Gate House – Beautiful Georgian property Nr Coniston village Lake District
Following a year of major refurbishment works ending in May 2016, this magnificent Georgian property has undergone a complete transformation. Located a stone’s throw from Coniston village (less than a third of a mile), set on the road to the striking and historical Coppermines Valley lies this spacious Georgian home.
From its peaceful situ the house enjoys delightful aspects overlooking the open fields to the front and the bubbling Church Beck to the rear. Whilst the outside of the property offers areas of solitude and calm, it is inside where the real allure of this beautiful home can be found. In essence Gate House is a beautiful house that has been lovingly transformed into a dream home. The perfect place for romantics, families, friends and outdoor enthusiasts alike.
