Description

Crossrigg Hall is a magnificent Grade II* listed country house designed by Anthony Salvin in 1864 and significantly re-modelled and extended in 1914 by J.H. Martindale.

The property is impressive in every respect; comfortable with an inherent grandeur. Wonderful reception rooms with garden vistas and a beautiful panelled hall and ante-hall. Original working fireplaces, ornate mouldings and in many rooms, the wonderful original wall coverings provided by Maples & co .

The gardens, paddock and woodland extend to about 17 acres and are beautifully stocked with many specimen trees and shrubs, extensive lawns and a water feature.

The tarmacadam driveway approaches the house through a Listed ashlar stone entrance with an ornate wrought iron gate and railings with wide grass verges planted with daffodils, ornamental and mature trees and leads onwards to the carriage porch. The driveway divides to the stable courtyard and the main driveway formerly continued though the woodland but is now disused although could be restored providing a second entrance to the lane.

Whilst providing a very spacious and comfortable family residence with exceptional guest accommodation the property and outbuildings offer a number of potential alternative uses, some subject to necessary planning consent, others of which have been previously been approved. Further information can be obtained from the Eden District Council planning web site.

Planning permission was granted in 1997 for the property to be converted to a country house hotel and could be registered to provide a delightful and impressive wedding venue.

We are advised planning permission was previously granted for creating two additional dwellings within the extreme end of the east wing.

In addition, separately from the main house, planning permission was previously given for conversion of the range of outbuildings including the original Georgian house and dovecote, to create seven two/three bedroomed holiday cottages, a leisure suite with swimming pool and other communal facilities.

Otherwise, potential uses include Corporate offices or headquarters, Health Care, Nursing Home or Private Hospital, Educational/Institutional use as Management or Training/Conference Centre.

Our clients presently offer weddings, conference, seminars, exhibitions, team building and special private events. More details may be found on their web site: www.crossrigghall.co.uk
