Situated in a private and quiet hamlet of three other homes, complete with double garage, master suite, open-plan kitchen-diner, generous living room with log burner, all set in 5 stunning acres of gardens and pasture land complete with field shelters, this four-bedroom contemporary detached home has everything a busy family may need and more. Imagine coming home after the daily grind to complete tranquillity and rurality, yet having the luxury and convenience of being moments away from the M6.

Make your way up the peaceful country lane to drive onto a generous shingle driveway that has an abundance of parking space as well as easy access to the detached garage and fields beyond the home.

The Byre dates back 180 years, fully refurbished in 2007 with the nearby farmhouse and barns, into a charming and generous home filled with spacious and airy rooms prioritising the incredible views and allowing tonnes of light to flood in. The original thick walls ensure the heat is retained and the traditional barn features have been blended seamlessly with more contemporary fixtures and fittings creating a warm and comfortable home.

Step inside to an inviting and generous hallway where plush carpet extends underfoot. Once you've hung up your coat on the adorning hooks, slide off your shoes and take the first door on the left to discover the first of the bedrooms. A large double room with handy built-in wardrobes and drawers as well as a contemporary and crisp white tiled en-suite shower rooms. A versatile space that could equally be used as an office, snug or playroom.

Across the hallway, take the step up and into the character filled living room with two patio doors capturing the beauty of the garden and surrounding countryside and saturating the room with light. Once used to house tractors but now with a focal log burner, with oak mantel stands between deep red accent walls beneath the double height sloped ceiling adorned with original beam mirroring the engineered oak flooring and creating a cosy atmosphere come rain or shine.

Discover the open-plan kitchen and breakfast room, in which homely and captivating sloping ceilings reaching up to the apex and double patio doors continue. The neutral décor of the home allows the rustic beams and wooden doors to really stand out as well as being a blank canvas for the features of the SieMatic kitchen. Light floods in from high apertures and upper and lower cabinets provide excellent storage alongside housing the built-in Miele fridge and freezer, Neff dishwasher, warming drawer, microwave and oven. Guests can perch at the integral island whilst the host cooks up a storm on the central Neff induction hob before dining at the table fit for six. Note the door to the rear of the kitchen where a handy utility houses more storage, a second sink, washer and dryer.

Back into the hallway, take the opening into a most useful space with built-in floor to ceiling cupboards ideal for coats and boots. From here find the fourth bedroom, currently used as an office but has ample room for a double bed and free-standing furniture as well as being adjacent to a contemporary family bathroom consisting of shower over bath, sink, WC and heated towel rail. Visitors could also use the useful bathroom.

Retrace your steps and ascend the staircase where oak banister leads past a unique partially glazed opening letting the natural light flood both up and downstairs. Note the convenient understairs storage.

At the top of the stairs the landing leads both ways taking you to the final two bedrooms. To the right stands the master suite, giving full advantage of the peaked ceilings complete with skylights allowing for generous wardrobes and access into more storage in the loft space. The neutral décor continues and with the full-length picture window showcasing the tranquil views the room is certainly the perfect place to relax in and get a peaceful night's sleep. Find a large en-suite shower room with double vanity unit making busy mornings effortless.

Across the landing lies the last of the sleeping spaces in the form of an equally good size and airy double room with built-in furniture. Sink into the bathtub of the en-suite and let your troubles soak away.

Gardens and Grounds

The outside space of The Byre is simple and serene extending to 5 acres of easily maintainable terraced patio, garden, paddocks and fields, an ideal spot for someone seeking a small holding or for the avid gardener to create a beautiful garden amidst the tranquil countryside. Take a wander up the hill in the field to the left of the home and be rewarded with the most incredible views out to Morecambe Bay, Arnside and over to the Lakeland fells.

An elegant, curved sandstone flagged entertaining terrace leads from the four sliding doors of the home allowing for the inside and outside to flow as one, having BBQs with friends and slow Sunday mornings drinking coffee in the idyllic sunshine. Admire the buzzards and kites circling above the woods or the deer that visit at the top of the field. To the right of the terrace another more sheltered area provides further seating when hosting larger parties.
Take the stepping stones through the grass, beyond the terrace, up to a more formal manicured lawned garden where apple and pear trees bloom. Low fences allow the fields to be divided, providing areas for animals to roam up to the tree line of the nearby woodland. Two field shelters, both with hay storage and water supply currently used for horses, stand conveniently away from the home.

If you would like to become more sustainable, then make use of the greenhouse and vegetable patch that lie to the right of the garden.
The home benefits from a detached double garage with up and over electric doors and a handy pedestrian door to the back for convenient access. There is plenty of space for storing gardening equipment, as well as housing a potential workbench and shelving plus roof space, partially boarded and set into the eaves, is filled with possibilities to fully convert for extra storage.

The Byre really is an absolute gem of a home with generous living set in impressive surroundings and all close to local amenities. If you desire the best of both worlds, then add The Byre to your 'must view' homes.
