Lakeland Arts and Crafts-style property comes to market valued at £2.4m

Lingy Acre

A detached Lakeland period house with views to the surrounding majestic fells is on the market for offers in the region of £2.4m.

Dating from 1901 and enjoying an exclusive private side road setting at Portinscale, near Keswick, Lingy Acre was designed in an appealing Arts and Crafts style and was featured in the January 1912 edition of Country Life.

Nick Elgey, Property Sales and Marketing Consultant for Hackney and Leigh, who is managing the sale, said: “Lingy Acre is a wonderful Arts and Crafts house with extensive, beautifully-mature gardens and an idyllic Lakeland setting.

“Properties with these combined attributes are immensely appealing and are rarely offered for sale. New Road in Portinscale is a highly desirable residential location and includes an impressive variety of individually styled houses, some of which were designed by William Henry Ward, the acclaimed architectural assistant to Sir Edwin Lutyens.”

The property, which nestles on an 0.8-acre site, includes five bedrooms, four bath/shower rooms, three reception rooms, a study, and an impressive orangery. There is a double garage and an oak-framed treble garage.

The grounds include an entrance driveway and expansive gravel-surfaced courtyard parking areas.

The gardens comprise extensive lawns, an abundance of stocked and shrubbed borders, hedgerows, established trees, a large paved entertaining terrace, paved and gravel-surfaced seating areas, a pergola and a garden store.

Located on the shores of Derwentwater, Portinscale village is conveniently situated off the A66 only 1.5 miles west of Keswick and provides a variety of local amenities, including two marinas, a village hall, public house and café.
