Barn End is a superb end-of-terrace, Grade II Listed barn conversion. Renovated throughout in 2020 it is presented to a high standard and specification and has been equipped with two new bathrooms and a new kitchen, all in a fresh, contemporary style. The property has been substantially rewired with new LED lighting throughout and a smoke alarm system has been fitted. The spacious living accommodation on the upper floor enjoys stunning countryside views across the Langdale Valley towards Loughrigg and the Grasmere Fells. The three double bedrooms are situated on the lower ground floor, which also has an additional front entrance.
Barn End has the distinct advantage of a private parking area for two vehicles, as well as a detached garage. A manageable garden wraps around the property, affording an open sunny aspect and beautiful, far-reaching country views to side and rear. The property has recently been set up as a holiday letting property and is being sold as a going concern with all forward bookings and the majority of contents. We understand it should potentially generate an income of £30,000 per annum before agent's fees.
Set close to the peaceful hamlet of Skelwith Fold, Barn End lies within one of The Lake District's most sought after locations. It is well placed in the heart of the Lake District National Park on a hillside above the famous Skelwith Force waterfall in the Langdale Valley. Many beautiful fell and valley walks can be started from the doorstep, including the famous Elterwater Round. The popular market town of Ambleside is just 2.5 miles away and The Skelwith Bridge Hotel, famous Drunken Duck Inn and the stylish Chester's Café are all to be found within easy walking distance.
The Lake District is a haven for the adventurer, offering not only a plethora of stunning scenery and walks but also a great choice of water sports and sailing, trail running, mountain biking and climbing. Windermere Lake and Coniston Water are the top lake attractions in the area and both are easily accessible from Barn End.
All in all, the property's position is great for accessing the best that The Lake District has to offer whilst still retaining that all-important peaceful, countryside location.
