Built in the 1930s and extended in the 1980s, this bright detached country bungalow is perfect for holiday letting or for use as a weekend retreat away from the hustle and bustle of modern life and might particularly appeal to those looking towards enjoying an early retirement in this beautiful part of the Lake District National Park. The accommodation is nevertheless large enough to accommodate a growing family. With a variety of shops, a school, traditional Lakeland inns, cafes and restaurants all available in nearby Hawkshead, as well as beautiful walks and cycle rides readily accessible in the neighbouring Grizedale Forest and with the wildlife and fishing attractions on Esthwaite Water, there is something here for everyone. Clearly this lovely home offers a broad appeal above and beyond the obvious delights of the beautifully sunny setting and the views enjoyed.

The accommodation is all on one level and includes a splendid south facing, double glazed conservatory, perfect for year round use and offering delightful views, which offers access to a large dual aspect living room with a well proportioned family kitchen beyond.
