THIS exquisitely finished period cottage in a South Lakeland hamlet could be yours.

The owners of Box Tree Cottage, in Whasset, just outside Milnthorpe, are inviting offers of over £390,000 for this charming home.

It has been modernised with more than a nod to its heritage, creating a blend of contemporary living spaces alongside exposed beams and stonework.

The stunning three-bedroom property lends itself to a wide variety of buyers, including families, with the welcoming entrance porch providing a perfect place to take off muddy boots after a walk in the idyllic surrounding countryside.

Through the porch is a jaw-dropping kitchen with an open-plan design featuring a high vaulted ceiling, original wooden beams, and stone-tiled floor.

The new navy shaker-style base units complement the traditional style with solid oak block worktops adding warmth to the space.

A breakfast bar offers an area for informal dining and sociable cooking with family and friends.

A snug room, featuring a multi-fuel stove and original stone and oak fireplace, leads off the kitchen, and could accommodate a dining table to comfortably seat six people.

Through the snug lies the light-filled living room in which modern clean lines sit seamlessly with exposed stonework and original beams, warmed by another multi-fuel stove set into an exposed stone fireplace.

The stylish ground-floor boutique hotel-style bathroom boasts a large walk-in shower, surrounded by timber effect aqua boarding and a free-standing claw foot bath.

Walking up the wood-panelled staircase, a generous double bedroom is light and bright with a window seat affording open views of the surrounding countryside.

Across the landing is another charming double bedroom with elevated and panoramic views of the Cumbrian countryside and access to an en-suite consisting of a quadrant shower cubicle and a mains-fed shower with a rainfall showerhead above.

The third, single bedroom is currently used as an office but would also be ideally suited as a nursery or craft room.

Outside, a curved limestone wall leads into the low-maintenance gravelled driveway offering space for parking and surrounded by hedging and iron railings. 

A step leads up to the side garden benefitting from raised beds and mature trees and shrubs to soften the space, with a patio area to the rear boasting commanding views over the countryside to the front and rear, and a further lawn can be found, with a patio space to sit and relax on your own or with guests.Contact Waterhouse Estate Agents on 01524 760048
