Property Details

Hillcrest is a delightful and spacious cottage style bungalow offering superb and well planned three bedroom accommodation with two bathrooms including one ensuite and two reception rooms. We believe the property was built circa the 1920’s and benefits from a more recent extension. Immaculately presented with an attractive light and airy atmosphere enjoying large picture windows and open views. Although the property is generally presented in a contemporary design it does have some character features such as cast iron fire, multi fuel stove etc. Additionally it benefits from full UPVC double glazing and recently installed gas central heating.

The property will suit a variety of buyers whether as a highly desirable holiday property or equally desirable main residence. Having a superb spacious living room with excellent country views, leading through to the open plan kitchen/dining room again with attractive south facing aspect and country views. With three spacious bedrooms which are either doubles or twins. Both the bathroom and ensuite have been modernised in recent years and are presented to a high standard.

Lovingly refurbished to a excellent five star standard providing the highest quality. The property is a well established and highly popular holiday letting property let via Heart of the Lakes and generates around £25,000 pa. The property is being sold with all forward bookings and with the majority of contents with the exception of a few personal items.
