Osprey Cottage has been refurbished and extended to a high standard blending the striking combination of contemporary decor and original character. There are a couple of low beams at the cottage so just bear this in mind if you are on the tall side! The cottage is arranged over three levels and benefits from superb panoramic views across the Bassenthwaite valley. There are solid oak floors throughout and stylish Bisque radiators.
The front door opens to a hallway with a lovely wooden floor. There is a cloakroom off the hallway with washbasin, WC and space for hanging coats. There are stairs from the hallway to the lower ground floor and a second sitting room with French windows opening onto the patio. This room is decorated in a bright contemporary fashion and is ideal for children and teenagers. It is furnished with a sofa, flat screen TV and Blue Ray player.
On the first floor there is a modern kitchen with an island unit. The worktops are high quality black Silestone quartz. There is a Siemens microwave, range cooker with 5 rings and two ovens, washing machine, dishwasher, wine cooler and a full sized integrated fridge and freezer. The kitchen also has a dining table and chairs. There is no dryer but there is an indoor clothes airer and a washing line outside.
There are four stone steps from the kitchen to the main sitting room. These steps are fairly steep and may not be suitable for those with limited mobility. This room is beautifully furnished with a leather sofa and contemporary chairs. An initial supply of wood is provided for the wood burner that sits in the original sandstone recessed fireplace. There is a glazed door to the patio and garden along with two windows commanding a stunning panoramic view of Bassenthwaite Lake and the surrounding fells.
There is a carpeted oak staircase off the sitting room to a half landing where there is a shower room with a large walk in shower cubicle, WC and large washbasin. The shower room has been finished with Lakeland slate walls and floor with luxurious underfloor heating. The walk in shower features deluge and conventional chrome shower heads.
From this half landing there are several more steps lead to the bedrooms and family bathroom.
On the first floor there is a master bedroom with a king size wrought iron bed, wardrobe and views to Bassenthwaite Lake and Whinlatter Forest. This bedroom has a vaulted ceiling and exposed oak beams. Dual aspect windows also offer views to Walla Crag across Keswick.
There is a further twin bedroom and a bunk bedroom both of which have stunning views of Bassenthwaite and Whinlatter. The bunk room has usual sized bunks but may not be suitable for adults. The family bathroom on this floor has a deep bath with shower over and tiled surround, WC and elegant washbasin. Outside the bathroom is a feature stone wall.
Outside, Osprey Cottage is approached from the road via a 5 bar gate beyond which there is a gravel area for parking two cars. To the rear of the cottage is a lawned garden, flower borders and a terraced patio with table and chairs. The garden is south west facing and has an extensive panoramic view across the Bassenthwaite valley towards Whinlatter Forest, the Coledale Fells, Derwentwater and the surrounding fells.
