GRACEFUL, restrained and elegant, this Kirkby Lonsdale townhouse is a gem of Georgian architecture, say the agents, Davis & Bowring.

Grade II-listed Corner Cottage, at New Road, is set over four floors and full of lovely period features, from the staircase, sash windows and shutters, to the panel doors, picture rails and cornices.

There are two reception rooms, three/four bedrooms and a flagged courtyard front garden, screened by high walls and evergreen hedges, with a small back yard.

Although the house is not huge, its size is part of its charm, say the agents, as the rooms are well proportioned and planned.

Leading from the entrance hall is a large cloakroom with ample room for coats, boots and shoes, and a bright drawing room with marble fireplace and gas real-flame fire.

The dining room would be perfect for winter's dinner parties, and the kitchen is light and spacious with a big walk-in pantry, original slate shelves and room for a fridge freezer. There are also two cellar rooms.

On the first floor, the third bedroom is fitted out as a dressing room. The front bedroom has been used in the past as a sitting room as it has a period fireplace with real-flame fire, and is the ideal spot to watch the world go by.

The master bedroom also features a period fireplace with a real-flame fire creating a cosy atmosphere, and the bathroom boasts views from the freestanding bath over rooftops to the fells.

On the second floor is the fourth bedroom with en-suite cloakroom, perfect for the children, grandchildren or guests.
