Full description

Tenure: Freehold

High Barn House was originally a Lakeland barn, probably dating from the 18th century although there may have been much earlier buildings on the site. It is located in open countryside on rising ground which gives magnificent views of nearby Latterbarrow and Irton Pike, and the more distant peaks of Yewbarrow, Kirk Fell and the imposing Great Gable. A breathtaking prospect.

In more recent years, the present owners have sensitively developed High Barn House to create an imaginative contemporary interior design which provides stylish and unusual five bedroomed (four en suite) accommodation with generously proportioned living space. A ground floor bedroom with separate external access and en suite wet room offers the potential to be used as an independent self contained unit and is suitable for disabled use.

High Barn House, along with the original farmhouse and other converted farm buildings forms part of a courtyard development. The property has a sizeable rear garden which enjoys the afternoon and evening sunshine. Also included is a one acre paddock.

Note: Occupancy of the property is restricted to a person/persons employed/about to be employed/last employed in Cumbria or a person/persons who have had their principal residence in Cumbria for the last 3 years.

This is a wonderful opportunity to acquire a superb family residence in a lovely part of the Lake District National Park. An inspection is recommended.

The property is located in a tranquil, sought-after location within the National Park valley of Wasdale. Santon Bridge is a scattered Lakeland community, loosely centred around the Bridge Inn beside the River Irt which flows out of Wastwater, approx. 2� miles off the A595 at Holmrook.

Mains electricity and water (metered); shared septic tank for drainage; oil fired heating; double glazing throughout; telephone installed; satellite dish and freeview aerial.

The valley of Wasdale stretches for over 7 miles from Wasdale Head down to the hamlet of Santon Bridge, and is home to England's highest mountain, Scafell Pike, and deepest lake, Wastwater. It is a fascinating valley with small fields and meadows interspersed with ancient oak woodlands, leading up to Wastwater where the scenery changes dramatically to the lake surrounded by impressive mountains. Surprisingly, much of the valley bottom is only about 50m above sea level which, combined with high levels of sunshine, creates a very desirable micro-climate. Evidence supporting this is to be found in St Mary's Churchyard at Gosforth where the most northerly cork tree in Europe was planted in 1833 and still flourishes.

Santon Bridge comprises of a scatter of houses, tea room and gift shop, and a village hall. By the river is the well known Bridge Inn, the home of the World's Biggest Liar Competition. Nearby Gosforth (3 miles) has shops, a library, excellent nurs...
