Stunning 18th Century Cumbrian Equestrian Home
We are excited to bring to market a most magnificent, newly renovated, rural lifestyle property on the edge of the Lake District Park. This is Wells House, a four-bedroom 18th century farmhouse, with high quality stables, tack room, 12 acres of grazing land, a two bedroom lodge, woodland, extensive gardens and a range of outbuildings.
Wells House is located just minutes from the sought after village of Skelton, near Penrith and is being offered for sale with a guide price of £1,275,000, through the Penrith office of H&H Land & Estates.
This is an all-encompassing equestrian property, with bespoke stables, suitable for up to four horses and purpose-built and fully fitted tack room. The land, suitable for grazing, is currently divided into three paddocks each with their own water supply, there is also an additional field shelter, and the property is surrounded by plentiful quiet hacking routes.
Wells House itself is a traditional four bedroom detached house which has been beautifully renovated and restored. Contemporary fittings, such as a glass staircase, rub shoulders with traditional features, including an inglenook fireplace and original barn arrow slits.
In addition to a large family kitchen there is boot room, a snug room, drawing room and formal dining room with its own mezzanine floor. The main bedroom has an en-suite and dressing room, and the three other bedrooms are all of a good size and all have built in wardrobes.
The adjacent two bedroom wooden lodge has its own private garden and parking. Currently rented out as holiday accommodation, it realises an income of in the region of £24,000 per annum.
Glenn Howard, our Penrith Branch Manager, says of Wells House:
“This charming, 18th Century farmhouse is such an exciting prospect for anyone looking for a home for their family and their horses! The house itself has a wealth of character, with original features dating back to 1760, and the stable facilities are of the very highest quality.”
“Wells House is a large family home, located in a beautiful setting accessed by a private gated lane. There is ample space for home working and for those commuting, the M6 and mainline train stations of both Penrith and Carlisle are easily accessible.”
“With Blencathra, the UNESCO World Heritage Site and the Lake District National Park on the doorstep this is a perfect opportunity for those looking to pursue their equine lifestyle, to enjoy the great outdoors or to start their first footsteps into farming.”
