Description Quarry Cottage is a super prospect for many different purchasers. Ideal for down-sizers, those looking for a tranquil bolt-hole, first time buyers or smaller families perhaps. Definitely those with a little imagination and know how with the possible potential to develop the cellar rooms maybe? The property could perhaps do with a little ‘refresh’ here and there, but the basics along with the undeveloped cellar rooms, views and location, make this a very interesting prospect indeed.

This delightful, property which is located within the Lake District National Park enjoys such a wonderful setting with tranquility, bird song and pleasing views!

The entrance door leads into the Hallway with ceramic tiled floor, shallow cloaks cupboard and shelving. The Kitchen is well proportioned and fitted with a range of wall and base cabinets with matching worktops and white sink. Integrated electric oven and gas hob. Space for fridge freezer and washing machine. The window gives a lovely outlook to the quarry rock face and next doors charming gardens!

The Lounge/Diner is very spacious with understairs cupboard and large window to the rear with window seat which provides pleasant views towards open countryside. The stairs lead to the First Floor Landing with recessed cupboard. Bedroom 1 is a double Bedroom with a large ‘Velux’ window and charming country views. Eaves storage. Bedroom 2 is a generously proportioned single Bedroom with pleasant aspect to the crag. The Shower Room has a modern white suite comprising corner shower, WC and wash hand basin. The walls are fitted with marble effect shower boarding.

To the front this property has parking for 2 cars and space to create a forecourt garden area perhaps. The backdrop with the quarry cliff face is wonderful. To the rear (access around the side) is the enclosed Garden and access to the Cellar Rooms. The Garden is perhaps not quite looking its best at the moment but does have a good area of grass. It is easy to imagine with the peace, tranquility and pleasing views what a little haven this area could become with some dedicated green fingers.

There is a full height external door which leads into the Cellar Rooms of which there are 3 of varying sizes and with varying head height!! 2 have the original curved brick ceilings and 1 houses the wall mounted LPG central heating boiler. Subject to the relevant building consents and making them water tight etc this space could become additional living accommodation for a dependant relative? Guest Suite? Music/Hobbies room?? Spacious home office? Or, perhaps, with the addition of a spiral staircase could be incorporated into the main home??

Location The village of Meathop is peaceful with a semi-rural feel and is located within the Lake District National Park. Although the location is tranquil and relaxed, Meathop is also very convenient and accessible just 0.7 miles from the A590. There is easy access to the M6 Motorway, Kendal and the Furness peninsula. Grange over Sands is the nearest town for supplies and has amenities such as Primary School, Medical Centre, Post Office, Library, Railway Station, Shops/Cafes and Tearooms and is popular with residents and holiday makers alike.

From Meathop the base of Lake Windermere can be reached in around 15-20 minutes and the delights of the inner lakes just a little longer. Wonderful walks can be enjoyed from the doorstep.

To reach the property travel along the A590 from the M6 heading towards Grange over Sands. Take the first left on Meathop Roundabout and then first left (almost immediately) onto the country lane which takes you into Meathop. As you reach the ‘Y’ keep left and follow the road almost to the end. As you reach the cluster of properties, turn right on the left hand bend and go behind the barn conversions. Quarry Cottage is on the left just before the dividing fence.
