Thelmlea is an imposing Victorian residence dating back to 1897, constructed for William Wilson of the Faulders Brewing Company in Keswick. It sits in a prominent position on the outskirts of the hugely popular village of Braithwaite and offers panoramic views of a whole host of fells, notably including Barrow, Catbells, Walla Crag, Clough Head, Latrigg and Skiddaw. Built over three floors, the property had been utilised as a Guest House for a number of years but is now in private ownership and will also make an excellent second home or holiday let, as the accommodation lends itself perfectly to the two family market. All in all, a lovely home in a fantastic location.
