5 bedroom house for sale
50 Boroughgate, Appleby-in-Westmorland, Cumbria
A particularly fine Grade II listed Georgian townhouse, carefully and tastefully restored to provide delightful accommodation full of character & style,and including 3 reception rooms, fine upper floor drawing room, 5 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms, together with the loveliest loggia and walled rear garden outside situated in the handsome tree lined high-street just below Appleby Castle.
Appleby, the former County Town of Westmorland, stands on a bend of the River Eden. The town provides an excellent range of day-to-day facilities including primary and secondary schools, varied shops, hotels, churches, public houses, swimming pool, and station on the scenic Settle to Carlisle Railway. Boroughgate, the attractive, tree-lined main street, is dominated at its head by the imposing Appleby Castle with its Norman keep, and at its foot by the handsome Parish Church of St. Lawrence, last resting place of Lady Anne Clifford. The A66 trans-Pennine trunk road, which now bypasses the town, gives good access to Penrith/M6 [approximately 14 miles to the north-west] and the A1 at Scotch Corner. The M6 is accessible, via Orton Scar, at Junction 38 [Tebay].
The house certainly dates from the mid 18th Century although there are indications of an earlier dwelling behind the front, classical Georgian ground and first floor rooms. The vendors have undertaken a comprehensive and yet sympathetic programme of improvement since their purchase in 1999 which has resulted in one of the finest houses of its type in the area. In particular, the upper floor drawing room has been created from two former bedrooms and the delightful loggia converted from a former sun lounge. The kitchen and bath/shower rooms have been completely refurbished and the whole house redecorated in a style befitting a lovely home of this period. Finally, the south west facing garden has been extensively landscaped and restocked to create a truly delightful aspect to this fine property.
