    About this property

    • Built in 1906 as a gentleman's rural retreat, set in a quiet part of the Lake District National Park, in the heart of the Ullswater Valley, between Pooley Bridge and Glenridding, Ravenoaks is a rare opportunity to acquire ownership of a wonderful, traditional, link-detached, Lakeland house found in excellent order having been lovingly and painstakingly renovated by our clients through the period of their ownership. Set in an elevated position, the house is approached by a sweeping drive, the fields to either side included in the sale, which, being gently sloping, would be ideal for equestrian use. A strip of mature woodland screens the property from the roadside, also housing a tennis court which would require recommissioning. In total the land covers circa 11.44 acres. Heavily influenced by the Arts & Crafts movement, the property is built from local stone and internally retains many of the original features, the ground floor showing wonderful examples of the oak wood panelling, decorative mouldings and fireplaces which were so typical of the time. From the parking area, the front vestibule, with original leaded stained glass in oak frames opens into the reception hallway, which has the main staircase to the first floor. Open to the hallway is the dining area, which in turn leads to the lounge at the front of the property, which has a feature fireplace with Clearview wood burning stove and greatly enjoys a corner aspect with views to the garden and lake beyond. Also linked to the dining area is a peaceful drawing room with bay window into the garden. To the left of the reception hallway is the kitchen breakfast room, which has a range of modern fitted units, LPG gas stove in an oak fireplace and French doors leading to a private terrace overlooking the Lake and gardens. The adjacent scullery also has a range of modern units, with a Belfast style sink and serves as additional cooking space with fitted hob and also as a utility with plumbing for a washing machine and a separate downstairs WC with glazed tiling. Beyond the kitchen a rear hallway gives access to the first floor via the second staircase, has a door down to the cellars and leads to the study / optional 6th bedroom. From the first floor main landing the principle bedrooms occupy the corners looking out towards Helvellyn, each having ensuite bathrooms. The third bedroom faces the same southerly direction as the master and second bedrooms, with the fourth bedroom overlooking Ullswater to the fells beyond. This bedrooms leads to the rear landing, which has a further four-piece bathroom again overlooking the lake, and the 5th bedroom which forms the end of the property along with the internal staircase connecting with the rear hallway and kitchen breakfast room below. Sure to attract strong interest. It is not often that such a highly desirable country property with land becomes available for sale.
