Full description

This property will delight passionate and keen gardeners.  Set in the stunning Cumbrian countryside, on the threshold of the Lake District National Park, it commands views over the Duddon Estuary, across to the Furness Fells and hills of Kirkby.  The property spans about 0.7 acres of lovingly maintained garden and woodland areas, that is divided into sections, each with a distinctive theme to explore as you meander through.  There is also ample opportunity for a buyer to add their own creative flair to the marvellous grounds. The location on the outskirts of The Hill village is rural and peaceful, allowing for numerous countryside pursuits, including walking, riding, cycling, wildlife watching and water sports on Lakes Coniston (c.13 miles) and Windermere (c.23 miles) to name a few.  It is also within easy reach of a good range of amenities.  The village hall hosts events throughout the year and creates a sense of community.  The coastal town of Millom (c.2.4 miles) benefits from a supermarket, doctor surgery, chemist, petrol station and selection of high street shops.   Further afield the towns of Barrow-in-Furness (c.22 miles) and Kendal (c.37 miles) offer a wider range of services.  Trains from Green Road station (c.2 miles) and Millom run regularly to both,  as well as to Preston and Carlisle.   Junction 36 of the M6 is less than 40 miles distant (c.55 minutes' drive) and is the main route connecting the north to the south of England. The barn is situated within the catchment area of several primary and secondary schools that are rated ‘good’ by Ofsted.  There are also independent schools within easy reach, including Oversands School and Windermere School.  The stone built barn conversion is conveniently situated within the grounds with the accommodation being flipped to make the most of the stunning easterly views.  The ground floor comprises a hallway, two double bedrooms with built-in storage, a family bathroom, utility room and a garage, which has the potential to be converted into further living space.  The stairs are handmade and lead up to a large open plan reception room and kitchen with large beams and two sets of French doors, both of which open onto opposite ends of a wrap-around balcony.  The master bedroom with en-suite shower room is also on this floor.  Externally there is parking for multiple vehicles and a detached stone garage/workshop which has many possibilities for alternative use.
