The property is approached via a private gated driveway, with ample space for parking on the drive or in the open fronted barn garage.

To the other side of the entrance hall is a second reception room which is currently used as a home office, also with beautiful cast iron and limestone fireplace and inbuilt library shelving.

This sitting room leads into the kitchen, with bespoke fitted cabinetry, built-in appliances, granite worktop, central island and four oven Aga range with companion cooker.

A double window at the end of the room takes in the wonderful views of the Howgill Fells.

French doors from here open into the superb conservatory fronting the westerly garden, with areas to dine, relax and entertain. A full wall passionflower vine adds a touch of the exotic and French doors open the space onto the outside dining area.

Off the exquisitely decorated rear corridor are an additional suite of rooms, including a cloakroom, utility room with original range and a formal dining room with pantry. French doors from the dining room lead into the fernery and into the wine studio, which could also serve as a games room or additional bedroom or study.

To the outside, the house has beautiful south and west facing gardens, with a seating area and sunken lawn garden to the front of the property.
