Foxhill enjoys an exquisite elevated west-facing position creating stunning panoramic views of Helvellyn and the Cumbrian Mountains.


Foxhill is a beautifully converted Lakes Longhouse in the picturesque Northern Lake District National Park, converted out of a traditional Cumbrian granite building creating a beautiful family home. The property has character and charm expected from a conversion with 17th century origins.

The ground floor accommodation offers exceptional family reception rooms and a wonderful open plan kitchen dining area. The kitchen is fitted with traditional handcrafted wooden base units around an Aga and central island unit with granite work surface. From the kitchen the other reception rooms can all be accessed, with the charming character living room beyond the kitchen having an incredible feature fireplace that dominates the room and is a beautiful focal point. The conservatory and snug/office both enjoy the best of the unspoilt panoramic views to the front of Foxhill, with planning permission granted to develop the courtyard between the two if desired by the purchaser.

The first floor at Foxhill offers excellent family bedrooms, with a spacious master bedroom suite that has a large sitting area with feature fireplace, private balcony, en suite and dressing room. The 2nd bedroom also has the benefit of en-suite bathroom. The further bedrooms all enjoy the fantastic view out over the private lake to the hills and across to Helvellyn. These bedrooms are all supported by two family bathrooms on the first floor.

The property is accessed down a partly shared then private driveway which leads to the rear parking area past the detached double garage. The property is central to the gardens that have been lovingly landscaped creating beautiful formal gardens to all sides of the property. The rear garden has a feature water course and ponds that eventually feed into the lake below the front paddock. The land is partially planted with woodland trees that with time will improve the privacy enjoyed at Foxhill. The main paddocks are both to the front of the property between the gardens and the private lake with the smaller paddocks to the rear and side.

To the North of Ullswater Lake in the sought after Lake District National Park, located between Penrith and Keswick the property occupies a rural, yet convenient location within easy access to Penrith, where local amenities and professional services can all be located. For the commuter, the A66 and M6 provide links with the major commercial centres of the region, with Penrith train station providing excellent links to Manchester and Carlisle along the new High Speed West Coast mainline railway and London in just over 3 hours.
