Field Close is a fine and impressive detached stone and slate built house of substantial proportions occupying a beautiful, slightly elevated site, enjoying delightful far reaching views across the rolling South Lakeland countryside towards the Cumbrian Fells.
The house has evolved over many generations and the current owners have continued the work right up until recent times. The property now offers beautifully presented family accommodation that is spacious, versatile and full of character, whilst also being appointed to an excellent standard.
Presently one side of the house is fitted out as a two storey self-contained apartment with private entrance with connecting doors on both ground and first floors, which can be simply reintegrated into the main part of the house.
The main house has two lovely reception rooms, a welcoming entrance hall featuring an elegant staircase, a study/home office and an excellent kitchen/breakfast room. In addition there is a utility room and a boiler room/store. Upstairs there are three double bedrooms, an en-suite bathroom to the main bedroom and a family bathroom.
The apartment has on the ground floor a kitchen and bathroom with internal staircase leading to a large studio/sitting room/bedroom with en-suite shower room.
The house is set within a generously proportioned plot of around half an acre of exquisitely laid out gardens, which, particularly in the Spring, are full of colour. There is a good sized garage/workshop, a storage outbuilding and ample off-road parking.
