Fell Tops has the benefit of a highly accessible Lakeland location.

Built in the 1930s it was extended in 2000 and then renovated with contemporary flair since the present owners’ purchase in December 2017. It’s been an impressive transformation and now presents as a well equipped modern family home that will no doubt appeal to first and second home owners.

Internally offering a large sitting room, an inviting dining kitchen and utility room, five bedrooms, a bathroom and two shower rooms. Contemporary and stylish, the fixtures and fittings are of a high quality and have been cleverly and carefully chosen to create a modern family home, ready to move straight into.

Outside you’ll find a detached single garage, generous parking for family and friends and established, well stocked gardens. Located at Ings between Kendal and Windermere, Fell Tops offers great accessibility for local facilities and the road and rail network.

Highly recommended for those seeking a turn-key solution - there’s also planning permission for a new porch and drawings for a further extension should you wish to put your own stamp on the property.


Set back off the A591 for maximum accessibility Fell Tops enjoys an elevated setting and offers distant fell views and a south facing position.

A location that is handy for all that Staveley ( 1.9 miles), Windermere ( 2.4 miles) and Kendal (6.8 miles) has to offer in terms of educational, recreational, commercial and retail facilities. Access to the M6 is at Junction 34 and for train travel, Oxenholme on the main West Coast railway line is 10.2 miles distant. In Ings itself there is the Watermill Inn and Brewery, BP service station and general store, Bike Treks and just up the road, the Lakeland Farm Visitor Centre – a favourite with visitors and locals alike for their super farm shop and great café (serving amongst other things, brilliant breakfasts, cracking cakes and lovely lunches).

If you have children and are thinking of schooling, there are primary schools in Staveley and Windermere and secondary schools in Troutbeck Bridge and Kendal.



The entrance porch/sun room is ideally situated to make the most of the south facing aspect and received uninterrupted sun all day. Now looking a little dated the vendors have planning permission to replace with a traditional porch, but also have plans drawn for two options with a more contemporary edge.

Large sitting room with plenty of room for a dining table if you wanted a multi function main reception room. Dual aspect including a square bay window with views to the south. Sandstone fireplace and multifuel stove. Cornice to ceiling, downlighters, floating display shelves and TV point.

On the westerly elevation sliding doors with fitted blinds lead out to the garden and a deep window seat with underbuilt bookshelves provides a great place to sit with a coffee and admire the view. Downlighters and TV point with wall mounted bracket. The matt pale grey kitchen cabinets themselves came from Maelstrom Lancaster Ltd and are topped with white quartz worktops, the look being finished with Dekton splashbacks in white with a pale grey vein. The island unit incorporates a breakfast bar and has a De Dietrich induction hob and electric oven with a fan over. Integral appliances include a Bosch dishwasher, and tall fridge and freezer units.

There is planning permission granted by the Lake District National Park Planning Department (Ref 7/2019/5409 dated 23rd July 2019) for the demolition of the sun room on the front elevation and construction of a porch. The vendors also have drawings for more contemporary porches although these have not been submitted for consideration. Interested parties should ask the Agents for details.
