Description: Some things never change. There has never been a time when it has been easy to find a home which is truly quietly tucked away from all of the hustle and bustle of modern life and yet is just a couple of minutes walk from the main street of a thriving town. Harder still to find one with its own car parking space, let alone two. And to find one of charm and character which offers accommodation suitable for comfortable 21st century living? Almost impossible one might think. Well, think again and take a look at Thorn Cottage.

So quietly tucked away behind the Christian Science Church that you would not know that this lovely south facing home was even here, you would not guess either, whilst relaxing in the welcoming living room or the sunny dining room, that Stricklandgate is no more than a couple of minutes walk away. There is nothing here to disturb the peace beyond the occasional car pulling into the church car park, and nothing much to make you want to get into your own car, which can be privately parked in front, as all of Kendal is virtually on your doorstep. Great for a young family, even better for one with teenagers, and perfect for those of an age for whom convenience is king.

The attractive double fronted stone built portion of this welcoming home has at least Victorian origins, with a suggestion here and there that parts may even pre-date this. A sympathetically designed extension was added in 2002 to bring the accommodation provided perfectly up to date. Entered via the pretty covered porch, the hallway gives access to the welcoming living room on one side and the sunny dining room on the other. Indeed the orientation of every room is designed to take full advantage of the sunny aspect. Beyond the dining room, in the extended portion of this spacious home, is the breakfast kitchen, supplemented by a separate utility room and a cloak room all on the ground floor. Above is the lovely master bedroom, complete with a sweet balcony (which can be seen on the cover photograph) and an en-suite shower room. There are two further double bedrooms and the house bathroom on this floor.

The walled gardens are all on the sunny southern side or the building, and are easily maintained and which provide two private car parking spaces. With Mauds Meadow, a wonderful little haven just around the corner, and indeed the whole of The Lake District National Park just down the road, what more do you need?

A perfect home whether you are just starting a family, seeking more space to accommodate a growing one or downsizing after they have flown the nest. Come and see for yourself.  

Location: Thorn Cottage is located off Sandes Avenue and can be found by turning down the side of the Christian Science Church. Continue straight ahead across the private car park and the property is the attractive double fronted cottage in front of you.

The bustling market town of Kendal is home to seven primary schools and two well-regarded secondary schools, Kirkbie Kendal School and The Queen Katherine School, and the high-performing Kendal College.

The town centre boasts a library, supermarkets, churches, banks and medical practices as well as specialist artisan providers and independent traders. A leisure centre with swimming pool is located on the outskirts of the town, while a renowned venue for theatre, cinema, music and cultural events - The Brewery Arts Centre - is at the hub of Kendal's renown arts scene.
