Carefully restored retaining the traditional stained glass chapel windows and feature doors this four-bedroom home, situated in the quiet hamlet of Lowick Green, is now used as a successful holiday let and second home, but could equally become a permanent residence with plenty of off-road parking and a lovely garden.

Rolling fields divided by low drystone walls cover the valley floor as you make your way up the peaceful country lane. Find convenient parking for up to four cars on the gravel beside the home allowing for effortless unloading of shopping and suitcases.

Full of charming and original character inside and out The Old Chapel, finished in a handsome Lakeland stone façade, commands stunning, uninterrupted views over the countryside.

Admire the peacefulness of your surroundings as you step through the magnificent arched door and threshold, complete with lanterns to light your way, and onto the slate flagstones of the entranceway.

Guests can refresh in the handy downstairs WC on the left, whilst the door to the right houses the boiler and could be a handy space to hang coats.

Space and storage aren't lacking, with a capacious utility next on the right. Lower cabinetry provides plenty of places for casserole dishes, extra glassware for when guests come as well as room for washer and dryer. Spot the spectacular crisscross leaded windows bringing in tons of natural light giving nods to the sympathetic restoration.

A versatile room lies across the hall, currently used as a snug but could be an additional bedroom, office or playroom; allowing for the children to have their own zone to put toys and games out of the way of the main living space.

The home then suddenly opens up from its cosy start to a grand sociable hub. Vaulted ceilings adorned with broad oak timbers, ornate glazed chapel openings and hardwood floors harmoniously combine with contemporary fixtures and fittings to make a truly remarkable open-plan living-dining-kitchen. Light and bright this cohesive expanse has been carefully divided into three distinct sections all with its own purpose but also allowing for them to flow as one when entertaining or gathering as a family.

Feast your eyes on the sleek white upper and lower cabinets that house all necessary mod cons including built-in fridge, freezer, oven and microwave in addition creating storage for all cooking paraphernalia. Spotlights above the kitchen and under the counters create a calming ambience and zone the space when not wanting to switch on the focal chandeliers, and a central T-shaped islands allows for additional seating and makes for a lovely spot to enjoy breakfasts.

The impressive kitchen flows into the dining area, where there is plenty of space to host friends for dinner parties before relaxing in the lounge. Numerous windows capture the landscape beyond continuing the natural openness that resonates with the home. It is a room that although bright and open works well in for all occasions allowing you to have grand parties but also simple weekends where you can snuggle down on the sofas, that surround the electric fire, and enjoy cosy family movie nights.

Descend the staircase, to find the harmonious restoration continue in the three good sized double bedrooms, all with en-suite bathrooms and two with access to the garden. Neutrally decorated throughout the two rooms to the left, just off the large landing create serene and peaceful spaces to rest your head after a day walking the fells. Refresh and revive in the glistening bathrooms complete with showers over baths, WC, sink and towel rails.

The en-suite in the equally lovely and capacious master room, found to the right of the corridor, is quite special with shower, WC and sink standing alongside a freestanding tub, cleverly placed underneath one of the ornate windows, making relaxing effortless.

Return upstairs and note the clever use of glazing in the bannisters and internal balconies allowing the rooms to feel inviting and welcoming. Make your way upstairs, from the living space to the mezzanine, currently used as a bedroom and benefitting from a contemporary en-suite shower room comprising shower, WC, sink and heated towel rail. The mezzanine really does have a wow factor as it is set into the eaves, with stunning views overlooking the open plan layout. This spacious double room could work as a master but could equally be used as additional living space.
