Property Description

Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Description: Built in 1937 this attractive stone and slate detached country property stands in just over three acres. It has an incredible south facing aspect with impressive views down to Arnside Knott and over the well tended gardens and surrounding countryside. The present owners have improved and extended the original layout creating a more flexible living space for all the family. Many original features have been retained including cornicing, a formal oak staircase, doors and flooring.

The gardens have formal and informal areas with paved terraces which make use of sun from early morning to sunset. The swimming pool has a pool house and terrace, and the greenhouse doubles up as a summer house with power and light.

There is gated access from the garden to the adjoining 2.36 acre field which is currently let on an Agricultural Grazing Agreement to local farmers with vacant possession being available from mid December 2019.

 

Location: Braithwaite is located in the pretty village of Crook within the Lake District National Park which has been awarded and recognised as a world heritage site. The property enjoys a rural location, a village pub, but is also only a few miles away from the amenities of Kendal, the attractions of Bowness and the main road network.

From Kendal proceed to the Plumgarths roundabout and take the B5284 signposted to Hawkeshead Via Ferry. After approximately two miles you will see the Sun Inn on your right, take the left turning onto Dolholme Hill and Braithwaite is the first property on the left.

From Bowness take the Kendal Road (A5074) out towards the Lyth Valley turning left at the junction onto the B5284 signposted Crook and Kendal. Continue along this road for just under four miles passing the Windermere Golf Club and The Wild Boar Hotel. With the Sun Inn on your left take the right turning onto Dolholme Hill and Braithwaite is the first property on the left.
