Cherry Garth is a wonderful opportunity to buy a detached 3 bedroom property with huge potential and further scope to remodel. In a tranquil setting, in the heart of the pretty hamlet of Brigsteer in a picturesque rural setting with some stunning long reaching views down the valley from the property and its balcony. 

Cherry Garth is a wonderful opportunity to buy a detached 3 bedroom property with huge potential and further scope to remodel. In a tranquil setting, in the heart of the pretty hamlet of Brigsteer in a picturesque rural setting with some stunning long reaching views down the valley from the property and its balcony. The property occupies a generous plot of 0.3 acres which encompass ample parking, shed, tiered lawned gardens, and a pond. 

The property is designed with the living and bedroom accommodation on the first floor level with access out from the rear porch to the patio area and to the ground floor there is a large integral garage, laundry room, large store room with sliding patio doors and an entrance hall with spiral stairs leading up to the first floor living room.

Location

Lanes of quaint cottages, well-kept barn conversions, the occasional more recently built home and colourful gardens, Brigsteer is an exceptionally attractive village in the Lyth Valley, within the Lake District National Park. The gently undulating valley is well known for its damson orchards; in early spring, the distinctive frothy clouds of white blossom grace the fields and are a frequent sight, by autumn the trees are laden with the purple fruits and it is time for harvest. 

Along with Brigsteer, at the heart of the valley are the picturesque villages of Winster, Crook, Crosthwaite, Underbarrow and Witherslack, all being connected by a network of lanes, bridleways and footpaths. Collectively this is a sought-after place to live and no wonder, it offers a delightfully rural but exceptionally accessible country lifestyle; all the advantages without any of the inaccessibility. The Lyth Valley is easy to reach off the M6 via the A590 and with a station on the main West Coast railway line at Oxenholme (Kendal) it offers great connectivity for the road and rail network. 

The valley feels a world away from the noise and crowds of the busy Lakeland villages of Bowness-on-Windermere, Ambleside, Grasmere and Hawkshead but they remain close enough to dip into for day trips should the fancy take you. Windermere and Bowness are easy to reach for schooling and daily essentials ensuring that life in the valley is more about community and embracing quiet country living. 

Brigsteer has a pub and a modern village hall which hosts a variety of groups and classes. In nearby Levens (2.1 miles distant) there is a shop, pub and school. 

Step Inside

Stone steps to a covered walkway lead to the front door, which leads into a spacious hall with wooden flooring and wall lighting and a spiral staircase, a downstairs store room with huge potential to be adapted offers further scope for bedrooms or hobby space, and from the hall a convenient connecting door into the large garage with laundry room.

The living area is a great space combining a dining area and sitting room making it a social space to eat and relax, all with great views over the Lyth Valley. The living room has a wooden floor throughout and an electric style wood burner set within a marble surround. Two sets of sliding patio doors lead out to a large seating balcony taking in views of the garden and far reaching views down the Lyth Valley to the estuary in the distance. The kitchen is positioned to the rear of the property with back porch and features an AGA. There are potentially 3 bedrooms, 2 are currently good size double bedrooms with the main bedroom enjoying super views across the valley from the picture window. The third bedroom is currently an office. The family sized bathroom is very generous and comprises jacuzzi bath, double shower cubicle, WC, pedestal wash hand basin and bidet. There is access in the hallway to an extension loft space.

Step outside

Upon arrival there’s a generous brick laid parking area for several vehicles.  The gardens to the property lay to the north and west of the property mainly laid to lawn which is tiered to two levels with the addition of a pond and shed. Pathways and steps lead around the house and give access at the rear into the rear porch. The gardens are bordered by woodland to the eastern and northern boundaries offering plenty of privacy and peace and quiet. From the upper level of the property, there is an extensive balcony spanning across the full width of the property enjoying a southwestern view across the valley and treetops.
