Full Details

Oakdene is an immaculately presented large modern detached seven bedroom house with six bathrooms built in the 1970’s

Comprehensively refurbished, extended and partially reconfigured, to a high specification by the present owners in recent years. The property enjoys quality fitted oak doors throughout, newly installed grey WarmCore aluminium framed windows and external doors plus bathrooms equipped by Duravit.

All assisting to create a stunning contemporary residence, which is generously proportioned with a light and airy aspect. The property offers highly versatile accommodation currently divided into two spacious houses, one offering four bedrooms and three bathrooms, whilst the other provides three bedrooms and three bathrooms. Both operating as highly successful and well established holiday lets. Offering combined rental potential of circa £70,000 pa. Sold with the benefit of all forward bookings and the majority of contents. The properties are presented to an excellent 4* and 5* gold standard, having the benefit of a new kitchen in the main house, numerous new bathrooms and a new heating and hot water system. The property would also make an ideal family home or personal weekend retreat.

Set in the middle of this highly popular Lakeland village, within easy walking distance of the pub and local shop, the property is positioned on an attractive sized plot with generous parking to the front and rear of the property and has a delightful and manageable garden.

Oakdene is situated in Chapel Stile, a small village which is surrounded by magnificent views towards various fells. Langdale Valley is at the very heart of the Lake District and probably where the most breath taking scenery is. Chapel Stile is an unspoilt village and amazingly peaceful, with gentle river walks to a wide variety of classic fell walks all close by.
