Wrapped up in 1.3 acres of landscaped gardens, paddocks and uninterrupted views, Ryesdale is Kendal's hidden gem.
Pull through the securely gated entrance and leave the hustle and bustle behind. Embraced by orchard views to the left and woodland to the right, sense the seclusion as the symmetrical and handsome outline of Ryesdale, comes into view.
Ample parking awaits upon the driveway with a large, secure double garage. Alarmed and fitted with CCTV, Ryesdale is a safe and secure family home. Savour the far-reaching views over Kendal, the Shap fells and Morecambe Bay to the west before making your way to the front door, recessed within the Lakeland stone walls of the home and sheltered from the weather.
Stained glass flanks the front door, delivering light through into the grand entrance hall, whose well-proportioned space and symmetry create a pleasing sense of ease and contentment. Renovated and reloved by the current owners, traditional elements harmonise with contemporary stylings; note the original panelling painted in chic grey tones. Oak floor gleams beneath the chandelier lighting, inset within an ornate ceiling rose. Sconce lighting is evocative of castle torchlight, with reclaimed cast iron radiators restored for a warm welcome. Deep, detailed coving ribbons the crisp white ceiling providing the perfect balance of period glamour and contemporary minimalism. Flow left and into the large lounge, where light flows in through the broad bow window, drawing the surrounding countryside in.
Nestled to the rear is a play room, dressed in warm sunflower tones. Also serving as a study, watch the comings and goings from the window, looking out to the driveway.
Returning to the entrance hall, cross over into the contemporary family kitchen. Installed only three years ago, the kitchen has been modified and opened up to embrace the spacious dining room, inviting the glorious garden views through. Fitted by local craftsman Mark James Kitchens & Cabinetry of Clapham, the highlight of this bespoke, handmade kitchen is surely its stunning central island with curved oak breakfast bar. Large porcelain tiles flow underfoot, with Silestone worktops providing plenty of preparation space. Inset within a recess is a contemporary grey electric Aga replete with roasting and warming ovens. Space too for a large American-style larder fridge-freezer, inset within the shaker-style grey units. With a surplus of storage and pantry cupboards with automatic lighting, there is a place for every culinary utensil and essential in this kitchen. Doors open out to the garden, for that perfect party flow and alfresco dining in the summer months.
Flow through into the dining room, where complementary casing houses the wine fridge and a glass cabinet. Ideal for entertaining, this mirror image to the lounge draws light in through its bountiful bow window to the front, with an ornate chandelier inset within an intricate ceiling rose. Feel the subtle warmth from the underfloor heating, running throughout the kitchen and dining room. A gas fire is set within a tiled surround for ambient glow on winter evenings.
Original period flooring connects you through to the utility room, where there is plumbing for washer and dryer. A Belfast sink is housed within the oak worktops, with ample storage in the cream gloss cupboards.
Continue along the landing to the master bedroom, a capacious space with stunning views out over the open countryside to the fells. Basking in light all day, come rain or shine the everchanging views are always a sight to behold. Freshen up for the day in the ensuite, featuring shower cubicle, wash basin and WC.
A large linen cupboard on the landing is handy for storing towels and bedding, conveniently close by the family bathroom.
Glossy porcelain tiles, warmed by underfloor heating, provide the luxurious setting for the family bathroom next door. Soak away the aches in the freestanding tub, or start the day with a spritz beneath the shower. Across the way, a separate WC is conveniently close by.
Sneak a peek at the fourth bedroom, overlooking the front and currently used as a walk-in wardrobe. It could also serve as a home office or nursery.
From the landing, a loft hatch reveals a drop-down ladder, accessing a part-boarded loft where there is plenty of storage.
Dressed in gentle tones of blush pink and soft grey, the third double bedroom is as large as the master, framing evocative views over Kendal and the castle in the distance.
Downstairs, open the French doors from the kitchen and step outside. Soak up the sunshine throughout the day on the patio, an all-day entertaining hub, perfect for breakfast, barbecues and watching the sun sink into the glowing horizon at the end of the day.
Lush, well-kept lawns to the front and side provide plenty of space for play, with a designated fenced area for football and other fun and games. A barked area is perfect for the trampoline and climbing frame. Enjoy the open space of the paddock to the rear; newly built stables and a tack room area provide the potential to house your own ponies at Ryesdale. A garden designed to be enjoyed and explored, discover the different rooms including an orchard brimming with apple, plum, damson and pear trees alongside a woodland area with a shed hidden away.
Private, quiet, secure and spacious, soak up the sunshine and views all day long.
