Retreat to one of the oldest houses in Brigsteer where tranquility awaits in 1.3 acres of garden and woodland. Peacefully nestled in the centre of the village, Nathans, a 17th Century, semi-detached Westmorland longhouse is steeped in history and character, respectfully blended to create a contemporary 4-bedroom family home.

Nathans countryside warmth is clear from the moment you pull onto the gravel driveway. Trees reach high and mature hedgerows decorate the drive as the country garden wraps around the soft grey limestone exterior.

The current owners have extended and transformed the home, revealing its natural beauty, whilst unique features and finishes throughout give nods to its beginnings.

Make your way to the front door and step onto the black limestone floor of this welcoming space. Farmhouse style wooden doors hide a storeroom and separate WC.
Hang your coats up and kick off your boots in this spacious utility before entering the heart of the house through the frosted glazed door.

Stone floors continue into the light and spacious open-plan dining-kitchen revealing oak cabinetry, glistening speckled granite worksurfaces, a range cooker and a central island ready for seating, greeting and preparing.

Reclaimed accent beams sympathetically harmonize the country style kitchen extension with the original character of the home. Wooden trifold doors open up onto the tranquil garden ready for alfresco dining and summer BBQs.

Beyond the large dining table, farmhouse doors lead into the snug.
The deep red accent wall, plush carpet underfoot, and paned sash windows add to the farmhouse comfort of this homely snug. Brew some hot cocoa, pop on your favourite movie and settle down with the children on those restful wintry nights.

Just off the snug is the most beautiful traditional lounge where peeks of exposed stonework garnish the windows with tranquil views overlooking the garden and wooden beams extend overhead. Rest for a while on the window seats to catch a glimpse of the wildlife. The chimney breast, with heavy stone hearth, houses the wood burner and is flanked by local limestone with an original inset cupboard.

Open the door to the small sun room and let the warmth in. A perfect reading nook for you to retire to with pretty pots of flowers and huge picture windows that reveal just a piece of the incredible country garden laid out before you. The beauty of Nathans is its ability to bring the outside in at every opportunity not just through the apertures but also its characterful features.

Pull yourself away from the garden views and make your way through the farmhouse door and up the quirky staircase to the spacious first floor.

Ascend the stairs passing the old farmhouse windows set deep into the walls, topped with original beams, look down to note glimpses of exposed wood.

For a 17th Century home, you will be surprised that storage is abundant. At the top of the stairs discover a generous room, currently used for storage but could be easily converted into an ensuite for bedroom one which is adjacent to it.

Original features continue in bedroom one where two low traditional double sash windows let the light in with original wooden joists set into the wall and ceiling. It is neutrally decorated allowing a peaceful slumber.

Moving along the corridor you will find bedroom two, a slightly smaller double room with a hint of the traditional, and serenely finished.

In bedroom three, a large double, presented in warm blue tones, discover generous built-in wardrobe behind farmhouse doors and more stunning views to the garden and woodland.

Neutral carpet flows seamlessly from room to room. The bright and airy corridor is filled with natural light from big windows and more built-in storage set deep into the walls can be found before making your way into the family bathroom.

You would never know that this part of the home is where the old meets the new as it has been meticulously decorated and finished to create a contemporary space in keeping with the rest of the home.

The skylight above lets the light flood in whilst privacy windows feature above built-in storage in the family bathroom that contains a traditional 4-piece bathroom suite. Light sand-coloured tiles marry with the pale blue tones of the wall, reminiscent of a far-off beach. After a busy day let your worries drift away in the free-standing, stone, roll top bath.

Reaching the end of the corridor you come to the Master suite. Oak wooden flooring underfoot leads you to double doors that open up to a Juliet balcony where you can stand and enjoy the magnificent view.

Deep plum walls and a high ceiling add just a touch of luxury to the humble beginnings of the home and make the master bedroom a haven to relax in. Built-in wardrobes hide everything away and the door to the right opens into the ensuite shower room. This tranquil spacious room, to the back of the home, is filled with natural light from the skylight and more storage has cleverly been concealed in the eaves.

Garden and Grounds

An impressive and idyllic 1.3 acres of woodland gardens gives plenty of opportunity with a variety of places to explore, entertain and grow. The trickle of the waterfall, the distant views of Whitbarrow, Scout Scar and the Lyth Valley before you, and resident wildlife make this countryside garden a truly magical place. The Lyth Valley is famous for damsons which you can harvest from your own trees.

The gravel drive leads you around to the front of the house where you will find a variety of borders filled with buddleia, ferns, crocosmia, gladioli, wild flowers, foxgloves dancing in the sunlight and clematis climbing the walls. Benches and seats are dotted about ready for children to have picnics or for a quiet morning coffee in the sun.

The trifold doors that allow the outside in are painted in a light teal and garnished with the pink, blue and white hues of the mature hydrangea. Bird feeders hang from the walls for the countless birds that call the garden home.

To the side of the home step onto a large patio, with low walls to the back and mature shrubs to the front. This more formal area lends itself to the grown-ups, where you can relax with a glass of red and watch the children explore and build dens in the trees.

Nathans serenity and calm is clear from the start but the true extent of this beautiful space is kept a secret as you stand at the house. Numerous paths lead through mature acers, ferns, shrubs, evergreens and giant astilbe and then suddenly open up onto patches of lawn set beneath the trees. In the summer months put up the tents, build a campfire and camp out beside Nathans Beck that runs through the garden.

Pheasants, wood pigeons and owls have made the woodland their home, whilst bees and butterflies flutter around the fragrant flowers. The mature woodland is not only a haven for wildlife but has also been the only source of firewood for the past 17 years and can continue to be so for years to come.
