Property Details

Well Bank is an excellent detached house that we believe dates back to the 1960’s. An extremely deceptively proportioned property which provides excellent and spacious three/four bedroom accommodation with two reception rooms. Additionally there is an excellent workshop and integrated double garage which could provide scope for future refurbishment and expansion. The property enjoys superb far reaching west facing views towards Loughrigg and Wetherlam especially from the substantial terrace accessed via the sitting room. As well as having low maintenance, manageable gardens to the front and rear and a garage there is also parking for at least 5 vehicles including use of the car port.

The property would equally be suitable as a main residence or weekend/holiday retreat.

Enviably located in a quiet position on the south side of Ambleside on the lower slopes of Wansfell Pike, neighbouring Fisherbeck Park which is a popular residential area. The property enjoys a superb position with stunning country views whilst also being conveniently positioned only a few minutes walk away from the wide variety of amenities that Ambleside has to offer including shops, restaurants, public houses, local churches and a primary school. Additionally there are endless fell and country walks from the door step.

Directions From our office proceed to the top of Kelsick Road onto Lake Road and turn immediately left onto Old Lake Road. Continue for approximately 300 metres and, before reaching Fisherbeck Lane, turn left in to a private driveway with stone gateposts signed ‘Well Bank and Bank Foot’ and ‘The Coach House’. Well Bank can be found on the right hand side at the top of the driveway.
