Description

The Moat House is a remarkable residence brimming with history, character, and style.Part of the historic Stallion Stables. Located within the picturesque parkland of Thurland Castle in the Lune Valley, this prestigious property features a private garden with moat views, private parking, and double glazing. It offers an exceptional living experience for those seeking quality and security. Spanning two floors, the property includes three double bedrooms, with an en-suite to the master bedroom, a family bathroom, a dining kitchen, a morning room, and a drawing room.

This unique property and its surroundings can only truly be appreciated through viewing, as the grandeur of the castle, alongside the charismatic interior of the property, is exquisite. Through the estate’s electronic gates lies a tree-lined drive, leading to a charming bridge and portcullis, connecting to the property, over the original moat. Once across, the castle and its striking appearance are revealed, along with the luxury developments within.

This property is found within the grounds of a significant 12th-century castle. With stunning open aspects, it rests between the breath-taking English Lake District and the acclaimed moors of the Yorkshire Dales National Park. Just a short drive out of the estate sits the thriving market town of Kirkby Lonsdale. This picturesque area provides visitors with a tranquil base from which to explore the nearby Lake District, famously used as a place of inspiration by literary figures such as Ruskin and Charlotte Bronte, who both stayed at Thurland Castle, Ruskin brought his arts and crafts influence to many of the original interiors.

Boasting 10 acres of landscaped gardens, home to an abundance of local wildlife, and encompassed by the castle’s impressive moat, Thurland Castle still offers all the unique character of a historic structure, combined with its restoration to compliment 21st-century living. Constructed of sandstone and slate, with embattled parapets, the castle displays an iconic mixture of Elizabethan and Gothic Revival architecture.

Just a 10-minute drive from Kirkby Lonsdale’s town centre and several Ofsted-rated “Outstanding” education providers, along with Casterton Preparatory School, this breath-taking home provides the perfect balance of both private and convenient living. In addition to double garage with electric doors, and access to additional private and visitor parking, residents can also enjoy access to a large tennis court, located within the estate’s communal gardens.
