Welcome to Broom Hill, a stunning four-bedroom boutique home, sprung from the foundations of a tumbledown bungalow and now a beacon of architectural excellence in the heart of one of the Lake District's most spectacular valleys.
Pull off the country road and along the driveway, where there is plenty of parking for up to five cars. Planning permission for the original development came replete with plans for a double garage, should this be an accompaniment you desire at a later date.
Enter into a practical boot room, ideal for returning home from your explorations of this quiet and idyllic valley. Ribbed matted flooring is replaced with oak effect Karndean as you emerge into the entrance hallway. Solid oak fire doors feature throughout; push open the one to the right to discover the bright and cosy snug lounge.
Decorated in soothing green-grey, with tall, white skirtings, further light flows in through the French doors, which open out onto the decking area and hot tub. Karndean flooring presides underfoot - a feature throughout the downstairs rooms.
Designed for all-encompassing accessibility on the ground floor (all doorways are wheelchair-accessible widths), to the right of the snug, a fourth self-contained bedroom suite awaits.
Decorated in dove grey, with a contemporary vertical radiator, this versatile double bedroom could also serve as a study or games room. Refresh your senses in the ensuite, decked with underfloor heating, and tiled in textured Lakeland slate.
On route to the open plan 'heart of the home', sneak a peek at the storage beneath the oak staircase.Revealing itself portion by portion, generating a sense of anticipation of what is to come, step through into the open-plan family area...
Sink into the sofa of the lounge, where bay window views frame the beauty of the Winster Valley in all seasons. Turn around to spy the sociable kitchen. Fitted with a range of Neff appliances including induction hob, single fan assisted oven with slide and hide door, combi oven-grill-microwave and warming drawer, dishwasher, full-height fridge and full-height fridge-freezer, where better to whip up dinner for family and friends? A Belfast sink is inset, with swan neck tap and views out through one of many windows.
Crisp quartz worktops coat the breakfast bar providing a stark contrast to the dark grey units. Open-plan and flowing, each section offers a degree of separation whilst retaining an unbroken flow, allowing for privacy and the freedom to circulate in equal measure. Peep through into the utility room, where there is a Bosch washer and condensing dryer alongside a second sink and further storage cupboards.
Grey designer vertical radiators imbue the room with warmth, continuing through to the garden dining-room-lounge. Within the vaulted ceiling, a bespoke lighting system of exposed bulbs is suspended, creating a contemporary feel, while walls of windows up to the skyline flood this room with natural daylight.
Admire the shape of the enormous log-burning stove, which fits precisely on the wide hearth, set before the original exposed Lakeland stone wall. Views of the Langdales rise up before the transparency of the glazed corner, which slides open to fuse the outdoors with inside. Wherever you look, your eyes are rewarded with a view.
Returning to the entrance hall, take the oak and clean-line glass balustrade staircase, up to the first floor. Above the plush grey carpet of the landing spy access to the loft above, before opening the door ahead, into the third double bedroom.
Turning left, discover an equally ample second bedroom, distinguished by its far-reaching views over the Winster valley courtesy of a large picture window and French doors, opening to a Juliet balcony. All the bedrooms at Broom Hill are airy, light and roomy, with space for wardrobes and drawers. Ideal for a restful night's sleep.
Settle down to a perfect night of peace and sweet dreams in the master bedroom. Voluminous yet cosy, this master suite speaks to our contradictory desires for comfort and freedom. Decorated in the palette of the Lake District, slate tones embellish the walls, a sensory reminder of the setting surrounding Broom Hill. Soak up the views from the Juliet balcony, drawing light through into the sizeable bedroom which also features a large dressing room with fitted wardrobes. Sink into a deep bubble bath in the capacious ensuite, where a freestanding Villeroy & Boch tub, walk-in shower, wash basin and separate WC are on hand.
Returning to the garden room, step out onto the decking and let the soothing jets of the swim spa and hot tub revive your senses. With a 3800 litre capacity and fitted with resistance bands for aqua therapy, this aqua training vessel is so much more than a hot tub. Note how the jets create adequate lift to provide a current to swim against. A top of the range UV filtration system is housed in the stone outbuilding adjacent, meaning less maintenance and perfect water every time.
Sunbathe on the Indian stone terrace, which wraps around the rockery and seating area. Listen to the peaceful soundtrack of birdsong. Relax in the seclusion and tranquility, reassured by Broom Hill's full CCTV and monitored alarm system, accessible by phone app even when you're away from home.
