Fully renovated in 2022, with every modern comfort you could ask for, Low Brow Barn is ideal for those looking to enjoy a dream life in the Lake District. Currently used as a successful holiday let, this two-bedroom barn conversion easily lends itself to a brilliant family home or second home.

Make your way onto the driveway and pull up beside the garage. Against the backdrop of rolling hills, with Lakeland stone walls and slate roof, Low Brow Barn exudes rustic charm and character.

Feel the sunshine on your face as you pass the elevated patio area, perfect for sitting out with your morning coffee, before making your way up the slate steps and through the glass panelled front door.
Let the underfloor heating that extends throughout warm your toes as you make your way into the captivating open-plan layout. Light filled from the windows and contemporary pendant lights that hang from the exposed oak frames and beams, the sense of space and luxury is immediate.

Crisp white walls and solid oak flooring add to the sophisticated charm and welcoming atmosphere that fills Low Brow Barn.
Flow through to the spacious living area, where a log burner is ready to be lit on cooler evenings and get cosy against the warmth as you stretch out in the space. Enjoy the views from the wide windows, where in the winter months, a seasonal glimpse of Lake Windermere can be seen.

Make your way up the illuminated steps into the open-plan kitchen and dining area. Lakeland stone flooring, also benefiting from underfloor heating, extends underfoot and a glazed door floods the area in light whilst also providing access to the outside patio. An impressive Range cooker with hobs and extractor fan stands in the corner, and other appliances include an integrated dishwasher and freestanding fridge and freezer.

An array of cabinetry provides ample storage above and below the black quartz countertops, ready for you to create culinary masterpieces.
Invite friends and family to gather in the dining area to the left, where they can converse about the menu as you serve pre-dinner drinks.

Make your way back to the living area, turn right and discover a wall of glass on your left. Sink into a comfy armchair and spend long afternoons watching the world go by. Lose yourself in the pages of your favourite book, as you hideaway in your own special reading corner.

Peep into the utility room opposite, home to the washing machine and boiler, before taking the illuminated steps up and into a large double bedroom on the left.

Bright and spacious, with dual aspect windows letting in plenty of natural light and neutral décor, the room omits a relaxing and restful ambience. Freshen up in the family bathroom next door, featuring fittings from Porcelanosa and a wonderfully contemporary design. Comprising large walk-in shower, WC, washbasin with storage, Bluetooth enabled feature mirror and heated towel rail, it's a spa-like sanctuary.
The principal suite is next door, spacious and bright, with wooden flooring and neutral décor, exuding the same quality and luxury. Discover the en-suite, also filled with Porcelanosa fittings and comprising, WC, washbasin, walk-in shower, heated towel rail and illuminated mirror.

Garden and Grounds
Pull up onto the driveway where there is private parking beside the garage. Equipped with power and an electric car charging point, the garage serves as a versatile space that's ideal for storing sporting and gardening equipment, or as extra parking.

Steps lead to an elevated patio area, with small waterfall, that enjoys the sunshine and is ready for barbeques, picnics, and dining alfresco beside the woodland area that reaches up toward open countryside.

A walkway of Lakeland slate cobbles takes you around to the back of the house, where the paving extends to a patio area just outside the door leading into the kitchen. Large enough to accommodate seating, is a perfect space to spot the wildlife or enjoy an outdoor meal.

Take the steps that lead up to an elevated area in the woodland, round to the back of the house where further steps take you to a second elevated patio area. Enjoy the views of the Langdales as you relax in the sunshine from this idyllic vantage point.
