Amberwell: a special retreat or a warm family home. Above all, somewhere to create memories, and to fill with love and laughter.
In the heart of the Lakes, snuggled into green meadows, overlooking the sparkling waters of Windermere, lies Amberwell. Unexpectedly only a stroll from the cosmopolitan centre of the Lakes – Bowness-on-Windermere.
Step up the slate steps of the terrace, to the grand entrance, pausing a moment to take in the views of the lake, wrapping around Storrs Park, this most elite area of Windermere.
Through the heavy wooden front door and into the light-filled lobby. On your left through double glass-panelled doors is one of the most enormous living rooms we’ve ever seen. The comfy sofas cluster around the log-burner, for cosy evenings in, whilst sitting in the bay window looking out over the lake is the perfect spot to wile away an afternoon, over an engrossing book or absorbing jigsaw.
Then come with us through into the breakfast kitchen; a remarkable, one-of-a-kind space with a friendly feel and chic finish. The maple and granite curves and gleaming range that greet you will inspire both design aficionados and culinary whizzes alike. The striking centre island becomes a hub for guests, whilst the utility is tucked away, perfectly positioned to hide the spoils.
The contemporary gas fire and Velux roof lights and blinds are all remote control, so you can relax, with all comforts just a button-push away.
Peek in the lake-facing dining room, with its light bay window, then through to the guest wing. This has a pretty bedroom, a luxury wet room, and even its own sitting room, private yet still part of the house. Perfect for granny, an au pair, or even a teenager?
Up the gently curving staircase, with a brief glance out of the huge skylight and you may catch sight of the ferry as it saunters across the narrowest part of Windermere, just a mile from Amberwell.
Bedrooms two and three share a family bathroom, then it’s down the long, graceful passageway to the majestic master suite. The regal bedroom oozes with sophisticated grown up glamour and enough fitted wardrobes to satisfy even the most stylish of dressers. The discreet dressing room could be a gym, laundry room or even a workspace; the ensuite is effortlessly elegant and unabashedly built for two.
Before you head back downstairs, let us show you the master bedroom balcony; throw a stone hard enough from here and it will almost hit the waters of Windermere. If you can see the Old Man of Coniston, with all his graceful contours, it’s going to be a lovely day. The tantalising glimpses of the Fairfield Horseshoe are thrilling when sprinkled with snow, and glowing in the late afternoon sunshine.
Why we love it: This is an enchanting house in the country with breathtaking Lakeland views set in a rare and privileged location; as you’ve seen, it’s perfect for those looking for lots of lovely, large rooms, a tranquil setting and something completely out of the ordinary.
