Next door, make your way into the generous sized lounge with neutral décor, rich cream carpet underfoot and stone feature fireplace.

Light floods in from the large windows which frame the magnificent views of Lake Windermere and the distant rolling hills beyond. Enjoy endless winter nights wrapped up warm by the fire, relishing your own private scenery.

In the summer months, throw open the door leading to the large terrace, and soak up those stunning elevated vistas as you enjoy your morning coffee, or sip from a hot chocolate in the evening.
Invite loved ones over to dine alfresco, glass of wine in hand, as the evening turns to dusk, and the stars make an appearance.

Retrace your steps back through the lounge. Note the second access point to the terrace before ascending the steps to a light and airy double bedroom.
With windows filling the room in light, and framed by roman blinds, it's an oasis of calm. The space also easily lends itself to a home office, gym, or reading room. The possibilities are endless.
Freshen up in the cloakroom next door, comprising WC and washbasin, with the potential to fit a shower if needed.

Turn left into a spacious double bedroom. Bespoke fitted wardrobes and cupboards line the walls, offering ample storage space for all personal items, and the neutral décor gives a bright and fresh ambience. Wake up to unparalleled views of the lake and watch it change with the seasons as you get ready to start your day.

Cross the landing and enter the second bedroom, with bespoke wall and overhead cabinets, as well as an integrated cupboard for extra storage, there is a place for everything and everything in its place. The window allows for plenty of natural light and overlooks the leafy trees of the driveway.
Discover the large family shower-room at the end of the landing, where the colour palette is both timeless and elegant. Featuring ceiling to floor tiled walls, a walk-in shower, towel rail, floating washbasin, WC, and storage space.

From the lounge, make your way downstairs to discover a self-contained annexe. Perfect for multigenerational families or visiting guests and loved ones who appreciate their own space.

Turn left and climb the three steps that lead into a double bedroom with large windows filling the room in light. The en-suite bathroom next door features a bath with an overhead shower, washbasin, and WC.
Retrace your steps and make your way into a lovely spacious open-plan kitchen area, flooded with natural light from the double patio doors that lead to the garden beyond. A door to the right provides another access point, meaning guests can come and go as they please.

Contemporary in style, the kitchen has sleek white doors combined with black worktops and features a peninsula counter with seating, perfect for taking a seat and chatting with the chef as meals are prepared. With ample storage and worktop space, appliances include dishwasher, washing machine and drier, and free-standing fridge-freezer.

Flow through to the large living area, with unrivalled views of the garden extending down to the beauty of Lake Windermere. Spend lazy days with the doors open, where the boundaries of outside and in are blurred, and where looking out over the gardens will become your favourite pastime.

Tucked away behind the lounge is an area brimming with possibilities. A large open space with an integrated storage room. Currently used to keep household items, why not transform the space into a home gym or cinema room? Imagine quality family time with movie nights and popcorn at the ready!

Gardens And Grounds
With private access to Lake Windermere, including your own jetty, the outside spaces to Garden Hill Cottage are both captivating and exciting.

Drive through the gated entrance, where a shared leafy pathway takes you to this handsome home with flower beds outside the front door. The driveway, framed by a stone wall, provides ample parking for you and your guests.

At the rear of the house, a long, beautiful landscape garden awaits, with different areas to enjoy and explore. There are spaces for quiet contemplation or gardening, both offering a breathtaking view of the lake, from which you'll never tire.

Step out onto the private large patio area, and take in the awe-inspiring view of Lake Windermere, which changes with the seasons. On summer nights, entertain family and friends with the stars as your canopy, and the distant sounds of water lapping the shoreline.

Let all your worries drift away as you wander down through the garden. Pause to take in the beautiful surroundings and flowery scents, and say hello to the visiting wildlife that includes two resident ducks who return year after year! Keep all garden equipment and furniture safely organised in the shed, as you relish every second in your own little oasis.

Stroll to the water's edge and dip your toes in, maybe indulge in childhood memories with a spot of stone skipping.

With direct access to Lake Windermere, why not start your day with an invigorating wild swim to awaken your senses? Moor your boat, ready to spend adventurous days on the water with the wind in your face and the sun on your back. Have the lake all to yourself before the world wakes up and enjoy the health benefits too.
