Conveniently accessed off the A590 at Newby Bridge, with its speedy links to Kendal and motorway connections beyond, Hollin Bank sits at the gateway to Lake Windermere.
Make your way down a private lane and onto the large gravel driveway of Hollin Bank where a sense of space and separation is instantly felt, behind a screen of mature trees and rolling emerald lawn. A natural garden, tall woodland trees to the periphery are a haven for wildlife, home to indigenous red squirrels.
Ample parking is available, alongside a detached double garage, with further potential for development.
Designed and built in the 1960s, Hollin Bank has remained in the same family since its construction and is brimming with the potential to maximise its footprint to create a contemporary home in a convenient setting on the cusp of all the Lake District has to offer.
Make your way inside, into the bright entrance hall where sliding doors reveal cupboard space ideal for storing coats and shoes. A large window looks out to the gardens - which wrap around the home in a comforting blanket of green.
Open the glazed door on the left, entering the dining room, where garden views are prevalent once more through a wide window, filling the room with light. Directly situated between the lounge and kitchen, the dining room serves as the heart of the home; a place for family to join and swap stories at mealtimes. Why not consider opening the dining room up to create a modern family space for cooking, dining and living?
Flowing off from the dining room is the lounge, a divinely light room, with garden views to three angles. A relaxing room, heated by the natural glow of an open fire set within a surround, snuggle up in wintertime, and open the French doors in summertime to soak up the sunshine on the patio, elevated above the capacious, rolling lawns of the garden.
Returning to the dining room, take another door out to a hallway, leading across to the kitchen. Tiled underfoot and extending to the right, wood cupboards and drawers provide plenty of storage, with ample worktop space, whilst essential appliances include a Neff induction hob, oven, grill and microwave, with fitted fridge and dishwasher. Above the sink, a window captures verdant views out over the garden.
Significantly, an internal window looks through into the dining room, serving as a reminder of the potential to open up both rooms to create a spacious, modern, cooking-dining room, brimming in light and basking in garden views. Tucked off the kitchen is a handy utility room, again accentuating the available space with which to create your own contemporary culinary hub at Hollin Bank. Furnished with further cabinetry, plumbing for a washing machine and dryer and access out to the detached garage, there is also a downstairs WC off this area.
From the hallway, a set of stairs leads up to an upper floor, where there is abundant space for a games room or home office. Illuminated by Velux windows and brimming in eaves storage, the area naturally zones into two distinctive spaces, separated by a central shower room. In the shower room, a large Velux window draws light through, with louvred storage cupboards, a shower, wash basin and WC.
Next, currently used as a bedroom, arrive at a room with access out to a balcony overlooking the garden. Ideal as an office or games room, this upper floor adds flexibility and versatility to Hollin Bank.
Returning downstairs, make your way along the hallway before discovering the family bathroom, tiled to the walls and featuring a bath, with separate shower alongside a wash basin. There is also a heated towel rail and window, looking out to the garden. The WC is accessed separately, next door, alongside a wash basin.
Looking out over the driveway is bedroom two, carpeted in cream underfoot and with floor to ceiling built-in wardrobes to one wall.
A Tardis-like home, revealing its scope room by room, continue along the hallway to arrive at the main bedroom, brightly lit by natural light flowing in through a large window overlooking the garden to the front. Built-in cupboards offer ample storage.
Next to the main bedroom, the snug lounge again features fitted storage, with a large window framing views out to the garden and a second door reconnecting the room to the entrance hall. In its current form and flow, Hollin Bank offers pockets of privacy and social spaces, yet there is abundant potential to create a home of open plan living, designed around your family's style of life. Consider, for instance, the potential to open up the snug and entrance hall to create a lobby area with redesigned stairs up to the first floor. The malleable potential of Hollin Bank is inspirational.
Outside, the sublime surroundings of Hollin Bank create a bubble of nature separating this Lakeland home from the wider world.
To the front a large area of lawn is bordered by mature, tall trees and shrubs, awash with colour in springtime when the rhododendrons bloom. Typical of the Lake District, this natural garden rises and falls in gentle hilly fashion, perfect for Easter egg rolling, winter sledging and children's adventures.
With plenty of space to store a boat toward the bottom of the garden, near the woodland, make the most of Hollin Bank's close proximity to the foot of Lake Windermere.
Wrapping around the home, explore the pathways through the garden and woodland, building dens, playing hide and seek and enjoying a sense of freedom rarely experienced in modern society.
The dense woodland and rocky outcrops combine to create a buffer between Hollin Bank and life beyond.
A home with great bones, Hollin Bank is a haven of relaxation so close all that Lake Windermere and its surrounding towns and villages have to offer. With such potential to create your dream home, book your viewing today.
