Whitrow Farm, Waberthwaite, LA19 5YN
Whitrow Farm is a stunning property enjoying an idyllic location within the Lake District National Park. Set within lovely rolling countryside between the West Cumbrian coast and the high fells of the Lake District, it is a fascinating area of contrasting landscapes, and an ideal location for exploring this more remote and tranquil area of the National Park. Nearby is the picturesque village of Ravenglass on the River Esk estuary from where the famous narrow gauge railway runs to Eskdale Green, and Muncaster Castle on a promontory above the river. The house is set well back from the road, and approached from the A595 via a private single track lane which leads into a spacious cobbled courtyard to the front of the property and further generous gravelled parking and turning areas to the side.
Whitrow Farm originally comprised a farmhouse and attached barn believed to date back some 300 years. The present owners purchased the property in 2000 and then completely renovated and converted the property to create a most impressive, generously proportioned, four-bedroomed home of considerable character, together with an attached two-bedroomed cottage. The cottage is currently successfully utilised for holiday lettings, but connecting doors between the main house and cottage would easily facilitate the use of the property as a single large family home or with private accommodation for a dependant relative, etc. This tasteful conversion combines the original rustic features of this period property with the requirements of modern living, and a particular feature is the deceptively spacious accommodation on offer. The property displays a wealth of interesting and period features including high vaulted ceilings at first floor level with exposed roof timbers, exposed feature stone walls and ancient timbers, extensive use of solid oak flooring, and spacious reception hall with galleried landing above. The property benefits from underfloor heating on the ground floor and central heating via radiators at first floor, together with sealed unit double glazing throughout in the main house, and part double glazing in the cottage.
All the accommodation is of a generous size and briefly comprises, on ground floor: reception hall, living room, dining room, garden room, breakfast kitchen, utility room, rear hall and shower room. On the first floor there are four double bedrooms, one with en-suite shower room and a main house bathroom. The cottage comprises an open plan living room and kitchen on the ground floor plus two bedrooms and bathroom on the first floor. Outside there are attractive gardens and grounds around the house including outside stores and large timber framed barn. The property also includes paddock land extending to approximately 5.4 acres. Additional fields extending to just over 11.4 acres are available by separate negotiation if required. Whitrow Farm therefore presents an ideal opportunity for those with equestrian or livestock interests.
Outstanding four-bedroomed barn conversion plus attached two bedroomed cottage with land and outbuildings. Delightful and secluded National Park location between sea and mountains. Spacious flexible accommodation.
