South View is a stunning home which has been extended and comprehensively upgraded to an excellent standard throughout. The fabulous living accommodation has a clear and distinct separation between the traditional cottage exterior and contemporary fittings, extensions and landscaping within the beautiful and private gardens.
Full description:DIRECTIONS Approaching Cartmel from Grange over Sands, drive along Haggs Lane until you reach the junction opposite The Pig and Whistle pub. Turn right here and then take the first turning on the left into The Causeway. The property is on the right-hand side.
LOCATION South View is situated a couple of minutes' walk out of the village square, boasting beautiful landscaped gardens and enjoying a lovely view to the open field opposite. This historic Lakeland village is home to the 12th Century Priory, two Michelin star restaurants, boutique-style shops and traditional pubs, cafes and a bistro. The village is also home to its own famous race course, a primary school, secondary school, the famous Sticky Toffee Pudding Shop amongst other amenities, including a doctor's surgery, etc.
DESCRIPTION This traditional stone-built cottage has been comprehensively upgraded, extended and greatly improved to a level that clearly sets it apart from others.
The enclosed porch leads you into a warm and welcoming hallway with an open staircase and doors leading into the kitchen and lounge. The hallway and kitchen have solid oak flooring throughout.
The lounge is a naturally light and airy room that has lovely two-tone coloured décor which we consider to be very much on trend at the moment. There is a Gazco cottage-style stove which is set within the chimney breast, creating a focal point and also a secondary heating option within this space. There is a bay window which provides a lovely view onto the field opposite.
The kitchen is stylish and contemporary and offers a large expanse of work surfacing in Cliveden Quartz Stone with an under-mounted white Franke Kubus Fragranite one and a half bowl sink and an integrated Miele dishwasher below. There is also a Lacanche professional range cooker with 6 hob burners and a dual oven alongside with a concealed cooker hood above with integrated lighting. In addition, there is an inset Samsung American-style fridge/freezer with an ice maker and water dispenser.
There are glazed doors accessing the garden room which has wraparound glazing and features an exposed stone wall, which provides a hint to the property's age and character.
From the garden room, double doors open into the lower part of the garden where there is access across the patio to an external utility room, where there is power, light and water, a ceramic Belfast-style sink, plumbing for a washing machine and space for a tumble dryer.
The ground floor accommodation is completed with the guest bedroom/family room and en-suite facility, which is accessed through a glazed link from the kitchen. It has a fully glazed rear elevation with sliding doors accessing the garden. This versatile space could be used as an office which would be perfect for anybody who works from home. It would also be suitable as a home gym, family room or guest bedroom. There is a full en-suite shower room with a WC, wash hand basin and a glazed shower enclosure alongside.
The staircase takes you up to the landing area where there are doors leading into the remaining three bedrooms and family bathroom.
The two double bedrooms have fitted wardrobe furniture and feature fireplaces. The larger bedroom at the front of the property enjoys the best of the views across to the field opposite.
Finally, the family bathroom provides a four piece suite including a large wall-mounted wash basin and surface unit with integrated storage drawers beneath and a mirror behind, with integrated vanity lighting. There is also a radius panelled bath, WC, large glazed shower and a heated towel rail. The room is fully tiled and also has underfloor heating to provide additional comfort.
Externally, the property has beautifully landscaped gardens to the rear with a patio adjacent to the house and steps ascending up to the main garden where there is a cobble-set footpath and two large sun terraces, which offer a perfect space for al fresco dining or simply to enjoy the sunshine. The area is complemented by carefully positioned feature garden lighting.
