Nestled in a secluded position in the village and only a five-minute drive from Kirkby Lonsdale, this wonderful, spacious home offers rural calm whilst also being close to all amenities. Built in 2002, 2 Rectory Gardens is one of three individual homes that won the coveted Lancaster Design Award in 2004. Furnished with all the benefits of a new build, and yet with all the character and charm of an abode that has been around for much longer, this happy family home offers the best of both worlds.

Turning off Church Street, make your way into the private entrance by the side of the well-tended front garden, and pull up next to the double garage. Handsomely built in stone and exuding character, the front porch welcomes you where seats offer shelter and space to ease off walking boots and jackets.
Warm and welcoming, the entrance hallway with rich oak flooring underfoot sets the scene for what to expect as you explore this magnificent home.
Freshen up in the cloakroom just on your right, furnished with washbasin and WC, before continuing along the hallway and taking the next right as you prepare to be captivated.

The raised kitchen-diner exudes the 'wow factor' like nowhere else.
Natural light floods in from the sunroom and, as the view from the garden beyond instils a sense of wonder, the large dining area and kitchen present ideas of culinary events you have yet to enjoy!
Furnished in warm blue tones, the bespoke kitchen was created by H&M Craftsmen in Ingleton, and the high quality of the workmanship is immediate as you take in the cabinetry adorned with luxurious finishes and shaker style touches.
With double sink, gas hob, electric oven, integrated dishwasher, fridge and freezer, the kitchen has everything you need for cooking up feasts. Along with a bespoke dining area and the AGA oven providing a wonderful relaxing heat throughout, the spacious design makes this, undoubtedly, the heart of the home.

Descend into the spacious dining area, overlooked from the raised kitchen, where a large table awaits. Big celebrations or more intimate dinners, it's the ideal place for guests to relax and decompress. Sit with a cold drink whilst chatting to the cook or take a moment and venture deeper into the snug, where there's plenty of room for comfy chairs to sink into.
Emerge into the sunroom and note how the open-plan layout creates a seamless flow, allowing for effortless entertaining and family gatherings. Bathed in natural light pouring in through the large windows, and the four Velux windows above, the sunroom offers panoramic views of the enclosed garden, creating a picturesque setting for memorable meals and get-togethers.
From the rich oak flooring underfoot, to the sound system with inbuilt speakers, every detail of this area has been carefully considered.

Retrace your steps back through the kitchen, take a left, and make your way into the study. Bright and airy, this area offers an ideal sanctuary for focused work or quiet relaxation. While away the afternoon reading your favourite book or use the calm and peace to de-clutter your mind.
Take another left, and make your way to the utility room, which is cleverly filled with an abundance of cupboards providing ample storage.
This multipurpose room offers a large, organised space, ensuring every item is tidy and arranged. Tucked away discreetly behind a cupboard, you'll find the water tank and boiler and the door ahead leads into the spacious double garage.
Versatile, flexible and full of possibilities, the large garage can be accessed internally as well as from the garden.
With space for two vehicles, the area offers more than a place to park cars, as it holds two separate storerooms, allowing all tools, equipment and other items to be securely stored and organised.

Make your way back through the utility area to the kitchen and out into the hallway. Turn right where the upper floor awaits and note the storage cupboard under the stairs for keeping any household items neatly tucked away.

Ascend to a large landing area, where plush carpet underfoot compliments bright walls. The mixture of natural light and soft textures creates an inviting space ready to explore. Take the first door to your right, and you have access to the outside staircase.
This separate entrance, which brings you to the front of the home, offers a wonderful versatility as well as practical access for seamless transitions between indoor and outdoor living.
Continue on, turn left and enter a spacious lounge that effortlessly combines comfort and charm. A special ambiance is created by the rich oak flooring underfoot, a very attractive sandstone fireplace and dual aspect windows.
Get cosy on the sofa on chilly winter evenings, enjoying the warmth of the log burner as you watch a movie with the family, or use the expansive space for entertaining friends and family, where the room is a wonderful stage for making cherished memories.

The next left takes you into a double bedroom with soft yellow walls and plush carpet. The room is light and welcoming and looks out over the mature plants in the garden below.
Rejuvenate in the family bathroom directly opposite, comprising a shower, washbasin and WC. The half-panelled walls and tiled floor give it a timeless design and overhead spotlights as well as the two windows bathe the area in light.
Turning right past two inbuilt wardrobes offering storage for linen plus coats and jackets and prepare to be amazed by an expansive master bedroom offering an abundance of space with endless possibilities.
With plenty of room for seating areas and sleeping arrangements, create your ideal sanctuary where you can relax and rest. Large windows overlook the gardens and flood the room in natural light. Let your imagination run wild as you customise the space to suit your preferences, whether it's a luxurious king-sized bed, or a collection of twin beds for guests or family members, or perhaps as something completely different! The flexibility of the room means it can be tailored to whatever your family needs, providing a versatility that will let your imagination soar.

Leading from the bedroom, emerge into a spacious dressing room. Currently being used as a gym, the area is perfect for adapting to your needs and adjoins to an ensuite bathroom. Furnished with WC, washbasin, bath and separate shower, there is everything you need for either preparing for the day ahead or winding down in the evening.
Retrace your steps back through the bedroom and into the hallway and ascend the stairs to the second floor, where a bright and good-sized landing greets you. With soft carpet and two Velux windows, the space is light and welcoming. A lovely space to relax, read a book and catch the evening light.
Straight ahead brings you into a large bathroom with a pivoted roof where a built-in bath makes a stunning feature along with washbasin, WC, and shower.
Three more large bedrooms await, all flooded with natural light and space enough to create a multitude of sleeping arrangements to suit whatever your family needs.

Step into your own private oasis where the enclosed garden caters for every need. Unfolding into a series of areas, each offering its own charm and purpose, spend long summer days in the sunshine as you take in the tranquillity of nature.
With a bespoke canopy, designed by Andrew Kay Sculpture, offering shelter, various patio areas as well as a lawned garden, you can enjoy complete privacy as you take in the trees and mature plants.

With a mix of stone walls, fencing and hedges, the garden is landscaped so it's like stepping into different rooms, where you're always able to find a seat for the sunshine or shade.
