Situated on a quiet cul-de-sac in a sought after area on the fringe of the popular Lakeland village of Bowness-on-Windermere this detached, elevated residence with stunning World Heritage views of the Lakelands Fells and Lake Windermere offers four bedroom family accommodation together with garage & carport, ample parking and fantastic gardens. Set in approximately 0.4 of an acre of mature gardens, enjoying panoramic views of Lake Windermere and beyond to the Western Lake District fells, Greenlands is a large detached residence originally built in the 1960's occupying an exclusive location in one of the Lake District's most sought after areas, between Storrs Park and Blackwell with nearby attractions including the shores of Lake Windermere, Motorboat club and the Arts and Crafts house at nearby Blackwell.
