An extremely rare opportunity has arisen to acquire a stylish and contemporary home in a highly desirable area of Storrs Park, Bowness-on-Windermere in the very heart of the Lake District National Park. Built and designed by an architect in the 1970’s, this split level designed property has remained in the same family for the last 40 years. This fine family home has been purposely designed to make best use of the views from the main living areas with full length windows to the lounge and dining area which has doors out onto the glass balcony which encapsulate views towards Lake Windermere. This versatile accommodation offers four double bedrooms, open plan living space, garage and driveway with planning permission to enhance the property with further garaging, studio and swimming pool.
Situated in one of the most beautiful areas of England, Hideaway offers peace and tranquillity in a quiet yet convenient location on the fringes of Bowness. Well placed for travel, junction 36 of the M6 motorway is a mere 20 minutes with Manchester city and airport reached by road within 90 minutes. Links to the west coast mainline from Oxenholme are a mere 20 minutes drive away or join at Windermere for easy connection. In addition to the super scenery, Bowness and Windermere offer a well established sailing club, motor boat club, golf club and Royal Windermere Yacht club all within easy reach of Hideaway.
The main front entrance at Hideaway boasts impressive double oak doors leading into a large contemporary entrance dining and sitting area offering a full wall of glass, which floods with natural light and overlooks the gardens and beyond to the lake. A light airy modern breakfast kitchen recently fitted with new appliances and a utility area off to the side. Open stairs lead up to a magnificent lounge area with an open vaulted ceiling with beams, a log burner and floor to ceiling windows overlooking the lake offering views of the Coniston Old Man mountain range and beyond. A minstrels gallery over looking the entrance hallway leads to a cosy double guest suite with en-suite bath room. Open stairs lead down to the lower level of this house where you will find a large family room with two sets of double doors leading out to the front garden, a very versatile area which would lend itself to a number of various purposes. Down open stairs there are a further two double bedrooms, one with en-suite, a family shower room and a large master bedroom suite with a large en-suite and dressing area with fitted wardrobes, offering a double shower, bath and a sauna. Double doors out of the bedroom lead onto a slated terrace. The terrace area overspill’s onto a flat private lawned area, sheltered by a scattering of trees and bushes.
Occupying a gently sloping site this property offers large gardens with mature planted shrubs, native trees and a series of contemporary decked areas and terraces. The large decked balcony on the first floor with clear glass panels enabling views towards Lake Windermere. A driveway to the front of the property with space for two cars, a single garage with an electric door provides a useful storage with extra storage in the eves. There is also planning consent for a further garage, split level study/snug area and an outdoor swimming pool which would enhance and develop this property further and enable a buyer to tailor the living space to their needs.
