Full description

Converted in 2004 by local developer Trafalgar Homes, the owners have lived here and loved it since new. Situated in a quiet rural farmstead development of the original farmhouse and four barn conversions, Beechwood offers modern country living with character, generous space and flexible accommodation with some lovely countryside views. If asked to pick, here are a few of our favourite things?

Room to spread out - the rooms are all very well proportioned and attractively presented with a gross internal measurement of 2499 sq ft (232.2 sq m).

Make an entrance through the original Wain door opening into a double height entrance hall on the middle floor - as the main feature, there's an impressive central staircase going both up and down.

Great for entertaining - a sociable and family friendly lower ground floor with an attractively fitted dining kitchen with black Aga, a library with bespoke craftsmen made bookshelves open to the dining room as well as a lovely sitting room with a wood burning stove. Both the sitting room and the dining kitchen have glass doors out to the seating terrace which frame the view over the garden to fields beyond. In summer with both sets of doors open into the garden there must be a great inside/outside sociable flow of space - we love the idea!

Optional extras - there is also a second sitting room on the first floor - an attractive room with a ceiling open to the apex, Velux windows and a second wood burning stove. This could be used as an occasional bedroom but makes a great playroom (or den for older children), hobbies room, study or home office.

Potential - a useful storage room could be converted into a shower room if you wanted facilities on the top floor but the easy to access 'loft' space is really handy.

Family friendly gardens - there are landscaped gardens to the front providing an attractive approach to the house and a bench perfectly positioned to take in the views. To the rear, there is a lawn garden with established borders, a seating terrace, perfect for alfresco dining and raised vegetable beds if you fancy growing your own. A small gate provides access across neighbouring land to the front so the rear garden isn't landlocked.

Garaging - there is a semi-detached single garage 19'8 x 12'3 (6m x 3.75m) with power, light and a cold water tap. It would also make a good workshop if you like to create.

Prime position - situated just outside Sedgwick, a small and popular village in South Lakeland, highly accessible for the market town of Kendal (4.6 miles), commuting via the M6 J36 (5 miles) and Oxenholme Station on the West Coast line (3.5 miles) is easy. There's good access to schools with a primary school at neighbouring Crosscrake and a choice of secondary schools at Milnthorpe, Kendal and Kirkby Lonsdale. Locally there is Low Sizergh Barn Farm shop and cafe as well as the Strickland Arms (a popular foodie pub) with the National Trust's Sizergh Castle, gardens, cafe and shop close at hand. If you love the outdoors, then Sedgwick is accessible for the splendour of the Lake District, the undulating Yorkshire Dales and Lune Valley and the coastal AONB at Silverdale and Arnside.
