Property Details

This fantastic and deceptive detached home boasts some of the most envious views in Lancashire. Picture windows, balconies and outdoor seating areas enjoy panoramic views across the local countryside, out over Morecambe Bay and to the Lakeland Hills. In the same ownership for the past 22 years, the current vendors have meticulously maintained and extended the property. Cleverly inverted to capitalise on the views from the living areas, the ground floor leads to a formal reception room with picture windows running the full length of the external wall and two balcony areas from which to enjoy the stunning outlook. A good sized family kitchen is further complemented by a dining room and the ground floor also hosts two out of the four double bedrooms on offer. The other two double bedrooms are located on the lower ground floor but do not in anyway miss out on the expanse of views. Enjoying a peaceful yet convenient setting, this home would be ideal for commuters wanting a quieter pace of life whilst still enjoying quick access to the M6 motorway.

The countryside village of Over Kellet is a small community that provides a village store, post office, a pub and well regarded primary school. The west coast mainline and a wider range of useful everyday amenities including doctors, dentists and supermarkets are available in nearby Carnforth, only a 5 minute drive away. The immediate local area has a number of community led villages, including Nether Kellet, Bolton le Sands and Halton, and the property is ideally located for access into the city of Lancaster, which boasts both boys and girls Grammar schools, two universities and a large hospital amongst an excellent selection of vibrant cultural and historic places of interest.

Accessed off a quiet, private lane of 5 houses, the tarmac driveway sweeps around to the front and back of the property, providing ample private parking for several vehicles and access to the double garage.

Accommodation To the front, a handsome wood panelled entrance door leads into the welcoming entrance hall which flows throughout the ground floor. There is a useful airing cupboard and access into the part-boarded, fully insulated loft area which runs the full footprint of the house.

Cloak Room/ WC A handy facility that comprises wash hand basin and WC.

Sitting Room 26’7 x 17’2 (8.09 x 5.24) This fantastic reception room was extended out in 2002 to include a full length wall of picture windows and access onto two external balcony areas. The room is flooded with natural light and the panoramic views are simply breathtaking. A lovely setting of rolling countryside, glimpses of the local fishing lakes, Morecambe Bay and moving to the East, on a clear day you can see the peak of Helvellyn which is the third highest point in England and in The Lake District, located 40 miles away. There is a classic gas fire for the winter months, when the sparse trees allow views to the Barrow dockyard across Morecambe Bay and beautiful sunsets can be enjoyed throughout the year.

Kitchen 13’9 x 12’2 (4.18 x 3.71) A classic Siematic kitchen which includes a good range of wall, drawer and base units that incorporate a double sink and a half and Belling double oven and grill, 5 ring gas hob with chrome splash back and Britannia extractor hood over. There is also space and plumbing for a dishwasher and fridge freezer. A door leads out into a porch area with practical tiled floor and external door making for an alternative entrance, ideal for muddy boots and shoes.

Dining Room 10’7 x 8’11 (3.22 x 2.72) Located just off the kitchen, making it ideal for entertaining guests, with space for a formal dining table and chairs.

Master Bedroom 26’0 x 12’6 (7.93 x 3.80) The master bedroom enjoys generous proportions and a quiet setting to the end of the property. A triple aspect allows for plenty of light and more amazing views. There is also a full length range of fitted wooden wardrobes that run the length of the wall and around to include a vanity dresser and wash hand basin and a useful storage cupboard.

Bedroom 2 12’0 x 10’5 (3.65 x 3.17) A great sized double bedroom situated to the rear of the property and as to be expected, further wonderful views of the surrounding countryside and beyond. This room also benefits from a large storage cupboard which could easily be utilised as a wardrobe.

Bathroom A four piece suite with practical lino flooring and complementary plastic cladding to the walls. The suite includes a corner shower, bath with hand held shower, WC and vanity wash hand basin. There is also a heated towel radiator.

Lower Ground Floor From the hall, a glass balustrade staircase leads down to the lower ground floor hallway.

Bedroom 3 12’3 x 11’9 (3.73 x 3.58) A comfortable and bright double bedroom with vanity wash hand basin and views of the Lakeland Hills.

Bedroom 4 12’10 x 12’3 (3.90 x 3.73) Currently utilised as a study, this further double bedroom enjoys a lovely garden aspect.

Shower Room Fully tiled and briefly comprising a built in shower cubicle, vanity wash hand basin and WC.

Double Garage 26’7 x 17’1 (8.09 x 5.20) Internally accessed from the lower ground floor hallway, the spacious double garage benefits from one electric remote control up and over door and one manual up and over door that lead out onto the rear driveway. There is a handy utility area with a sink and drainer along with space and plumbing for a washing machine, dryer and additional fridge and freezer if required.

Outside Westerdale enjoys an elevated position with unrivalled views, from Morecambe Bay to Warton Cragg and the Lakeland Hills. The tarmac driveway leads from a private lane to the front of the property, where there is a neat raised lawn area bordered by a stone wall and mature bushes giving privacy. Also sweeping down and around to the garages at the rear, there is ample off road parking for multiple vehicles. The rear lawn is an abundant haven for gardeners, with manicured lawns leading through an array of mature bushes and plants. There are a number of native and non-native trees, all of which create a most delightful backdrop and private surround to this very special property. Furthermore the balconies, accessed from the living room, enjoy a front seat to some of the most wonderful sunsets Lancashire has to offer.

Directions From M6 Junction 35 follow the B6524 towards Kirkby Lonsdale. Passing through the village of Over Kellet, turn left onto Moor Close Lane and the entrance to Westerdale can be found, second on the left.
