A detached farmhouse, blended with the barn that was once attached to it, arrive at Saul Hill along a quiet country road, on route to Potter Fell.

Wrapped up in fields and fell views, pull along Saul Hill's curved driveway and sense the stress of the world melt away. With ample parking for up to ten cars, there is also a garage, currently used for storage.

Nestled on a glorious, south-facing, elevated site, savour stunning views across The Lake District. A world away, yet within such easy reach of local towns and transport links, Saul Hill is a truly unique home.

Make your way inside, stepping through into the large and light kitchen, where underfloor heating offers a warm welcome from beneath the flagstone floor. Classical décor throughout celebrates the heritage of the home, creating a comfortable environment where the heart of the home is in tune with its modern improvements. The Aga sits comfortably beneath the exposed stone wall, whilst modern spotlighting in the whitewashed ceiling, featuring exposed original timbers, balances the centuries.

A comprehensively equipped kitchen, ample storage can be found in the country-farmhouse style cupboards and drawers, with plentiful space for a dishwasher and fridge-freezer (the latter currently housed in the pantry). Served by its own natural water supply, draw a glass of crystal-clear spring water from the tap and sense Saul Hill's connection to nature.

Beyond the kitchen, access the spacious back-kitchen, which also serves as a laundry room, with plumbing for a washing machine, direct access outside and to a downstairs WC - an ideal boot room entrance when returning from muddy walks on the fells.

Returning through the latched wooden door, continue across the kitchen into the sitting room. Step onto engineered oak flooring, with the original pitch pine floorboards retained beneath. On the right, an exposed stone fire surround, not currently in use, adds warmth and ambience through its character nonetheless.

A capaciously sized room, the sitting room is naturally zoned into three sections, allowing the option to watch television, relax and unwind in another area and homeworking in a third.

Original beams add interest against the backdrop of whites and neutral tones, with a log-burning stove inset within a second fireplace, infusing warmth and welcome throughout the room. Windows provide a constant connection to the verdant views and outdoors, alongside a doorway, leading to a front porch.

From the sitting room, ascend the stairs to the half landing, turning left to access the guest annexe.

Instantly inviting, exposed stone, rustic beams and a high ceiling that rises to a mezzanine level, accessed via a spiral staircase, introduce another layer of appeal to this fantastic farmhouse.

Banked into the slope, a fully glazed door provides independent access from outside. Light flows in through the windows and a large Velux in the upper bedroom. With two bedrooms and a lounge, this annexe also has an ensuite, with a large walk-in shower, heated towel rail, wash basin and WC.

Returning to the half landing, ascend the stairs once more to arrive at an upper landing, turning immediately right to reach the first of three further bedrooms at Saul Hill.

A peaceful double bedroom, with exposed beams above the large window overlooking fields and fells, this bedroom also features attractive original wooden floorboards, while a cast iron fireplace is alluring to the eye. With ample space for a desk and other furnishings, the elevated views are the true highlight of this bedroom.

Next door on the right, sneak a peek at the office, where original wooden flooring and panelled walls feature. With B4RN superfast broadband (the home also boasts thermostatic heating controls and solar panels), working from home is a breeze.

Returning to the light and airy landing, sense the space as the ceiling rises up to double height, with light spilling in through large Velux windows above.

Turning right, peep through to the second bedroom, where original floorboards extend underfoot, softened by the grey geometric print wallpaper to the far end. Light and peaceful, a window frames views over the fields and fells.

Refreshment awaits in the bathroom on the left, warmed by underfloor heating beneath the slate grey tiles underfoot, countered by crisp white tiling to the walls. A home in constant connection with the outdoors, a large window frames views out to the garden and field beyond.

Enjoy a soak in the centrally filling bath, with shower over. There is also a wash basin, WC and heated towel rail.

Finally, make your way along the landing to the left before arriving at the primary bedroom. A bountiful bedroom, brimming with light, charm emanates from every angle. Ahead, alcove shelving lined in solid wood and topped in exposed beams instils such warmth and character.

Overhead, the ceiling rises up, embellished in beams, for an airy, tranquil feel. Light flows in from both ends of the room, where engineered oak flooring extends end to end. Due to the banked nature of Saul Hill, to one side, it seems as though you could almost step directly out into the countryside beyond.

A walk-in wardrobe provides ample storage and changing space, whilst the ensuite bathroom is tiled to the walls and underfoot, and features a large walk-in shower with drench head and handheld attachment, underfloor heating, heated towel rail, wash basin and WC. Soak away the aches of the day in the large, contemporary bathtub.

Gardens and paddock
Outside, the gardens at Saul Hill are a true haven for nature, currently accommodating a menagerie of animals including chickens, ducks, and rescue donkeys.

With different areas in which to entertain, relax and reconnect with nature, there is plenty of space in which to lose yourself in the flowers, lawns and paddock.

In spring, the wisteria to the front of the home cascades in colour and aroma.
The gardens, paddock and orchards provide a haven for all sorts of wildlife - from nesting tawny owls to roe deer, buzzards, hares, squirrels and a range of winged visitors including curlews and sky larks, bees and butterflies.

Perfectly private, enjoy relaxing outdoors without the concern of being overlooked. There is great potential to expand further, with much of the land currently not utilised.

A paddock and stable, newly built by the current owner and used to stable the rescue donkeys, could be ideal for horses, or for general storage. It is also served by electricity whilst there is also a further outbuilding for storage.

Those who love the countryside, wildlife, nature and appreciate all the peace and tranquility of Lakes life, perhaps with a view to owning horses, what could be better than Saul Hill: a home with warmth and welcome and wilderness on the doorstep yet all the amenities close by.
