DESCRIPTION Alstonby Hall is a wonderful property built in the early 19th century as a single story shooting lodge. A double story extension was added later. The Grade II Listing is testament to the property's architectural interest and great character. The pillared entrance to the original lodge is most impressive as are the pale sandstone elevations and ornate windows. The property is generous in size being around 5,000 sq. ft and comprises a fabulous and generous 2 bed, 2 bath annex/holiday cottage which is income producing and a large 4 bed house. It is independent yet also accessible to the house if required. The main house does not disappoint either having splendid reception rooms with fine features including ornate plastered ceilings. The breakfast kitchen has an Aga and the house has plenty of options for those that wish to work from home. The expansive gardens complement the property so well and the moment you approach via the sweeping tree lined drive it is clear that this is an individual property of merit. Set within extensive grounds totalling 2.9 acres and including a small paddock the property also benefits from fishing rights on the nearby River Lyne. 

Alstonby Hall is a charming and special place to live in. The property is as we have described versatile and has served the current owners well as a home and income generating investment. The property has more potential and will require some further upgrading to bring out the best in the long term. Viewing is certainly advised to appreciate all that is on offer.
