Your first glimpse of Brandlehow’s unique location comes as you meander along the private woodland road seeing the stunning lake shore first and then this period Lakeland residence comes into view. Nestled at the foot of Catbells and one we believe of only a handful of properties within such close proximity to the Derwentwater lake shore, this is not only a stunning location but a property that is so rare that it could be another 30 years before another comes to market. Brandlehow is built on solid rock at the bottom of one of Wainwright’s favourite mountains and is staged over two floors. Each window throughout the property is blessed with lake views or has a woodland outlook. Internally some modernisation is likely but a chance for the buyer to make this their own for another 30 years to come. The current owners have told us about visitors they have received by boat that have moored at the jetty since their ownership. Also the double garage that has got a global following with the “Teddy in the Window” that receives cards from people all over the world making this another piece of the Lake District’s rich tapestry. Manesty is one of the most peaceful corners of the Borrowdale Valley, located between the lakeland villages of Grange and Portinscale and has a wealth of walks on the doorstep and outdoor pursuits nearby. Excellent amenities, schools, leisure facilities, marina, shops and restaurants are close by in the market town of Keswick, which also has excellent transport links to Cockermouth, Penrith, M6 and A66.
