Extensive renovations, a position on the edge of the Lake District National Park and planning approval for a holiday business make this farmhouse an exciting proposition.

The Raise is a Grade II-listed home in the village of Ullock near Cockermouth which has been upgraded to a high specification.

The ground floor of the original farmhouse has potential for additional accommodation or independent living while four good-sized rooms allow plenty of scope for development.

Planning permission has been granted for a barn to be converted into holiday lets, providing a income stream, and a converted studio is ideal for home working.

The Raise has a courtyard providing access to the reception hall and on to the ground-floor rooms, including a cloakroom.

A spacious open-plan breakfasting kitchen and breakfast room, with windows and French doors overlooking the garden, is fitted with a range of contemporary, Shaker-style cream wall and floor cabinets with granite worktops, a central island and integrated appliances.

Stairs lead to the first floor open-plan sitting room and dining room which is ideally placed to enjoy fabulous views to the fells and open countryside beyond.

It has a triple aspect and French doors to a balcony, feature exposed stone walls, a wood-burning stove on a raised hearth, crux beams, oak floor covering throughout and underfloor heating to both areas.

An en-suite master bedroom has glorious views and underfloor heating, as do two of the further three bedrooms on the first floor which share the family bathroom.

Externally, The Raise has a gated entrance to a private drive with the courtyard providing parking for several cars, complemented by two garages.

Adjoining one garage is the studio with French doors and skylights and opposite is the unconverted barn which has planning permission for conversion into holiday lets.

There is an additional two-bay stable block and further stores.

Gardens surround the property and are mainly lawned with a gravelled sun terrace, vegetable garden and greenhouse and paddocks extending more than one and three-quarter acres.
