Once a grand stately home and the centrepiece of the Kirklinton Estate in Cumbria, Kirklinton Hall is now offering the opportunity to rebuild and restore the remains of this historic property and create a home of great distinction.
The Grade-II listed mansion enjoys a rich and varied history with the oldest part of the structure being a medieval Pele Tower and was extended and modified in later periods with superb 17th Century, Georgian and Victorian additions. The planning permission offers appealing versatility, allowing the next owner to complete the renovation to meet their requirements and achieve an unsurpassed private home, with beautiful gardens set amidst the picturesque scenery of Cumbria. Detailed architectural plans have been drawn up to complete the renovations of the Hall. As currently set out, these include: dining room, kitchen, utility room, cloakroom, boot room, breakfast room, conservatory, an impressive main hall, covered terrace and study on the ground floor with wine cellars on the lower floor.
Upstairs the proposed accommodation includes on the first floor a drawing room, master bedroom with en-suite bathroom and dressing room, and three further bedrooms, with en-suite bathrooms. The second floor would have a library, tower room, five bedrooms (two en-suite) and bathroom. There is also an attic level which could beused for a variety of purposes.
The adjoining pavillion has already been refurbished which might provide a useful base for the purchaser while the works are completed. The plans also envisage conversion of some of the outbuildings into two separate cottages.
The property has 13.6 acres of delightful gardens and grounds including formal terraces, a water garden, walled garden, orchard, a productive kitchen garden and a paddock. A pretty brook runs through the grounds leading to a waterfall and the Faerie Glen – a romantic woodland walk.
Kirklinton Hall is surrounded by the beautiful countryside of Cumbria, and within easy reach of the Lake District and the unspoilt coastline of the Solway Firth and south west Scotland.
