Full Details

Flat 3 Braeside is a superb and generously proportioned first floor self contained cottage style apartment with three bedrooms and well and truly magnificent 270 degree panoramic views of Lake Windermere and surrounding fells.

Enjoying an established private garden, useful stone stores, garage and parking. Originally an imposing large detached family residence which we believe was constructed circa 1910 known as Braeside. Subsequently divided into three properties in 1981 by the current family. Flat 3 is the principle portion with its own private entrance.

The location of Braeside is perfectly placed in its own gardens and grounds off Skelghyll Lane on the edge of the village yet only ten minutes walk from Ambleside centre. Although the property will suit a variety of buyers whether as a retirement property or family residence there is a covenant against holiday letting.

Enviably positioned on the edge of the town with local amenities that are close by, the property also enjoys an abundance of fell and country walks from the doorstep with Skelghyll woods, Wansfell Pike and Jenkins Crag view point easily accessible from Skelghyll Lane. The position provides a superb vantage point allowing breathtaking views to all sides. Including extensive views from the front towards Loughrigg, the Coniston range, towards the Langdales and the surrounding fells of Wansfell Pike from the rear.
