Property Description

Full description

Stables Cottage is an exceptional four bedroom single storey residence set within well proportioned beautiful mature landscaped gardens, with a paddock of around two acres and an outlook southwards over open countryside. It is located at the heart of Skirwith, an attractive and peaceful Eden Valley village on the edge of the majestic landscapes of the eastern fellside, with access to a wide range of outdoor activities.

This fine property is part of a superior development of the traditional sandstone former farm buildings - formerly Home Farm - which created three dwellings with, at the rear, an impressive formal garden courtyard.

The large Entrance Hall is at the centre of the living space, with a spacious dining kitchen leading into a fitted utility room and the stairs up to the only first floor room above, currently used as a study. The formal sitting room extends to more than 22' (6.7m), with two feature arched windows which give a fabulous view over the garden and beyond, with a feature stone fireplace housing a woodburning stove; it also has double doors to the outside patio area. The dining room is accessed from both the kitchen and the entrance hall and the whole of this area provides a versatile suite of entertaining rooms.

There are four double bedrooms, each with ensuite facilities and with fitted wardrobes, arranged along the light and airy rear hallway, which has views of the courtyard garden.

Outside, the property is approached by the private driveway serving Home Courtyard and on the left there is a double garage which serves the property, together with a block paved parking area for visitors. Entering the garden through the gate, a pathway leads around the property to the glorious garden with seating areas, curving lawns and mature trees and shrubs, overlooking the paddock beyond which belongs to the property. The portion of the garden courtyard which is coextensive with the property provides another tranquil and very pretty sitting out area.


Services: mains water, drainage and electricity. Oil fired central heating - underfloor throughout apart from passageways. Calor gas to kitchen hob.

Council Tax: Band E.

Directions: from Penrith take the A686 towards Alston, passing through Langwathby and up the hill. Take the right turn for Skirwith and as you enter the village, at the crossroads, turn right and after a short distance you will see the entrance to Home Courtyard on your right.
