Set back along a leafy lane and only two minutes from the M6, yet surrounded by the sights and sounds of serene countryside, Church Lane House lies opposite the western tower of the 1800s, Grade II listed limestone church of St John, The Evangelist.
Formerly the accompanying vicarage, a contemporary driveway now sweeps up to the left, its illuminated gated entrance heralding your arrival at Church Lane House. The zesty citrus wall creates a feature entrance by the contemporary front door.
Step inside into a spacious entrance hall, where a sleek walnut and glass staircase turns both upward to the bedrooms and down to the impressive double garage.
Fully insulated, with pipework ready for an air source heat pump system, the garage is a dry and comfortable space. Replete with electric up and over door, and even a workbench, there is the potential to create annex accommodation for a loved one subject to the relevant permissions.
Returning to the ground floor, sneak a peek behind a series of walnut doors on the right, concealing a spacious cloakroom (formerly the dining room) fitted with shelving and hanging space, and a neat WC.
Head for the heart of the home to a show-stopping kitchen-diner.
Immediately to the left, a round breakfast table set before full height windows overlooking a patio captures the best of the garden views.
Underfloor heating (featuring throughout the downstairs rooms and in the lounge) warms the porcelain tiles underfoot. Aptly titled ‘Sedimentary’, note the pattern of thin white lines running across their light grey surface.
Cleverly designed, stepping down from the kitchen, the same flooring continues in a slightly lighter hue, the contrast of light and dark helping to demarcate the transition between spaces and preparing residents for the step down.
Off the diner, the utility room provides the home with a wealth of space for additional white goods, there is also a professional coffee machine situated in here, a sink and plenty of storage.
Take the six stairs up to the pitched-roof splendour of the wow-factor living room. As is Church Lane House’s motif, light flows in through the Velux windows above and the enormous floor to ceiling bay window at the far end.
With far-reaching views from the bay window stretching over the fields to Yealand Redmayne, Farleton Knott and the Lakeland fells, spy a berry-laden holly tree to the right and views of the church tower through the Velux lights.
Ideal for those with additional mobility requirements, bedroom two is located on the ground floor and has been thoughtfully designed with accessible extra-width doorways.
Streaming with light, a sitting area sits before the patio doors, providing an indoor sun terrace that can be opened out with access onto a patio with easy access to the driveway for wheelchair users if required.
Sneak a peek at the en-suite, with its touch sensor mirror, low level WC and wash basin and glimmering Porcelanosa tiles. The accessible spacious shower has a drench showerhead with handheld attachment.
Take the wide, walnut staircase with its feature glass balustrade up to the spacious landing, home to a linen cupboard housing the boiler, with picturesque views of the church from the window.
A trio of large windows looks out from the study, nestled on the right, over towards the village of Yealand Conyers and to the local pub, The New Inn – barely more than a four-minute walk away.
On the left, discover bedroom three, currently used as a twin or super-king room, with a large built-in wardrobe and decorated in soothing green oxide with a feature wall of indigo.
Take a tour of bedroom four, playfully decorated in tones of teal and green oxide, with a large window looking out towards the garden.
Each bedroom at Church Lane House accommodates at least a king size bed, and bedroom four, the most diminutive of the offerings, follows suit.
A surprise is in store within the en-suite, which has the distinction of featuring a bath with shower head attachment above.
Lastly, discover the master suite at Church Lane House.
Pause in the sitting area by the floor to ceiling windows and admire the comprehensive view of the garden. From the other end, soak up the moody silhouette of the Lakeland fells with their winter snow coat.
The en-suite features a spacious double shower cubicle with rainfall showerhead and a plum-toned vanity unit housing a Vitra sink alongside a heated towel rail and WC.
Lastly, sneak a peek at the spacious walk-in wardrobe. Plenty of space for shoes and outfits amidst the shelves and hanging space. Even this room is graced with a window, overlooking another patio and the neat vegetable garden.
Explore the perfect balance of lawn, borders and patios in the wraparound garden at Church Lane House.
A boundary fence including beech hedging backs onto fields as far as the eye can see, keeping the garden secure from all but the visiting wildlife and orchestra of birds.
To the furthest corner, a wood shed provides inspiration for the potential addition of a log burner within.
Architecturally a delight to the eye, angled flowerbeds and feature walls of vibrant colour alongside sculptures of geese, sheep, deer and owls adds so much aesthetic interest.
Contemporary planting patterns include olive trees, acers and cordylines for a low maintenance yet thoroughly enchanting garden.
