Castle Street, Carlisle


A magnificent five storey Georgian townhouse of grand proportions with superb period features throughout. The accommodation in this exceptional Grade II* Listed property includes three reception rooms, four bedrooms, two bathrooms plus a self contained basement apartment.   The property is located in a Carlisle City centre conservation area, within close proximity to historic city landmarks, shops and amenities.

This remarkable gentleman’s residence was built in 1823 for and by Paul Nixson, an architect with his own marble works.  No expense was spared in building the property and high end period features still remain throughout, including marble fireplaces, moulded plasterwork, arched doorway and working window shutters.  

The highlight of the property is a breathtaking spiral staircase, with cast iron balustrade and domed skylight above.  The principal rooms are of generous proportions with high ceilings and large sash windows bathing them in light. 

In the recent years the property has been sympathetically renovated and upgraded, including the installation of luxurious bathroom suites and an impressive contemporary kitchen.  

At basement level is a self contained unit, which has historically been let as offices, but which would suit other uses, subject to the necessary consents.  This space offers income potential, if desired.
