A striking country residence, echoing architectural nuances of the Bronte sisters' family home, is up for sale in Cumbria's Crosby Garrett.

Mossgill House is a property bearing a rich history and architectural symmetry with the Bronte's famous 'Parsonage' house in Haworth, Yorkshire.

The house was designed by the same architect responsible for curating the Parsonage home, with both featuring an identical entrance hall.

David Britton, managing director of David Britton Estates, said: "I love properties with a rich heritage and a tale to tell, and Mossgill House ticks all the boxes.

"The connection to the Bronte family is fascinating; parts of Mossgill are a direct replica of The Parsonage, which is now a popular tourist attraction.

"This property is substantial, with an acre of fantastic grounds.

"It’s full of history, charm, and a real touch of class."

Built around 1747, Mossgill was frequently visited by sisters Charlotte, Emily, and their father, Patrick Bronte, who was a close acquaintance of the Rev. William Fawcett, Mossgill's resident during that period.

More than 275 years since its creation, much of Mossgill's original architecture remains intact, earning it a Grade II listed status.

The main residence offers a luxuriant range of original period features.

High beamed ceilings, 'superb' fireplaces, stone-flagged floors and 'ornate' cornicing add to its antiquated charm.

Spread over four levels, it includes two cellars with barrel-vaulted ceilings and three spacious reception rooms on the ground floor.

Further inclusions are a snug, traditional dining kitchen with original range and a utility room providing access to a large barn.

A grand Georgian staircase ascends to four bedrooms, an office and a family bathroom on the first floor, with two large double bedrooms and an additional bathroom on the second floor.

Spectacular views over far-stretched countryside and hills can be savoured from every rear window.

The property also incorporates an adjoining home, once a cow byre and then a Baptist chapel until around 20 years ago, ideal for multi-generational living or rental income.

Mossgill House is blessed with vast outdoor spaces, consisting of sprawling lawns, flourishing flower beds, a damson orchard, patio terraces and a tennis court.

The garden, a wildlife haven, is well established, offering numerous spots to relish the scenic beauty of the bordering hills.

Mossgill House is being marketed for £995,000.
