The Green is a charming 3 bedroom detached country home, complete with a detached barn, that was named for its quintessential location on the village green of Priest Hutton. Believed to date back to the 1850s, this once modest farmhouse was extended in the 1960s and substantially updated by the present owners during their 20 years of ownership. Rich in history, the property served as the village store and post office until 1984. Now it stands as a sizeable, generously proportioned 3 bedroom home complete with two reception rooms, a new modern dining kitchen, a beautiful private garden and the fantastic addition of the detached, stone built 3 bay barn, providing an enviable home office, utility room, stores and full height workshop. The Green suits a range of buyers, from families looking for the quieter pace of life that the local countryside offers whilst not compromising on a great choice of local schooling, to working professionals also looking for that countryside respite that still benefits from quick and easy accessibility to the M6 which is located just a five minute drive away. Furthermore, there is also the added benefit of B4RN internet at the property that provides full fibre 5g internet connectivity, great for those looking to work from home.

Priest Hutton is a small village set in a conservation area, surrounded by rolling countryside. However the peaceful location can easily be mistaken for being remote due to the far reaching fields that stretch around you but it is actually just under a 10 minute drive to Carnforth market town. Carnforth offers a plethora of amenities to include a choice of supermarkets, shops, cafes, pubs, doctors, pharmacy and post office. For schools, the neighbouring village of Burton-In-Kendal has a well regarded primary school and the property sits within the catchment for both the Lancaster Boys and Girls Grammar Schools and there is also the highly rated Queen Elizabeth School in Kirkby Lonsdale.

Accommodation Set in front of the village green, this detached property, painted white, is picture perfect. It benefits from being recently painted in Dulux weathershield giving a full 8 year guarantee. The open entrance porch perfectly framing the heavy wooden entrance door is believed to be an original from the property's time serving as a shop and post office. This opens into a warm and inviting entrance hall with attractive parquet wood flooring. The two versatile reception rooms can be accessed off here. The living room to the right offers great proportions, It has a multi-fuel stove set within a stone surround on a flagged stone hearth with a feature exposed beam lintel. Lovely views can be enjoyed over the front to the green with countryside beyond. This view is also seen from the adjacent lounge, which again offers good proportions and could be utilised as a formal dining room. The open fireplace is perfect for creating a cosy atmosphere in the winter months. Newly updated in 2019, the stunning dining kitchen has easily become the heart of the home. Offering ample space for a dining table set in front of French doors leading out into the garden, this is a space where all the family can regroup and guests can relax and dine comfortably. The bespoke modern kitchen was designed and installed by Lakeland Kitchens of Kendal and includes a range of traditional shaker style units in white finished with quality Silestone worktops. There is also a range of high quality NEFF appliances to include a double oven, combination microwave, induction hob complete with extractor over and a bespoke splash back designed by a local artist, full length integrated fridge, freezer, integrated dishwasher and sink equipped with a Quooker tap. The dual aspect of garden views fill the room with natural light and the floors are finished in classic large ceramic tiles. From the kitchen there is access to a rear entrance porch and a useful ground floor WC.

An enclosed staircase from the entrance hall leads up to the galleried landing of the first floor. There are a total of three double bedrooms on offer, each with delightful views over the front of the property. The master bedroom boasts a dual aspect to capture the view of the green, surrounding countryside as well as the private garden. There is also a beautiful Victorian decorative tiled cast iron fireplace that previously resided within the living room, creating an attractive focal point to this bright and airy room. The master bedroom is located along an inner hall which can be closed off from the rest of the first floor accommodation, along with a shower room, to create a private sanctuary. The shower room has been recently updated and is tastefully finished to include a double shower and complementary neutral tiling to the walls. There is also a large family bathroom with a fitted bath and separate shower and a large walk-in airing cupboard.

The detached stone built barn can be accessed to the rear of the property and has been, in parts, converted to provide some superb additions to the main property. They include a utility room complete with space for a washing machine and dryer, a large first floor home office with high ceilings and two Velux windows, flooding the space with natural light, an adjoining wood and coal store and then the 3 bay, full height barn which offers an amazing space that is currently used as a workshop for DIY and for storage. The main barn can also be accessed from the parking area off the road via a large full height barn door so it also makes for a great garage large enough for two cars.

The oil-fired central heating is controlled remotely by a telephone app meaning the whole system can be operated to switch on separately the barn office and house heating and key lights from any location in the world.

Outside The private garden is enclosed to the rear of the property and provides a very pleasant area to enjoy the peaceful surrounds. Boasting neat and decorative stone flagged patios and a manicured lawn that is bounded by tidy planted shrubs and plants, it provides year round attraction but really comes to life in the spring time with plenty of colourful rhododendrons and azaleas. To the front of the property, there is a cobbled private parking area with space for two vehicles and as previously mentioned, vehicle access into the detached barn.
