Property Description

Full description

Town Head House is an historic country estate enjoying a most dramatic setting to the south eastern shore of Lake Windermere within the Lake District National Park. The house offers substantial and flexible accommodation with useful estate income currently generated from the additional residential properties both on an Assured Shorthold Tenancy basis and from the 4* rated holiday let.

The Estate is bounded at its southern edge by Fell Foot Park, owned by the National Trust, providing gardens and boating facilities. Opposite the Estate and to the western shore of the Lake is the well renowned Lakeside Hotel together with the terminus for the Lakeside and Haverthwaite Steam Railway.

The estate is convenient for all the facilities that the Lake District National Park has to offer with hill walking, shooting and fishing and with Cartmel Race Course being 8 miles away.

Junction 36 of the M6 Motorway is 18 miles from Town Head and the West Coast Main Line Railway Station with direct trains to London in 2 hours 40 minutes is 18 miles away.

Believed to date to the 1400's and remaining in the the same family since 1804 when the two Georgian wings were added to the main house, Town Head was originally purchased as a hunting lodge and each generation has left its own mark on the property with the current owners introducing the income of holiday letting from Town Head Barn Cottage.

The house and grounds offer a delightful country estate with the pleasant formal gardens being a lovely complement and the parkland and woodland having impressive frontage to England's longest lake where there is a traditional stone and slate wet dock boat house with day room above. The house itself is Grade II listed and is of architectural and historical importance and is predominately Georgian with parts of the original building being Elizabethan. Of an impressive traditional Country House style, with fabulous proportions and splendid features including sash windows, window shutters and cornicing, the principal reception rooms and bedrooms are south west facing and enjoy the enviable and stunning views.

The house is approached via electric gates over a cattle grid with the tarmacadam driveway sweeping through the parkland and leading either to the front of the house or to the barns and outbuildings with an additional driveway providing secondary access to the north east of the main house and leading to Town Head Barn Cottage for the guests of the holiday let.
