The private white gates open up into the grounds with the gravelled driveway leading to the detached single garage and parking area to the front of the property or dropping down to the lower parking area with useful turning space. The property is surrounded by the pristine grounds which makes for a lovely welcome as you walk up to the covered entrance porch. The entrance door opens into a spacious entrance hall with solid wooden floors that continues into the dining area beyond, wrapping around into the sitting room. Also accessed from the entrance hall, the sitting room is a bright and airy space thanks to the triple aspect of windows that provide beautiful views including the show stopping outlook to Lake Windermere and the Claife Heights beyond. An interesting detail of the property is that all the windows to the ground floor have been low fitted so that you can still enjoy the serene views when seated, a lovely attention often overlooked even when living in a National Park. Set within a feature slate surround, an open fire creates a cosy atmosphere in the winter months and French doors open onto the patio which is fantastic for opening up in the summer time. The living room continues to wrap around to enter into the dining area at the end of the entrance hall. There is space here for dining furniture in front of the sliding patio doors that allow for plenty of natural light. There is also a useful storage cupboard just off the entrance hall. Leading next into the dining kitchen, this is a brilliantly proportioned space that offers both a sizeable kitchen and ample space for large dining furniture. Presently it comprises a range of traditional style units and has been immaculately maintained. Appliances include a Bosch oven with a 4 ring gas hob and there is space for fridge freezer and integrated dishwasher. There is a lovely outlook over the rear garden and
the front of the property. Double doors grandly open into the library, a large and versatile reception space presently home to a 3/4 sized snooker table. The room benefits from fitted bookshelves and there is ample space for occasional furniture. It is also open to a beautiful garden room that offers a triple aspect of low level windows extending up to a glazed roof, perfectly capturing the outlook over the garden. French doors open up onto the patio of the rear garden from here, creating a great space for entertaining both in and out. A door leads to an inner hall that has external access onto the front. This is a great practical space that will certainly be appreciated by the keen walker as it leads to a useful boot room and utility and a WC. Perfect for knocking off muddy boots after a walk across the Lake Districts many fells right on your doorstep.
The first floor can be accessed from two separate staircases, one from the living room and one from the inner hall. The benefit of this is that it creates versatile bedroom accommodation that can either be used as one or separated to create a master or guest suite. Each of the three bedrooms offer double proportions and unique views of the Lake. The present master bedroom is accessed predominately from the inner hall and has an ensuite bathroom. The traditional family bathroom serves the remaining two bedrooms, accessed from the large landing off the living room staircase that affords ample space for a study area as presently used. It is worth noting that this property provides ample storage space by way of both fitted wardrobes and large under eaves storage.
Set within private grounds that amount to approximately 2/3 of an acre, White Gates is cocooned in a private haven of mature gardens that have been a labour of love for the present owners. Decorated patios extend onto sweeping manicured lawns, gently sloping down to the lower garden, centred around a beautiful alpine rockery garden and bounded by mature shrubbery and selection of flowering spring time trees that include a magnolia and fruit trees. Beautiful seating areas have been created at the spots where the lovely lake view can be best enjoyed and there is even a pretty summer house and large pond with a fountain water feature to enjoy. As previously mentioned, the gated gravelled driveway affords ample secure parking and includes a turning area and access into the detached single garage.
