Wend along the road signposted ‘Windebrowe and Brundholme’ to find Scots Pine, a home hewn from the prestigious manor house formerly known as Old Windebrowe.
Prior to its conversion into five luxury houses, Old Windebrowe was most recently a hotel until the mid-1990s. Formerly the manor house was the family seat for the Spedding family, local Keswickian landowners.
Stroll through the lilac-blooming rhododendron hedges along the paved pathway to the front door.
Currently functioning as a holiday let, the key safe access by the front door is illuminated by the lighting above. Handy for those wishing to purchase Scots Pine and neighbouring Magnolia together in order to enjoy a lifestyle business in the heart of the Lake District.
Recently renovated to the highest standards, the entire of Scots Pine has been lovingly upgraded, tanked, lined, interlined and insulated, with all windows reconditioned. Inside, all new plumbing, radiators and electrics with inset LED spotlighting in each room await.
Half-glazed, light pours through the front door and into the heavy-duty matted entrance space, a practical area for de-robing and de-booting.
Descend the steps to find a wall of hanging space to the right, above the radiator. Ideal for warming coats and with ample space for boots underneath.
So much surface space and storage awaits in the stylish kitchen. Glossy, burgundy splashback covering gleams beneath the LED spotlighting and light flowing in through the newly-fitted casement window. Attractive laminate flooring extends underfoot.
Equipped with a fully-fitted Siemens oven and induction hob with touch screen programming, a Siemens washing machine, separate tumble dryer and Bosch dishwasher, everything you need to get cooking is on hand.
Step through to the dining area, featuring a large window overlooking the pretty cobbled which is part owned by Scots Pine.
Opening out into a welcoming L-shaped living room, sink down into the corner sofa, pop your drink on the coffee table and soak up the warmth from the new wood burner.
Traditional sash windows draw the eye, their original shutters lovingly restored to full working order.
Beneath the stairs, a substantial cupboard offers storage for linens, hoover, mop and all the cleaning essentials.
Take the elegant staircase up to the first floor. Designed for the modern home, the polypropylene carpet underfoot is so soft and easy to clean.
Admire the original Victorian oak bannister as it curves into the newel post at the top. Follow the turn on the stairs at the half landing, by the tall window, before arriving at the large, open landing…the ideal spot for an ornate light fitting. Such a grand feel for so quaint a cottage.
Splash, spritz and soak away your cares in the sumptuous bathroom ahead.
Formerly a bedroom, this space is now a grand bathroom featuring Jack and Jill sinks, beneath which lies an abundance of cupboard space.
Above an LED swipe-sensor mirror adds a touch of contemporary class, countered by the elegant and traditional sash window, drawing in natural light from outside.
Fibo tile-effect wipe-down wall coverings coat the walls behind the Mira drencher and hand-held showers, encased behind a glass shower screen, above the bath.
Warming the towels in style is an enormous, anthracite-coloured heated rail, with dual power control.
Step through to the right, into bedroom two. Such a peaceful space, featuring a modern, newly-fitted casement window with double glazing and a separate, traditional, original sash window overlooking Brundholme woods and Latrigg.
Very green, very peaceful, watch the scenes outside become bathed in the glow of the evening sun, filling the room and reflecting off the mirrored wardrobes.
A second, en-suite, bedroom awaits, replete with high vaulted ceiling and embellished with authentic exposed beams.
Overlooking the traditional cobbled yard below and over to the copper beech, the views are serene. To one side features a brand-new casement window, double glazed and cosy, drawing in so much light. On the other side, the original sash window provides an echo of times gone by.
A built-in cupboard provides hanging space, whilst the en-suite shower room is dainty and perfectly formed, with its own walk-in Kudos shower tray and cubicle. Entirely clad in Fibo tile-effect wall coverings it features a Mira drencher shower with hand-held attachment.
Heating the space to a toasty warmth is the contemporary dual-control anthracite grey towel rail. A handy wash basin with cabinet features a de-misting LED mirror above, whilst extra storage space can be found on the recessed shelf beneath the window.
Step outside to discover the verdant surroundings beyond the front door of Scots Pine.
Relax at the table and chairs on the raised, paved terrace. Enjoy the sun for a well deserved glass late afternoon and throughout the evening.
A climbing rose and flowering winter jasmine create a lush feel in this private and peaceful garden.
Sneak a peek at the useful shed. It has a raised concrete floor and is fully insulated with windows. Ideal for storage, this is a practical room.
At the top of the impressive communal gardens, sit within the walled garden and soak up views of Latrigg, Grisedale Pike and the westerly fells.
