A home transformed under the 13-year custodianship of its current owners, Wykefield is a home refaced, renewed and re-imagined. A home you can't help but fall in love with, Wykefield, originally a holiday home, soon evolved to the role of main residence.
With floors, windows, electrics and every detail down to doorknobs replaced, Wykefield manages that tricky task of balancing original features with contemporary updates to allow for easy living. No detail has been overlooked in the restoration of this incredible home, with panelling in the original section of the home restored and repainted, and stunning bronze casement windows installed throughout with no expense spared.

Step through the glazed front door and onto the imported Canadian oak floor of the entrance hall; broad and bright, with plenty of space for a sofa, when doffing and donning coats and boots for wintery walks.
Light, space and incredible views combine in the open-plan kitchen-diner on the right. Large windows capture watercolour views out over the extensive garden, to the fields, woodland and fells beyond. Harmonising with the heritage of the home, the handmade Chalon kitchen cabinetry is timeless, whilst the green slate flooring, warmed by underfloor heating, harmonises with the Lakeland setting of the home.

Black marble worktops are sleek and reflect light, whilst the walnut topped central island adds much warmth, brimming with storage beneath and overhung by a striking suspended lighting feature. A sociable space in which to congregate, the kitchen is comprehensively equipped with Britannia Range cooker with eight-ring gas hob, Fisher and Paykel double drawer dishwasher and Quooker instant hot water tap alongside an American-style fridge-freezer

Storage is in abundance in the utility room beyond, with a bespoke pantry cupboard, another dishwasher, a wine fridge and integrated washing machine and dryer. Furthermore, French doors open to a patio - perfect for alfresco entertaining and summer barbecues.
Note the secret door in the kitchen floor, which opens to provide access to a series of cellar rooms, which could be perfect to convert into a cinema room and bar or could be retained as a wine cellar.

Returning to the entrance hall, entertain and unwind in the Snug on the right, where oak flooring continues underfoot and an ornamental slate fireplace adds old school warmth. French doors open out to the patio, ideal for drinks in the sunshine.
Continuing to the right, sneak a peek at the downstairs cloakroom, with wash basin and WC, beautifully styled with feature sconce and chandelier lighting, before heading into an inner hallway to the right.
Ahead, a part-glazed door opens to a versatile room with incredible views out over the garden. Amply lit by natural light, this room is perfect as an arts and crafts room, or as a home office. High ceilings are a Motif throughout the home, amplifying the light and airy ambience.
Making your way through to the right, follow the enchanting country flow of the home left to arrive at what currently serves as the main study. Contemporary shades of grey adorn the walls with a desk perfectly positioned to take in the far-reaching views over the garden to the countryside beyond, framed by French doors. Take a break from work and step out onto the patio for a recharge of caffeine whilst breathing in the balancing freshness of Lake District air...

Served by good broadband, with 75 m/b download speed, Wykefield contains all the technological touches you would anticipate, including Sonos, CCTV, Cat6 wiring outlets behind all televisions and Wifi throughout.
A versatile home, this study could also serve as an accessible ground floor bedroom for multi generational living, served by a dressing room and fully tiled shower room ensuite. Naturally segregated along its own inner hallway, this potential suite provides perfect privacy for long- and short-term guests.

Returning to the main open hallway, it's time to discover the original part of the home. On the left a wall of original stained-glass infuses light and character through to the dining room, supremely spacious and bright courtesy of windows to several sides. Dine alfresco on the front terrace, with far reaching, elevated views over garden and countryside.

Flowing off the dining room, the living room retains a connection with the outdoors, with a broad bay with French doors providing direct access out to the terrace. Interconnected spaces provide the perfect party flow when entertaining - both indoors and out - throughout Wykefield.

Exuding 1800s formality and flair a panelled passage leads through to the drawing room, where a handsome fireplace houses a gas fire. Relax and unwind whilst admiring the incredible and everchanging views out over the garden and countryside. With its open feel, yet zoned, separate rooms, Wykefield transcends the centuries to provide characterful comfort with a contemporary, sociable flow.

From the entrance hall, ascend the elegant staircase, carpeted in hardwearing hessian, before arriving at a light-filled landing which opens up to a large home gym. Work out inspired by the stunning scenery framed by wide windows which open to a glass balustrade- encased balcony - ideal for a spot of morning yoga. Look down over what once was the bowling green.

Just off this space, step down to discover a guest bedroom. A spacious double, views extend over a beautifully planted border brimming with rhododendrons, and tiered levels, lined in slate walls. Refresh in the ensuite shower room, with wash basin and WC.

Back across the landing, on the right, overlooking the rear is another guest double, preceded by its own, private, tiled shower-room ensuite, also featuring wash basin and WC.
Oak flooring extends underfoot once more in this spacious bedroom, which can easily accommodate a super-king-size bed and comes replete with elevated views over the fells and fields.
Descend a few stairs to take a separate branch of stairs, passing a useful linen cupboards before sneaking a peek at the shower room next door.
Across the broad and bright landing, bedroom four enjoys exclusive access to this elegant shower room. Set beneath a sloping ceiling, a large skylight fills the room with light.

Sequestered away at the end of the landing, a door leads to the master suite; a serene sanctuary drenched in light. An archway ahead frames the master bedroom, preceded on the left by a bright and bountiful bathroom. Tiled underfoot, enjoy a soothing soak in the freestanding bath, with showerhead attachment, set beneath a large skylight. A wet room shower, heated towel radiator, WC and wash basins also feature.
Step through into the main bedroom, brimming with light and refreshingly spacious. From your super-king-size bed absorb the living watercolour vistas from the windows and embrace the moment. Wykefield's finest attribute is its sublime, secluded setting surrounded by nature.
A false wall screens a 'his and hers' dressing room area with fitted wardrobes running the width of the room.

Soak up the sunshine throughout the day and late into the evening in this south-facing 3.6- acre garden. Mainly laid to lawn, this extensive yet low maintenance garden has been lovingly restored over the years by the current owners.
Pathways and steps lead you between the lawns and patios (perfect for barbecues and a hot tub) and separate garden rooms, including a Japanese garden by the former bowling green, walled orchard and dedicated vegetable plots; perfect for growing your own and living off the land.

Traditionally planted borders and beds feature magnificent rhododendrons and magnolia trees, whilst the 100's of meters of beautiful stone walling helps to create different levels. Make the most of the walking and cycling trails, rock faces and lakes by storing all your outdoor equipment in the converted stables block, now serving as a selection of garages, workshop and storage space, alongside a separate car workshop with a double height roller door and car lift.
