Turn around and catch your first glimpse of the resplendent Lake Windermere.

An impressive, colour accented glazed frontage delivers endless light and invites you to step inside the spectacular entrance hall which connects all areas of the house. Meet a stunning full height slate spine wall and blonde timber flooring, reclaimed from a local school. The bespoke reclaimed timber staircase leads to two floors and provides the first opportunity to admire the views over the lake and mountains beyond. A large boot room to the left of the entrance provides a useful home for outdoor clothing. Housed through a door ahead is the boiler room, along with a further useful storage area and a quirky slate walled wood store tucked behind. Return to right to locate a sizeable utility room with linen storage opposite.

Head left from the hallway to a comfortable and luxurious bedroom, light filtering in through the multiple stained-glass windows. Take a turn next left to a further spacious bedroom with ample room for a king-sized bed. Step across to the bathroom, a large bathtub set against the tiled surround, and a refreshing waterfall shower above. Twin washbasins with storage cupboards and illuminated mirrors along with also fitted. Adjacent is a convenient cloakroom with WC and handbasin. Back to the hallway, beyond the door discover the open plan sitting room and kitchen, soft light filtering through the full-length windows and lighting the soothing neutral space. A fully equipped kitchen for whipping up a delicious dishes area completes the accommodation. Spy the inviting patio beyond dotted with graceful ferns, rocky outcrops and a natural waterfall creating an inviting seating area providing the perfect place to enjoy a morning coffee.

Retrace your steps to the hallway and ascend the open tread stairs, reaching the galleried landing, flooded with light through an expanse of glass, framing incredible views of the National Park. Turn to your right to find your eyes drawn along the long landing of the guest wing, containing three ensuite bedrooms, each replete with luxury kitchenette, dishwasher, and seating areas. Boldly styled with individual features, such as a freestanding timber bath, wine cooler and window glass accents to express the unique facets of the property. The suites have bifold doors, and access to the balcony deck which offers further panoramic views of the spectacular scenery, from a cosy loveseat, or on cooler days snuggled up in your king-sized bed.
