The £2.5m Lake District mansion with its own Windermere jetty

An idyllic Cumbrian mansion is on the market for more than £2million, overlooking the country’s largest lake.

Built in the 1930s, the house on the shores of Windermere – called Yew Tree – was rebuilt and extended two decades ago to expand its family accommodation.

The house on Newby Bridge Road, which is on the market for a cool £2.4m, has all main rooms facing west over the water to take full advantage of the lake to Coniston Old Man and the Langdales.

Outside there is a large paved terrace with glazed balcony screen immediately overlooking the lake, with steps down to a lower terraced seating area.

The gardens also include terracing and steps with outside lighting leading down the garden. In the garden you can find mature Cedar and Acer trees.

And the direct access to the lake extends by 43 feet, including beach and paved slipway access. There is also a large 40 foot stone and timber jetty (9 feet wide).

With a modern kitchen and appliances and four bath and shower rooms, there is luxury throughout the house to match the amazing views.

And with a master bedroom and five double bedrooms, there is plenty of room for a large family and to have guests round for parties and social events.

Yew Tree comes with its own in-house security and CCTV system and has parking for up to eight cars.

The property comes freehold.

Windermere-based Hackney & Leigh estate agents are managing the sale.
