Full Details

Heronsyde is an attractive well presented, substantial and highly versatile two bedroom, two bathroom detached traditional Lakeland property. 

The property has been well planned and designed, having a large garage/utility room on the lower ground floor with all the current accommodation on the first floor including superb open plan living/ kitchen/diner with attractive feature front and side aspect balcony. The property was built to a high specification in 1994 by a highly reputable local builder Richard Bowness who constructed the property leaving scope and providing the potential to convert the attic. This could easily be converted into an additional two bedrooms and either one or two additional bathrooms. Lintels are in place for windows and it primarily requires the second fix. 

A versatile house, which will suit a variety of purchasers, whether as a permanent home or holiday home/ let. As already mentioned, it could conceivably be transformed into a four bedroom property.
