In springtime, daffodils line the lanes in the peaceful and pretty village of Underbarrow, a rural refuge moments' walk from the Black Labrador and only 15 minutes' drive from both Kendal and Bowness.

Pull off the road through the gated entrance and onto the gently sloping, spacious driveway of Crossway. Elevated, yet accessible, views surround Crossway, looking out to Scout Scar from the front and over fields and fells to the rear.

Ample parking is available for five or six cars, with further parking available in the integral garage. Approaching the balcony entrance, admire the landscaped wraparound garden to the front and side.

Step inside, where the open feel of Crossway is instantly palpable in the spacious entrance hall. Warm and welcoming, glazed double doors draw light through from the large sitting room to the right.

Broad windows frame irresistible views out to Scout Scar in this perfectly proportioned room. White walls with a feature wall of moss green evoke the natural hues of the outdoors. Snuggle up in front of the open fire on winter evenings and allow yourself to be absorbed by the ever-changing light on the fellside.

Through the second door on the right from the entrance hall, step through to the spacious kitchen-diner. Step onto the carpet of the dining area, set before a large window overlooking the fields and fells to the rear. Lino replaces carpet in the main kitchen, which flows openly from the dining area. Solid wood units provide plenty of storage for culinary essentials and utensils, with a sociable breakfast bar seating area. With an integrated integrated dishwasher, fridge, oven and hob.

Tucked off the kitchen, make your way through to the conservatory, a relaxing room in which to catch the afternoon sun, overlooking the rear garden, fields and fells.

From the conservatory there is also access to the integral garage where a utility area features fitted storage and plumbing for a washer and dryer. Conveniently, the boiler and pressurised water cylinder are easily accessible, also located in the garage.

Returning to the entrance hall, directly ahead from the front door, refreshment awaits in the contemporary bathroom. Refitted only two years ago, slate grey tiling coats the walls and floor, with a large walk-in shower, freestanding bath, heated towel radiator, storage cupboards, wash basin, WC and underfloor heating.

Coming out of the bathroom, turn right and then left to discover the third bedroom, a light, bright single bedroom with fantastic views out over the front garden and towards Scout Scar. Built-in wardrobes provide plenty of storage. This room could serve as a handy home office for those working from home.

Along the hallway, turn left again to arrive at the master bedroom. Wake up to views of Scout Scar to the front, with further light spilling in through the window to the side, where fellside views are also visible. Lavender shades create a restful feel, with ample built-in storage in the form of wardrobes and a dressing table area.

Across the hall, the spacious guest bedroom awaits. With private views to the side and rear, countryside, fields and fells seem to flow out from this bedroom, light and bright and dressed in soothing shades of lavender and white. Built-in storage features once more.

Returning to the broad and bright entrance hall, note the potential to extend up (subject to planning permission), with ample space for a staircase and a part boarded loft above.

An ideal home for those with mobility needs, wide doorways are wheelchair friendly, with sloped access to the garden.

A lovingly nurtured and landscaped garden, lush lawn is bordered by low limestone walls in places, where thick membrane topped in bark serves as a low maintenance weed suppressant.

A garden for all seasons, spring sees the bulbs and perennials peep through, followed by the impressive blossoms of the magnolia and camelia, heralding the coming of summer. Acers add fiery colour through to late autumn, whilst hostas, heathers, hardy fuchsias and rhododendrons add a contrast of colour throughout the seasons. In the height of summer, tall conifers provide shade, with topiaried bushes adding shape to the garden. Low maintenance slate chippings cover the rear, with a handy shed for gardening equipment.

Secluded but not isolated, in 15 minutes, drive to the centre of Kendal, where there is a Booths supermarket, numerous shops, chemists, grocers, hairdressers and more. In the opposite direction, Bowness and Lake Windermere can be accessed in 15 minutes.

On your doorstep is the renowned Black Labrador pub and restaurant, only two minutes' walk away.

Families are well placed with the delightful Crosthwaite Primary School (home to chickens, lambs and alpacas as well as children) only ten minutes' away. Kendal secondary schools are easily accessed in 15 minutes.

Commute with ease; both J36 of the M6 and Oxenholme Railway Station with its mainline links to London, Manchester, Glasgow and Edinburgh are both only 20 minutes' drive away.

Homely, versatile, relaxing and spacious, Crossway is a home with broad appeal, from downsizers to growing families - there is plenty of room for expansion should you wish.
