From lusting over mansions to county estates and beach getaways to a cabin in the woods, there’s a dream home out there for every personality.
Whether you’re planning on buying or not, having a nosey at the houses is good fun.
If you’re looking for a private property with your own lakefront, jetty and stunning views of Lake Coniston and the mountains beyond, then this is the property for you.
However, you’ll need a spare £3.5 million sitting around to own this beautiful four bed property.
Take a look inside this Coniston home…
The property, Deer Close, was built in 2019 and is a modern passive home, built with air source heat pump, solar panels and mechanical vent heat reclamation.
The modern contemporary build is designed in harmony with the stunning surroundings as outdoor render and stonework blend with the landscape.
Deer Close also features broad windows, patio doors, terraces and balconies to take in the sights.
It is set on a six-acre plot featuring 200 metres of private lake frontage and a jetty in addition to a natural woodland, interspersed with free-flowing streams and natural ponds. This property is a haven for wildlife, brimming with seasonal flowers and specimen trees.
The site was originally the gardener’s cottage for neighbouring property The Heald, formerly owned by author Arthur Ransome.
Apparently, he would sit in the garden of the cottage and take inspiration for his novels from the idyllic surroundings and incredible vistas over the lake.
The inner of the property is just as impressive, with bright light oak and glass double doors that flow into the living room.
Soak up the sun on a large balcony and enjoy underfloor heating on those colder days.
Tap water comes straight from a private stream on the property which is filtered with UV.
With four double bedrooms, a pantry area and a cloak and boot room, you won’t be short of storage at Deer Close.
