Pull along the long tarmac driveway, where there is plenty of parking space alongside an integral garage. Ascend the paved stone steps with elegant wrought iron handle to the front door, where elevated views over the garden and fells greet you from the glass enclosed terrace.

Step inside, into a bright, broad entrance hall, well illuminated by the natural light spilling in through the glazed front door. Peaceful and bright, sense the warm ambience of this home instantly upon arrival.

Far reaching views await from the open-plan living-dining area on the right. Overhead, attractive plaster corbels add a refined touch to this sociable space. A spacious and inviting room, light flows in through a corner of large, picture windows to the front.

Admire the ever-changing views out over the mature and landscaped garden and catch glimpses of Lake Windermere; slide open the patio doors and step out onto the terrace, the perfect place for aperitifs. In wintertime, as the leaves fall, views of the lake sharpen into clear focus, and the living room takes on a cosy feel as the gas fire infuses the space with warmth.

Enjoy breakfast in the kitchen, a warm and welcoming room found through the second door on the right. Plenty of storage can be found in the white units, with a glass fronted wall-mounted shelving rack for plates and glasses. Prepare dinner whilst watching the birds visiting the feeders in the garden from the wide window above the sink. Appliances include a fitted dishwasher, oven and grill and an electric hob.

Beyond the kitchen, the spacious utility room offers access out to the garden, with plumbing for a washer-dryer and plenty of space for pet bowls and beds.

Leaving the kitchen, a cloakroom is on hand to the right, furnished with wash basin, WC and storage cupboards.

Further storage is available along the hallway on the left, where a deep linen closet is fitted with plenty of shelving.

Recently fitted, the bathroom opposite is furnished in modern fashion, with fitted cabinetry housing the WC and wash basin, with cupboard storage beneath. There is also a bath with shower.

Sleep soundly in the comfortable bedrooms at No. 23, Ferney Green Drive, the first of which awaits next door to the bathroom. Built-in wardrobes provide ample space for clothing and accessories, with plenty of space for a double bed. The large window captures pretty views out over the rear garden.

Next door to the second bedroom, arrive at the main bedroom on the right. Spacious and bright, shimmering wallpaper catches the sunlight, flowing in through the leaded window to the front. Wake up to glorious views out over the garden and to the distant fells and lake. A range of fitted white wardrobes provide plenty of storage.

Finally, arrive at the third bedroom next door on the right, also enjoying stunning elevated views out over the established garden and balcony terrace.

Relax in the verdant surrounds of Ferney Green Drive's glorious gardens. Landscaped borders to the front surround the substantial driveway, where there is pedestrian access via a secure gate to the gardens at the rear. Through the large garage, there is access to the original wash house, now a useful utility area with a sink and storage.

To the front, a large lower patio looks out over the vast front garden originally designed by Hayes Garden Centre, where lawn is edged by mature trees, fiery acers, colourful rhododendrons, hydrangea bushes and shrubs, framing the boundary and offering colour and interest throughout the seasons

Steps lead up from the patio and alongside the house to the rear garden, where a second patio sits to the rear and further planted borders follow the stone steps up to the upper patio - where lake views can be enjoyed later in the year.
