A DETACHED house by the shores of Windermere is the most expensive property for sale in the county.

With five bedrooms and its own boathouse, the Bowness property is on the market for £2.8 million.

It is situated at Storrs Park, 'arguably the most desirable area in Bowness' according to estate agents Hackney and Leigh.

A listing posted on RightMove said: "No expense has been spared on this property, providing a unique home set apart from other properties in the area."
