Originally a school, dating back to 1905, but now lovingly converted and restored with impeccable attention to detail and design to create a unique and beautiful four-bedroom family home with separate annexe.

Wend your way up to the end of the peaceful country lane, where you will come across ample parking on the gravel between the two dwellings.
To the front of the main home discover the original bricks from the old school house that now adorn the external façade of the home and open porch.

Feel instantly at home where the neutral décor blends with the natural wood tones in deep walnut veneer doors and Karndean herringbone flooring that flows sympathetically underfoot creating effortless cleaning.

From the entrance is a generous double bedroom where large aspect windows let the natural light flood and a spiral staircase takes you to a mezzanine level ideal for a reading nook or office. Soft pale pink tiles in the contemporary en-suite walk-in shower room let the Cos sink to stand out with its deep black legs - elegant and calming to refresh in.

Retrace your steps and enter the living room before making you way across it to find a most beautiful master suite that takes advantage of the incredible vaulted floor to ceiling views to the rear of the home. Imagine waking up to the vibrant greens of the fells, a lovely start to the day. Once awake, refresh in the opulent en-suite and dress in the impressive walk-in wardrobe before starting your day. WC, walk-in shower and matt cristalplant double sinks and a freestanding bathtub that takes pride of place in front of the windows, promising rest and relaxation in the en-suite.

Back into the vast open-plan living space with incredible high larch clad beamed ceiling and picture-perfect sash windows, allowing for light and nature to engulf the space and capture the far-reaching views of the Lake District National Park.

The living room is set around an impressive Cumbrian Stone fire surround and hearth complete with internal fire earth chevron tiles around the open fire, a beautiful spot to relax in front of after a busy working week. It flows seamlessly into the dining area with ample space for ten people around the huge dining table.

The kitchen, found through a vast open doorway and bathed in light from windows and French doors that lead out onto a small patio, a perfect place to sit for a morning cuppa. The central island houses plenty of storage for pots and pans as well as the kitchen sink and allows for guests to gather round chatting to the hosts. The main feature that means you can cook up a storm is the Bertazzoni Italian range cooker with pot filler - stylish and functional for big family gatherings and celebrations.

A chefs dream that is further served by more cabinetry, a built-in oven alongside space for a double fridge freezer, washer and dryer, in the useful utility room, found adjacent.

From the kitchen find a most useful storage spot under the stairs, currently fitted with a kitchenette but ideal for a donning and doffing boots and coats due to the access to the garden. Take the door into the snug, where dual aspect windows fill the room with light making it fit for all times of day. Take morning coffee beside the large bay window of snuggle down in the evening for family movie nights in front of the fire.
Ascend the staircase across the hallway, to an open landing that takes you round to two large double bedrooms with ample room for a double bed as well as freestanding furniture along with a family bathroom. Discover neutrally decorated tranquil spaces, with peaked ceilings and beautiful views of the fells beyond, that are sure to reward you with a peaceful night's slumber and leave you fully rejuvenated.

Adjacent is a large bathroom, complete with walk-in shower, double vanity, WC, heated towel rail and taking centre stage an enamel leather rolltop bathtub set on top of huge ornate tiles. Why not let the children have this wing of the home - perfect for keeping toys and games away from the main thoroughfare.

The detached annexe has been finished to the same high standard of luxury as the main home. This versatile and generous space could act as an extension to the day to day living or perhaps as an office, allowing for work and home life to remain separate. It would also suit multigenerational family life creating a home for relatives.

Spend evenings, glass of wine in hand, on the front porch admiring the views in complete tranquility. Make your way through the French doors and into the large open-plan living space that provides distinct zones for eating, cooking and relaxing set beneath the high vaulted, beamed ceiling. Tastefully finished with Karndean parquet flooring throughout living and sleeping quarters, creating a low maintenance and cohesive space.

The sophisticated deep navy L-shaped kitchen, that takes up one corner of the room, is complete with built-in dishwasher, fridge, oven and hob alongside plenty of storage for cooking essentials.

A sliding barn door to the bedroom is a clever space saver and in addition allows the light to flood from the back French doors that take you out to a private patio retreat. The bright and spacious double bedroom benefits from an elegant walk-in shower en-suite with WC and vanity unit. Note the Nest heating system making for convenient modern living.

Garden and Grounds

As the home is perfectly set at the end of a quiet country lane you will find that the garden and 2 acres, to the northwest comprising lush green field and fellside alongside a number of patios, is a secluded and serene haven for you to put your stamp on.

The fields, currently utilised by a local farmer for grazing sheep, could become your own small holding or you could continue this useful agreement leaving you to don your gardening gloves and tend to the rest of the acreage.

Each dwelling gives opportunities for private alfresco dining ideal for entertaining and to the front discover serene open porches that with remarkable aspects over the nearby fells as far as High Street.

The rest of the garden is somewhat of a project, that is currently very low maintenance but gives you plenty of possibilities to don your gardening gloves and get digging. Although the land is filled with birds and rabbits, perhaps you could frame a more formal garden that would encourage even more wildlife in the form or bees, butterflies and dragonflies to visit.

Hope Springs House is unique and rural charm offers opulent family living with everything you need close at hand. What more do you want?
