Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Location Situated in a convenient central village location, with local shops and amenities within a short walk. On foot from our Ambleside office, head for the centre of the village, passing Tesco, and the entrance can be found on the right hand side immediately after Friars luxury chocolate shop. The rear of the property can also be accessed from St. Marys Lane. 

Description Perfect as a lock up and leave weekend retreat or holiday let which is easily and economically run, this very pleasing apartment is superbly placed at the very centre of Ambleside in the beautiful Lake District National Park.

With an excellent selection of shops, restaurants, traditional Lakeland Inns, banks, cafes and of course cinemas all virtually on the doorstep, and with Lake Windermere and the high fells which surround the village also readily accessible on foot quite literally from the threshold, the appeal of this surprisingly bright home is easy to see.

The sitting room and the double bedroom both enjoy lovely westerly views across the slate roofs of Ambleside below, beyond the parish church spire to Loughrigg whilst the recently re-fitted kitchen looks up to the dramatic backdrop of the Fairfield Horseshoe - both surprisingly open views given the convenience of this village centre location. The property benefits also from a private car parking space rented separately at the cost of £70 per month.

Ambleside is increasingly becoming the hub of the Lake District National Park being centrally positioned whilst still remaining quiet enough to provide a welcoming and relaxing atmosphere.

An inviting apartment in a splendid location and is highly recommended for viewing.
