Beech House is an attractive sandstone property that was formerly part of the old vicarage in the hamlet of Winton.

It has great kerb appeal with a cottage garden, cobbled courtyard, range of traditional sandstone barns and a small paddock while its interior blends period details with modern touches.

This combination results in a interesting proposition for a family looking for a country property with something a little special.

Beech House is located just outside the northern boundary of the Lake District National Park, ideal for enjoying the peace and quiet of a delightful rural area.

Walk inside and you’ll discover a home that has been improved over recent years and that is now a light and airy space with modern additions such as double glazing to traditional sash windows.

It has a fantastic and extremely spacious open-plan sitting and dining room at the front of the house with tiled floor, multi-fuel stove and three windows through which sunshine floods in.

The room is open to the kitchen which has modern units with an electric oven, ceramic hob and space for white goods.

To the back of the house is the hallway which leads to a cloakroom, study or fourth double bedroom and the original staircase leading to the first floor.

Upstairs, the accommodation has been configured so that each of the three double bedrooms is similar in having a pleasant view although they differ in that the master has its original feature fireplace.

All the bedrooms are served by a stylish modern family bathroom.

Outside, Beech House is accessed via a five-bar gate that opens into the cobbled courtyard where there is parking for several vehicles.

A pretty cottage garden, with an apple tree and elderberry bushes, has sunny areas in which to sit and enjoy attractive views of open countryside.

Meanwhile, traditional sandstone barns with double-glazed windows, electricity and water are ideal for storage as well as offering conversion possibilities.

Behind these barns is a sandstone shed which may also have potential for a variety of uses and an enclosed paddock, which extends to around one-third of an acre, is ideal for a pony or chickens.
