Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Location Ambwray enjoys a superb location close to the centre of Ambleside. From the village centre head as if towards Windermere on Lake Road and once this part of the one way system becomes two lanes get in the right hand lane and turn right immediately after 'Lakes Lodge' Guest House and through the parking area onto the private road which bears right and Ambwray is then found on the right hand side. Alternative access can be made via the Lake Road Public Car Park.  

Description This lovely detached true bungalow could hardly be better placed for convenient access to the very heart of pretty Ambleside- its variety of shops, restaurants, cafes, cinemas and inns are all virtually on the doorstep and yet Ambwray enjoys a delightfully peaceful setting tucked quietly away from the main thoroughfares on a small private road with just two other bungalows for company.

Its central location also affords surprisingly good westerly views looking over the village and St Marys Parish Church to the fells beyond and the Fairfield Horseshoe making this the perfect home whether you are looking for an idyllic retirement or a splendid holiday let (perhaps even with a view to future retirement?) in the beautiful Lake District National Park.

The accommodation is well balanced and thoughtfully designed having been extended in the past and includes a recessed porch, an entrance hall, a lovely dual aspect sitting room facing south and west and having views of St Mary's Church and the fells beyond. There is a separate dining room which leads on to the kitchen extension which is nicely fitted and there are three well proportioned bedrooms as well as a four piece bathroom.

There is a side garage and a large utility/workshop which was added originally as an artists studio. This room could readily be incorporated in the main living space if desired (subject to any necessary consents) but is the perfect spot for hobbies, workshop space, home office or whatever takes your fancy. The gardens provide a lovely feature and are a real sun trap and again offer some delightful views. All in all this is a very rare opportunity to acquire a delightful true bungalow in a very convenient location and viewing is highly recommended.
