Kildonan House is a spacious and comfortable 1930s gem in the heart of Keswick. Sleeping six people in three large bedrooms (with the option of sleeping eight by converting one of the living rooms) and benefiting from flexible socialising spaces, it makes an ideal holiday home for a family or group of friends keen to explore the town and its magnificent surroundings. The owners have made the most of the light offered by the large bay windows and the lovely period features by using a fresh colour palette and well chosen local photography to make it a very special holiday home.
On arrival at the house guests enter the entrance hall via the front door with its gorgeous Art Deco windows. To the right is the light elegant main living room. It has fresh, bright decor enhanced by the lovely large bay window, two deep comfy sofas and an armchair arranged around the gas coal effect fire and television. Guests can make use of the BluRay player, Freesat Sky TV and Apple TV for entertainment. Across the main hallway is the second living room. Another lovely light room, this space is ideal if you have teens or tweens in your party who would like to commandeer their own space, no more arguments over the remote control! The room has a sofa, snuggler chair and electric fire, a Smart TV with Freesat and a BluRay player. This sofa can be made up as a king-sized bed making a handy downstairs bedroom if you need to accommodate eight people or if any members of your party have more limited mobility.
Moving through to the back of the house the space has been utilised incredibly well to make the most of the period features and the available light. The open plan kitchen and dining room is a gorgeous modern space with exposed beams in the dining area. The kitchen is very well equipped with a five ring induction hob, a built-in eye-height fan oven and grill, a large fridge freezer, microwave, bluetooth speaker, dishwasher and all the crockery and cookware you'll need for your stay. The dining area has plenty of space for your group to enjoy long post dinner conversations planning your Keswick adventures.
Also in the back of the house is a lovely downstairs shower room with a large enclosure and separate WC, once again making life easier for members of the party who struggle with stairs. There's bags of utility space too with a washing machine, tumble dryer, a Belfast sink and plenty of storage space for muddy boots and coats. Opening out from the dining area is a lovely conservatory with a small sofa and an armchair, it's ideal for bringing in more light but it's also a comfy space to enjoy a book or a quiet morning cuppa.
Heading upstairs via the light spacious landing you reach the bedrooms and family bathroom. At the front of the house is the first of the king-size bedrooms. It has a USB charging point, a wardrobe and dresser for storage as well as one of the magnificent bay windows looking out on to the street at the front and the peaks in the distance beyond Keswick's rooftops. The twin room benefits from the same lovely view and has a wardrobe and dresser for storage too. Across the landing to the back of the house is the second king-size bedroom. It has a modern fresh feel about it with a wardrobe and bedside tables with storage space and lovely views to Skiddaw and Latrigg. The family bathroom is on this side of the house, it's another spacious room with a bath and curved shower enclosure with a power shower. Also on this floor is another separate WC.
Kildonan benefits from excellent outside space and private parking which is such a bonus in a house this close to the centre of Keswick. The conservatory opens out on to a delightful enclosed back garden with raised flower beds and a patio with outdoor seating. Perfect for a sunny evening dinner al fresco. While the front of the house has mature shrubs and a small patio area from which you can watch the world go by. There is parking space for up to three small to medium cars (if parked blocking each other in), or two cars with the gates closed.
In all Kildonan House is a wonderfully spacious and comfortable jumping-off point from which to explore this much-loved area.
