Beck Island is a three-storey property suitable as a family residence or holiday home - but if you’re searching for a business proposition then it would certainly be worth a look.

Thanks to its location in the perennially popular and picturesque village of Grasmere, Beck Island could be a holiday let, with local holiday cottage operators suggesting it could bring in £35,000 to £40,000 a year.

Highlights of the home, which has a private gated entrance, include an open-plan airy downstairs layout, two en-suite bedrooms, a lovely terrace overlooking the River Rothay towards St Oswald’s Church and private parking.

A front door leads into a large dual-aspect living room with feature fire and river views. Doors lead out to the riverside terrace and an attractive open oak staircase rises to the first floor.

The dining kitchen - an impressive 24t by 18ft – boasts a quality Amtico heated floor, contemporary cabinets with granite worktops and a breakfast bar and there’s also a utility/cloakroom.

Upstairs a wide landing is lit by two Velux windows and has bespoke inset oak shelving. Doors open to the two en-suite double bedrooms, both with river views and wardrobes, and the house bathroom.

The third double bedroom on the top floor has views over the church and towards Silver How fell.

Beck Island, Stock Lane, Grasmere, is for sale at £650,000 from Matthews Benjamin, tel: 015394 32220.
