Are you considering moving to greener pastures? The Lake District might be the spot for you.
It has just been named a UNESCO World Heritage Site, comparing it to world wonders such as the Grand Canyon and Taj Mahal. This surge in attention could bolster property prices over the coming years, so it's a great time to invest.
From Beatrix Potter to John Ruskin, this Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty has attracted plenty of notable names. Read on to see some of the best properties the Lake District has to offer.
1. The Old Vicarage, Colton, £850,000
The Old Vicarage is a stunning country house built in 1874, in an idyllic setting within the Lake District National Park. The property has been comprehensively and tastefully refurbished to create a very appealing five-bedroom, two-bathroom family home on a generous garden plot of approximately one acre.
The house is packed full of original features including fireplaces, cornicing and mouldings and the property benefits from having a sunny aspect on a quiet country lane, in a charming position overlooking the Colton valley. To the rear of the property is a cottage garden with a summer house and a small orchard to the side, all enclosed within a traditional Lakeland stone wall.
2. Meadow Brow, Grasmere, £1,995,000
Meadow Brow is a unique property located a magical setting amongst Lakeland gardens and grounds with views of the Vale of Grasmere. The home is a traditional and delightful five-bedroom residence finished to an exceptional quality, with the added advantage of two attached self-contained two-bedroom apartments, detached triple garage and a further detached cottage with the opportunity to convert it.
