LOCATION Staffield Hall sits at the head of the picturesque Eden Valley just outside the settlement of Staffield and less than 4 miles from Armathwaite, which has a station on the scenic Carlisle to Settle railway line as well as two Public Houses and a village shop. Penrith, a bustling market town, is just a 20 minute drive to the south and acts as the northern gateway to The Lake District. Penrith has a wide range of amenities, including national chain stores and more specialist local outlets, as well as being served by the West Coast Mainline which offers services to London Euston in 3 hours and Glasgow in 1hr 30 minutes. The M6 motorway at junction 41 is also just a 20 minute drive and also the A66 providing trans-Pennine links to the east.
ACCOMMODATION The internal accommodation is offered in excellent order throughout and is currently split in to 8 self contained apartments, plus a communal hallway and office. The layout of the hall also lends itself to reinstatement as a large dwelling retaining the three second floor apartments which could have an access independent of the main residence. For purchasers wishing to live on site, the large three bedroom apartment on the ground floor would make a superb owners accommodation and is perfectly placed to enjoy the far reaching views across the stepped gardens down the valley beyond. The grand hallway, complete with stunning stained glass window acts as a wonderful central hub. There is also a second smaller staircase providing access to all floors. Throughout the property there are many original features which have been retained through the numerous renovations and improvements undertaken at the property by the current owners. The Hall is approached by a sweeping driveway and has ample hardstanding parking. The gardens wrap round the front and side of the property and are stepped leading down to a grand fountain.
