An 18th century house, on Abbey Street, hits the market
A beautifully presented 18th century Georgian house on Abbey Street in Carlisle has just come on the market.
The property, which was built in 1760, was listed with an asking price of £600,000.
The listing for the beautiful home is Red Hot Property, Hexham.
A spokesperson for the organization said: “Built in the 1760s, this Grade II listed building combines classical features, spanning four floors, with mixed-use accommodation.
“The current owners have planning permission to convert the adjoining buildings into an annexe with guest bedroom and bathroom, as well as the conversion of the hayloft and stable into a games room.
“Please view the 360° virtual tour to fully appreciate the renovation carried out so far in this magnificent family home,” they said.
The spacious three-story home features an elegantly rustic courtyard, a perfect hideaway given the property’s downtown location.
“The large welcoming hallway doubles as a further reception room, to the left is the music room with a hidden door leading to the formal dining room and access to a utility room and cloakroom/WC.
“The kitchen is fitted with a Belfast cooker and sink and has a rustic charm and overlooks the sunny backyard, a perfect spot for morning coffee. Stone stairs lead up to the cellar and storage room, which could be further developed.
“The elegant staircase passes the characteristic arched window and leads to the impressive first floor landing with a beautiful sitting room and marble fireplace.
“There are two large bedrooms and a period style bathroom with a free-standing cast iron bath, plus a further bathroom with a separate shower and a separate WC. This leads into a spacious studio/bedroom. From the main landing , a second staircase leads to a trio of attic rooms, including an office, a sewing room and another bedroom,” they said.
The location of the property benefits from a very desirable city center location, close to the cathedral, shopping areas and close to schools and necessary transport.
