The Water Garden Suite is one of ten individual properties developed from this fine Lakeland mansion house, built in 1863 for the then vicar of Ambleside, Cannon Bell. The Grade II Listed building was developed by Lancashire Homes Limited to a very high specification with the current owners adding an additional bathroom and re-decoration. Care has been taken to make the most of the original features of the property and of the stunning views towards Fairfield Horseshoe. The property also enjoys a private entrance courtyard and private paved terrace area and lawn which also enjoys the breathtaking aspect.
An extremely comfortable and secure permanent home or equally suitable as a luxury weekend or holiday retreat in the heart of the Lake District. Water Garden Suite offers a rarely found opportunity. Presently a successful 5* holiday letting property let through Heart Of The Lakes. Currently generating circa £23,000 pa, with the potential to increase that and is being sold with forward bookings and the majority of contents.
