WHY IVEGILL? The Old Vicarage sits on the fringe of the village of Ivegill in a beautifully private site, being totally surrounded by its own extensive gardens and grounds. Conveniently located for access to the wider north Cumbria region, the property is near equidistant to Carlisle and Penrith, the latter being the northern gateway to the Lake District National Park. Both Carlisle and Penrith have stations on the West Coast Mainline with direct trains to London in as little as three hours. A short distance to the west is the Solway Coast, a designated AONB, famed for its diverse birdlife and being home to the western end of Hadrian's Wall. To the east is the head of the Eden Valley, which leads down to the North Pennines AONB and to the north is the Scottish Borders. 

ACCOMMODATION Having been subject to extensive renovation at the hands of the current owners The Old Vicarage is offered in superb condition throughout and has been finished to the highest specifications. The generous Grade II listed accommodation offers a great deal of flexibility, having at one point been split in to three separate dwellings. The main house comprises a high quality bespoke kitchen with AGA which is complimented by a large utility room with impressive glazed pitched roof. A dining room, with open fire sits to the front of the property and across the entrance hallway, complete with original encaustic floor tiles, lies a generous dual aspect living room with a large floor to ceiling bay window taking in a wonderful southerly view through the trees towards Ivegill Church and the Lakeland fells beyond. French doors lead from the rear of the hallway to the side garden and at the rear of the property is a well proportioned study, benefiting from a dual aspect towards the rear garden and retaining may original features. Additionally there is a large cloakroom and W.C. The stairs to the first floor, which are a beautiful feature in themselves, have a stunning stained glass window on their half landing depicting the Arms of the Archbishop of York, the Bishop of Carlisle, the Rev. Hulton who was the first incumbent, and his successor. The remainder of the ground floor, which would originally have been the servant's quarters would make an ideal granny annex or separate letting if desired and currently comprises an office, second sitting room with stove, a modern breakfast kitchen and a garden room with large dual aspect windows overlooking the garden, a second utility room and an en-suite bedroom. From the back hallway there is access to a cellar. To the first floor there are five en-suite bedrooms, a sixth double bedroom and an attic bedroom to the second floor. There is a second staircase, formerly for the servants which extends to the attic bedroom on the second floor. The bedrooms in the main part of the house have wonderful high ceilings and exposed beams. 

THE GROUNDS Approached via a gated gravel driveway, the property sits in a beautifully private site, with formal gardens wrapping around the property. To the rear of the property is a substantial detached coach house, which has the benefit of two stables within it and two garage stores, with a hayloft above. The building could have further development potential should the buyer wish, this would of course be subject to obtaining the necessary permissions. The Old Vicarage has the benefit of a significant parcel of land totalling almost nine acres which has been split in to five paddocks of good flat grazing land.. The largest to the rear of the property is currently a wild flower meadow and has far reaching views to the Lakeland hills.  

In short, The Old Vicarage is a stunning package of house and land offered in superb order and provides the eventual buyer with a rare opportunity to secure one of regions finest homes, convenient for Carlisle, Penrith and the Lake District.
