Keen Ground Lodge is set only a short gentle stroll away from the popular village of Hawkshead. Nestled on the edge of the village being a convenient five minute walk away. The property was originally constructed in 1920 and has been in the same family for sixty years. It provides spacious three bedroom accommodation, and although it has been well maintained it will require some modernisation. Set in an enviable plot which extends to approximately one acre. Benefiting from an attractive manageable garden which borders its small private paddock which provides excellent opportunities and control. The property may benefit from an extension as the land certainly allows for this, subject to planning permission. The property enjoys beautiful panoramic fell and country views to all sides, along with a delightful sunny aspect.
Positioned just a quarter of a mile or so out of the village to the north, whilst the larger market town of Ambleside is within a few minutes drive and there is good road connections across South Lakeland. There are several country and fell walks right from the doorstep and the higher peaks of the central Lake District are within easy striking distance. There is a good range of local amenities in Hawkshead village which also has a vibrant community and there are more services, shops, an excellent choice of cinemas and restaurants in nearby Ambleside.
Directions From Ambleside take the A593 towards Coniston and turn left at Clappersgate over the river signposted Hawkshead. Continue for approximately 4 miles through the hamlet of Outgate and as you approach Hawkshead continue over the bridge onto the straight, the pillared entrance to Keen Ground lodge can be found on the right hand side.
