Windermere luxury ‘gentleman’s residence’ full of period charm up for sale

An impressive luxury property that is part of one of the first gentleman’s residence to be built in Windermere is on the market.

Oakland Hall has the wow factor from its beautiful period features to its stunning lake and fell views – and makes for a perfect family home.

It has been renovated to the highest standards while retaining many of the building’s original “arts and crafts” features including impressive fire places and fantastic stained-glass windows.

And the views from the property of the Langdale Pikes and lake in Windermere are just as special as the house itself, say Hackney & Leigh who are marketing the property.

Upon entering the house through a huge set of wooden doors, you’ll find yourself in the entrance hall which leads off to the kitchen, sitting room and dining room.

The sitting room has a beautiful patterned ceiling and the original feature fireplace with wood burner. The original wooden floor bay window with window seat is the perfect place to relax while looking over the rear garden.

In the dining room you’ll find the original, restored “arts and crafts” fire place and wood burner which is described as a “fine piece of craftmanship”. There are also two large stained glass windows, original wood flooring which is all overlooked by a glass mezzanine balcony.

There is a modern kitchen with eight Velux windows and bifolding doors, meaning the space is flooded with light and gives access to the front patio which is ideal during the summer months.

The kitchen units have stunning slate worktops and there’s an inset microwave, dishwasher and wine cooler. There is a large over with six ring gas hob and hood as well as a huge American style fridge freezer island with built-in breakfast bar.

Overlooking the dining room is the mezzaine walkway which looks across to two impressive stained-glass windows which carry the original family motto “Palma Virtuti” – roughly translated as: “Fortune favours the brave”.

The property has four bedrooms which all come with en-suites, three of which can be found on the first floor. On the second floor is the fourth bedroom which has another stunning stained glass window.

There are good-sized gardens to the front and back, which both have patios, and level grass lawns. You’ll also find plenty of parking to the front – with space for eight cars – as well as a garage and car port.

This wonderful home on Carraige Drive in Windermere could be yours for £1.4m. You can find out more about the property, here.
