Inside Dome House, the luxury mansion featured on Grand Designs

A towering property with views over Windermere is back on the market but would cost a potential buyer millions.

The renovation of Dome House in Bowness into a family home and luxury apartments was caught on Channel 4 cameras for the hit show.

And you can smash the unique house right now… if you stick to the £3,500,000 price tag.

Architect Robert Gaukroger built the unusual structure, designed to almost disappear into the hillside overlooking Windermere.

It was described by presenter Kevin McCloud as “awesome” and “awesome”.

The project was over budget and the property sat unfinished until Yvonne Malley, who said she first saw the unfinished project on Grand Designs, stepped in.

His daughter-in-law Joyce McKenna, a Grand Designs fan who said she remembered watching the show when the Dome House appeared, and her husband Phil, said it had taken a lot of work to to upgrade the house, but it was an opportunity she just couldn’t miss.

The property has functioned as a vacation rental and was named the most romantic getaway by an industry magazine last year.

Dome House received the prestigious distinction of a jury of experts for Luxury BnB Magazine.

It also contains a swimming pool, an outdoor picnic area with a fireplace and a fully functional kitchen in the private apartment.

This means that it has two fully equipped kitchens, seven bedrooms and six bathrooms, as well as a large family room.

The ‘Dome Room’, a breathtaking open-plan living space with warm wooden flooring, can accommodate around 15 people for socializing.

Fragrant roses inhabit a sheltered seating area at the front of Dome House, a perfect place to pause and chat.

The garden is built into the slope of Brant Fell and its rock face exposed to the rear, while hidden among the canopy garden swings and terraces, adorned with twinkling garlands, promote a relaxing space.
