This beautiful residence, dating from pre 1900, has been sensitively restored by the present owner to provide modern, comfortable living whilst sympathetically blending the original traditional building.

To the first floor there are four well appointed bedrooms, two complete with en suite shower rooms, another with a walk in wardrobe which has plumbing to be used as an additional en suite, a study which could be used as a further bedroom and family bathroom. All the bedrooms to the front aspect enjoy fabulous views of Bassenthwaite Lake and out on to the fells beyond.

The property is situated just beyond the Lake District village of Bassenthwaite, occupying a tucked away position and giving stunning panoramic views of the Skiddaw mountain range and across Bassenthwaite Lake to the north western Lake District fells. Bassenthwaite Lake lies equidistant some seven miles from both Keswick and Cockermouth with easy transport access via the A66.

Mains electricity and water. Septic tank drainage. Biomass central heating and double glazing installed. Telephone line installed subject to BT regulations. Please note - the mention of any appliances and/or services within these particulars does not imply that they are in full and efficient working order.
