The Chance To Become Beatrix Potter's Neighbour

Coming to market - Howe End - a beautiful five bedroom residence with a two bedroom cottage in the heart of the Lake District near Ambleside.

We are delighted to offer for sale, Howe End, a most impressive country house in the heart of the Lake District National Park. The property is situated in the highly sought after village of Far Sawrey, almost next door to where Beatrix Potter lived. This five bedroom house has great charm and character and retains many of its original features. Set in 1.6 acres of garden it also  comes with a two bedroom cottage. In need of some renovation, it offers a wonderful opportunity for someone to make their mark and breathe new life into the house.

Being offered for sale through the Kendal office of H&H Land & Estates, Howe End is being sold by auction on Friday 6th May at the Town Hall, Kendal at 2.30pm.

For anyone looking for a rural retreat this house is ideally placed. It is surrounded by breath-taking scenery and is close to Esthwaite Water and the shores of Lake Windermere. There is a highly regarded pub just down the road and a church and a village hall, so it is close to all essentials.

“We are really excited about this beautiful property – untouched by intrusive modernisation it is a rare find in the current market“ enthuses Helena White, Chartered Surveyor with H&H Land & Estates. “The current owner has lived at Howe End for over thirty years, taking great enjoyment both from the house and the superb, landscaped gardens. I urge all interested parties to view in person to truly appreciate this wonderful property.”

The main house was extended in the Georgian period, giving particularly well-proportioned and elegant rooms to the north wing. With three reception rooms to choose from, a spacious kitchen and pantry with stone flagged floor and five bedrooms, there is plenty of space for a large family or for hosting visitors.  

Howe End Cottage, adjoining Howe End was added at a later date and has two bedrooms and has potential to either be incorporated into the main house, or used as a holiday let or annexe.  

There are many ways in which Howe End could be developed and it is likely to be hotly contested. Such large and well placed properties are few and far between and in great demand. 

Those wishing to view the property, should contact our Kendal office on 01539 721375.
