One of the quietest valleys in the Lake District National Park, Low Wood Barn is idyllically positioned with remarkable views up the valley and across to the fells.

Unseen from the road, life in this peaceful hamlet is private and quiet, with walks on the doorstep, down to the river. Pull up along the slate chipping driveway, where there is car parking to the front.

Ahead, the traditional old barn with its deep-set windows invites you in. Make your way to the welcome of the porch entrance, where a modern, teal-toned front door opens into the entrance hall. Glass panels above and aside of the door deliver through an influx of light, as warmth emanates from underfloor heating beneath the slate tiles.

To the right, the solid wood and glass staircase leads both up and downstairs in this banked barn, whilst stained glass - a feature throughout - reveals the colourful personality of this home in the door ahead.

Underfloor heating runs throughout most of the home for contemporary comfort, whilst oak doors combine a sense of traditional character; an eclectic motif repeated throughout the home introducing warmth and personality.

Freshen up in the cloakroom with WC and wash basin on the left before opening the double doors ahead into the large, open plan lounge, with a spacious gallery landing above.

Double doors open up to a Juliet balcony looking down over the garden and across the valley, framing stunning views. Exposed timbers adorn the walls and impossibly high ceilings, harnessing the warmth and traditionality of a true Lakeland barn.

Stairs lead up to a mezzanine level study, the perfect place to work from home, served by fibre broadband operating at a speed of 15 M/B P/S. Ample storage is available within the eaves. From a technological perspective, Low Wood Barn is served by an interlinked fire alarm system on all three levels of the barn, also a whole house ventilation system.

Returning down to the lounge, follow the open flow to the side, where a large wooden dining table, ties the living area with the kitchen beyond for a sociable experience. Windows all around provide a constant connection with the inimitable beauty and peace of the Duddon Valley.

A central wooden topped islands divides the dining area from the kitchen which has black granite worktops and vintage French style splashback tiles. With hidden lighting in the cabinets. A Moroccan light over the island creates a cosy atmosphere for dining.

Returning to the entrance hall, take the solid wood staircase, embellished by feature wrought ironwork and glass balustrades to amplify light, down to the lower ground level. Emerging on a broad landing, sense the open and airy feel of the barn. Access is available out from this level via an attractive stained-glass door to the garden, as wood effect tiles extend underfoot.

Flooring is a highlight of this home, offering a distinct and unique feel to each room. Tiled in large slate with a mosaic edge, the first of three inviting bedrooms on this level features a deep window looking out over the garden.

Directly opposite, freshen up in the shower room, part tiled to the walls and underfoot, with a designer heated towel rail - one of three unique designs at Low Wood Barn. Refresh beneath the large shower. This room also contains a wash basin and WC.

With its own distinctive tiling underfoot, step thorough to a second spacious bedroom, with a deep window looking out to the Duddon Valley.

A little further along, arrive at a third double bedroom, light and airy with a large window overlooking the garden. A quirky spice cupboard to one wall conceals the consumer unit. Discover a second bathroom on this level, luxurious in its design and décor, featuring a bath, designer heated towel rail, wash basin and WC.

Returning to the staircase, ascend to the uppermost level where a spacious bedroom with vaulted ceiling is brimming with light. Tiled underfoot, this bedroom overlooks the garden and has exposed beams in the wall and ceiling. A walk-in wardrobe within the eaves offers plenty of storage space, whilst the ensuite is accessed through sliding glass doors and contains a bath, separate shower cubicle, wash basin, WC and designer heated towel rail.

Outside, the garden, completed in 2015, offers different areas in which to sit, relax and unwind. Surrounded by mountain and valley views, the planting is now beginning to mature, with a selection of cherry trees, acers and attractive borders. Trellis divides the lawn and drive from a more secluded sun trap. To one corner, a peaceful pergola and firepit are ideal for entertaining, with patios and pathways comprised of original flags and barn cobbles.

Dine alfresco at the patios to the front and side, following the sun as it moves around. Two outbuildings with electricity provide plentiful storage for mowers, bikes and gardening equipment.
