Priory Manor has been tastefully converted into seven separate dwellings. This dwelling occupies half of the former Victorian Gentleman's residence. The Grade II listed Gothic building occupies a fabulous elevated position facing west, and provides magnificent unrestricted views from all principal rooms and the private terrace across the well-managed gardens and grounds, Lake Windermere and to the distant Langdales and Coniston Old Man.

This unique property is on the market for the first time in 20 years, and has been updated by the current vendors yet retains the original listed features. These features include feature west-facing stone mullion windows, decorative doors and high ceilings with feature cornicing, period chandeliers, fireplace, mahogany panelling and an impressive staircase.

The well-proportioned living spaces extend over three floors with the ground floor hosting a dining room for formal entertaining, fitted kitchen with overhead storage, an impressive panelled drawing room with west-facing lake views and hall. Outside the wonderful private terrace which extends to the full width of the property is perfect for

The lower ground floor includes a double bedroom, equi-sized study room (potential additional bedroom) ideal for teenagers, shower room with dressing room, hall and boiler/drying room with storage. The first floor extends to a master bedroom suite featuring a bedroom fit for a king size bed, luxury en-suite and walk-in wardrobe, a hall featuring a cathedral ceiling to a second double bedroom with its own en-suite shower room and storage.

Complete with the property is the usage of the tranquil gardens and a lower field towards the Lake, which can be seen from the property and is often visited by wild deer. There are full access rights to the Lake from a track meandering by magnificent mature woodland and two fields. This leads to a private lakeside beach area from which boats may be stored and launched and a jetty from which the wildlife and lake tranquillity may be enjoyed.
