Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Located in the heart of the beautiful Ennerdale Valley, only a stones throw from Ennerdale Lake and the surrounding high fells in the quieter western Lake District, truly one of the country's most wild and stunning areas. Braemar is a comfortable, four bedroomed family home set within half an acre of mature gardens, with detached garage and off road parking.

The area provides the finest walking in England on some of Cumbria's highest and best known fells. Unsurprisingly, it is also noted as a place of romance with the banks of Ennerdale being where the former United States President Bill Clinton proposed to his wife Hillary in 1973. To the west of the lake is the small village of Ennerdale Bridge with a church, two inns and a thriving primary school. Cockermouth, a lovely old market town with strong Wordsworth associations, is some 12 miles distant and Whitehaven, an interesting and fine old sea port, is 9 miles distant.

Accommodation comprises large triple aspect lounge with open fireplace, kitchen, formal dining room, ground floor shower room, conservatory, four double bedrooms, bathroom and separate WC. Externally there is off road parking for several vehicles, a detached garage and beautiful mature gardens with a variety of perennials, trees and shrubbery.
