That location is on the edge of the village of Glenridding, which is at the southern end of Ullswater and at the base of Hellvelyn, England’s 3rd highest mountain. If outdoor activities are your thing, it’s a dream. It’s not too isolated either, with the more substantial town of Penrith not far away.

The house looks 1960s (although the agent doesn’t confirm it), with a design that takes advantage of the surrounding views. It has the look of originality inside, but that’s perhaps down to a good renovation job. This place has been used as a holiday let for some years, so is likely to have been well maintained during that time. Great midcentury look inside though. Be great if the outside culled be upgraded to the same level.
