Full Details

A stunning, architect designed home set just a mile away from the southern tip of Lake Windermere within a private, elevated plot of landscaped gardens and tranquil views over the surrounding fells.

A stunning, architect designed home set just a mile away from the southern tip of Lake Windermere within a private, elevated plot of landscaped gardens and tranquil views over the surrounding fells. Barn End was completed in 2013 to an exceptional standard, offering contemporary accommodation to include a mix of open plan and intimate reception spaces, a show stopping open plan kitchen set over looking the grounds and a total of five double bedrooms, all with ensuite bathrooms. The Lake District landscape and private setting has been at the forefront of the design of this home, with the use of modern angular design features and light capturing windows found throughout. The result is a bright and modern family home with intrigue at every turn. Each of the reception rooms opens out onto the large decking area which is magnificent for al fresco dining and entertaining. The quality finishes of the property draw inspiration from the local area, with locally sourced materials all fitted by local craftsmen. The accommodation flows perfectly for modern family life but would also make for the perfect tranquil retreat, close to the best that the Lake District has to offer. The gated entrance provides privacy and security and leads onto a slate parking area with ample parking for at least 5 cars and a double garage with electric roller door and electric charging point.

Barn End, nestled in the up and coming Canny Hill, has so much of the Lake District National Park on it’s doorstep with Lake Windermere and Lakeside close by, and the market towns of Kendal and Ulverston and the honey pot of Bowness, all within easy reach.

Impeccably presented as you drive through the gate, the ample parking courtyard is no exception. Secured by a large timber gate, the slate paddles are both practical and attractive. A paved path leads around the courtyard to the welcoming glazed and Oak door which leads into an entrance lobby. Practically tiled, the entrance lobby also provides access to a cloak room which has been fully tiled and features a Villeroy & Boch wash hand basin and WC. A further glazed and timber doorway, leads into the inner hall, a bright space leading to a variety of reception rooms in the house and with a window giving the first glimpse of the beautiful garden. The sitting room presents a large, more formal space enjoying a delightful duel aspect with far reaching views towards Hampsfell and Gummers Howe. The flooring is finished in an attractive polished Oak and French doors lead out onto the beautiful terrace which has been timber decked and provides a wonderful extension to the living accommodation in the summer months.

The heart of this home is easily the open plan kitchen-dining-living arrangement that provides a place for all the family to relax, unwind and enjoy the breath taking views of the stunning surroundings.
