This beautifully converted barn offers a stunning blend of old and new in a peaceful hamlet location.
Located in the tiny rural hamlet of Guardhouse, the property sits in the Glenderaterra valley with dramatic scenery to both sides. Set out on foot to follow the number of easy and challenging walking routes that dissect this stunning area. The village of Threlkeld is within easy reach and is home to two popular pubs serving local dishes and ales. A short drive will bring you to Keswick, a bustling market town with excellent shops, museums, a theatre, cinema and host of restaurants and cafes.
From the small entrance hall, stairs lead up to the open-plan living area. With huge exposed beams, a pitched roof, stone walls and magnificent views, this is a beautifully designed space. At one end, a contemporary kitchen area features oak floorboards, modern units, ample work space and a large dining table. Two leather armchairs sit in a tall oriel window, which offers spectacular views of Blencathra’s peak. The sitting room area beyond is cosy and inviting with comfortable sofas, a large wood burner and glass picture windows opening onto a raised deck overlooking the valley. Downstairs are three stylish bedrooms with slate floors, stone walls, exposed ceiling beams and tasteful furniture and soft furnishings. The king-size master benefits from an en-suite shower room, while the twin bedroom and super-king-size share the main bathroom with shower over bath.
Outside, a sunny decked terrace with table and chairs overlooks a pretty garden of lawn, trees and shrubs below.
