Full description

Tenure: Freehold

A unique opportunity to acquire a traditional four/five bedroom farmhouse set in large grounds, with 2.4 acres of land (approx.) and an impressive range of outbuildings, including a substantial sandstone barn, which surely must enjoy one of the best views of the Wasdale valley the area has to offer.

The farmhouse itself offers well-appointed living accommodation perfectly suited for families. In brief, the accommodation comprises entrance hallway, two reception rooms, farmhouse kitchen with access to a large cellar and utility room to the ground floor. There are four bedrooms located on the first floor as well as a further bedroom/playroom which can be accessed from a second staircase from the kitchen. The family bathroom is also on the first floor. Externally, some 2.4 acres of grazing land (approx.) lie to the rear and side of the property, there is off road parking for multiple vehicles, as well as a stable block and adjoining traditional pig sties. The substantial sandstone barn adjacent to the farmhouse completes the picture and really opens the property up to a wide range of prospective purchasers, including those with equestrian interests. Outline planning permission for two dwellings has previously been granted utilising the barn, the cow byre and the old stable.

Properties like Church Stile Farm are rarely available to the open market, with this one offering yet further potential to improve and add value. Presented to the market with the added benefit of no onward chain, viewing is strongly encouraged.
