Bield is a great home for a family, close to the green in the heart of a popular village on the edge of the Lake District.

The stone-built semi has a spacious layout with a contemporary dining kitchen, off-road parking, gardens and a workshop.

Bield is approached through double metal gates and has a traditional front door with sheltering canopy.

The hallway has downlights, a vertical radiator and door into the lounge at the front of the house.

This reception room has a bay window and open fire on a polished stone hearth with wide wooden shelf over, complementing the wood flooring which flows throughout the ground floor and the bedrooms.

The dining kitchen is fitted with cream-coloured Shaker-style wall and floor units with pale worktops and tiled splashbacks, housing an integrated fridge and freezer and slimline dishwasher.

There is also a corner gas hob with extractor, eye-level double oven and under-unit lighting, plus ample space for a dining table.

An adjacent utility or rear porch has windows out to the rear courtyard garden, additional units which match those in the kitchen and plumbing for a washing machine and a vent for a tumble dryer.

A stable door leads outside.

Going upstairs, the landing has a large loft hatch, window to the side of the house and built-in bookcases.

There are two double bedrooms, one with a front-facing window looking towards trees and the advantage of built-in wardrobes, drawer units and dressing table area.

The bedrooms share the three-piece family bathroom which has underfloor heating.

To three sides of Bield flagged gardens offer space for pots and furniture and there are mature borders with trees.
