The front door opens into a large hall with a beautiful original wood staircase to middle and top floors.
On either side of front door are two sitting rooms, one spacious and modern with large bay window, leading to a small balcony. The other is smaller and snug in a more traditional style, it was originally the library to the house and still has a collection of books and games for adults and children. There are also maps and pamphlets on walks for everyone. Both sitting rooms have open log fires, T.V including free sat + box, stereos, DVD and video players.
To the rear of the hallway is a large dining room/kitchen and a utility room leading to a shower room with toilet. The kitchen has a large range style cooker, fridge and microwave and is well equipped with more than adequate crockery, cutlery and glasses. There are plenty of large pots, pans, serving dishes, baking trays, kitchen utensils and electrical equipment. We know that Kirkbeck is often used for celebratory meals so we’ve tried to think of everything that might be needed.
The cellar has been converted into a games room with a full-size slate-bed pool table.
The utility room has a larger fridge, a chest freezer, two dishwashers and a washing machine.
The first floor has a spacious, light landing with four bedrooms:
1 double en-suite
1 double with small double sofa bed
1 double with wash hand basin
1 twin with wash hand basin
1 large bathroom includes bath with shower over, toilet and washhand basin
1 small toilet and washhand basin
1 drying cupboard
1 double plus single bedded room with en-suite
1 family room with double bed, single bed, plus a pull out single bed
1 twin bedded room
1 double room (with fantastic views)
1 bathroom includes bath with shower over, toilet and washhand basin (with fantastic views)
There is also a good quality put-you-up on the landing which could be used in most rooms.
The house back and front has a covered veranda(ideal for smokers as smoking is not permitted indoors). The garden is large, well established with child safe fences and gates. There are two patio areas with large trestle tables one with access to the dining/kitchen area through french doors. Parking is ample at front of the house (5 cars with full access, space for 8 if necessary) and a loading and off loading area at rear.
A garden shed houses childrens outdoor games, barbeque equipment and garden furniture.
Immediately across the road is a play park and large area for team games. During the summer holidays the school next door opens its swimming pool and tennis courts to the public (please ask for details). The lake which is a flat 10min walk from the house has a cafe and boating centre and is perfect for paddling and swimming, picnicking, rowing and sailing.
