Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Land and extensive stabling all with enormous potential for improvement. 11.76 acres in all.


Swintone House lies to the south of the A66 trans Pennine route at South Stainmore and on the fringe of the North Pennines Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The nearby market towns of Kirby Stephen, Barnard Castle and Penrith are readily accessible, offering a broad range of amenities and national road links at the M6 and A1M are easily reached via the A66. The East and West Coast rail lines at Darlington and Penrith respectively and airports at Durham Tees Valley and Newcastle provide further transport links.

Swinstone House is a charming double fronted house believed to date from the 17th Century and occupies a secluded position in private grounds. The property requires considerable updating but has potential to create a fine home and the conversion of adjoining buildings would allow a significant extension of the living areas if required and subject to all necessary consents.

A passage hallway with access from the front and rear has an adjoining store room and leads to a galley style kitchen with fitted units and via double doors into a well-proportioned living room with fireplace with a wood burning stove. A small lobby to the staircase leads to a further good sitting room with a brick chimney piece. On the first floor a good landing gives access to 3 bedrooms and a bathroom and a further inner landing to 2 store rooms.

The house is approached via a driveway leading to a good hard standing and informal garden area to the rear of the house. There is an attractive enclosed, formal garden to the front of the house and an interesting woodland garden to the west leading down to Mousegill Beck on the southern boundary.

There is a comprehensive range of useful outbuildings. Attached to the west elevation of the house is a double height barn linked to a further range of stone buildings running south and including 4 loose boxes and a feed/tack room. There is a further detached loose house to the west of the house. A further block of outbuildings includes a store, workshop and loose box. There is an additional block of two timber stables and a tack room.

The land lies predominantly to the north and west of the house and includes a small schooling paddock, orchard (which includes some family and pet burial sites) and a series of good grass paddocks and amenity woodland bisected by Mousegill Beck. The whole site extends to 11.76 Acres (4.76 ha) with the grassland extending to 7.60 acres or thereabouts.

Acreage: 11.76 Acres
