Greystones is a stylish fully renovated Victorian townhouse ideally situated just a five minute walk from the centre of Keswick. A spacious, light and contemporary house where the owners have thought of everything for your holiday comfort.
The house is accessible from both the front and the rear. The front entrance opens into a vestibule with plenty of hooks for coats and space for shoes (if you've been out on the fells, please use the rear entrance, where there is storage for muddy gear in the utility/boot room). The contemporary floor tiles in the hallway add a modern twist to this Victorian townhouse and complement the original features - ceiling roses, cornices, sash windows and so on - that have been lovingly restored by the owners.
Like the rest of the house, the high ceilings of the living room make for a light and airy feel. Comfortable seating in the form of two three-seater sofas and an armchair in muted tones are set off by accents of bright green. A wood burning stove, large Smart TV (internet enabled with Netflix, Amazon Prime and other Apps), DVD player and large DVD collection, wireless bluetooth speaker, free Wi-Fi and telephone for incoming calls and free local calls make Greystones a home from home.
The theme of stylish comfort is continued as you walk through the house, with underfloor heating in the kitchen and adjoining dining area. The kitchen is striking in its sleek modernity, with glossy white cupboards and a large breakfast bar attended by four neat stools. The kitchen has just about everything that any discerning adults could require for hosting a small dinner party, equipped with various sizes of pots, pans, baking dishes, soup/smoothie jug blender, electric handheld chopper/whisk/blender, a cafetiere, Nespresso Coffee Machine with milk frother, serving dishes, slate cheeseboard and, of course, Champagne flutes and an ice bucket. There are two ovens (one fan-assisted and the other a conventional oven and grill), a combination microwave and grill, as well as a Neff five ring gas hob. A tall fridge-freezer and a dishwasher complete the kitchen facilities. The dining area adjoins the kitchen in an 'L-shape' and seats up to four people.
Open the door in the dining area and you'll find the utility/boot room and separate WC. The washing machine and tumble drier is stored here, as well as access to the courtyard.
The courtyard is paved and contains a large patio table placed underneath the kitchen window, so that guests can catch the evening summer sun while still chatting with the cook in the kitchen. Tubs of bamboo carry through the sophisticated style from the house to the exterior. Bikes can be stored in the courtyard (but are done so at the owners' risk). Parking is usually available on the road outside the property or in the neighbouring roads, however, a large double gate opens out into the alleyway behind the courtyard and it is possible to park a small to medium car within the courtyard area.
Upstairs are two lovely airy bedrooms, each featuring a king size bed adorned with down duvets and pillows, Egyptian cotton bed linen and pocket-sprung mattresses. If any of the guests are allergic to feathers, there is a synthetic duvet and pillows in one of the wardrobes. Tall double wardrobes and chests of drawers with plenty of space for clothing, blackout Roman blinds and upholstered bedroom ottomans also feature. Both bedrooms are also equipped with a hairdryer. The front Master bedroom has an en-suite shower room with WC, heated towel rail and walk-in rainfall type shower head with a second, adjustable shower head for that touch of added luxury.
The walk-in rainfall and adjustable shower heads are replicated in the separate family bathroom, which also includes a luxury, free standing bath, WC and heated towel rail.
There are more bedrooms on the second floor, but these are restricted to use by the cottage owners.
