The property has five bedrooms and four reception rooms, with the majority of the accommodation to the front, taking advantage of the spectacular views over the Solway Firth to the Lake District beyond.

Rebecca Reed, handling the sale for Galbraith, said: “The current owners have created an absolutely exceptional property with superb entertaining space, and there is considerable flexibility to use the open plan areas on the first floor as art studios, offices for home working or to create additional bedrooms if preferred. The gardens are equally attractive and the setting of the property, overlooking the sea, is second to none. High Portling House offers a wonderful rural lifestyle and we expect a great deal of interest.”


The accommodation includes: dining room, kitchen, lounge, sun room, utility room, library, living room, second kitchen, boiler room, boot room, five bedrooms, (one en-suite and one with a Jack & Jill bathroom), family bathroom, box room, open plan studio and office space, and additional open plan office space with balcony.


To the front of the property is an expansive lawn enclosed by a dry stone wall. To the side there is mature shrubbery, flower beds, a seating area, lawn, and a well-stocked pond. To the rear of the house is an enclosed kitchen and rose garden which in the later part of the day becomes a sun trap and would make an ideal outdoor entertaining area.


The plot extends to 0.85 acres (0.34 hectares) in all.
