Monkey Puzzle is a prestigious Grade II listed home, believed to date back to the 1700's, in the hamlet of Outhgill in the Mallerstang Valley. In August 2016 the area became part of the extended Yorkshire Dales National Park, giving it protected status.

Outhgill is a small community hamlet just 4 miles from the market town of Kirkby Stephen. The town has good communication links, with easy access to the M6 in the West and the A66 link road to the A1. Kendal, Lancaster, the Lake District & the Yorkshire Dales are all easily accessible. The scenic Settle to Carlisle Railway offers national connections.

The house was significantly renovated in 2000 with new roof, rewiring, oil fired heating & plumbing as well as bathrooms & kitchen. It does however, still retain all the character and charm one would hope for in a house of this age.

The main house has two good reception rooms, one with flagged floors and a notable range fireplace, as well as a dining kitchen with Rayburn, a traditional pantry and a small conservatory. The former cart house could be a further snug/sitting room if required. Upstairs, there are three good double bedrooms to the front and a single bedroom as well as a house bathroom and shower room.

The East wing could easily be converted to form independent accommodation although is currently used as office & library space. There is a shower room, utility room, library & store on the ground floor and two good rooms on the first floor which could make a sitting room & kitchen. There is an independent entrance from the lane to the front.

The West wing is currently an artist's studio and gallery, but, again, could be used for independent accommodation, taking the shower room and cart house from the main house.

Outside, to the front of the house is an attractive garden with lawn and flags, mature borders, shrubs and trees, including a Yew tree & wisteria. To the side is private gated parking for two vehicles.

The rear garden has areas of flagged patio, lawn, borders and trees. There is a good sized workshop with attached large greenhouse and a dry stone built store in two sections.

Monkey Puzzle offers a rare opportunity to own a beautiful country home in a quiet hamlet, with opportunity to create independent accommodation if required or to use as the current owners do, for two independent work from home areas.
