3 Bedroom Semi-Detached House
As you approach the friendly façade of former farmhouse Greensyke, its Georgian Grade II listed heritage is immediately evident and you are transported back to the 17th century, to a simpler time.
Come inside and let us acquaint you with this idyllic country retreat. Step through the deep-set stone porch, a delightful place to sit out in the summer months and soak up the morning rays. In the winter months, settle down, protected by the well-built walls, to watch as the last of the sun melts away.
Opening the front door, something captures you as soon as you walk into the house – an ambience of comfort and warmth. The doors open up invitingly off the main hallway and there is an enticing glimpse of the picture-perfect staircase. Only a short rise before a turn, where the most breathtaking view of majestic Newton Fell awaits you through the large, original glass-paned window.
For now, let us remain downstairs and peek to our left, through into the sitting room. Settle into an armchair and sink back in time in front of the cosy woodburning stove. Absorb yourself in the newspaper crossword, or lose yourself in a favourite novel. Enjoy privacy as the view out across your glorious front garden is secluded thanks to the Lakeland stone wall, so your time here will be uninterrupted.
If you can tear yourself away from the rustic cosiness of this space, across the way lies your other attractive front room, the dashing dining room. Admire the enchanting exposed oak beams, brilliantly bathed in natural light streaming in through the grand Georgian windows. Tuck into a succulent roast pheasant this winter as a fire crackles happily away in its slate hearth.
Follow us through briefly to the study, where you may well find yourself distracted from work courtesy of the tempting views out over the quaint terraced patio. Why not take a break and enjoy a freshly brewed coffee out here whilst admiring the evocative views over the fells?
Onward now to one of our favourites, the beguiling breakfast room where modern meal time meets rustic farmhouse pantry. Step forward onto the timeless slate floor whilst your toes remain toasty thanks to underfloor heating. Enjoy an old-fashioned Christmas Eve family meal around the table, tucking into a warming casserole cooked in the Aga.
Continue through to the stylish and sophisticated kitchen-garden room. Sympathetically architect-designed with a slate roof to meld harmoniously with the original building, this addition to the home will steal your heart.
Come rain or shine, brew up a pot of tea and nestle down to enjoy vistas over your lawned garden across to Newton Fell and the alluring distant fells, including Coniston Old Man, beyond. Catch the glowing summer sunsets and witness the first snows christening the mountaintops in winter. Bliss.
Here, modernity mingles melodiously with vintage, as oak and slate complement concealed lighting to create a dreamy culinary experience. There’s even a downstairs cloakroom, we bet the Georgians would approve of this handy addition.
Climb with us up the striking staircase, pausing to bathe in the glorious view at the window, before reaching your master bedroom.
After a day exploring the myriad walks on your doorstep, including Cartmel Fell, soothe your pleasantly aching limbs in your bubble-filled period slipper bath before tucking in for the night in one of three equally tempting bedrooms.
Speckled with original features, from white painted fireplaces to authentic oak exposed beams, your guests will feel like the master of the house in whichever chamber you appoint them. And with an additional double shower room there’s no morning squabble for first in the bathroom here at Greensyke. Instead, why not use that extra fifteen minutes to sit out in your glorious garden and be at one with nature.

Greensyke has great Holiday Let potential – in the summer, you could look to bring in around £1000 a week, and in winter, around £700 a week. (These figures are estimates from a local Holiday let company.)
