Bowfell Close dates from 1910 and was formerly the ballroom to the attached main house built by local developer GH Pattinson.

It sits on a private drive in one of the most desirable areas of Storrs Park on the periphery of Bowness-on-Windermere with views across the lake and towards the fells.

The house is mainly on one level with an entrance porch, two reception rooms and four en-suite bedrooms.

Just under two acres of private gardens include an original outdoor swimming pool, greenhouse and sweeping driveway with ample off- road parking.

Outline planning permission has been passed to replace the existing dwelling with another house.

Bowfell Close has a large dining kitchen with an excellent range of cabinets, an island unit, integrated appliances and a tiled floor with underfloor heating.

The sitting room has a full-height box bay window, vaulted ceiling and maple flooring while the adjacent master bedroom boasts similar character details along with a walk-in wardrobe and en-suite bathroom, both of which have heated limestone flooring.

There are two more en-suite bedrooms and a utility room in the main section of the property with an annex housing a small kitchen, en-suite bedroom and sitting room.
