Become Lord of your own manor!
For sale, a distinguished Cumbrian residential country estate, with Grade II listed manor house, land, lawns and a Lordship.
We recently launched to market Lowick Hall , a stunning countryside estate that comes with a Lordship over the Manor of Lowick, and a history dating back to William the Conqueror. Located in the south western area of the Lake District, Lowick Hall is a Grade II listed manor house with landscaped grounds and over 20 acres of land. Close to the village of Lowick, and only a few miles away from Coniston Water, the Hall is surrounded by a beautiful landscape of valleys, hidden tarns and low fells. This is the ideal location to explore the Lake District.
The magnificent four bedroom manor house has been carefully cared for and very well maintained. The striking grounds are enclosed within a ring fence and include impressive woodlands, three paddocks and a babbling beck. Being sold through our Kendal office, Lowick Hall is being sold by private treaty with a guide price of £2,000,000.
On announcing details of the sale Colin Tomlinson, Managing Director of H&H Land & Estates said: “Lowick Hall is the epitome of a ring-fenced English country estate and it is very rare we see such a magnificent property of this calibre coming onto the open market, and even more rare for a property to come with its own lordship.
The entire estate has been very well looked after and not only is it providing someone with the chance to own a part of the Lakes district, they will also be owning a piece of English history. I am sure there will be plenty of interest as appetite for rural properties remains high especially in this part of the Lake District.”
Lowick Hall’s various reception rooms, include two dining rooms, two studies, a drawing room, breakfast room, and library featuring a dent fossil marble fireplace. Part of the original house, the old great hall displays a flagged stone floor, exposed beams, and an oversized recessed decorative fireplace. Attached to the side of the house is a domed ceiling conservatory that leads out onto the gardens and grounds. The bedrooms are all large, and retain many original features.
A sweeping circular gravel driveway surrounds a front lawn showcasing an ornamental pond and a water feature, leading up to the grand sandstone entrance. There are a range of outbuildings, including a traditional coach house barn, workshops, garden stores and a garage complex, which has been fitted with a continuous current swim spa. The grounds include avenues of beech trees and moss covered pathways that lead to a Japanese garden, a stone circle, the former kitchen garden and a terraced walk.
Lowick Hall has a rich history and was first owned by Ivo de Taillebois, a Norman baron, in 1091. The existing house dates from the late sixteenth century and is based on a Pele tower. In the 1740s a Georgian main block was built with the sandstone porch being added in the 1800s. The hall was hereditarily passed down and was first sold after the Second World War. In 1948 the estate was purchased by Arthur Ransome, the celebrated children’s author of Swallows and Amazons. The current owners have published an illustrated history of the hall.
