Property Description

Full description

An exceptional country house located in the peaceful Eden Valley village of Blencarn at the foot of the dramatic Pennine Fells. Sycamore House is a beautifully presented character property with five bedrooms, three reception rooms and an exceptional open plan dining kitchen. The property has extensive gardens, outbuildings and magnificent fell views.

Sycamore House was originally a farmhouse, with the present building thought to date back to the late 19th Century. The property has been adapted and modernised and is now an impressive family home, retaining charming period features throughout. Many of the rooms have excellent Pennine views with the front rooms having views across the Eden Valley to the North Lakeland fells.

On the ground floor an entrance porch leads into a spacious sitting room with inviting wood burning stove with sandstone surround. There are two further reception rooms, one presently serving as a study and the other a charming dining room with oak flooring, exposed beams and wall timbers.

A recent conversion has created an extraordinary vaulted dining kitchen within the attached former outbuilding. The kitchen area has solid wood fitted cabinets with oak and granite worktops, in built appliances and Rangemaster range cooker. This sizeable room is an ideal space for entertaining with wood burning stove in the dining area and french doors opening the room out into a spacious conservatory and onto the garden patio. The ground floor is completed by the utility room and cloakroom off the kitchen area.

To the first floor are three good sized bedrooms with two further characterful bedrooms off the second floor landing. There is a shower room and a family bathroom on the first floor with fitted cabinets and bath with shower attachment.

In the garden
Sycamore House has a delightful south-west facing rear garden with sizeable lawn, mature flower borders and trees and wildlife pond.  There is a large kitchen garden area, two garden sheds and a patio seating area to sit and enjoy the garden and the Lakeland fell views beyond.  The house is approached from the village green via a gravelled drive and parking area which leads to a garage with separate stone workshop, adjoining the garage and house utility area. These attached outbuildings offer further potential for further development if desired, subject to the necessary planning consents.

SycamoreHouse is located at the heart of the Pennine village of Blencarn, set against the dramatic backdrop of Cross Fell. This rural Eden Valley village offers an idyllic lifestyle with fell walks on the doorstep and Blencarn Lake for fishing and waterside picnics and, for the more adventurous, Eden Soaring gliding club is close by. There is a good choice of schools and pubs in the nearby villages, with the market towns of Penrith and Appleby a short drive away with excellent secondary schools and national road and rail links.
