Built in 1878, 15 Sedbergh Road is a truly stunning Victorian property which has been sympathetically restored and improved by the current vendors, retaining many original features being brought back to life and enhanced with tasteful additions and decoration to create a wonderful detached family home. Set in approximately one third of an acre, the property enjoys a gently raised and set back private position, whilst being in an extremely convenient location only a short walk to the market town
of Kendal. Located just East of Kendal town centre, also known as the Southern gateway to The Lake District, Kendal is a popular market town that enjoys the best of both worlds; that of a bustling centre with a thriving high street yet surrounded by rolling countryside. The property is ideally placed to take advantage of the many local amenities and facilities including independent shops, bistros and restaurants, museums, arts centre, and leisure centre. Kendal Castle is a short walk away. Essential services including doctors, dentists, hospital and supermarkets are all close by. Good schooling can be found at primary and secondary levels within the area. Oxenholme train station, on the West Coast mainline, with frequent direct services to London, Manchester and north to Carlisle and Scotland is a short drive from the property. Access to the A6, A684 and A591 are all within a 5 minute drive; and M6 access is approximately 15 minutes away.
Upon entering, you are immediately greeted with natural light from the tall and elegant windows, in keeping throughout the property. The impressive Gothic arched doorway sets the tone with double entrance doors leading into a welcoming hallway. Easily the heart of the home, the kitchen is the perfect space for entertaining and adjoins by way of an arch the stunning and sophisticated open plan dining room which is an extremely bright and welcoming space. The kitchen is fitted with classically and sympathetically styled units and Dekton Aura work surfaces; a Belfast sink with dual taps, one providing filtered hot and cold water; a range-style cooker with twin ovens, grill and gas hob; extractor hood, microwave oven, steam oven, fridge, freezer and dishwasher.
The study is the perfect home office, tucked away peacefully to the rear of the property; a bright and practical area with tall windows overlooking the gardens; this room in turn leads into the utility room which has plumbing in place for a washing machine and a modern, pressurised, hot water storage cylinder and external access out into the garden. The rear access at 15 Sedbergh Road is ideally located just off the drive, perfect for bringing in the shopping! Conveniently positioned, a large downstairs bathroom, traditionally styled in white fits the period style of the house, with an enamelled, cast-iron slipper bath, a pedestal wash basin, shower cubicle and toilet. Positioned to the front, the sitting room is extremely elegant, boasting a dual aspect with tall windows, and a brushed steel original fireplace and restored original sash windows. In addition to the extensive accommodation, there is a basement level which extends under the property, split into two spacious store rooms, one of which is currently utilised as a games room but has the potential and scope for further development if required. The original decorative 'dog leg' staircase leads up from the entrance lobby to a tall mullioned window which floods the galleried landing area with natural light before arriving at the first floor. In total, this unique family home offers four generously sized double bedrooms all with individual outlooks over the front and rear gardens and an exquisitely finished contemporary house bathroom, comprising walk in double shower cubicle tiled with mosaic glass, double wash hand basins, and WC.
Outside The gardens and grounds are ideal for those who like to enjoy the peace and tranquillity of the great outdoors whilst not having to compromise on easy access to the local amenities. The front garden is screened by a variety of trees, including some interesting specimens and a wide, gated entrance to the side leads to a private driveway with ample room for several cars in front of the detached garage with double doors. The gardens provide a wealth of areas for both practical use and family enjoyment whilst being low maintenance and manageable. There is the additional benefit of an outbuilding to the rear with a WC and wash hand basin and a log store.
