Greenside House, built circa 1840, is a beautifully restored three storey Grade II listed Georgian Townhouse located within the town's conservation area. This elegant period property has classic features of the era with slate and exposed timber floors, oak beams and an impressive period staircase. There are some wonderful views from the top floor of the house to the northwestern fells, Skiddaw, Blencathra and even a glimpse of Derwentwater.
Keswick town centre is only a two minute stroll away offering a wealth of excellent shops, restaurants, pubs, a cinema, and the award-winning Theatre by the Lake with its year round live performances. Cruises and boat hire can be enjoyed on Derwentwater, whilst the surrounding mountains such as Skiddaw and Latrigg provide some of the finest walks in Lakeland, and low level walks can still be enjoyed for the less active - all this without needing to use the car.
