Property Description

Full description

An exceptional Victorian five bedroom residence with grand rooms and extensive gardens, on an elevated plot with views of the north Lakeland fells, Lamley House is located in the desirable Penrith New Streets conservation area, with excellent amenities and transport links a short distance away.

The property has a large cellar, loft and rear extension, all with excellent further development potential.

The house is approached by a tree lined driveway, leading to a generous parking area and double garage with automatic doors. The front entrance leads into the grand entrance hall with striking stained glass windows and sweeping stairwell. To the rear of the hall is a cloakroom and ground floor shower room.

Off the entrance hall are two reception rooms, which presently serve as a formal dining room and sitting room. Both rooms are of stately proportions, with high ceilings, large bay windows and open fireplaces, with original marble surround in the sitting room.

At the heart of the ground floor is the spacious kitchen, with bespoke fitted cabinetry, inbuilt appliances, breakfast bar and Amtico flooring. The kitchen opens into a snug room, with ornate gas fire and door out onto the side patio area. The ground floor is completed by a modern day extension to the rear, which houses a large utility room and cloakroom, with access to the garages and garden.

Off the generous first floor landing are five bedrooms, with one currently serving as a study. The two spacious front bedrooms have decorative fireplaces and bay windows, with excellent views of the town and Lakeland fells. The large five piece family bathroom has fitted vanity units, Karndean flooring and walk-in power shower.

The residence has a large cellar, a partially boarded loft and a large workshop at the rear of the garages. The loft and cellar could be converted into additional rooms and the garage extension is large enough to be converted into a multi-generational annex, subject to necessary planning consents.

The property and gardens have retained their sophisticated Victorian character, with high ceilings and period features found in most of the rooms. Modern day adaptations have been done sympathetically and to a very high standard, with a new roof, alarm system and central heating making it a secure and comfortable family home

Lamley House stands on an exceptional plot, encompassed by superb Victorian gardens. On south and west sides of the property are formal lawn gardens with established borders and box hedging. A raised terrace overlooks the formal garden, with wisteria arbor seating area with a sunken pond. The large raised walled garden has a patio seating area, pond and summerhouse, with hedge archways leading to hidden gardens, including a large kitchen garden with raised beds, herb garden, fruit cages and greenhouse.

All in all this is a superb town property the like of which rarely comes to the market. The centre of Penrith town is a short walk away, with primary and secondary schools, shops and further amenities. Penrith is located on the edge of the Lake District National Park, with Ullswater just six miles away. The A66, A6 and M6 bypass the town, offering excellent transport links, with the West Coast Main Line offering direct rail travel to London, Glasgow and Edinburgh. London is just three hours away by train and Manchester, Newcastle and Glasgow airports are within two hours drive.
