Orrest Head House is a stunning mix of traditional grade 11 listed Cumbrian cottage meets Boutique pad! Built before Windermere village was created by the railway, the property dates back to 1672. Now owned by a designer the property has been redeveloped with style and flair.
On the ground floor the house features a modern kitchen, equipped with everything you'd need for the grandest of parties, including: 2 large fridge-freezers and a wine cooler for all that champagne. Next to the kitchen there's a TV snug, where a smaller group can get away from the crowd. The majestic dining room seats 18 around a square table. The lounge is a huge space with some of the longest Chesterfied sofas you'll have ever seen enough space to seat 16. Perhaps the most unique feature of this house is Josiah Brown's - your very own bar. Perfect for a celebration party. There are also patio doors which open onto a sun terrace. Finally there's a wellie room with a separate entrance, which has enough space for all your wet gear. The room also houses the washing machine, dryer and boilers.
Upstairs there are 5 large bedrooms, each individually decorated with contemporary wall-coverings and colours all with ensuite shower rooms. Bedroom 1 is a super-king-size with a Victorian bath (in the ensuite) over looking the rear garden. Bedrooms 2 and 3 are king-size and both have baths overlooking the garden in the bedroom. Bedrooms 3 and 4 are both triple with single beds that can be pushed together.
Outside there are over 2 acres of private grounds, (shared with Orrest Head Cottage), a large patio with furniture and barbecue and parking for at least 10 cars.
Orrest Head House is one of the oldest properties in Windermere dating back to 1672. Recently renovated the house is now a boutique holiday cottage with all the panache such a description entails. The house sleeps 12 but can be increased to 17 when combined with Orrest Cottage (a smaller house in the grounds).
