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, and Magnolia 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

Step inside, into the grand, original entrance hall with its original tiled floor and immersive staircase.

Through the first door on the right, step onto the herringbone flooring of Rose, an accessible ground floor apartment.

Sense the light and airy nature of life at Ford Park Apartments instantly, as the high ceilings, tall sash windows and deep windowsills set the scene for the easy living that awaits.

Grand windows to two sides frame views out to the verdant grounds and tall, mature trees for a private, peaceful feel, as you emerge into the open-plan kitchen-living-dining space.

On the rear wall, the floor to ceiling kitchen timber-clad units offer ample storage, minimal and Scandi in their style and design. A full array of Bosch appliances includes tall fridge-freezer, dishwasher, oven, hob and extractor with an undermounted sink. Set your dining table before the far window to enjoy the wildlife through the window, whilst your corner sofa can be comfortably housed on the opposite side of the room by another window.

Carpeted in plush grey, the first of the two bedrooms looks out over the lush gardens. There is ample space for a double bed. Along the hallway, sneak a peek at the utility cupboard, housing the boiler and with plumbing for a washer-dryer, whilst next door the main bedroom soaks up views of the lush grounds to both sides, through impressive sash windows

Soak up the serenity of this luxurious and prestigious location in the bathroom next door, elegantly tiled and featuring shower, wash basin and WC.
