Lane Head is a stunning detached property amid beautiful gardens and surrounded by breathtaking scenery, situated in the village of Great Musgrave.

Great Musgrave is a pretty village just less than 4 miles outside of Kirkby Stephen, a busy town with a wide range of shops, pubs, restaurants, primary and secondary schools, medical facilities and weekly outdoor market. It has easy access to the M6 and the A66 trans-Pennine route, as well as rail links via the Settle-Carlisle line. The property is within the Upper Eden Valley with the Yorkshire Dales close by. Kirkby Stephen is known as the 'Gateway to the Westmorland Dales'.

A wealth of sensitively reclaimed original features and inspired additions make this a special property. On the ground floor, a living kitchen diner, with a bespoke fitted kitchen and utility room flow into the lounge with log burning stove and in which features of the original cow byre are reclaimed. The multifuel stove in the living kitchen has an open fire feature. The Green Oak double glazed garden room beyond provides another warm and welcoming space, which nevertheless sits well with the age of the property. There are bespoke double glazed windows throughout, underfloor heating downstairs and radiators upstairs which is heated by the Oil fired Rayburn. Upstairs, there are 3 double bedrooms, the master having a vaulted ceiling with exposed timber beams, stonework, and an en-suite shower room. Additionally, there is a good sized contemporary bathroom.

Externally, the property is surrounded by beautiful gardens, with lawned areas, fruit trees, flower beds and vegetable plots, not to mention the fantastic suntrap patio.

Across from the property, next to the small garth, is a single garage and workshop, both serviced with power, light and water. Parking at the property is found on the gated driveway, to the front of the garage doors and under the bespoke Green Oak carport.

Lane Head is a truly a unique and beautiful property and viewing is highly recommended.
