Braegarth occupies an elevated and enviable position above Elterwater Common with a backdrop of the Langdale Pikes, it's probably one of the most photographed views of the National Park. On the outskirts of the village with a sunny south facing aspect and open views surrounded by beautiful Lakeland garden. Close to the local pub The Britannia Inn and the Co-op stores Chapel Stile.
A traditional stone built Lakeland cottage which has been tastefully extended to create a spacious, well planned and comfortable 3 bedroom detached house. All the rooms have pleasant views towards the garden or over the common towards the fells. The garden extends over roughly two acres and encompasses a stream, waterfall, rockery and lots of mature shrubs and plants including colourful rhododendrons and azaleas. The cottage is double fronted and benefits from a substantial porch with flagged floor and pine bench seat.
Leading from the porch into the living and dining room, separated with a hand built central oak dresser, designed and crafted by local cabinet maker Philip Bowness. Oak table and chairs for 6 at one end and 2 Duresta sofas and chairs for 6 people to sit in comfort at the other, facilities include flatscreen TV, dvd player and MP3 player. The living room benefits from multifuel stove and fossil granite fire surround and both areas have good views over the Common.
The good quality fitted kitchen has units to three sides, Italian limestone flagstone floor, corian worktops, dishwasher, oven and hob. Access from the kitchen or living area into the garden room with it's own glass dining table and chairs, which takes in lovely views of the garden. Just off the kitchen is a laundry room, with fitted units, washer and separate tumble dryer. Off the hallway is a downstairs cloakroom with wc and wash hand basin, and internal door leading to an integral garage, now permanently converted into a games room with full size table tennis table. Great for the kids and the occasional wet rainy day. Membership to the Langdale hotel swimming pool and facilities are also included, see below for more details.
On the first floor a large landing area leads to the master bedroom with triple aspect, built in wardrobes, beautiful view and ensuite bathroom with bath, shower, wc and wash hand basin. The second bedroom has dual aspect and lovely views, twin beds and fitted wardrobes. The third bedroom has fitted wardrobes and a single bed leaving plenty of space to stretch out. A separate bathroom on this floor has wc, wash hand basin, and separate shower.
Outside the property is approached by a private gated driveway with plenty of parking for 3 cars. Within the gardens is a small summerhouse with it's own electric and patio area and BBQ.
Please note: Due to the nature of the gardens, stream and shallow pond area, children of all ages should be closely supervised at all times.
