2 Bedroom Terraced House
Welcome to the unique development of Merewood Lodge, tucked discreetly back from the A591, perfectly poised between Windermere and Ambleside.
Meander up quiet Mirk Lane for 100 metres before arriving at the gated wall surrounding your complex for total security. Come on in.
Amidst a cosy cluster of quaint bungalows, larger residences and terraces, make your way past the pristine front greenery to your personal parking bay outside Rigg Rise. An additional visitor car park is on hand for family and friends.
Take a moment to appreciate the serenity and security here at Rigg Rise; a fantastic bolt-hole for weekends and holidays, safely tucked away in its own secure grounds.
Step through onto luxury Amtico tiling and admire this light and airy entrance hall. Stash your shoes and coat in the cloak cupboard beneath the stairs, before following the gilded polish of the oak staircase to the first floor.
Light streams into your open-plan, split-level living space through the large front window. Such an inviting place; sink down into your comfy sofa and enjoy dazzling views to the west and Lake Windermere.
Neutrally decorated in crisp white and creamy nudes, this living space is ready to host and entertain.
Two carpeted steps lead to your dining level; a family dining table partitioned from the kitchen by a small breakfast bar. For that added touch of elegance, mood lighting allows you to create the perfect ambience.
Whether your standard is Masterchef or Ready, Steady, Cook – your Amtico-floored fitted kitchen is chock full of space and storage to aid your culinary endeavours.
An overhead skylight illuminates the grain of your elegant beech-fronted cupboards, alongside contemporary plinth lighting. Secreted into your plentiful units, uncover a range of spotless integrated appliances including a double oven, microwave, fridge-freezer, dishwasher and washer-dryer. So much convenience tucked away.
Concealed beneath the stairs, a useful cupboard is on hand for all your additional storage needs.
Rigg Rise leaves you spoiled for choice, revealing two grand en-suite bedrooms. Downstairs, a broad bedroom, swathed in light from its two windows overlooking the colourful planting and bushes to the front.
Minimalist Nordic-style furnishings, including a cosy bed and wooden dresser, make this capacious bedroom a firm guest and visitor favourite. Plenty of room for your walking gear in the double-wardrobes, fitted flush into the wall recess for ‘clean line’ living.
Soft posy-hues glimmer through the pristine tiling of your en-suite, as warmth emanates from the heated towel rail. Enjoy a refreshing spritz in the shower, following your adventures ambling around Troutbeck.
Take the high-quality oak, open staircase to the uppermost level to discover your penthouse master suite. Another vast and cosy space. From your deep-set dormer window, the communal gardens and fields below unfurl for your viewing pleasure. Best of all, throughout the dramatic seasonal changes, you have your own private opera-box view of Lake Windermere and its surrounding fells.
Stash your clothes in the abundantly sized double wardrobes, so much storage is secreted away here. Why not use the recessed eave space as your deluxe dressing room?
Through now into your en-suite bathroom, where a sparkling white tub, with shower attachment, is on hand to soak those aching muscles. More neutral and tasteful tiling graces the walls, and a heated rail keeps your fluffy towel toasty warm.
From your top floor, a hallway brimming with light leads to the back door, opening out to your rear garden. Set back into the hillside, Rigg Rise enjoys spectacular elevated views over Lake Windermere and its surrounding fells from the top terrace.
Take the steps up to the decking for the best views. Relax, in the hot summer months, in your secluded suntrap, amidst this low-maintenance country hillside garden. Where better to enjoy a rosy sunset over the water with a glass of wine?
At the zenith of the terrace, your garden meets the local woodland.
Rigg Rise also enjoys the manicured wider grounds of Merewood Lodge, impeccably maintained by Ambleside’s own Hayes Garden World.
Visiting children can play out in safety within the walled communal grounds, amongst the many lawns, large trees and shrubs.
Why not explore the plethora of walks on your doorstep? Seated just off the A591, you are perfectly placed to explore Ambleside, Rydal Water, Grasmere, the Langdale Valley and beyond.
Families can enjoy the neighbouring National Park Visitor Centre at Brockhole. Explore its extensive grounds leading down to the lake shore; with a wealth of activities for young and old alike there is fun to be had for all.
