Full Details

Brow Foot is an excellent four/five bedroom detached property with two/three reception rooms.

Built circa 1880 and benefits from multiple extensions over the years making it a well proportioned property. Being a Victorian style property it benefits from high ceilings and large windows, allowing the vast majority of rooms to have stunning panoramic views towards Fairfield Horseshoe and Loughrigg to name a few. Nestled on an excellent plot, in a superb gently elevated position, with beautiful far reaching fell and country views across the Lakeland countryside. The property has a large south facing garden to the rear bordering open countryside. Whilst there is an impressive attached garage with planning permission in perpetuity to extend above and create an additional two en-suite bedrooms. The property also has the distinct advantage of its own private lake frontage on Lake Windermere with mooring rights.

Equally suitable for a wide variety of buyers whether as a main residence, be that as a family home or retirement property, second home or holiday letting property it would suit all. We believe it could generate an annual gross income of circa £70,000 - £80,000.
