Enjoying sensational panoramic lake and fell views this brand new and stylish detached home is superbly placed above beautiful Ullswater and is just a short stroll from Glenridding village and will make the perfect weekend retreat or unique family home and combines 5 double bedrooms with 4 bathrooms, all in magnificent surroundings.
It is rare to find a newly built home in the gorgeous Lake District National Park which can be a second home or permanent residence but this unique property offers just such an opportunity. Attractive, spacious and stylish, perfectly placed and imaginatively designed this is not one to miss.
Location Delightfully positioned in the small village of Glenridding, close to Ullswater and at the foot of Helvellyn, this stunning unrestricted new build property is ideally placed for immediate access to the Lakeland fells. To reach the property from Ambleside take the Kirkstone road from the mini roundabout at the northern end of town and continue up the hill to the T junction opposite the Kirkstone Pass Inn. Turn left, proceeding down the Kirkstone Pass passing both Brotherswater and Patterdale and on reaching Glenridding itself, continue past the public car park on the left and the Inn on the Lake on the right. Follow this road a short distance past a new dwelling on your left before taking a left turn onto a private road signposted "Private Road and No Access". Follow this unmade lane up the hill passing ‘Galena’ on the right and the property can be found on your left immediately after the passing place on the left hand side.
Description Quietly positioned above the village and enjoying the most beautiful panoramic lake and fell views this imaginatively designed brand new detached home offers space, light and convenience in equal measure.
For those who want nothing more than to be able to sit in comfort and admire gorgeous views, this unique home is a dream come true. If hiking the high fells or enjoying water-based sports on arguably Lakelands prettiest lake is your thing then look no further. If a stroll down to the village shop, pub or restaurant is what it takes, then relax, all is on hand. This location is quite simply perfect. You can step out of the door and walk the entire Helvellyn mountain range, amble down to the lake shore or to the village Inn, whatever takes your fancy.
Designed to take full advantage of truly spectacular views, this bright south-west facing home offers space for everyone with well balanced accommodation which is perfect whether you are seeking a special family home or a relaxing weekend retreat (the property cannot become a guest house or holiday let).
The ever changing views are quite simply breath-taking, encompassing long lengths of beautiful Ullswater and the surrounding fells including Place Fell, The Angle Tarn Pikes, and Fairfield to name just a few. The choice of destinations when walking from the doorstep are seemingly just as endless (catering for all standards of fitness) and this welcoming home enjoys that elusive "away from it all" feel whilst just being a short stroll from a variety of small shops, cafes and Inns in the village below.
The accommodation is arranged over three stories and includes a superb family kitchen which will no doubt end up being the heart of the home, although it will be rivalled by the magnificent lounge as both rooms enjoy exceptional views. There is also a utility room and cloak room on this level. There are five double bedrooms in total, one with an en-suite dressing room and bathroom, one with an en-suite bathroom and one with an en-suite shower. There is a house bathroom and an amazing amount of storage space (a much underrated facility) throughout. There is ample car parking provision on the driveway and easily managed gardens again with superb views.
This is a special home and a unique opportunity – why not come and take a look, enjoy those views for yourself and make up your own mind!
