Here's our TOP TEN reasons to love Hordley House:

1. So much potential - now requiring an extensive restoration, Hordley House may be the one for you as it offers immense potential for new custodians to love, cherish and make it their own; it certainly will be a very rewarding project.

2. Character abounds - believed to date back to 1647 and being Grade II Listed, there are many original features including leaded window panes, window seats, oak beamed ceilings and lintels, exposed floorboards, flagged floors, kitchen range, ceiling hooks, panel doors with Suffolk latches, plate racks, stone bench and cast iron fireplace in bedroom 2. The property also features in a book named Photographic Memories, Burton-in-Kendal, Clawthorpe and Dalton, by Kath Hayhurst published by Holme and District Local History Society, with one of the photos dating from 1917 showing the owner's daughter in the walled garden.

3. Provenance - the Wilson family owned several properties in Burton-in-Kendal in the 1800s (many retaining the Wilson name); this included Hordley House, which is understood not to have been seen on the open market in living memory.

4. Embrace the space with well-proportioned accommodation and a gross internal area of c. 1984 sq ft (184.3 sq m).

5. As it stands - off the main central hall there are two good-sized reception rooms. The sitting room has a marble fireplace with decorative tiled slips, a built-in shelved cupboard and glazed door to outside and a dining room, with stone fireplace and built-in cupboards either side. Off the inner hall, is the kitchen with fitted dresser and a pot sink and is open to the pantry. There is also a bathroom, a garden room with brick fireplace and glazed door to outside and a half cellar. A full return, extra wide staircase leads to...

6. ... the first floor landing off which is a store providing access to the roof space, two double bedrooms and an anteroom leading through to double bedroom 3, being open to the apex with a wash basin and WC.

7. A stone and slate Coach House, c. 505 sq ft (46.9 sq m) is attached to the west of the house and currently provides excellent storage. Being double height with mezzanine storage, there are two openings (an arched timber door to the north and sliding timbers doors to the south), a stone flag and cobble floor, power and light. With the relevant consents, there is further potential to develop into a separate dwelling or incorporate all or partially into the house.

8. Outbuildings - stone and slate outhouses include two garden stores, a former privy, and a gardener's WC. The is also a store to the north of the house linking Hordley House and the neighbouring property, Mansion House.

9. Delightful gardens - to the front is a narrow foregarden with low stone wall and ornate wrought iron railings and gates and to the rear of the house, a part cobbled private courtyard leading from the kitchen. The walled garden can be accessed via The Coach House or through a wrought iron gate on the roadside. There is a flagged terrace, mature trees, shrubs and spring bulbs and it would be wonderful to see the return of traditional greenhouses, once positioned on the south facing wall. In all, 0.69 acres (0.28 hectares).

10. A popular Conservation Area village - being highly accessible for road and rail links, close to the Lakes, the Dales and Arnside and Silverdale AONB. For more information on the surrounding area, please see page 5.
