Storrs Hill is a fine example of a substantial detached Edwardian Lakeland house, built in 1905 by Pattinsons of Windermere in the highly regarded residential area of Storrs Park. Ideally situated in 2 acres of sunny south west facing gardens, offering a high degree of privacy, set in delightful mature gardens and grounds enjoying seclusion without isolation. Storrs Hill has been a much loved family home for nearly twenty years and during that time has been carefully and tastefully converted from its former use as a care home. The house is situated 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 and within a short drive.
Storrs Hill has retained many original features and the current vendors have carefully updated and maintained the property to a high standard, ensuring a very well presented home that will attract a range of buyers. This very substantial property is extremely versatile, making an excellent family home; the spacious accommodation is set out over three floors with each room benefiting from good proportions and high ceilings. Presently, the accommodation features three reception rooms, study, garden/sun room, kitchen with pantry and utility, five double bedrooms, five en-suite facilities and large family bathroom. There is scope to further develop the double garage into an additional or separate accommodation, if so required, subject to planning permission; excellent for either dependent or independent relatives – or indeed for perhaps providing a separate income.
This home will revel in family life, with spaces created both indoors and outdoors for socialising, quiet time and everything in between. Surrounding the main house, approximately two acres of gardens are an exquisite combination of established woodland, landscaping and lawns. A network of paths and tracks lead around the grounds, and the vendors have flawlessly created a haven perfect for outside entertaining, al fresco dining or relaxing. Practically, the property is approached by private gates leading off Storrs Hill Lane and there is plentiful parking and turning areas. Sitting well within the substantial grounds, with little impact on the property, there is potential to siphon off a section of land which had previously had planning been devised in 1990 to build a detached dwelling. Subject to planning permission, there is potential for development of both the house and within the grounds.
