Overview| INTRODUCTION In a small development on the fringes of this popular village, this exceptional four bedroom barn conversion has been finished to a high standard throughout. Created by the current owners in 2006 for their own occupation, the layout has been designed to take advantage of the open views to the rear and the character has been retained where possible. The impressive living room has a double height ceiling with mezzanine study above, along with a cosy woodburning stove and the bespoke kitchen has an Aga - the real heart of a home. The master bedroom has an ensuite bathroom with whirlpool bath and the remaining three bedrooms are all doubles. Original oak beams have been paired with modern oak doors and window cills and the property has oil fired central heating, under floor heating and is double glazed throughout. The garden is immaculately maintained with flower borders, lawn and retained attractive drystone walls. The property is a short drive to the Lake District National Park. It is approx.15 minutes drive to the popular Market Town of Ulverston with all its facilities, plus two good high schools with free transport to both. In all, a desirable property in a lovely setting.
Kirkby in Furness is made up of a cluster of small hamlets, each individual and having character of their own. Soutergate is the most southerly with good road links along the A595. The village still retains many facilities including a shop, primary school, pub and a railway station.
