Located in the picturesque Lune Valley, convenient for Kirkby Lonsdale, the Lake District National Park to the north, Yorkshire Dales National Park to the east, the Forest of Bowland to the south and Arnside & Silverdale Area of Natural Beauty to the west. The 10 acre grounds are accessed through electrically operated gates leading to a tree lined driveway to the castle's main gate and on to the two allocated parking spaces in the courtyard.

An exceptional conversion resulting in a well planned flexible home of excellent proportions decorated to the highest standard. A gated entrance leads to the private courtyard and providing an immediate sense of arrival. The stone entrance porch leads into the delightful hallway separating the principle living spaces. The simply impressive kitchen, framed above by an orangery style roof, is naturally light and bright and includes a discreet utility room. The kitchen has a range of contemporary white units with granite worksurfaces, raised breakfast bar, circular island units and is open to the dining area, warmed by an inset fireplace. To the side a splendid garden room overlooks the grounds and enjoys panoramic views.

The lounge is luxurious with a natural focal point of an inset fireplace and French doors leading to the terrace which overlooks the moat. A second set of French doors open onto the courtyard allowing for al-fresco entertaining in the summer. The adjoining second reception room, ideal for relaxing, also has access to the terrace. A small inner hallway provides access to an en-suite guest bedroom, currently presented as a study with fitted oak furniture.

The hallway also leads to the landing and three bedrooms. The principle bedroom has a private roof terrace and en-suite. The other two bedrooms (one currently utilised as a dressing room with built in wardrobes) share a bespoke en-suite shower room.

In addition, accessed by the private lower ground courtyard, is a separate annex with kitchenette and shower room. A most versatile living space, ideal for long term guests, gym or relaxation.

Externally there is a private double garage, ample visitor parking and shared use of the communal grounds with gardens and hard surface tennis court.
