Foulstone Cottage forms part of a grade 2 listed home in the small hamlet of Lupton which is only five minutes from the historic town of Kirkby Lonsdale with it's coffee shops, restaurants and quaint shops and markets. Kirkby also boasts good sized Booths supermarket as well so you have everything you need virtually on your doorstep. Turn right out of the driveway and you are only five minutes from the M6 motorway, making this a perfect location if you travel to work. The cottage itself is set back from the road with a small number of other homes in this most peaceful of locations and it also offer ample parking as well. Ask us where it is as you'll not find it even though it's just off the main road!
The ground floor living spaces.
So lets go inside this rather quirky cottage and reveal the character. Through the doorway, you are into a really good sized hallway with stripped wooden floorboards and an attractive exposed stone wall. There is ample room for coats, shoes, etc; and there is a central heating radiator. From this area you step down into the kitchen and to the stairs to the first floor.
The Kitchen area measures approximately 15"4" x 7"5" and has been recently re-fitted with a range of bright modern white base and wall units and marble effect work tops with an inset 1.1/2 ceramic bowl and drainer. There are also integrated appliances including the oven and hob, extractor hood, fridge, freezer and dish washer. A really well fitted modern kitchen with plenty of natural light from the window over looking the rear garden.
The lounge. This is a great room measuring over 22 feet long and nearly 12 feet wide, a lovely family room. Again you have stripped floor boards and an exposed stone wall that really adds to the character and it gets better as there is a wood burning stove as well. There's plenty of room for sofas and chairs as well as a good size dining table and chairs. Plenty of natural light streams through the front and rear windows and extra warmth comes via the two central heating radiators.
First floor accommodation.
An open tread wooden staircase leads to the first floor landing area. To call this area the landing understates the size of it as it really is great space with ample room for a desk, or easy chairs so it lends itself to becoming a study area or even a relaxing reading room. A lovely space with great views over the open countryside and doors leading to all the first floor rooms. Each of the first floor rooms is warmed by a central heating radiator. Bedroon One: Measuring 14'6" x 11'2" this is a good sized double room with far reaching countryside views to the front on the home. Bedroom Two: Measuring 11'0" x 9'8" this is another good size double bedroom with view the countryside at the front of the property. The bathroom is a great size and fitted with a modern three piece suite that comprises a "P" shaped bath with shower above with glass shower screen, the wash basin and w.c. Again warmed via the central heating this room get it's natural light from the rear facing window.
Outside the property.
There is ample parking for this property. both to the front and side. To the rear of the cottage there is a rather large garden area that you have the use of and this is maintained by the landlord. It's a huge garden and a great place for al fresco dining and perfect for the children to play.

This is a lovely two bedroom 17th century country cottage attached to a grade 2 listed home built in 1655 and it's got loads of charm and character that you would expect from an old cottage. As well as having the charm it also comes with a recently fitted kitchen with integrated appliances and a modern bathroom and with shower above the bath. A really lovely home in a quiet location set back from the A65 and only a short drive to both Kirkby Lonsdale and the M6 motorway.
