“The beauty of the Lake House is that it could be either a superb investment, a family home, or first-class holiday accommodation that generates income for you while you are not using it yourself,” said Toby Cockcroft, director of Croft Residential, which is marketing the property.
“Because Raithwaite has been successfully running the property as luxury visitor accommodation since 2013, prospective owners who wish to let the house for all or part of the year can simply have the headache of sorting that out taken away and have it all handled by the hotel operator that runs the estate, with an almost guaranteed flow of guests – and income.”
The property has six bedrooms, three reception rooms and four bathrooms. Outside, there are gardens, terraces and a small paddock, along with parking for several cars.
“We are anticipating huge amounts of interest in this property,” said Mr Cockcroft. “As well as being an exceptionally well presented and luxurious house with the capability to generate its own income, it is also in one of the most sought-after locations in the north. Sandsend is incredibly popular with buyers.”
