The Property
Plum Creek House is a unique four bedroom property surrounded by truly spectacular sweeping countryside within the Lake District National Park. The thoughtful renovation of an 18th century barn and farm cottage has created an attractive and characterful property with around 5.34 acres of grounds including paddocks, woodland and gardens, set amidst quiet country lanes yet with easy access to regional centres.

The gorgeous sitting room features a soaring double height ceiling to one end providing a light and airy space to relax or entertain. Exposed beams complement the striking wooden mantel above the stone inglenook fireplace. The kitchen/breakfast room has a traditional country style with a light contemporary feel. The grand Rayburn range offers a centrepiece and there is ample space for a table and chairs. A large utility room adds further practicality and convenience. Beyond the kitchen is a spacious yet cosy snug.

A ground floor bedroom with en-suite bathroom offers excellent accessible accommodation. Stairs rise to the first floor where three are three further bedrooms with varying outlooks. The bedrooms are served by the elegantly appointed family bathroom with suite comprising freestanding claw foot bath, separate walk-in shower, wash hand basin and WC.

The private driveway meanders through woodland to the lovely private setting of Plum Creek House. There is ample gravelled parking for a number of vehicles. There are two timber sheds adjacent to the parking area. To one side sit there are expansive lawned gardens and an impressive stone terrace for outdoor entertaining with fabulous panoramic views.

The land includes paddocks with field shelters, and the whole site is sheltered by well-established woodland to three sides. A peaceful beck bubbles through the land. In all, the land extends to around 5.34 acres.
