Secluded yet not isolated, Danes Court House once formed part of the Victorian vicarage to nearby St Anthony's Church on Cartmel Fell. Divided around 30 years ago into three handsome homes, Danes Court House sits centrally, a remarkable sight from the road, particularly when approaching from the direction of Grange Over Sands.

Pull along the gravel driveway and sense the history of this majestic home, rising up above the dell and accessed atop a run of stone steps, intersecting sloping green lawns. Elevated from the road, Danes Court House's grandeur is undeniable, it is a home with presence.

Parking is plentiful for three cars to the bottom of the garden, where flat lawn leads to a walled terrace, perfect for catching the early evening sun. Take the stone steps up to the upper terrace and look back over the serene setting of this home, where nothing but birdsong disturbs the total tranquility.

Oversized, partly glazed doors lend further prestige to your arrival home, opening to the formal dining room entrance hall.

Bespoke carpet, specially manufactured for Danes Court House extends underfoot, its crimson and gold notes perfectly in keeping with the character of the home. High ceilings reach up, amplifying the light, whilst the traditional fireplace and hearth provides a wonderful focal point to the room. Windows overlook the upper terrace, providing verdant views over the front garden.

Beneath the stairs, a hatch opens to the cellar, a series of three rooms, housing the 10,000-litre water tank, fed by a borehole. With its own filtration system and UV filter the water is perfectly potable. Two further cellar rooms are dry, with good headroom and offer potential to create extra living space or perhaps a guest annex for holiday let purposes with the addition of an external staircase.

Turning right, step into the sitting room, an impressive room where bespoke carpet continues underfoot. Bountifully sized, light streams in through arched windows to the front, whilst original cornicing and picture rails add character. An original fireplace, trimmed in black, hints at the home's Victorian origins, designed in keeping with the mourning style initiated by Queen Victoria following the death of Albert.

Directly ahead from the front door, step onto the original slate flooring of the kitchen. Colourful splashback tiles protect the walls, harmonising with the dark duck egg blue of the painted, solid oak doors. Original floor to ceiling larder units provide a profusion of storage, whilst appliances include a Range cooker, built-in dishwasher, washing machine, oil-fired boiler and fridge freezer.

Open the back door to step into a sunny courtyard, backing onto a rocky outcrop. A practical space, with sheds and coal bunker, store all your gardening essentials out here.

Returning to the dining room take the stairs up to the landing, noting once more the impressive ceiling height and original arches which lend such character and individuality to Danes Court House.

Soak up the views from the main bathroom, where a clawfoot, rolltop bath is set before large arched windows overlooking the garden and woodland to the front. Soothing shades of blue dress the upper walls, tiled in white below, whilst a separate shower, wash basin, WC and heated towel rail also feature. Amtico marbled flooring extends underfoot, whilst light streams through the high transom glass above the door, through into the landing.

Also nestled to the front of the home is the main bedroom, a room with a regal feel and dressed in golden tones. Feature Versace wallpaper sets a luxurious ambience, its colours picked out in the drapes and upholstery surrounding.

Grandly sized, this spacious room, with its high partly vaulted ceiling can happily accommodate a large armoire and a Queen Anne chair. Arched windows frame impressive views out over the garden and to Cartmel Fell. Open the curtains in the morning and feel the warmth of the sunrise fill the room.

Freshen up in the ensuite, recently refurbished alongside the main bathroom, both furnished in Victorian style; a shower cubicle accompanies a wash basin, WC and mirrored cabinet.

Across the landing, the second bedroom continues the gilded motif of décor, and is privately positioned to the rear, overlooking the rocky outcrop and skyline. Cosy and inviting, an original fireplace sits within a corner, now an ornamental feature alongside the high picture rails. Spacious enough for two single beds or a king size bed, this room is a versatile and comfortable guest bedroom.

Attic space extends above both bedrooms, with the potential for development should you wish to create a third bedroom.

Secluded, tranquil, grand yet homely, make Danes Court House your ultimate Lakeland refuge.
