A brief description
A Jewell in the crown of Lunesdale Court, as you enter this property you certainly get that ''wow'' feeling. The main entrance opens into the hallway where you will find a downstairs wc with period features. The impressive open staircase has access to both receptions. The main living room is a wonderful size with a dual aspect to the front and side of the home. You will see there is a formal dining room to entertain your family and friends with access to the outside space and the kitchen which also has further space to dine. There is also a utility room to the far end of the ground floor just off the kitchen.
Up to the first floor via the original stone staircase you will discover three double bedrooms with the master offering its very own en-suite shower room and there is also the main family bathroom. Once you are up to the top level you will find there are two further double bedrooms along with a handy wc for your guests to use. Outside there are well maintained lawned gardens, a private paved courtyard and of course the extensive communal garden areas which you can use. You also have allocated parking bays for up to five cars and a generously sized electrically operated garage opposite the home.
The property has a gas central heating system, original sash style windows in the majority of the rooms and is offered for sale with no chain. Views can be enjoyed over open countryside and towards Ingleborough fells and across the Lune Valley.
Ground floor rooms
As you step inside this home from its main entrance you will immediately feel at home. The tasteful decoration which greets you is a key feature throughout the home. There is a a ground floor wc on your left hand side as you enter. The staircase is open to the hallway and will lead you up to the first floor accommodation. Access from the hallway also leads you into both the lounge and the separate dining room.
The main living room is a fantastic sized space where all the family can come togther and relax at the end of the day. This room has a real bright and airy feel thanks to the high ceilings and the two double sash windows which offer a dual aspect over the front and side of the home. The lounge also has a been decorated in a soft and neutral colour scheme which buyers will appreciate.
The formal dining room has been tastefully designed with neutral decoration and again offers the classic Victorian high ceilings to create that sense of space. To the centre of the room there is a feature open fireplace which will be a lovely focal point when you have your family and friends over and are entertaining. A double sash window looks out over the front of the home and there is also a glazed door which provides access out to your very own enclosed courtyard area.
Just off the dining room is where you will find the well proportioned kitchen which also allows you space for a generous sized table to dine if you so wish. The kitchen has granite work tops throughout and a great range of built in storage and there is ample work space for those who love to cook. There are a range of built in appliances including the fridge/freezer, a dishwasher and a range style cooker with a concealed extractor fan above. You will also discover a separate utility room at the end of the kitchen where you will see there is extra storage, plumbing for a washing machine, the boiler for the home and access to the outside area.
First floor level
Once you are up to the first floor landing you will find that the main bedroom is just off to your left hand side. The landing also has access to the rest of the rooms on this level, a large feature window providing a pleasing aspect and a further flight of stairs up to the top floor.
Buyers will be delighted with the space which the master bedroom offers. This spacious double room actually runs the full width of the home and enjoys a dual aspect looking out over the front and rear elevations. There is ample space for all the expected furniture and more and there is also access to your very own en-suite facility. The en-suite has been fitted with a three piece shower suite which has been fully tiled with a decorative border.
Both the second and third bedrooms on this level are well proportioned double rooms which have been decorated in a soft and neutral colour scheme. One of the rooms offers a dual aspect to the front and side of the home towards Ingleborough and open countryside whilst the other looks out over the main entrance and to the open fields beyond. There is also the main family bathroom which has been fully tiled and offers you a contemporary three piece suite in white with a shower above the bath to give you the best of both worlds.
Second floor accommodation
Finally you will find yourself up on the top floor which the owners converted in 2016 to the highest of building regulations. This space now offers two double bedrooms which both offer three Velux style windows apiece which provides you with the best views in the home towards the fells of Ingleborough and beyond. Both rooms have a real modern and crisp feel to them and we feel that they would make ideal rooms for your guests or younger family members.
Between the two double bedrooms the owners have also cleverly fitted in a handy wc with its own hand wash basin and velux window.
As you enter Lunesdale Court onto the sweeping driveway you will find the house is the furthest to your left hand side straight ahead of you. It has a real Stately Home sort of feel thanks to this grand entrance. There is a generous sized lanwed area which the family have enjoyed over the years thanks to its wonderful views. To the rear of the property there is a private courtyard style area with walled boundaries offering privacy and a superb south facing suntrap. The owners have recently had an Indian flagstone patio laid so you can now sit out and enjoy the summer sunshine.
This home offers parking for five vehicles with four spaces to the front and a further space to the side. On top of these parking bays you also have your own garage which is very spacious measuring approximately 10' x 24' and with a head height of 10'.
