Only 20 minutes from Junction 36 of the M6, leave the arterial A roads behind in favour of the country lanes before arriving at the private, gated entrance to Carrfoot Lodge, where the low rumble of a cattle grid heralds your arrival home.

Ample parking is available for six or seven cars in addition to a large double garage. Established gardens spread around the home, providing a natural buffer of privacy.

Built in around 1847, Carrfoot Lodge, formerly served as accommodation for managers of the original estate, is now would tremendously spacious home.

Make your way through into the broad entrance hall, where wooden flooring extends underfoot. Above, an ornate chandelier showers light down. Dressed in bold colours, crisp white to the deep skirtings, cornices and architraves provides a fresh contrast. Instantly, the enormous proportions of this home are made evident. Ahead, a wide staircase leads up to reveal a window on the turn.

Turning left, discover the enormous living room, where light enters through an array of windows, including large, arched, stone mullion bay windows, drawing light in whilst framing views out over the gardens.

Set within a grand surround, the open fire crackles cheerfully, emanating warmth and welcome throughout the substantially sized room.

Returning to the entrance hall, note the depth of the walls as you pass through a doorway opposite the living room to enter the inner hall.

Freshen up in the downstairs WC with wash basin and toilet, before continuing right into the reading room. A stone surround encompasses an open fire set upon a slate hearth, whilst large sash windows overlook the lush lawns to the front. Carpeted underfoot, heritage tones to the wallpaper add a formal albeit friendly feel in this spacious yet snug room.

Turning right out of this room, continue on into the light, bright and airy open plan kitchen-diner. Wooden flooring extends underfoot, whilst homely warmth fills the room from the white Aga. Pearlescent splashback tiles protect the walls whilst pale blue cabinetry houses plenty of storage for all your culinary utensils and essentials. A granite worktop surrounds the sink, whilst the walk-in pantry with cold slab is ideal for keeping all your larder essentials cool.

Dine at the table, soaking up sublime views over the rolling countryside and distant Howgills through the stone mullion window. There is also direct access outdoors from the kitchen.

Turning right from the kitchen, discover the decadent dining room, where striped wallpaper accentuates the high ceiling. Glass fronted cabinets are ideal for storing glasses, whilst there is ample space for a large dining table beneath the glow of the chandelier. Light enters through a large, stone mullion, bay window, framing views out towards the Howgills. Throw another log on the fire after dinner and swap stories with friends in this classic formal feasting room.

Follow the easy flow from the inner hallway back to the main entrance hall spying the plentiful storage space to the rear of the stairs, perfect for prams and children's toys.

Take the wide, wooden staircase with its elegantly turned spindles up, admiring the view from the window on the turn before arriving at the first-floor landing, where arches span out ahead and to the left.

Turning right, discover a bountiful bedroom with impressive views out over the garden to the countryside beyond through windows to two sides. Built-in cupboard storage is available with ample space for a king-size bed and other furnishings.

Coming out of this bedroom, turn right, and right again to arrive at a second spacious bedroom, where built-in cupboards provide storage to one wall. Carpeted in cream, there is so much space for a king-size bed, wardrobes and drawers, as light flows freely through windows to two sides.

Returning to the landing, next door to this second bedroom is the first of two bathrooms on this level. Tiling covers the wall behind the bath, containing overhead shower, with a wash basin and WC also to hand. Spacious, with a high ceiling, views extend out over the countryside.

Back on the landing, from the head of the stairs this time turn left and pass beneath another archway into an inner landing. On the right, refresh and revive in the second of the two large bathrooms. Tiled underfoot, this bathroom features a large, centrally filling bath with handheld showerhead attachment, wash basin, bidet and WC, with a large linen cupboard available for storage.

Continue right from this bathroom, where an inner landing leads to the main bedroom. Bright and bountiful, a window extends from floor to ceiling framing verdant views out over the gardens.

Open the secret door to arrive at the top of a set of stairs, leading down to an incredible ensuite nestled within the eaves of the house and featuring a large window from the stairs framing views out over the Howgills and Pennines. In addition to a shower cubicle, there is a WC, wash basin and heated towel rail. Utterly unique in its design, this ensuite exemplifies the contemporary comforts which serve to balance the heritage feel of the home.

From the main bedroom, return along the inner landing to arrive at another large bedroom, currently serving as a twin with a wide window delivering daylight through whilst capturing picturesque views out over the countryside.

Turning right return to the main landing, arriving next at the spacious study, a pretty room with attractive fanlight above the door. Built-in cupboards offer ample storage for your paperwork, whilst B4RN for You fibreoptic broadband ensures connectivity to those working from home. The home is also served by a monitored alarm system and CCTV.

Finally, arrive at the fifth bedroom, where pink carpet extends underfoot. A neat bay window frames pretty views out to leafy trees and the countryside beyond. Versatile and spacious, each bedroom offers its own unique outlook on the garden and grounds.

Outside, to the front, lawns permeated with magnolias and blossom trees offer so much space for children to play, unfurling out to rolling countryside. Discover the hidden wildlife pond, brimming with frogs in the springtime. There is even a small woodland to explore. Perfectly private, the extensive gardens and patios are not at all overlooked, extending to just under two acres.

Soaking up the sunshine throughout the day, this is a garden that offers interest throughout the seasons, planted with a range of flowers and trees some of which are 200 years old.

A haven for wildlife, listen out for the nightly hooting of owls, and gentle bleating of sheep in the surrounding fields. Keep your eyes peeled for the tracks of furtive deer as they roam the fields close by.
