WHY CLIFTON? The historic village of Clifton, the last battleground on English soil in 1745, is situated on the northern fringe of the Lake District National Park, just minutes from Penrith and the M6 motorway. The village also boasts a primary school, church and popular Pub. Penrith just a couple of minutes drive to the north, benefits from a wide range of amenities and a station on the West Coast Mainline offering direct rail links to London Euston in just under three hours and acts as a gateway to the wider Lake District, the North Pennines AONB and Yorkshire Dales National Park.
ACCOMMODATION Whitrigg House is an imposing Grade II listed Georgian residence which has been thoughtfully and tastefully modernised, extended and improved. The impressive frontage gives way to an inner hall, from which the rest of the accommodation is accessed. The large living room to the front of the property opens out to the rear where down a short set of steps the orangery can be found with a bank of bi-fold doors opening out to the garden. The space is currently utilised as a large dining room, however could quite feasibly be a multipurpose living/dining space as required. The kitchen is perfectly formed and is complimented by a useful utility space, also housing the boiler. In addition there is a small study/snug to the front of the property and a large cloakroom W.C. The stairs to the first floor rise from the hallway and lead to three en-suite bedrooms, the largest of which has a generous bathroom and a Juliette balcony taking in views through the trees towards the Fells. The second double bedroom to the front of the property has an en-suite shower as does the third, a large single to the rear. The windows are all double glazed, with the front windows being of the sliding sash variety and the majority also have functioning shutters. The property is presented in excellent order throughout. Externally there is a gravelled forecourt providing parking and a lawned garden to the rear. Through the trees at the bottom of the garden a path leads to a large shed complete with sauna. There is also a right of access across the adjacent field to a gate at the bottom of the garden should it ever be required.
N.B. The property has historically traded as a luxury bed and breakfast winning Cumbria Tourism's B&B of the year in 2016. Whilst the property is in no way sold as a going concern it may be possible to negotiate the purchase of the furnishings if this was of interest. The property has not operated as such since March 2019. As a result there are no current trading figures able to be provided.
The adjacent property, Harrison House, is also for sale and is currently run as a holiday letting. The option to purchase both is available should it be of interest.
