Full Details

Based in the boundary of the Lake District National Park and dating back to the late 1600s, Old Low House was transformed into a family home from the original old farmhouse around 1970.

Based in the boundary of the Lake District National Park and dating back to the late 1600s, Old Low House was transformed into a family home from the original old farmhouse around 1970. It is an early example of what was to become a massive trend for repurposing agricultural buildings. Original exposed oak trusses and traditional Lakeland slate throughout the property represent the late century vibe of the original conversion. Further characteristics of traditional features include flagged floors, slate sills and stone millions just to name a few with two of the bedrooms formerly an Apple Loft and Granary. The present owners have moved the traditional Lakeland building forward with a series of upgrades such as the extension to include a ground floor double bedroom, shower room, utility, and the building of a double garage. This characteristic and individual home reveals itself room by room with a unique layout featuring four reception rooms, six generously proportioned bedrooms, one bathroom, shower room, utility room and WC. Old Low House benefits from a horseshoe shape garden with an outhouse, a double garage, and plenty of parking for several cars.

The history of the Lake District can be found around each corner of Old Low House. Its unique capabilities present great potential and adaptability, with plenty of scope for a wonderful renovation project.

There is also further opportunity to acquire a parcel of land (circa 1.55 acres) located a mile away from the property.  Further information can is available from the agents.
