Full Details

Only a mile from Bowness-on-Windermere, Woodcroft is a haven of calm, positioned midway down the prestigious, private Middle Entrance Drive. Yet you are just minutes away from thriving shops, local parks, leisure centres, theatre, cinema and hospitality venues, with highly rated nurseries, primary and secondary schools nearby. Woodcroft is ideal for families looking to maximise their living space and enjoy everything living in a close-knit community offers.

Woodcroft was built in 1898 by the prestigious local developer Pattinson. They have been building in the area since the 1500's and are responsible for constructing many of Windermere's landmark properties, such as the Windermere Hotel, Windermere Station, St Mary's Church and the Belsfield Hotel. On an elevated plot of approximately 1.42 acres, finished with beautiful mature tiered gardens, with over 6000 square feet of internal floor area and a swimming pool that can be used for most of the year, Woodcroft offers an amazing opportunity rarely seen in the area.

Before entering the property, you're met with an expansive driveway tucked away behind a private intercom entrance, which has enough parking space for several vehicles - 10 cars will easily fit on the parking area. The driveway also gives access to an integrated garage/workshop space and provides more than enough turning space to easily enter and exit the property.

Stepping through the front door into the entrance hallway the first thing you will appreciate is the space itself and how light floods the area. Tastefully finished, the hallway has a handy cloakroom, two storage spaces and a washroom as well as the entrances to the main sitting room, dining room and the kitchen/living area. The dining room and main sitting room are both dual aspect and are flooded with natural light with amazing views out over the garden and surrounding landscape. Both rooms are elegantly finished with Georgian cornices and each has its own feature fireplace.

The kitchen and living area is a versatile space which also provides the entrance to the cellar and utility room. The galley style kitchen is a solid built traditional design with views over the garden and has fully integrated appliances. It leads into a generous sized breakfast room which is perfect for early morning coffees or breakfast. This room leads onto an outdoor patio seating area perfect for an evening glass of wine while the sky is flooded with those sunset colours. The adjoining living room is warm, cosy and has a stunning feature fireplace with original Victorian tiling and a log burner. With ample space for all the family to relax, again it is hard not to notice how the room is flooded with light and appreciate the overall feel of the house. There is also a French door leading out to the same patio area as the breakfast room, adding to the overall flow and versatility of the house.

The first room as you head up the stairs is a single bedroom, perfect for a little one, with adjoining washroom and storage cupboard. As you follow the beautiful staircase round to the master bedroom, it's hard not to take a moment to appreciate the level of finish. The master bedroom has its own modern ensuite bathroom complete with a stunning stand-alone bath. Both the master bedroom and the 2nd bedroom situated on the lake view side of the house have French doors and a balcony overlooking the lake, fells and surrounding countryside. In summer, what could be better than waking up to the sound of birdsong and enjoying your morning coffee al-fresco on the balcony?

There are a further three large and another single bedroom over the first and second floors, each larger bedroom with enough space for a king-size bed, full set of bedroom furniture and PC work station/study area. The space offered by all the bedrooms is staggering and the sheer amount of light in each room is something you can't help but appreciate as you walk around Woodcroft.

The first and second floors both have a large traditional family bathroom and there is a useful lobby area on the second floor that gives you another taste of those stunning views over Windermere and the surrounding fells. The first floor also has a large home office and gym/playroom, which can be refigured to bedrooms if needed. The number and size of the rooms upstairs gives you endless options if you want to get creative. There is also a large space in the loft that could easily be converted and is already a really useful storage space.

Surrounding the property are established, tiered gardens that offer ample opportunity to seek both sunshine and shade as well as several 'al fresco' dining areas, which are perfect for entertaining guests as Woodcroft serves up spectacular views of Windermere and the surrounding fells. The sunset views are some of the best that the Lake District has to offer, giving out a vast array of colour and tranquillity. Woodcroft will give you these moments in abundance from the peaceful setting of your own garden.
