This stunning Victorian property has been lovingly upgraded by the current vendors to provide a warm, welcoming yet truly stunning home.
The design of this property means you feel like you are in your own period residence yet is actually the entire front half of the original Gentleman’s Residence and provides one of four properties in the development, with Michael’s Nook being attached to only one of the other dwellings.

This unique home is equally suited as a main residence, holiday home or a retirement base due to the management company which deals with almost every eventuality and which can truly absorb all the hassle of a large home, giving purchasers the ability to ‘lock up and leave’.
The location of the property in Grasmere allows the beauty of the Lake District National Park and all of its world heritage status to be explored from this very central point. Both internally and externally this property is all about the views - being south facing and looking through the mature gardens towards Silver Howe and Loughrigg there are opportunities galore to watch the view change throughout all the seasons.

Approached through electrically operated entrance gates and a tarmac driveway which serves the four properties the grounds provide a stunning setting, totalling around 3 acres. There is ample room for parking along with a garage within easy reach of the private, south-facing terrace set to the front of the house.

To the ground floor is the stunning entrance vestibule which is almost a garden room in its own right, and which links perfectly into the dining-hallway. The open mahogany staircase is equally impressive and is flanked by matching panelling to the walls with a beautiful parquet flooring which continues into the very spacious drawing room, with feature bay window to the front, alternative views to the side and a feature fire place.

The sitting room has two bay windows and a feature fireplace and links seamlessly with the kitchen. The ground floor is completed by the WC and side porch.

To the first floor can be found four bedrooms and four bathrooms, all of which are equipped with Villeroy and Boch suites, with the Principal bedroom occupying the entire westerly wing. These are all set around the spacious landing with its mahogany balustrade.

The cellar is a real surprise, offering additional accommodation which includes a large utility room providing a space akin to the traditional ‘back kitchen’ which could allow the sitting room and existing kitchen to be linked together with any caterers tucked away. There is also a wine cellar, well equipped office and a store room.
With the southerly aspect of the house the focus from nearly every window is towards the stunning Lakeland views.

To the front of the property can be found a substantial terrace for the use of this property only. From here there are of course the spectacular views and a selection of manageable planted borders.

The main grounds include a south facing lawn and a variety of pathways leading through the well-established and mature gardens which house a number of well-established shrubs, specimen trees and even a communal greenhouse and Gardener’s store with WC and basin.
