The property

Cunsey is a wonderful apartment, one of four in a terraced slate townhouse in Windermere.

This delightful second floor apartment has been meticulously renovated to provide modern luxury and convenience, whilst still giving integrity to the history and location of the property.

Perhaps the funkiest apartment from the four, you step in and the first thing you see is the elevated library area with seating.

Then it’s onto the open plan living area with quirky pink lighting and modern artwork.

The stylish and well-equipped kitchen has a breakfast bar, from where you can admire the views of the town and treetops through the Juliet balcony.

Also in the living area is a cosy sitting area with gas fire, and separate to this are three spacious bedrooms all with king-size double beds, which have whitewashed vaulted ceilings and beams and wooden floors, as well as old style radiators.

One of these bedrooms also has an en-suite wet room shower.

After a day’s walking or enjoying one of a number of other activities in the area, you can return and relax with a soak in the bath, with the bathroom also having slate flooring and underfloor heating.

Situated in the heart of Windermere, this apartment is a two minute walk into the hub of Windermere with its array of shops, bars and restaurants.

Just a 10 minute walk away from this welcoming apartment is the train station where you can take a trip to Staverley.

Here you can discover the stunning but lesser populated Kentmere Valley or try the local Hawkshead brewery.

Carrying on up the hill from the train station is Orrest Head, where you can walk to the top in a mere 20 minutes’ and see one of the finest views of the layering Lakeland fells and length of Lake Windermere.

A perfect choice of apartment for a holiday or breakaway at any time of year.
