Property Details

DESCRIPTION Underhowe is a rare find, offering spacious architect designed accommodation combining both contemporary and traditional styles with an abundance of character throughout. The current vendor extended the original traditional Lakeland cottage into the adjoining barn in 2006/2007 creating an excellently proportioned and spacious five bedroom semi detached property which offers three reception rooms and three bathrooms including one en-suite. The property has an extensive easily maintained garden to the front with orchard and a large private courtyard to the rear together with parking for at least three vehicles with scope to create further if required.

An ideal property whether as a permanent home or weekend retreat. The property has previously been used as a highly successful holiday let through Wheelwrights of Elterwater and we believe it would generate an annual income of approximately £40,000.

SITUATION Underhowe is a rare find in Grasmere whilst only a few yards level walk from the centre of this popular village with its wonderful blend of independent shops, restaurants, galleries and cafes. Underhowe offers a feeling of privacy being tucked away off the village centre. Ideally positioned with endless fell and country walks from the door.

DIRECTIONS From the centre of the village take the road to the left hand side of Miller Howe Café and turn right immediately prior to the block of three garages. Proceed through the gate and the property is first on the left.
