SITUATION AND DESCRIPTION St Anns House is a fine Grade II Listed home of beautiful proportions. Circa 1806 with later 1830's and 1840's extensions, has its place in Carlisle's history. Most notable the son of the poet William Wordsworth, who lived there from 1857 to 1870. At the start of the second World War it was purchased by Carlisle City Council and used as the Judge's lodgings for an extended period including after the late 1980's when the property was acquired by nearby Austin Friars School until they sold it for use as a private residence.
From the moment you enter the drive through automatic gates, it is immediately obvious that this is a house of considerable style and character. The handsome whitewashed elevations beam in the sunlight. The private grounds and ample parking do not disappoint. The location is one of considerable convenience, being close to Austin Friars School and within easy reach of the popular restaurants, bars and shops within Stanwix village. Just across the river are a superb range of social, leisure and retail opportunities within central Carlisle. Public transport is to hand as is access to the northern by-pass, the M6, A69 and beyond to the Lake District, west Cumbria and Newcastle. Carlisle is beautifully placed for access to the regions areas of natural and historic interest and has the benefit of being on the west coast main line for direct services to Glasgow and London, and cross country to Edinburgh.
St Anns House is a wonderful family home. The south-easterly orientation allows for natural light to fill the principal rooms. The sitting room with its tall sash windows, period features and dual elevation provides a wonderful reception space. The fireplace houses a multi-fuel stove for warmth and atmosphere. The living room has three floor to ceiling sash windows which look onto the private garden. The living dining kitchen does not disappoint either having a range of fitted units and an island. The room features a bay window to the front garden elevation and a door and window to the side.
The first floor accommodation has a split landing and like the ground floor, is well appointed. The master bedroom is a particularly spacious affair, again flooded with natural light benefitting from its dual aspect. Of interest is the generous walk-in dressing room and ensuite. The second double bedroom also has an ensuite. Bedrooms three and four are served by the family bathroom.
St Anns House is a rather special property within the Carlisle market place. The combination of an expansive period home, coupled with private gardens and an accessible location, make this is an enviable package. Viewing is of course recommended.
