Full description:DIRECTIONS Heading towards Lindale from the A590 leave the Meathop roundabout signposted for Lindale and Grange before taking the next left hand turn for Meathop. Follow this road along before finding a fork in the road and continue to the left. Proceed along this road to the end where you are greeted by a development of barn conversions. Turn right into the courtyard alongside the single-storey garages and Limegarth Barn is situated immediately in front of you.

LOCATION A simply stunning rural location in this private and peaceful area of the Lake District National Park. This idyllic setting boasts stunning open aspect views to the rear and a peaceful and private community feel throughout the Sunnyside farm barn conversion development. Convenient access links lead to nearby villages including Lindale and Grange over Sands for a wide range of local amenities whilst the A590 provides transport links across the South Lakes Peninsula and towards Kendal and the M6 motorway.

DESCRIPTION Rarely does a stunning and spacious four double bedroom executive property become available in such a picturesque and peaceful location. Limegarth Barn has been cleverly and sympathetically developed to retain several original features including an attractive stone faced finish complemented by modern nuances throughout.

A prime location nestled to the head of the development allows the full potential of the open aspect panoramas across farmland and extending to Arnside Knot to be enjoyed by the property through all the rear facing accommodation.

Limegarth Barn sits in a well proportioned plot with off-road parking for two vehicles, low maintenance front and side gardens and an enclosed lawn garden with sunken patio seating and raised corner seating space contained within a traditional dry stone wall allowing further outlooks over adjacent farmland.

The joys of this property are apparent upon entering the hallway with feature wooden detailed surround to the doorways and an original lintel within a display space situated next to a wooden staircase leading to an open galleried landing and vaulted ceiling with feature wooden beams and supports. The hall has a porcerlain tiled floor and double glazed windows onto the front garden whilst providing further access to a ground floor WC and the spacious and versatile living accommodation.

The main family room provides a full depth and spacious living area with front and rear facing windows allowing outlooks to the surrounding scenery whilst the room centres around an attractive stone flanked recessed fireplace with cast iron multi fuel styled fireplace situated on a raised stone hearth.

The lounge flows seamlessly into a second reception room currently used as a formal dining space with potential for a sitting room or snug.

The third reception space could be used as a home office, study or studio as well as a games room or ground floor double bedroom and is situated adjacent to the farmhouse style fitted kitchen with work surfaces and fitted storage units to three sides incorporating a fitted extractor hood over space for a range cooker and providing a stainless steel one and a half Franke sink and drainer with traditionally styled mixer tap situated beneath a double glazed window to the rear.

The kitchen provides a central black granite work surface with further storage space and wine rack whilst the porcerlain tiled floor extends to a dining area and French doors opening onto the rear garden.

The ground floor is completed by a well proportioned utility room with two separate single surfaces, one and a half sink and drainer and further recess space for a fridge, freezer and washing machine.

Central to the first floor accommodation is the spacious galleried landing with feature wooden rafters, joists and purlins situated to the pitched ceiling with further double glazed windows allowing outlooks to the courtyard and distant views to Lakeland fells.

The first floor features four well proportioned double bedrooms with the master benefiting from further feature beams and access to a three-piece en suite shower room and a separate walk-in wardrobe. There is also a built-in window seat to the rear allowing further views to fields and beyond.

The remaining three bedrooms provide double proportions with two boasting rear facing aspects and the second and third bedrooms also benefiting from high level pitched ceilings with feature wooden beams.

The bedroom accommodation shares access to a light and airy four piece family bathroom with low-level bath and central mixer tap with shower hose, shower cubicle with wall mounted mixer shower, WC and pedestal wash hand basin all illuminated by a Velux window.

All in all a beautifully presented property which would appeal to a range of purchasers including family buyers and those looking for a second/holiday home in a picturesque rural location.
