Property Description

Full description

With a date stone showing 1712, the property was originally a farmhouse and reputedly one of the first six properties in the village. The house is approached via a cottage gate, leading through the front gravelled garden with seating area.

The entrance hall leads into the spacious, almost square dining kitchen, with bespoke solid wood fitted cabinetry and under counter appliances. The original inglenook stove recess remains and there are exposed timbers.

In turn, the kitchen accesses the conservatory, with a stable door into the barn and French doors onto the patio area, an ideal place for alfresco dining. There is the possibility to develop this space further by the creation of a larger garden room, subject to the necessary planning and listed building consents. The barn itself extends to around 250 ft2 and offers potential for further development for a variety of uses. Also leading from the kitchen is a good sized utility room.

To the front of the property are two spacious reception rooms, both with beautiful period features, including exposed beams and stonework and some stunning original floorboards, in addition to low ceilings and cosy fireplaces. The present sitting room has an open fire with handmade red brick surround and the second reception room has a woodburning stove with stone mantle set within a painted stone feature wall.

To the rear of the property is a large enclosed lawned garden, with established flower borders and various fruit trees, which bring magnificent blossom in the springtime.  There is ample space for a garden shed or even a timber garden studio room, should it be desired.

To the front there is a hard landscaped garden area with ornamental topiary and border planting, creating a south facing entertaining space. There is also off road space to the front of the barn, with potential for a larger parking area, if needed, which could be created by adapting the front garden.

The property is situated in the heart of Tirril village, with a number of amenities, including the Queens Head Inn, with village store, a garage and village hall.

The village has a friendly and active community and there is a primary school just outside the village. Ullswater and the lakeside village of Pooley Bridge are only a few miles away, offering a wealth of outdoor pursuits and walks.

The market town of Penrith is a short drive, with excellent amenities and national transport links via the M6 and West Coast Main Line.
