Perfectly positioned, offering comfortable family living in the heart of the Lake District National Park is the beautifully renovated Corner Cottage.

The 4-bedroom detached home, currently used as a holiday let, was built by renowned, local builders Pattinsons in the 1920's. It's classic exposed Lakeland stone with white roughcast upper elevations makes it a traditional picture-perfect Lake District home with stunning rounded stone chimney stacks. Corner Cottage could be bought as a going concern with all furniture included or be made into a family home.

Pull off the main road of the A591 and onto the large tarmac driveway, with ample parking for 5 cars.

When facing the house, from the drive, find two wrought iron gates that lead to the front and back of the home ensuring options depending on the day. A tarmac path leads through the righthand gate to the back door making it easy when bringing the shopping in or removing muddy boots after a walk in the fells. The path to the left is more formal with the traditional Cumbrian slate underfoot taking you round to the front door.

The covered porchway provides shelter from the Cumbrian weather before entering the home through the glazed front door. Feel instantly welcome as your step into the bright hallway that awaits you, with space to hang up coats and handy understairs cupboard for storage.

Turn to the right to admire the stunning features of the cosy lounge. Dark exposed beams, original picture rails adorned with a continual shelf, deep window showcasing the main lawn and open fire with marble effect surround and characteristic stone hearth. Picture cosy winter evenings relaxing in front of the fire, hot chocolate in hand.

The downstairs of Corner Cottage has a fantastic flow perfect for entertaining and family life in mind, each room leading onto the next in a loop. Follow the natural flow of the home into the adjoining dining room, an ideal space for family gatherings with plenty of space for extended family.

There is access into the conservatory, so when the parties are in full flow open the glazed double doors and have even more room. The conservatory, in turn, also has patio doors that make alfresco dining and gatherings effortless.

The rich wooden style flooring in the dining room continues into the kitchen. Guests can gather around the counter and chat to the hosts whilst they cook up a feast in this contemporary space. Smooth cream cabinetry provides ample storage and house all the mod cons built in including Lamona dishwasher and microwave as well as a separate Belling 7 ring gas hob. Spotlights reflect the light back into the room from the glistening counters and tiles and high windows ensure an airy space.

At effortless stay would be had by guests as from the kitchen, discover a handy boot room that has access to the back garden, as well as a separate downstairs toilet and utility room to house the washer and dryer.

Work your way through the kitchen to find a small snug which would make a lovely tv room, reading room or games room for children.

Move into the hallway and ascend the staircase to the first floor. Corner Cottage has many benefits and one of them is storage. At the top of the stairs is a most useful walk-in, lockable linen cupboard to hide things away in. To the end of the hallway find another lockable shelved cupboard.

Upstairs you will find four generous bedrooms all with en-suite shower rooms as well as a separate room that offers guests a bathtub. The shower rooms are all decorated with contemporary beige tiles matched with white accessories and vanity units, ensuring calming spaces to wash up in after a busy day exploring the Lake District National Park.

Light cascades from the skylight and staircase windows into the long hallway with high ceilings and cream walls keeping it crisp, modern and clean.

The first of the bedrooms, to the left of the stairs, is the smallest of the four but still is ample size for double bed, wardrobe and chest of drawers. Catch glimpses of fell views as you lie in bed.

Adjacent to this is bedroom two, currently a twin room with views out to the driveway and road. The A591 although a busy road can barely be heard through the double-glazed windows so a peaceful night's sleep will most certainly be had.

Opposite this is a generous and tranquil room, with aspects over the front lawn and wooded area down the private lane. It is big enough to house a double bed and double sofa bed along with freestanding furniture - space is not a problem at Corner Cottage.

The final of the bedrooms is to the back of the home through a quaint feature arch in the hallway. This is an incredible space, currently used as a family room, housing two singles and a double bed as well as heaps of furniture. A separate toilet within the large en-suite gives an added touch of luxury.

Serenity can be found in the last room upstairs that simply has an indulgent extra-large bathtub complete with waterfall tap. Relax and let the bubbles overflowing, glass in hand, candles lit and escape the day-to-day grind or regroup after a day on the fells.

Garden and Grounds

The garden offers a range of different areas for relaxing and entertaining and wraps around three sides of the home offering privacy and seclusion. The fourth side is where the driveway lies.
Although the home is very grand, Corner Cottage has that country cottage garden feel with lush green lawns, Lakeland stone walls, hedgerows and mature borders of shrubs, Giant Astilbes, Ferns, wildflowers and foliage.

Come out of the front door and discover the covered porch that makes an ideal space to sit and relax in the evening with views overlooking the lawn. A large lawn with plenty of space a table and chairs and offers the perfect place for the children to play. The blues and pinks of the Hydrangeas add pockets of colour amongst the greens of the privacy hedge that separates the main entrance to the home. Behind this hedge to the driveway side is a small patio where alfresco cooking can take place giving access to both the garden and into the conservatory.

Walk down the blue-grey slate steps of the path where the walkway continues past the front door and takes you to a low black wrought iron gate, giving easy access onto the private road to the side of the home - perfect for a quick dog walk in the morning.

To the right of the path is an additional lawned area, that could be the ideal place to create a bespoke vegetable patch, or children's play area out of the way.

To the rear of the home is another lawned area that has access into the back boot room making it easy to take the washing straight from the utility area and hang it out in the Cumbrian breeze.

Corner Cottage offers spacious family living with heaps of outside space for entertaining and gardening. It is also easy to maintain, so if you are looking for a holiday, Airbnb or a family home then this one is for you.
