Tucked away along a quiet lane in a truly enviable, elevated position on the Western side of Lake Windermere, this special property is a real rarity to the market. Commanding unrivalled, panoramic views over Lake Windermere in a private and tranquil setting, Brant Howe is sure to appeal to a range of buyers, either as a permanent residence or fantastic holiday home. Within the same ownership for the past 12 years, the property and grounds have been developed over that time to include an extension and extensive landscaping. The property now offers accommodation split over two floors with living accommodation upstairs to take advantage of the stunning lake views. Attractive slate steps lead up from the private drive and car park for six cars to the solid oak front door of the property, framed by borders stocked with an array of mature plants and making an attractive entrance to this welcoming home. The good size entrance hall has a useful cloaks cupboard and built in storage. The hallway leads on to two generously sized double bedrooms, both with built in storage and both with lovely views – one of the lake and one of woodland. Opposite the bedrooms is a fully tiled shower room with w.c., and utility cupboards fitted with plumbing for a washing machine.
