Transport links on the A590 take you to nearby Barrow in Furness on the South Lakes Penninsula and Kendal, Grange over Sands and beyond to Windermere and central fells on the A591.

Enter the property via the central door surrounded by double glazed panels which brings wonderful natural light into the airy hallway with wood effect flooring and with full height ceiling, exposing character beams. The open spindled carpeted staircase leads to the first floor.

The pleasant lounge has a dual aspect from double glazed windows and pleasant outlooks over surrounding gardens. There is a raised multi fuel stove set in the corner of the room to warm those colder Cumbrian days which is a wonderful focal point. The wood flooring extends through from the hall and there are downlighters to ceiling.

The open plan kitchen lounge diner is an impressive space with a great range of newly installed shaker style wall and base units having polished concrete effect worksurface areas with matching upstands and incorporating a breakfast bar, an enamelled single drainer sink and drainer, 4 ring electric hob and concealed extractor.

There are further beams and plenty of space for furniture. The additional double bedroom also enjoys similar views and space and has beams to boast. Bedroom 3 is multi purpose, it would work well as a bedroom but equally well as an office/ study with inspirational outlooks over the garden to Groffa Crag.

This has alternative uses for those wish to slightly reconfigure, this could be a self contained living space/teenage den/studio. However, as is, this is a stunning addition to an already exquisite home.

The external areas are relatively easily managed with mainly lawned areas to 3 sides and planted shrub & flower borders and block paved parking areas for 2/3 vehicles. The rear garden meets with the foot of Groffa Crag and therefore the garden appears to be a continuation of the fell and provides a lovely retreat when there is a need for peace and quiet. The vendors along with neighbours enjoy a 6th share in an adjacent paddock.
