Full description

Tenure: Leasehold

Location Loughrigg Avenue is located off Lake Road and it is a reasonably level walk from the village centre.

From the centre of Ambleside head south as if proceeding towards Windermere and shortly after passing the petrol filling station on the left hand side the turning for Loughrigg Avenue is found on the right hand side before reaching Hayes Garden World.

Lancaster Court is located immediately on the left and there are two car parking spaces serving this welcoming apartment.  

Description Lancaster Court is an attractive traditional stone built property located on the southern fringe of the popular small Lakeland market town of Ambleside which is particularly well served by a wide variety of highly regarded shops, restaurants, cafes, cinemas, a bank, post office, churches and traditional inns - all just a short level stroll away. The town is surrounded by the most wonderful Lakeland scenery, from Lake Windermere to the south up to the high fells in the north.

This delightful two bedroomed apartment is tucked away on the ground floor and fronts onto Loughrigg Avenue in part and also has a lovely southerly aspect enjoyed not only from the charming sitting room and the small conservatory but also from the private and very pretty garden.

The accommodation is tastefully presented and includes an attractive hallway with feature timber work, a kitchen with a cooker, hob etc., two bedrooms, with an en-suite shower to the master bedroom, and a house wc. There is invaluable car parking space although, with all the amenities of Ambleside and the beautiful surrounding countryside so close, the fortunate owner may find that the car is seldom needed!

Ideal as a permanent home, retirement apartment or weekend retreat, Lancaster Court benefits from the security of knowing that none of the four properties here can be commercially holiday let which ensures that the peaceful setting is never disturbed by a constant stream of ever changing neighbours.

This is an excellent opportunity in a popular, quiet yet convenient location and early viewing is recommended.
