Property description

Tenure: Freehold

Description: An impressive and substantial seventeenth century, Grade ll* Listed country property, Tearnside Hall is a wonderful and unique example of the architecture typical of the period, mentioned in Pevsner's "Buildings of England" and English Heritage's references to South Cumbria. The property has a date stone of 1686 above the door and a wealth of character period features throughout. Complemented by a substantial attached barn and a detached barn, both of which have potential for residential, business or commercial uses.

There is potential for extending the living accommodation. The two attic rooms, with a staircase from the first floor, provide an opportunity for further bedrooms, studio or workroom. And the large stone and slate attached barn, with communicating doors from the ground and first floors, is ideal to extend into.

In addition the property has cottage style gardens and grounds including lawns, shrubberies, a former orchard and vegetable garden, and a 2 acre paddock.

A rare opportunity to acquire an exceptional period home with scope to update and priced accordingly.
