Full Details

Brooklands is a traditional post war built detached 3 bedroom home set on a beautifully elevated plot overlooking the Crake Valley and the Lake District fells beyond.

This well loved home has been in the same ownership for over 40 years and offers the chance for a new buyer to put their own stamp on this three storey dwelling which includes an integral garage. Presently a generous three bedroom home enjoying a sunny outlook over the gardens and surrounding countryside and offering a good family living space with plenty of character. Equally, Brooklands could appeal as a very comfortable holiday letting proposition in an excellent location close to Coniston Water.
