DESCRIPTION The Grade II* Listing is testament to this property's historic importance not just within North Cumbria but wider afield instanced by the various acknowledgements in Pevsner, Historic England and others. Built in the 14th century by the De Briskau family as a fortified Pele Tower and gentrified in the 1690's, the property has been altered and remodelled over a period of six centuries! Newbiggin now has a 17th century facade and later Georgian features. The property has not just been a much loved family home for 46 years but has also provided an income from two adjoining apartments. The extent of the accommodation is broad as are the opportunities for the new owner to benefit from their investment.

The accommodation is full of character with period features and detail from many centuries. The main rooms on the ground floor are within the massive walls of the Pele Tower. They comprise the generous hall with fireplace which sets the tone. A classic Georgian staircase rises two floors. The impressive dining room with it's valuted ceiling is special and there are remnants of the wall of the original pele tower. The sitting room is charming enjoying a dual aspect to the front garden and small side wood. The spacious breakfast kitchen has a two oven Aga and a door to the garden. The property has evolved over time and presents the incoming buyer with a variety of options to further develop the accommodation. The two apartments occupy portions of the ground and first floors, but can be integrated back in to the main residence as required. The ground floor apartment is most suited to being a separate space and presents income generating potential as a result.

The property sits within some three acres of variously landscaped and wooded grounds. A sweeping drive and lawn fronts the property and provides ample parking. A gateway through an impressive, Grade II listed, sandstone wall dating to the late 15th century, which formed part of a former outbuilding, leads through to another large formal lawned garden. There is a former greenhouse requiring renovation and a more wild wooded area of the garden grounds to the rear.
