With breathtaking views out over the fells and estuary, The Knoll is set within a third of an acre of beautifully landscaped gardens, with a lushly planted rockery and lawn to the front garden.
Take the gated entrance, where a driveway runs past the lawn on the left, offering an abundance of parking to the side of the home.
Welcome home. Step inside the front door and via a handy hardwood floor porch into a bright entrance hall, cosily carpeted underfoot. Lovingly renovated by its current owners, The Knoll has been stripped back to bare brick, before being replastered and furnished with new bathrooms, carpet, windows and kitchen.
Immediately on your right, sneak a peek at the master bedroom, where the broad bay window frames watercolour views out to the Furness fells. Spacious and light, the high ceiling adds an airy ambience to this carpeted bedroom, dressed in contemporary, neutral shades. Freshen up in the ensuite, with walk-in shower, vanity unit wash basin and WC.
Continuing straight ahead from the front door, step into the family bathroom, fitted with a bath with shower head attachment, wash basin and WC. Underfoot, luxury vinyl tiles coat the floor for a contemporary finish.
Next door, on the right, bedroom two is decorated in a soothing grey and white palette, with views out over the estuary to the rear. Currently housing twin beds, this room is spacious enough for a king-size bed.
From the entrance hall, make your way through to the sitting room, where a broad window captures panoramic views over the estuary. Take a seat and lose hours watching the ever-changing coastline as the tide makes its twice-daily incursion onto the sands; an impressive sight whatever the weather. See the snowy tops of Coniston and Black Coombe in winter, a truly spectacular sight.
Opening up through an archway and carpeted in cream is the lounge. With ivory toned walls, snuggle up on the sofa in front of the gas fire, nestled within an ornate surround and admire the unsurpassed views through the deep, bay window out to the fells and Kirkby Moor.
Brimming with storage in the cream, gloss cupboards and drawers, step down from the lounge and into the modern, fresh-feel kitchen. Solid oak worktops provide plenty of preparation space, also accommodating a gas hob and extractor hood. Well designed and very roomy, this kitchen features a built-in electric oven and dishwasher, with space for a washing machine and fridge-freezer. There is a handy closet for your vacuum cleaner, mop and bucket. Rinse the glasses in the sink - with fantastic views out over the fields to the front.
French doors flood light through into the dining room, where wooden flooring flows out underfoot from the kitchen. Savour the views from the dining table, or step outside and dine alfresco on the peaceful, private patio to the rear.
With access to the loft space available from the hall, consider the potential to build up into the loft space (subject to planning permissions). When The Knoll was originally purchased in 2018, the owners considered extending up into the loft and installing a flat roof dormer to the rear, to soak up those sublime sea views. There is also the potential to build out sideways, creating a large kitchen diner and even a double garage, once again, subject to permission.
Nestled on a plot of roughly a third of an acre, the large, landscaped gardens at The Knoll were professionally planted by prestigious local firm Hayes Garden Centre over 20 years ago.
Brimming with mature shrubs to the rear, this garden is balanced and in proportion, offering visual interest throughout the year. A large, lush garden, yet surprisingly low maintenance, all that is required is an annual pruning and a little weeding to conserve the borders.
Out and about:
Enjoy the peace and tranquillity of this idyllic location, with so many handy amenities within easy reach.
Only five minutes' walk away is the local Kirkby-in-Furness station, with its northern railway links. The A595 is also within easy reach for motorway links.
A short walk down the road leads you to your local doctors' surgery, whilst The Knoll is across the road from Burlington C of E Primary School, currently rated 'Good' by Ofsted. Buses run to the local secondary schools from the doorstep of The Knoll.
Both local village pubs, The Commercial and The Ship Inn, serve food. A little further afield, within ten minutes' drive, arrive at Ulverston, where you can do a larger scale shop at Booths, Marks and Spencer or Aldi.
A lovely walk to enjoy on a summer's evening is to go down the hill by the train station for a stroll along the coast to Askam, taking roughly an hour. You can also walk up to the quarry and admire the beautiful estuary views.
A versatile home, ideal for a couple looking to downsize or a couple looking to extend both their home and family, The Knoll is simply perfect for those who love living in an idyllic Lakeland setting, with countryside and coastline on their doorstep.
