Jessamine Cottage is a three bedroom Grade II Listed traditional property which we believe dates back to the 17th century. The property has extremely well proportioned rooms including large sitting room, kitchen/diner and three double bedrooms with an abundance of highly desirable original character features such as exposed beams, oak panelling and flagged floors.

Although the property has been enjoyed by the current family for over 100 years it is in a good state of repair but it will require some modernising such as new kitchen, bathroom plus decoration throughout. Equally suitable as a superb permanent dwelling or holiday home, with a delightful and generous size rear garden which is majority lawn, bordering open countryside attracting a delightful sunny aspect and country views with parking and double garage.

Set in a picturesque rural position and gently elevated giving pleasant views, the cottage is within easy reach of the Lakeland villages of Hawkshead, Coniston and Ambleside with a wide variety of amenities at hand. Hawkshead is approximately 1 mile away with Chemist, post office, doctors and shop etc. With endless fell and country walks from the door step, being only a short walk from the highly popular Tarn Hows.
