Full description

Keasden is a lovely area - the approach road off the spinal A65 is wide and open with big views and resident wandering sheep, but turn off the road and the countryside becomes more intimate, trees allow pockets for nestling houses and private gardens to be created, the best of these houses offer part of the expansive view but also sheltered areas so that sitting out on warm days and balmy evenings is possible. This is just what Dubsyke does - an attractive driveway leads off the moor and opens up to reveal a large garden (sit on mower available!) which surrounds the house to three sides. There's a second detached house sitting at right angles to Dubsyke, a former barn which was converted into a house forty years ago and provides a neighbour for security. Thanks to orientation as well as mature and established planting the houses both have private seating areas away from the other so there's minimal infringement of privacy.

Once inside, the house is charismatic and welcoming, it's a spacious family home which can accommodate a crowd as well as providing cosy and characterful living spaces for when it's just the family. The sitting room, dining room and dining kitchen all have glazed doors into the garden so not only does it let in light but it affords extra views of the garden and fells. The kitchen is a great sociable space, but for larger numbers there's a long dining room where the table could be extended and extended! Perfect for hosting Christmas Day and with such an atmospheric spot you'll never be short of visitors.

The first floor is currently arranged as four bedrooms and a bathroom. The fifth single bedroom is currently used as a laundry room, but would make a great shower room either for use or as an en-suite to the neighbouring double bedroom. The house bathroom is modern, crisp and fresh and boasts a loo with a view and to be fair, so does the ground floor shower room!

Mains electric and water (metered) are connected, there's oil fired central heating and drainage to a private septic tank within the boundaries. There's an impressive open fire in the sitting room and a wood burning stove in the dining kitchen, perfect for cosy suppers in the colder months when you want to linger round the table! Like an increasingly number of properties locally Dubsyke enjoys all the super fast benefits of B4RN broadband and is also connected to Vonage for advantageous telephone call rates. Living and working in the countryside has never been easier and with a dedicated study on the ground floor it's all set up for you. If you wanted more space or had a different sort of business in mind, there's also the small barn. The current owners did consider it for conversion for dependant family members but circumstances changed; as it stands, it's a great garage and good for garden storage, but would also convert to a home cinema, a gym, an artist's studio, a super stable and tack room or a party space. Over the years we've seen most things and the lovely thing is here is that the choice is yours, you're not paying for someone else's hobby!
