Set adjacent to a peaceful lane wending through the rural landscape, turn through the timber gate and onto the gravelled driveway bordered by an expanse of hedge lined lawns finding a parking area for up to four vehicles. Distinctively British, admire the symmetrical Georgian frontage authenticated by the 1868 date plate on the gable end of this handsome whitewashed residence. Approach the elegant entrance illuminated by contemporary carriage lanterns.

Step onto the herringbone parquet style flooring to draw the eye ahead into the bright hallway, traditional style anthracite radiators providing warmth and comfort. The lofty ceiling provides a sense of space, crowned with stylish cornicing. Take a left to find the airy sitting room, bathed in natural light from the newly replaced Georgian style double glazed sash windows. Enjoy a pre-dinner aperitif while relaxing in comfort by the stone fireplace with slate hearth, muted shades and cosy carpeting underfoot reflect the natural surroundings, affording a perfect backdrop to the characteristic features of picture rails and timber doors.

Return to the entrance hall and directly ahead, discover the centrepiece of this magnificent home. The continuation of herringbone flooring leads to a beautifully designed Atlantis kitchen, an abundance of indigo blue shaker cabinetry embellished with copper handles encircles the central island, setting the scene for informal get togethers. Gentle light emanates through the large windowpanes framed with original shutters, overlooking a seating area to pause and enjoy the garden views with morning coffee. Find all the appliances you need to cook up a storm, with Neff fridge freezer, dishwasher, oven, microwave, hob, and heated plate integrated. A contemporary glass downdraft extractor and over island lighting, along with an oak insert, adds a refined touch, all topped with soft white marbled counters.
Set to the right of the kitchen, discover even more space in the original slate floored boot room, providing essential pantry and utility space, perfect for muddy coats and boots after a day of outdoor adventures.
Returning through to the kitchen, take a right into the cinema room, a comfy snug with midnight shades cocooning the enormous sofa and oversize screen for the perfect viewing experience. Cosy up and enjoy movie night on a winter evening with family and friends. An additional entrance porch provides convenient access to the outdoor patio area.

Retrace your steps to the hallway finding additional space for a bench or further storage. On the right find the attractive carpeted spindle staircase, accentuated with stair rods, brightly lit through the expanse of the feature window set on the half landing. A convenient cloakroom with hand basin and WC is tucked discreetly around the corner.

Return and ascend the staircase to discover a continuation of elevated ceilings and period features throughout the first floor, highlighting the eminence of the era. Turn right and sneak a peek into bedroom 3, a bright and comfortable space with deep set window and pleasant outlook to the rear. With ample space for storage and a king sized bed, relax and enjoy a peaceful slumber.

Slip back onto the landing with original full height fitted cupboards for linens and additional hanging space. Next, find the family bathroom, well-appointed with a nod to modernity. Mellow herringbone flooring warmed gently with underfloor heating for comfort contrasts with a slate feature wall evoking spa quality, alongside a freestanding bath tub. The LED mirrored wall cabinet with Bluetooth connection allows you to stream while you soak. A heated towel rail and deep storage cupboard housing the hot water cylinder ensures a supply of freshly warmed towels with a contemporary washbasin and WC adding to the ambience.

Heading back across the landing discover bedroom 2. Soothing neutral tones and soft carpeting create a cosy haven, complementing a further south facing deep set window framed by tall shutters. Revel in a snooze with glorious fell views from a comfortable king sized bed. Ample room for all storage requirements is afforded in this generous space. Step through to the ensuite shower room, clean lines balancing perfectly with gentle dove grey tiled walls. Underfloor heating features beneath the herringbone flooring, the walk in enclosure providing a refreshing wake up beneath the waterfall shower head. Find another LED cabinet with Bluetooth connectivity to add a luxurious touch, coupled with wash basin below.

Retrace your steps back through the doorway and directly ahead lies the indulgent master bedroom, south facing with a warm glow flowing through the shuttered window panes. Sympathetically reimagined by combining with bedroom 4, and with space for a substantially sized bed, enjoy the added luxury of a stylishly finished dressing room with bespoke fittings. Pad across the plush carpet to the capacious ensuite bathroom, the continuation of heated herringbone floor and grey tiling coupled with dramatic slate accents to create an exclusive hotel quality. A freestanding bath and oversized walk in shower with inset shelving adds to the tone, all positioned in front of splendid fell and garden views framed by the eponymous Georgian shuttered sash window. Twin wash basins are set within a textural oak stand underneath, with the LED Bluetooth cabinet adding further atmosphere. The chrome heated towel rail adds further comfort and the final touch to a sumptuous experience.

Serene Surroundings

Returning downstairs to the entrance hallway, find more to explore outdoors. Fully enclosed, an expanse of lush green lawn is the centrepiece to the secluded garden, bordered by a variety of hedging and shrubs ensuring peace and privacy. Follow the sun and enjoy summer gatherings on the choice of terraces and enjoy the blaze of colour from the dramatic Hydrangeas and raised planters, themed in striking shades of purple and mauve. A large stone outbuilding houses the efficient oil fired boiler, while a second offers a handy outdoor WC and supplementary space for garden tools. The addition of a garage is a further option if required, subject to permissions, providing space for additional vehicles or leisure equipment.

Surrounded by rugged farmland with fell views beyond, wander merely moments from the front door to find the award-winning Harrys Cafe Bar, in the relaxed surroundings of Yew Tree Barn, also housing architectural antiques and artisan goods. Enjoy a hearty brunch in front of the warming log burner or make a reservation at one of the cafes sought after supper evenings within the cluster of traditional Westmorland barns. A short stroll along the lane takes you to the neighbouring hamlet of High Newton and Heft, a charming 17th Century Lakeland Inn and fine dining restaurant serving locally reared and farmed produce.

For the energetic, enjoy an autumn ramble in the coniferous woodland of Chapel House Forest. With its endless network of tracks and paths, reach viewpoints from the summit of Gummers How commanding a spectacular outlook along Lake Windermere and to the fells of Coniston beyond.
