Rivers Edge presents an extremely rare opportunity to own one of three stunning, bespoke architect designed new build properties. Positioned in an tranquil idyllic picture-postcard location at the bottom of Loughrigg Fell, close to the famous Stepping Stones across the River Rothay and within a short distance of the popular town of Ambleside. Each of the three properties feel unique and internally extremely private due to the inspired and creatively designed curved shape of the building.
The use of local and recycled stone and the curved shape of the building enables it to blend seamlessly along with its eco friendly design into its stunning surroundings. The main features of the eco friendly design include Air sourced Heat pump providing under floor heating and hot water, high specification thermal insulation, triple A rated windows LED lighting throughout and A rated appliances, additionally a private water supply. The majority of the stone being excavated in the build and reused to stunning effect; as can be seen in the retaining stone wall running the full length of the property. Feature floor to ceiling aluminium double-glazed windows and patio doors across the entire frontage creates an abundance of light and frames magnificent panoramic views across the river and Lakeland countryside towards Wansfell Pike. This property is designed, constructed and presented to an extremely high specification. A great deal of attention has also been paid to the interior of the properties and they have been awarded a Visit England of a 5 Star Gold Award. In its first year of holiday letting it’s estimated to generate £35,000 gross this year and expected £40,000 plus in 2019. The property is being sold with all forward bookings and all individually sourced designer furniture and accessories. Rivers Edge is being hugely well received by guests with some already staying several times this year and booking return stays. www.steppingstonesriversideterrace.co.uk
The current owners worked with an interior designer to help ensure that attention to detail was put into every aspect of the interiors from the use of Herdwick wool carpets in the bedrooms through to polished concrete cupboard doors in the kitchen. The generously proportioned two en-suite bedroom deluxe accommodation reflects the attention to detail throughout. Ceramic tiled flooring in the hallway and living areas with under floor heating throughout ensuring comfortable temperatures. Each property has private terracing commanding breath taking panoramic views across the river and surrounding countryside.
