Thornbarrow Road is well regarded and sits between the villages of Windermere and Bowness, convenient for local schooling, health centre, store, recreation field and a range of shopping facilities.
Built over 50 years ago, Cranmere is an individually designed detached house positioned to make the most of the sunny aspect and pleasant views over the village to the higher fells in the distance. On an attractive garden plot the house is well planned with good size windows making for bright rooms and enjoying views over the garden or to the higher fells. The property has had recent works of refurbishment including a newly fitted kitchen, bathroom and carpeting. With gas fired central heating and double glazed the property is set out on two floors over a lower level utility and work shop which could easily be incorporated into the living accommodation if required. Mature gardens are an appealing feature in the property which also has a valuable asset of generous off road parking in front of a substantial detached double garage.
