Kelso House is a superb, spacious period property situated in the centre of Kirkby Stephen. Recently modernised throughout to an exceptionally high standard creating a welcoming home, full of charm and character.

Kirkby Stephen is just ten miles from junction 38 of the M6 motorway and is well placed for Kendal, Penrith, Appleby and the Lake District. The scenic Settle to Carlisle Railway is on the doorstep and the Coast to Coast and Lady Ann footpaths run through. Kirkby Stephen has highly regarded primary and grammar schools as well as a good range of shops, restaurants & pubs, church, chapel and doctor's surgery. There is still a weekly outdoor market and an agricultural auction mart.

Kelso House is a very deceptive property; it has many original features as well as high ceilings and generously apportioned rooms one expects in a Georgian house. Works included windows and doors, heating system, electrics, kitchen and bathrooms, including the restoration of the original features.

On the ground floor there is a grand entrance hall with turned staircase and stained-glass window as well as the original tiled flooring. From the hallway there are two large characterful reception rooms. To the rear is a contemporary kitchen, ground floor wet room and the garden room (if required could be an additional bedroom) which opens to the beautiful rear patio.

On the first floor, there is a lovely house bathroom and four generous bedrooms, the master having a dressing room which can also be accessed from the hallway. The second floor remains unconverted but can be accessed via a steep staircase from the landing. This space is an ideal playroom/hobby room/office or additional accommodation if required.

Externally, to the rear is a private, good sized garden with long distance views of the surrounding hills. The garden is raised with well-established flowerbeds and borders. There is off road parking to the side and a gravel area (currently leased by the Council on a peppercorn rent). The outbuilding, originally the stable leads on to the parking area allowing garaging/workshop if required. The two-storey stable retains the original cobbles and stalls as well as a workshop on the side, this offers development potential (subject to planning permissions).

Kelso House is an excellent opportunity to purchase a truly beautiful period property.
