Full description

Tenure: Freehold

The Hermitage Estate is a haven away from the hustle and bustle of life, surrounded by the River Lune there is a peaceful calm about the gardens and grounds. Thomas Gray House, converted from the former groom's cottage, is ideal as a second home with great 'lock up and leave' potential or as a main residence for busy people who want to enjoy the grounds but not spend their precious time weeding and mowing! With a traditional exterior and contemporary interior, the accommodation is spacious with a generous reception room, a high-specification dining kitchen as well as a very useful utility and cloakroom. To the first floor there are three bedrooms and two well-appointed bath/shower rooms with Villeroy & Boch sanitary ware. There is a small private seating terrace immediately in front of the cottage and private parking space. Thomas Gray House is one of six exclusive and individual properties and residents are free to use the extensive grounds (c. 6.75 acres) with riverside walk, beach, ornamental pond, lawns and numerous seating areas around the estate.

Mains electricity, gas and drainage and metered water. Underfloor heating to bath/shower rooms. Carpets, curtains and blinds, curtain poles, light fittings TV and white goods are included in the sale. Other items are available by separate negotiation.

Thomas Gray House is sold on the balance of a 999 year lease which commenced in 2011 and is subject to a service charge of 720 pa. The freehold is owned by Hermitage Estate Management Company Ltd of which the owner of Thomas Gray House is a shareholder.

The Hermitage Estate offers a rare opportunity to live in the heart of the Crook O'Lune. However, tranquility doesn't mean isolation, with the M6 motorway only a five minute drive away and access to rail and air links also within convenient reach (take a taxi to ten station and catch the train direct to Manchester Airport - how easy is that?). Getting there couldn't be simpler. Exit J34 of the M6 and take the A683 signposted Kirkby Lonsdale. As you approach the first village of Caton, turn left signed 'Crook O Lune' and proceed over the bridge, it's the first drive on the left. Bear left and continue up the attractive drive, the property can be found at the end on the right hand side.
