Nestled on the outskirts of the picturesque Lakeland village of Crook, only moments from the hustle and bustle of Bowness and Windermere, discover Rowanthwaite; a 3.25-acre plot where plans have been passed to build an impressive four-bedroom, luxury home, designed by architect BCA, overlooking a 1.25-acre lake.

Follow leafy Chapel Lane until you reach the entrance to Rowanthwaite, where plans are set for a sweeping driveway and turning circle. Plans include a large, integral double garage, from where there is direct access into a convenient boot room entrance with cloakroom access and access to the plant room, in which the works for the Ground Source Heat Pump and Cat5 for the tech-savvy home will be housed.

Nestled within an encirclement of tall trees including mature Scots pines, sense the seclusion and tranquility of Rowanthwaite's remarkable setting. Rural yet so accessible, only minutes from the nearby supermarkets in Windermere and less than 30 minutes' drive to the M6.

Enter via the boot room, where there is plenty of fitted storage for coats and boots, or directly into the enchanting entrance hall, where views over the lake present themselves instantly through tall windows ahead. Storage for coats and shoes is available in a cloakroom to the right, where a door also opens to a handy downstairs WC and wash basin.

Make your way from the entrance hall through to the heart of the home; the capacious open-plan family kitchen-dining room to the right.

Swimming in light, windows captivate the imagination, framing elevated views out over the lake. Dine at the table and season mealtimes with sunny vistas. There is ample space for a snug lounge to this end of the kitchen too.

Floor to ceiling, streamlined, handleless cabinetry forms an L-shape in the main kitchen, bespoke designed by Carvetti. Replete with state-of-the art appliances including a bank of ovens, a walk-in pantry and induction hob within the sociable central island-breakfast bar, a recessed washing area features a sunken sink and further storage.

Offset from and within easy eyeline of the kitchen is a playroom, handy for those with younger children and easily repurposed as a snug or reading room as your family evolves.

To the opposite side of the entrance hall, discover a sumptuous sitting room-cinema room, with pocket door sliding closed to provide perfect separation, and fitted blinds in the full height windows to create the ultimate movie night ambience.

Peacefully tucked back from the sitting room is a home office, overlooking the lake and furnished with its own bathroom. Consider the potential to utilise this room as an accessible ground floor bedroom with ensuite, ideal for those with mobility needs or for the use of dependent relatives (who can also enjoy use of the sitting room).

Upstairs, a large, light-filled landing leads to four bountifully sized bedrooms. Overlooking the lake to the front is the master bedroom, furnished with a large dressing room with an abundance of fitted wardrobes. Refresh and unwind in the sizeable ensuite bathroom with contemporary freestanding bath with floor mounted tap, walk-in wet room shower, vanity unit twin wash basins with mirrored cabinets above and WC.

Across the landing, bedroom four again overlooks the lake whilst featuring a walk-in wardrobe and ensuite with shower, wash basin and WC.

Light flows into the landing through full height windows to the front and rear, ensuring a bright and airy feel throughout the seasons.

Bedroom two also boasts breathtaking lake views, where a walkway of fitted wardrobes precedes the main bedroom, and refreshment awaits in the ensuite furnished with shower, wash basin and WC.

Cleverly designed to ease the laundry load, the utility room features upstairs - plumbed for washer and dryer and offering an abundance of storage including a window seat and a sink.

Perfect for guests and older teenagers, bedroom three is set overlooking the approach to Rowanthwaite, with its own lounge-kitchenette and shower room ensuite. Perfect for multigenerational living, Rowanthwaite also boasts a lift, allowing for older relatives to have easy access to this self-contained first floor accommodation.

Garden and grounds
Outside, take a walk or a jog around the natural wilderness of the grounds at Rowanthwaite. Take the dog for a walk around the lake, taking a break to enjoy the vistas from one of several viewpoints.

Observe wildlife in abundance, drawn by the tranquility and natural water supply from the meandering beck that marks the borders of Rowanthwaite along the roadside beyond the lake. Spy the tell-tale signs of otters as you pass the old waterwheel and keystones of the antique bridges. In springtime, note the snowdrops, daffodils and bluebells as they sequentially pop their nodding heads through. In summertime, the grounds are ablaze with colour from the azaleas and rhododendrons.

Enjoy family camp outs and expeditions, in a small clearing on the far side of the lake or spend a snoozy Sunday bobbing on the lake in a rowing boat enjoying a spot of fly fishing. As evening falls, the lake is bubbling with brown trout, jumping three a second in the dusky waters of the lake.

The ultimate entertaining haven, impress your family and friends with summer cookouts on the lakeside, what more sublime setting could you imagine for your summer fun?

Soak up the sunshine, basking in sunlight all day long, as it rises to the east of Rowanthwaite, lingering throughout the day before providing you with a show-stopping evening sunset. Rowanthwaite sits strikingly above the lake, meaning the surrounding tree line, while providing perfect privacy and screening, offers no obstacle for the sun's warm rays.

An outbuilding also presents the perfect opportunity for a gymnasium, studio or sauna, should you wish.
