Old Park is a spacious, detached house with an integrated yet independent apartment in a glorious setting in the area known as South Stainmore in the Upper Eden Valley.
It is around 3 & 5 miles from the Market Towns of Brough and Kirkby Stephen respectively. There are good schools, shops, restaurants and pubs as well as medical facilities to be found in both towns. There are excellent transport links via the A66 to the Lake District in the West and the North East, with the M6 within a half hour drive. The surrounding countryside is in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and there are regularly red squirrels, hares and the occasional deer to the gardens.
The house is believed to date back to the 1700's, with the adjoining barn having been integrated in the past 20 years. It offers spacious accommodation with the benefit of an independent flat, perfect for a dependent relative or as an income source through long term or holiday letting, subject to planning permission. The current owner has installed a new Bio Mass boiler and hopper, for a more economical, environmentally friendly method of heating. The property is double glazed throughout.
On the ground floor, there is a fabulous dining kitchen with quality units and solid wood worktops, an LPG fuelled AGA and a large stove. There is also a hallway (with a staircase that links to the flat), large lounge with stove, dining/games room, downstairs WC, utility room and a boot or tack room in the former kitchen. Upstairs there are two double bedrooms, a house and en-suite bathroom, and two single bedrooms.
The apartment has an access up stone stairs to the rear of the house, leading to a good sized kitchen with an impressive stone arch through to a fantastic living room with beautiful views, and a double bedroom with bathroom (which would benefit from upgrading). The flat could easily be incorporated into the main house if further accommodation was required.
Outside, the property has extensive grounds mainly laid to lawn with mature shrubs and trees, ample parking and a garage. Virtually adjoining the property (over a little bridge) is the 5 acres of quality grazing land currently used for horses.
Old Park offers a wonderfully rural, yet not isolated, home in a beautiful, undiscovered area of Cumbria. Viewing is essential to appreciate all that the house and land have to offer.
