Superb cottage style apartment in the heart of bustling Bowness offering 2/3 bedrooms with 2 bathrooms and that all important off road parking.

Chapel House at 8 Bank Terrace is a super 2/3 bedroomed cottage style apartment providing modern, comfortable living in the very heart of Bowness on Windermere. Tucked away from the main thoroughfare, a hop, skip and jump from all amenities, the property sits along a short terrace of similar properties and would suit a variety of purchasers including those looking for a residential home, an investment or holiday rental opportunity. Neatly presented, 8 Chapel House has been well cared for by the present owners offering super facilities set against a neutral colour scheme and more importantly, is in 'ready to move into' condition.

The Accommodation

From the front, step into a shared hallway and into a spacious and comfortable lounge/dining room with gas fireplace, high ceilings and wonderful bay window allowing for plenty of light. The modern kitchen was re-modelled by the vendors a couple of years ago and now provides a great work space for the modern cook with integrated appliances and a useful breakfast bar that doubles as extra work space. A stable door provides direct access to the rear and a private parking space for one vehicle.

Bedrooms & Bathrooms

The bedroom accommodation sits on the lower ground floor and provides two good bedrooms, one kingsize with access to a newly refurbished, modern en-suite bathroom with shower over bath, handbasin and wc and one super king with built in wardrobe. There's a third, single bedroom and a well appointed house shower room with good sized cubicle, handbasin and wc.

Outside

There is private, off road parking for one car to the rear of the property. A small sitting out area to the front is shared between no. 8 and no. 8a.

Location

Set in the heart of this thriving tourist hotspot, the location is convenient for a good selection of convenience stores, bars, restaurants and independent retailers. England's largest Lake is a short walk from the property where you'll find the famous Windermere Steamers that cruise up and down the lake against a backdrop of magnificent scenery and UNESCO's newest World Heritage Site. A walk in the other direction brings you to Windermere town where you'll find Booths Supermarket and more interesting shops. For the commuter, the railway station at Windermere links with the mainline station at Oxenholme, giving speedy access to Edinburgh, Manchester and London Euston. There is easy access to the M6 motorway, within a 30 minutes drive to J36.

Rental Potential

8 Chapel House would make a lovely home but is extremely well suited to the second home market. In our opinion and based on the apartment sleeping 4, the property should achieve in the region of 38 weeks per annum giving an estimated, gross annual income of £22,000.
