Full description

Tenure: Freehold

This is a large and impressive period house of appeal to those who love history and character. The present owners purchased in 1983 and embarked on an extensive renovation project. Having now come so far (the kitchen and bathrooms would benefit from modernising) they are reluctantly selling as they are ready to downsize.

There are many features worthy of note and of the Grade II* listing - the magnificent plasterwork ceiling and frieze in the drawing room, substantial fireplaces, the impressive staircase, original oak floors, doors, beams and uprights, stone mullion windows and flagged floors. The history has been documented and includes details of previous owners, dates of extensions and the fascinating 'dobbie' stone which was brought to the house in 1636 and hangs from the ancient rafters on the second floor for good luck.

Blease Hall also has space and location on its side. The two main reception rooms are on a grand scale and would be wonderful for entertaining.

Whilst in a rural area, the house has neighbours so isn't isolated and is a very convenient 1.5 miles from Oxenholme Station and 3.7 miles from Kendal ensuring the town's facilities are easily accessible and commuting via the west coast line couldn't be easier.

The one bedroom detached barn is characterful and homely. Over the years it has been occupied by family, visiting friends and is now let out for income.
