A sensitive and tasteful re-development of an historic former farm in Old Wennington - with stone mullion windows and exposed stonework - Beckside combines period charm with modern comforts. In brief, the ground floor accommodation comprises: large kitchen/diner with 4 oven electric Aga; family dining room; stunning lounge with vaulted ceiling and feature fireplace housing log burning stove; good-sized living room; superb triple aspect sitting room with French doors to the south facing sun terrace; hall; utility room and ground floor cloakroom.
On the first floor, the landing provides access to 4 double bedrooms and the house bathroom. Bedroom 1 is a good-sized master bedroom with en-suite and bedroom 4 is currently used as a home office. Extended by the current owners, stairs rise from the sitting room to an independent first floor double bedroom and en-suite - ideal for guests or inter-generational living.
Outside, the property enjoys an elevated position with views across open country. There's a superb patio terrace to the front aspect - ideal for entertaining outside - with feature fountain, low level lighting and 13 amp points, with steps down to an area of lawn with fruit trees. To the side aspect, there is a further patio seating area with views over the paddock. Beckside has ample off-road parking with a double garage and gravel drive at the rear. A 2 acre paddock can be accessed from the drive, comprising pasture and a small copse. Currently sheep-grazed, the paddock is suitable for horses, with space for stabling, if required.
Peacefully located in rolling countryside, Beckside is reached via pleasant, winding country lanes. There's a network of footpaths and green lanes to explore from the property's doorstep. Located in Lancashire, the county boundary with North Yorkshire is just a few steps up the lane. The Yorkshire Dales, Lake District, Forest of Bowland and Morecambe Bay are all within easy reach, for great days out in stunning scenery.
Nearby market towns include Kirkby Lonsdale and Bentham. Lancaster and the M6 can be reached in around 30 minutes by car. Primary schools are available in Melling, Bentham, Hornby and Leck. Excellent secondary education is available at QES, Kirkby Lonsdale.
