A GINORMOUS mansion with 21 bedrooms, 19 bathrooms, and four living rooms, set over 17 acres in the Eden Valley has been sold for at least £2.7 million.

Crossrigg Hall, which lies between Penrith and Appleby, was listed in 2019 with a guide price of a whopping £2,750,000 is no longer on the market.

In 1997, permission was given for the hall to be converted into a hotel, then between 1999-2005, it was used as a wedding venue.

It is the home of dreams with sprawling rooms and hallways that look like they have fallen straight out of a gothic novel.

Finest Properties, the estate agents selling the property, describe the hall best: “Crossrigg Hall is a captivating Grade II* Listed country house occupying a breathtakingly beautiful position in the picturesque Eden Valley and giving scope to a range of superb lifestyle and business opportunities.”

Crossrigg Hall was designed in 1864 by Anthony Salvin, it was subsequently re-modelled and extended by J.H. Martindale in 1914.

As well as the rooms you would typically expect a home to have, Crossrigg Hall also has a huge billiards room, a wine cellar, and a private library that will excite any book lover.

It also has two kitchens.

Set in what was formerly the butler’s pantry, the modern kitchen has a monochrome design and an island hob.

For those who prefer a more traditional kitchen, there is also a country-style kitchen with neutral colours and stone flooring.

Not only is the house itself a sight to behold, the grounds surrounding it have just as much to offer.

There is a Grade II Listed stable courtyard and dovecote, with several traditional outbuildings which look like they should be located in the French countryside.

It has landscaped gardens, four acres of paddocks which can be used for horses or cattle, woodlands, and an orchard with apples, plums, pears, gooseberries and blackcurrants.

Crossrigg Hall is also relatively near to local amenities.
