Fountain View, Dufton, Appleby-In-Westmorland Under Offer


Fountain View is a superb traditional Cumbrian longhouse with sizeable attached barn on a large plot with exceptional Pennine fell views. The property requires updating but has charming character features and great potential to be a wonderful family home. The property is located at the heart of the attractive conservation village of Dufton in the North Pennine AONB.

Location
Dufton is a highly desirable conservation village at the foot of the Pennine Fells. The village has an excellent pub, tearoom/store and an active village hall, with primary school nearby in Long Marton. The market town of Appleby is just a few miles away with further schools, amenities and Settle-Carlisle railway station.

The House & Outbuildings
At the front of the ground floor are two good sized reception rooms and a kitchen, all with open fireplaces, with potential to create a large dining kitchen. Off the sitting room is an ‘utility’ room with sink, which would make an excellent family room or study. At the rear of the ground floor is a pantry room with stone worktops and two further rooms, which would be ideal as utility and boot room/cloakroom.

On the first floor are four double bedrooms with views of the village green or Cross Fell. One bedroom has a large adjoining store room, which could be developed into an ensuite or dressing room and there is a family bathroom with three piece suite.

Adjoining the property is a large double height barn with hayloft, exposed timbers and stone flagged floor. There is potential to extend the house into this space or to create an additional property or home business space (subject to necessary planning consents). Next to the barn are two further stone workshops/storerooms.

Outside
Fountain View has an exceptional plot with large gardens to the front and rear. The sizeable lawned back garden has fruit trees and breathtaking views of Cross Fell and High Cup Nick. The cottage style front garden has lawns, flower borders and overlooks the attractive village green and fountain. The property has a good sized parking area to the front of the outbuildings.
