Bridgeway is a spacious modern detached bungalow surrounded by a large garden. The bright, airy rooms are all practical and would suit either large or small groups.
Parking is available for 4 cars on the large tarmac driveway at the front of the bungalow, from here the door to the side of the property leads into a large hallway which continues as a corridor with doors off to all the other rooms. The owners have had a special OS Landranger map centred on Bridgeway printed, framed and hung on the wall; perfect for planning local walks, bike rides and days out.
The first room on the right of the hall is the characterful snug living room. Take a seat on the huge corner sofa which at least 6 people could share very comfortably, set off your chosen playlist on the Bluetooth soundbar speaker and spend a sociable evening in front of the woodburner. The fireplace is built of local sandstone with a huge timber lintel and the vaulted ceiling has exposed timbers and roof lights. The dual aspect windows look over the driveway and garden bringing in plenty of light during the day whilst at night this is a cosy room in which to spend an evening relaxing.
A double door on the left of the snug leads through to the separate tiled kitchen which can also be reached directly from the hall. The kitchen is well equipped with plenty of storage room for supplies and worktop space for cooking them up, gourmet or ready meal can be catered for with ease. Electric oven, grill and hob, dishwasher, microwave, 4 slice toaster and a large fridge freezer provide the mod cons or if you prefer to wash up by hand enjoy the view over the garden and village rooftops through the large window behind the sink as you work.
Another door links the kitchen to the huge dual aspect sitting/dining room. The oak dining table easily seats 8 and enjoys a lovely view through patio doors onto the front garden and wooded view beyond. A large traditional dresser holds all the crockery and cutlery you could need and there is a set of shelves with a good choice of novels, local reference books and games for all ages. At the other end of the room two 3-seat sofas face a smart TV, watch the usual Freeview channels or connect in to your account on Netflix, Prime etc to while away an evening. There is also a useful coffee table for drinks and snacks. This light and spacious room is carpeted and has large windows to front and side looking over the garden, a modern sandstone fireplace runs along one wall.
Back out from the sitting/dining room into the hallway and continuing round anticlockwise at the end of the hall is a twin bedroom. With a relaxing view over the lawn and trees through the large window this is a bright room and storage is provided in a cupboard and drawer unit. This bright room has a lovely wooden floor.
Next door is the largest bedroom with super-king size bed. Another light room sharing a similar view to the next door twin room over the garden - you will have the sound of birdsong to start your day. Loads of storage can be found in a wardrobe with drawers beneath, the dressing table has a mirror above and both bedside tables have lamps. This bright, attractive room has wooden floors with bedside rugs.
Continuing anticlockwise around the hall and starting to work back towards the front door, the next room in another twin; there is a bedside table between the beds plus a wardrobe and drawers. This room is carpeted.
Next is the large family bathroom which has plenty of room for a whole family! A bath and separate shower plus double sink on a vanity unit and shelves still leave ample space on the tiled floor for several children to get dry and dressed at once. Alternatively enjoy the whole lot to yourself with a long hot soak in the bath.
Last but not least back beside the front door is a double bedroom with timber floor and bedside tables, the window looks out onto the driveway and this room, tucked away a little from the other bedrooms, also has an en-suite. The huge fully tiled shower enclosure will be welcome in the morning and there is a heated towel radiator too.
Outside the garden wraps right around the bungalow with large areas of lawn and mature shrubs. The garden backs on to the Settle-Carlisle railway line - railway enthusiasts take note - and to the south west there is a lovely rural view across Salkeld Dykes. The Lakeland fells are visible in the distance to the south, more so in winter when there are no leaves on the trees. The attractive stone building opposite was the village school until the new school was built at the other end of the village. Outside the sitting/dining room at the front of the bungalow a paved patio forms a real sun trap; south facing and sheltered it gets the sun all day and is a lovely spot to sit out, relax with a cuppa or a glass of something and enjoy the views.
Bridgeway offers great accommodation in a beautiful location, don't miss out!
