A bargain at Beetham

Restored Grade II* listed Georgian mansion in Cumbria for sale for just £190 per square foot (a one bedroom flat for the same asking price in Mayfair is offered at £2,100 per square foot)

 

In London, £1.4 million ($2 million or €1.8 million) will buy you a somewhat compact one bedroom, fourth floor flat in Hay Hill, W1 but just 15 minutes south of the Lake District at Beetham in Cumbria for the same amount you could purchase a vast Grade II* listed country house.

Standing in 8.3 acres of land and 4.4 acres of woodland, 7,376 square foot Ashton House is priced at the equivalent of just £190 per square foot ($269 per square foot or €245 per square foot) compared to the £2,100 per square foot ($3,000 per square foot or €2,700 per square foot) sought for the previously mentioned 667 square foot Mayfair apartment. It has 5 reception rooms, 8 bedrooms and comes with a tennis court, outbuilding and double garage.

 

Built originally in 1678 but mainly dating to the 18th century, Ashton House has most recently been owned by Gordon Fairclough, the Chancellor of the Cumbria Commandery of the Order of St Lazarus, according to Wikipedia and has also been used as a wedding venue.

      • Perhaps not so surprising when you look up the credentials of the owner on the internet…
        ” A fellow of the Society of Antiquaries (Scotland), he is currently reading for a doctorate in History at Lincoln College, University of Oxford, where he is researching the architectural and cultural history of the Lake District’s country houses, having achieved a distinction at both MA in Antiques and at postgraduate studies at Oxford in Architectural History. His academic interests include the furniture of Gillows of Lancaster and the work of the architect-mason firm Websters of Kendal which built and remodelled numerous country houses in the region and manufactured marble chimneypieces for houses throughout North-West England during the Georgian period. His written work focusses on the region’s Georgian country houses, vernacular buildings and regional fireplace production, with two publications due in 2018…..Gordon Fairclough is currently available for consultation to private clients, architects and conservation bodies, by appointment, on a wide range of matters relating to the interiors and architectural history of the region’s country houses and vernacular buildings. Please email gordonfairclough@aol.com for further details of consultations.”

        • At any point did anybody ask for a detailed overview of 1 of the owners personal ‘credentials’ ? A person was simply stating that the TV didn’t fit in with the way in which the house was preserved, in terms of its Georgian style.
          Well you seem to know a lot about 1 of the owners, though i don’t believe you lived in the house itself did you?
          I believe it would be best to ask somebody who lived in the house, about matters concerning the house.
          I don’t particularly see the relevance in your comment.

    1. It’s far too big!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Knock it down or turn it into a home for Merkel’s asylum seekers!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    2. The classic English village house: Georgian, formal gardens, a tennis court and woodland; plenty of entertaining space and situated in beautiful countryside. An easy sell for any estate agent especially at this low price.
