Meaning Full of Life, Naniki sits on the outskirts of Lane Foot Farm and enjoys uninterrupted and far reaching countryside views towards Ingleborough, the second highest mountain of the Yorkshire Dales. Built in 2005 in keeping to the rural farm setting surroundings, the property has since undergone extensive refurbishments throughout the spacious and versatile accommodation. This includes the bespoke fitted kitchen by Mark Wilkinson, Bathrooms by Alexander & Sancto and Farrow & Ball wallpaper and paintwork. Characterful features such as exposed stone walls, wooden beams and lintels create an authentic and charming feel to this otherwise contemporary 5 bed family home. Further enhancements include underfloor heating, wiring for a SONOS sound system and a high-tec security system for modern day comfort. Those looking to work from home will also be pleased with the bespoke fitted home office and hyper-fast B4RN connectivity. Outside offers plentiful space for private family enjoyment with neat lawns, pretty flower beds and a short hedgerow boundary. A raised flagged patio proves as the ideal spot from which to enjoy the truly enviable views, with plumbing for a Jacuzzi and space for alfresco dining. There is also a separate gated driveway that leads solely to the detached double garage.
Newton is a peaceful countryside parish that offers an idyllic rural lifestyle whilst still benefitting from quick connectivity to the nearby Market town of Kirkby Lonsdale and junction 36 of the M6. A full range of amenities can be found in Kirkby Lonsdale, a 10 minute drive away, including a supermarket and range of shops, cafes, pubs and restaurants. For local schooling, there are good primary schools located in both Arkholme and Kirkby Lonsdale. Naniki also sits within the catchment area for QES secondary school and Casterton/ Sedbergh prep and secondary schools.
Wooden gates open out onto the private block paved driveway of Naniki which provides ample space for the secure parking of several vehicles. The flagged patio leads around the front, alongside the lawn that looks out over rolling countryside and to the glazed front door of the property, opening into a welcoming entrance hall with practical flagged stone floors. Immediately adjacent, a glazed door and panelling looks through into the impressive formal dining room, a great space for entertaining guests with external access leading back onto the front drive. The living room is bright and spacious, designed to bring the nature inside with full length windows flooding the room with natural light and providing a triple aspect, the most impressive of which looks out over the lush fields to the distant Ingleborough Mountain. For the winter months, a cast iron log burner sits atop a flagged stone hearth with rustic exposed stone surround. Tucked away at the rear of the property, the private home office is ideal for those who are looking to work from home and includes a full range of quality bespoke fitted American dark Walnut units with leather handles, designed by Mark Wilkinson. The beautifully crafted kitchen has also been designed by Mark Wilkinson to capitalise on space and makes for a wonderful family kitchen, ideal for the most discerning of home cooks. The Walnut units are hand painted with hand-stitched Mocca leather handles, leathered granite worktops, a Lazy-Susan turner and there is also the option to reinstate the tear drop, reinforced Murano glass breakfast bar. High quality fitted appliances include NEFF oven, Falcon range master with 5 ring gas hob and griddle with Miele extractor, integrated Miele dishwasher and tall integrated fridge. The angled windows capture the perfect scenic image of the open countryside and the floor is finished in complementary Travertine. The separate utility room offers further storage with space for a large freezer and a range of units encompassing space and plumbing for washing machine and dryer. There is also a beautifully finished WC with wash hand basin and space for cloaks and the like.
Set out over a further two floors, there are a total of four double bedrooms and a separate dressing room that serves the master and is fitted with a full range of wardrobes, cupboards and shelves. This could easily be converted into a fifth bedroom if required. The large bedroom on the second floor enjoys a range of fitted wardrobes on the landing and an ensuite. Three out of four of the bedrooms actually enjoy ensuites alongside the house bathroom, all of which have been beautifully designed by Alexander and Sancto and are fitted with Duravit sanitary ware, Victoria plumb storage units and finished with Porcelanosa tiling.
