Peacefully positioned on the private Lindeth Drive, Brackenlea House is securely tucked away behind an electric gated entrance. Upgraded from its humble bungalow origins, Brackenlea House is a home transformed, whilst retaining much of its easy one-level-living flow.

Outside, grand designs have seen the garden elegantly landscaped, a host of suntrap terraces and lush bordered lawns, securely fenced along the right of the garden in ornate wrought ironwork, with a stone wall along the rear.

Across the way, protected fields with two friendly horses preserve the peace and tranquility enjoyed at Brackenlea House for future generations.

Pull up on the driveway, upgraded from shale to smooth tarmac by the current owners. An accommodating home even from the outside, there is ample space for several cars, in addition to a garage with electric door and pedestrian access to the home via a utility room.

Steps lead up to the front door, opening to a light, bright and airy entrance hall. Encompassing the footprint of the former bungalow, this entrance hall extends back to the 'garden room' at the rear, flowing out to left and right, as light flows through from three sets of French doors, all opening out to the ample rear terrace and garden.

Ahead and to the right, a door on the corner leads to a handy cloakroom with hanging space for coats and boot storage, alongside a separate WC and wash basin.

Turning right out of this room, pass by the staircase and a glazed door leading out to the patio on your way to the kitchen. Light and bright, this Atlantis kitchen offers an abundance of storage within its many cupboards and drawers, furnished with an array of integrated appliances including: a Neff microwave and double oven with warming drawer; induction hob with sunken extractor fan; dishwasher; concealed refuse and recycling stores and fridge-freezer. Further free-standing freezer storage can be found in the utility room and garage.

Stylish grey-white granite worktops provide plenty of preparation space, extending into a breakfasting peninsula, where mealtimes can be enjoyed looking out to the bird feeding station beyond where a host of colourful visitors can be viewed also enjoying brunch.

From the kitchen, continue into the main living room, another bright and bountiful space, decorated in neutral tones and carpeted underfoot. Light flows in through windows to several sides, including a seated-bay window drawing in the peaceful views. Blinds provide perfect privacy, as warmth emanates from the gas stove set within an ornate fireplace.

Steps lead down from the living room into the formal dining room, where banks of windows once again frame glorious views out over the fields, where horses can often be seen.

A home with great flow, from the dining room connect back with the entrance hall, turning left into an accessible ground floor bedroom. Furnished with handmade wardrobes, there is ample storage, and a spacious ensuite with shower cubicle, wash basin, WC and bidet. Open the French doors to the balcony and let the fresh Lakeland air flow in on a summer's day.

With plenty of room to entertain, turn left and down the step to arrive at a second ground floor bedroom, furnished with a wall of fitted wardrobes. Currently serving as a study, this flexibly styled home is adaptable to individual needs, offering up additional bedrooms and work-from-home office space as required. Peaceful and quiet, take inspiration from the rural views out of the window.

Next door, a third double bedroom again features built-in storage, carpeted underfoot and with views out over hedgerows and trees. Both bedrooms on this level are served by a bathroom containing bath with overhead shower, wash basin, bidet and WC. Nestled on its own 'sub-level', consider the potential to turn the study, second bedroom and bathroom into a master suite?

A home brimming with potential, boarded loft space is accessible from both ends of Brackenlea House.

Returning to the entrance hall, take the stairs up to the first floor, turning right into the master suite, where exposed A-frame timbers in the ceiling are recreated in the shape of the immense window looking out over the fields to the front. Step out onto the tiled balcony, wrapped in iron balustrades, and let the serenity of this unique setting sooth your senses. Ample storage is available in the walk-in wardrobe.

Freshen up in the ensuite, featuring a centrally filling bathtub, wash basin, separate shower cubicle, bidet and WC.

Sneak a peek at the second bedroom on this level, carpeted and replete with fitted storage extending along one wall and up and over the double bed. Wake up to birdsong and the peaceful garden views. This bedroom is also served by its own shower room ensuite.

Returning down the main stairs arrive at the lower ground floor level, where a utility room with ample storage connects to the spacious garage where there is plumbing for washer and dryer.

Brackenlea's crowning glory is unequivocally its manicured and landscaped gardens. Shale pathways meander through the borders to the front, maintained on a weekly basis by a gardener. Lakeland slate walls add tiers to the lawns, with large patio areas to the rear, edged by golden gravel, providing pockets of sunshine and shade in which to recline and relax.

A haven for bird life, the sound of birdsong is a constant serenade in this spacious and perfectly private garden, set to a backdrop of woodland. Watch the birds on the feeders outside the kitchen window, a joy to behold.

A large shed and greenhouse encourage pottering and potting, with established vegetable patches in addition to the many lawns and planted borders. Railings at the back make the garden to the rear secure for children and dogs.

Soak up the sights, scents and sounds of the garden from the large wooden swing admire the pergola and enjoy walks around the boundary of this prolific garden.
