Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Clover Cottage is a superb barn conversion in the hamlet of Outhgill in the dramatic and unspoilt valley of Mallerstang. In August 2016 the area will become part of the expanded Yorkshire Dales National Park, giving it protected status.

Outhgill is a small community hamlet just 4 miles from the market town of Kirkby Stephen. The town
has good communication links, with easy access to the M6 in the West and the A66 link road to the A1.
Kendal, Lancaster, the Lake District & the Yorkshire Dales are all easily accessible. The scenic Settle to
Carlisle Railway offers national connections.

The cottage itself was converted by the neighbour, a well respected architect, in 2007, to create an imaginatively designed, spacious yet characterful holiday home. It has large, sociable living spaces as well as modern fixtures and fittings and the benefits of double glazing and oil fired central heating.

On the ground floor is a welcoming entrance hall, good shower room, 4th bedroom or study and a fantastic dining kitchen with quality units and solid wood worktops. The dining area has glazed double doors out to the garden. There is also an internal door to the garage.

Upstairs, on the first floor is a superb living room with full height ceiling, beautiful exposed roof trusses and a wood burning stove. There are glazed double doors with a Juliette balcony, enjoying glorious views to Mallerstang Edge as well as a door to an external stone staircase, leading down to the garden. There are two double bedrooms which have a "Jack & Jill" arrangement to the bathroom. There is a staircase up from the living room to a galleried landing and the master bedroom which has velux windows looking over to Wild Boar Fell.

Outside, to the front of the property is tarmac parking for one vehicle in front of the integral garage. To the rear, accessed off a grass lane, is the rear garden which has a flagged patio area and high dry stone wall giving privacy to the lawned garden.

Clover Cottage is currently used by the owners as a second home as well as being let out through Cottages4you( The current Planning Permission is for use as a Holiday Dwelling, and prevents use as someone's main Residence.

Internal viewing is essential to appreciate this exceptional cottage.
