Hutton Park House, New Hutton, Kendal, LA8 0AY
Hutton Park House offers the perfect detached family home set within nearly 2 acres of private grounds in the peaceful yet conveniently located village of New Hutton. A beautiful double fronted former farmhouse, The Drumlins of the Howgill Range form the back drop to this charming property, further adding to the serenity of the newly landscaped gardens. The property has undergone a recent renovation that marries together seamlessly with the characterful features. It now offers a spacious and flexible family home that offers traditional countryside aesthetics and modern connotations such as an integrated surround system, B4RN hyper-fast internet connectivity and underfloor heating to the kitchen and bathrooms and gym. There are a choice of three reception rooms, a lovely kitchen and versatile office space above the garage benefiting from external access. To the first floor of the main house there is a family bathroom and a total of four double bedrooms which includes the beautifully appointed master bedroom with a new contemporary ensuite. The integral double garage has been cleverly converted by Panararmer to incorporate a utility space, gym and separate WC that still affords half the garage space for storage and a vehicle. The beautiful landscaped gardens surround the property offering a peaceful haven that all the family can enjoy. It offers a multitude of picturesque areas from the rear decking to the front lawn abundant with vibrant flowers and the idyllic banks along the stream that washes the garden with a serene sound of gentle running water.

Passing over the idyllic bridge over the St Sunday Beck, the private drive of Hutton Park House leads up to this pretty double fronted home. Along the side of the property, a new parking area has been created that affords ample gravelled parking that benefits from automatic sensory lighting and provides access to the detached garage. A new, more practical entrance has been created to the side of the property, accessed via stone flagged steps leading up from the drive. The original entrance is also still in place at the front of the property, with a pedestrian gate set under a garden arbour opening to lead along the garden path, framed to either side with the manicured lawn and vibrant flower borders.

Along with this, there is also a fantastic home gym and separate WC, all created by Panararmer of Kendal. Finally to this side of the property there is also the first floor home office that would also make for a fifth bedroom with spacious double proportions. There is the benefit of external access via French doors that open on to the decking area at the rear and fitted storage.

There is ample space in here for a large dining table as well as a reception area that creates an open space ideal for both family life and entertaining.

The floors in here are finished with rich wooden parquet in keeping with the period aesthetics along with picture rail detailing, deep window sills and another of the newly installed Heta log burners set within a brick surround.
