Red Lion House, Gamblesby, Penrith


Red Lion House is a Grade II listed detached family home with plenty of kerb appeal, with three bedrooms, two bathrooms, spacious reception rooms and gardens with driveway and outbuilding. The property is located in the picturesque conservation village of Gamblesby in the North Pennine Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

Inside
The property was formally a public house, believed to date back to 1741 with many beautiful period features remaining, including sandstone flag flooring and exposed beams. In 2005 the property underwent major refurbishment and has been sympathetically modernised with a high quality finish throughout, including solid oak doors and flooring. Alfred Wainwright retells of staying in the Red Lion Inn in his book: A Pennine Journey: The Story of a Long Walk in 1938.

The front entrance leads into a generous living room with sandstone flagged floor and welcoming wood burning stove with sandstone surround. The second reception room could serve as a dining room and also has a sandstone fireplace with stove. The kitchen has fitted cabinets with solid oak fronts, solid wood/granite worktops, a Belfast sink and Stoves range cooker.

To the rear of the ground floor is a utility room with fitted cabinets with solid oak fronts, a cloakroom with WC and a rear entrance lobby/boot room with fitted units and Belfast sink. The property also has a cellar accessed via a hatch door in the dining room.

An attractive oak staircase leads to the first floor with three double bedrooms with the generous master bedroom having a full height ceiling and galleried ‘loft’ area. This bedroom has an ensuite shower room with the second large bedroom with a high ceiling having a connecting door into the family bathroom, with luxurious roll top bath and separate shower unit. There is a large railed hanging cupboard off the landing and an under stairs cupboard.

Outside
To the front of the property is a lawn garden with gated driveway and to the rear a cobblestone courtyard with ornate iron entrance gates, oak porch and stone/slate outbuilding with power and lighting and a lean to log store.
