Expect an immediate sense of arrival as you take in the valley view and appreciate this fine Lakeland stone and slate house. An exceptionally fine home with 5 bedrooms, occupying 1 acre of the National Park.

A classic Victorian country house dating circa 1874, located within the desirable Lake District National Park and conveniently positioned for the A590, south of Grizdale Forest between Lake Coniston and Lake Windermere.

Full of character and contemporary comforts the property is entered by a traditional porch leading into the hallway with original cornice and around to the kitchen, utility room and rear porch. The beautiful shaker style family kitchen is wonderfully warmed by an Aga and the large practical utility room houses the modern boiler. The spacious lounge dining room's natural focal point is the West Cumbrian red sandstone fire surround with log burner and leads to the garden room, a modern addition in 2004, that takes in the garden, valley and distant Coniston fell views and is warmed by underfloor heating. The living room, enjoys bright natural light from the large bay window and the retained character continues with an original fire and surround.

Upstairs to 4 grand bedrooms with the master bedroom enjoying the best views in the house from the bay window and a en-suite shower room. The further 3 bedrooms are all good size double rooms perfect for family or guests alike but the 5th bedroom on the second floor has privacy and an adjoining room perfect as a dressing room, potentially an en-suite but currently used as a retreat and games room.

The property sits beautifully in within a plot approximately 1 acre in size. The primary lawns are positioned to enjoy the views and will enjoy the sunshine all day long. Gravel paths lead to the paved patio and summer house with a small orchard to the side. The gravel driveway provides ample off road parking and behind the house is a courtyard where can be found some extremely useful outbuildings. A traditional Lakeland stone wall encapsulates this simply first class home.
