Only a three-minute walk from the centre of Coniston, a newly tarmacked, private road will take you to this little gem of a blank canvas awaiting a new story.
Built in impressive Lakeland stone this large plot boasts stunning views, a secluded and tranquil location and offers bags of potential.

An inviting house, packed with features that celebrate its unique origins. Currently a three-bedroom home with potential to extend and develop in your own contemporary or traditional way to design a home that suits your personality.

Through the gates and round to the left-hand side of the house reveals the extent of the peaceful tiered site. Slate steps lead up to the front door where there is ample room to construct a patio and porch to give an entrance this property deserves. In the summer months this would be the perfect place to enjoy a morning coffee whilst keeping a watchful eye on the wildlife.

Step down and be welcomed into the lounge of this cosy and charming home. Be wowed by the floor to ceiling focal point of Lakeland stone surrounding the wood burner and the beams high overhead. Natural light floods in through the double doors of the dining room in this split-level living, giving you beautiful views of Long Cragg fell.

A double height kitchen conveniently placed directly off the dining room boasts more of the stunning vistas through the large picture window.

Stroll up the stairs in the kitchen to the second floor. Emerge onto a bright mezzanine with striking exposed original stonework and beams, views towards the front of the house and glass wall looking over the kitchen. Picture yourself working in a home office/studio under the skylight, a reading chair set in the corner would complete this snug nook. The second floor continues through the eaves of the home into another versatile room - bedroom, guest room, the choice is yours! A large loft space to the rear of the property houses the water tank and plenty of storage finishes the top floor.

Retrace your steps back through the house and into the dining room where doors lead to a family bathroom and largest of the three bedrooms.

It's time to design the ultimate luxury bathroom. Imagine filling a sleek white tub, lighting the candles and soaking the night away, relaxing after a day in the fells. Adjacent to this descend the steps into Bedroom One. A peaceful space with a large window giving the opportunity to admire the beauty of the garden.

Roam back to the lounge to find steps up to two bedroom. Notice the depth of the windows sills echoing the warm and inviting atmosphere of the whole property. The cubby hole windows and exposed wooden beams add a touch of charm to these quaint rooms.
Opportunities like Long Crag House don't come along very often, so get the paper out and start creating your vision board for your dream home.

Garden and Grounds
The grounds at Long Crag House are generous with development potential subject to planning. Create private parking for at least two cars at the front of the home.

A walled boundary makes for a secluded garden that is a haven for wildlife. Towards the front of the house the garden is waiting for green fingers to design a beautiful and captivating hideaway, perfect for entertaining. A path leads over a stream to a picket gate in the drystone, perimeter wall, ideal for the short walk to the shops or an adventure onto the fells.

Patio doors from the side of the house open up onto a stunning suntrap. With ample space for a large table and chairs you can enjoy the evening sun with a glass of wine on the terrace surrounded by potted plants, listening to the wildlife nearby; the ambience heightened by the striking background of the rugged Coniston fells.

Put your stamp on Long Crag House and start your adventure in the heart of the Lake District.
