Property of the Day: Eller How House, Lindale, Cumbria
THE PROPERTY: Built by the architect George Webster as his own family home in 1827, this eight-bedroom house is full of character. Set within 12 acres of wooded gardens and grounds, the property comprises the main house and the west wing, the latter being a self-contained holiday let with separate access and its own gardens. In the grounds there is an ornamental lake, a formal flower garden and a ruined folly. There is ample car parking and garaging.
THE LOCATION: Situated in the south of the Lake District National Park, Eller How is perfectly positioned for ease of access. The house is 10 minutes from the south of Lake Windemere and 15 minutes from the M6. Just north of Lindale village, the summer house in the grounds of the property offers sea views and a quick walk up the fell behind the house takes you through the breathtaking landscape of the Lakeland hills.
THE INTERIOR: The rooms are spacious and well-proportioned. The Main House opens into a reception hall with a Minton tiled floor and, beyond, offers five bedrooms, a drawing-room, three dry cellars and a utility-room. Meanwhile, the west wing has three en-suite bedrooms, a further open-plan kitchen and dining-room, a utility-room and a sitting-room.
WHY WE LOVE IT: The impressive columned porch in front of the main house makes for a striking entrance.
