Stone Gable, a detached house in a sought-after village, would be ideal for a larger family or anyone looking for a flexible layout to incorporate home working space.

The house has a large entrance porch leading into a generous inner hall which provides access to all ground-floor rooms.

These consist of a dining room which is a superb family or entertaining space with exposed wooden beams, a feature fireplace and garden views.

An adjacent lounge is another very large space warmed by a multi-fuel stove and with dual-aspect windows illuminating the room.

Across the central hall the kitchen has a range of light-coloured wall and floor cabinets with wooden worktops and is open to a separate dining area.

A well-fitted utility room and cloakroom complete the ground-floor layout.

On the first floor there are four bedrooms configured as three good-sized doubles and a single, all well

presented and with views over the garden or of the surrounding countryside.

The master bedroom, which is tucked away at one end of the house, has a split-level layout and a three-piece en-suite bathroom with shower over bath.

The other bedrooms share the large house bathroom.

Stone Gable sits back from the road with wooden entrance gates opening to a drive which leads to large gardens.

These have a patio with steps down to a side lawn garden with a mature tree and hedged boundary.

An additional patio area with table and chairs suitable for enjoying the surrounding views.

The front garden area is lawned with borders and an ornamental pond. The gardens also have an orchard and wide-ranging views across open fields towards Arnside and Morecambe
