Welcome to High House, a 300-year old exquisitely presented Lake District home, nestled on an escarpment high above the river Irt, boasting 8 acres of private woodland and spectacular views of the Eskdale Valley and Fells in rural tranquillity.
The home was awarded and presented with a Gold Award 2009 for excellence by a prestigious holiday company. Fine attention has been made to detail, creating a house that is beautiful throughout.
Nearby is Ravenglass, an ancient Roman sea port where you will find ‘La’al Ratty’ a miniature steam railway that runs 8 miles up the Eskdale Valley. Wastwater Lake (Britain’s favourite view 2007), Scafell Pike England’s tallest mountain and Muncaster Castle and Gardens are within a short Lakeland drive. There are many superb country pubs serving local produce, in the area, the nearest to High House is just an easy 10 minute walk!
High House is in beautiful order throughout with doors leading to the gardens from the kitchen, sitting room and dining room. The main door, however, leads to a spacious hallway and the reception rooms can be accessed from here.
The kitchen is large and has dining for six people, plus a comfy sofa making this a real living kitchen. It is fully equipped with gas range with electric oven, microwave, fridge, freezer, dishwasher and plenty of storage space. A wood burning stove adds to the cosy feel. There is a washing machine and tumble drier in a separate utility room.
The sitting room is spacious with TV, DVD player, woodburning stove & CD player.
For formal dining, there is a table to seat six in stylish surroundings. The room is cool in summer and warm in winter with a wood burning stove.
There is also a toilet downstairs.
The stone stairways are over three hundred years old and worn down by many generations.
They lead to the first floor which has one king, one double and two bathrooms (one of which is ensuite with bath and shower, the other is for guests using the second bedroom and has electric shower & WC).
At the top of the house is the attic suite with retreat room to take advantage of the stunning views, top double bedroom also with views and shower-room with WC (please take note of low ceilings and low beams).
Throughout the house, fine attention has been made to detail, creating a house that is splendid throughout.
Outside the garden covers all sides of the house with a paddock area to the South, decking area ( with garden furniture ) by the kitchen and lots of nooks and crannies elsewhere. There is also a gin & tonic deck!
There are several acres of woodland that you are welcome to explore. Please note, however, that these woodlands are private and as such do not have set paths. The woods lead down to the river which can be lovely to swim in.
