Discover Sealford Farm, a distinctly unique home perched in the rural heights of Hutton Roof, close to Kirkby Lonsdale.
A rustic hand-carved sign points your way along a practically private country lane – the only other traffic consisting of your handful of neighbours in the hamlet.
Follow the large gravelled driveway, that serves Sealford Farm and its sprinkling of neighbours, and park up; there’s plenty of room.
Instantly sense the serenity of this secluded spot: a haven for wildlife, birds and walkers alike. Only the gentle chatter of birdsong and the occasional honk of the resident geese, floating on the miniature lake across the way, interrupt the quiet of this rural retreat.
Sealford Farm is a home brimming with unique bedrooms, welcoming living areas and quirky dining areas, ready to bend itself into whatever shape you require.
At Sealford Farm enjoy the luxury of two distinct living rooms, each offering a different atmosphere and outlook.
Step up to the ornate set of partially-glazed double doors at the front of this enigmatic home. An outer porch provides de-booting shelter for walkers returning from an invigorating yomp up the neighbouring fells.
Inside, a quaint sitting room is set about a stone surround fireplace and cosy log-burning stove.
Rustic wooden beams extend across both ends of the room, reflecting the country setting of this home whilst also mirroring the warm tones of the wooden skirting boards and chair rails. Beneath your feet, oak-effect flooring completes the scene of rural rusticity.
Upstairs, an enormous mezzanine level living room is the perfect space in which to entertain, looking out over the kitchen below.
Exposed woodwork coats the vaulted ceiling amidst décor of pretty floral pinks and greens. A decorative chimney breast houses a multi-fuel stove, ensuring this vast space is kept warm and snug whatever the weather outside.
An array of casement windows makes the most of the verdant views to the front of the house, looking out over the leafy green of the trees, past the miniature lake and to the forest-fringed hills beyond. To the rear, a large Velux frames views over the elevated sloping fields and cotton-ball sheep grazing amongst them.
There is even a handy study area looking out to the back garden, ideal for penning letters, musings or even novels.

I was instantly in love with this home because it is a quintessential cottage with cosy rooms and a quirky layout. If you want something different and beguiling this one is likely the one for you. Living space is so important and the ENORMOUS living room on the mezzannine first floor is the single best part of this home (well, that and the master suite).
All I could imagine is watching a film in the winter all snug with smells from the sunday roast tickling your taste buds.
Come to this with an open mind because it’s different to everything on the market and the location itself will steal your heart!
ps: There’s more garden than you can see on the photos so call me and I’ll show you.

3 ways at Sealford Farm
To make it a little easier there are 3 ways to use this super flexible home:
1 – As it is – a 3 bedroom home with all the quirks and loveliness just as you see it – sweet and cottagey <i’m aware that is not a word but it just fits this lovely home.
2 – As a 1 bedroom Air BNB – its a pretty good earner for a lifestyle business (one guy stayed for 3 months)
3 – Or you could have a little re-jig about and make something more traditional
I love it just as it is and love the potential to earn. But it’s nice to have a choice
