WHY CLIFTON? The historic village of Clifton, the last battleground on English soil in 1745, is situated on the northern fringe of the Lake District National Park, just minutes from Penrith and the M6 motorway. The village also boasts a primary school, church and popular Pub. Penrith just a couple of minutes drive to the north, benefits from a wide range of amenities and a station on the West Coast Mainline offering direct rail links to London Euston in just under three hours and acts as a gateway to the wider Lake District, the North Pennines AONB and Yorkshire Dales National Park.  


WHITRIGG HOUSE Whitrigg House is an imposing Grade II listed Georgian residence which has been thoughtfully and tastefully modernised, extended and improved. The impressive frontage gives way to an inner hall, from which the rest of the accommodation is accessed. The large living room to the front of the property opens out to the rear where down a short set of steps the orangery can be found with a bank of bi-fold doors opening out to the garden. The space is currently utilised as a large dining room, however could quite feasibly be a multipurpose living/dining space as required. The kitchen is perfectly formed and is complimented by a useful utility space, also housing the boiler. In addition there is a small study/snug to the front of the property and a large cloakroom W.C. The stairs to the first floor rise from the hallway and lead to three en-suite bedrooms, the largest of which has a generous bathroom and a Juliette balcony taking in views through the trees towards the Fells. The second double bedroom to the front of the property has an en-suite shower as does the third, a large single to the rear. The windows are all double glazed, with the front windows being of the sliding sash variety and the majority also have functioning shutters. The property is presented in excellent order throughout. Externally there is a gravelled forecourt providing parking and a lawned garden to the rear. Through the trees at the bottom of the garden a path leads to a large shed complete with sauna. There is also a right of access across the adjacent field to a gate at the bottom of the garden should it ever be required.  

HARRISON HOUSE Harrison House gives little away from the road with a quite unassuming façade, but is home to an impressive conversion opening out to a fully glazed timber framed gable end at the rear. The property has been fully modernised yet retains a feel of character throughout. The entrance hallway leads to the breakfast kitchen and on to the living room which occupies the lower portion of the glazed gable end. Double doors lead out to the paved patio and on to the generous low maintenance garden. At the opposite end of the property is the first of the bedrooms, with a double height pitched ceiling. There is also a cloakroom W.C. at the bottom of the stairs. The stairs themselves are open to the hall. On the first floor is another double bedroom and a bank of cupboards along the landing. The modern family bathroom has a shower over the bath. The highlight of the first floor though is the main bedroom which has the upper half of the glazed gable end flooding the room with light and taking in elevated views through the trees towards the fells. The property has a double carport to the front providing parking and there is a gated right of way across the adjacent field for access to the rear of the property if required.  

N.B. Whitrigg House has historically traded as a luxury bed and breakfast winning Cumbria Tourism's B&B of the year in 2016. Whilst the property is in no way sold as a going concern it may be possible to negotiate the purchase of the furnishings if this was of interest. The property has not operated as such since March 2019. As a result there are no current trading figures able to be provided. Harrison House is currently operating as a successful holiday letting and furnishings could also be negotiated if required.
