Full description

Tenure: Freehold

A superb opportunity to obtain a unique period home with additional properties which offer versatile and exciting opportunities. A large garden of approximately one third of an acre surround the properties. To the front, far reaching views across the local fells and towards the mountains. To the rear, stunning views of the countryside. The main house has two good sized reception rooms, a kitchen, a shower, WC and a pantry/utility which leads to a sun room on the ground floor.

On the first floor there are three generous sized bedrooms and a good sized family bathroom. The windows are of a period style with fabulous wood panel surrounds on most with lovely views from most vantage points.

The main house contains a wealth of original features including a lovely hallway with flagstones leading to the stairs with balustrade and beautiful curved mahogany hand rail together with a feature window located on the half landing.

The high ceilings and spacious accommodation makes this a lovely property with scope for updating by the next owners. Moreover two further properties, that lie within the extensive garden boundaries are included in the sale.

To the rear of the main house is a quaint and delightful one bedroom (two roomed) cottage with one room on the ground floor and one room on the first floor. Albeit a little project, this would make a superb office/study which is located just outside the back door from the main house.

In addition to the cottage there is a fabulous two storey barn/garage that has been completely rebuilt and renovated to a very high standard. Having water and electricity, you can see the potential of it being used for a residential purpose (subject to planning).

On the ground floor of this well constructed barn are two large double timber doors to the front and there is another on the first floor. There is also a WC located on the ground floor.

It is easy to see with a little imagination how this could be used for alternative purposes. Early viewing is highly recommended to fully appreciate the potential of the properties on offer.

Please note: - A planning application is currently in process for the barn.
