2 2
Brantholme is exceptionally unique; a most intriguing, gothic inspired residence, which is full of Victorian character and charm located in a most desirable, convenient location close to the centre of Kendal town. Believed to date back to 1890, the property has been owned by the current vendors for the past 13 years and they have since sympathetically modified and meticulously maintained the property to create a most spectacular two bedroom home, which has been finished to an exceptionally high standard which provides a real flavour of the period whilst benefiting from plentiful, modern fixtures and fittings. All the rooms are generously proportioned and enjoy much of the original detail of the building, tall ceilings, mullioned windows and deep skirtings. The accommodation briefly comprises two reception rooms, dining kitchen, two bathrooms and two double bedrooms. Situated at the top of a sweeping drive, Brantholme enjoys a private, elevated position which benefits from far reaching views over the roof tops of Kendal towards the rolling hills and countryside in the distance.

Brantholme is located just east of Kendal town centre, which is 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 only a short stroll away providing ample walks from the doorstep and very popular for exploring with the children or dogs! Essential services including doctors, dentists, hospital and supermarkets are all close by. There is a good choice of state schooling available in the area and the property is also ideally placed for the independent Windermere School and Sedbergh School. 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 approximately 15 minutes away.  

Accommodation A recent and fabulous addition to Brantholme, the entrance porch, which is also home to the boiler, provides a warm and welcoming approach with interesting ecclesiastical features and attractive tiled floor benefitting from underfloor heating. An in keeping front door, constructed of timber has a featured stained glass window and allows light to lead into the open plan kitchen diner. Immediately, the quality, finish and style welcome you into the open plan kitchen and dining area. The heart of the home, this open plan room is flooded with natural light by way of the dual aspect approach and provides ample space for comfortable formal dining furniture. The quality kitchen has a wide range of wall and base units and an array of integrated appliances comprising five oven AGA, fridge freezer, dishwasher, microwave and a double sink. The large island unit is an attractive feature with an expansive granite worktop, which has power and breakfast bar area including a range of integrated cupboards and drawers. Off the kitchen is a rear hallway which has a conveniently placed WC and separate utility room, comprising wall and base units with plumbing in place for a washing machine and tumble dryer, with the additional benefit of an external door. The cellar, which is extremely warm and dry, has carpeted stairs which lead down into a fabulous storage area, currently used for hanging and storing additional clothes and shoes. The garden room is accessed off the kitchen/diner and was renovated around 18 months ago by the vendors; an extremely cosy room with an attractive log burner and quirky American bi folding sliding doors which provide access onto the decking area and into the garden, making this the perfect versatile room to enjoy all year round. The main hallway is rather grand and has attractive amtico flooring and original panelling to the grand staircase. The snug is an extraordinarily quirky shape, boasting so much charm with arch features and windows, most certainly an intimate room to enjoy in the winter months.

The first floor is accessed by way of the grand staircase which is flooded with natural light through the original stained glass sash window positioned on the landing. The split level landing area provides access to the first bedroom which is a spacious double room, with a sash window which enjoys an attractive outlook over Kendal and towards the rolling hills beyond. Practically, there is a laundry cupboard on the split landing which has light and shelving.
