Full property description

Stonethwaite occupies a fabulous position in the hamlet of Elterwater within the Langdale Valley in the heart of the Lake District National Park and offers fantastic views of the surrounding Lakeland countryside and mountains including Silver Howe. The detached property is just minutes from the Britannia Inn and has numerous walks on the doorstep and Ambleside just four miles away.

The versatile accommodation offers flexible living and briefly comprises entrance hall with study area, sitting dining room, drawing room, breakfast kitchen with pantry, utility room, two double en suite bedrooms and two cloakrooms to the ground floor. To the first floor are a further three bedrooms, four piece bathroom, an attic room with a cloakroom and ample eaves storage.

To compliment the main living space is The Clock House which incorporates the clock rescued from the Glasgow Western Infirmary before it was demolished and comprises a self contained, one bedroom apartment with open plan living that currently operates as a successful holiday let with much repeated business but could easily be reconfigured in to main house with a connecting door on the first floor.

This home sits in approximately 1/2 acre of delightful private gardens bordering open fields with seating and lawned areas with mature shrubbery and established trees. There is a double and single garage, ample off road parking and numerous stores and a coal bunker.

The property has been in the same family since it was built in 1959. Planning permission was originally granted for two houses on the site but the family decided to only build one. The vast accommodation has been well maintained and has double glazing and oil central heating and now offers the new owners the opportunity to reconfigure and redesign to create an amazing home to their own tastes.
