'highlands', Arnside


Guide price

  • Bedrooms: 4
An imposing, late Victorian family home, built in 1899, situated in probably the most desirable location in Arnside. 'Highlands' is approached via a stone pillared driveway which provides ample parking for numerous vehicles. The beautifully proportioned family accommodation is arranged over three floors with the majority being arranged over the ground and first. Many of the original features remain in the property and have been lovingly maintained and restored by the current owners. The accommodation currently benefits from two large reception rooms on the ground floor and an impressive breakfast kitchen with the added benefit of a separate utility room and pantry. There are four bedrooms, the house bathroom and en-suite to the Master. On the second floor there are a further two areas, perfect for use as hobby rooms, a home office or separate accommodation for teenagers. The extensive accommodation is complemented by the beautifully landscaped gardens, stone-built workshop and newly refurbished large garage. There is also a fully functional outside W/C which negates the need to return inside when working in the garden or workshop. The gardens are truly magical with the tiered gardens directly to the rear of the property with areas laid to lawn and mature, well maintained borders. Moving further back into the garden you are transported into a totally different space. Surrounded by woodland, with lawns, mature beds and borders this area is tranquil and peaceful. A perfect space for a home office or studio. The elevated position of 'Highlands' allows spectacular views from the principal reception rooms and Master bedroom across the Estuary towards the Lake District Fells. 'Highlands' benefits from being located close to the village amenities without the noise or passing traffic making it a peaceful haven in the village. The local village shop is reached within a five-minute walk with Arnside promenade, shops and the beach less than a 10-minute walk. High Knott road offers fantastic access to Arnside 'Knott', reached in only several minutes. From here you can see panoramic views in the Estuary, Lakeland Fells and commonly, Highland cows walking past you.
