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, bear left adjacent to the public car park into Greenside Road signposted for the Travellers Rest. Take the next left passing Fairlight Café and Guesthouse and Stybarrow Terrace can be found a short distance along on the left hand side. In addition to the garage the property enjoys two off road parking spaces situated through a gated entrance just before this terrace of stone built cottages.
Description Thought have been built in the 1890’s as a miners cottage, this lovely, welcoming home offers bright accommodation which has been thoughtfully improved, extended (three times) and re-configured over the years to now offer exceptional accommodation over three storeys.
Offered as a fully furnished going concern with plenty of forward bookings through to 2022, the property would nevertheless ultimately also make a splendid family home with ample home-office space for the future.
The large entrance hallway gives access to the splendid living room, beyond which is the extended family kitchen, a rear hall and a useful utility/cloak room. On the first floor are two double bedrooms, one with an en-suite shower, alongside the stylish four piece house bathroom. The study (or occasional fourth bedroom) also houses the staircase which give access to the superb primary bedroom on the second floor, which includes the real "wow factor" of having a provided by the glazed wall at the rear with double doors leading out onto the south facing covered balcony. Outstanding!
Outside there are two car parking spaces in addition to the garage (although a little manoeuvring would be required to house a car in the garage currently) and really colourful, pretty gardens. There are two stores which are perfect for housing outdoor gear, bikes, canoes etc, one of which is currently set up and equipped as a laundry.
There are lovely field and fell views to be enjoyed to both the front and rear of the cottage including of Glenridding Dodd, Angle Tarn Pikes and up towards Keldas, whilst the views from the south facing garden are arguably even better!
Ask almost anyone what they would want from their dream Lakeland home and they may mention that they would love to be able to step out of the door and walk the fells. Well, with the entire Helvellyn mountain range virtually on your doorstep that is certainly available here (legs and lungs willing – shorter walks are available!). Others may prefer to take a more gentle stroll along the lake shore, or even to venture onto the water itself, in whatever manner takes their fancy, be that in a kayak, on a windsurfer, paddle board or just wild swimming. With beautiful Ullswater just down the lane such options are also immediately on hand. What about a drink or an evening meal ? The local inn is even closer, as are a select variety of shops catering for your daily needs. Add in the superb views to both the front and rear, the lovely south facing garden which backs onto an open field plus excellent off road car parking and the appeal of this welcoming home is clear to see.
Offered fully furnished as a going concern with plenty of forward bookings through to 2022 this is a lovely traditional Lakeland home which is full of character and with some lovely surprises, so come and view as we are certain that you will not be disappointed.
