7 bedroom detached house for sale
New House , Parkin Hill, Appleby, Cumbria
A classic early 19th century detached house of the Regency style,
providing well proportioned and potentially gracious accommodation
including 3 reception rooms, up to 7 bedrooms, large integral workshop and gardens, all in need of some general modernisation and refurbishment and occupying a fine, elevated position just over half a mile from the centre of this historic county town.
Appleby provides an excellent range of day-to-day facilities including primary and secondary schools, shops and small supermarkets, hotels, public houses, sports clubs including refurbished swimming pool and also a railway station on the scenic Settle to Carlisle line. The attractive tree-lined high street provides some handsome buildings including the Parish Church of St. Lawrence at its foot and the impressive Appleby Castle at its head.
The A66 by-passes the town and gives good access to Penrith and the M6 to the north-west and to Scotch Corner/A1 to the south-east. The M6 can also be accessed at Junction 38 (Tebay).
The house dates from circa 1820 with features typical of that period such as the classic overhanging roof, curved staircase with arched half landing window, a handsome arched wall recess in the dining room and elegantly portioned rooms. It is understood that the building is listed as being of architectural/historical interest (Grade II).
General modernisation is required throughout but there is considerable scope not only to refurbish the existing accommodation but also, perhaps, to incorporate the ground floor workshop in the two storey wing perhaps into a superb dining/kitchen. The appropriate consents would be required.
