Full description

Tenure: Leasehold

Location Situated in a convenient central village location, this lovely apartment can be reached on foot from our Ambleside office by heading for the centre of the village and the entrance is found on the right hand side immediately after "Ye Olde Friars" confectionary shop, opposite the White Lion Hotel. The rear of the property can also be accessed from St. Marys Lane. 

Description This wonderful apartment offers superbly bright and well balanced accommodation which has been transformed over recent years to create a stylish yet comfortable home. Blending that popular combination of modern luxury with traditional Lakeland features, this is a holiday let which is much in demand.Thoughtfully re-designed and tastefully brought right up to date this unique apartment enjoys something like a 96% occupancy rate for holiday letting and of course rave reviews, and it is not difficult to fathom why.

Approached via a communal staircase and landing, the private hallway gives access to a lovely open plan living room with a fitted kitchen and breakfast area. The master bedroom includes the luxury of a freestanding roll top bath, perfect for relaxing after a day on the fells or a busy week at work. The second bedroom also contains a super king size bed, and there is a modern shower room. There is an allocated car parking space at the rear of the building, held on a ten year lease at a rental of just £89 per month - a rare and very handy asset.

As locations go, the centre of Ambleside is a difficult one to beat. Whether your interest lie primarily with hiking the beautiful fells which surround this bustling Lakeland village, taking a stroll down to the lake shore (where a passenger ferry can transport you to any one of a number of delights around the impressive lake Windermere) or simply ambling down to a local hostelry, dining at a highly regarded restaurant or visiting one of the many cinema screens, everything you might require for a relaxing break is virtually on your doorstep. And yet No1 could also be a wonderful permanent home for those who would value such comfort and convenience in the heart of the Lake District National Park.

An exceptional holiday let, this unique apartment is highly recommended for early viewing.
