Reception Rooms: 3
An extremely appealing large detached home in the highly regarded residential area of Storrs Park, which has been enlarged and improved by the present owners and also has the asset of planning consent to further develop if required. Positioned on a generous garden plot, Amberwell offers well planned family accommodation which is versatile, very well appointed and it will suit a wide range of buyers, including those seeking all facilities on one level or with the potential of designing a separate family annexe.
The layout currently provides three reception rooms, a stunning day room and kitchen addition, four bedrooms and three bathrooms; adjacent there is a large double garage and workshop, ample parking and neatly attended lawns and gardens, set behind mature hedging and an electrically gated approach off Middle Entrance Drive.
Gently elevated, Amberwell has a sunny aspect and enjoys pleasant views across the surrounding countryside with glimpses of the lake and distant fells. Middle Entrance Drive is a private road within sought after Storrs Park and yet is within easy reach of Windermere Marina, Yacht Club, Golf Club and varied shops, restaurants and bars in Bowness on Windermere. There is a choice of schooling close by and excellent transport links with the west coast rail line and M6, easily accessible within a short drive.
