Property Description

Full description

Greenbank is located on the edge of Brough Sowerby village, occupying an elevated corner site, with lovely rural views southwards across the gardens to the Howgill fells. It is just over 3 miles to Kirkby Stephen, 23 miles from Penrith and just over 9 miles from Appleby. Brough Sowerby is a short distance from the A66 which give good access east-west and links with the A1 at Scotch Corner and the M6 at Junction 40.

With the rear elevation facing due south, it sits within generously proportioned grounds with mature gardens on all sides and a small paddock on the other side of the adjacent lane.

This property comprises the original house and adjoining barn, the latter having been converted to residential space which has been used by the current owners as an annexe for elderly parents and latterly as holiday accommodation, but all of which combine to create a substantial five bedroom house. It has many period and traditional features which create a family home with atmosphere.

The original house has a dining kitchen with pantry, conservatory, open plan front-to-back sitting/living room, dining room, three bedrooms and a spacious bathroom.

The barn conversion has reversed accommodation with two bedrooms and a bathroom on the ground floor and a spacious full-height sitting room and dining kitchen upstairs.

There is a large store room on the ground floor accessed from outside. The present owners ran a business from the property and there is substantial greenhousing on part of the grounds, which would be ideal for someone who wishes to undertake serious gardening or a horticultural business. The paddock is terraced and presently houses a polytunnel for similar uses.
