Tenure: Freehold

Location From the centre of Ambleside take the right hand turning at the mini roundabout at the Northern end of the town and head up The Kirkstone Pass. At the junction at the very top of this road, on The Kirkstone Pass itself, turn left at the Kirkstone Pass Inn and follow the road down past Brotherswater and Patterdale and on towards Glenridding. Just before reaching the village you will see the Mountain Rescue base on the right hand side and just after that, before the signpost for Glenridding itself, turn right over Grisedale Bridge and follow this lane into a courtyard. Lower Grisedale Lodge and Grisedale Lodge is then seen on the right hand side with car parking provision in the carport on the left. There is further car parking available within the plot to the east of Lower Grisedale Lodge. 

Description Grisedale Lodge combines a quiet secluded location with stunning mountain scenery and easy access to Ullswater lake and the villages of Glenridding and Patterdale. Lower Grisedale Lodge (the 3 bedroomed ground floor apartment) and Grisedale Lodge (the 5 bedroomed maisonette) are spacious, self contained cottage style homes which would be perfect as two holiday rentals or as a lovely family home with a holiday rental or a spacious granny flat - a superb opportunity.

Perfectly placed in the beautiful Ullswater valley and quietly tucked away from the main thoroughfare. This is the ideal opportunity for anyone seeking a highly desirable ready made property portfolio as both have immense appeal to the holiday-let market with obvious potential to serve the growing demand for extended family or group holidays. This bright and spacious stone built property would equally work as a permanent home and an independent holiday let.

Lower Grisedale Lodge is a delightfully bright self contained three bedroomed ground floor apartment which includes a large hall, dining kitchen, living room, conservatory, three bedrooms, a bathroom, two parking spaces and beautiful gardens with views. Grisedale Lodge is also self contained and occupies the two storeys above and includes a splendid lounge with a balcony, a family kitchen, five bedrooms and four bathrooms or shower rooms. Grisedale Lodge also has two further car parking spaces and both properties benefit from the current availability of the use of an overspill car parking area which is utilised on a neighbourly basis at present.

The gardens would easily sub-divide to provide privacy and convenience for both.

Enjoying superb views of the surrounding fells and glimpses of the lake these two properties could hardly be better placed to enjoy all that the Lake District has to offer. A short stroll takes you down to the Lake Shore or to the village centre where there are a variety of highly regarded Lakeland inns and cafes and a selection of shops. For the more energetic the high fells including the world famous Helvellyn range are similarly accessible on foot quite literally from the doorstep.

The property offers exceptionally adaptable accommodation throughout and is highly recommended for early viewing.
