Skew Rigg is a double-fronted Victorian home with many period features in a sought-after location within the Greenside conservation area close to Kendal town centre.

It offers ideal family living with a great deal of character both internally and externally with two reception rooms, four bedrooms, two bathrooms and gardens.

The entrance hall has a traditional staircase with Gothic-style newel post, spindles and handrails all in oak and a corniced ceiling.

Doors lead down to the basement, which provides useful storage space, and off to the reception rooms on either side.

The elegant sitting room has window shutters, a feature fireplace and French doors opening to an enclosed and private garden with flower beds and shrubs.

The dining room also has a shuttered window and focal fireplace and the kitchen at the rear of the house has a good range of bespoke handmade painted units finished with attractive granite worksurfaces and a breakfast bar.

An Aga stove with gas hob and three ovens provides warmth and cooking facilities and a side door provides access to the courtyard and second garden.

The first floor has two double bedrooms, both with decorative cast-iron fireplaces and, like the reception rooms, the ceilings have cornices and roses.

One of the bedrooms on this floor has an en-suite shower room and the other has the use of the four-piece family bathroom which also serves the remaining two double bedrooms on the second floor.

Again, they both have feature fireplaces and one of these has panoramic views across Kendal.

A box room and separate wc on the first floor complete the accommodation.

Outside are a front garden, courtyard and garden with seating in addition to the private garden outside the sitting room.
