AN IMPRESSIVE home with 3,900 square feet of living space in the heart of the Lake District is now on the market.

You can first catch a glimpse of Birch Howe, in Windermere, when driving through the automated gates, set within Lakeland stone pillars.

The sweeping driveway offers private parking for up to seven vehicles and the mature planting and tall majestic trees line the drive up to the house.

After walking through the front door of the property you’ll head along a spacious and light hallway with a staircase leading downstairs to the bedrooms and a cinema room.

The modern hallway also leads through to the upper living areas, such as the sitting room which is bathed in natural light thanks to dual aspect windows.

Leading from the day room is a newly refurbished utility room with plenty of drying space and storage for a large family without becoming cluttered.

A back door leads out onto a patio area at the back of the house where you can find easy access to a garden shed with a wooden framed greenhouse attached.

This is an ideal space for those who enjoy growing their own produce.

Back inside the house you will find the kitchen diner which features monochromatic shades of cream and black.

In the middle of the kitchen is a large island topped in black granite – the perfect space to serve meals and entertain guests.

The gas fired, glossy black, three oven Aga stove provides a beautiful warmth and a gorgeous centrepiece to the room.

The Kitchen extends into the fabulous Dining area which could comfortably seat an entire family for Christmas or just an intimate dinner for two.

Sliding patio doors invite you to step outside onto the magnificent decked terrace with glass balustrade. The space gives breath-taking views to the garden and invites the outdoors inside on a summer day.

For those working from home, there is a private office space with patio doors to the opposite decked area with lovely views of the garden.

From the Kitchen you will find the spacious family room with a sloped ceiling and large sliding patio doors which leads out onto the decked terrace.

This five double-bedroomed home also features two bathrooms.

The showstopper of the home is the ‘premier suite’ – a significantly vast bedroom with an ensuite featuring a custom built sauna.

The current owners have also applied for planning permission to add a garage and gym, which would increase internal space by 1,100 square feet if approved.

This house is currently on the market for £1,250,000.
