Appealing Grade II Listed house and three excellent holiday cottages beautifully situated in a peaceful area of the Lake District near Caldbeck. Easily accessible for Keswick and Carlisle. Superb setting. Impressive views. Good income potential. Sale due to illness. 

Situation and description High Greenrigg enjoys a magnificent setting within the Lake District National Park, enjoying wonderful rural and fell views. The setting is accessible and just 3 miles from the active village of Caldbeck. Caldbeck has a superb range of local facilities including numerous societies and clubs and is also a thriving tourist centre. The larger lakeside town of Keswick is just 14 miles. Here there is a wider range of amenities including a diverse range of shops and of cultural interest, the superb Theatre by the Lake. The regional centre of Carlisle is only 17 miles by car and this too has a superb range of social, leisure and retail opportunities. 

The settlement of High Greenrigg is special and includes a Grade II Listed three bedroomed farmhouse with three adjoining holiday cottages. The holiday cottages are in excellent order and include Brae Fell - three ensuite bedrooms, High Pike - two ensuite bedrooms, and Swallows Rest which is a unique one bedroomed conversion. The holiday cottages are beautifully maintained and offer significant further income potential. It is only ill health which is forcing the sale and a wonderful opportunity exists for the incoming buyer to live well in beautiful surroundings. 

The farmhouse has significant character and offers further scope to adapt the accommodation (subject to planning) to meet the requirements of the incoming buyer. The farmhouse and cottages are set in beautiful gardens and grounds which are open to fine views. The holiday cottages are all well appointed and full of original and rustic features, each one particularly individual in layout and accommodation offered. Brae Fell and High Pike also have interconnecting doors as has the farmhouse and Swallows Rest which offer some flexibility in how they may be used.
