Property description

A seven bedroom detached house pleasantly situated on the edge of this popular South Lakeland village and close to nearby Cartmel. The property dates back to 1747 and includes a range of barns, outbuildings, garages, tennis court, orchard, woodland, large garden extending to around 3 acres. E.R: G

The Green is a substantial 18th Century small rural estate, occupying an excellent position on the outskirts of the popular South Lakeland village of Cark-in-Cartmel and only a five minute drive by car to Cartmel.

The accommodation is arranged over three levels with six bedrooms at first floor level and a 7th at the second floor attic level. There is also a tank room at attic level which is of a significant size and provides useful storage. There is a further attic space accessed from the rear landing of the first floor, again with much potential.

There are many original features throughout the house, including an abundance of exposed beams, the impressive curved “cruck-style” beam structure in the attic bedroom and the bread oven in the downstairs inner hallway. The dining room fireplace in the style of Robert Adam is believed to be Georgian.

This is the first time since 1939 that this property has become available on the open market and is a truly unique opportunity. There is excellent potential to develop the barn and other ancillary buildings. We have no hesitation in recommending an early interior inspection.

There are 5 further lots of land available by separate negotiation.

From our Grange-over-Sands office, continue uphill then keep straight on (first exit) at the mini-roundabout. Follow this road through Allithwaite to enter Flookburgh over the railway bridge. About 110m after the bridge, take the narrow turn along the far wall of The Crown Inn (not signed, but as you turn you will see ‘Green Lane’ on the wall to the right. At the end of this road, turn right and the gate to The Green is immediately on your left hand side (3.7 miles from our office).

Situated on the outskirts of the popular villages of Cark and Cartmel, this 7 bedroom detached house dates back to 1747 when it was a farmstead. Standing in its own gardens and grounds it includes a tennis court, orchard, a range of outbuildings, barn with squash court and two double garages. This area of south Lakeland remains largely unspoiled, surrounded by rolling countryside and within easy reach of nearby Morecambe Bay, Cartmel with its historic 12th century Priory, Gatehouse, racecourse, Sticky Toffee Pudding Co. and L'Enclume. A popular destination for visitors throughout the year.

The gardens and grounds are extensive, incorporating a small orchard with a numerous variety of fruit trees including apples and pears, plums and damsons, a tennis court, two double garages and various outbuildings which include a stone barn which has been turned into a squash court with an overhead viewing gallery.
