Currently on the market via Finest Properties with a guide price of £1.95 million, Four Gables is an enticing property for anyone looking to escape to the country.
Sitting majestically on beautiful grounds, the magnificent country house is more than enough to get the heart racing. But it’s the spectacular trio of luxury holiday cottages that make this property truly irresistible. “In today’s upmarket scene, life in the country offers a captivating mix of simple pleasures and sophistication,” says Ryan Eve, Managing Director of Finest Properties. “Those searching for a stunning country home, new business venture or change of lifestyle will be hard pressed to find a property more remarkable than Four Gables.” Currently operating as a successful lifestyle and business venture, Four Gables comprises a stunning private home and three luxurious self-catering cottages that consistently win five-star reviews. Occupying an idyllic position, the property offers peace and seclusion whilst simultaneously being within easy reach of market towns, beautiful beaches and the spectacular fells of the Lake District. “Proximity to good rail, road and air links makes this property all the more appealing,” says Ryan. “The site itself also offers outstanding potential to interested parties considering other business ventures. This could allow for the expansion of the holiday business or the creation of alternative income streams, whether it be a wedding venue or wellness retreat.”The main house and cottages have been sensitively renovated to offer accommodation of the highest standard. The largest of the cottages is a sumptuous barn conversion with five bedrooms, sleeping up to 10 guests. The second cottage accommodates six guests, whilst the third offers two bedrooms. The eco-credentials are also highly impressive, including a biomass boiler that was installed under a commercial RHI scheme. “The index-linked payments have so far covered all fuel costs for the entire site,” explains Ryan. “And payments will continue until 2035.”As you arrive at Four Gables, it will be a case of instant, hopeless love-at-first sight. The parkland-style gardens are a pleasure to behold, with formal gardens for the house incorporating expansive lawns and several outdoor seating areas. There’s always somewhere to enjoy the sun, whatever the time of day. If you forgot to pack your tennis rackets, keep an open mind. “The former tennis court could be developed as stables to service an equestrian set up,” says Ryan. “There’s certainly plenty of scope within the property’s generous grounds.” And why not, we say. For what’s a life in the country without a pony or two?
