4 Bedroom Detached House
Come inside to the entrance porch. With cupboards and shelves lining the way, freshen up in the cloakroom opposite.
Follow the smell of freshly baked scones through into your Lakeland kitchen. Here, all your farmhouse kitchen dreams are breathed into life, from the burr oak paneling and terracotta tiles to the stained timber doors.
With so many drawers and cupboards for storing all your cookery books and ingredients, this kitchen is every cook’s fantasy. Feast your eyes on the bucolic views out over the garden and acres beyond.
Your family dining room will entice you through from the kitchen. The rustic timber beams and modern spotlighting create the perfect family farmhouse dining area.
The slate style laminate floor of your conservatory links seamlessly beyond. Recline and admire the panoramic garden and countryside views out to Bethecar Fell. Why not get some fresh air into your lungs… within ten minutes this moderate walk is easily accessed across your two fields and the views from the top are simply breathtaking.
Follow us through the paned door into your lounge. Your Jøtul woodburner easily steals the show; a central feature sitting proudly in its stone inset upon a smooth slate hearth and surrounding stained beamed frame. Look closely and you will spy a series of patterned holes in the wood, an alluring clue to its history. Perhaps this timber dates back to the days of smoking or curing bacon by the open fire. Or perhaps even further back as so many wooden beams in Lakeland homes originate from old ships.
Climb the spindled staircase up to your spacious landing and push open the door leading to your master bedroom. Take a moment to stand by the window as the sun sets over the Rusland Valley, watching the turquoises melt into purple, pink and red hues, before settling down into your bed. Admire the stained timber doors of your built in wardrobes, plenty of room for all your outfit choices.
Down the corridor, three more bedrooms await, with enthralling views of the garden, courtyard and fells. Perfect for children, teenagers, visiting grandchildren, and a multitude of visitors. After a day exploring your five acres of land, scrub up in the family bathroom.
Returning downstairs, slip out to the side of the farmhouse. Take a seat on the sunny slate patio and survey your surroundings. As the sun beats down, close your eyes for a moment and listen to the melodic tinkling of the beck which runs through your garden.
In the summer months when the lawn is glossy and verdant, take a stroll amongst the rhododendrons and admire the delicate white blooms. Watch the children scamper up the mature trees…perfect for tree houses! Cast your eyes to the side and allow your mind to imagine the possibilities for the two paddocks in your eye line. Perfect for ponies, and with the outbuildings ripe for conversion into stables, is now the time to finally follow that equestrian dream?
