3 bedroom detached house for sale

Gamblesby, Penrith, Cumbria


Property Description

Full description

Tenure: Freehold

A beautifully refurbished former public house which we understand dates back to 1741.
Alfred Wainwright retells of staying in the Red Lion Inn in his book: A Pennine Journey: The Story of a Long Walk in 1938. The property underwent major refurbishment by the current owners in 2005.
The property has retained many original features and briefly comprises lounge with feature fireplace, dining room, fitted kitchen, rear hall, utility room, cloakroom/WC and rear entrance lobby/scullery. To the first floor there are three generous bedrooms, en-suite to Master, and further bedroom with connecting solid oak door to family bathroom.
The property benefits from oil fired central heating, partial double glazing, driveway, garden and rear courtyard with generous sandstone built outhouse. Early inspection is recommended to fully appreciate the character, standard and scale of accommodation this property offers.
