Property Details

Gale Rigg is a highly popular development which was originally constructed circa 1870 as a private home and later used as a school. In the early 1970’s Gale Rigg was developed into ten individual apartments with small but well tended gardens, in addition to a superb south facing communal lawn to the front. Each of the apartments have garaging and number 5 has an excellent position at the rear of the building on the ground floor with it’s own private entrance. The well planned and superbly presented accommodation is spacious and enjoys magnificent west facing views towards Loughrigg and Fairfield Horseshoe. Having been modernised in recent years by the present owners to a high specification, benefiting from a new kitchen and bathroom as well as having a new central heating boiler plus double glazed windows. The accommodation provides an ideal home or weekend retreat which offers privacy and peace of mind in an enviable position with stunning fell views.
