The Property
Banks Point is nestled on the north west edge of Bassenthwaite Lake in the Lake District National Park and occupies a peaceful spot with incredible surroundings. The accommodation has been thoughtfully configured to place the main living space on the first floor to make the most of glorious views towards Bassenthwaite, Skiddaw, Ullock Pike, Sale Fell and Binsey. The flexible accommodation also provides the option of a ground floor annexe with separate accessible accommodation.

The pretty Lakeland slate porch leads to the hallway. Stairs rise to the first floor and the principal accommodation. The sitting/dining room stretches from front to back with truly inspiring views of Bassenthwaite. A woodburning stove sits on a slate hearth with feature oak mantel above. The galley kitchen is to the rear elevation with views over the garden and fields beyond. The kitchen is fitted with a range of wooden units with an integrated oven, hob with extractor over and space for a dishwasher and undercounter fridge. The principal bedroom is located on this floor with a large window framing the stunning views. There is an en-suite shower cubicle and a separate en-suite WC with wash hand basin.

Returning to the ground floor leads to a bedroom/office. This currently provides a spot to work from home in an inspiring environment. A bathroom also sits to one side of the hall. At the rear of the hall is access to the optional annexe with a door that can be closed off to create fully separate accommodation if required. A sitting room flows through to a dining area and on to a small but well-appointed kitchen. There is a bedroom with en-suite shower room. Doors from the dining area open to the patio and rear gardens.

A large attached garage sits to one side of Banks Point and there is ample driveway parking for a number of vehicles. Behind the garage is a utility area with power and water. To the front there is lawned garden with colourful border planting. The main gardens are to the rear. A flagged patio runs across the rear of the house with space for outdoor seating and a table. Beyond the patio is a lawned area and flower beds with two storage sheds positioned to one side.
