Deer Close description

Deer Close is set in six acres of secluded woodland on the eastern shores of Lake Coniston, about one mile south of Brantwood. It offers spectacular panoramic views of the lake and mountains beyond. The detached property lies approximately three miles south of Coniston, provides easy access to the lakeshore and includes 150 metres of lake frontage, ideal for enjoying the lake. The bungalow is deceptively spacious and includes three bedrooms, a large lounge with open fire and a kitchen with an Aga. All the rooms have large picture windows to enjoy stunning views across the lake. Outside, the property enjoys a slightly elevated position amidst a large woodland garden which includes a number of unique sculptures and forms part of the Grizedale Forest Sculptures set up in 1977 by the previous owner. The immediate area is famed for its close proximity to the unfortunate end for Donald Campbell’s water speed record attempt which occurred in front of the property and is marked by a buoy. Other famous occupants of the area include Arthur Ransome, who lived nearby whilst writing some of his Swallows and Amazons novels, John Ruskin, the Victorian philanthropist who made his home at Brantwood on the eastern shore and Beatrix Potter who owned and lived in a property nearby.
