Gaisgill Farm is an impressive Grade II Listed Farmhouse sitting prominently at the top of the village of Gaisgill. It is in need of full renovation, having remained untouched for many years.

Gaisgill is a small hamlet in the Eden Valley now part of the Yorkshire Dales National Park. Gaisgill is just off the main A685 route from Brough to Tebay having excellent travel links via road, with the M6, being just a 1.5 mile drive away. There is also nearby train station, from Kirkby Stephen on the Settle - Carlisle line. There are excellent walks and views from the doorstep.

Gaisgill Farm dates back to 1722 and boasts a wealth of features including exposed roof timbers, sash windows and stone staircase which, once restored, will add character to the property.

The accommodation is spacious, split over three floors. On the ground floor there is a rear dining kitchen and large sitting room to the front. Upstairs are four good bedrooms and the family bathroom. On the third floor are a further three bedrooms and a shower room.

Externally, to the rear, are a good range of outbuildings. There is a large stone barn which has been extended over time and would offer great development potential (subject to necessary planning permissions). There is another stone barn with fold yard, this has access into two of the fields. A tin sheet workshop would also make an ideal stable/wood store if required.

In addition to the house and buildings there is around 8 acres of meadow/pasture land which sits to the North and West of Gaisgill and runs alongside the minor road to the South.

Gaisgill Farm offers a fantastic renovation project to any and all investors/developers and would easily make a beautiful home.
