Only ten minutes' drive from the rolling green of Eskdale Valley and the rugged beauty of Wasdale, Holmrook sits on the crook of the River Irt, only a walk away from the dunes of Drigg beach. With all the varied beauty of England's coast and countryside at your fingertips, Carleton Green is also accessibly situated off the A595, and within easy reach of Sellafield.

Set upon aprox. 1.7 acres, Carleton Green is a handsome Grade-II listed home, exuding Georgian allure in its balanced and well-proportioned 1749 whitewashed façade. A substantially sized and versatile home, it lends itself to a litany of arrangements; from multigenerational living and business to Airbnb or holiday letting.

With a number of incarnations over the centuries, Carleton Green has served as a finishing school for Norwegian Girls, with evidence of its use as a guest house dating back to the 1910s and 1920s. Many locals fondly remember a butler by the name of Gilbert.

Successfully run for the last 30 years as a guest house, the home currently naturally divides into three areas, allowing for multigenerational living and guest house rental of rooms. Chameleon-like in its design, the second staircase allows for easy separation between guests and residents, offering a wide scope for both business and domestic use.

Ample parking is available to the front, with a driveway to the left-hand side and further parking to the rear.

Make your way indoors via a glazed porch, leaving the wider world behind. Emerging into the broad and bright entrance hall, sense the warm welcome so typical of a grand Georgian home, with lovely light proportions and where classic corbels and archways, cornicing and wide doorways combine.

Wooden flooring extends underfoot, whilst the original staircase sweeps up past an enormous sash window on the half landing ahead.

Classic Laura Ashley nudes and whites feature throughout the home, for a fresh and easy feel.

Emanating Regency glamour is the drawing room on the right, where sash windows draw in daylight from the front, framing views over the Muncaster fells. Above, elaborately detailed cornicing adds character, whilst a multifuel stove emanates warmth.

Across the hallway is the snug, where feature coving decorates the room once again and an open fire is nestled within a redbrick hearth. Multiple reception rooms add to the versatility of this home, providing pockets of privacy for all. Embellished by ornate plasterwork above the door, far reaching views over the countryside beckon from the sash window. A cosy room for intimate evenings, listening to music, the snug is a relaxing room.

Beyond the stairs arrive at a room currently serving as a kitchen, formerly a dining room, sitting room, bedroom and breakfast room, again highlighting the adaptability of the rooms at Carleton Green. Furnished with a freestanding Range, and overlooking the large garden to the rear, this room leads to a rear lobby and utility room.

Ideal for Airbnb or even business use, opposite the utility room is a large, accessible ground floor bedroom, with large sash windows bringing the greenery and light of the garden indoors. Retaining a feature fireplace and with an ensuite shower room, this bedroom has its own external access to a private terrace.

Returning to the main entrance hall, make your way along an inner hallway through to the kitchen. Underfoot, original slate flooring has been reclaimed from the garden and restored by the current owners, harmonising with the current furnishings which include a large Smeg Range and an oil-fired Aga. Other appliances include a fitted dishwasher.

To the left, pine floor replaces slate in an area where seating and a Jøtul gas stove provide a place for rest and relaxation after mealtimes, where a large sash window overlooks the fiery shades of a beech hedge.

Take the steps down to arrive at a handy downstairs WC and separate pantry on the right, with a utility room at the rear, featuring plumbing for washer and dryer, storage and a door opening out to the rear.

Finally arrive at a large, light filled living room, where sash windows overlook the lush green garden. Blush pink tones in the wallpaper add warmth alongside the Jøtul gas stove. A great size for families, double doors open out to the sociable decking - great for entertaining - where country views greet you and there is easy access outdoors for barbecues and parties.

From the entrance hall, take the sweeping Georgian staircase up, where the large sash window on the turn gives a glimpse of the scale of the sizeable garden, before arriving on the first-floor landing.

Turning left, make your way along to the end of the landing, where on the right is the master bedroom. Shimmering shades dress the walls, with morning sun entering through a window that looks out towards Muncaster Fell. Carpeted and spacious, with built-in storage the master bedroom also has access to its own ensuite, panelled to the lower walls and with a freestanding tub and separate shower. There is a large walk-in storage closet in the bathroom, ideal for all your linen.

Refreshment also awaits in the family bathroom across the landing, tiled underfoot and to the walls and furnished with shower, wash basin and WC. Light flourishes in through a large sash window overlooking the garden.

Currently accommodating an elegant four poster bed, highlighting the spacious proportions of this home, a second bedroom lies across the hall to the front of the home, overlooking the fields and fells through a large sash window. Shimmering nude shades feature with carpet underfoot.

Returning to the inner landing, note the kitchenette on the right, currently used as part of the home's function as a guest house.

Back across the landing a third double bedroom, spacious and light; neutral tones pervade with large sash windows drawing the surrounding countryside indoors. Freshen up in the ensuite, furnished with shower, wash basin and WC.

From the top of the main staircase, to the left, a doorway provides a natural separation between the two halves of the home, with the wing to this side having its own separate staircase.

On the left, earthy shades pervade in a fourth double bedroom, elegant in its décor and with fantastic views over the countryside to the front. Ensuite to this bedroom is a bathroom, part panelled to the walls and featuring rolltop bath, with showerhead attachment.

Continue through arriving at a fifth double bedroom on the left, where a large window to the front and arched window to the side draw in an abundance of daylight. A spacious room with so much character, there is room for all at Carleton Green. Close by is a large, contemporary bathroom, with clawfoot bath, vanity unit wash basin and a WC with a fantastic view over the garden.

Stairs to the left lead down to a quiet area of the home, with a dressing room with built in storage on the right.

At the end of this walkway arrive at a sixth double bedroom, where geometric wallpaper in neutral shades combines with soft grey and white walls. Carpeted and with a cosy cottage feel, due in part to the sloping roofline, a sash window from this bedroom overlooks the verdant garden.

Returning up to the main landing, ascend another set of stairs to the attic level, where a series of four rooms, (with restricted head height) offer vast potential. With three of the four rooms illuminated by Velux windows and an original cast iron skylight, these rooms are ideal for use as hobby rooms, craft rooms or as dens for children.

Mainly laid to lawn, the garden at Carleton Green is a varied and magical space, with hedgerows hiding secret lawns, and a wild garden ideal for attracting birds and wildlife and even an orchard, planted with half a dozen quince, apple, plum and medlar trees. Wisteria wends its way up an old tree, putting on a colourful and fragrant display in summer.

South-west facing, the garden is sheltered and sunny, enjoying its own microclimate. Safe and secure for children and pets, gates and hedges provide privacy and protection.

Soak up the sunshine on the decking where there is space for a hot tub. There is also a large terrace with a wood burner. Spring sees the gardens erupt in blossom as the mature magnolias bloom, whilst the sublime scent of the honeysuckle is a draw for butterflies and bees.

To the front left of the house, discover a 'secret garden', sheltered and sunny and for the use of the bed and breakfast clients.

Out and about
Enjoy the best of both worlds, nestled between the valleys of Wasdale and Eskdale and the west Cumbrian coastline.

A school bus service collects and drops off by the front gate, ferrying children to primary and secondary schools in the nearby villages of Gosforth, Eskdale Millom and Egremont. Also, being situated just south of Sellafield makes the home ideal for use as a guest house, convenient for managers and workers at the nearby powerplant.

For walkers, Carleton Green could not enjoy a better situation, only ten minutes from the rolling green valley of Eskdale and the dramatic fells of the Wasdale Valley. The spectacular sights of Stanley Ghyll waterfall are also nearby.
