A former school, boasting panoramic views across the Lake District National Park, has been listed on the market for a guide price of £525,000.

The four-bedroom family home, named Wickersgill, enjoys its vantage point on an elevated position.

The property listing by David Britton Estates highlights how the structure has been extended over the years, resulting in an 'architecturally interesting' home.

The home, 'immaculately presented throughout', is located near the popular village of Shap.

The house's almost 2500sq.ft of living space spans multiple levels, blending traditional features with modern additions.

With a rich past as a school, this home accommodates spaces perfectly suited for a large family or potential landlords looking to rent out an Airbnb or holiday cottage-type property.

The adaptable home, which includes three 'very large' ensuite bedrooms, features a fitted kitchen complete with a WOLF stove and a large lounge complete with a beamed ceiling and wood-burning stove.

David Britton Estates points out the showstopper in this property, an elevated sitting room in the centre of the home with full glazed panels and a balcony.

This room, featuring glorious views of the expansive countryside, is ideal for enjoying evening sunsets.

The completely tiled room also features LED lighting, an extractor fan, a wall mounted heated towel rail and a wall mounted mirror.

A garden room enjoys 'amazing views' across to Haweswater and the Lakeland fells.

It is glazed on two-and-a-half sides with a tiled floor and has ample room for a sofa.
