This traditional Arts and Crafts Lakeland property offers stunning panoramic views over Staveley valley.
The Heaning is a pretty Lakeland gentleman’s residence built circa 1870 occupying an elevated position just outside the popular Lake District village of Windermere. Overlooking Staveley valley, an area of rolling countryside interspersed with woods, hedges and drystone walls, the property offers stunning panoramic views of the surrounding area.
The main house has been lovingly restored to retain many of the period features including a wood panelled reception hall with a seat window, an open fire and a beautiful Arts and Crafts staircase rising to a galleried landing. The drawing room also displays decorative coving and a feature fireplace. A cosy farmhouse kitchen fitted with an Aga can also be found on the ground floor, alongside a flagstone floored study with a wood burning stove. Upstairs, there are four generous bedrooms, two of which are en suite and a third family bathroom.
The property would suit a family with ponies or dogs: it is set in approximately 4 acres of mature gardens with stabling, paddocks and dog kennels with internal runs. A croquet lawn and a summer house offer the perfect place to wile away long summer evenings. It also boasts 4 self contained cottages, which would make excellent holiday lets.
The Heaning is set in an extremely convenient location for the attractions of the Lake District National Park, the amenity and facilities of the market town of Kendal (8 miles) and Windermere (1.5 miles).
The guide price is £1.65m. For further information please contact Carter Jonas on 01539 722592.
