2 Kiln Cottages is a beautiful and quintessential two bedroom, mid-terrace traditional Lakeland cottage, which we believe dates from the Victorian period. It is an attractively presented and well-maintained property, which has been in the family for a number of generations.
The property features two bedrooms that enjoy good proportions, currently comprising a double and a twin room. The living room has a delightful view over the garden and the kitchen/diner is also a very attractive and practical room. The cottage offers light and airy south-facing accommodation over the private garden extending towards the River Brathay, where it has the distinct advantage of private river frontage. In addition, there is a separate, highly useful utility room and a small stone store. Both are ideal for boots, wet clothing, bikes and garden furniture. There is also designated private parking for one vehicle.
The property will suit a variety of buyers whether as a main residence, holiday home/bolt home or holiday letting property. It is anticipated to generate an annual income of circa £35,000 to £45,000. Occupying an excellent Lakeland location, the cottage is conveniently positioned approximately 1 mile to the west of the popular market town of Ambleside in the desirable hamlet of Clappersgate. The property is only a 15 minute level walk into Ambleside which has a variety of amenities including shops, restaurants, Post Office, library, churches etc. There are numerous fell and country walks from the doorstep including access onto Loughrigg.
Directions From Ambleside take the road signposted Coniston between Ambleside Rugby Club and Rothay Manor Hotel, cross over the bridge and continue for approximately ¾ mile passing The Croft on the right hand side. Continue past the turning for Hawkshead and the property can be accessed via the next drive on the left.
