Description What a charming, cosy, inviting, private and manageable bijou place! Perfect for the down-sizer/retiree, those seeking a bolthole or perhaps an investor or young couple/single person. Tower House is a period property converted into flats in 1964, located close to the medieval Priory Gatehouse and associated with the Priory’s ancient buildings. Flat 2 was formerly the service quarters many years ago and echos of the past are subtly displayed and celebrated. The game hooks remain in the ceiling of the Living Room and the inglenook fireplace (not in use) is simply a joy.

The Shared Entrance at the rear opens in to the Shared Vestibule with private door to the Open-Plan Living space. The Kitchen area is furnished with a good range of white wall and base cabinets with contrasting black work-surface and modern subway tiles as splash-back. Electric oven, ceramic hob and stainless steel sink unit. Slimline dishwasher and under-counter fridge included in the sale. Original, recessed, very useful storage cupboard. The Living area is spacious enough to accommodate a modest table and chairs and has a large window with rear aspect. Alcove recess to the side of the fireplace and super game/meat hooks remain in-situ in the ceiling! The main focal point of the room is the impressive inglenook fireplace with original stone mantle (not in use).

The Inner Hall has an excellent bank of storage cupboards with the middle cupboard being a Utility Closet with plumbing for washer and space above for drier.

The cosy Bedroom enjoys a private rear aspect and has a charming low level recess and sizeable, recessed wardrobe. The Bathroom is spacious with high level window, panelled ceiling and has tiled walls. The white suite comprises bath with shower over, WC and wash hand basin on vanitory unit. Chrome ladder style radiator.

Location Cartmel is a highly desirable and picturesque village renowned for the world famous steeplechase meetings (Cartmel Races), the highly prized L’Enclume restaurant, Sticky Toffee Pudding, impressive architecture and Public Houses/Restaurants.

Cartmel is located approximately 20 minutes from the M6 motorway and a similar distance from the foot of Lake Windermere so is both accessible and convenient. The small Edwardian town of Grange over Sands which offers a wider range of amenities is just 5 minutes by car.
