Property description

An extremely well presented seven (en-suite) bedroomed mid-terraced Guest House set in a prime trading position to the centre of Town with practical modern 'working' kitchen, attractive dining room with walk in bay window and private owners sitting room.

A prime example of the somewhat over used phrase of 'internal inspection is essential' to appreciate the quality of the accommodation on offer. In the current ownership for more than two decades, this lifestyle business has undergone a rolling program of improvements and upgrading under their ownership. Amble House is presented as a going concern and in 'move in' condition allowing the purchasers to walk in and trade from day one.

The well thought out flexible accommodation currently operates as five guest bedrooms with two en-suite owners bedrooms to the third floor with one or in fact both of these being suitable as further guest bedrooms if required.

Amble House boasts partial UPVC double glazing (conservation area to the front), full gas central heating and briefly consists of vestibule, gracious entrance hall, dining room with walk in bay window, rear owners sitting room, modern fitted kitchen, external utility room, five en-suite letting bedrooms to the first and second floors, linen/store single bedroom and two further en-suite double bedrooms to the third floor.

The Lake District was recently voted a UNESCO World Heritage site and Keswick is within the boundaries of The Lake District National Park and widely regarded as a major tourist destination in the Northern Lakes with visitors returning year on year. The town hosts a variety of independent retailers, hotels, restaurants and public houses, a leisure pool, cinema, two beautiful parks and the highly regarded Theatre by The Lake near the shores of the magnificent Lake Derwentwater set amongst the splendours of the Northern Fells. There are very good transport links via the A66 and M6 motorway and Carlisle Airport with direct flights daily to and from London Southend.
