Sanderson House is thought to date back to the early 1600s and has original details aligned with a modern makeover, resulting in a lovely family home.

Highlights of the property, formerly four cottages before becoming one house in the late 1980s, include underfloor heating throughout and high-quality fixtures and fittings which complement the exposed beams, limestone and oak flooring.

There are fabulous far-reaching views towards the coast and Lake District National Park with a first-floor sitting room perfectly placed to capture them.

The breakfasting kitchen is the undoubted heart of this home with an original range adding character to the dining area while the kitchen has integral appliance, cabinets with quartz work surfaces and a central island with oak worktop.

A reception room, shower room, office, utility and boot room complete the ground floor while upstairs are three double bedrooms, one en-suite, and a family bathroom.

The house has a gravelled parking area on three sides, boosted by a double garage. The lawned gardens have beds and borders.

A summer house and decked area in a secluded corner of the garden provides an ideal spot for al-fresco dining and entertaining.
