INTRODUCTION With a backdrop of Lakeland Fells and rolling hills, Houkler Hall is a detached period farmhouse with documents dating back to 1611. Set within approximately 7 acres, the property has been in the same family ownership for over 60 years and has a flexible layout that could be adapted for modern living. Features have been retained throughout and the accommodation is of a good size over two levels, some modernisation is required and this could become a 'forever home'. The current layout has been adapted in more recent years to create annexe accommodation for a dependent relative, however this could be easily integrated back into the original house. Adjacent to the property is a detached stone barn, also offering exciting opportunities. A wonderful opportunity for buyers looking to enjoy the rural life in a fantastic setting.

Just a couple of miles from the southern shores of Coniston Water and set in the stunning Crake Valley, Blawith is a hamlet with good road links to the A590, Barrow and Ulverston. Hiking, riding and cycle routes are on the doorstep with Grizedale Forest a short drive away.
