Designed by and for the mastermind behind Windermere Park, Orotava takes its name from the town of La Orotava, a mountainous municipality in northern Tenerife.

The warmth of sunny Spain can be felt instantly upon arrival at Orotava, stepping up to and beyond the front door, into an inspiring entrance hallway, where there is storage for coats and boots in a cupboard on the right.

A series of five carpeted stairs leads up from the front door to the main entrance hall, where the vast, curving, double height ceiling of Orotava rises up above. Light cascades through from a wall of glass to the upper right-hand side, whilst below, intriguing, arched doors lead off in all directions. Ahead, through the arched open doorway, tantalising garden views entreat your attention.

Ammonite fossils glint in the natural light beneath your feet as the Jura limestone flooring, warmed by underfloor heating, amplifies the airy brightness of the entrance hall. The imposing French polished solid wood staircase leads up ahead, lending a classic grandeur to the home.

Follow the light through the doorway on the right, marvelling at the calming ambience of Orotava. Cocoa carpet on the right denotes the transition from the tiled open-plan kitchen-dining room on the left to the comfort and warmth of the spacious lounge.

Light flows in abundance, with windows to the front corner offering dazzling views out over the garden and out to Lake Windermere and the fells beyond. Sit back, relax and unwind with these incredible Lakeland views framed like artwork.

Sociably opened up from two rooms into one, continue through to the kitchen-dining room, where a cleverly designed breakfast bar helps to zone the two spaces whilst ensuring a continuity: ideal for hosting guests. Mingle and find space for seclusion, all the while, ever present views of established garden and Lake Windermere present themselves in the wide windows.

Gleaming granite worktops cover both breakfast bar and central island in this well-designed kitchen, so efficient in its layout, with sink cleverly concealed from view of the diners, and within easy reach of both dishwasher, cupboards and deep drawers.

A cabinet devoted to tea and coffee making facilities helps keep the surfaces clutter free. Integrated appliances include a large Siemens induction hob, oven, microwave and grill.

Dine at the rear, where another corner of glass creates a sense of lightness and oneness with the outdoors, as the mature garden of Orotava blends with the mature trees in the distance, extending out to Lake Windermere and the fells.

Step outside, onto the balcony which curves around the corner to provide unbroken views via glass balustrades out onto the garden. Shelter and shade in the heat of summer are provided by an awning above. Peaceful and perfectly private, let the soothing serenity of the surrounding nature and wildlife restore your equilibrium. There is ample space for a dining table and chairs, while steps lead down from here into the garden.

From the kitchen, turn right and continue ahead into the office, where sliding glass doors lead out onto a slate patio, ideal for coffee breaks in the sunshine and shade before heading back to work. To the right, a picture window frames views out toward Lake Windermere, ensuring a bright and light ambience. Full fibre broadband ensures you remain connected.

Formerly the original kitchen of Orotava, make your way through to the utility room, fully furnished with ample storage, granite worktops and plumbing for washer-dryer. Access the garden directly from this room.

Returning to the entrance hall, turn left and beyond an arched doorway into the first of four bedrooms. A room with a relaxing, private feel, a broad window delivers light through, framing views out to the side of the garden. Peaceful and neutral in its décor there is ample space for a king-size bed, dressing table and wardrobes.

Next door on the left, a modern bathroom, tiled in grey to the lower walls and floor and furnished with a Crystal Corian-formed, undermounted wash basin with vanity unit storage, WC, and bath with overhead shower. A large airing cupboard with plenty of shelving also houses the Baxi boiler.

On the left of the bathroom, a second bedroom is accessed via an arched wooden door. Carpet extends underfoot with another wide window capturing views out over the mature rhododendrons and hedging to the side. Spacious and bright, this room brims with built-in storage.

Admire the careful craftsmanship of the carved banister and hand-turned spindles, as you take the stairs up to the first floor.

Arriving on the carpeted landing, turn left into the recently redecorated main bedroom, where elevated views extend over the greenery and hedging to the side. A wall of glossy fitted wardrobes offers more storage than you imagine, with a secret door opening to a walk-in wardrobe beyond. A further door provides access to yet more storage.

Open the arched door into a stylish ensuite, warmed beneath its large grey tiles by underfloor heating. Enjoy a leisurely soak in the freestanding tub or a rejuvenating splash in the sleek, glass walk-in shower. Also furnished with a wash basin and WC, this light and bright bathroom is a true sanctuary

Returning to the landing, a wall of glass provides a preview of the upstairs lounge, a remarkable room offering elevated vistas out over the garden and Lake Windermere to the distant fells beyond.

Peaceful calm meets with cosy lodge cheer with the exposed stone wall and alcoves and warmth-infusing log-burning stove. Above, the sensational, domed ceiling adds an inviting embrace to the scene.

Spacious and bright, there is ample room for a grand piano. Sit and soak up the serenity, admire the view or entertain family and friends. This is an all-encompassing room providing refuge to all.

Returning downstairs to the front entrance, take the stairs down to the lower level, where a cellar room offers dry space for all your Christmas decorations and outdoor equipment. On the left, discover a large wardrobe for storage. From the lower floor there is also direct access into the integral double garage.

Turning right, step onto the slate grey floor of the guest suite. A spacious room with a lounge area with space for a kitchenette, this could serve as self-contained guest accommodation, with a double bedroom, zoned off with shower-room ensuite, and independent access via sliding doors to a decked, covered, verandah area. Consider extending into the garage to make a large self-contained apartment; there is ample space at the side to construct a separate garage.

Outside, discover the perfect privacy of the substantial garden areas at Orotava. To the front, there is plenty of parking in front of the double garage with electric roller shutter doors and along the driveway, which continues around to the side,

Wrapping around Orotava behold just under an acre of landscaped and manicured garden, where lawn, pathways and circular borders take you on a journey, planted in differing styles with Mediterranean beds and traditional planting.

Enjoy views of the garden from the upper balcony terrace or meander the pathways, perching on a log bench hewn from a fallen tree. Sense the natural order and beauty of the Lakes at large from this garden snapshot of the outdoors.

A recently added illuminated seating area in one of the central borders, offers shelter and shade; whilst lighting is used to illuminate the many seating areas and an established pond.

Enjoy a game of boules with the family as dusk falls, before continuing the merriment indoors.
