CUMBRIAN 4-BED CHARMER
Architect-designed four bedroom detached house in prestigious location on the outskirts of Barrow-in-Furness, built and occupied by the current vendors since 1994.
Additional to the main house is a separately accessed basement space. The property is split level and is best described by each level, starting at the top:
Master-suite comprising dressing area with mirrored wardrobe doors, ensuite with W.C, large shower enclosure and wash basin set in to fully fitted furniture. The extra large bedroom itself has two areas (both behind bifold doors) - one is a walk-in wardrobe the other a Jacuzzi Stellaria bath.
Also on this level is Bedroom 4 with a corner fitted wardrobe and spacious enough to accommodate a king-size bed.
Store Room with loft access by fitted ladder. The loft is fully boarded with lighting, electric point and an electric hoist to convey large or heavy items into the loft space.
Bedrooms 2 and 3 are also large rooms both with fitted wardrobes and views to the rear of the property. Between these rooms is the generously sized family bathroom comprising white sanitary ware WC, washbasin and larger than average Idealcast bath over which there is a shower. Fitted furniture, all in white, extends along one wall.
The porch with UPVC double gazed door leads to the hallway. This area is central to the house and is always light, bright and spacious with a Velux window to the front of the house and two at the rear - both operated by control panel or remote control.
The unique feature of this property is the view from the front door - above the bathroom (on the level above) is an atrium and looking straight ahead is the view of the garden. A bay-windowed reception room with a Valor Black Beauty gas fire (currently used as an office) is to the right and to the left is a quirky cloakroom, access to the double garage and the utility room. This houses the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Highflow 550 CDi gas fired boiler installed in 2009. There is plumbing for a washing machine alongside space for a tumble drier. Storage cupboards are above and below the worktop.
The half-flight stairs, under which is further storage, leads to the dining area. To the right is the kitchen separated by a breakfast bar. The flooring of both the dining area and kitchen is in oak. All kitchen units are New World American Oak. There is plumbing for a dishwasher alongside an inset white sink with mixer tap and Brita filter tap - all of which are beneath the kitchen window.
The next exterior wall has space for a gas cooker with an AEG extractor fan above and units either side. The back door is UPVC with the glazed window having an internal blind. Alongside a tall larder unit is space for an under-counter fridge and freezer.
To the left of the dining area is the lounge which can be separated by concealed sliding doors. This room has a feature fireplace with a Valor Logsensation gas fire. The flue of this was originally constructed to permit a "real" fire. Patio doors lead onto an elevated deck which extends along the rear & side of the property and was completely replaced in 2010 with 25 year Timeless Timber and brick pillar supports. The south facing views from the windows of this level are of the whole garden which although large is easily maintained.
Whilst the back door leads to the deck it also has steps to the rear garden which has two terraces. The first terrace has access to the basement space currently used with four separate areas. The basement area was developed in 2001 and has significant potential with all electrical lighting and power points in place but with everything available to create living accommodation.
The single door leads to a room currently used as a garden store. The next space has a cloakroom and currently, a workshop. This leads onto the largest room best described as a "party" space with French doors opening onto the terrace. This terrace has paving and a lawned area. Steps lead down to a second terrace with two ponds and a further large paved area. Both these terraced areas have easily maintained flower beds. The main area of the garden is lawned with mature trees either side and gently sloping to a beck - Dane Ghyll Beck. The other side of this is left natural with trees.
The exterior of the property was created virtually maintenance-free in 2009 with all windows and doors replaced with UPVC double glazing in rosewood externally and white internally. However the all white basement windows and doors contrast with the brickwork at that level.
The front garden has a small lawned area and hree flower beds with the driveway comprised of locally sourced blue limestone Greenscoe gravel capable of off-road parking for four cars. A remote controlled Glideroll double garage door allows access to the garage.
