One of Eden’s foremost residences, an impressive, five-bedroomed, detached period house together with two self-contained cottages, set in private, walled grounds within peaceful Eden Valley village.

Local Amenities
Edenhall grew as an estate village serving Edenhall Mansion and has remained largely unchanged since the 19th Century. The village has a well-known fishermen’s hotel, the delightful old church of St. Cuthbert’s, and a community cricket club, set in open countryside a little way from the settlement. The nearby village of Langwathby caters well for everyday needs with a church, modern primary school, shop/post office with off-licence, refurbished inn and a café and railway station on the scenic Carlisle-to-Settle line. The nearby market town of Penrith provides varied shops, supermarkets, banks, cinema, secondary schools and sports/leisure amenities. There are many fine walks and sporting facilities in the area, with the Lake District and Pennines also within easy reach.

The Property
One of Eden’s foremost residences, The Old Vicarage is privately located within the centre of the village. It has an imposing appearance, with the majority of the building probably dating from the early 1800’s but with certain parts being much older. It provides generously proportioned, five-bedroomed accommodation, with well-appointed reception rooms. Of particular note is the former vicar’s study with impressive carved fireplace and sound-proofed door! The present owners have undertaken some sensitive refurbishment which creates an attractive dwelling with considerable character.

The house stands in lovely, walled grounds with mature trees and shrubs affording a good degree of privacy. To the side of the property is an Italianate garden on differing levels linked by pools and waterfalls. To the front are formal scented gardens with roses and creepers.

Within the grounds are two small cottage-type properties which could provide a useful income, or accommodation for a dependent relative.

Property of this calibre, in such a location, is exceedingly scarce and rarely introduced to the market.

An inspection is highly recommended.
