Property Description

Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Fell End Cottage occupies an enviable position to the eastern shores of Lake Windermere, close to Ghyll Head Tarn and just 3 miles south of the popular resort of Bowness. Reached by way of a private driveway, this desirable, detached home enjoys a gently elevated and tranquil woodland setting, with large mature gardens, ample parking and multi-car garaging and workshop. The main house dates from 1930 and was extended in recent times by the current vendors to include a rather interesting and rare eyebrow dormer to take full advantage of the fine views from the master suite. Deceptively spacious, Fell End Cottage offers the prospective purchaser a rare opportunity to re-model the current accommodation to their exacting requirements and create a fine, Lakeland retreat.

Nestling above the eastern shores of Windermere Lake, Fell End Cottage is conveniently placed for accessing the delights of the Lake District National Park but equally so for commuters wishing to have easy access to Junction 36 of the M6 (20 minutes drive) and the west coast rail link at Kendal. Manchester can be reached in 70 miles by car and London in less than 3 hours by train from Oxenholme station. Private schooling is available at Windermere or Sedbergh with successful and well supported primaries in nearby. Bowness and neighbouring Windermere offer a host of highly rated restaurants, bars and sporting facilities including shooting, fly fishing on the nearby tarn (by way of permit) golf and sailing.

Originally built in the 1930s, Fell End Cottage was sympathetically added to in the 1990s by way of a three storey extension and now presents as a spacious family home. Entrance by way of a central hallway leads right to the main social area of open plan living comprising a modern fitted kitchen with integrated appliances of fridge, freezer, dishwasher and electric range cooker beneath newly installed granite worktops. The seating area is well placed next to the Villager wood burner whilst French doors from the dining area lead out onto a sunny terrace. Three spacious and double bedrooms on the ground floor enjoy views out on to the garden and share a large, fully tiled bathroom with corner bath and separate shower cubicle, hand basin and wc. Beyond the sleeping accommodation sits the family lounge room with wood burning stove set in a stone surround and picture windows allowing for plenty of light and garden views. The first floor accommodation offers bedroom 4, a master suite with interesting layout and feature 'eyebrow' window offering a view across the garden to the woodland and tarn beyond. The adjacent family size bathroom has a corner, spa bath with separate shower cubicle, hand basin and wc. The second and substantial lounge room, again with wood burning stove also benefits from a covered balcony and ample windows from where to take in views of the gardens. The undercroft of Fell End Cottage, currently a games room allows for plenty of dry storage of sports or gardening equipment and also houses the boiler.

Fell End Cottage sits within mature, wooded grounds complimented by manicured shrubs and hedgerows and delightful seating areas enjoying both light and shade. The gardens are home to a variety of wildlife including a family of deer. A large, detached garage built by the vendors 6 years ago with electric up and over doors and adjacent workshop, offering off road and secure parking for up to 6 cars along with ample storage in the vaulted roof space. Further parking for vehicles or boats is available on the driveway.
