A detached four-bedroom house with a stunning view of Lake Windermere is on the market for £1.25 million.

The property, which also features a "building plot in the garden", provides potential buyers with a unique buying opportunity.

Located on Thornbarrow Road, in Windermere, the house is from the process of a 30 year self-build project, developed into an elegant family home of nearly 2,700 sq ft.

The property listing is managed by David Britton Estates, who described the home as an immaculate piece of "Lakeland splendour" with close access to local amenities.

The house's interior is organised around a striking central hallway, complete with mezzanine style landing, exposed brickwork and wooden pillars.

There are four reception rooms on the ground floor which includes a light-filled lounge with a feature fireplace.

This room overlooks a garden with far-reaching views of the Lakeland Fells.

Also featured on the ground floor is a modern bespoke SieMatic kitchen fitted with quality appliances and a granite worksurface extending into a breakfast area.

A cloakroom, utility room, and office room complete the ground floor plan.

Above the ground floor, a galleried landing leads to four double bedrooms, two of them with ensuite facilities and a family bathroom.

Externally, the house is boosted by an elevated positioning, reached by a sweeping driveway with ample parking space.

At the foot of the garden, a building plot has been granted full permission for the construction of "a detached local occupancy restricted home"- a potential additional benefit for multi-generational families.

The house's double garage has been adapted into a single garage with an office but could be reverted back to its original purpose.

Windermere and Bowness-on-Windermere towns are situated less than a mile's walk away from the property with various local amenities including shops, cafes, and restaurants.

The area also has access to a health centre and several schools.

Reference to the property's Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) rating and Council tax banding reveals it's listed as a 'D' on the EPC and falls within the 'G' Council tax band.

As noted by David Britton Estates, this property signifies an opportunity to buy into the Lake District's charm.
