Vale View sits along a quiet country lane, formerly the A590, the road narrowed and edged with grassy verges and backing onto rolling fields belonging to a nearby farm.
Plenty of parking is available to the side and front of the house, with a single garage also available for parking.
Imposingly Edwardian, fall in love with its austere limestone features, engraved with the name and '1911' date of Vale View.
Stripped back to its shell, after a period of dereliction, Vale View was rebuilt ten years ago from the inside out, with the re-laid floors thoroughly insulated and with underfloor heating fitted throughout both floors - each room controlled independently via its own thermostat.
Warm roof construction means the attic is as warm as any room in the home. Efficient Air Source Heat Pump technology retains an ambient temperature of 21°C.
Step inside as the story continues...
Beyond the large, period front door, pass through the porch into the entrance hall. Laid in hardwood veneered flooring like many of the rooms at Vale View, give a second glance to the staircase.
A labour of love, the orientation of the stairs has been altered from the original layout, each newel post and pitch pine handrail acorn painstakingly repurposed. Replacement acorns and newels have been carefully crafted and introduced where needed. Storage is also found beneath the stairs.
Bespoke sash Edwardian recreation windows, top hung with friction hinges, feature in the dining area, to the left, and throughout Vale View, all fitted with toughened glass.
An electric log-burner is in situ within the modest fireplace for a cosy, traditional feel.
Double glazed doors open though to the kitchen for a semi-open-plan dining experience.
Terracotta and green mosaic splashbacks coat the sage green walls above the worktops, beneath which an array of appliances is fitted. Underfoot, limestone, half an inch thick, sits above underfloor heating...spot the fossils retained within the ancient stone.
A kitchen designed to work for the chef, there is a fitted Siemens induction hob and a bank of four ovens; two separate pyrolytic self-clean ovens, a combi microwave oven and an integrated coffee machine.
Instant hot water is issued from a Quooker boiling tap. Sit at the breakfast bar and await your dinner...enjoy chargrilled sausages and ribs even in inclement weather with the indoor barbecue fitted in the central island.
Light fills the room from both the skylight and the large window above the sink, which frames views of fields dotted with sheep.
Sneak a peek through to the utility room, plumbed for a washer and dryer, with a door leading out to the gardens to the rear. A further door leads into the integrated garage, perfect for storage.
Pull-down stairs reveal a fully boarded and plastered room, in which the hot water tank, and combi-boiler are housed. Illuminated courtesy of the Velux window, there is also electricity in here, making it ripe for development.
From the kitchen continue back into the entrance hall and on to the lounge.
Hardwood flooring extends in here from the outer hall, replaced by limestone floor on the lower living room level.
Step down onto the limestone and soak up the surrounding views of garden and countryside through the many windows to the sides and above.
Snug to the curve of the wall, a raised multi-fuel stove exudes cosiness in wintertime. Note the detail to the skirting boards, ten-inches high according to Edwardian styling, moisture-resistant and cut with ornate detail.
Off from the lounge, step through to the downstairs study. To the opposite side of the lounge follow the light through to the sun room with panoramic views of the fields and breathtaking Coniston mountain range.
Turning right at the top of stairs, before returning on yourself once more, freshen up in the family bathroom.
Recreated in true period style from Burlingtons' Edwardian range, admire the roll top, claw footed bath.
Rest awaits in the first bedroom, decorated in soothing blue, this double bedroom features an original fireplace, reclaimed from the former shop downstairs and rehomed here. Peep through to the bright ensuite, where light is funnelled in through a sun tube.
Retrace your steps along the landing, before turning right into the third bedroom, potentially with space for a double bed and two bedside tables. Steps pull down to reveal a good-size loft above.
Rest your head for the night in the master bedroom, located to the right.
Fitted with dressing table units and fitted wardrobes, the spectacular views to the front and rear are the outstanding feature of this bedroom. Cartmel Fell and the mountains of Coniston surround, best viewed from the window seat.
Peep through to the large ensuite, with a WC, wash basin, spacious rainfall shower, heated towel rail and porcelain tiles.
Vale View's crowning glory is its garden, with its elevated views over the fields and countryside from three levels.
From the sun room, step onto the large terrace and listen to the peaceful bleating of the sheep.
Wander over to the low dwarf wall, where there are further seating areas, before taking the steps down to the second level.
More steps lead to the third, utterly private level beneath a pergola above which yellow and white roses bloom from April to August. With views out to the field, and sheltered by mature rhododendron and rhubarb plants, could this be the perfect spot for a hot tub...?
