Latrigg, lit up by the morning sun.
Tucked within the chimney breast, a wood burning stove adds crackling warmth and ambience to the room in the winter months; a perfect accompaniment to the views. Above, illuminated by a ruralistic antler-themed chandelier, the high picture rails accentuate the style and spaciousness of this room.
Open plan by design, the lounge leads through into the dining room, where a central dining table sits beneath a contemporary trinity of pendant lights. Within the recesses flanking the chimney breast is ample space for a dresser and sideboard.
To the side, a door provides direct access to the dining room from the hallway.
Light channels through the dining room from both the bay window in the front lounge and the glazed, bi-fold doors leading through into the garden room to the rear – where laminate gives way to hard wood flooring.
Gaze out, through the trio of tall windows, at the canopy of fells in the distance – including the distinctive topknot of fell walker favourite Cat Bells. Bask in the rays of the sun as it warms the room in the afternoon, before providing a picture-show of sunset colour in the evening.
Directly ahead from the hallway, a door leads to the spacious breakfast kitchen.
Cleverly designed, a dining area is tucked modestly to the right of the main kitchen, set before a fully glazed back door and positioned to soak up maximum countryside views.
Neutral grey slate-style tiling coats the floor, complementing the white units and charcoal worksurfaces. White metro tiles provide splashback protection above the work tops, whilst an array of storage is on hand above and below.
Whilst a handy dishwasher is fitted, the views of the fells through the window above the kitchen sink are reason enough to enjoy a retro rinse of the cups following afternoon tea with friends.
Integrated into the design of the kitchen is also a five-burner gas hob and electric double oven.
To the right, a back door leads to a corridor, where to the left lies a convenient downstairs shower room and access to the garage and to the right access out to the garden.
Upstairs, the views just get better.
To the front, bedroom one looks out to the looming silhouette of Skiddaw and the friendly hump of Latrigg, through a bountiful bay window. Decorated in refined floral wallpaper, with high white ceilings, this king-sized bedroom provides a royal welcome to all.
Soaking up the same mountainous views is bedroom three, a cosy double, decorated in chic grey and white striped wallpaper.
Soft, textured putty tones coat the bathroom to the rear, which contains a large, P-shaped white bath with overhead shower, sink and WC.
Next door, bedroom two, an ample double decorated in graphite-toned rose wallpaper enjoys the last light of the day, overlooking Cat Bells and its neighbouring fells.
For a closer inspection of these undulating fells, slip out to the back garden; peaceful and private and not at all overlooked.
Enjoy summer meals seated at the picnic bench on the Lakeland slate patio outside the kitchen.
Lush lawn gives way to a feature spherically-paved area, behind which planting leads to a gravelled area with a shed and gated access to the fields, beyond which lie the fells. A truly serene spot with sublime views.
