Quiet and peaceful, only moments from the centre of Bowness yet a world away from the clamour; tucked behind a vision of trees, Old Moss is a true Lakeland oasis.
Off the Kendal Road, pass by St Martin’s Church and Burnside Hotel and Spa, before turning into a private road serving only a handful of exclusive homes.
Set in the middle of wraparound gardens, Old Moss, so quiet and peaceful, awaits.
Parking for three cars on the driveway, in addition to a further two in the double garage with electric up and over doors.
Escaping the elements, upon entry to Old Moss a feeling of comfort pervades.
Open and spacious; even with the glass doors closed, from the entrance hall glimpses of the rear garden can be spied ahead through the magnificent bay windows in the formal dining room.
Carpeted in soft grey with creamy white walls, a palatial sitting room is located on the left, beyond the staircase.
Emanating a cosy glow throughout the room, a striking white marble hearth and surround houses a gas fire.
Expansively sized, sense the shift in ambiance as the room extends: to one end a sumptuous winter snug, and to the other a glorious summer garden room, with patio doors gliding open to bring the outdoors in.
Overlooking the bounteous gardens at Old Moss is another sociable room next door; the elegantly designed dining room.
So formal and welcoming at once; here is a room that has played host to many dinner parties.
Stunning views rush forth from the large bay window, spilling light throughout the room and through the glazed internal door into the entrance hall beyond.
Entertain and make merry to your heart’s content, with ample room for ten or more diners around the table, this welcoming room is ideal for both festive occasions and everyday dining.
Sneak a peek at the private study, next door to the dining room. So conveniently close to the kitchen, this could comfortably be used as a snug, reading room or even play room for younger children; such is the versatility of Old Moss.
Nestled close to the front entrance is a cloakroom with WC, hand basin and cupboards. Well heated by a feisty radiator – where better to dry out Lakeland walking gear?
Lastly, take a peep at the kitchen of Old Moss; well-provisioned with an array of appliances.
Cook up a veritable feast for family and friends using the Hotpoint fridge, easy-wipe-clean Logik induction hob and Beko double oven – less than one year old and hardly used.
Light-toned laminate floor complements the tasteful Farrow and Ball ‘Elephant’s Breath’ décor on the walls.
For those desiring a modern, open-plan style of cooking and dining, a number of options present themselves. Consider reconfiguring the layout of the downstairs rooms slightly by removing the adjoining wall between the dining room and study to create a light-filled modern culinary space overlooking the garden, turning the current kitchen into a study or utility.
Currently housing a utility room, fitted with plumbing that feeds an outdoor tap, the garage is separated from the main house by a small passageway. Potential here to create annex living accommodation, subject to obtaining the relevant permissions.
Returning to the entrance hall, take the staircase up to the first floor, where four bountiful bedrooms await.
Poised above the rear garden, bedroom three, located on the left, is abundantly sized for a third bedroom. So spacious, it currently houses twin beds – ideal for guests. An array of built-in cupboards provides an abundance of storage.
Ahead from the staircase lies a most versatile room.
Bedroom four features a series of built-in wardrobes, one of which contains a foldout bed in similar style to a studio flat. Ideal as a nursery or a guest bedroom, this room also connects to the master bedroom – for which it currently serves as a rather decadent dressing room…
So spacious, the master bedroom also overlooks the rear garden with its vision of trees, shrubs and colourful springtime flowers.
Sneak a peek at the three-piece en-suite, with WC, bath and overhead shower and wash basin. So spacious, there is scope to create a true spa-like haven here. A heated towel rail features alongside mirrored cabinets.
Returning to the landing, pass by the large linen closet before stealing a glimpse at the lavishly-sized family bathroom.
Fitted with a bath, wash basin, WC and bidet, there is scope to add a separate shower if required, so spacious is this room.
Opposite, bedroom two rivals its precursors in terms of capacity. Note the wealth of built-in wardrobes, a clue as to the scope of space available. Cotton white walls give way to a large window, providing pleasing views out to the neighbouring greenery.
With gardens extending to the front, rear and side of Old Moss, a wealth of wildlife is concealed within the boughs overhead and the surrounding bushes, teeming with blossoms in the summer months.
Listen to the laconic buzz of the bumbling bees from a selection of seating areas, including the expansive terrace outside the sitting room, well protected from the wind and elements. Another pleasant spot is located to the right of the bay window, a peaceful place to enjoy a morning cuppa or evening aperitif.
Low maintenance, lawn gives way to mature borders which come into their own in the springtime following the appearance of snowdrops and daffodils.
The dry-stone wall at end of the garden is quintessentially ‘Lake District’, whilst the summer house with its electric supply is handy for plugging in the lawn mower.
Watch with interest as the seasons change, from nodding daffodils to bursting hydrangeas and willowy wisteria.
