Location On entering the village of Coniston from the direction of Ambleside, proceed through the centre of the village crossing over Church Bridge. After passing the petrol station on the left hand side, take the next turning on the right onto Station Road. Continue up the hill bearing left and take the second turning on the left on to Old Furness Road and then immediately right on to The Banks. Continue a short distance climbing this hill and Hilltop will be seen on the right hand side standing back from the road in an elevated position. There is car parking provision in front of the garage. 

Description Hilltop is one of those properties that you almost approach whilst looking the other way. The view is so utterly captivating that it really does draw all of your attention, if only initially. Immediately upon crossing the threshold, one cannot then fail to be impressed at how this wonderful home has been so carefully designed as to take full advantage of its wonderful location. Even the entrance hall, with its glazed double doors, offers outstanding views which are immediately trounced by those enjoyed from the adjoining sitting room. The large picture window (and what a picture!) has been thoughtfully designed with a low sill, which allows the view to be fully enjoyed from the comfort of the fireside armchair. The conservatory, which is somewhat under-sold by that title as it is in truth a lovely second reception room, enjoys similarly breath-taking views gazing out over the lake to Grizedale Forest beyond. The family kitchen was stylishly refitted in 2013 and is supplemented not only by a spacious and well-equipped utility room, but also by a very useful rear porch / boot room, the benefits of which may perhaps only be fully appreciated after a long and possibly wet day on the fells.

All four double bedrooms enjoy superb mountain and lake views. The master bedroom is virtually a suite in itself, with plenty of space for seating and relaxation, and enjoys a luxurious four piece en-suite bathroom. There is a second en-suite shower room to the third bedroom and a lovely modern house shower room, as well as a cloaks room and an integral garage with plenty of workshop or storage space and a very useful home office, study or fifth bedroom alongside.

There are lovely gardens with patios and lawns and plenty of car parking provision and space for all of the family. Whilst this is perhaps the perfect family home, Hilltop would equally suit as a superb holiday let or weekend retreat, being located just a short stroll away from the centre of Coniston below which offers a variety of traditional Lakeland inns selling locally brewed ale, shops, cafes, restaurants and of course a school, as well as the wonderful facilities on the lake, all of which are surrounded by the sensational Lakeland scenery.

This thoughtfully designed and beautifully presented home, which enjoys unrivalled views, is highly recommended for early viewing.
