A desirable street, lined with handsome grey stone homes, No. 48, Greenside stands imposingly back above the road, extending over four storeys. A friendly neighbourhood, the café culture of Kendal town centre is only a five-minute walk down the hill.

With parking available to the rear, where you can also find Greenside's garage, take a moment to absorb the grandeur of No. 48 from the front; three bay windows towering up, overlooking the wide street below.

Making your way up the steps, enter the ground level of this substantial 1870s home, and sense the warm and welcoming ambience as you step from the Minton tiled porch into the entrance hall.

Light flows in through the breathtaking stained glass of the traditional front door, the kaleidoscope of colour imbuing the entrance hall with a sunny, cheerful disposition. Sense the scale and proportion of the home immediately, as the deep blue stair runner directs your eye up to the archways of the first floor ahead. Wooden flooring and high ceilings evoke the heritage of the home, where so much character and originality has been retained throughout, alongside sympathetic modernisations, including the introduction of double glazing to all the main rooms.

Streaming with light, step through to the carpeted drawing room on the right, lavishly sized and with a large, shuttered bay window looking down over the town. Typical in its Victorian proportions, the high ceiling, embellished by multi-layered cornicing, ornate ceiling rose and chair rail, all add character.

Opening up to the rear, a large sash window adds a second aspect, ensuring a constant flow of light throughout the day, whilst warmth emanates from the log-burning stove. Wooden floor replaces carpet to the rear of the room.

Coming out of the drawing room, a cloakroom on the right is conveniently located, with wash basin and WC, panelled to the lower walls and with complementary sage green wallpaper of a period feel.

Continuing along, sneak a peek at the practical boiler room, also serving as a handy boot room with hanging space and storage.
Ahead, follow the easy flow of the home through to the atmospheric dining room, where modern shades of white and ocean blue bring out the formality of the room. Original stone flooring extends underfoot, with warmth filing the space courtesy of the original Range, nestled beneath a robust stone lintel.

With its double height ceiling and exposed stone, the kitchen beyond brims with light from wide windows and high Veluxes. Fitted cupboards provide plenty of storage, whilst the log-burning stove emanates toasty warmth.

A functional and substantial space, the kitchen is sociably designed, with ample space for a dining table and sofa, allowing different activities to occur simultaneously and for all the family to gather at mealtimes. Should you wish to update this kitchen, there is ample scope and space for the introduction of a central island. Burgundy shades sit comfortably with the period of the home, elegantly lifted by white walls. Nestled off the kitchen is a traditional pantry, providing plenty of storage.

From the entrance hall, ascend the stairs to the first floor, where straight ahead and right, refreshment awaits in the family bathroom. Part tiled to the walls and underfoot, a corner shower accompanies a bath with showerhead attachment, a wash basin and WC.

To the right of the bathroom, continue ahead to arrive at bedroom three. Spacious, light and bright, blue walls combine with white skirtings and a white period surround with cast iron fire. The large sash window frames views out over the town and countryside. Built-in wardrobes provide plenty of storage.

Retracing your steps, make your way briefly up a series of stairs to arrive at another bedroom on the left. Another substantial double bedroom, the original fireplace sits within a marble surround, with verdant views out towards the countryside surrounding Greenside. Peaceful and serene, the colour scheme of the décor is in keeping with the name of the home. Built-in wardrobes provide ample storage.

Next door, light floods into the second bedroom, where a bountiful bay window frames elevated views out over the front. Classic cream walls combine with bright white woodwork and cornicing for a characterful appeal. Bestowed with an original fireplace, this carpeted and peaceful bedroom is a restorative space in which to relax and unwind.

A stroke of genius, No. 48, Greenside's laundry room is conveniently located on the first floor, to the front of the home, minimising treks up and down the stairs to wash and put away clothes - ideal for a busy, growing family.

Take the stairs up once more, to the second floor, currently serving as a self-contained master suite.

Directly ahead is an office, ideal for those working from home, with a handy ensuite bathroom with wash basin and WC to hand, whilst the master bedroom lies to the front of the second floor. Windows to two sides draw in so much daylight, with wooden flooring underfoot. Light, peaceful and quiet, there is ample space for a super-king-size bed. Relaxing and calming, wake up to incredible views out over woodland to the rear and the twinkling lights of Kendal to the front.

With ample space for wardrobes and chests of drawers, the bedroom is also served by a luxurious bathroom, where parquet flooring flows out underfoot with teal tiling to the lower walls. Soak away the aches in the large tub with showerhead attachment.

48A Greenside
No. 48, Greenside comes with an added benefit; a self-contained, lower ground floor, one-bedroom apartment with its own independent access and patio. Ideal for long term or holiday let rental, this apartment could also serve as independent living for an older relative or teenager returning home from university.

Sunny, private and yet open, the terraced garden comprises pockets of alfresco pleasure in which to enjoy the outdoors.

Stone steps lead up from the kitchen to a patio, the perfect place for a table and chairs for sunny summer barbecues. Continue up a second set of steps to a neat lawn, in which you could grow the perfect cottage garden. At the very back of the garden there is a handy garage, currently used for storage
