Full description:DIRECTIONS Driving from Ulverston, continue along the A590 in the direction of Barrow. Shortly after passing cross-a-moor, you will drop down a long gentle hill. Turn left as you reach the bus stop, signposted for Urswick and Stainton. Follow this road along through Great Urswick and then immediately afterwards Little Urswick.

As you leave the village, continue driving for approximately half a mile or so until you arrive at a T-junction. Turn right here by the white painted farmhouse and then turn left immediately afterwards, signposted for Gleaston. As you drop down into Gleaston, you will see Stroma on the left hand side just after the turning for Main Street.

LOCATION Gleaston is a popular rural village situated between the market town of Ulverston and the larger coastal town of Barrow. The village amenities include a village hall, Historic Water Mill with coffee shop/cafe plus a children's play area with playing fields.

Ulverston and Barrow are roughly 15 minutes away in opposite directions providing a wide variety of shopping facilities with supermarkets and superstores, schools, public amenities including Forum 28 and library and cinema's etc.

DESCRIPTION This impressive looking detached property sits within beautiful colourful gardens where there is gated access onto a private double driveway that will comfortably accommodate two vehicles off road.

This property's living accommodation feels spacious and offers plenty of versatility for buyers who want separate clearly defined spaces or a more open plan and free flowing arrangement.

The lounge has a dominant fireplace standing in the centre of the room, finished with an ornate surround with open grate and deep hearth. The room is open to the adjacent dining space which is a more bright and airy room with a view of the gardens and access onto the patio.

The family room with fully glazed, folding doors opening the entire width of the room creates a seamless link with the driveway/gardens. This would be a great family TV room, a play room or maybe an additional guest bedroom with access to the two-piece cloaks/WC that is nicely finished with a high level flush WC and a wash hand basin with a wrought iron style support below.

The impressive conservatory is double-glazed throughout and has double doors opening into the garden.

The kitchen has a great view of the garden whilst also offering lots of fitted units and a gorgeous granite work surface with white Metro style tiling to the walls. There is space to accommodate a range style cooker with a built-in cooker hood above. There is a ceramic Belfast style sink and an integrated dishwasher.

Helping to maintain the easy flow of the accommodation between the lounge and kitchen are the two beautiful part glazed doors with decorative coloured/leaded glass panes.

The first floor accommodation includes four double bedrooms, two of which have access onto a large roof terrace that has a galvanised steel balustrade with external steps leading onto a side access path. The fifth and final bedroom is a single room that may also be suited has a study.

Completing the accommodation are the bathroom and shower facilities, two separate rooms that are fitted with a full three-piece suite. Firstly the bathroom has a freestanding roll top bath, WC and a large wash hand basin with a heated towel rail alongside. The shower room has a walk-in shower enclosure with a multi head shower fitting. There is also a WC and a pedestal wash hand basin with windows to either side.

This is an impressive property that must be viewed to appreciate the space and to get a feel of how nice the lovely sunny gardens are.

The fruit & vegetable plot with greenhouse add a touch of 'The Good Life' and would make an ideal kitchen garden to grow soft fruits, herbs and root vegetables.
