Description: 'You can hardly hear a pin drop as you stand within the grounds of Hampsfield House'.

This superb country residence is situated in a beautiful tranquil setting with sylvan surrounds and commands superb views over the Valley towards the Lakeland Fells on the skyline. The fine original mansion was built in the 1880's for Sir John Hibbert, Financial Secretary to Gladstone's cabinet and exudes an air of quality, one which was sympathetically retained by the highly regarded developer 'Robert Hughes Ltd' when the property was divided into luxury apartments in 2003/04. Equipped to exceptional standards with high quality fixtures and fittings throughout, these individual, desirable residences offer seclusion and tranquility, coupled with good accessibility to local amenities, the delights of the Lake District National Park and to the main transport networks (M6 - 12 miles, Railway station at Grange 1½ miles).

Detached from the main house, The Stables and adjacent Coach House were created from the ancillary buildings, each of equally substantial high quality construction dated 1884. Transformed by the skilled imagination of Kendal architects 'Ted Fletcher', into a quite unique, spacious, light and airy home, 'The Stables' is quite simply 'stunning'. Visitors to this restful home relax into the landscape and become absorbed by the view over park-like countryside to the Lakeland Fells in the far distance - enchanting!

If you seek a combination of style, convenience and seclusion, yet at the same time want a property which is very accessible, you may need to look no further.
