Property Summary

Wordsworths is an excellent and highly versatile seven bedroom, seven bathroom beautifully presented property with three reception rooms.

Full Details

Wordsworths is an excellent and highly versatile seven bedroom, seven bathroom beautifully presented property with three reception rooms.

The property offers excellent proportioned accommodation spread over four floors with lovely fell views, private parking and delightful manageable garden to the rear. Equally suitable as a lovely home, business or a holiday letting property. We believe it could generate approximately £150,000 per annum in this most sought after of Lakeland towns.

Tastefully finished throughout, including the kitchen which was installed three years ago by Panaramer as well as installing three new en suite shower rooms. The property has been extended and reconfigured over the years including a lovely private sitting room at the rear of the house designed to enjoy the view and opening onto the bright sunny terrace. Many of the original features have been retained in this substantial property which is set out over four floors and gives flexibility for a variety of uses and layouts. The present vendors currently operate a three bedroom guest house for which trading figures can be seen for genuinely interested parties.

Prominently located on Lake Road, it is in an enviable situation for residents, only a short level walk into the centre of Ambleside. There is the valuable asset of private parking together with an attractive garden and a good size terrace which enjoys a sunny aspect and excellent views over the town to Todd Crag and the Fairfield Horseshoe. There is a wide choice of shops, well regarded restaurants and cafes within a few minutes walk as well as a wide range of country and fell walks straight from the doorstep, Lake Windermere is approximately half a mile.
