Full Details

Wansfell is a stunning, luxury apartment originally part of a former gentleman’s residence situated in a quiet position looking out over the beautiful manicured communal gardens with views in the distance of the Langdale fells as a backdrop. Just a short stroll from the centre of Windermere, this is a true rarity for such a modern apartment in such a sought after location.

This stylish apartment has been recently refurbished using both unlimited high end fixtures and fittings and attention to detail which is second to none. The apartment has been well planned with plenty of space throughout offering an open plan living space, two double bedrooms, one with ensuite, and a family bathroom. The views of the fells in the distance can be enjoyed from all the front rooms and the lovely kept communal gardens open for all residents to enjoy. Furthermore the property also boasts two private parking spaces. The quiet yet convenient location of the apartment will appeal to a range of buyers, from those looking for a lock up and leave holiday home, holiday let or indeed a stylish permanent home. This sale includes all furnishings and future bookings associated to the apartment.

Located just on the outskirts of the main hustle and bustle of Windermere village, Wansfell 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. A short bus ride or manageable walk brings you to the waterfront and the Lake Districts ‘honeypot destination’, Bowness-On-Windermere. Practically, you are also just a 5 minute drive to the A592 so it’s a great area for those who are looking to commute or for an easily accessed holiday home.

Through the main entrance into a vast and spacious communal hallway, then take the ornately carved and comfortably carpeted staircase up to the first floor to the doorway to Wansfell. A large and welcoming hallway, underfoot, oak parquet flooring catches the light from the sash window at the end and spotlighting above. A sumptuously sized, living-dining-kitchen area. Openplan yet somewhat separated by the natural lines of the building, this entire space has a slight New York loft apartment feel. Slate toned walls feature a large set of sash windows, which open to an ornamental balcony with wrought iron balustrade to the front, featuring a traditional weathervane. Central to the room is a wood-burning stove with an exposed stone lintel above. A kitchen nestled to the far right of the room offering all Lamone integral appliances including integrated Oven, induction hob, with extractor, dishwasher and Fridge Freezer. Contemporary base units in navy blue contrast superbly with the white marble work tops. Tucked off the open plan living space, a comfortable dining area, which could also be used as a snug, enjoys an element of privacy away from the conviviality of the main room; fitted with a traditional radiator, it overlooks the side through a window.

The plush master bedroom has a large bay window that floods with light. Luxurious feel with an inviting grey carpet, this is a spacious bedroom suitable for a super-king-size bed. Enjoy views of the leafy trees and grounds to the front. Off the hallway there is a traditionally themed Victorian bathroom. White metro tiles clad the walls surrounding the bath which is fitted with Burlington style taps and shower head attachment. There is a rainfall shower above too. High ceilings contain inset spotlights, while a traditional high-cistern WC has a pull-flush for authenticity. The second double bedroom, located at the front of the property and overlooking the lush green of the trees and lawn and fells beyond. Spacious and carpeted in plush grey, ample space for a king-size bed . The ensuite shower room is clad in the same tiling as the family bathroom with a broad sink with vanity unit storage beneath and traditionally floor-mounted WC.

Outside there are delightful manicured communal gardens and two private allocated parking spaces.
