Full Details

An excellent opportunity to acquire a spacious three bedroom detached property. 

Nestled in a semi rural location with stunning views including distant view of Lake Windermere through the trees. Large private garden and parking. Originally developed from a Lakeland barn which we believe was converted in the 1960’s and subsequently extended over the years creating a deceptively spacious property. A versatile property although requiring modernisation throughout, it represents an ideal opportunity for reconfiguring, remodelling and possibly extending. Currently with two reception rooms, one bathroom and one cloaks room. 

The property will suit a variety of buyers whether as a main family/retirement property or equally as a second/holiday home.  

Occupying a superb and enviable elevated position, above the very popular Lakeland town of Ambleside. The views towards Wansfell Pike are magnificent,  which are enjoyed from the majority of rooms. Private garden and parking. 

Bordering open countryside yet only ¾ of a mile away from the towns amenities. The town itself has a wide range of amenities, shops, restaurants and cinema’s and is an ideal base for varied outdoor activity. Whilst the property enjoys an abundance of walks for all abilities from the front door step.
