  • Bedrooms: 3
Deceptively spacious Lakeland Cottage located on the fringe of the Lake District National Park (UNESCO World Heritage Site), having commanding views towards Ennerdale Lake, the surrounding countryside and the fells beyond.

Suitable for residential use, retirement or If you are looking for a Lakeland holiday home/bolthole for your own use or to let out, this could be the one for you!

The property has been sympathetically modernised/refurbished by the current owners to a high standard: from the wood burner, an original fireplace, oak floors, bespoke doors plus a detached garage with a secret garden beyond, which overlooks the fields and surrounding countryside - this property ticks so many boxes!

Oak entrance door leading into the hall giving access to the first floor. Step into the cosy sitting room, which has a Multi fuel stove, oak mantel, slate hearth, oak flooring and under stair cupboard. This leads to the 'open plan' lounge/dining kitchen: a wonderfully spacious room, 'the hub of the home', having oak units with complimentary 'Corian' worktops designed and fitted to make this living space both sociable and relaxing. The kitchen area has a range cooker, chimney style extractor, integrated dishwasher and washer/dryer, down lights, floor mounted combi boiler and 'Travertine' floor tiles. A bespoke oak stable door leads to the garage and garden. The lounge/dining area has oak flooring, an original hob grate fireplace with oak surround and slate hearth.

On the first floor landing you will find a handy shelved storage cupboard, the staircase to the second floor, two double bedrooms and a family bathroom. The double bedroom to the front of the property has a stunning view towards Ennerdale Lake, a feature fireplace, and a built-in storage cupboard. The rear double bedroom has open aspect over the fields and beyond, another built-in storage cupboard and feature fireplace.

The family bathroom has a modern white suite briefly comprising: bath with microphone shower attachment, 'rainfall' shower over, overflow bath filler tap, glass screen, 'Corian' shower panels, washbasin and a W.C in fitted storage units with complimentary 'Corian' work tops (the W.C is sensory/self-flushing and has a soft closing toilet seat), oak flooring, extractor, heated mirror light and chrome ladder radiator. Not many bathrooms have a view but this one does!

We leave the 'best to last'; take a look at the pictures and you will understand why ! The second floor bedroom is currently used as a lounge and has breath-taking views towards the Ennerdale Valley from the Velux windows - quite spectacular! Plus commanding views towards the countryside and beyond from the rear window.

There is a paved area off the external kitchen door leading to the detached garage (which has light, power and a remote-controlled roller/shutter door). Beyond the garage lies a beautiful enclosed garden, which is laid partly to lawn; perfectly planted with a variety of flowers and shrubs that are a riot of colour. A private space to enjoy the outdoors and take advantage of the view/open aspect from the paved patio area.

Early inspection is highly recommended as properties like this are hard to find.
