Full description

Tenure: Freehold

The Raise is a Grade II listed four bedroomed farmhouse, with the addition of an oak frame extension (Border oak) and barn, architecturally designed and converted to an outstanding standard. It also has an attached studio providing a work from home element, an unconverted barn with planning permission for holiday lets, stabling and paddocks; all set against a stunning, 360 degree, panoramic back drop of the Northern and Western Lake District fells.

Originally a traditional farm house with attached barn, The Raise has undergone an extensive and tasteful renovation, creating a unique luxury family home. A stunning characterful open plan lounge and formal dining area occupy the first floor of the barn section with elevated views to the fells. A contemporary country style dining kitchen with an exceptional range of high quality fittings occupies the ground floor.

From the first floor of the barn there is internal access to the oak frame extension with its beautiful master suite; a large light and airy double bedroom with four piece bathroom. Three further double bedrooms (one with en-suite) and shower room complete this floor.

To the ground floor of the farmhouse there are four rooms which require sympathetic modernisation, these offer incredible scope and flexibility with the potential to create more informal ‘snug’ or play rooms, formal living room and reception rooms or study areas.
Externally there is a large stone built barn which is unconverted and has planning permission for conversion to holiday lets, a detached two bay stable and an attached studio, lawned gardens and paddocks extending to approximately three acres, plus the possibility to rent further paddocks if required.

The Raise enjoys an elevated position on the edge of the small rural village of Ullock, approximately five miles south of the attractive Georgian market town of Cockermouth, which offers a wide range of amenities and facilities including an excellent secondary school, variety of independent shops, cafes, bars and restaurants, leisure centre and Kirkgate Arts centre. The highly rated Paddle Academy Primary School is located approximately a mile from the village. Close to the western boundary of the Lake District National Park, providing the opportunity to enjoy the many outstanding locations which the National Park has to offer including the Buttermere and Loweswater valleys which are easily within driving or cycling distance and offer fantastic hill walking. The location also provides easy access by road to the main employment areas of West Cumbria, including Sellafield.
