Full description

Tenure: Leasehold

This handsome Grade II listed detached property which dates back to 1732 is set in an enviable location between the stunning coastline and the Western Fells of the Lake District and sympathetically blends original features with the needs of the modern family. Lovingly restored over time by the owners, the property makes a fabulous home with the added benefit of an adjoining one bedroom holiday cottage and extensive grounds of over 1.5 acres. There has been just one change of ownership since 1949, so a property of this calibre in the St Bees area truly is a rare find.

Howman is situated within the parish of St Bees and is located approximately one mile from the historic village which lies at the start of Wainright's Coast to Coast footpath. St Bees offers a wealth of local amenities and is a popular tourist destination with a sandy beach, towering cliffs of St Bees head, promenade, children's play area and beach shop/café. In addition there is a train station on the Cumbrian Coast Line, a Norman Priory, church, village shop, numerous hotels, pubs and restaurants, village school and even a golf course. From the property itself, a walk along Primrose lonning leads down towards the sea shore and the unspoilt scenery of the Western Lake District is just a few miles away.

The spacious accommodation includes entrance porch, living room, dining room, family room, breakfasting kitchen with 'Aims' Aga, back kitchen, utility room, five bedrooms, family bathroom & separate WC. The adjoining barn conversion includes a hallway, kitchen/breakfast room, first floor living room with mezzanine level, bedroom and bathroom.

Howman enjoys a rural position with views over fields to every side. There are formal gardens to the front and side of the property and a driveway leads through mature trees to a parking area at one side, then round to an integral garage at the rear. Here you will find a useful kitchen garden with greenhouse. In addition the property includes a paddock at the rear planted with native woodland trees to boundaries and a separate field located across the lane, opposite the house which could be suitable for a pony. All in all the grounds extend to just over 1.5 acres
