A STUNNING cottage on a short terrace comprising of just three properties is up for sale in the Lake District.

The terraced home, at Woodland Grove in Windermere, offers three storey living full of character and charm.

Period features include a flagged floor on the ground floor, wide stripped pine floorboards upstairs, period fireplaces, painted boarded doors, exposed roof timbers and an exposed and painted stone wall.

The cottage has been modernized in a gentle, sympathetic and tasteful fashion to complement the original features.

The cottage would make a great first or second home and with an undeniable charm it will no doubt appeal to the holiday lettings market.

Woodland Grove is tucked away off the main thoroughfare making it a quiet and very accessible place to live.

The main entrance to the cottage is a solid oak door which opens into the kitchen diner, boasting a Lakeland slate flagged floor.

The room has a window seat which makes the perfect spot to sit and relax with a cup of tea.

There are fitted cabinets and appliances along one wall with space for a dining table in front of the feature period painted cast iron fire surround.

Also on the ground floor is the sitting room featuring an open fire set on a slated hearth under a painted wooden lintel.

A wooden framed, glazed stable door looks out and opens to the garden.

Up on the first floor is the first bedroom which is spacious with an Art Nouveau style cast iron fireplace.

The second bedroom is also of a good size.

The characterful bathroom features a roll top three quarter bath as well as a shower unit and glass screen.

Up on the second floor is the most impressive of the three bedrooms, boasting generous amounts of space which is flooded in light by a large skylight and other windows which allow for natural sunlight from both sides.

Outside is a slated seating terrace which provides plenty of room for garden furniture.

The property is currently on the market for a guide price of £400,000.
