Elegant and spacious single-storey property, close to Near Sawrey, set in a four-acres of gardens, with great views of the surroundings.
Situated near the delightful hamlet of Near Sawrey, this is a spacious, single-storey property nestling in a unique spot with panoramic views over Esthwaite Water, and with easy access to the fells. It’s such a magical location that Beatrix Potter herself bid for this house as its views are quite inspirational. Two miles away is Hawkshead, one of the prettiest villages in the Lake District, and ideally situated between Coniston Water and Lake Windermere. Ambleside, Coniston, Grizedale and Grasmere are within easy reach, and Windermere and Bowness are a short ferry ride away.
Access to the property is via a quiet track lane, on entering this beautiful secluded cottage, offering single-storey accommodation, you will find yourself in the welcoming and cosy first lounge with an electric fire and plenty of seating. Exploring further you will find an attractive second lounge with a TV, DVD, open fire and large French windows with fantastic views. The delightful kitchen/dining room is ideally situated and beautifully designed for sociable dining. The stylish and elegant kitchen is equipped with everything you may need including an electric oven and hob, fridge/freezer, microwave and dishwasher. The washing machine and tumble dryer can be found in the laundry/utility room. You will also find three comfy bedrooms: one double, one twin room (with twin singles which can be made up into a super-king-size on request), and a bunk bedroom. The bathroom is complete with shower over the bath, and there is also a shower room with WC. Parquet floors and rugs run throughout the house and these, along with the many interesting original features (such as high ceilings) and the collection of antique furniture, create a very special home with real character. Immediately adjacent to the main house you will encounter a pretty summerhouse which has been converted into two rooms linked by an external covered walkway (with wheelchair access). The first is a cosy twin bedroom, and the other is a large wetroom complete with shower and WC.
Stepping outside, you can relax on the veranda which runs along the front of the property with a table and benches, and is perfect for soaking up the glorious views whatever the weather. Beyond that, there are four acres of grounds to explore and enjoy. There is space to park three cars next to the house.
