Travel roughly four miles outside of the market town of Kendal, wending your way up to the top of Potter Fell Road, to arrive at the remote former 19th century farming homestead of Howgills View.

Howgills View itself forms the eastern part of the Gillpin Bank Barn conversion.

Dating back to the mid 1800s, there is an enticing sense of remoteness to Howgills View, nestled on the fells and with 360 degrees views - Potter Fell immediately to the north, the magnificent Howgill mountains to the east, views down to Kendall and the river Kent valley to the south and the famous Langdale peaks to the west. Enjoy the sense of seclusion and the opportunity to observe the world, whilst retaining all the handy amenities of nearby Kendal, just a few minutes' drive from your front door.

Outside, the impressive barn retains its characterful stonework exterior, juxtaposed by its easy-flow, open-plan, modern interior. Reroofed, water proofed, with new electrics and central heating and also fitted with new B4RN Wifi and tv cabling throughout, this home is perfectly equipped for modern living.

Howgills View
Park up in one of the three spaces available outside, Howgills View, a spacious, open-flow, four-bedroom home.

Underfoot, high quality manufactured oak flooring extends throughout the entrance hallway and through the entire ground floor, with a cloakroom with wash basin and WC immediately on your right, opposite a utility room, with plumbing for a washer and dryer, and storage conveniently tucked away from the main entertaining spaces.

Ahead, emerge into the open-plan kitchen-dining room, where spotlighting showers down illumination from above. The quality Atlantis Kitchen is fitted with Neff appliances, including a double oven and induction hob, alongside a dishwasher and fridge-freezer. Make your morning coffee with ease, courtesy of the Quooker instant boiling tap.

Opening up off the kitchen is the light-filled living room, where a corner of windows draws the daylight and country views indoors. Relax and unwind in front of these picturesque views or watch a movie (television points feature throughout). French doors provide easy access out onto the private patio - perfect for barbecues and alfresco dining.

Returning to the entrance hall, ascend the elegant oak staircase and make your way up to the first floor.
Note the beautiful shower room on the first floor containing shower, wash basin and WC, before peeping through to bedroom two, a comfortable double bedroom.

Sanctuary awaits to the rear, in the enchanting master suite. Dressed in nude tones and carpeted underfoot, the rolling rural vistas are allowed to speak for themselves.

There is plenty of storage for all your clothes with the deep built in wardrobe. Refresh and unwind in the ensuite bathroom, warmed by underfloor heating and furnished with shower, wash basin and WC.

Returning to the landing, take the stairs up to the second floor, where two more sumptuously sized double bedrooms await, both served by a bathroom containing bath, wash basin and WC, and also warmed by underfloor heating.

Outside, the low maintenance garden features a large, private slate terrace and lawn area. Designed for easy living, the garden is almost supplementary to the playground of woodland and fellsides that are on your doorstep.
