Property description

Tenure: Freehold

Description: Oakwood is a splendid family home that will appeal to different purchasers be it those seeking a home for all the family to live, work and play in, perhaps as their very own a bolt hole in the Lake District or even those seeking a property for the holiday letting market.

The current owners have with attention to detail created a well-planned, well balanced home which features open plan style living space with plenty of space for all the family. There are three bedrooms and three bathrooms on the ground floor together with a first-floor master bedroom suite and a guest suite both with dressing areas and bathrooms. Add on landscaped gardens, a detached garage, the parking and ready to move into condition and you get a home that is a must for your "to view list".

Location: Located between popular village of Staveley and the South Lakeland Market Town of Kendal, the property can be found from Kendal by taking the A591 to Windermere. On reaching Plantation Bridge you will see FAB Home Interiors retail shop on your right. Simply drive into the car park for the shop, keep to the right and Oakwood enjoys a discrete location to the rear behind the double gates ahead of you. The Kendal to Windermere branch line runs to the rear of the property.
The location is semi rural with plenty of countryside walks on the doorstep, yet rail links are a just short drive away from Kendal and Oxenholme from where you can be in London in under three hours and there is easy access to the M6 motorway, within a 10 minute drive to J36.

Kendal Town known as the 'Gateway' to the Lakes boasts a library, supermarkets, churches, a college, primary and secondary schools, banks and medical practices, as well as specialist artisan providers and independent traders. A leisure centre is located on the outskirts of the town, while a renowned venue for theatre, cinema, music and cultural events - The Brewery Arts Centre - is at the hub of Kendal's arts scene.

Staveley is a popular village located in the Lake District National Park at the foot of the stunning Kentmere Valley midway between the market town of Kendal and Lake Windermere, sitting just off the main A591, which is the main vehicular access into the southern regions of the Lake District National Park. The village is served by a railway linking it to both Oxenholme and Windermere, providing great national access. The Village enjoys a thriving community with a variety of shops, post office, primary school, churches and pub and the ever popular mill yard with its shops, cafe and the Hawkeshead Brewery.
