Set within the prestigious Abbotsgate estate, built by leading local property developer Russell Armer in the early 1990s, discover the charms of No. 5, a home that fits in perfectly with the chic and stylish, yet laidback Kirkby scene.

Pull up along the quiet lane, where there is ample parking for four cars on the drive alongside a two car, secure garage. Handsomely built in stone and set upon one of the largest plots on the development, make your way to the front door, noting the bark borders and evergreen planting amidst the stone paving.

Enter through an elegant front door, emerging onto stylish Moduleo flooring, hardwearing, water and scratch resistant, extending in an individually laid herringbone style throughout the home. From above, edgy pendant lighting casts down glow, courtesy of edgy designer Buster + Punch. Light and airy, with white woodwork and anthracite grey tones to the walls, the affable personality of this home reveals itself instantly.

Setting the scene for the home, eclectic décor embellishes the cloakroom on the left, with WC and wash basin set above chequered black and white flooring, whilst to one wall, Havwoods lay claim to its reclaimed hardwood features.

Next on the left, sneak a peek at a large room, formerly used as a lounge and currently serving as a bedroom. Carpeted in grey with another Havwoods reclaimed wood feature wall, this light and bright bedroom could easily serve as an office or snug.

Directly ahead from the entrance hall, make your way into the kitchen, the sociable hub of the home.

Matte, handleless units house an enormity of storage, also incorporating a bank of four Siemens pyrolytic self-cleaning ovens (one of which is a steam oven) and twin warming drawers. Additional integrated appliances include a 900-watt Siemens microwave, ground bean coffee machine, Quooker instant boiling tap, dishwasher and full height fridge and freezer. Within the sleek white worktops an impressive Siemens induction hob features an inbuilt extractor, sucking moisture down beneath the units and negating the need for an intrusive extractor hood.

Dine at the breakfast bar, or flow out through the bifolding doors, where the composite decking follows the same motif as the Moduleo flooring indoors for a seamless connection: the garden is simply an extension of the indoor entertaining space.

Returning to the entrance hall, take the carpeted stairs up to arrive at the lounge, where Moduleo flooring retains harmony with the lower level. Spacious and bright, windows frame views over the landscaped garden to the rear, privately enclosed in freshly rebuilt stone walls and fencing, whilst a balcony to the front offers the perfect vantage point to soak up views out over Barbondale, Casterton and the fells.

Contemporary décor features shades of deep blue, lifted by white. Timothy Oulton lighting shines down over the large dining table, with abundant space for sofas and side tables. A third window draws light from within the feature wall.

Continue up the stairs to discover the remaining three bedrooms. Turning left from the landing, refreshment awaits in the family bathroom, panelled to the lower walls in sea foam blue and furnished with a modern egg-shaped bath, wall mounted wash basin and WC alongside a heated ladder radiator for towels.

From here, continuing left, make your way into the master suite, a capacious space with soothing mocha tones to the walls. Located to the front of the home, windows to the east and south deliver ample sunlight throughout. A box bay window overlooking the front is the perfect space for a chair or crib, whilst a luxurious ensuite is also at hand.

Set the temperature before you step into the shower, courtesy of a remote control. Fully tiled, there is also a wash basin and WC. Light streams down from a high Velux window above.

Along the landing, discover ample storage in the linen closet, before making your way through to a third bedroom ahead, furnished with built-in storage. Plushly carpeted in grey this sunny bedroom peacefully overlooks the rear garden. Due to the staggered nature of the homes on the Abbotsgate development, there is a keen sense of privacy to the bedrooms - and indeed all the rooms - at No. 5.

Turning right out of this room arrive at a serene nursery, carpeted underfoot and with panelling to a feature wall. Light enters through a high-set horizontal window fitted with blinds. Consider the potential to utilise this bedroom as a home office.

Return downstairs, continuing to the lower ground level where there is direct access to the integral garage. Furnished with units to one corner, this utility area is plumbed for washer and dryer. A fantastic space, it could also function as a home gym.

Garden
Centrally set within its plot, ample parking extends to the front of No. 5 equipped with the latest technology EV charging point courtesy of Zappi, while to the rear, the south facing suntrap garden is a secure and private entertaining haven.

Pull back the bifolding doors to flow out from the kitchen onto the Millboard decking, premium, slip resistant and low maintenance with a weathered oak finish. Fully recycled, this composite decking is installed on a solid plastic subbase that will never rot, future proofed for peace of mind.

High walls and fencing to the rear ensure a truly private feel. Beyond the decking, reclaimed bricks extend out, sourced from Yorkshire, to where a freestanding pizza oven and BBQ are currently housed.

Raised lawn adds another textural element to the garden, ideal for children or pets. Soak up the sun from midday until late in the evening in summer. A substantially sized garden, should you wish to add a summer house or garden room, electric cabling has already been laid to the rear.
