Location From Ambleside follow the A593 to Coniston. Upon entering the village, cross the bridge and continue along the A593 as if heading towards Torver. Passing the petrol filling station on your left and continuing around the gentle curve in the road. Campbell House is then found on the left hand side opposite the gently sloping meadow on the right. Number 15 is to be found at the left hand Southern end of the building. There are just two external steps and the property is then at entry level towards your left. There is car parking provision within the development.
Description This lovely, bright and welcoming apartment is enviably placed on the edge of the village, set back from the road and enjoying fabulous views. The accommodation itself is also very nicely placed within the building having just two small external steps and then being found at entry level, although by the time you reach the living room and the main bedroom at the rear you are actually at first floor level due to the sloping nature of the site. This dramatically enhances both the views and the privacy afforded. Those views are far reaching looking over the school grounds to the wooded slopes of Grizedale beyond the lake. We would not wish to mislead you into thinking that vast vistas of the lake are enjoyed, as that is not the case. You may only get the odd glimpse of sparkling water, particularly when the trees are not in leaf, but it is still a lovely view.
The location could hardly be better – all that Coniston has to offer, where a wide variety of shops, cafes, restaurants and traditional Lakeland inns can be found is just a short stroll away whilst for the more energetic who enjoy getting out onto the fells, Coniston Old Man may also be reached on foot, as may the lake shore.
The apartment is very nicely presented with a stylishly fitted kitchen and a bright and spacious living room with excellent views, two really good sized double bedrooms also with very pleasant outlooks, and a bathroom. For those perhaps considering semi-retirement to this wonderful part of the world, the second bedroom would make a splendid home office, provided that you have the willpower not to be distracted by the view.
The communal grounds include lawned areas as well as private car parking. This select development provides for those aged 55 years and over making this welcoming home a perfect retirement apartment or second home. A lovely home which is highly recommended for early viewing.
