The charm of The Gowans begins at the entrance via sandstone paving to the front garden leading to a glazed entrance with Victorian tiling, and a stunning oak staircase. The ground floor accommodation has been carefully upgraded to retain character yet provides the benefits of modern day living. The breakfast kitchen is positioned at the rear of the property and enjoys a dual aspect and an outlook towards Winder Fell. A locally crafted kitchen with quartz worktops provides ample storage, set around a new 13-amp electric model Aga. The kitchen has a practical access door which leads to the rear garden. There is plenty of space for a dining table within the kitchen making this an ideal family and sociable room. Off the kitchen is a beautiful dining room with a large bay window to the front, with a stunning view towards the Howgills. The living room is a peaceful room positioned at the rear of the property looking out towards Winder Fell.

The first floor provides four generous bedrooms, each having been upgraded to create their own style and identity. The front two bedrooms offer the scope and opportunity to create a principal suite should anyone wish. The family bathroom is a well appointed space, with a large shower, low level WC and wash hand basin and an egg bath, finished with an engineered oak floor.

The second floor provides additional accommodation which is well suited to a range of uses. Currently used as a studio and workspace this floor is ideal for those looking to work from home, with older family or ideal as a guest area with a bedroom area on one side with excellent eaves storage. This level has a newly fitted bathroom with bath, framed within feature beams, WC and basin.

Externally the property benefits from not one but two garden spaces. The main garden sits at the rear of the property and is made up of a lawned garden space with mature planting and borders, with a black sandstone flagged path and patio area. The garden is tiered down towards the garage at the rear. The garage is accessed from the rear of the property and gives excellent storage with a parking space in front. There is further on-street parking available at the front of the property, or the area behind the garage could be re-configured to provide additional parking. Opposite the property is a separate garden space, which provides an ideal vegetable garden with raised beds, or further land encompassed within a picket fence and hedging. This space is ideal for those looking to be self sufficient or would make an ideal play space for children.
