Nestled down a private lane that leads to just four other houses, the estate includes extensive land, brimming with untapped potential and opportunities.
Just a ten-minute drive out of the bustling market town of Kendal, and a short stroll away from the village centre, Carling House is an extensive home on the edge of the small village, Burneside. Rural, but not remote, with ample space both inside and out, get ready to discover a home that has it all.
Make your way down the quiet cul-de-sac, and note the detached garage facing the home that also belongs to Carling House. With an attached shed and ample land, this space offers room for parking cars, boats, or motorhomes and holds great potential. Currently used as an allotment, take in the generous space that holds so many possibilities, ready to be explored later, before turning into the gates and onto the private driveway that leads up to the home.
Pull up by the side of the well-tended front garden where there is plenty of space for parking, and step inside the front door into the bright and welcoming sun room.
South facing with glazed windows on all sides, it's a wonderfully warm welcome into the home. Take a seat and admire the views of the well-stocked front gardens as you ease off walking boots and hang up jackets, before continuing into the large hallway.
Bright and spacious, the hallway is both elegant and impressive and sets the scene for the luxurious attention to detail that is found throughout Carling House. Warm, oak wooden flooring extends underfoot, mirroring the richness found in the bespoke stately doors that beckon you to explore.
The seamless fusion of traditional design and modern comforts is evident, with decorative cornices, ceiling rose and large archway directly ahead, graciously welcoming you inside.
Run your fingers over the glass beaded wallpaper, shimmering effortlessly in the light, in the iconic 'Strawberry Thief' design by William Morris, adding a stylish and special ambience. The oak flooring continues ahead into the kitchen where neutral, sleek cabinetry aligns the walls. With ample countertop space ready for whipping up culinary delights, it's a cook's paradise.
Contemporary in design with scattered spotlights and window illuminating the area, integrated appliances include a Bosch double oven and induction hob with an overhead extractor, fridge, freezer, microwave, and dishwasher.
Step through the door on the left and discover a large utility area. With access to the outside, it's a perfect place to enter the home after adventures in the elements. This room makes easy work of cleaning any muddy paws, and there is ample space to keep coats and umbrellas.
Home to the washing machine, with a tall cupboard housing the ironing board, it's a perfect place for all laundry and other household tasks. Wall and floor cupboards matching those in the kitchen provide extra storage space for gadgets and wine.
Retrace your steps back through the kitchen and turn right into the large dining room. French doors frame the pretty views of the garden and open out onto the patio area, inviting you to dine alfresco in the summer months. Filling the room with light and warmth, soak up the sunsets as you relax in the room and let the boundaries blur as you wander between the indoor and outdoor spaces.
Truly the hub of the home, invite friends and family over for lavish feasts and intimate suppers. At Christmas time, decorate the room and enjoy a dinner like nowhere else as you celebrate in the stunning space with loved ones.
Make your way back into the hallway, turn right under the archway, and then turn left into the living room. Originally two rooms, the ceiling whispers to the architectural past of the home, and offers a unique design that adds to the charm and character. With three large windows flooding the area in light, and offering views of the garden, the room is bright and airy and oh so welcoming.
Sink into the sofa, or one of the cosy armchairs, and warm up by the log burner with its beautiful Lakeland slate hearth and watch the flames dance. Take a book and under the sunken spotlights that adorn the central run of the ceiling, lose yourself in the pages as you relax. Perfect for entertaining, or relishing time alone, the room is a flexible and inviting space that you'll want to return to again and again.
Make your way back into the hallway and ascend the half-turn staircase with open spindles to the spacious upper landing with its large window framing the beautiful rural view. Turn right and up one step into bedroom three, where the light and views are in abundance. A large window runs the length of the facing wall, and along with the window on the right, the room is filled with natural light. Perfect as a studio or home office, the space is bright and airy and also makes for a peaceful and relaxing double bedroom.
Return to the landing, turn right, and discover another spacious double bedroom. With neutral décor and deep carpet underfoot, it's an oasis of calm. The principal suite is next door, also with an abundance of space. Elegant cornicing and ceiling rose adds to the sense of space and the window overlooking the river and golf course floods the room in natural light.
Open the door to the left to find the en-suite, featuring heated towel rail, washbasin, WC, and shower.
Retrace your steps back to the landing and discover the family bathroom on your right. A storage cupboard housing the boiler offers ample space to keep all linen and towels neatly organised, and the sleek tiled walls and wooden floor give it a timeless feel. Comprising heated towel rail, washbasin, WC, and bath with an overhead shower, all contemporary in design, it's the perfect place to begin or end your day.
Garden and Grounds
Endless possibilities await as you discover the outside secrets of Carling House! Around a third of an acre in total, to the front of the home lies a curved driveway framed by two majestic Scots pine trees amidst well stocked borders and immaculate lawns. A brick-built wood-store sits just around the side from the entrance into the utility area, along with a lean-to shed, offering convenient storage.
From the dining room, French doors open out onto a large patio area, perfect for drinks and barbeques. A large lawn extends, ready for games and entertaining, all surrounding the house and inviting you outside. Spend lazy weekends enjoying the tranquil space as you spot the birds that visit, including a sparrowhawk and woodpecker.
Wander down the lawn, toward the Lakeland dry stone wall and enter a secret garden. Completely private and secluded, discover a pond filled with wildlife, a greenhouse with raised beds and a secret patio. Tucked away from the house, it's a hidden sanctuary with unlimited potential. Keep it as is, or use it as a canvas for your creativity! With power already running to the area, it could easily be used for a variety of purposes.
Make your way along the driveway, through the gates, and across the road to the large, detached garage. Fitted with power, it's the perfect place to keep vehicles safely stored away along with sporting equipment.
A shed adjoins the garage, ready to store any garden furniture and beyond that is another extensive area holding limitless possibilities. Currently used as an allotment, where an array of vegetables is grown and bees are kept for delicious honey, the area could be used to build a home office or even a separate home. A stream runs at the side of the home and in such a quiet and peaceful setting, the area is as flexible as you are.
With such an abundance of space, both inside and out, in such an idyllic location, Carling House is a home filled with luxury, comfort and endless possibilities.
Families are well served with local schools, the village primary school being a short walk away and rated good by Ofsted, and secondary schools in Kendal. Independent schooling is available at Windermere School.
With its flexible living areas, luxury finishes and ample outdoor spaces, Carling House is an ideal blend of comfort, character, and luxury in a perfect location.
