2 Bedroom Terraced House
Sympathetically constructed by local builder Robert Hughes, this community of homes sits between Windermere and Ambleside. The perfect spot for a holiday retreat.
Pass through the secure gates and along the driveway and park in Lake View’s own private parking bay.
Local Lakeland slate inscribed with ‘Lake View’ guides you to the front door. Inside, step through onto the hardwood floor. Ahead, an oak staircase, lined with a subtly striped carpet runner, tapers up to the first level. Housed beneath, a door opens to reveal a useful cloak cupboard; ideal for post-walk muddy boots.
Leftward leads you to your first bedroom. Spacious and tidy; built-in, mirrored wardrobes are neatly tucked away, leaving so much space for a king-sized bed. Mellow sunny tones decorate the walls, matched by soft sandy carpet and tied together by fresh white skirting.
The en-suite has square tiled walls that surround the contemporary shower, sink and toilet.
Now, take the oak staircase up to the first floor. A second set of stairs continues ahead, while to the left, up a step is a mini-mezzanine, ideal for a desk or telephone table.
Glazed double doors draw light through into the bright and spacious lounge. Room here for a large corner sofa and sideboard in addition to a coffee table. To the front, leafy views over to the Lake, landscaped gardens and distant hills greet you through the window.
Down two steps and into the highly contemporary dining-kitchen, fitted by a local Kendal-based firm. Corian worktops take pride of place, and storage is in plentiful supply thanks to the tailored cupboard space provided. A small utility area for all your cleaning equipment is on hand.
Light, bright and cheerful; a glazed corner feature provides glimpses into the hallway and fills the kitchen with light.
Love gadgets? Lake View is fitted with a bespoke Majik House smart lighting system, designed to enhance the atmosphere, relax the senses and reflect your mood.
Continue upward to the top level of Lake View, where this home truly makes good on its title.
Spacious and serene, Lake View’s second bedroom is cleverly designed with oodles of built-in storage helping maximise floor space.
Flush to the wall, a sleek fitted wardrobe lies to the left. Take the step up, leading to a tiered seating level by the broad window. From here you can enjoy the picturesque lake view. Even more storage is hidden beneath the window in neatly fitted draws and cupboards within the eaves.
Soft-toned buff carpets are offset by London stone coloured walls for a contemporary, chic, vibe.
Back in the hallway, more storage space is found in the linen closet, before reaching the family bathroom at the end of the landing.
Tiled in oatmeal, the bathroom is the place in which to splash out and relax. With toilet, sink, bath and overhead shower all in pristine condition, mirrored units are an indulgent convenience.
For a breath of fresh air, take the back door out onto the neat gravelled area before climbing the steps up to the elevated terrace backing onto a thicket of woodland.
At the end of the day, where better to unwind and relax than here? In the long summer evenings enjoy dinner al fresco with friends, with splendid views of Lake Windermere.
