Rare opportunity to acquire one of the few boathouses on this most famous stretch of water in the English Lake District National Park. Situated on the eastern shores of Lake Windermere on the southern outskirts of Bowness-on-Windermere, Cherry Tree is a stunningly located detached wet dock boathouse which has been newly rebuilt with care and attention, to a very high standard with excellent use of natural Lakeland stone. The property has been thoughtfully designed to incorporate and enhance its fabulous position over the Lake including vast glass elements that ensure the far reaching views across the water to the backdrop of the wooded fells and mountains to the north are the main focal point.
Situated close to the midway point of the lake, this well position boathouse is an excellent base to explore the north to southern shores of Lake Windermere with the Royal Windermere Yacht Club and Windermere Marina close by and the shops, restaurants and facilities of bustling Bowness only a short walk away. From this south side of Bowness, there is good road access to Junction 36 of the M6 and there is an excellent mainline rail service at Kendal bringing the centre of London within reach in 2.5 hours.
Built of modern block and steel frame and faced in attractive Lakeland stone, Cherry Trees has been built to offer excellent facilities for the boat enthusiast with a new 26ft timber jetty, wet dock measuring 35ft by 13ft and new 4ft wide timber gangways. Finished throughout to exacting standards and with an array of modern comforts including underfloor heating, Lutron lighting, remote skylights, double glazing and beautiful finishes including green slate tiled flooring an inset spot lighting.
Complimenting the boating facilities are some excellent day room facilities with the entrance hall giving access to a cloaks room and the wet dock with a beautiful oak glazed staircase leading to the first floor. Spanning the upper floor is a generously proportioned day room with vaulted ceiling and skylights and fitted with a well equipped kitchen including a selection of gloss fronted units and granite worktops incorporating fridge/freezer, wine cooler, dishwasher, electric AGA and inset stainless steel sink. Sliding patio doors from the day room open onto a large tiled balcony which has a fully glazed guardrail so not to interrupt the views. To the rear of the day room is a sliding door leading to separate store room with skylight, power points and both ceiling and wall lighting and finished with a slate tiled floor. From the landing there is a large built in cupboard housing a washing machine and dryer with stone worktop and cupboards above and adjacent is a beautifully finished fully tiled shower room featuring walk in shower with raindrop shower head, WC and wash basin with storage both below and above in mirrored cabinet.
Approaching the property, the private lane leads off the main A592 (Newby Bridge Road) and into a cul-de-sac of private boathouses. Cherry Trees is the first boathouse you approach with parking for two vehicles in front and a Lakeland stone wall surrounding a pleasant patio area.
