Named for the willow beds that remain in situ on the land, it's hard to believe upon arrival at The Willows, that you are only a ten-minute walk from the busy shores of Lake Windermere and only minutes from Fell Foot Park.

Central to the panorama of peaceful, 360-degree fellside views, the timber clad house, set upon a large area of gravelled driveway, sits utterly in harmony with its surroundings.

Designed as a celebration of the outdoors, light-filled living epitomises The Willows. Stepping inside, into the open-plan living-dining-kitchen, the double height ceiling and gallery landing rise up above, for an airy, impressive arrival home. Solid oak harmonises with glass as full height windows reach the apex of the roof, with French doors from the living room connecting to the decking for seamless indoor-out living.

Emanating hygge vibes and warmth of welcome, the log burner stands at an angle, flue exposed and rising upward, again drawing attention to the high ceiling and airiness of the room.

Eco décor adds a natural softness throughout in the sheep's wool insulation and lime plaster specifically selected to accommodate the natural movement of oak over time. Breathable and environmentally friendly, lime paint coats the walls, a selection of Farrow & Ball and Little Greene paint.

Whether relaxing in front of the log burner with a book, or dining by the corner of glass windows, views of the mountains, garden and countryside are an ever-present source of pleasure.

Subtle curves feature throughout the home, displayed in the kitchen, awash with light courtesy of a large Velux window overhead and a window above the sink framing views out to Gummer's How. Appliances include a double oven, grill, induction hob, dishwasher and fridge-freezer.

Underfloor heating beneath the oak flooring, served by the low-carbon emission Air Source Heat Pump is low maintenance and efficient, ensuring constant warmth. With views from every window, watch the weather patterns come in from a distance, snug and cosy indoors. A sociable space, remain connected with family and friends whilst preparing dinner.

Across from the kitchen, sneak a peek at an office, where large windows to two sides provide inspirational scenes of nature while you work. A versatile space, it could also serve as a playroom.

Continue along to arrive at the first of two double bedrooms on the left. Sage green tones and honeyed oak combine for a soothing palette in touch with the Lakeland setting. With fitted wardrobes and space for a chest of drawers and double bed, this bedroom is peacefully tucked away from the main entertaining area.

Beyond the bedroom, a hallway provides access to the formal front door.

Soothe your aches after an adrenaline filled day of adventuring on the hills, kayaking on Lake Windermere or hacking along the bridleways, with a soak in the bath. Tiled in Burlington slate underfoot, the bathroom contains a bath, separate wet-room style walk-in shower, pebble bowl inset in an oak vanity unit and WC.

Returning to the main living area, take the curved oak staircase to the mezzanine level landing, a large space which curves around to a snug - the ultimate den for teenagers - set beneath a triangular window looking out to the trees. Ideal too as an office area or even a guest bedroom, Velux windows above and windows surrounding ensure a constant connection to nature.

Borrowing light and views from the enormous wall of windows to the front, the second bedroom, another comfortable double, has glass doors to capture unbroken views of the outdoors.

Garden and Outbuildings

The Willows, is situated alongside the Millerbeck County Wildlife site where nature is your neighbour, with a wide variety of birds visiting, including flocks of migrating geese and swans flying over on route to Fell Foot.
