Only three miles from the historic market town of Kirkby Lonsdale, Lupton Mill offers easy access to the many shops, supermarkets, bars and bistros whilst offering a serene countryside sanctuary in which to retreat and relax.

Grade II listed, Lupton Mill is set over three levels, and retains much of its original charm and character whilst also providing you with all the contemporary comforts desirable for modern family life.

Serving as a mill until 1968, full planning permission was granted in 1984, and having undergone a total renovation between 2015-18; including rewiring and replumbing, installation of oil-fired underfloor heating throughout, intelligent lighting, sound system and home security all controlled by Control4 Smart Home operating system.
Further upgrades have been made by the current owners, with the installation of a new kitchen, extensive garden work and the addition of a mezzanine level in the double garage.

Pull along the cobbled driveway, where there is ample space for five cars, alongside a double garage. Additional parking is available on the driveway beside the kitchen garden where there is space for a further five cars.

The high-quality transformation of this home is instantly apparent upon arrival, stepping into the double height entrance hall where solid wood flooring with a limewashed finish instils a sense of open airiness. Underfloor heating runs throughout the entire home, for a smooth, clean line finish uninterrupted by radiators. Managed by Control4 unified Smart systems, each room's temperature is individually controllable by iPad, room to room.

Light flourishes down from an ornate compass-style chandelier overhead, whilst views and light also enter from the glass balcony overlooking the lounge ahead.

For now, make your way downstairs into the large lobby, where natural stone in a mellow honeyed shade helps continue the sense of light and openness.

Hunker down in the cinema room, where exposed stone and beams combine with cleverly designed walls, which open to the left wall to reveal ample storage. Set the lighting to the ambience of your choosing (a feature found throughout the home) and munch on popcorn whilst watching the latest box office hit.

Turning left out of this room, emerge into the dining room where exposed beams accompany the original workings of the mill to create a characterful dining experience for family and friends. The only room not to be smoothly plastered, this dining room transcends the centuries, creating an intimate dining vibe.

Take a couple of steps up to arrive at the kitchen. Drenched in light, glass to the ceiling and walls creates a constant connection with the outdoors, framing views out over the garden and millpond, home to a host of wildlife.

Fitted four years ago, the stunning Tom Howley hardwood kitchen in neutral tones with silver handles is well equipped with a range of appliances including a double sink with Quooker instant boiling tap, two dishwashers, a Fisher & Paykel fridge and freezer, wine fridge, two Neff slide and hide ovens, a microwave oven and large induction hob. Hidden away behind doors is a breakfast cupboard, with sockets for kettle, toaster and coffee maker; keeping the clutter hidden away, whilst practical, carefully thought-out touches include the addition of a spice drawer.

Painted in rich navy blue, the central island is such a sociable space, with elegant pendant lighting above, ample storage within and breakfast bar seating for two to the far end. Sliding doors open to provide instant access out onto the terrace, ideal for alfresco dining and admiring views out over the pond, garden and woodland beyond with its picturesque Cumbrian stone bridge.

Returning through the dining room, bear right and pass the mill cogs set within their oak frame to arrive at the lounge, where light floods in through the ample glazing, and a large bookcase is a feature to the rear wall. Warmth emanates from the efficient and contemporary Jotul contemporary log burner.
Across the other side of the dining room, on the right discover the home office. Furnished with fitted bookcases, cupboards and a lockable metal gun cupboard, work from home in peace and privacy. CCTV - monitorable by the Control4 app allows you the security of keeping an eye on your home even whilst you are away.

Tucked away to the rear, step through to the intimate bar, where automatic LED, undershelf strip lighting casts illumination on up to 400 bottles of wine in the bespoke rack, with spirits cabinet opposite; perfectly accessible from the dining room and painted in the same Tom Howley paint as the kitchen central island.

Completing the entertaining level of the home, ahead, a large cloakroom, tiled in natural stone underfoot and furnished with feature marble wash basin and WC is automatically illuminated upon entry.

A home brimming with technological touches from automatic lighting to the Control4 iPad system and CCTV, a plant room accommodates all the wiring and heating systems (also handy for airing laundry).

Returning to the stairs, ascend another two sets of glass and oak stairs to reach the upper landing, where the breath-taking master bedroom can be found on the left. Above, the high ceiling is embellished with a tapestry of beams, with an incredible chandelier filling the room with light. A true sanctuary, French doors open to a private terrace with views out over the garden, set above the original waterwheel, an impressive feature. To the other side of the master bedroom, French doors frame views over the millpond and to the woodland beyond.

Marble tiles coat the walls and floor of the ensuite, with double height ceiling embellished in original mill machinery, adding an industrial edge to the luxurious comfort. Enjoy a relaxing soak in the freestanding aluminium boat bath, with its nickel-coloured finish, as you gaze out over the millpond and its array of visiting kingfishers and herons.

Twin wash basins are set upon a large, curved vanity unit, with separate shower, heated towel radiator and AXOR fittings.

Returning to the landing, across the way arrive at the second double bedroom, where the bed is perfectly positioned to take in the views over the garden and millpond.

A spiral staircase leads up to a mezzanine level landing, ideal for children. Refreshment awaits in the ensuite, eclectically dressed in Andy Warhol inspired, colourful tiles with slate floor underfoot. A large walk-in shower accompanies a vanity unit wash basin, WC and heated towel radiator.

Returning to the stairs, descend to the middle level, turning left past the millstones to arrive at bedroom four. Spacious and light, windows to two sides capture views out over the garden and woodland. Exposed beams to the ceiling and above the windows blend olde worlde charm with the fresh brightness of the smooth white plaster.

Turning right from this bedroom, refresh in the family bathroom, tiled in slate grey and furnished with a large, walk-in shower, twin wash basins with storage beneath, heated towel radiator and a WC.

Next door, bedroom three offers spacious relaxation, with ample room for a double bed and a sofa or wardrobe. Windows to two sides draw in the light, with exposed beams above.

Heading back alongside the staircase, to the left, spy the characterful, preserved features of the mill; three mill stones each with its own grade for grinding to different standards: a Derbyshire millstone, one from nearby Nether Kellet and the third, with its distinctive metal ring, imported from France. Following the hallway along, a door to the right leads through to the inviting fifth bedroom.

Pause by the glass balcony on the left as you re-emerge into the entrance hall and take a moment to admire the view down over the lounge and through the bifolds beyond to the garden. A home designed for entertaining; rooms and hallways flow naturally - offering pockets of privacy amidst open, sociable spaces.

Ahead of you, refreshment awaits in the bathroom. Throughout Lupton Mill, there are automatic lighting features in the bathrooms. Porcelain tiles in a creamy-buff shade add a spa-style ambience, with a large, walk-in shower, vanity unit wash basin, WC and heated towel radiator. Iconic, designer AXOR taps feature throughout the bathrooms adding a splash of luxury.

On leaving the bathroom, turn left, the practical utility room sits apart from the main entertaining spaces, keeping the noise from the freestanding washer and dryer to a minimum. Alongside a Belfast sink there is plenty of space for storing coats and shoes in the shelving and hanging space, with cabinets for cleaning products also at hand.

Outside, explore your own private oasis at Lupton Mill. Relax and unwind on the three different patio areas, watching the kingfisher, ducks and heron dipping for fish in the millpond. Green, verdant and lush, there is plenty of space for young ones to play on the landscaped lawns, whilst the beck is a dam-builder's adventure playground.

Explore the woodland that surrounds Lupton Mill to one side, carpeted in a purple haze of bluebells in the springtime.

Manicured borders, newly planted trees and hedging introduced by the current owners ensure the outdoor space at Lupton Mill is as enchanting as the indoors.

At the far side of the garden, cross the single-track road to discover a newly established kitchen garden, enclosed in a newly built dry-stone wall. Cleared of brambles and raised by the current owners, around ten raised beds provide a steady supply of fruit, vegetables, herbs and cut flowers. The orchard, meanwhile, produces plenty of fruit. Enjoy a tea break in the beautiful shepherd's hut, half of which is currently devoted to tool storage, whilst the other side features a log-burning stove, with space for a sofa.

Replanted borders frame the reroofed boathouse, served by electricity, Wifi and water and ideal for storing a boat, paddleboards and other outdoor equipment. Consider the potential to transform this boat house into a luxurious annex for guests, studio or even a home office.
