Undoubtedly, when many of us picture our dream home, the result would not be too dissimilar to this delightful historic Carlisle property.

St Ann's House house dates back to the Georgian era and is situated high above the River Eden. It is listed for £750k by Hayward Tod Associates.

The home has been extensively refurbished and improved and boasts a large and private garden which leads onto the river and includes fishing rights.

Also listed on Right Move, the home is described as being in 'turnkey condition'.

The internal accommodation at St Ann's House is "wonderfully spacious and every room is beautifully presented. A grand glazed entrance porch opens in to a wide inner hallway," the listing states.

The estate agent adds: "There are two reception rooms, with the larger having an impressive bay window and corner aspect towards the gardens as well as having the benefit of a wood burning stove."

"The second reception room is also generously proportioned and again overlooks the gardens. The kitchen dining area is a wonderful entertaining space with a large island sitting centrally around a good bank of units housing a range of integrated appliances and sitting underneath granite worktops."

Upstairs, the property is equally as impressive.

"There are four large bedrooms on the first floor with two having modern en-suite showers," the estate agent reveals. "The master bedroom on the southern corner of the property has a large walk-in wardrobe as well as the en-suite shower and further benefits from elevated views back across the city and south towards the Lakeland Fells. The modern family bathroom features a shower over the bath. Externally there is ample paved driveway parking and a large expanse of lawned garden.

In short, Right Move concludes: "St Ann's house is undoubtedly one of Carlisle finest city homes and presents a wonderful opportunity for the buyer to secure a superb period home offered in excellent condition throughout."
