Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Manchester House is a fantastic large family home, in the desirable village of Warcop in the North Pennines, an area of outstanding natural beauty, mid way between Appleby and Brough.

There is a good community with village hall, a well respected Church Of England primary school and day nursery. Secondary schools are in the nearby market towns of Appleby In Westmorland, under 6 miles, where there is a wide range of shops, pubs, medical and sporting facilities and Kirkby Stephen, less than 8 miles. The location offers great travel links via road to the A66 & M6 and mainline rail via the Settle- Carlisle line, the nearest station being at Appleby.

Believed to date from the 1700's, the property has been a public house (and still retains the decorative metal grilles on the windows where the horses were tied), as well as a village shop. The house has been a much loved family home for over 40 years and is now ready for a good update to really take advantage of the generous room sizes and natural light afforded to the property.

On the ground floor, there is a good sized kitchen which could be easily knocked through into the adjoining dining room to create a fabulous family kitchen dining room. There is a large living room with stove, as well as a small WC off the entrance hall. The wide staircase leads up to 3 good sized double bedrooms, all facing South, as well as a house bathroom and a study/4th bedroom. With re-configuration, it would be possible to create additional bathroom facilities and 4 bedrooms.

The property benefits from double glazing and has oil fired central heating.

To the front of the house is a wide cobbled & concrete path for borders or parking. On the other side of the shared lane, there is a single garage with parking to the front as well as a pretty cottage garden with patio, fruit trees and bushes and opportunity to create a vegetable garden. There is a stone built workshop with electric, water and light which was the former wash house. At the bottom of the garden is a former art studio with electric & light as well as an old shed.

Manchester House is an exciting project for someone looking to put their own stamp on great home.
