Property Description

Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Fern Bank enjoys a unique and highly desirable, semi-rural location within the small hamlet of Goose Green, near Preston Patrick, close to the medieval market town of Kendal. Beautifully presented both inside and out, this former farmhouse, reconfigured and extended in recent times, offers the purchaser a characterful home of great distinction with four bedrooms, three bathrooms and far reaching, 360 degree countryside views. An immaculate, gated and generous property, Fern Bank sits within almost 5 acres of natural landscape, the main house blessed with a detached, triple garage and a single storey, partly finished annexe (planning consent approved for holiday use) ready for completion by the purchaser to their exacting needs. Fern Bank also benefits from full planning permission for a 3 stable block with tack room and storage.

Five minutes from the M6 at Crooklands and only 10 minutes from Oxenholme mainline railway station, Preston Patrick is a convenient base for the long or short distance commuter offering easy access to both the Lakes, Dales and into neighbouring Lancashire. An excellent choice of schooling is on hand in Kendal and the surrounding area, a bus stop along the road serving The Queen Elizabeth School in Kendal, whilst Endmoor Primary is just a short distance by car. Kendal is a thriving market town, with independent and high street shops and businesses well established and supported, its out of town outlets equally so, providing a varied and plentiful choice of amenities and facilities for the semi-rural resident.

The original farmhouse here at Fern Bank was converted some years ago to form a beautiful, modern and very social breakfast kitchen which flows effortlessly into the more formal and traditional feel of the dining room and main lounge. A cosy, stylish snug and what currently serves as a small office on the ground floor are more recent additions to the property and offer direct access by way of patio doors to the terrace and garden areas beyond. The magnificent games room to the first floor, again with direct access to a private area of terrace provides the potential to become a luxurious, master suite (subject to normal consents) whilst the four existing bright bedrooms, matched by three good bathrooms offer a balanced layout and a good degree of flexibility and privacy.

This extensive gated site has a large, paved courtyard and private terrace areas, bordered by attractive stone balustrading leading to the south facing, manicured gardens. The formal areas flow into an established orchard with mature plum, damson, apple and cherry trees with an ornamental pond and beyond here, almost four acres of farmland currently provide grazing for livestock; each of the two, spring fed fields gated with stone walls and established outbuildings. A triple garage with up and over doors provide secure parking for three or four vehicles, boats or machinery, the enclosed grounds providing parking for a large number of vehicles and/or caravan.  

Directions From Kirkby Lonsdale take the A65 towards Kendal, turning right at the Crooklands roundabout. Follow the road, go under the motorway bridge and take the next right. Proceed up this road and turn right signposted Lupton Row and the property is on the right.
