Property Description

Full description

An attractive four bedroom Lakeland farmhouse and barn conversion with half acre beck side gardens and flexible accommodation. Lanthwaite is set in an idyllic location, surrounded by Lake District fells and open countryside and only a short distance from the A66 and M6 for transport links.

The property is approached by a quiet country road, leading to a large gated gravel driveway and parking area. There is additional parking to the front of the property and small garage. The front entrance leads into a front porch with cloakroom, with the driveway leading into a rear glazed porch.

The entrance leads into the traditional farm house kitchen with informal dining area, with all areas having Lakeland slate flooring. The kitchen has fitted cabinetry and central island with granite worktop and high end fitted appliances, including an Aga range cooker. Off the kitchen is the spacious ground floor lounge has character beams, inglenook fireplace with multi-fuel stove and stairs to first floor bedrooms.

On the side of the property is the barn conversion, providing an impressive double height dining area with door to garden and a ground floor bedroom with ensuite. A feature staircase from the dining room leads to a large mezzanine sitting room, with railed walkway to the main house bedrooms. The three first floor bedrooms all enjoy views of the gardens, with two having fitting wardrobes and drawer units and the master bedroom having an ensuite shower room. The house bathroom is spacious and has a bath with shower attachment and heated towel rail. A large partially boarded loft offers storage space, with a large airing cupboard on the landing.

The property is currently set out as one residence but the barn conversion section offers good potential as a separate living annex or holiday let, with the necessary planning consents.

One of Lanthwaite's most desirable features are the beautiful mature gardens, which total half and acre. To the rear of the property is the main south facing lawn garden area, with flower borders and an elevated patio to sit and watch the visiting wildlife, including frequent red squirrels. Pathways lead through a woodland area, with wooden hut, down to a tranquil beck side seating area. A hidden pathway leads along the beck and back to the main garden.

To the side of the house is a further wooded garden with lawns, log store and door into the garage/workshop.

The property is surrounded by open countryside and the gardens face towards the iconic Ullswater fells, which can the viewed in winter and potentially throughout the year if the garden trees were thinned. The area is highly desirable, with Ullswater and the northern Lake District on the doorstep and yet the hamlet is very peaceful due to little through traffic. The nearby A66 offers excellent transport links to Keswick and the market town of Penrith is a short drive away with major amenities and rail links.
