Full description:DIRECTIONS Leaving Grange along Main Street, proceed to the mini roundabout and take the first left-hand turn into Windermere Road. Continue along Windermere Road and proceed up the hill out of Grange. At the brow, take a left-hand turn signposted for Hampsfield House. Continue through the stone pillars and along the private road for ¾ of a mile, passing through the woodland and over the cattle grid. As you drive through the grazing land, you will reach an electronic metal gate which opens to reveal Hampsfield House and grounds.
LOCATION Located within the Lake District National Park, Hampsfield House enjoys a stunning hilltop location with breath-taking views. Built in the 1880s, the stately home was stylishly converted into individual luxury dwellings in 2002/2003. Nestled in a private and secluded location on the edge of the bustling Edwardian town of Grange, the apartment is within easy reach of shops, cafes, renowned butchers, popular promenade and two golf courses.
Hampsfield House is also ideally placed to take full advantage of all that the South Lakes has to offer, the footpath to Hampsfell crossing the private driveway and being only a ten-minute drive from the shores of Lake Windermere and twenty minutes from junction 36 of the M6 motorway.
