Full description

Tenure: Freehold

An excellent opportunity to purchase a three double bedroom character home set in the National Park and offering spacious accommodation which could be used as a permanent home or holiday let. Ample parking means it could easily accommodate a boat or motorhome. Enclosed gardens. EPC: E

High Brow Edge Cottage started out as a stone and slate barn which stood adjacent to High Brow Edge Farm. It was converted during the early part of the 1970's and was more recently added to during the last 16 years. It now forms a lovely three bedroom home and stands in landscaped gardens. The accommodation is spacious and bright and is very well-maintained by the current owners. Fully double glazed and centrally heated, there is ample parking space to the front of the property and scope to erect a garage within the grounds if required. The accommodation is mainly arranged over one level with the advantage of a double bedroom upstairs. Suitable for permanent or part-time occupation and well worth an early interior inspection.

Travelling along the A590 in a westerly direction, passing Newby Bridge. At the mini roundabout continue straight ahead passing the Newby Bridge Hotel continuing to Backbarrow. The turn into Brow Edge Road is on the left hand side which then becomes Low Brow Edge and High Brow Edge. High Brow Edge Cottage can be found on the right hand side before Bigland Hall Equestrian.

Backbarrow is a small village in the southern Lake District, situated near to the A590 which provides excellent access to nearby Ulverston, Kendal and Barrow. Also convenient for Bowness, Windermere and Ambleside, with the foot of Windermere only a few short miles away. As its name suggests High Brow Edge Cottage is set high up above the rest of the village, and can be viewed from the end of the garden (a better view in winter with no leaves on the trees!).
