Full Details

The sale of Braeside represents an excellent opportunity to purchase a superb well presented and proportioned four bedroom and two bathroom split level detached property.

A quirky property nestled in a gently elevated position backing onto open countryside, spread over four levels with generously proportioned rooms including two reception rooms. Enjoying attractive fell and country views, mainly to the rear (west facing) with private garden, off road parking and double garage.

Originally built in the 1990’s as a family residence and has subsequently been used as a highly successful and well established 4* holiday letting property let via Sykes cottages. It is sold with all forward bookings and the majority of contents. The property achieves a gross income of £25,000 per annum with the potential to increase this.

Although presently a successful holiday let, it would be equally suitable as an ideal family or retirement property and will suit a variety of buyers. The property does benefit from an additional piece of land which is available by separate negotiation, situated adjacent to the property.

Torver is a small rural hamlet set within the Lake District National Park approximately 2 miles south of the popular village of Coniston just west of Coniston Water made famous for its connections with Donald Campbell, John Ruskin and Arthur Ransome. Set within a lovely unspoilt area from which the central Lakes is easily accessible, it is also convenient for the busy market town of Ulverston and transport routes on the A590 trunk road providing good access to the M6. Fast trains from Oxenholme reach London in 2.5 hours. The property is well placed to enjoy the countryside with a large variety of walks and outdoor activities from the doorstep and is in walking distance to two welcoming Lakeland Inns.
Also the village of Coniston is close by providing a wide variety of amenities including shops, petrol station, Churches and school.
