With so many people reassessing their lives after Covid-19 related events thoughts of heading to a quieter, safer, more rural location seems a popular option for many, especially for those who may find that working from home, at least some of the time, maybe an option.
A nice property to consider maybe Fisherfield in Portinscale near Keswick in the Lake District.
The agents say "An outstanding traditional Lakeland residence set in exceptional grounds in the heart of the Lake District National Park. Magnificently positioned, elevated towards the rear of the the plot overlooking the surrounding Fells, Cat Bells in particular and Derwentwater, set within 1.5 acres of beautiful private grounds and woodland. The property was built in the 1920’s and offers spacious and flexible accommodation, retaining original period features including staircase and stained glass windows. Nearly every room boasts spectacular views from large windows, whether it be towards the surrounding mature gardens woodland, or through the trees to Derwentwater and the fells beyond. Externally, the property is approached via a private driveway, which culminates in a parking and turning area adjacent to the house, with a detached garage/outbuilding located at the bottom of the driveway."
Portinscale is a delightful village offering all of the Lake District charm and dramatic scenery with Wainwrights northern fells on the doorstep. The village has two marinas and it also has excellent facilities, for example a village hall, café/restaurant. It is a short off road walk into Keswick, and Portinscale is set back from the A66. It is an easy commute to a number of surrounding villages and towns including Keswick, Cockermouth, Grasmere, Penrith and the M6.
2020 has undoubtably caused challanges for us all - but we can't think of many nicer places to look optimistically to the future.
