No.4 Bannisdale is a splendid 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom apartment on the first floor within the exclusive development of Cowan Head. The development has been meticulously designed and provides luxurious, riverside living located on the banks of the River Kent and on the Dales Way.
Set in 47 acres of rural picturesque land with a wide range of communal facilities, such as private riverbank fishing, indoor swimming pool with sauna, steam room and Jacuzzi together with a delightful nine-hole golf course; Cowan Head provides the rest and relaxation desired, ideal for the permanent or second home purchase. Entrance to the estate is by high-level privacy and security including remote video link to the main gated entrance. The privacy and exclusivity of owners residing at Cowan Head is maintained by a restriction against holiday letting throughout the site.
Cowan Head is only a few minutes away from the bustling villages of Windermere and Bowness with plenty of coffee shops and boutiques to explore. The market town of Kendal is conveniently located only a four mile drive, with extensive amenities and links to the West Coast main line rail service, which provides easy access to London within 2½ hours. Junction 36 of the M6 is less than a 15 minute drive.
The property itself was originally designed as a three bedroom property, but modified by the owner to create a bright and airy two bedroom apartment. The living space could be simply adapted to reinstate the third bedroom if required.

The second bedroom features a purpose built in pull down bed providing ample space for those wishing to use the room as an office or workplace. However, the room could easily be used as a large bedroom, with the fitted furniture.
