Only a five-minute walk from Kendal town centre, The Bailey is perfectly situated, nestled close to Bowling Fell for picnics and dog walks, and only a stone's throw from shops, restaurants, museums, theatres and gyms.

Aptly named, given its close proximity to the ancient ruins of Kendal Castle, The Bailey is one of a handful of unique homes in a design award-winning modern development built in 2014.

Off street parking is available for two cars, with a gated entrance to the front where there is a large patio area, perfect for catching the evening sunshine. A handsome home, with period symmetry and balanced bay windows, The Bailey blends the character of traditional design with the comforts of modern living.

Broad and bright, the entrance hallway beyond the front door features durable wooden flooring beneath the high ceilings, whilst wide doorways with feature architraves serve as stylish portals to the many rooms. Period features merge with modern living throughout the home; sunken spotlights, kitchen bifolds and automatic lighting in bathrooms, alongside traditional elements that soothe the soul.

This blend of traditional and contemporary living is perfectly expressed in the living room to the right, where contemporary cherry red notes to the feature wall, a stunning media wall opposite, fire shelving and real-flame modern fireplace accompany a shuttered and panelled bay window overlooking the front.

A fantastic family room, snuggle up on the corner sofa for movie night or congregate at Christmas for games in front of the fire in this cosy, carpeted and spacious room.

Across the way, mirroring the handsome shuttered bay window design of the living room, the dining room also features alcove shelving and a bespoke-built wine rack. Light floods through this spacious room, where there is ample space to accommodate guests for dinner and drinks.

Double doors to the rear open to the kitchen, allowing for quiet separation or a sociable, easy flow.

Wooden flooring replaces the cream carpet of the dining room as you step into the kitchen, where immediately to the left a cosy seating area can be found before the French doors opening to the Indian stone-paved patio beyond. Relax with a cup of coffee and admire the impressive views out over Kendal and Benson Knott and watch the distant trains pass - a miniature Hornby track for your entertainment.

Beyond, the Shaker-style dining kitchen has ample space for a breakfast table, alongside an array of white units with plinth lighting beneath, and black granite worksurfaces. Appliances include a double Rangemaster, six-ring cooker, with a custom-made Jo Vincent splashback depicting the shades and hues of the Lake District - an outdoor playground only a 20-minute drive from The Bailey.

With space for an American-style fridge-freezer, undermounted sink and built-in microwave, with Farrow & Ball Light Blue shades to the walls, this contemporary kitchen is the hub of the home.

A sociable space, throw open the bifold doors and in summertime the patio becomes another room, an extension of the entertaining space indoors and handy for barbecues. In wintertime, the Luxoflex concertina blinds fitted within the bifold doors contain thermal properties, helping to retain the heat.

Reconnecting with the entrance hallway, across from the kitchen discover a side lobby, an ideal boot room entry from the side door and handy for dogs.

To the rear of the entrance hall, there is access to a handy cloakroom on a sensor-light system, with wash basin and WC alongside a good-size utility room with plentiful storage and a sink. Further storage is available in a deep closet in the hallway.

Next to this cupboard, take the returning staircase up to the first floor. Also dressed in the same Farrow & Ball Light Blue as in the kitchen, there is a European feel to the décor at The Bailey, with connecting elements following from room to room for a comfortable flow.

Emerging on the large landing, there is ample space for an office desk and chair in this light and bright area.

Turning right, step into the peacefully styled master bedroom, where far-reaching views extend from the triple window out over Kendal and Benson Knott. With plenty of space for a large wardrobe and a spacious ensuite, fully tiled, and furnished with wet room shower, WC and wash basin with vanity unit storage.

A family bathroom sits across the landing from the master bedroom, part tiled and featuring an attractive arched, shuttered window. With separate shower, heated towel radiator, wash basin and vanity unit and WC, this room is fully equipped for all the family.

Another deep cupboard provides plenty of storage on the landing, before continuing along and turning right to arrive at a privately situated bedroom overlooking the front through a handsome bay window. Spacious and bright, it also benefits from its own ensuite with an impressive, curved feature archway above the shower.

Arrive at another bedroom on your way back to the main landing; a good size single bedroom overlooking the front - ideal as a home office should you require.

Overlooking the front, with elevated views, arrive at a spacious bedroom, brimming in light courtesy of a large bay window and featuring plenty of storage beneath the stairs. Spacious double bedrooms are a highlight of this home.

Ascend a second set of stairs up to the loft conversion on the second floor, admiring the high-quality woodwork seen in the skirtings, doors and handrails throughout the home.

Another large landing, illuminated by a Velux window is ideal as a snug lounge, home office or even a gym (currently accommodating a sofa, television and exercise bike).

Ahead, to the right is ample storage within the eaves, with a washroom with WC and basin through a door to the left.

Ideal as a private suite for guests or older teenagers craving their own independence, there is also a light-filled double bedroom with stunning curved window, exposed beams and deep fitted storage.

Soak up the sunshine on the spacious patio outside of the kitchen, with far reaching views to Kendal town centre. Low maintenance and relaxing, there is space for a hot tub in this perfectly private oasis.

Sit out at the front and enjoy the evening sunshine on the large, elevated patio or access the communal garden.

With Bowling Fell to the rear, enjoy walks with the children or dog, or even have a kickabout or summer's day picnic. There is so much nature on your doorstep.

Out and about
Nestled in the friendly Kendal enclave of Beast Banks, the local area has a fantastic 'village feel', with local pub The Rifleman's just a zig zag from the front door, easy access into Serpentine Woods, through Kendal Golf Club and up Scout Scar and Cunswick Scar - one of Wainwright's favourite walks - with views into the Langdales on a clear day.

Only five minutes' walk down the hill from the back gate takes you to The Brewery Arts Centre, with its cinema screenings, art festivals and theatre performances.

Dip into the delights of Kendal's annual mountain festival or pay a visit to Kendal's museum. A town with a rich history, discover the cobbled alleyways, greengrocers, and independent outlets.

Brimming with coffee shops, cafes, restaurants, bars and bistros, dine out on a new cuisine every evening.

Within five minutes' walk, enjoy everything from breakfast to evening tapas at Spanish restaurant Comida, or sample seasonal modern British food at The Moon.

Also bursting with sandwich bars and a number of well-known chain restaurants, family favourite Pizza Express is also only a short walk away. In Kendal you are spoiled for choice when it comes to supermarkets, with a Marks and Spencer, Booths, Asda, Sainsbury's, Tesco and Morrisons to name but a few.

Walk or cycle to Kendal Leisure Centre for a spot of swimming or take out a membership at one of the town's many gyms.

Within easy reach of both Yorkshire and the Lake District, Windermere is roughly 20 minutes' drive away, with Staveley also easily accessible. Enjoy Sunday dinner at one of the popular local pubs in Underbarrow and Brigsteer.

Commuting couldn't be more convenient with Oxenholme station a walk away (or ten minutes by car) with its mainline links to Manchester, Glasgow, Edinburgh and London.

Blending character and contemporary comforts, The Bailey offers easy living; ideal for those who love to host and entertain, those who relish the outdoor lifestyle and appreciate the cultural conveniences of being on the brink of town.

A home that reveals itself as you transition through - there is so much more than meets the eye to The Bailey.
