Description What a lovely property! Charming, quirky, completely unique and brimming with history! Starting life in the late 1800’s as a General Store and home it has been a B & B more recently and a sweet shop right up until the 1960’s. This quirky property has been owned, much loved and only lightly used as a second home by the current couple since 1978 and boasts an unusual, yet versatile layout.

Fully double glazed with gas central heating, this property also retains some wonderful historical features such as original slate flagged floors, deep set cottage style windows with window seats, beams, some latch doors and evidence where there has been ceiling hooks where stock was hung over the years.

There is a pretty, low maintenance, gravel, front forecourt garden through which a path leads to the Entrance Porch. A useful space for muddy boots and wet coats which leads into the Sitting Room which has a deep set window to both the front and rear, an original black/red tiled floor and an open fire in a slate fireplace. Open stairs lead out of this room up to Bedroom 3 which is a good sized double room with exposed beams.

From the Sitting Room a door and a couple of steps lead to the Inner Hall which provides access to a small storage cupboard, the stairs to the First Floor and access to the Kitchen and Lounge/Diner. The Lounge is a most pleasing room of generous proportions having originally been two rooms. Twin deep set windows to the front with window seats and outlook into the village, fire place encasing the electric fire and a wonderful original slate flagged floor. The Kitchen is to the rear with pleasant outlook into the Rear Garden (external door). Furnished with a range of cream wall and base cabinets with ‘NEFF’ electric oven, ceramic hob and stainless steel sink unit.

The stairs lead up to the landing with good sized linen cupboard and exposed floorboards, 2 double bedrooms both with pleasing outlook to the front and a shower room which has a modern, walk-in double shower enclosure.

Outside, to the rear is a very pretty cottage style garden with pathway, area of lawn, and access to the Garage/Workshop, Log Store and outdoor WC. The Garage is larger than the average single garage and does provide more than enough space to create a workshop area. Access from ‘Smithy Hill’ with a sliding wooden door, power and light. The log store, WC with outside tap and Garage all have recently replaced roofs.

The fact that we as owners have had the property for 45 years and have enjoyed the house, garden and surrounding countryside during all that time we think speaks for itself. We have shared the enjoyment with family and close friends, but have never rented it out.

Location Lindale is a popular and pretty village within the Lake District National Park with a popular Public House and well regarded Primary School. Approximately 5 minutes from the small seaside town of Grange over Sands with wider amenities and 20 minutes from the market town of Kendal. The delights and attractions on offer in the heart of the Lakes can be reached in approx 20-30 minutes. Lindale is also conveniently located just 15 minutes from the M6 motorway.

To reach the property from Grange over Sands, take the second exit, past the train station. As you enter Lindale take the second exit up Lindale Hill and ‘Hillside’ is shortly on the right hand side.
