Lake District home with rare Unesco views goes on the market

A UNIQUE Lake District home that comes complete with one of the most exquisite panoramic mountain views in the world has been placed on the market.

White Stones, in the incredible Bassenthwaite Valley, near Keswick, is an elegant five bedroom property lovingly brought to life by its owners.

Sitting in an acre of landscaped grounds with a sweeping driveway and terrace, it is being marketed by estate agency Fine & Country for £1.5 million.

While beautifully presented inside and out, it is the breathtaking views across the national park - now designated a Unesco World Heritage site - that are set to astound anyone who enters.

Nick Miller, property expert and owner of Fine & Country North Cumbria, said the windows provided a living artwork reminiscent of a fine landscape painting.

“White Stones is a beautiful home with a truly unique setting in the Lake District National Park looking across the Bassenthwaite Valley towards the Lakeland fells,” he said.

“The views are timeless, quite literally, and the landscape is now designated as globally significant by Unesco.

“It’s rare a property like this comes onto the market, offering sweeping vistas that are totally unspoilt.

“It will give its new owners the kind of tranquility hard to find anywhere in the UK while it is just a few miles from the bustling market town of Keswick.

“The opportunities in this area for anyone who enjoys walking or climbing are magical, but equally White Stones would be perfect for those who want to sit and relax while they take in this view.”

The Lake District was inscribed as a Unesco World Heritage site in July 2017. The status is bestowed upon places of global historical or cultural importance.

White Stones makes the most of its magnificent setting near to the iconic Skiddaw mountain range in Cumbria. It features three reception rooms including an oak framed living room, a garden room and five double bedrooms - the master having an en suite and terrace.

The picturesque market town of Keswick is just three miles away with Bassenthwaite lake also a short drive from the property.
