Full description

A perfectly outstanding country house dating from the early 19th century and of the handsome, classical proportion of that late Georgian/early Victorian era.

Extended, and comprehensively modernised and redecorated throughout in a style sympathetic to the original building, Gillmoor House offers some superb features - large reception rooms, fine family kitchen with central island, 4 good bedrooms (1 with en-suite facilities and a delightful balcony), additional annex suitable for dependant relatives and teenage children etc, a delightful garden and an excellent range of various work and stock sheds.

The property stands in a lovely position with far reaching views to the south, east and north, well back from the A596 route between Aspatria (3miles) and Wigton (5 miles) the trunk road providing good access for Maryport and the more industrial areas of west Cumbria and beyond and also Carlisle with its M6 and main west coast railway line connections. The local towns cater well for every day needs with a variety of day-to-day facilities - small supermarkets, general shops, sports clubs, churches, primary and secondary schools and railway stations on the Carlisle to west Cumbria line. The house also stands within a short drive of the Solway Coast (now an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty) and the Lake District National Park.
