5 bedroom detached house for sale

Low Melbecks House, Bassenthwaite, Keswick, Cumbria

Sold STC £700,000

Property Description

Full description

A detached house set in an area of peace and tranquility on the lower slopes of Skiddaw within a five minute drive of Bassenthwaite Village with pub and church, and 15 minutes north of Keswick, makes this an ideal retreat. This former farmhouse was totally modernised in 2002 to a high standard of comfort with underfloor heating throughout, triple glazing and dry-lined insulated walls.

The spacious accommodation has a flexible layout, with two staircases, that would readily convert into two properties. In addition, there is a home office, recently constructed to a high standard.

Low Melbecks is located over a gated single track, one of only two properties, some 120 mtrs from the road. The property benefits from views from almost every window over the quaint cottage style garden with meandering stream to the nearby Skiddaw and Ullock Pike and more distant views to Whinlatter and Grisdale Pike.

Early viewing is strongly recommended in order to appreciate not only this unique property that exudes a relaxing ambience, but the superb, tranquil location with views over the surrounding fields to the nearby fells.
