The Hallows is approached through one of two gated entrances, one leading to a gravel parking area and garage, and the other through an impressive yew hedge archway, into an additional sandstone parking area. The original chapel was built in the late 19th Century as a private chapel for the nearby Manor House. Now converted, the front entrance leads into a vestibule area with cloakroom and then into the entrance hall, with grand stairwell and gothic style arched windows.
From the entrance hall you are led into the remarkable open plan living area, which retains many of the chapel’s original features. The chapel nave area now forms a comfortable sitting room, with a circular wood burning stove and beautiful arched leaded windows. Steps lead up to the circular chancel space, which is now a unique double height formal dining area, with impressive vaulted tower ceiling and a magnificent sandstone archway leading into the sitting area.
An original arched chapel door leads into an inner hallway with storage cupboards and into the modern day extension. The sizeable kitchen has bespoke fitted cabinets, with solid oak worktop, breakfast bar and Aga range cooker. On clear days views of the North Lakeland fells can be enjoyed from here.
The kitchen opens into the light-filled sunroom, with views of the gardens and surrounding countryside and space for dining and relaxing. Both the sunroom and formal dining room have doors out onto an elevated sandstone terrace area for alfresco dining.
The original chapel houses the bedrooms, with one off the ground floor entrance hall and two on the first floor, with fitted wardrobes and large dormer windows offering views of the surrounding countryside. The split-level house bathroom has a large walk-in shower and full wall basin vanity unit.
To the outside the detached double garage offers flexible use, with an additional workshop room at the rear, which could also serve as a home office. The workshop and terrace overlook the garden with lawn area, mature trees and shrubs, greenhouse and attractive pond with a hidden wooded area beyond.
The Hallows is situated in the peaceful hamlet of Bowscar, approached along a tree-lined lane and elevated with excellent views of the North Lakeland fells. The hamlet is within walking distance of the Stoneybeck Inn and the nearby A6 and M6 motorway junctions offer excellent transport links to Carlisle, Penrith and the North Lakes.
The market town of Penrith is a short drive away with a good selection of schools, shops, amenities and national main line rail links.
