A most distinctive property, Green Dod was architect designed in the 1970s to make best use of the exclusive site and the mesmerising views and offers a unique package to the discerning purchaser. Whether you’re seeking an exclusive forever home or a rather special investment property, Green Dod provides an exceptional and modern living space with spacious open plan living spaces matched by comfortable bedrooms.

The Property
Surrounded by vibrant, mature gardens, this fine, detached residence also offers THE most dramatic views of Windermere and her surrounding Fell range; a full 180 degree vista from Lakeside to Ambleside can be enjoyed from the wrap around terrace, a great viewing platform from where to watch the Windermere Steamers as they gently glide by or a birds eye view of the amazing RAF Hercules and Typhoons on their regular fight path.

On entering the property at ground floor level, a sunny conservatory leads through to the main hallway from where three double bedrooms sit; one with en-suite, the other with access to the house bathroom and along to the glorious master bedroom, a generous, bright space with dressing area, spacious en-suite bathroom and French doors leading out to the balcony and more of that stunning view. Stairs from the entrance hall lead to the first floor accommodation and an substantial open plan sitting room with wood burning stove, study area and French doors which open up to the large wrap-around balcony.

Just off the lounge is the fourth bedroom or second lounge with direct access to the front terrace and an elegant en-suite. The dining area flows perfectly into the well fitted kitchen and out to the rear balcony and views out over the garden and waterfall towards the fell.

The Outside
The owners have created a colourful garden to include a water feature and vegetable plot. Ample parking is available within the grounds or in the integral double garage.

Green Dod is perched above the nearby tourist hot spot of Bowness, close enough to make the most of all the facilities and amenities on hand but far enough away to appreciate the peaceful location and fabulous vistas that the World’s newest UNESCO Heritage Site has to offer. The area boasts award winning schooling for all ages along with outstanding further education establishments and University campus.

The commuter is well catered for by way of Windermere railway station from where trains run regularly to Manchester and Manchester Airport. Direct trains to Euston run from Oxenholme reaching London in less than 3 hours. A super local transport system is in place by way of Stagecoach Bus Company and junction 36 of the M6 can be reached by car in just less than 20 minutes.

From Bowness-On-Windermere along the A592 heading south, past Storrs Country Hotel on the right. Just before the Motor Boat Racing Club, turn immediate onto a road with two forks. Take the right fork and head over the bridge continue straight ahead and follow the lane all the way to the top. Bear left and Green Dod can be found at the top of the lane on your right hand side.
