Location On entering the village of Coniston from the direction of Ambleside, proceed through the centre of the village crossing over Church Bridge and continue along past the petrol station on your left before taking the right hand turn onto Station Road. Continue up the hill taking the second left hand turn onto Old Furness Road and then immediately right onto The Banks. Continue climbing the hill and Devonshire Terrace is the first stone built terrace of four cottages on your right hand side. There is allocated car parking provision for one vehicle to the left hand end of the terrace. 

Description This attractive terraced home was built in approximately 1860 by Lord Devonshire to provide very pleasant homes for the employees of the railway which at that time ran from Coniston on route to Broughton-in-Furness. This was the fireman's cottage. The railway has long since gone but these attractive stone and slate cottages continue to provide welcoming accommodation with truly outstanding views. It is perhaps the panoramic views that will attract todays modern buyer. Looking out over the valley to Coniston Water below and the Grizedale Forest beyond, flanked by the lower fells of the famous Coniston Mountain Range, this lovely home perhaps would make the perfect weekend retreat or holiday let on the edge of this popular Lake District village.

The accommodation includes an attractive lounge with superb lake views, a separate dining room, a kitchen in a rear extension together with a large store/utility room accessible from the rear yard. On the first floor are two double bedrooms and a bathroom. Access is currently gained via the rear bedroom to a large attic bedroom. It would be a relatively simple task to partition this access off for privacy, still leaving you with two good sized first floor bedrooms. The attic bedroom is large enough to be further sub-divided to provide four bedrooms in total if desired (subject to any necessary consents) as others along the terrace have done.

Outside is an easily managed fore garden with delightful views, a private enclosed yard and an all important car parking space.

The ingredients are all present and correct whether you are seeking a perfect holiday let, a superb lock up and leave retreat or an idyllic family home - come and see.
