Perfectly poised between the Cumbrian market town of Kendal and the Yorkshire Dales market town of Sedbergh (England's 'book town'), Gill Side Barn, in Grayrigg, enjoys the best of both worlds.

A tranquil hamlet, home to only four dwellings and lying between the villages of Grayrigg and Lambrigg, Gill Side Barn is set in a quiet and peaceful pocket of countryside calm in South Lakeland.

Idyllically set, and unseen from the lane, pull through the gated entrance where there is plenty of parking for six cars in addition to a single garage. There is also an electric vehicle charging point.

Follow the path alongside the lush front lawn to arrive at the glazed entrance to Gill Side Barn, a traditional stone-built barn conversion renovated to the highest standards, surrounded by fields and countryside.

Transition from the Lakeland air into the warmth of the entrance hall, where the exposed stone is evocative of the home's rustic, rural setting. Inviting and enticing, beams run throughout the home.

Hang your coat on the hooks or stash your outerwear away in the handy storage cupboard on the right. Through the next oak door on the right, freshen up in the immaculately finished cloakroom with wash basin and WC.

Solid oak floor extends in the kitchen to the left, where granite worktops contrast with the cream cabinetry for a traditional farmhouse feel. With plenty of space for a breakfast table, appliances include a dishwasher and microwave, Rangemaster oven and a large LG American style fridge freezer with plumbing for a washer-dryer. Savour the verdant vistas over the hillside.

Across the entrance hall a little further along is the dining room. Through tall arched windows feast your eyes on the far reaching views over hillsides where cattle and sheep roam. Carpeted and comfortable, warm and welcoming, this room is a sociable hub.

Relax and unwind in the lavishly sized lounge, where windows frame elevated views out over the countryside and a log-burning stove set on a robust stone hearth ensures an ambient warmth in the winter months. Richly toned beams enhance the rural feel of this home, private and not overlooked.

Descend the quality-built, solid wood staircase to the lower level, where the flexible nature of Gill Side Barn is ably demonstrated. Directly ahead, a hallway leads to a stained-glass door, opening to the garden beyond. Immediately to your left, discover a large room currently used as a study. With its own external access and kitchenette, keep business and home life separate when working from home. For those with extended families or dependent relatives, this lower level could serve as separate living quarters.

Next door, a large bedroom is ideal for guests, with high ceiling, wood skirtings, exposed beams and remarkable, private views out over the garden and countryside.

A second, spacious king-size bedroom awaits on this lower level, enjoying the same sublime country views as the first and containing ample space for wardrobes and chests of drawers.

Refresh and revive in the shower room, with shower, wash basin and WC, tiled underfoot and furnished with Jacuzzi bathware.

Returning upstairs, continue to the first-floor landing, turning left into bedroom five, an inviting double, permeated by light courtesy of two large Velux windows above. Note the oak ledges to the skylights, emulated in the high skirtings; another example of the attention to detail and high quality found throughout.

Next door on the left, the main bedroom swims in light, flowing in from large Velux windows in the high ceiling, capturing living watercolours of the rolling fields all around. Peace and privacy are assured at Gill Side Barn. Refresh your senses in the Jacuzzi ensuite, with shower, wash basin and WC.

Along the landing, a fourth guest bedroom can comfortably accommodate a king size bed; spacious and serene and with ample space for furniture. Ever-present, countryside views are captured through the Velux windows.

Soak away your cares in the fully tiled four-piece bathroom, where a large, centrally filling bath and separate shower cubicle are available, alongside wash basin and WC.

Experience the idyllic pleasure of countryside living, with gardens to the front and rear of Gill Side Barn. Patio areas lend themselves to summertime barbecues, as the countryside extends in all directions; views ever changing with the seasons.

There is an option to rent or buy three fenced paddocks covering an area of approximately three acres plus a two stable and one tack room wooden stable block for those wishing to keep horses, making Gill Side Barn a desirable equestrian property. More land could be made available to rent or buy on request.

Out and about
The perfect place to bring up children in a rural idyll, yet its wonderful wilderness notwithstanding, Gill Side Barn maintains an easy connection with civilisation.

In touching distance of the surrounding towns and commuter links, access the M6 motorway in a mere six minutes, driving to Manchester in around an hour and 20 minutes, or Glasgow within two hours.

Cherish childhood at Grayrigg C of E's Forest School, where the natural environment is used as much as possible to enhance learning and learn new skills. For secondary education, Queen Katherine School in Kendal is only seven minutes' drive away with independent schooling available nearby in the market town of Sedbergh.
