Routen House occupies a highly favoured south facing position above Ennerdale Water overlooking the lake and surrounding Lakeland Fells. This is a secluded position in beautiful rolling countryside approached via a narrow country lane which leads to and terminates at the lake itself, offering access to enchanting walks along the lakeshore and into the surrounding hills.
Whilst enjoying a sense of remote solitude, the house is in fact easily accessible from the A5086, Cockermouth to Egremont road, via Kirkland and Croasdale. A full range of amenities, schooling, etc. are available at the attractive Georgian market town of Cockermouth, approximately 11 miles to the north.
Formerly a Victorian farmhouse providing well-proportioned accommodation of great character, the property is currently utilised for holiday lettings, but would be equally suited for use as a substantial principal residence. Offering on the ground floor: three large reception rooms, a farmhouse breakfast/kitchen, plus utility room, wc and central hallway. On the first floor there are four double bedrooms and main house bathroom with a further two en-suite double bedrooms on the second floor. Outside, the garden areas extend to three sides of the property and include two small paddocks and a substantial field to the south. An attractive stream runs along the western boundary of the paddocks and field, eventually feeding into Ennerdale Water.
