This historical house is obvious from external and internal features with stories dating back to 1778 when it was a Malt Kiln. From the road admire the façade of this handsome home that has been carefully modernised throughout but still keeping the character and charm of its origins. The impact of the main door flanked by ground to roof breathtaking mullion Westmorland windows is immediate. Grand, yet welcoming, making you want to go inside and discover more.

The current owners of No. 9 have futureproofed the home with new plumbing and wiring throughout featuring CCTV and Nest system, that allows for economical floor separation, and ensuring WI-FI and Sky cabling is integral throughout.

Your journey begins at the other side of the home where you can park your car, in the first of the spots closest to the main road, and make your way to, what the current owners use as, the front door.

Step into the heart of the home - the open plan dining-kitchen. Where under unit lighting highlights the heavy grey stone flooring that blends seamlessly with the modern fixtures and fittings of the kitchen. Appreciate the garden views as you wash up in the kitchen sink.

Contemporary coloured upper and lower cabinetry provide ample storage with all new fixture and fittings including induction hob and built in double oven, dishwasher and fridge-freezer. Whilst the deep grey units topped with quartz style worksurfaces of the integral island, provide additional seating, wine fridge and hidden plug / USB sockets.

Move to the dining area and be blown away by the restored cast iron range, that takes pride of place in the original alcove. Little glimpses into the past are everywhere as you discover an old gun cabinet hidden in the woodwork beside the range.

Take the first right out of the kitchen and descend the stairs, where sensors illuminate the way to find a fully carpeted basement that houses a fantastic utility with kitchenette and ample pantry storage as well as separate shower room. In addition to this the last room where exposed beams adorn the ceilings and alcove shelving is a very versatile space, currently used as a cinema room or man cave. This could make the perfect teenage hideaway or bedroom for guests.

Return to the hallway, taking the door to the left into the large lounge where an original arched alcove mirrors the windows and inbuilt cupboards allow for items to be tidied away. Natural light floods in through two stunning mullion windows giving views to the outskirts of the town. In the colder months' shutters can be drawn creating a cosy retreat.

Moving back into the hall notice edging of the original coving as the hallway widens to allow for the open fire with decorative hearth to take centre stage in an additional sitting area. Hunker down by the fire and take things slowly, a good book and glass of wine in hand. This is a versatile space that could be transformed into a wonderful dining area.

Storage is abundant in No. 9 with more built-in cupboards in the hallway and at the top of the staircase providing ample places for you to hide things away.

Make your way up to the first floor where bedrooms await.

The first room on your left is a peaceful haven with lots of natural light, original fireplace and ample space for a wardrobe and a double bed for you to rest your head.

The adjacent bedroom has three lovely mullion windows providing stunning 90-degree access to views overlooking Main Street. Exposed wooden flooring, ceiling coving and Victorian Cast Iron feature fireplace set on glazed green tiles sets the room apart.

Lights awakens behind the mirror and on the underfloor heating tiles of the floor as you step up into the tranquil family bathroom. Take your time in the freestanding bathtub or wash away a hard day in the modern shower surrounded by stylish marble effect tiles.

The walk-in cupboard to the left is the electronic hub of the home and also a useful storage area.

Ascend the stairs to the final floor where the Blackened Farrow + Ball Paint, used in the lounge and hallway, moves gracefully up the stairs adding cohesivity amongst the floors. The light floods in to the space where huge floor to ceiling windows capture the outside and create a sun filled staircase.

At the top of the stairs is cosy bedroom three, currently being used as an office with built-in shelving, and plenty of room for double bed and standalone furniture along with a lovely aspect beyond, to Ingleborough.

The final space, completing the home, is the Master Suite. Retreat to serenity where mornings will be spent at ease in the dressing room and vanity separate to the main sleeping area that takes full advantage of being at the top of the house with lovely aspects out to the town.

An Italian freestanding stone rolltop bathtub is waiting for you on the underfloor heated tiles of the en-suite bathroom. Again, an immaculate finish with the shower and quality sanitaryware. No need to locate the light switch as the room is illuminated via sensor on first approach.

Garden and Grounds

Living in the centre of a market town, No.9 has the incredible asset of not one, but three separate parking spots found to the right and rear of the home.

The garden is the perfect depiction of form and function creating a mini-Georgian garden, the ideal place to escape the hustle and bustle. Found to the side of the home it is hidden behind hedging that flanks the black wrought iron access gate leading onto the street. The space is split into different zones that border the reclaimed flagstone pathway and central patio area. Decorative stones adorned with potted plants and stone benches lie to the front with picture-perfect manicured lawn situated directly in front of the home's stunning façade.

The use of different textures and colours creates a warm and inviting paradise where the lush green of the grass softens the chunky sandy coloured flagstones and the black pergola and decking add a striking depth of modern and refinement.

The ability to use the garden come rain or shine has been carefully thought out and celebrates areas to entertain and socialise as well as sit and rest. A large summerhouse makes the ideal location for parties with space for seating as well as handy storage. Alfresco dining in the summer can be enjoyed on the peaceful decking, under the pergola whilst you admire the views of the large mullion Westmorland windows of the home and the fells in the background.
