These fabulous stone barns combine rustic character and charm with modern living requirements.
The properties are being finished to a high specification with extensive use of solid oak for internal joinery, doors, floors, stairs / balustrades and exposed beams etc. Quality finishes / fittings also include well appointed fitted kitchens and ensuite bathrooms / shower rooms.
The construction includes very high levels of insulation in walls, roofs, and floors, to meet modern energy efficiency standards, double glazing throughout together with under floor heating on the ground floor.
A “Lex Com" system provides integrated telephone / computer / TV points in most rooms.
These properties are part of a high quality farm courtyard development comprising of six properties arranged around a spacious central courtyard to be laid with contrasting coloured setts.
The development is set well back from the road and occupies a particularly outstanding elevated position above the small village of Torpenhow.
The show houses barn E and barn A (which was sold recently) are also available for inspection by arrangement through the Agent's, and will give a very good indication of the high standard of Workmanship. Indeed Barn A has secured the well known local builder a “Built in Quality Award" 2011.

There are ample parking / turning areas, garage and large rear garden. Surrounded by open fields, there are magnificent views over rural Northwest Cumbria and the Solway Firth towards the mountains of Southwest Scotland.
Whitrigg Hall, which is located just outside the Lake District National Park boundary, has easy access to the many attractions of the National Park and the Solway Firth Coastline, together with good road links to the west Coast towns of Workington, Whitehaven, and Maryport, the attractive market town of Cockermouth (8 miles) and the county town of Carlisle to the North.
From Keswick take the A591 Bassenthwaite Road to the east side of Bassenthwaite Lake. Continue beyond Bassenthwaite towards Bothel passing the Castle Inn on the left hand side.
Continue past the turnings on the righthand side for Bewaldeth, and take the next turning to the right sign posted Whitrigg.
Continue along this road for approximately 1.5 miles, and just before arriving at Whitrigg Hall Farm the road bends sharply to the right and then to the left, the entrance to Whitrigg Hall Farm being a short distance along the road on the righthand side after the second of these two sharp bends.
Mains electricity and water are connected.
The gas supply is liquid propane gas stored in nearby underground tanks to serve the whole development of six properties, each property being separately metered. This supply functions like a mains supply and is monitored remotely by BP who refill the tanks as necessary.
Drainage is to a new private drainage system, again serving all six properties and the annual maintenance and running cost of the system will be met equally by the property owners.
An intruder alarm is installed.
All measurements taken off plan, and therefore it should be noted that actual measurements may vary.
