General Description

Wainwright House is a traditional stone-built terraced house on a quiet street close to the centre of Keswick. The spacious flexible accommodation is arranged over 3 floors and with 3 bedrooms plus two full bathrooms this house is ideal for a family or for couples holidaying together. The back yard gets the morning sun for breakfasts or lunches alfresco and for the evening make the most of the bright modern kitchen to enjoy a sociable meal in the dining room. This house has high ceilings and stripped floorboards with cosy rugs giving it a traditional feel with a contemporary twist.

From the small enclosed front garden the front door of Wainwright House leads into a porch with hooks for coats and room for boots. A further door takes you through into the hallway, the stairs had up straight ahead and to the left of the stairs is the dining area. The solid wood dining table seats 6 and the window looks over the backyard.

An open archway connects the dining area with the comfortable and cosy living area at the front of the house where a big bay window lets in lots of light. Two sofas, a 3-seater and a 2-seater, plus 2 chairs are grouped around the rug in front of the wood-burner for lazy evenings in by the fire. The SMART TV with sound bar speaker will provide additional entertainment for cosy evenings in. There is even a SNES classic video games console (remember to bring your own games!) to keep children of all ages entertained and for those after something more traditional, there's also a selection of board games to choose from.

The kitchen is at the back of the house off the dining room, beautifully designed and finished this smart modern kitchen contains everything you need. With a practical tiled floor, full height fridge freezer, dishwasher, microwave, 4-slice toaster, eye level double oven/ grill plus a smart 4 ring electric hob with extractor hood and tiled splashback it will be no hardship doing a bit of cooking in this bright room.

At the far end of the kitchen sliding doors open up into a handy utility room with washing machine and tumble dryer plus ironing board for all your laundry needs.

Upstairs off the first half landing is a separate toilet with basin off to the left while straight ahead is a family bathroom with bath and separate shower. Spacious, bright and fully tiled with a heated towel radiator this is a lovely bathroom, perfect for a relaxing soak in the bath after a busy day. But in this cottage it is eclipsed by the bathroom off the main first floor landing and may not get a look in! Up a few more steps is a beautifully finished contemporary bathroom with walk in shower and fantastic free-standing, feature bath. You could be forgiven for thinking you are in a plush spa hotel as you make the most of this beautiful room with tiled floor, heated towel radiator and twin sinks side by side on a vanity unit.

Also off this landing to the front of the house is a spacious master bedroom with super-king bed. The window looks over the street and there is space in here to relax in peace on a 3-seater sofa too. Storage is provided in a wardrobe and separate chest of drawers.

Continuing up to the second floor with a pause to enjoy the view of Latrigg and Blencathra from the window on the half landing you will find two further bedrooms, both with sloping ceilings and lovely views. At the front is a twin with a dormer window offering panoramic views over the rooftops of the fells from Dodd all the way round past Grizedale Pike and Catbells to Walla Crag. Both beds have a bedside table and there is a chest of drawers and hanging rail. The bedroom at the back of the cottage is a cosy double, with a dormer window giving you a lovely view of Blencathra and Latrigg. There is a wardrobe with drawers beneath and a shelf for storage.

A door off the kitchen leads into the back yard, fully enclosed with a gate onto the back lane this pleasant little yard enjoys the morning sun and is a lovely spot to sit on the bench with a cup of tea. There is also a handy shed which can be made available for you and is a great space for storing bikes.
