Surrounded by greenery, Ford Park House is situated in Ford Park, nestled at the foot of the impressive Sir John Barrow Monument on Hoad Hill, an iconic local landmark in the thriving and historic market town of Ulverston.

A much-loved charity-run park, with a walled kitchen garden and plant nursery, well-maintained adventure playground, wildlife trails, British native tree arboretum and community orchard in addition to open air cinema events, Ford Park is as vibrant as it is peaceful.

Exclusive setting - easy access
An historic town, with winding cobbled streets, quaint alleyways and ancient buildings, Ulverston has a magical and unique charm. It also has its own quirky claims to fame. Ulverston is the birthplace of Stan Laurel - and home to the Laurel and Hardy Museum. It is also home to the world's shortest, deepest and widest canal.

Easily accessed from the south off the M6 and along the A590, Ulverston is perfectly poised on the cusp of the Lake District, positioned at the start of the 70-mile Cumbrian Way.

Only 15 minutes from the foot of Lake Windermere, 20 minutes from Coniston Water and only a mile and a half from the coast of Morecambe Bay, you are perfectly poised for days out on the water. Meanwhile for true fell walkers, the fells and trails of the Duddon Valley and the lesser trodden Western Lakes are at your fingertips.

Historic home, contemporary living
Built in 1857 for Montague Ainslie, then owner of Grizedale Hall and an estate near Grizedale, Ford House was then taken on by the Ministry of Defence in 1942 and housed American soldiers during the second world war. In more recent years, Ford House served as a school up until 1997, remaining derelict until its purchase by Reform Developments, specialists in working on listed heritage buildings.

Alongside award-winning architects Lind Studio, whose portfolio focusses on complex, design-led projects, the period finesse of Ford House has been rescued, retained and reworked and respectfully extended to create a collection of exclusive, luxury apartments.

Imposing arrival
In the heart of Ulverston, Ford Park serves as a leafy oasis; pull along the sweeping driveway up through the park and pull into the fob-accessed private car park, where designated parking is available for Rose, Honeysuckle, Magnolia, Bramble, and Birch apartments (Primrose, the penthouse apartment is afforded two spaces), with Electric Vehicle Charging Points.

The Grade-II listed whitewashed home stands proudly ahead, a marked contrast to the blend of period cottages and towering maritime townhouses in the surrounding streets and avenues.

Surrounding Ford Park Apartments, flagstone terraces lead out to lawned spaces, bordered by architectural plants and bushes providing colour, shelter and shade.

A small, exclusive community of nine homes, enjoy the sense of security and camaraderie of this select abode, whilst retaining a sense of privacy and seclusion.

Taking a contemporary twist on the traditional, step into Bramble No. 9, Ford Park Apartments, housed in the modern sandstone and wood cladded extension to the original manor house.

A full height window and modern glazed door spill light through onto the wooden parquet flooring, opening to a communal terrace beyond. Spacious and light, with a high ceiling, the contemporary kitchen is nestled to the far corner, with breakfast bar topped in concrete-effect worktops and containing an undermounted sink with chef's tap. Warm wooden cabinetry houses plenty of storage and conceals the built-in fridge-freezer, also accommodating the Bosch oven and induction hob with flush extractor fan. LED strip lighting shines down from beneath the upper cabinets.

Turning left from the front door, sneak a peek at the spacious bedroom, where a tall, glazed door offers instant access out to the communal patio. Bright and well proportioned, there is ample space for a bed, side tables and storage.

Along the hallway discover the utility closet with hot water tank and plumbing for washer-dryer, before arriving at the bathroom.

Large, buff-toned tiles coat the walls and floor for a luxurious, spa-hotel feel. Enjoy a soak in the bath, fitted with overhead rainfall shower and handheld attachment. Warm your towel on the heated rail, whilst there is also a wash basin and WC.
