LOCATION Gleaston is a small rural village that is located between the larger towns of Barrow in Furness, Dalton in Furness and Ulverston. Each of these neighbouring towns is only a 10 to 15 minute drive away providing access to shops including superstores, schools and recreational and entertainment facilities with The Forum in Barrow and The Coronation Hall in Ulverston.
DESCRIPTION This impressive looking, double fronted property offers superbly proportioned accommodation that now extends over three floors, having benefitted from a full loft conversion to add a fourth bedroom with its own en-suite bathroom.
The central hallway leads to the two main reception areas and also into the kitchen. The main lounge runs the full depth of the property with a large multi-pane window to the front and doors to the rear opening into the garden. This room is full of character with the imposing sandstone fireplace with carved crown and floral detailing and the name depicting Rose and Crown and the date 1895. The second reception room offers a cosier family room with stripped floorboards and a central fireplace which houses a solid fuel stove within.
The kitchen is a dual purpose room with plenty of space for a breakfast table to the centre of the room. The fitted units have a limed oak style finish to the cabinets, which include glazed display units and drawer units. There is space to accommodate a range style cooker where there is a concealed cooker hood above, a one and a half drainer sink with space beneath for a dishwasher and also for a fridge. This room also has a large feature fireplace with a solid fuel fire set within. The room benefits from added storage provided by the large under stair cupboard which has light and power and space for an upright fridge/freezer.
The dining room is situated within the large room alongside the kitchen and has a vaulted ceiling, exposed stonework to the walls and a large wall of windows that overlooks the driveway and garden.
There is stepped access into the laundry space where there are fitted units with a single drainer sink fitted within the work surface. This is a bright and airy room with high-level windows in addition to the glazed patio doors that open onto the driveway. There is access from here into the ground floor WC which is fitted with a traditional two-piece suite.
The first floor landing has a second staircase ascending up to the converted loft and there are also doors leading to the first three double bedrooms, and also into the rather stunning family bathroom.
The bathroom has a roll top bath taking centre stage in the room, along with a fully glazed shower enclosure with a dual head shower fitting within, a corner WC and pedestal wash basin. The attractively presented room has faux panel detailing to the wall with a tiled finish to the floor. There is a large fitted cupboard that houses the hot water cylinder and also offers plenty of room for towels and linen etc.
The slightly larger of the three double bedrooms is located to the rear of the property, offering a fitted double cupboard and a lovely view onto the rear garden. The two remaining bedrooms on this floor are both almost identical in size with one having a built-in storage cupboard beneath the staircase which goes to the loft bedroom, and also access into an en-suite shower room which is smartly presented and fitted with a three-piece suite that includes a shower cubicle with a dual head shower fitting, a wash basin with cupboard storage beneath and also a WC.
The second floor landing has a low-level access door into the residual loft space and a further expanse of built-in cupboards to the eaves that face the front of the property. There is a skylight overhead providing natural light into the stairwell plus a door which leads into the fourth double bedroom which has a vaulted ceiling throughout, skylights to the front and rear elevations and a pleasant outlook to the front over the rooftops of the village to the fields that surround.
The en-suite bathroom has a full three-piece suite with a WC positioned alongside the wash hand basin and also the bath that has a shower attachment to the taps. There is a large overhead roof light to the sloping ceiling plus a low-level access panel into the loft space.
Externally, there is gated access onto a private brick-set driveway that runs alongside the house leading to the rear garden, where there is a large flagged patio with feature pond and steps ascending up to the lawn where there are fruit trees and bushes.
