Minutes’ walk from Bowness Bay and the pier, Belsfield Court, set over three levels, is custom designed to maximise the lake-front views it gazes down upon.
Plenty of parking at the back for three or four cars (alongside a double garage), forget about the motor for the weekend…you won’t be needing it.
Step through the front door and into a serene entrance hallway, decorated in neutral buff tones.
Directly ahead, a door leads to the double garage and the parking beyond, a handy every-day-entrance. A vast space, there is also room for an additional fridge-freezer, washer, dryer and sink in this multi-functional space. Ideal for drying wet clothes after an afternoon on the fells; wash the dog down too after a dash and splash in the lake!
More than just a lobby, this floor also serves as a guest suite, with a cloakroom-shower-room to the right featuring a recently fitted shower, toilet and wash basin. Perfectly positioned across the way from the guest bedroom.
Decorated in pale tones, this tranquil double bedroom is comfortable and spacious, looking out over the front garden.
Also located on this ground floor is a boiler room, fitted with a brand-new boiler as we go to press! Hanging space for all the waterproofs and winter coats in here too. On the left, there is also a large cupboard, currently used for storing wine and the hoover! A little door at the back reveals further storage beneath the stairs.
Take the stairs to the first floor, and emerge opposite two large cupboards; one currently used for storing surplus kitchenware and the other as a cocktail bar! However, why not follow the trend of a neighbour, who converted this space into a handy guest WC? To do so would create washing facilities on each level.
Follow your nose to the left, where a Moben kitchen awaits.
Matt-charcoal floor tiles juxtapose the gleaming marble-effect worktops, which run up behind the units in place of splashbacks.
Pale-pistachio units conceal an array of cupboards, drawers and shelves alongside an integrated dishwasher, fridge-freezer and Tecnik cooker.
With four hobs, stir fry plate, a double oven and plate warming drawers, unleash your inner chef and impress your guests.
Bon viveurs can enjoy the good life here at Belsfield Court; once dinner is prepared, serve up a meal to remember in the open-plan dining room, through the archway.
With its own balcony offering glimpses of the lake, where better to enjoy after dinner cocktails?
Follow the sunshine round, to the sitting room, where it remains from lunchtime until late in the day.
A wall of windows captures the Glebe opposite and the Bowness boats as they bob about on Lake Windermere. An ever-changing panorama from season-to-season and moment-to-moment; no two days are ever the same.
In winter, cosy up in front of the fire. The air conditioning, so soothing in the summer, also doubles up as a heater in the winter if needed.
Ascend to the uppermost floor, where penthouse views await…
Sneak a peek to the right, and sample the stunning vistas from the gargantuan master-suite.
Admire the backdrop of garden, lake and fell views. Air conditioning is also on hand in this room, perfect for keeping cool in the evenings.
So spacious is this chamber there is room for your bed, dressing area and even a sitting area.
Peep into the en-suite, where a large, walk-in, rainfall shower has a handheld attachment, and low shelf ideal for perching or for toiletries. Soft, sandy-toned tiling emits a relaxed waters-edge vibe, inkeeping with its shoreline location.
Tucked behind the door is a toilet, whilst other fixtures include a hand basin with waterfall tap and in-built vanity unit beneath. A white heated towel rail also features.
Serving the remaining two bedrooms on this level is a crisp, white, family bathroom, complete with double-ended bath containing shower attachment, wash basin and toilet.
Twin bedrooms are located to the left, both with fitted wardrobes, offering plentiful storage, and both ideal for children and guests. The further left of the two offers its patrons glorious views down Lake Windermere.
Watch the world go by from the front garden, where a Lakeland slate covered porch is the ideal place for a swing chair. Low maintenance and designed for comfort and enjoyment, there is also a small lawn for children to enjoy.
