Along a quiet lane, with far reaching views and vistas of the lake from the first floor, Crosses Farm is handsome in its typical Lakeland stone farmhouse façade. The largest of a small collection of similarly styled homes, experience Lake District life on the peaceful side of Windermere.

Park up to the rear, where there is plenty of room for two cars. To the front, a pedestrian gate provides access to the imposing stone-built Lakeland farmhouse, dated 1897. Traditional dry stone walls enclose the home and its gardens, professionally landscaped and planted to provide a peaceful space in which to relax and unwind.

Making your way to the front door, step through into the understated elegance of the entrance hall. Traditional red floor tiles extend underfoot, whilst the original Victorian pitch pine staircase adds character ahead, curving up to the first floor.

The warm tones of the flooring and wood make for a welcoming arrival home, with fresh white walls a feature throughout, creating an airy and neutral feel to Crosses Farm.

Note the wide doorways, making your way into the first reception room on the left. Windows along the front corner frame sublime views out over the garden, inviting an abundance of natural light indoors. A cast iron fireplace sits within its white surround, with fitted shelving to the alcoves either side ideal for your book collection. Currently serving as both a yoga room and study, this peaceful room is bright and airy and very versatile.

Returning to the entrance hall continue ahead, sneaking a peek at the ample storage available beneath the staircase, en route to the open-plan kitchen-diner-living room, the heart of the home.

Immediately to the left lies the dining area, nestled within its own distinct zone and bathed in light courtesy of a large window. To the right, wooden floor extends in the seating area, where a log-burning stove emanates warmth, set upon a slate hearth.

Sectioned in the top area of the open-plan space is the country kitchen, where Corian worktops gleam beneath the spotlighting above. Integrated appliances include an undercounter fridge (a large fridge-freezer is housed within the utility room) and gas Range-style cooker. An undermounted sink is set within one corner, beneath Mediterranean orange splashback tiles, whilst windows deliver plenty of daylight through.

A highlight of this kitchen is the substantial larder; a traditional cool room, it is believed that this room once served as a creamery. Large windows introduce daylight, with a high, sloping ceiling overhead.

Also tucked off the kitchen is a handy utility room. Tiled underfoot, it also serves as a useful boot room and everyday entrance when returning from walks in the surrounding countryside, with direct access out to the garden beyond. In here, further cabinetry provides plenty of storage, with plumbing for a washer-dryer.

From the utility room, discover an accessible downstairs shower room, also featuring wash basin and WC, brimming with light courtesy of a large, high window.

Returning to the kitchen, open a door to the sitting room, a sunny cheerful space with zesty tones to the walls. A log-burning stove emanates warmth and welcome from within the recessed fireplace, nestled beneath a large stone lintel, whilst fitted storage sits in the alcoves to either side. A bright and airy room, light streams in through windows to two sides.

From the entrance hall, make your way up the carpeted, pitch pine staircase, turning left to arrive at a light-filled landing, where a large window frames views out over the garden and out to Lake Windermere in the distance. Take a seat and listen to some music or leaf through a book in this restful pocket of peace and privacy. Above, there is access via a drop-down ladder to a fully boarded loft.

A restful night's sleep awaits to the right, where the principal bedroom drinks in the incredible views out over the garden and countryside from a series of large windows. Pause and admire views out over the lake, a spectacular sight no matter what the weather. Carpeted and spacious, there is ample space for furnishings, whilst the original open fireplace is nestled within a corner, adding warmth and ambience alongside the feature pink and white wallpaper.

Returning to the landing, across the way, bedroom two mirrors the scope of the principal bedroom, also featuring an original fireplace and with large windows capturing views over the garden to the lake in the distance. Take a moment to appreciate the peace and privacy.

Returning to the head of the stairs, this time turn right to explore another landing where two further bedrooms and a bathroom await.

Bedroom three, carpeted and dressed in grey and white walls, looks out over the garden, offering views out over the pond. This bedroom also has an original fireplace.

Continue along the landing, pausing to refresh and revive in the family bathroom on the left. Part tiled to the walls, there is a centrally filling bath, heated towel rail, separate shower with rainfall head and handheld attachment and a WC and wash basin. No need for blinds in this private room, simply admire the views up the valley into the hills.

Next, arrive at the fourth bedroom, brimming with built-in storage, and also featuring an original fireplace.

Outside, professionally landscaped gardens serve as an extension of the home's internal charms. To the front an established rose bed provides sensory delight in the summertime, with sculptured gravel walkways flanked in hornbeams. A large flat expanse of lawn is ideal for children's games, with an ornamental pond adding visual interest and serving as a haven for nature. A 200-year-old sycamore tree to the rear is a particularly handsome sight to behold in autumn. In late spring an enormous rhododendron is filled with delicate pink blossoms.

A four-part stable block, including one which is insulated and fitted with power and light, could be used as an office area, having broadband connectivity, which could be further boosted.
