Location, location, location! A property beautifully perched in an elevated setting, sitting on the edge of the village that quite simply has the most picturesque rural views you could ever wish for! This 2 Double Bedroom Detached Bungalow may now need some ‘modernisation’ but offers its new owners the opportunity to own a property in the Lake District National Park convenient for the attractions it offers or simply ‘stay put’ and ‘drink in’ the tranquil, far reaching views this home has to offer.

Property Details

Location: Finsthwaite is only a few minutes drive from the shores of Windermere and from the A590 at Newby Bridge, yet convenient for the attractions of the National Park and accessible for commuters and for the local towns and villages. To reach the property leave the A590 at Newby Bridge (signed for Hawkshead and Lakeside), go over the bridge to the Swan Hotel, take the first turn on the left and follow this road along by the river and over the railway bridge. Take the right turning at the next junction signposted Finsthwaite/Graythwaite and approximately 1 mile further on turn right into a cul-de-sac with ‘Karenwood’ being directly ahead through the 2 gates. A total distance from the main road of only about one and a half miles but a world away from the hustle and bustle of modern life!
