The Property
Firbank is an exceptional property. Sitting in approximately 1 acre of garden and grounds with an additional field of 2.2 acres in front of the house, there is endless potential for this property. The Georgian Grade II Listed house boasts beauty and elegance with its traditional architecture and its picturesque courtyard surrounded by brick barns with slate roofs. There is great potential for development of additional accommodation or equestrian facilities (subject to planning consent).

The property retains many of the original period features, which you'll notice when you first set foot into the house. The grand entrance hall with high ceilings with the original stone floors and plasterwork, setting the tone for the rest of the house. You'll find two formal reception rooms, both with cosy log burners and working original shutters. These two rooms have South facing views over the garden and to the northern Lake District fells beyond. A focal point is the spacious farmhouse with Aga, fitted cupboards, breakfast bar and dining area. Next to the kitchen is a large dining room which leads to the entrance hall from which is access to the cellar complete with sandstone slabs and to the Butler's Pantry fitted out as a downstairs WC. Off the hall is the entrance to the anteroom, which opens out to generously sized living room with vaulted ceiling making it a real peaceful haven or entertaining space with a large log burner. The staircase with original hand rail and bannister lead to the master bedroom with a modern four piece en suite and large dressing room.
