Being elevated really gives you some good views, from the living room and two bedrooms the outlook is over the garage and roof tops opposite to Claife Heights in the distance, from the dining kitchen the view is to Crescent Road and Oak Street where you can watch the world go by. With an entrance shared with one other apartment, the property offers a sitting room, dining kitchen, two good double bedrooms and a house bathroom. The main bedroom is on the third floor and has not only an ensuite shower room but also a dressing room/home office or hobbies space. Adding character are several of the original Victorian panel internal doors, high ceilings, tall windows and deep skirting boards. Adding a contemporary touch are chrome socket and switch covers. For comfort and convenience there is gas fired central heating to radiators and UPVC double glazing.
We understand the property can not be used as a holiday rental, however it would made an ideal main residence, second home or long term rental (AST).
Step out of your front door and you are right in the heart of bustling Windermere village where there are plenty of cafes, bars and restaurants, shops and local services, including doctors, dentists and opticians, super markets (Co-op, Sainsbury’s and Booths) and the Post Office. If you like getting out and about then there are lots of great walks from the property including up local hills and view points Orrest Head or School Knott and down to Miller Ground on the shores of Lake Windermere. Busy Bowness on Windermere is within walking distance giving an even greater choice of shops and places to eat and drink.
