5 Loughrigg Brow is one of ten exclusive properties developed from this fine Lakeland mansion house, built in 1863 for the then vicar of Ambleside, Cannon Bell. The Grade II Listed building was developed by Lancashire Homes Limited in 1999 to a very high specification. Care has been taken to make the most of the original features of the property and of the stunning views towards Fairfield Horseshoe. The property also enjoys a lovely communal garden.

Loughrigg Brow occupies a stunning position on the lower slopes of Loughrigg Fell looking across the valley of the River Rothay to Ambleside and surrounding fells and mountains. The elevated position provides views and the ten acres of gardens and grounds offer peace and security that many purchasers seek, however, a wide range of amenities, restaurants and services are only a short walk across Rothay Park in the centre of Ambleside, from the doorstep there are a wide variety of country and fell walks.
