MUST BE SOLD. Opportunity For Elegant Country Lifestyle. Detached House in 1 Acre Plot. 5 Bedrooms, 3 Bathrooms, 5 Receptions and Much Much More. Updating Desirable. No Chain.

A most excellent opportunity to acquire a large detached Lakeland stone and slate house, nestled discreetly within Kendal's rolling drumlins and occupying a 1 acre plot. Designed by architect George Webster Architect around 1841 and located in the sought-after village of Old Hutton, an elegant lifestyle is now on offer to a discerning purchaser looking for a substantial home. The property is impressive and full of opportunity to make the most of a flexible layout but also in need of improvements. The property has 5 generous bedrooms (4 upstairs and 1 downstairs), 5 reception rooms and 3 bathrooms (1 upstairs and 2 downstairs). Gardens surround the property with a gated driveway providing turning and parking. Lawns, mature trees, borders and stables. First class opportunity, no chain.

A traditional entrance porch lead to an open plan dining hall with window overlooking the front garden. The hall leads to two further receptions, a generous lounge with an open fire with a wood surround and a sitting room with dual fuel cast iron stove in a stone fireplace and stone hearth. The breakfast kitchen is warmed with a Stanley oil fired cooker which heats the water as runs the central heating. A Belfast sink compliments the units with wooden worktop over. The kitchen is a good size, more so for having an adjoining utility room with another Belfast sink. Follow through to a room flexible in nature but ideal presently as the study and a downstairs shower room, ideal for those having just enjoyed an outdoor activity. Carry on to a notable large reception that would be ideal as a large family kitchen or living room but currently used as an annexe in conjunction with the downstairs en-suite bathroom and bedroom.

Under the stairs is access down to a useful cellar, with the stair leading up to a landing and bedrooms. The first bedroom is generous in size, with wash hand basin and window to the rear aspect. The second bedroom is dual aspect to the front and side. The largest bedroom enjoys the best outlook over countryside to the front and the fourth bedroom also enjoys a light dual aspect. The bathroom is spacious, large enough to reconfigure the 3-piece suite and add a shower cubicle too. The large airing cupboard houses the hot water tank.

The gardens extend to approximately 1.1 acre of garden that surround the property with mature trees and bushes. On the upper tier of the gardens there is a lawn, pond and stables, presently used as an outdoor entertainment area and bar. There are two gated entrances, one to the rear providing easy access to the store and a second to the front drive providing ample parking and turning.
