Guide price

  • Bedrooms: 6
If you are looking for a substantial period property look no further ! This stunning Grade ll listed house has all the character and charm you could wish for. Many original period features remain: beams, flagged floors, servant bells, bread oven, pantry, wood doors, cupboards. There are also two original staircases: one leading off the reception hall, the other being the 'servants staircase' which leads from the dining kitchen to the first floor reception room.

The accommodation is offered in excellent order both internally and externally and represents excellent value for money. The layout is flexible to suit a variety of uses: residential - spacious enough for two families or parents who wish to live in as it has a ground floor suite. This would also be ideal for someone who may be infirm or disabled who can not manage stairs.

Previously used as a bed and breakfast there is the chance to set up your own business as St.Bees is the start of the famous 'Coast to Coast' which encourages continuous trade throughout the year. The coastal village location is popular with holiday makers and tourist alike - those who love the great out doors and wish to explore the Lakes as the Lake District National Park (Unesco world Heritage status) is within easy to reach.

The property is offered with NO FORWARD CHAIN.

The accommodation covers three floors being beautifully presented throughout. The layout allows you to use the room to suit your own lifestyle and they compliment each other in presentation too. This really is a 'once in a lifetime dream home' as it is adaptable to suit a growing family. Even though the accommodation is on an impressively spacious scale this dwelling manages to retain a 'homely feel' which is instant the moment you step into the reception hall. As you would expect of a property of this period it has plenty of storage space/cupboards/areas.

To the rear of the property is an elevated, enclosed courtyard garden having views towards the priory and beyond. Partly cobbled to give a traditional feel this low maintenance garden is a great space to entertain or relax and enjoy the out doors. There is a timber Summer house and a drying area plus original sconces for seating, potting/storage. The parking area to the side of the property is easily accessible and can accommodate seven cars or ideal for motor home/caravan/RV.

The village of St. Bees is well known as it is the start of the famous 'coast to coast' walk. On the door step and in walking distance are the shop/post office, station, beach, cafe/ice cream parlour, hotel, pubs, eateries, golf course, primary school, the Priory and the historic 'St Bees School' (offering private education). The location is ideal to reach all the major employment centres in the area, the train station gives access to the west coast line north and south. The Lake District National Park (Unesco World Heritage Site) being close by.
