Irresistible appeal
Built by a gentleman farmer in 1907, Keldrigg House epitomises the very best facets of Edwardian design with high ceilings, light-filled rooms, and impressive woodwork throughout.

With only a handful of owners in its history, Keldrigg House is a family home, lovingly renovated by its current owners, with an abundance of space inside and out for families. A new porch adds balance to the front, whilst to the rear, the beauty of the Edwardian broad bay windows is best admired from the lush green garden.

Inside, new bathrooms have been installed, while the kitchen area and lobby have been entirely restyled and refitted to provide a fluid flow to the home.

The closer you get to Keldrigg House, the more there is to appreciate. Making your way in from the rear through to the main entrance, light showers down from a large roof lantern above and you will find more than enough fitted storage for coats and boots etc.

Calm and relaxing, the garden room on the right is a beautiful space in which to while away a summer's afternoon, with views and direct access to the sunny patio and garden.

Opening up off the rear entrance hall is the well-furnished and large utility room, where there is plenty of storage space, a pantry, a sink, plumbing for a washing machine and a window overlooking the garden. Next door is a handy cloakroom, with wash basin and WC.

Opposite the garden room, feast your eyes on the open plan kitchen dining room, whose broad bay window captures widescreen panoramas over the lawn and well stocked borders.

Wood-effect Karndean flooring flows out underfoot, continuing through to the contemporary country kitchen beyond.
Iroko wooden worktops sit above cream cabinetry, providing plenty of preparation and storage space. Appliances include a four oven Aga, Neff hob, integrated bin storage, with space for an American-style fridge-freezer and dishwasher.

Light and bright, this practical kitchen also features pantry storage and a breakfast bar peninsula for casual dining.

Off the kitchen, access the formal front entrance, where the porch on the left is coated in traditional Minton tiles.

Ahead, step through to the sitting room, where a handsome fireplace is fitted with a log burning stove. Overhead, the honeycomb pattern ceiling hints at the features so often found in Edwardian properties. The high ceilings edged in attractive cornicing add to the charm of this large, light-filled room, where a large window draws the outdoors in, framing views down to the orchard. A door also opens to the back garden.

Double doors lead through to a peaceful, multi functional space, where a wood-burning stove is nestled within a handsome surround which infuses warmth and character. Overhead, the dainty honeycomb ceiling pattern features once more.

Ideal as a study, lounge or dining room, a beautiful, seated, bow window offers views out over the garden and woodland beyond, the perfect backdrop for formal dinner parties or a study sanctuary.

Next, another light and inviting room awaits. Another broad bay window with a window seat running beneath it offers the perfect place to pause and admire the garden views. An elegant picture rail and coving convey character, whilst a log-burning stove infuses cosy warmth from within its marble surround.

Ascend the original staircase, with its charismatic panelling, to reach the carpeted first-floor landing, turning right to arrive at the shower room with WC on the left. Next door is the bathroom, with a freestanding tub containing shower head attachment, vanity unit wash basin and WC - both replaced over the last 18 months.

At the end of the landing, beside the bathrooms, continue up the carpeted stairs to reach what was once the maid's quarters. Ideal as an additional guest bedroom or perhaps a perfect bedroom hideaway for teenagers with a sitting room or gym area and further carpeted space for storage.

Returning to the landing, continue up the main staircase to the left, arriving at a large, light landing, where the elegant panelling continues.

Step through to the first room on your right; dressed in peaceful shades of forget-me-not blue, light streams in through two large windows to two sides. Carpeted in cream, pause in the window and take in the views out over the large lawn and paddock. A sizeable room with ample space for wardrobes alongside a king-size bed.

Next door, original sanded pine flooring flows out in the main guest bedroom, where a stunning bow window provides leafy views, bringing a mature blossom tree into perfect frame. There is ample space here for a double bed and wardrobes.

Along the landing, bedroom three also has original, sanded, pine floors and idyllic views out over the garden and woodlands. There is scope to use some of the space in this room to create an ensuite for this room or the neighbouring bedroom if desired.

With an original period fireplace in the corner, step through to the fourth bedroom along this landing. Slightly smaller, this bedroom can still easily accommodate a king-size bed, currently furnished with a double bed and a cot, pause in the window seat and enjoy the views over to the Lakes.

Keldrigg Cottage
Originally stables, latterly a garage, just opposite from Keldrigg House is the beautiful stone-built Keldrigg Cottage.

Built by the current owners as accessible living for a dependent relative, enter the kitchen of Keldrigg Cottage, fitted with a range of cabinets in light grey, alongside a breakfast bar and furnished with all the essential appliances.

Opening up to the left is an open plan dining-living area, warmed by a log-burning stove, set on a slate hearth. Windows invite so much light through into this calm, contemporary yet characterful cottage.

Ideal for older relatives or for those with mobility needs, there is an accessible ground floor double bedroom and shower room, with wash basin, WC and heated towel radiator, on this level.
Upstairs, a second bedroom with its own luxurious ensuite awaits, furnished with a large, centrally filling bathtub, set beneath an original porthole window. Ample storage is available in the eaves, whilst the main bedroom is set beneath a vaulted ceiling, with views out to two sides. There is also a handy study area on this first-floor level.

A versatile annex, Keldrigg Cottage is perfect for guests or grown up children, with the potential for Airbnb income.

Office building
Keldrigg House also has its own detached office, served by power and internet, ideal for those working from home or could be used as a home gym, yoga studio, or entertainment room. Working from home could not be easier with a B4RN 1GB superfast broadband connection to both properties.

Double garage
A double garage for use as storage or as a workshop is situated beyond the orchard with a mezzanine floor for storage. Electrically operated garage doors provide security and ease for parking.

Set within around 2.92 acres of land, the abundant gardens surrounding Keldrigg House have been lovingly revitalised by the current owners. There is a lawned area, formerly a tennis court, an orchard, a woodland, a paddock and a vegetable garden . Plenty of garden space to play, explore and enjoy nature.

Children can enjoy an idyllic childhood, building dens in the woodland, enjoying campouts in the paddock, and harvesting apples, damsons and pears from the orchard.

Spend summers playing ball games in the paddock, keeping it closely mown with the introduction of a few sheep, or sow your own wildflower meadow. There are more than enough grounds for children and dogs to run free and play in this fully fenced garden.

Grow your own in the vegetable patch, home to rhubarb, gooseberries, redcurrants and blackcurrants. There is even an area of hardstanding upon which you could erect a greenhouse. Of course, the terrace outside the conservatory and kitchen is perfect for barbecues and summer soirees.

A versatile and all-encompassing family home, perfect for multigenerational living, entertaining and making memories, light-filled living awaits at Keldrigg House.
