The Property

Sanderson House is situated on a generous plot with fabulous views towards both the coast and Lake District National Park. The original property is believed to date back to the early 1600’s and was formerly made up of four cottages before becoming one house in around 1988. In more recent times, the house has undergone extensive renovation, sympathetically combining a host of original features with the requirements of modern day living. Limestone and oak flooring, exposed beams, under floor heating throughout and high quality fixtures and fittings are all enhanced by the picturesque setting and far reaching views.

The kitchen/breakfast room is the heart of the home, leading off the entrance hall, with original range from locally known J Stout & Sons adding character to the room and acting as a focal point for the generous dining area. The kitchen offers a range of units with quartz work surfaces and a central island with complementary oak work top. A selection of integral appliances include a dishwasher, fridge, sink unit and range-style electric cooker. A reception room is located off the main entrance hall and lends itself to a variety of uses including a study, snug or fourth bedroom. A downstairs shower room is situated between the entrance hall and the reception room comprising a walk in shower, wash hand basin and WC. An office/store room sits adjacent to the kitchen whilst a utility room sits to the back of the house with plumbing for a washing machine, space for a tumble dryer, boot room and storage cupboard.

A stunning sitting room is located to the first floor with spectacular dual aspect to the coast and the Lake District National Park. There are three double bedrooms to the first floor, one with an en-suite shower room comprising a shower cubicle, wash hand basin and WC. A family bathroom of generous proportions provides a bath, wash hand basin and WC.


A gravelled parking area surrounds the property on three sides with ample space for several vehicles. An outside store is attached to the property whilst a double garage with power and lighting connected sits on one corner of the plot.

The gardens are truly delightful, laid mainly to lawn with the colourful beds and borders interspersed throughout the grounds. A charming summer house and decked area sits in a secluded corner of the garden giving an ideal spot for al-fresco dining and entertaining.
