Guide Price £735,000
Firbank is situated in a west/south west facing position set well back from the road and completely hidden from view. The private position is approached via its own driveway which gently rises to an open parking/turning area in front of the house. From here, and from most rooms in the house, there are wonderful views over Bassenthwaite Lake and of the surrounding Lakeland fells.
The property sits on the lower slopes of Ullock Pike and Longside Edge, and behind the property the ground therefore rises steeply towards the high fells and crags above which provide a dramatic setting, and excellent opportunities for fell walking. The grounds which mainly extend behind, and to the north side of the property, are largely wooded, incorporating many interesting walkways within plus a terraced orchard area.
The house offers spacious five bedroomed accommodation centred around a lovely large reception room with stairs and spacious part-galleried landing above. Briefly the accommodation comprises on ground floor: two main reception rooms plus conservatory, dining kitchen, utility room and rear lobby, en-suite bedroom and separate family bathroom. On the first floor there are four further bedrooms, two with en-suite facilities, and a further family bathroom. The accommodation is well presented, double glazed and benefits from oil fired central heating.
