Location From Ambleside head north on the A591 signposted Grasmere, on reaching the village continue straight ahead at the mini roundabout and Low Fell can be found a little further along on the right hand side of the road. 

Description Built in 1965 but redesigned then redesigned again to create a wonderfully bright and perfectly balanced home, Low Fell enjoys unrivalled views West across the valley to Silver Howe and the iconic Helm Crag (The Lion and The Lamb) as well as the Easedale fells and Vale of Grasmere - not to mention glimpses of Grasmere Lake and backing onto Heron Pike - simply superb.

The bright accommodation includes a delightful West facing first floor lounge complete with a wood burning stove, large picture windows, a balcony and of course superb views. Double doors open to the adjoining stylishly fitted family kitchen making this the perfect home for entertaining or family get togethers. There are three double bedrooms on this upper level with the master bedroom having a luxury en-suite shower room. There is also a cloaks room and a house shower room whilst on the ground floor is a fourth bedroom again with an en-suite shower room as well as a useful utility room, cloaks, office/store (formally a further shower room) and a very useful undercroft/workshop with space for hobbies etc. There is a double garage as well as a large carport, plenty of car parking provision and turning space as well as lovely gardens to both the front and rear.

Well screened from the road, the gardens provide a lovely retreat providing privacy and views and are host to a variety of spectacular wildlife.

In a previous design the double garage provided two further bedrooms and the potential remains for this area to revert to provide additional living space if desired which might be considered perfect for an elderly relative or for working from home. The existing design however provides the ideal balance as it is, whether you are seeking a special family home, a wonderful weekend retreat or a much-in-demand larger holiday let. The superb setting is just a short stroll from the centre of Grasmere with a wide range of enticing walks accessible quite literally from the doorstep - not one to miss!
