Only ten minutes' walk from the local beach and a stone's throw from the thriving market town of Ulverston, The Hawthorns is perfectly poised for the very best of both worlds.

Pull up along the in-and-out driveway, where landscaped lawns and neatly tended borders wrap around the detached, fully renovated home, providing ample privacy.

Park up in front of the home or in the deep garage, where electrics are in place for an EVC point, should you wish to install one.

Make your way in through the front door, where steps lead up into a light and airy entrance hall, where views over the garden and down towards Morecambe Bay greet you instantly through two large windows reaching to the ceiling of this double height space.

Tiled flooring underfoot is practical when returning home from countryside walks, with a convenient cloaks closet tucked off to the right handy for coats and boots. Next door on the left, discover a cloakroom with wash basin and WC, part panelled in ocean blue and cheerfully dressed in wallpaper depicting the highlights of the capital.

Returning to the main entrance hall, wood-effect LVT flooring is warmed by underfloor heating, creating a captivating space where light and warmth combine. The curving spiral staircase ahead is a handsome focal point, with plenty of seating around the hall transforming the area into a sociable hub.

Nestled off the entrance hall is the study, a good size carpeted and cosy room with pleasant views up through the village to the church in the background. A versatile room, with a fold out sofa-bed, it also serves as an accessible ground floor bedroom for guests.

Double doors lead through to the lavishly sized living room, where dove grey carpet replaces the wood of the entrance hall. Attractively set on two levels, the room naturally zones itself into sociable spaces and quieter corners, all brimming with light courtesy of a multitude of tall, broad windows, framing captivating views out over the garden and down to the sea.

Infusing warmth throughout the room is a log-burning stove, set within a Scandi-vibe timber panelled chimney breast. Take a seat to the left of the fireplace, in the corner where the two large windows meet, and leaf through a book, watch the birds on the feeders or simply admire the view. Escape to the garden through a handy door and take afternoon tea on the patio. The current owners have retained and refurbished the existing fitted storage, replacing the shelves with solid oak for a contemporary finish.

Across the entrance hall, make your way through to the kitchen, warmed by underfloor heating and furnished in curved deep blue cabinetry, extending into a practical peninsula with undermounted washbasin for preparation and casual conversation. Throughout the home, the crisp contemporary palette of white and grey is accented by splashes of colour for a warm, modern, minimal feel.

A combination of plinth lighting, spotlights and natural illumination from the large windows ensures this room has a fresh, bright ambience. Ample storage is available in the cabinetry, with a range of Neff appliances including induction hob, ovens and dishwasher with copper accents in the handles.

Originally two separate rooms, the kitchen and dining room have been opened up to provide free flowing open plan living. Dine overlooking the garden or throw open the doors to enjoy lunch on the sunny, south-east facing patio. Views extend over the fields making the most of the rustic views.

Tucked off the kitchen is the practical utility room, with ample storage, plumbing for washer and dryer, a sink and access out to the garden.

Link from the kitchen to a practical entrance porch, with access to the front door and through to the garage, part of a modern extension undertaken in 2022, served by electricity and lighting and with a spacious upstairs annex. With fantastic views over the countryside and coast, high ceiling height, Juliet balcony and luxury ensuite with bath, shower, wash basin and WC, this area is ideal for Airbnb rental or for use as a private home office, guest accommodation, gym, accommodation for dependent relatives or as a studio.

Returning to the main entrance hall, take the curving staircase up - admiring the impressive views through the tall windows, to emerge on the carpeted landing, which provides access to three double bedrooms and a family bathroom.

Step out from the landing onto the flat roof balcony, where rails run along the perimeter for safety and views extend over the garden, fields and fells down over Morecambe Bay.

Directly ahead from the landing, relaxation awaits in the master suite, a spacious, carpeted bedroom where you can wake up to fantastic views over Morecambe Bay and out to Ingleborough on a clear day. A row of fitted wardrobes in dove grey provide plenty of storage, with an ensuite bathroom benefitting from underfloor heating, a shower, wash basin with vanity unit storage and a WC.

Continuing along the landing, refresh and revive in the family bathroom, where jade green tiles and feature wallpaper bring a pop of colour to bath times. Fitted furniture accommodates the WC and vanity unit wash basin, with a large bath with overhead shower and heated towel rail. Underfloor heating adds a cosy warmth.

Back on the landing, glance up to spy a hatch leading to a part-boarded loft, handy for storage.

Next, arrive at bedroom three, where crisp white walls and shades of grey combine for a modern feel. Fitted wardrobes harmonise with the colour scheme, with ample space for a double or king size bed.

Finally, to the left, arrive at bedroom two, a bright and comfortable room with feature curving wall alongside plenty of space for a king size bed and wardrobes. Views extend over the fields and fells to the coast.

Garden wraps around The Hawthorns, manicured lawns and landscaped borders brimming with all-season planting.

Follow the paved and gravel pathways to discover a selection of seating areas, amidst the colourful planting.

Two summerhouses provide plenty of scope for relaxing afternoons in the garden, one of which is perfectly positioned to take in the views out over the countryside to the sea. Sit down in late afternoon with a cup of tea and admire the view.

Planning permission is currently in place for the development of a four-bedroom home to the side, which will have its own separate access using one of the two driveways.
