Of solid limestone construction under a Lakeland slate roof, the property is well presented throughout and enjoys traditional features such as muti-paned period style windows (some with window seats), slate flagged floors, exposed beams and has the warm, welcoming and comfortable feelings of an established, much loved family home.
