The Lake District National Park

With astonishing views of Blencathra and the surrounding fells and set in its own grounds of around one and a half acres incorporating lawns, a woodland garden and wildlife pond, Bridge End is a beautiful six bedroom detached period property, completely renovated, with garaging which lies within 5 miles of Keswick and around 14 miles from Penrith, the M6 and the West Coast mainline railway. It is a five minute walk from the thriving village of Threlkeld, with two pubs, post office and and a coffee shop which is open every day.

The new suite extends to over 40' (12.34m). It has a large master bedroom with an oak floor which enjoys stunning views to Blencathra; an adjoining and gorgeous bathroom with contemporary fittings and Vernon Tutbury sanitaryware - a freestanding Roca bath set in a solid cherry wood stand, Simpsons design view walk in shower cubicle with a Grohe wireless shower and his and hers washhand basins.

Next door there is a walk in dressing room and thence into the sixth bedroom a lovely double overlooking the front. There are two staircases, one at either side of the original house, giving convenient access to all parts.

In more detail, the dining kitchen has character exposed timbers and a bespoke pippy oak fitted kitchen, with black granite work surfaces and integrated fridge freezer and dishwasher; there is a Britannia six burner range cooker.

The kitchen and the main sitting room have porcelain tiled floors, whilst the second sitting room is located at 'half landing' level with an undercroft which provides extensive shelved storage.

Both sitting rooms have 8KW woodburning stoves within feature fireplaces.

Outside there is a double garage and boiler room which is also a utility room. The ground floor of the barn provides excellent storage which also houses a back up generator for electricity. There is a large workshop and a potting shed attached to this building. There is extensive parking for vehicles.

Gardens extend around the property, with a path leading into the woodland garden with its mature trees and underplanting - down to the wildlife pond which adjoins . At the rear are lawned gardens with those views to Blencathra.

Other Information

The property has access to high speed fibre broadband.

The main roof has integrated Worcester solar water heating panels controlled by a state of the art Steca controller. This automatically integrates the water heating from the boiler with that from the solar panels. The output of the panels is about 150Kw in each of the summer months.

The roof over the mezzanine sitting room has integrated Romag Powerglaz PV panels with a peak output of 2.88kw. These were installed in 2010, benefiting from the full PV tariff. This produces around £1000 per year tax free and is guaranteed to do so for the next 15 years. The tariff is automatically uplifted every year by the RPI rate of inflation.

The oil-fired central heating is controlled by zoned Danfoss wireless thermostats. There is a wireless watchman oil level indicator in the mezzanine lounge. The kitchen has electric plinth heaters controlled by a separate Danfoss thermostat. The upper floor of the barn is heated by electric Dimplex wall panel heaters controlled by a Dimplex four zone pilot wire programmer. Both of the ensuite bathrooms have electric underfloor heating with thermostatic controllers.
