Raffleys is a stunning, luxury first floor apartment originally part of a gentleman’s former residence situated in a quiet position looking out over landscaped and well maintained communal gardens with far reaching distant views. Just a stones throw from the centre of Windermere, this is a true rarity for such a modern apartment in such a sought after location. With great attention to detail, the apartment has been recently refurbished using high end fixtures and fittings throughout, including new windows, modern two tone shaker style kitchen and attractive fitted shower room to mention just a few of its upgrades. The apartment has been well planned and offers plenty of space throughout providing a large sitting room, dining kitchen, two large double bedrooms and a family bathroom with separate WC. The quiet yet very convenient location of the apartment will appeal to a range of buyers, from those looking for a lock up and leave holiday home, a commercial holiday let or indeed a stylish permanent home or retirement apartment. The property is being sold as a going concern with the majority of contents (apart from some personal items) and forward bookings. Located just on the outskirts of the main hustle and bustle of Windermere village, Raffleys offers the best of both worlds. The private setting is just a short stroll to the plethora of independent shops, cafes, restaurants and bars of this popular destination. The property is also a short walk away from Windermere train station. A short bus ride or manageable walk brings you to the waterfront and the Lake District’s ‘honeypot destination’, Bowness-On-Windermere. It’s also a short drive to the A592 so it’s a great location for those who are looking to commute.
