Fully renovated to exacting standards this 19th-century Georgian landmark home is located in one of Ecclestons most historically important locations overlooking the River Yarrow and St Mary the Virgin church to the front and enjoying far reaching views to the rear. Its eye-catching exterior has long been revered and admired by people visiting the village, yet as impressive as the exterior is, the property only gets better as you enter.

Coming through its own private electronic gated entrance you are struck by the privacy and sense of open space you find in the large courtyard and drive with stunning panoramic open views and sunny vistas beyond. There are extensive gardens that wrap around the rear of the property with a wooden stable and tack room plus a small fenced paddock area perfect for a small horse or pony together with enclosed lawned gardens and landscaped patio areas for outside seating. There is also a bespoke detached triple garage offering well in excess of 600 square feet that has been built to a very high specification with insulated walls and tiled roof.

A former house associated with the local mill this beautiful property was built in the 1830’s and has been sympathetically renovated and restored with no expense spared featuring a whole host of simply stunning period features; rooms are painted in a calming palette of neutral tones, and a whole host of original features have been retained including stained glass leaded windows and the original front door, the original working sash windows throughout the property which have been restored and upgraded with double glazing, original window shutters & wood panelled walls, exposed working fireplaces, the original spindle staircase plus all the pitch pine internal doors with original working latches.

All of these distinctive features are now complimented with a stylish modern finish and high quality fittings that includes two beautiful reception rooms full of character at the front of the property, a spacious study and at its heart a sleek "Shaker style" fitted kitchen with large central entertaining breakfast bar and extended family room with vaulted ceiling and oak French doors that open right out onto the patio in the rear garden. Upstairs there are four bedrooms; a lovely guest bedroom overlooking the historic church to front with full sized ensuite bathroom, master bedroom with oak engineered flooring and river side views, another doubled bedroom with farmland views to rear and featuring an original cast iron fireplace plus a spacious children's bedroom with fitted robes and ensuite shower room.
