Built in 1845, with a traditional Lakeland stone façade, Hazelthwaite is one of three homes within this historic building.

Make your way onto the shared driveway, where there is ample parking beside the double garage. Step up to the original front entrance, stunning and impressive, with a peaked roof, decorative stone archway and handsome front door that leads into the vestibule.

Once the main entrance to the building, with wood panelling, tiled floor and bespoke, glazed double doors leading to the entrance hall, it's an impressive and warm welcome to the home.
Hang up jackets and coats, ease out of boots and make your way inside to the wide and bright hallway. Cosy carpet flows out underfoot and decorative cornice lines the high ceilings, amplifying the sense of space and drawing the eye upward to the archway that leads to the staircase beyond.
Freshen up in the cloakroom on your right, featuring WC and washbasin, before continuing ahead. Peep into the storage cupboard that houses the fridge-freezer and cross the hallway to enter the spacious sitting room.

Abundantly sized and filled with character and distinction, the sitting room is instantly impressive. Two large windows, both dressed in handsome drapes, fill the room with light. The bay window looks out over the garden and toward the fells beyond, offering awe-inspiring views of Bowfell, Crinkle Crags, Wetherlam and The Old Man of Coniston.

In summer, take a seat and watch the sunsets where the sky is filled with pinks and blues. In winter, look out at the snowy peaks of the fells as you sip from a hot drink.
A log burning stove in a handsome surround makes for a visually stunning focal point as well as providing warmth and a natural place to gather. Original architraves have been lovingly repaired and overhead, the high, coffered ceiling with decorative cornice, enhances the sense of space and grandeur.

Return to the hallway and discover the cleverly fitted workstation, just by the side of the stairs, maximising the space and offering a place to study and focus, before turning left into the formal dining room.
Farrow and Ball's palette of deep green combined with the white ceiling and decorative cornice, bring an elegant and inviting ambience.

Host dinner parties with ease in the space and invite friends and family to take a seat at the large dining table beside the window that showcases the beautiful views. An ornate ceiling rose within which pendant lighting resides, waits to add to the lighting, creating the perfect atmosphere for those special occasions.

Flow through to the galley Wren kitchen, where karndean flooring is ready to make easy work of any spills or mishaps whilst cooking up feasts. White cabinetry lines the walls above and below the black granite countertops, offering plenty of space and storage. A glazed door provides access to the patio and garden beyond, and appliances include a Neff microwave, Neff oven and grill, Neff induction hob, integrated dishwasher and refrigerator.

Return to the entrance hall and take the door that leads down into the restored basement. Versatile and packed with potential, the basement consists of a wine cellar, a games room and utility area. Another hub of the home, this space with access to the garden, lends itself to a multitude of possibilities.

Retrace your steps to the entrance hall, and ascend the spindle staircase with half-turns and upper balcony. Above, a decorative roof lantern adds to the light and enhances the sense of space as you arrive at the landing.

A linen cupboard on your left fitted with shelving extends back, providing ample storage. Take the next left into a double bedroom. Flooded with light from the three arched windows, dressed in bespoke drapes, the room is bright and airy. Featuring an integrated storage cupboard along with ample space for wardrobes and seating, it's spacious and serene.

Cross the hallway to enter another large bedroom, boasting the same high ceilings and space. With fitted wardrobes and window overlooking the gardens, spot Lake Windermere in the winter and wake up to ever-changing scenes of rolling countryside.
Discover the family bathroom further down the hallway, featuring heated towel rail, bidet, WC and bath with overhead shower.

The principal bedroom is next door, where the same high ceilings and sense of grandeur that is throughout Hazelthwaite continues. A multitude of windows fill the room in natural light and offer amazing views of the gardens. Fitted wardrobes provide ample storage, and with plenty of room for extra seating and a dressing table, the space is an oasis of calm.
Flow through to the en-suite, comprising a large corner walk-in shower, bidet, WC, wash basin and heated towel rail.

Set in approximately a quarter of an acre and filled with mature plants, trees and foliage, the outside space to Hazelthwaite is as charming as the inside.
Pull up on the large driveway where there is parking for up to four cars. The large, double garage offers extra parking, and also houses a workshop and log store.

The outside terrace is perfectly placed to watch those amazing sunsets with a glass of your favourite tipple. In the summer months, dine alfresco, or invite friends and family over for barbeques whilst you soak up the views.

Wander down the tiered garden, to discover a smaller lawn leading to a larger lawn and natural pond. Play family games in the quiet and secluded space and relax in the sunshine on lazy afternoons.
